Training When You Don’t Feel Like Training

Two days in a row? What is this malarky? Basically sorcery, as far as I’m concerned.

Today, I want to get into the topic of training and going to the gym when you don’t feel like it. I consider myself incredibly lucky, as I don’t typically lack the motivation to workout. It is something I genuinely not only enjoy, but look forward to doing; however, I know that this is not the case for a lot of people.

16.1 – Glutes, Glutes & More Glutes

It’s March! Holy crap! What happened?  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The Flu, New Programming & The Open

Hot damn, it’s been a minute. I think I should add regular blog posts to my list of goals to accomplish for the New Year!

I’ve been dealing with a terrible flu since last Monday (January 4th) that sidelined me from life for about a week. I’m not sure why I’ve been getting sick so much this year, but it’s starting to tick me off. I came down with a slight cold on Christmas, but it was clearing up until last week when I started to feel pretty crappy Monday evening. Tuesday morning I had a fever, and Wednesday morning I went to urgent care with a fever of 102.5°. They gave me a mask to wear (because I was so disgusting), and my boyfriend pointed out my uncanny resemblance to Sub Zero from Mortal Kombat.

End of Summer & Weekend Recap

And just like that, another weekend draws to a close. Actually, scratch that…just like that, another month comes to a close – today is the last day of August. Damn, I guess that means summer is officially coming to a close. That escalated quickly from bummer to big bummer to huge bummer…sorry, Internet for being a Debbie Downer. But, if this weekend had to be the last “official” weekend of summer, it wasn’t a bad one to end on. Continue reading
