Workout Updates: Joining The Gym? + lululemon Finds


I have some workout updates for today! Last Week’s Workouts Last week was the second (or third?) week in a row that I didn’t write my daily workouts down to share them in detail on the blog. It definitely feels weird but nice at the same time! Sometimes we just need a change to routine, […]

Back To The Treadmill!! (weekly workout recap)


I made my return to the gym in my community and to the treadmill for the first time since the start of the pandemic! While the gym reopened earlier this year, I had yet to go because of the mask mandate. At some point, the mask mandate was dropped so I knew it was only […]

Weekly Workout Recap (12/9/19 – 12/15/19)

I didn’t run much this week (only once) but I had my reasons: On the days I was in the gym, I did not feel like running. Friday, when I could have run, I preferred to walk. Over the weekend, I had a Bat Mitzvah to attend both Saturday and Sunday, with a funeral service […]

Winter Workout Mode (weekly workout recap)


Well, I’m fully in my winter workout mode and quite honestly, it was a great week. This is what winter workout mode means for me: Longer Pure Barre workouts. I knew very well that once winter weather hit, I would naturally return to the longer Pure Barre workouts. The best part is that I had […]

Running Story + Workouts From The Week

I held off sharing my workouts until today because I ran yesterday instead of Saturday. My intention was to run on the treadmill Saturday morning but I woke up completely not in the mood and I certainly wasn’t running outside because it was too cold for me.  Sunday’s forecast was sunny and above freezing < […]

PMS, Fewer Miles + More Pure Barre

  My month of training with Laura ended last weekend. With my brain acting completely noncommittal to signing up for a fall half marathon, right now I am just winging my workouts until I can maybe make a decision over here. Until then, I am just going by feel with my mileage, workouts and Pure […]

Mixing Up My Workouts (Happy Mother’s Day!)

Happy Mother’s Day! We are off for our special Mother’s Day breakfast tradition this morning but I wanted to stop in with my workouts from the week first. This was a good week in workouts although you will notice I ran a little less than normal. While I did have my period early on this week (which is why […]

Quality Over Quantity & Cardio Pure Barre


  A few things to note before getting to my workouts from the week: Lower Mileage. Overall my mileage was lower than normal BUT I can’t say I noticed. I definitely wouldn’t call this an “easy” workout week, I would just call it a week of doing other things on the days that I would normally […]

Running & Workout Recap (1.30.17- 2.5.17)

  Oh, hi. Happy Sunday. I mean, Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Not that I really like football or anything. I am more of a hockey girl. Anyway. Overall I would say that running was SO MUCH BETTER this week as compared to last week’s workouts. No more random soreness and thankfully, my hip which was slightly bothering me […]

3 things & running/workout recap

  3 things before getting to my running and workout recap: 1) This week was my time of the month week which I swear I am always writing about but I guess in reality it’s just what I write about every 28 days. The cramps and hormones definitely affect my running and ability to feel […]

  Shortly after I published my post on Friday, my site went down. FOR HOURS. Like, a good nine hours, maybe longer. Why? I don’t even know. I don’t understand what the tech people tell me, all I do know is that I am in the process of switching web hosts so please bear with me […]
