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

WHAT NOT TO DO

I just did a rough estimate of how many calories I ate yesterday… (In case you missed it, click here and here to read about my personal metabolic discovery and why I need to shovel food into my face in order to lose weight.) and I know that this isn’t exactly accurate, BUT according to … Continue reading

Running & CrossFit

I literally ate myself silly this weekend. This is what happens when I have too much time on my hands- I’m so bored that I convince myself that I am hungry. It’s probably in my best interest to NOT gain 10 pounds before the half marathon in fear that my body will be incapable of … Continue reading

Turkey & Bacon

I’m not even going to try and hide it. I went to Panera last night, and ordered a Panini…it had not only turkey on it, but bacon. But you know what? I didn’t even enjoy it. It honestly didn’t even taste good and I didn’t finish it. Within 20 minutes of eating it, I felt … Continue reading

Out of Shape.

Yikes! I mentioned the other day that I was excited to get back into the weight room. I started following Jamie Eason’s Live Fit Trainer (sort of…but more on that later) which I thought was going to be a breeze- mostly because phase 1 is meant to “build muscular endurance.” Build muscular endurance? Ha! Or … Continue reading

Sugar Addiction

I’ve never had a sweet tooth. And by never, I mean never. I can remember going with my sister and grandparents to visit my cousins who lived about on hour away. Every Wednesday, we would  pack up the car, head to their house, and somewhere midpoint, my grandpa would stop at a Dunkin Donuts for … Continue reading

Hello Again!

Oh my goodness! Well, I survived Europe! It was exhausting, exciting, and definitely a trip I’ll never forget. Australia still remains to be the time of my life though! Being so far removed from my daily routines makes it tricky to keep track of how much exercise I’m getting and the amount of food I’m … Continue reading

Pancakes for Breakfast.

My sister was home for the first time this weekend in a long time. She’s two years younger than me, and just like with most siblings- we fight. I’m pretty sure her and I created UFC. No, I’m being serious. When we were younger, you would have thought that her and I were boys with how we … Continue reading

Random Thoughts & Happiness

I was going to run outside a bunch of times when I got home for break, remember? It’s frighteningly windy outside. My mom has a bunch of wind chimes hanging by the back door and they are going insane… Lucky for me, I have a treadmill in the living room that is looking a lot better than … Continue reading

The world is so beautiful..

I decided against a nap yesterday and ended up just sucking it up and going to the gym. I did lower body + abs. But I just wasn’t mentally into my workout. I got through it but I was never really feeling it, which is odd for me because I absolutely love lifting. Oddly enough, … Continue reading
