Nutrition Announcement!

Hi guys! I’m excited to announce that I am officially certified in Fitness Nutrition through NASM! Back in September, I obtained an additional certificate (Fitness Nutrition Specialist) to be able to expand my scope of practice to include a nutritional component.

Long story short but I waited a few weeks to make the announcement just since I’ve been transitioning to a new job and wanted to wait before I took on any nutrition clients. Now I’m happy to say that I decided to run a sale on all nutrition plans! I’m calling it “Nutrition November” and am offering $10 off a monthly macro plan for anyone who signs up for the month of November. It’s usually $30 but instead it’ll be $20 for November ๐Ÿ™‚

If you are interested in signing up with me, please first make sure you have a PayPal email address (for billing) and then go ahead and shoot me an email!

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting

As it’s finally fall I decided to bring back an old favorite from my old website: pumpkin cinnamon rolls! The inspiration came from Two Peas & Their Podย when I saw something about pumpkin butter from Trader Joe’s, and for the base of the cinnamon roll dough I used Pioneer Woman’s recipe. I used almond milk instead of whole milk since I don’t even remember the last time we had regular milk in the house but it worked just as well! I also added in cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice to the dough before letting it rise.

Mix of Plyo and Strength Leg Workout

Hey guys! I have another workout for you that has been approved by both myself and Amanda. As I’ve mentioned before, she’s a bit of a workout mooch haha so when I come up with a workout I usually send it to her and she gives me her feedback on what she thinks about it. It actually does help to have someone else try out a workout and tell me their experience of it. Which is why I always ask for you guys to let me know what you think if you try one out ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, I’ve been so excited lately because most workouts are on the table in terms of not having to worry about my lower back/hip/sciatica problems. I still have not squatted or deadlifted, though, or any heavier lower body lifting for that matter because I want to take it extremely easy. But I tried out a lighter leg workout at home and I’m happy to say it was a success!

Hill Sprints Workout

It’s been awhile since I posted but my week has been go-go-go! I finally caught a break and was home for more than five minutes this evening so I wanted to get a quick post up. I’ve started incorporating hill sprints again in my workout schedule because yay for no sciatic pain! My back is adapting phenomenally to all the exercises I am slowly adding back in and I’ve had zero pain which is a huge blessing.

Sprints are something I do weekly since they help my running a ton and I particularly enjoy doing hill sprints because it helps me to really activate and engage my posterior chain while running. I’ll talk more about the specific mechanics of sprinting in another post because for now I just want to go over my usual sprinting routine.
