Updates on a long week, fitness & weight loss

It’s been a very busy week.

Love getting up to teach my class on the morning, especially when friends show up to break a sweat! The beginning of the year is filled with new faces and full parking lots but that is an opportunity to make new friends and motivate some new people. Don't

It’s launch week at the gym so I’ve been teaching and trying to attend classes as much as possible.

Had round 2 of teaching this afternoon and then attended #centergy for a nice stretch. The Mossa releases are really great for Jan 2016. Come give group fitness a try! #ffcheckin #geauxrunla #nuunyear16 #fitness #fitfam #fitfluential #sweatpink #weightlos

It’s always exciting to get people excited about working out and trying some new stuff.  It’s not exciting to not want to sit on bike by the week.  Plus, I’ve been really busy with work.  My mom had a knee replacement surgery during Thanksgiving but she hasn’t been cleared to drive so I also need to make sure she’s taken care of in the meantime.  It’s just been a lot at one time.

Just finished my first #run in 12 days. Felt great and I'm glad I took the time off to rest and recover. 3.5 miles at a 10:11 pace which makes me super happy. I've missed #running and I can't wait to #geauxrunla this weekend. I'm off to teach a class now.

And of course, I’ve been worried about my leg but I’ve been taking it easy.  I’ve really laid off of running so I took my first run on the road on Wednesday and felt great.  I even ran some negative splits which is what I needed to make sure I could handle Louisiana Marathon weekend.

Plus, I haven’t been really together since the year started.  I haven’t been getting my calendar together and I haven’t really planned anything.  Things have just been crazy.  When I finally had time to sit down yesterday to work on the blog, I decided that I should take the time to really get organized.  I’ve been wasting so much time looking for things around the house so I thought it was time to make a change.  I’m sorry the blog had to take a back seat.  I know I won’t be able to move forward with things like this until I just really get my shizz together.


I can say we have been meal prepping and really keeping things together in that realm.  And obviously, you know I’ve been working out so I’m doing great there too.  I’m proud to tell everyone that Willie has lost 21 pounds since he started his weight loss journey.

Willie weight loss update and help me with a meal prep guide

Hey all! I should have gotten this up this morning but I’ve been swamped at work. It’s been pretty trying latey.

What type of things would you like to see in a meal prep guide? This idea won’t go anywhere unless I get… View Post

Beginner Treadmill Workout for Willie’s Birthday

Beginner Treadmill Workout for Willie’s Birthday

I don’t know if any of you remember, but Willie and I started our weight loss journey on the treadmill.  We scheduled out the time to walk on the treadmill for roughly 35 minutes a day. Willie literally walked off 150 pounds. I know the treadmill gets a bad wrap, especially by me, because people claim it to be boring. But the truth is: you can get a great cardio workout on a treadmill.  Do I enjoy running 15 miles on a treadmill?  Nope, but I do like walking on the treadmill.  It’s easier to keep pace and to keep… View Post

Time to catch up

Time to catch up

I’ve been out of this week. I’ve been out of touch and haven’t really been living the plan. It’s kind of made me a little chaotic and doing some weird things. No talk about meal prepping this week because I didn’t cook this week. Plus, I had been stock piling meals for these weeks when I knew I was going to be super busy and wouldn’t have enough time to prep. So we’ve been eating a lot of the same. Willie made this deliciousness for dinner this week. I’ve been enjoying it! I’m glad that he’s back to cooking and… View Post

Five years of being married…

Five years of being married…

Five years ago today, I married my best friend. I don’t want to make it about anything other than what it is. This is a day that Willie and I decided that we would become family. We promised to take care of each other and love each other unconditionally. Willie is the kindest, most compassionate person that I know. He’s truly the best and I can’t express how I feel with words. We’ve done some amazing things together and I can’t wait to experience more of life with him. Thank you to my wonderful husband for showing me the best… View Post
