How to Pick a Diet and Why I Won’t Follow One

Not long after I started this blog, I decided to try the SlimFast 14 day challenge. The jist of this challenge is that for 2 meals a day you have SlimFast, one regular meal and 3 snacks. I wrote about what I ate and what my results were. Still, to this day, those posts are… Continue reading How to Pick a Diet and Why I Won’t Follow One

4 Ways to Successfully Avoid Junk Food

A new year means new resolutions, a common one being to eat healthier. You've probably seen me say it a million times on here: I love working out, but I also really love food. Give me a bag of gummy candy or some creamy milk chocolate and I am a happy girl. While I totally support anyone eating… Continue reading 4 Ways to Successfully Avoid Junk Food

Staying Fit & Healthy During Fall

I hate to be the one to say it, but summer is ending. How crazy is that? Does anyone else feel like we only just finished spring? It's hard to believe that we are only days away from the season being over. Summer always feels like an easy month to stay active. The days are… Continue reading Staying Fit & Healthy During Fall

My Fitness Lifestyle & Social Media

I recently read an article stating that those who post their fitness routine on Facebook have psychological problems. A study showed that individuals who post when they work out tend to be narcissists and that they are primarily just trying to brag about how much time they invest in their looks and because they need attention and validation.… Continue reading My Fitness Lifestyle & Social Media

Getting Fit & Having Fun

It's no secret that I love working out. I haven't always been this way; once upon a time, I would avoid physical activity at all costs. Gym class was my least favourite, and while I enjoyed walking or biking, I definitely wasn't doing it to get fit. So, what changed? I realized that working out… Continue reading Getting Fit & Having Fun

First Thoughts on Orangetheory Fitness

I'm in all sorts of pain as I sit here writing this. Don't worry, it's the good kind of pain. The kind of pain you get when you know you've had a successful workout and can feel yourself getting more fit. The best kind of pain there is. This pain I'm referring too has been… Continue reading First Thoughts on Orangetheory Fitness

Orange is the New Workout

I often end up feeling like I'm at a stalemate with my weight loss and fitness regime. I've said this before in my monthly fitness updates and lately, I've been trying different types of fitness to mix it up a bit. The only issue with that is that classes happen once a week, which still… Continue reading Orange is the New Workout

Aerial Hammock

You might have noticed that I didn't post a fitness update after July. Quite frankly, I didn't have anything to say. DietBet ended and I was at a standstill. Life was going on as normal, I was going to the gym, I was eating my regular meals, but nothing was changing. It probably would have… Continue reading Aerial Hammock
