The next celeb beauty to release a fitness clothing line is…

Carrie Underwood!

Did you know? I just discovered the link on Dicks Sporting Goods and its happening this month! She’s a talented singer, but I’ve always heard she’s not such a nice person. {Even her mom admits it. Just sayin.} Wonder if “Calia” will win me over…

I want to pump. you. up.

In the words of Arnold, acutally, Hanz & Franz… I want to pump. you. up.

I haven’t been steady on here, but lots of moving parts and trying to take the necessary steps to big things!

1. Moved. Closer to all the people, places, i need to be and see on a more consistent basis.

2. Booked flights & hotel to Arnold Sports Festival aka the olympics of lifting and so many other amazing things that require incredible strength. There will be so much for me to absorb here both personally and professionally for the future.

 

Everyone is going to music festivals…

And I’m over here trying to go to fitness festivals…

3. Started a 10 week plan from T-Nation. Don’t hold me to all 10 weeks, but so far so good. Week 1 is just about complete. I was sore and challenged, but can definitely do more so I’m hoping the progression aspect will push the limits.

Just enjoying the journey 🙂

Lets talk homemade breakfast versus ‘to-go’. We all know it’s better to make things at home, but how much healthier is it really? If you only look at calories, 410 vs 328 is less than 100 calorie difference! And when getting ready for work in the morning, odds are, the easiest option wins. 82 calories sounds like NBD at that moment, but is it? Decide for yourself, based on the northeast’s beloved Wawa Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Sizzli versus my own “Bigg Egg n Turkey Bacon Breakfast” (descriptive, isn’t it?).
