the at-home workout epidemic

So how is your quarantine going? Mine is actually going pretty well believe it or now. I am crossing so many things off my “To Do Eventually” list, moving more throughout my day, and feeling overall more relaxed (you know, when I’m not thinking about the news and current events and future…). One day at a time everybody!

gluten-free, vegan pumpkin loaf

Happy quarantine day….. 10? 11? Does anyone know? I don’t. I do know that I stocked up on canned pumpkin. Why? Well, I panicked in the grocery store and bought what was left, and what was familiar. Hence, canned pumpkin!

Scroll down for the recipe below! It is so yum! Very moist, and reminds me of Starbucks pumpkin bread!

quarantine time

It’s crazy to think about how much has changed these last few weeks/days/hours. The world is a very different place. I am taking this time to get back to doing everything I love that I have been missing like personal training and blogging. I am posting workouts to my instagram that can be done with minimal equipment and include modifications to movement and equipment. I will be posting those videos here as well for you all.

There is so much to catch up on this blog, but I will slowing start updating things and find my ground again as I start posting again.

For now, stay kind, stay loving, stay inside or outside and six feet away from people.

summer of wellnesss

My oh my, where has the summer gone?  It’s officially fall here in Colorado.  The weather has been cooler, a slight breeze to the air, and sweater and boot season is upon us.  I am happy fall is here.  For me, seasons are a time of change and renewal.  Fall for me is a time when I start to calm down, slow down and streamline a lot of the business in my life.

meal preppin’ once again

After much back and forth {and to be honest laziness}, I decided it was time to meal prep for the week once again.  This has been a back and forth relationship indeed.  I used to go over the top with the prep and it ended up stressing me out–not the end goal.  After trial and error, I’ve found the best way for me, and here is how it goes… Continue reading

back to my regularly scheduled program

I am back baby!  Back to my regularly scheduled program.  Last week and this week, I consistently got in the gym, something I use to do an auto pilot.  It turns out though (I will say this over and over again), that when I spend the day programming and training for others, my workout plans go out the window.  For a while that was just fine with me.  I needed a rest, my days were jam packed, I was still staying active in my days… but my body adapted and got used to my non-training life, so I ramped up and prioritized my own workouts and I have never felt this good in a while!

take a hike

Sometimes I just have to get outside and move.  I have been feeling unmotivated and uninspired in the gym setting.  This past Saturday, however, was the first warm, beautifully sunny Saturday I’ve had in a while.  I had no agenda.  No work.  No exams.  Just nothing.  That is truly beautiful to me.

train it tuesday trx & squats

This week’s work out includes the use of a TRX suspension system, or you can use gymnastics rings.  You need some kind of suspension for rows or ring rows, where you hold on to the grips and pull your body up to the grips/handles/rings.  It’s always a bonus to add a second pause at the top of the pull.  Try it for yourself!

thai turkey chili

It may be Spring, but in Colorado, that still means cold, windy and/or snowy days here and there.  And when that happens, I am in the mood for something to warm me up, so how about some chili?  Thai Turkey Chili to be exact!  It’s so good.  Good things can happen when you have some random ingredients laying around.
