Ab Workout


I am a firm believer that diet plays an integral role in achieving a toned and fit body. I also believe that exercise plays an important role as well. That being said here is an ab workout that I did today:

What’s your opinion?


Daily Workout

You know it was a great workout when your legs are sore for the next few days! Feel the burn!


Cardio: 45 minute spin class (with the best playlist ever – I will share in a future post)


So I had a bit of a setback this past week…I injured my Achilles tendon. Just normal walking causes incredible pain and trying to run was an even worse idea. Nevertheless I have made it to the gym! This is still my month and I can definitely say that my eating has been clean and healthy. I have been loving pomegranates this past month! If you haven’t tried them you definitely need to! Who doesn’t love an antioxidant filled fruit with immune supporting effects? For tips on how to pick them check this link: http://iowagirleats.com/2012/01/25/how-to-eat-a-pomegranate/

Keep up the good work! 

Halloween Weekend


Hope everyone had a great weekend! I went to the gym yesterday with temporary tattoos and crimped red hair…clearly I went as a rocker chick the night before. No shame though because I made it to the gym while everyone was sleeping off their hangovers. Needless to say this weekend was a success! Plus I didn’t eat a single piece of candy. Remember November is my month!! We are doing this and starting off strong is the right way to go.

Saturday’s Workout:

– Abs

  • Bicycle crunches – 3 sets x 20 reps
  • Crunches – 3 x 20
  • Leg lifts – 3 x 15
  • Plank – 3 x 30 seconds
  • Side plank – 3 x 30 seconds each side

– Cardio: 3 mile run

Back on the grind!

Saying this past month has been busy would be an understatement! It has been crazy, hectic and everywhere in between. Thankfully the month is coming to an end with one of my favorite holidays of the year…HALLOWEEN! I hope everyone has been working hard to get into shape to look good in their costumes!

Although I haven’t posted at all this past month doesn’t mean that I have not been working out. I would be lying if I didn’t admit that I haven’t been spending as much time as I would like to in the gym, but that is going to change! I am declaring November as MY MONTH. It is time to spend on myself, working on getting into kick ass shape by eating clean and training dirty. You should join in too! The thing about fitness is that it is a lifestyle not a fad diet.

So glad to be back! Happy training!
