Don't Forget Your Obliques

Posted by Kristen Baureis on 2/24/2016 to Exercise

Since Heather and I are doing all these squats, my legs and glutes are getting firmer and more toned. My arms tone fairly easily; I’ve never had a problem with them. My core on the other hand, even though I switch up my ab workouts frequently, is stubborn when it comes to obtaining muscle.

I came across this fitness post this morning that demonstrated different oblique exercises. I am always looking for new work outs, and since I’ve hit a plateau, it’s important that I change up my routine.

Vegan Challenge: Complete

Posted by Kristen Baureis on 2/1/2016 to Diet and Nutrition

Yesterday was my last day of being vegan for a month. I can’t believe it’s been that long, and it feels weird that I am technically allowed to eat whatever I want. 

I have eaten a lot of fruit, pasta, beans, chickpeas, (I could have eaten more vegetables but I would have about 3 servings of vegetables a day on average) and quinoa. SO.MUCH.QUINOA!
