Ran out of pre-workout…now what?

Right foot forward, right foot back. Left foot forward, left foot back. Now shake, shake, shake. Open and sip.I always did that dance, accompanied with a joker grin, when taking my pre-workout. I couldn't help it--it made me excited even before my first sip.But now I'm out of my little tub of pump and I'm … Continue reading Ran out of pre-workout…now what?

The Lifting Diaries: Progress Pics are a Virtue

Dear Diary, Scrolling through Instagram every morning really came to use this morning. My alarm went off at 7:00 and without opening my eyes, I hit snooze once. After my 8 minutes were up, I hit snooze about 3 more times...woops.

The Lifting Diaries: The IBTC

Dear Diary, I got a new sports bra!  It's from Target, and it's reversible! I'm totally obsessed. It fits me just right and accentuates my small boobs--wait.

After that I did some other warm ups. Working out in the mornings weren't … Continue reading The Lifting Diaries: Yes, I’m Really Pumped

I Pre’d! (My Review of BPI Sports Pre-Training Powder)

In my last post, I mentioned that BodyBuilding.com sent me a few goodies with the protein that I ordered. One of those items was a pre-training powder by BPI Sports and after much debating, I decided to give it a try. The instructions say to take the powder 15-30 minutes before training. My original plan was … Continue reading I Pre’d! (My Review of BPI Sports Pre-Training Powder)

To Pre or Not to Pre: The Pre-Workout Crisis

Just Wednesday I received my package from BodyBuilding.com. What did I order? Protein of course! However, this packaging was a little different. This time BodyBuilding sent me a few goodies. But, out of all these things, one made my brow raise. No, it wasn't the men's hair products (though I am pretty tempted to try … Continue reading To Pre or Not to Pre: The Pre-Workout Crisis
