I've got some pretty exciting things coming up though, so I'm just trying to keep my focus on that and my nose to the grind.  Let's get to some food, shall we? :) Pre-Workout Breakfast brown rice cakes - peanut butter - banana - cuties Since Tuesdays are my typical leg days, I always eat a bit more bulk [ie. carbs] for my pre-workout breakfast. No one likes a rumbly belly and I ... Continue Reading...

Workout Motivation PIN

Tips & tricks on how to stay motivated on your fitness or workout plan! Don't let a lack of workout motivation keep you from becoming a beast in the gym. "70% of people that start a fitness plan will quit." Does that statistic baffle anyone else? As someone who has been an athlete since the age of 8, workout motivation has never really been a struggle for me.
