Vacation + Workouts

Before heading to the beach, since there is no gym, I go for a run – and then add some body weight exercises to do after. So here’s what I did:

Colden Mountain – Adirondack Mountains

We got to the Adirondack Lodge where the trail head starts at 8am, the sun was beaming and the heat was starting to rise – perfect day for a hike. It’s about a 2.5 mile hike, relatively flat, to the Marcy Dam – the first milestone in your journey. Once you leave the dam, the trail takes another mile until you reach the pivotal point in your hike – left or right. For Colden, there is a loop that you can take …

Weekly Work Outs 6/20 – 6/25

Anyways, next month is finally our yearly beach vacation, and I can’t wait! But it also means I will be getting really strict with food and workouts for the next couple weeks. So after this weekend, I’m battening down the hatches and getting to work. Got to make sure I’m beach ready!

Making the switch to paleo meant no … Continue reading Paleo Strawberry Daiquiri

Weekly Workouts 5/16-5/21
