Be-You-Tifully Fit: HR Train

Recently I finished reading both Keto Clarity and Primal Endurance.  I am not sure why I have decided to finally take the direction of a low carbohydrate lifestyle.  Honestly I love carbs…lot.  They are lyfe but they don’t love me like I love them.  Through my curiosity I read both of these books and fell […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: What doesn’t serve you

It’s been a year since I decided to seriously start weight lifting.  After training for the Marine Corps Marathon & the Old Glory 50K, I was absolutely burnt out and defeated.  I had run a total of 2,400 miles last year.  My body did not mind the mileage but with the other pressures of life […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: Mind games

So I am at the gym and I am finally feeling a little more comfortable lifting in front of other people until this woman next to me was staring at me.  I was doing my Stronglifts 5×5 routine doing 65 lb overhead presses.  At first I didn’t think much of it but after the 5 sets, […]

Be-You-tifully Fit: Even he needs a little help

This past week the hubby and I were sitting down talking about what we have going on for the fall/winter time.  The kids’ activities’ schedules have already begun to come in and my training plan is already chosen.  He has been holding back doing things he has wanted due to work and timing.  I could […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: Results are in!

I finished the She Sweats Run Builder program! It was 12 weeks of lifting, HIIT and different running workouts. For me, this was the first actual weight lifting program I have fully completed. I really enjoyed it! The mix up of things to do each day and differences in segments was refreshing. After being in […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: Memorial Day

The hubby & I challenged ourselves this morning with the Murph WOD to honor the fallen.  No vests or body armor and modifications for the pull-ups & push-ups BUT I completed it.  Honestly, it scared me looking at the upper body needed for this.  I can and have done 300 squats in a day before. […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: Scale is the same.

Over the course of the last year, I have remained in the same clothes more or less.  The scale has gotten to a point of minimal fluctuation.  From all outside looks to the matter, it looks like I have plateaued but that is only from the once over. Deeper insight… Running 50+ mile weeks (picture […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: Stroulders.

Stroulders noun 1.the upper joint of the human arm and the part of the body between this and the neck made more defined by pushing a stroller for many miles up and down hills. …or so my husband and I came up with after my last slurring/brain fog moment on my way home from the […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: Do not be mistaken

It came to mind the other day while preparing my clothes for RnR Raleigh half marathon…  my anxious nature is not what some may believe it is.  It is because of respect.  I am not a natural born runner.  I do not have amazing form.  By no means, do I know all there is to […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: New Dawn. New Plan.

I am sure that you have noticed that I like plans.  I like plans that are shorter and can be fit into life easily.  Over the last year, I have worked harder on implementing a lot of strength in my fitness.  I love running but honestly it just is not providing me with everything I […]
