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

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


“A growing family of fitness fanatics spreading a positive, healthy message year-round. FitFluential is Fitness Found.” I recently became a FitFluential Ambassador– which pretty much only means that I get to use the FitFluential hashtag on Twitter and call myself a FitFluential Ambassador.

Stephen cruised … Continue reading

Pictures, Updates, & a Karma Cleanse

Not one, but TWO separate bouquets I got from two different tumblers this past weekend for the second Tumble Show at the Park district. So great! One of the bouquets was from Bella and her family. I love this little girl with my whole heart. She’s been struggling with being adopted and feeling out of … Continue reading

A … Continue reading

Whey-ing My Protein Options (Ha!)

I wrote this post last week and forgot to post it- woops- so here it is: Intuitively, I am doubting my RMR. I don’t know why, but I just feel like something went wrong. I know, SHUT UP ABOUT MY FUCKING RMR ALREADY. But no.
 How am I burning almost double the amount of a … Continue reading

Tricky, Little Bitch

I’m waiting for my food to digest before I head out to do a speed workout… The past couple of days I have been extremely frustrated with my body and my eating- and then it hit me this morning- I am PMSing. (Sorry, dudes.) For all of you ladies out there- I seriously sometimes forget … Continue reading
