Printable Workouts? How Convenient!

So, I know I haven’t written on here lately, but it’s because I’ve really been lacking in the creativity and motivation department. My workouts have felt like they’re missing something lately, and I think I’ve found just the solution…find new workouts. So I went exploring via the World Wide Web and came across a few … Continue reading

Drink Protein Shakes

With a busy schedule, it’s not always easy to plan meals and cook all the time. This can make it difficult to practice healthy eating habits. If you’re incorporating workouts into your schedule, it’s even more important to feed your muscles well for recovery to build them back up and create even stronger muscles than … Continue reading

How Bad do you Want it?

Okay so I know for myself, I’ve kind of been lacking in the motivation department lately because of my school workload increasing by the day. It’s becoming way too easy to make excuses for not getting a work out in or for eating unhealthy food because I have a lot to do or whatever. When … Continue reading

As we get further and further into the semester, the school workload is getting busier. You may not always have time to make it to the gym. And it’s way easy to use homework or a ton of other things as an excuse not to go. If you have a plan though, it’s a lot … Continue reading

Staying Active

With winter on its way here in Alaska soon, it’s made me realize how important it is to embrace what’s left of the summer, well now fall, and the outdoors without all the freezing temps and snow. I’ve made it a point to get outside more for my daily runs and to walk the dogs … Continue reading

An Intro to Begin


Before I begin posting from a journalist’s stand point, I wanted to tell you a bit about myself. I started this blog for one of my courses, New Media Toolkit, and I could choose whatever topic I wanted to write about for it. Well that left endless options, and I pondered all the possibilities for a few days. I finally decided to focus on health and fitness for a busy lifestyle because it is completely applicable to myself. I am a soldier in the U.S. Army part-time, News station intern part time, and full-time student for the rest of the time.

This all makes for some pretty busy days, and not a lot of time for health and fitness. But I’m really learning how to time manage and prioritize the important things in life.

I also just got engaged to the love of my life Stephen, so that’s been really exciting. We have two malemute/husky dogs, Echo and Storm and they keep us very active and on our toes. The newest addition to our family is a small 8-week-old grey kitten named Ava. She’s our little baby.

My fiancĂ© is a Chinook pilot and a certified personal trainer in his spare time, so I’m constantly learning new workouts and health tips from him. We work out together often and really push each other to constantly be improving.

We get many of our daily workouts from
