How to Be a Morning Exerciser

I use to workout in the evenings after work when I was single and living in the city. Then with a new job I had to make a change, because it would have been easier to exercise in the morning and get to work by 8:30am than it would have been to leave work consistently at 5:00 or 5:30pm everyday to get to the gym.

If you’re like us, you’ve likely spent a small fortune on workout gear over the years maybe more if you are shelling out for bodybuilding clothes for your workout.

Why I’m Doing the Whole30 Program + Week 1 Meal Plan

Please note that I am not a nutritionist. I am simply sharing my experience with this program. Consult your doctor before starting any program. This is not a sponsored post. 

By now, many of you have probably heard of, and even tried, the Whole30 Program.

Now that we’re living within walking distance of Whole Foods, the time was right.

My Marathon Recap

I can’t believe it’s already been two and a half weeks since the NYC marathon. It’s still somewhat surreal that it’s over. This was my second marathon, and I’ve admitted a few times now that I was pretty nervous about it. Since I’m a more experienced runner than when I ran my first marathon four years ago, I really wanted to do better this time around.

Well, I beat my time from before, so yay!
