Orange Theory Fitness

Orange Theory Fitness

To say I was afraid was an understatement. I just moved offices near an Orange Theory Fitness studio, and each day I have walked past it, wanting to try it, but scared that it may actually kill me. I owe my bravery to this blog. My dedication to making decent and entertaining blog posts is so sincere, that I pushed myself into that studio and lasted for the entire 60 minute class. Be honored. In case you are not familiar…

MotivationMonday: To Sit or Stand?

Happy #MotivationMonday everyone! In honor of us going back to work and slaving away at our desks all day long, I decided to tackle the new fad of the standing desk.

Well the challenge is on! To keep me on track I have downloaded the most popular fitness and nutrition app the mobile market has to offer, My Fitness Pal. It is super easy to use and my favorite feature so far is the bar code scanner.

How TV Workouts Saved Me

How TV Workouts Saved Me

If you haven’t guessed it by now, it takes a lot to get me motivated to workout in any capacity. I always struggled to get my a** up off the couch after a long day of work. Another problem was finding a workout that didn’t feel like punishment. I needed an incentive and one of my favorite things to do when I got home from work was to catch up on my latest Netflix obsession or TV Show. I am…
