Total Body Circuit Workout

Total Body Circuit Workout

So now that I’m done with grad school, I have time to get on the cute workout graphic bandwagon. I always love these sort of things so when Matt and I did a really fun circuit style workout on Saturday in Chapel Hill I thought you all would enjoy it if I shared!   We set out to do a normal run but decided it would be more fun (and good for Continue Reading …

Any guesses who is standing between me and my friend Tina in the photo below, taken on Friday at Reebok CrossFit ONE? Why, it’s Julie Foucher (pronounced Foo-shay)! Julie finished 2nd overall in the 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games, earning her the title of 2nd fittest woman on earth. Impressive, right? Not only did we get to work out Continue Reading …

Good morning, friends! I haven’t shared pictures of any of my packed lunches lately, so I thought today would be a good day to bring it back. :) My lunches continue to be quick and easy and made in the morning right before I rush out the door.

Good morning! Matt and I made it to Crossfit Dupont last night and I’m so glad we did — one of my favorite workouts yet! It was HARD but engaging.

To be honest, I’ve been feeling really overwhelmed lately with everything Continue Reading …

CrossFit, Here We Come!

Guess what I did last night for the first time ever? Dead lifted 100 pounds! :) I’ve actually never even done a dead lift before, so that was a first, too! I’ve been hearing so much about CrossFit lately and ever since I tried it for the first time at Reebok One a few weeks ago I’ve been really wanting to try it again! As luck would Continue Reading …

First Time Paddle Boarding!

Guess what I tried yesterday for the first time? Paddle boarding! My dad was actually the one that instigated this fun outing — he wanted to try it so he asked if Matt and I wanted to join, too. Of course we were on board! I love anything involving sports and water. :) We rented the paddle boards from Jack’s Boathouse in Georgetown and Continue Reading …
