Vogue Parody: 73 Questions with Mikaela

I love Vogue’s 73 questions with celebrities and learning fun facts about them. One of my favorite parodies as well would have to be Liza Koshy’s parody. Random and ones I wouldn’t even think to ask sometimes! So I thought it would be fun to do a get to know me questionnaire as well! 73…

Pan Metron Ariston

Παν μέτρον άριστον (Pan Metron Ariston): Everything in measure/moderation – Kleovoulos o Lindios (6th century BC.) Harmony, balance…Words we strive to live by and attain to in our every day lives. We do our best to work towards that perfect middle ground with everything we do. That middle ground where we aren’t stressed or over…

Finding a Lifeline in Fitness

We all have those special things that we do that get us through the hard times. The special things that are our ways of self-care that combat the doubt and depression. Music, cooking, drawing, getting outdoors, writing… etc. For myself personally, and I know for a lot of people as well, my main way to…

Hobby Challenge!!

I’ve had several people reach out recently and ask about my hobbies outside of fitness. Fitness is definitely a lifestyle for me so I don’t really consider it a hobby, but to some people it is and that is completely fine! Whatever works for you and you see the results! 🙂 That’s what matters in…

I’m Back!!! AND Collagen Peptides

I’M BACK!!!!!!! I’m sorry I was MIA for a while on my blog posts. I was honestly struggling with coming up with ideas on what to write about and what I really wanted the theme of my blog to be. I’m leaning more towards the healthy lifestyle + fitness so not only can I give…

Motivational Tips and Hacks

Sometimes getting to the gym or even getting your day started can be rough and hard… I personally have days where I don’t want to move from my bed. My mom likes to describe those days as “The lazy song” by Bruno Mars for me. Somehow I manage to get myself up though and to…

Competing with Brittany

Competing is a huge aspect in the fitness world and most athletes share their journey over social sites so as to include people in their everyday life. I have never done a competition personally, but I have friends who have and I am always in awe of the process they go through. The different stages,…

Whey Protein

I have many people ask me at my job daily what the difference is with the types of whey protein we carry and what times of the day are the best for using them. So I thought I’d do a little get to know your protein type post. Whey comes from milk, which casein also…

What’s in your bottle?

Staying hydrated during your workouts is key for muscle growth, recovery as well as endurance and just making sure you don’t topple over during a lift. I like to play around with my supplements to see what benefits me or what my body responds to positively. One supplement I discovered a long time ago and…

Why I Don’t Run….

I’ve had many people ask me over the course of my fitness journey what I do for cardio. I’ve always been a bit hesitant to answer due to the fact I don’t really do a lot of cardio. I have a really fast metabolism and my body type is an ectomorph, long and thin with…

Legs for Days

Everyone has a love hate relationship with leg day… that is a given fact. No other day leaves me as sweaty and exhausted as leg day. But that is also the reason I love leg day so much. It breaks you, but not completely and then builds you up stronger than before. I like to…
