30 Day Challenge: Day 8 & 9

30 Day Challenge: Day 8 & 9

Happy Memorial Day! Despite having to work today, I am happy to say today was a great day to work out. When I began this challenge, I knew there may be portions of it that I may have to break up into multiple sets of smaller reps. Fortunately, the only one I am having to […]

30 Day Challenge: Day 6 & 7

This weekend has been a bit of an off weekend for my blogging about my 30 Day Challenge. Between spending some much needed quality time with my son, working and of course, working out, I figured it would be okay if I didn’t blog for a few days. What I do want to talk about […]

Some days it’s not as easy to get motivated to work out. Today for example, I was excited to get out of work at a decent time. Though I wouldn’t have time to run before picking up my son, I knew I had plenty of time to fit it in before dark. Of course, I […]
