Ola party peeps! What’s crackin? I have been a busy bee with training and getting things organized around the gym.



I’ve started a new strength program that Steve wrote for me and I am LOVING it! Here is what my week looks like:



Monday – Heavy Squat Progression & Full Body Accessory Work


Tuesday – High Volume Front Squats & Farmer’s Walk Medley. I’m on week 4 and my reps for squats are: 1 x 30, 1 x 20, 5 x 15, 1 x 30. I do 3 different variations of carries/walks for 4 rounds and then finish off with some med ball work.



Wednesday – Bench Press Progression & Full BodyAccessory Work



Thursday – Chinup and Push Up Progression & Full Body Accessory Work. Tomorrow I’ll be doing 7 sets of 6 chinups and 7 sets of 15 push ups. I add one set every week.


Friday – Deadlift Progression & High Volume Front Squats. Same reps for the front squats. Deadlifts are done with a strict reset at the bottom of the movement.


(250lbs x 3 x 3)



Saturday – Farmers Walks and Conditioning



My workouts aren’t very long, about 45 min – 60 minutes depending on the weight and volume. All of my lifts feel so good right now and I’m really happy with how my body is responding too – high volume is my friend.




So ya the last time we left off I was heading to Cincinnati for a strength conference. That was like….3 weeks ago haha. I’ve had a bunch of stuff I’ve been busy working on. I’m setting up a new system for our gym for bookings and payment so that’s taking some time to set up but I’ve also been working on a personal business project that is easily eating up most of my free time. I’ve been working on it slowly for a few months and now is the final (and busiest/hardest) stretch. I’ll be sure to fill you in when it’s ready to go. I’m pretty excited about it.



Anyways let’s get caught up using pictures, since I’m a visual person/the less typing the better 😉



Tyson got his first BarkBox and loved it. I love the concept behind it and it’ll save me from getting suckered into buying him random things when I get his food.




I actually got dressed up for a change. It was our friends Trevor and Amy’s wedding and it was beautiful.



Lotsa hair
Loved the back of the dress



I saved this little guy from getting stepped on/run over. Some of the guys from our gym found him in front of our door. He wasn’t injured and after pulling out my phone and checking this site I found out he was simply a fledgling, learning to fly. I didn’t want him to wander into the busy parking lot so I simply moved him to a nice safe area. A few birds came over to him as soon as I left, I’m assuming it was mom and dad since they were eyeballing me pretty good.




I got a Polar Loop for my birthday and this how many steps I average on a regular day. They say to shoot for about 10, 000 so I think I’m doing a pretty good job.



It is Wendnesday so let’s hop on Jenn’s WIAW party train and look at some food. These are eats from this past week – just dinner and some desserts because I eat the same lunch every day and breakfast is just coffee for me.





Baked burritos, can’t ever get enough


Cookies n’ Cream protein ice cream


This was SO good! Garlic and dill roasted chicken & potatoes and veggies


Fajita Salad


Zucchini with meatballs, sweet potato fries and salad


Homemade deep dish meat lovers pizza…nom nom



Ok well now I’m hungry. Check ya later!

    Holy crap, your food looks amazing!! Something tells me you and I would get along juuuust fine in real life 😉

    You are just gorgeous! I have major hair envy.

    How the heck do you walk that much in a day? I average about 15k, which I thought was a lot but you’re on another level! I guess you must be on your feet a lot at work?
