1. Off to the Races

    Hey there blog-world friends… There is something about a new year that I love. I think it might be that idea of having a clean slate and a fresh start. Though I don’t exactly make new year's resolutions, I do try to look at what I accomplished last year, what I hope to accomplish this year and attempt make a few changes. I couldn’t help but be inspired by Anthony’s last ‘ask the trainer…Read More

  2. Holiday Blues

    Oh hey blog friends… It’s  Kristy… I’m back! I’ve been thinking alot about what I should focus on for this post. I thought I could talk progress, which I’ve has some of. I’m down a few lb’s and have been killing it in classes, but it just didn’t feel right. I bounced back and forth on a number of other ideas, but I kept coming back to the topic of the holidays. Why? Because I st…Read More

  3. New Goals

    There are certain times in your life, especially for women, that increase your likelihood of weight gain. Women gain the most weight in their 20-’s and 30’s overall. Additionally, there are life events that exacerbate this. Obviously, pregnancy is one of those times (no, I’m not prego!) But did you know that women also tend to gain weight after their wedding? On average, it’s about five pl…Read More

  4. Was it worth it?

    For the last 5 months, you’ve read about my trials and tribulation of trying to get wedding-dress-ready for my big day. You’ve read about my ups and downs, my weeks of successful weight loss, followed by plateaus, injuries and weight gain. You’ve read about my endless hours at the gym and my struggles of being a foodie while trying to keep a diet in check. I swore on multiple occasions that …Read More

  5. 2 Days to go…

    I am officially 2 days away from my wedding. Shit is super real now. My dress alterations are complete, wedding bands are bought, family members are coming into town and my house is exploding with a mix of wedding day supplies and wedding presents. We even got our first card addressed to Mr. and Mrs. yesterday… it’s all a little surreal, but it’s exciting. Being this close to the wedding day…Read More

  6. Injuries Happen

    ` I don’t deal with injuries well. I quite frankly never have. I’ve never liked going to the doctor, taking unnecessary medications or having to slow down. The other side of this is the fact that I have been plagued with back problems my whole life. At 13 I had to quit gymnastics due to back pain... Not that I was any good at it, but I was devastated. I deal with injuries by ignoring or avoidi…Read More

  7. Momentum vs. Motivation

    June was a crazy month for me. I left my job of 3 years where I worked from home to go to a steady 9-5 corporate gig here in Denver. I traveled back to Boston for my bridal shower and bachelorette party which turned into a hectic but fun 6 days away. And truly the crunch of wedding planning has hit as well. I swear any minute Matt and I have together we are making some kind of decision about the w…Read More

  8. Progress Report: Mosquito Bites to A Cups

    A few weeks ago I was in Sara’s Friday morning  weightlifting class with just one other Titanium Fitness Client, Fran. Though I love big classes, I also love it when classes are small and I can connect with just one other person. Sara was running late, so Fran took the lead and starting getting us warmed up. Though I can’t quite remember how we got on the topic, we started discussing gym prog…Read More
