I can't figure out what's more challenging: keeping up with workouts while traveling or keeping up with workouts following traveling. This week, I tried. I tried to be a good friend, daughter, sister, and teammate. I tried to be there for everyone who needed me even though I was exhausted. As a result, I was… Continue reading BBG Week 7: I Promise, I’m Trying
It seems that each week, BBG challenges me in a different way. Since I was traveling this week, it was challenging to find time to get my workouts in and access the healthy food that I’m used to eating.

I did not always work out 6 days a week. As a matter of fact, I used to not work out at all. Little did… Continue reading The People in the Gym Are Not Selfish
Time really does fly! This week, I completed my second week of BBG! While the movements differed from those in week 1, I expected to be challenged. I knew I wasn't going to be able to execute every move perfectly, and I had to accept that I am a work in progress. Below are my… Continue reading BBG Week 2: I Think I Can Do This
