If your following me on Instagram, then you know I just got back from a week long cruise. We went on the Carnival Conquest. Which if I’m being on honest, probably needs to retire or be renovated.

Eating Before & After a Workout....Is it ok?

Eating your pre- workout meal (before) and post-workout (after) is more than ok. It is necessary! Only under certain circumstances would it be ok to ditch the pre-workout but that's mainly a medical reason. This is actually a rookie mistake that many of us tend to do.

Ways to Prevent Injury

If you’ve been following me on Instagram then you will know that I injured my lower back about 4 weeks ago.

This time around, I’ve going to the physical therapist and I seem to have a pinch in  my piriformis muscle. It just doesn’t seem to heal and I am starting to think there is more to this injury than I thought. Hopefully, by the time this post goes out I will know my answers and can share with you all.
