I’ve missed the last couple “training posts” and there’s a couple reasons behind that. The main one is that I’ve been thinking hard about exactly HOW I want to incorporate fitness tips and encouragement into the blog. In the past I’ve focused on the food and on providing people great recipes and (hopefully) drool worthy pictures during a quick visit to this site (the average visit time is about 1 minute and 20 seconds I believe! y’all are speedy!). And while I still want to focus on the food, because that’s where my heart is, I want this to become a place where I’m more engaged with YOU the readers and we can form a relationship. Which brings me to my big news–I’m now a health and fitness coach with Beachbody!
Yeah that’s me randomly flexing in the kitchen. This is ME we’re talking about…where else would you expect me to flex?? Beachbody is an awesome company that provides a lot of awesome products (ever heard of P90X or Shakeology?) and I’m SO excited to be working with them. Not much on this blog is going to change, the company has nothing to do with this site and is not sponsoring any of my content. The only difference you might notice is me being happier and getting stronger and healthier! And every once in a while I’ll post a referral link when I’m mentioning the things I love or information about challenge groups that I’m running on Facebook to give you all the opportunity to join them if you’d like. I just wrapped up a free 7-Day Clean Eating Challenge (make sure you follow me on Facebook to learn about ALL the challenges I run in the future) and I can’t even tell you how much fun I had! It felt amazing to encourage and motivate other women to strive for their best. Plus it helped me to clean up my diet too!
Now I’m filling up the last couple spots in my next group, which is a full-on 3 week fitness and healthy eating challenge group. If you are looking to really get a jumpstart and see some awesome results, please comment below or email me to let me know! Not only do you get the great workouts, but this group includes a full meal plan that I have developed myself that has recipes which have never been published here on the blog. There’s still a day left to sign up and I’d love to have you and get to know you!
And then of course I’m still training for the half marathon! This is the schedule I made for the upcoming month.
I’ll be honest with you, the extremely gross and cold weather here in the past few weeks has made me skip several runs in favor of doing workouts from the comfort of my apartment. BUT with a new month I’ve got FRESH motivation and I’m ready to kill it with my training in March! Today was a cross train day and I did a Turbo Fire workout, which was so high energy and fun! And then I had a vegan chocolate Shakeology after my workout for recovery–delicious!
See you tomorrow with a cooking video!
