Strong to the Finish Challenge – Week 12

Well, I guess my self-care routine yesterday worked, because today I am back to my usual awesomeness! I got a really solid sleep last night and I woke up feeling bright and light. I had a feeling it would be a better morning for photos, and thankfully it was! It’s been 12 weeks of intense […]

Strong to the Finish Challenge – Week 11

Hey hi hello there! I came to the realization today that this challenge is so appropriately named. It really is about being strong to the end, and I am nearing it. Week 11 was the hardest, in part because my diet has become increasingly difficult, and in part because I know only a tougher road […]

Strong to the Finish Challenge – Week 9

This post is going to take me forever to write – I am officially brain dead after the crazy leg workout I just had! Does that ever happen to any of you? You work out so hard you exhaust all of your brain capacity? Quite a funny thing really! Perhaps I’m just exhausted in general. […]

Strong to the Finish Challenge – Week 8

Well, being that I had the realization last week that I actually have 4 more weeks to go on this challenge, I didn’t end up having the “week 8” that I thought I would! I didn’t feel the pressure I anticipated. Rather, this week was one of deep introspection. I keep waiting for this challenge […]

Strong to the Finish Challenge – Week 5

Helloooooo and here we are at the end of week 5! I am a little late with this post – what can I say – life happens. I typically will snap a picture the day of my update post, but you’ll have to settle for this bikini-clad one from a few days back, because I […]

Strong to the Finish Challenge – Week 3

I was wondering when this challenge would really start to feel like a challenge, and my question was answered this week. The week started off as it usually would, me embracing the low-carb diet, high-intensity workout life. Then on Saturday, it hit me. Like a ton of bricks. I was tired, cranky, and hella irritable.

Strong to the Finish Challenge – Week 2 

I can’t believe it is still so early on in this challenge, not because I feel like it has been dragging on for eons, but because I am making progress I am so genuinely proud of. Since my diet has changed to almost 100% clean eating, I have noticed a really positive change in my […]
