The Laziest Recipe I Know! (Vanilla and Fruit Protein Smoothie)

The Laziest Recipe I Know! (Vanilla and Fruit Protein Smoothie)

Today was my first day back at Orange Theory after being sick for a week and oh my goodness was I in need of recovery after. One of my favorite things to make after an intense workout is a vanilla and fruit protein smoothie! This recipe is perfect for summer and makes enough for two and then some! P.S I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL SMOOTHIE MAKER OR CHEF 🙂 Incase you thought I was Gordon Ramsey, I bet he makes…

Staying Fit by Sharing on Social Media

Staying Fit by Sharing on Social Media

We all know that one person on our Facebook page or Instagram that posts one too many photos of themselves at the gym. Or maybe it is the person that sends out a tweet every time they loose a pound? I have been guilty of the person behind the computer screen that rolls her eyes and says “well good for you”. I used to think that these over sharers on Social Media were vain and annoying. However after starting this…

Working Out When Sick – To Push Through or Crawl Back into Bed?

Working Out When Sick – To Push Through or Crawl Back into Bed?

<a href=”http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/16570581/?claim=qtenctjmt9e”>Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a> Now normally I would find any excuse to not hit the gym and stay in bed all day long, but for the past month I have been on a mission to become fit and fabulous. Granted, I have yet to give up my multiple cheat days and beer. After all, this blog is not about crash diets or killing yourself at the gym twice a day. Instead I am in search of finding the…

Taking on my first 30 day Challenge!

Taking on my first 30 day Challenge!

Well I can blame my husband for this one. He had the bright idea to have me try a 30 day, 60 day, and 90 challenge for my readers.  So after looking through hundreds of pins (pinterest) on squat challenges, arms, legs, and everything in between, I have decided to take on getting bikini ready with the 30 day summer abs challenge by fitnessrepublic.com https://fitnessrepublic.com/fitness/exercises/30-day-summer-abs-challenge.html Okay so I may have chosen an easy one to begin with, but look at…

HIIT(ing) it Hard- High Intensity Interval Training

HIIT(ing) it Hard- High Intensity Interval Training

I am seriously obsessed. Every time I sign up for a class, I feel a moment of dread, but as soon as my heart is racing I can’t help but feel a sense of pride. A few weeks ago I joined Orange Theory Fitness. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, other than it would kick my ass! As a Lazy Lady, I tend to put in the minimum effort at a workout. When I made the commitment…

Spaghetti Squash Obsession – My Pasta Substitute

Spaghetti Squash Obsession – My Pasta Substitute

I love carbs, but carbs really love me…as in they stick around and give me my love handles and jiggly thighs. So one of my favorite pasta substitutes that I would love to share with you on this Wellness Wednesday is the magic of Spaghetti Squash. Trust me, when I first saw this appearing everywhere on Pinterest, I had my doubts. Just looking at the squash in my local grocery store made me hesitant to try it. I mean seriously,…

The Importance of Having a Bucket List

The Importance of Having a Bucket List

It’s hard to stay focused when our lives are consumed with work and our day to day struggles. Time escapes me and I am constantly asking myself “how is it already June?”One trick that I use to keep myself focused on what really matters in life is to keep and maintain a bucket list. A bucket list is a list that can either be in your head or written down on paper. I usually choose to keep it written down…

Exercise can be a pain in the…back

Exercise can be a pain in the…back

In today’s blog I wanted to share with you one of the obstacles I deal with in working out. Not only do I sit for long and extended periods of time, but my husband and I were both in a car accident about a year ago. The car accident left me with major back pain and put my workouts at a stand still for a very long time. I honestly believe my husband or I could have been seriously injured…

Motivation Monday

Motivation Monday

Happy Motivation Monday everyone! Even if your Monday wasn’t as productive as you had hoped, I am here to get you motivated for the rest of your week. I would like to talk about finding “motivation” when it seems like all you want to do is crawl back into bed. Today was probably one of the worst mornings for me and my fitness. #1 This weekend I scratched my eye (not sure how) and I was in pain most of…

Cheat Day: Cherry Cricket

Cheat Day: Cherry Cricket

Here is the first of many cheat day blog posts. People will either love it or hate it. I only share these so that other Lazy Ladies can relate with the struggle and realize that we don’t need to sacrifice our happiness to be stick thin. My philosophy is that there is absolutely no point in punishing yourself when trying to stay healthy and lose weight. You need to allow yourself to have fun. Honestly nothing makes you more depressed…
