Half Way through Hip Hop Abs!

I can’t believe I am already half way through hip hop abs! My hubby and I have been working hard at it together! I guess I am actually 2.5 weeks through the 4 week program! I have really been pleased with my results thus far and look forward to sharing some before and after pictures with you guys in a few weeks!

It’s weird having done Shaun T’s newer programs first (Insanity and T25) to go back and do Hip Hop Abs. He looks SO much younger!  And the videos themselves …

Curious about Beachbody Coaching?

I just want people to be healthy and feel GOOD about themselves.
And that is what motivates me. As a beachbody coach, as a medical student (3/4 of the way to doctor baby!) and as a friend.
When I first became a beachbody coach, it was for the 25% discount I received on shakeology, something I still drink every single day. I was addicted, and being a coach allowed me to keep affording it.
But today, as I write this, I realize being a coach means so much more to me than that …

Breakfast – Is It Really?

Does Breakfast get you Motivated?
 
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
“Breakfast jump starts your metabolism”
“Breakfast helps you concentrate”
“Breakfast helps you maintain a healthy weight”
“Breakfast improves your mood”
Now I certainly would agree with all of the above. But is breakfast really the most important meal of the day? I’d like to challenge that statement. In fact, I assert there are two things in particular, fundamentally wrong with that statement.
First of all, what you eat for breakfast makes a world of difference. If you get up and pour yourself a big …

Polar Loop 1 week review

I got a polar loop for my birthday! Yay! And I finally put it on last Saturday and have been wearing it everyday!

For those of you that don’t know, the polar loop is a device that tracks fitness, and steps, and sleep. Similar to the fitbit that everyone seems to be talking about. My mother actually bought us one of each: the fitbit and the polar loop. My husband and I have birthdays only 1 week apart, so she bought us one of each – figuring I could use one, …

My New Current Living Space

My New Current Living Space
I’m doing my surgery rotation at a place kind of in the middle of nowhere, and they provide housing for us students. It’s a three bed two bath with two single beds in each room, I was expecting it to be tiny. But this place is HUGE! We even have a dishwasher, couch, TV, and just lots of space. I’m impressed!

It’s the kind of place my husband and I could totally have someday. I like it I’m totally gonna miss my husband during the …

A Knit Headband Project and Pattern

A Knit Headband Project (and Pattern)
I love to knit! And I can knit while studying! So last week while preparing for my exam on Friday, I whipped up a headband for myself! I really liked the way it turned out! And I loaded the pattern for free download on Ravelry.

It’s an easy knit, with basic cable technique. I used red heart super saver worsted weight yarn because I had some of it lying around. It’s extra thick, which is perfect for us cold weather folks! I tend to always wear …

I love baking bread. I consider myself a master of challah and I make a pretty mean cheese bread too. But for a dinner party I wanted to find a new bread recipe. So off to Pinterest I went. Searching for the perfect bread to go with dinner. And I am so glad I selected this one! The recipe was easy to follow and turned out so well!
