Week 2: Peloton

I GOT AN APPLAUSE FROM BEN ALLDIS FOR MY INSTAGRAM STORY!!! I’m not gonna say that I fan girled, but I totally sent pics of this to my kids because hellllooooo! My Workouts I’ve had my bike for two weeks now and, for the most part, I’ve been sticking to […]

Week 1: Peloton

  I’ve had my Peloton Bike+ for a week now and I honestly believe I’ve found something I can stick with. In fact, I look forward to the end of the work day, so I can come home, feed and walk the dogs, then get on my bike. It’s intense. […]

Getting Fit: My Peloton Arrives Tomorrow

My Peloton is scheduled to arrive tomorrow and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve been counting down since I placed my order. And the folks at Peloton have made it so easy. Every couple of days, they send an email with an update about my bike along with other important […]

Getting Fit: Waiting for My Peloton to Arrive

After stalking the website for a year, reading reviews, watching videos, and trying to justify the price, I finally made the decision to buy a Peloton. I ordered the Bike+ Essentials, which comes with bike shoes, 3 lb bike weights, and reversible workout mat. I chose this option because I […]

Running, Running…

I keep hearing that refrain from the Black Eyed Peas every time I get ready to run. Is there a song that gets you pumped for a run? I think it’s time for me to revamp my playlist, but I digress. A little over 6 years ago, I was a […]

Fitbit Last Week of July Stats {living outside the stacks} #operationsnapback

Baby Steps

10,000 baby steps per day. That’s what I’m taking. Sometimes more, but most of the time I’m just at 10,000 steps. I know I need to do more. Sometimes I think about the workouts I used to do when I was in the Army {jumping jacks, push ups, sit ups, […]

11 July #operationsnapback {living outside the stacks}

Back At It. Again.

Doesn’t it feel like I’m writing one of these posts every 6 months? Like when am I gonna hit my goal and write my celebratory post? I don’t know. But I do know that I’m not going to give up until I reach my goal. I keep forgetting that. I’ll […]

1000 Mile Challenge Update

First of all, I’d like to say that the National 1000 Mile Challenge has raised enough money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation Northeastern California and Northern Nevada to grant the wishes of two children with life threatening medical conditions! That is crazy good. And, man, I’m just excited to have been able to […]

Run 1000 Mile Challenge {Living Outside the Stacks} #TeamLOTSRuns

Run: 1000 Mile Challenge

Every year, I like to do one thing that scares challenges me. And, for the past few years, it seems that those challenges have involved running {read about my first race here and joining Run for God here}. So, it seems only right that this year, the challenge involves yet […]

#SweatPink Fitness Friday Wrap~Up

Bible Verse 1 Corinthians 9:26 Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like the boxer beating the air. Everything in life requires some sort of planning. Athletes don’t just get out there and play ball or run a race, they practice, they learn skills […]
