Gym Mistakes

Hello! Wow, it’s been a hot minute since I’ve actually sat down to write a post for the week it’s actually going live. In case you didn’t know, I had all the posts written and scheduled for the month of August. Life was a bit hectic with res life training, move-in, classes starting, and trying to figure out my routine for the next four months. But, I’m back, and to be honest, I’ve been itching to write this post all week.

Today we’re talking mistakes. Gym mistakes to be exact.

I’ve been on this fitness journey of mine for the past year and a half, and let me tell you, I’ve made so many mistakes and had so many ah-ha! moments that it’s not even funny at this point.

Supplements Explained

Supplements can take your training to the next level. Check out my current workout supplements!

Abigail, didn’t you already post something about all of the supplements you include in your fitness routine in the past few months? Yes, yes I did, and if I’m being honest, that post was awful. The quality was not something of which I was proud, and I’ve wanted to re-post it since the day I hit publish. So, we’re revisiting the topic, and I’m including some new products I’ve added into my routine. Enjoy!

This post has been one that I’ve wanted to do for a while, but I was very concerned that people wouldn’t want to read it. But is that really the point of this blog — writing things only for the sake of others might want to read? The answer to that is no. I’m here to be my true, authentic self and to talk about things that I love! And today that just happens to be the supplements that I’m taking at the moment.

I feel like when you tell people who aren’t in the fitness industry that you’re taking supplements, their immediate thought is “OMG you’re on steroids.” And honey, no. That is far far far from the truth. Supplements are intended to help fill nutritional gaps and take training to the next level. They’re not miracle substances that will get you a six-pack or make you ripped. But they will help you achieve your fitness goals.

9 Weeks In: Push, Pull, Legs Update

9 Weeks In: Push Pull Legs Update

Okay first off, I have no idea how it’s already been over nine weeks since I started my push/pull/legs routine. How does time fly that fast?? Secondly, I don’t think I’ve ever been more in love with a program in my life.

So after running this split for the past 9 weeks, I thought it was time to really go into detail about the pros and cons of said split and exactly how I choose and structure my workouts. This is going to be a long post so hold on and let’s get into it.

The Simplicity of Meal Prep

Eating healthy in college doesn't have to be hard. Meal prepping makes it easy, and here's how to do it. | college meal prep

I think there’s a huge misunderstanding when it comes to eating healthy in college. College is supposed to be the time of parties, pizza, alcohol, and junk food 24/7, right? At least that’s how all the movies portray “the best four years of our lives.”

There’s also a huge misunderstanding when it comes to eating healthy on a budget. It can’t possibly be done. “Unhealthy”, processed, pre-packaged foods are *apparently* way cheaper than fresh veggies, chicken, and rice. But, I’m pretty sure that isn’t true.

What’s In My Gym Bag

Gym Bag Essentials | Get the most out of your workout by having everything you need in your gym bag. Here's what I keep in my gym bag to have the best workouts!

Good morning! I think I start out all of my posts this way, but I’m absolutely stoked for today’s post. It’s been on my list of posts to write for a good long while, but I haven’t felt exactly ready to share what’s in my gym bag. Now, my bag is complete, and I’ve figured out exactly what I need to have amazing workouts and avoid that “oh shoot how did I forget that” moment.

If you are a gym goer and a have a gym bag, I think you understand what I mean by that one. It takes awhile to narrow down what you like and don’t like to keep in your bag. From equipment to food, let’s dive right in to what I’m lugging 20 minutes campus on a daily basis that make my workouts so much better.

Quick & Easy Daily Makeup

Quick & easy daily makeup perfect for college students, post-gym routines, or if you're in a rush!

Hey y’all! Okay so I went back and forth for what seemed like hours about what to call this post. It could be makeup products for post-workout, it could be everyday makeup products for a busy college student, or it could be makeup products for when you don’t feel like wearing a ton of makeup. But I’m just settling on quick and easy daily makeup because it encompasses all of the options and more.

This routine takes me at most 10 minutes but usually it’s around a solid 5 minutes. It requires only four products minimum (blush and bronzer not included) which means it can be taken with you anywhere! Hence the reason I wanted to make this a post-workout makeup post.
