Taking a Break

Hey friends,

I haven’t been blogging lately, I know. I needed to take some time to start thinking about new topics, focus on my nutrition school studies, and enjoy life away from constantly taking pictures. I think I just really burnt out on the social media and blogging world. But I’ll be back, hopefully with some nice topics, reviews, or giveaways. So don’t think I’ve given up! Just needed a little time away 🙂

Love you all!

Question of the day:

– Do you ever have to take a long break from the blogging and social media world?
– How’s August going for ya?

Health Coaching and New Workout

Hey guys! A couple days ago, I was writing up a HIIT workout that really worked on the heart rate and muscles and wanted to put it on the blog. So here we go! One of my top workouts and its amazing! Definitely give it a try and tell me what you think!

But moving on, I wanted to talk about Health Coaching.

I decided two years ago what I wanted to do with my life. It wasn’t making millions of dollars or working for a huge company. I wanted to be a health coach. People look at me funny every time when I tell them that. Why? Because there used to not be health coaches. It wasn’t a very popular career until The Institute for Integrative Nutrition made it so. And I thank Joshua, the founder, and all the teachers for making it possible for me to live my dream.

Health coaching, what is it? Simply put, a HC is a guide that helps you achieve your health, fitness, nutrition, and life goals. It takes time, but when you’ve got someone that has your back, you meet those goals then and now instead of 5 years later after you failed and kept giving up. With a health coach, they’re always there for you. Listening, talking, giving advice, even grocery shopping with you. Its pretty darn amazing and I do want to say, that 3 years ago, I wish I had had a health coach. I believe in health coaches. They are amazing and the work I’ve seen them do to help people live better lives, is just amazing.

I’m just so pumped to tell you that I’m health coaching as we speak! The great thing about it, is that I can coach you online, in person, over the phone, whatever suits you best. If you’re ever interested or know someone who could benefit, please let me know!

Thanks for reading! I hope all of you have just a completely fantastic day!

HIIT It! (Love to Sweat?)

Happy Thursday! I seriously thought it was Thursday yesterday and I was so ready for Friday…big letdown!

So…yesterday, I had an amazing workout. It was one of those workouts that make you feel like a total beast after

How I feel walking out of the gym

First, I ran 4 miles in the hot sun with pretty good mile splits and total average pace

I was looking through some of my workouts on my Workout page on the blog, and came across my favorite HIIT workout that I used to do a LOT this time last year.

HIIT!

I completed 4 rounds and felt so in shape, it was awesome! I thought I would have to quit after 2 rounds from being so worn out but I was completely the opposite. Definitely could have gone 2 more rounds if I had more time.

After 2 rounds, the tuck jumps were really hurting the balls of my feet, so I switched over to 20 mountain climbers (1 rep = when right leg comes to chest)

4-9..4-9

I also did some core work just going through a lot of my favorite moves for about 10 minutes.

I challenge anyone, who is capable, to do at least 2 rounds of the workout above! You must do each exercise back to back! No stopping till the full round is over.

You can definitely do it!
