Personal Training

I’m not all too sure how people with full-time jobs also find the time to blog- unless of course, their full time job IS their blogging- in which case I am extremely jealous because I would love to just type, type, type away all day long. I say that only half-heartedly because I find myself … Continue reading

A New Way to Work Out

Let’s do a quick recap, shall we? Rewind all the way back to last Thursday… [Photo Credit: Yessenia Carrera**] [Photo Credit: Yessenia Carrera**] Yessenia was gracious enough to agree to take corny/cheesy pictures of Mayra and I. They were graduation-esque pictures and a lot of them were supposed to be of us in our cap … Continue reading

New Job, New Information

Hi Everyone! Absolutely chaos is in full-swing as I continue to live out of the boxes piled high in my room that shares the same roof and my parents’ room… which is a different post all together. The craziness of adjusting to life as a full-time student (read: option to skip class) to being a … Continue reading

Celebratory Pedicures

Today started out just as I had planned- a sweaty, awesome workout with Katie. We hit up the treadmills for 20minutes of HIIT that I kind of made up as I went along. For me, doing Tabata on the treadmill is a pain in the ass because of how often you need to change the … Continue reading

Running Like a Spring Chicken

It just has not been my time in internet-land for these past 24 hours. Long story short, upon trying to submit my 200-point, 2 hour final online last night, the internet cut out, forcing me to get into an email argument with the professor and having to take it again. Taking it a second time … Continue reading

But, almost as if the universe registered me as FitFluential, these things … Continue reading

Eating Habits & Significant Others

Just finished two finals for the day and I’m taking a little break to write before I jump back into studying- oh, the joys of being an undergraduate. Speaking of which, today is the last day of instructional classes of my undergraduate career. Instead of actual class, I had a final in both of my … Continue reading

What I’m Loving Lately

I wish I wasn’t so technologically challenged so that I could figure out how to upload the Daily Mile widget to this site… that’ll have to wait for another day because Yessenia has a bunch of finals this week. I have a bunch of finals too, but I’ve lost any and all motivation to continue … Continue reading

My First Half-Marathon: A Recap & a Journey

Hopefully you can see that! If you click on it, it will enlarge (I hope!) Those are my half-marathon stats. Here’s the breakdown: Mile 1 was pretty much downhill so I was coasting down at about a 9min/mile pace and whizzed by the 2:15 pace girl and decided to slow the eff down. Stephen cruised … Continue reading
