First Steps

Hi Friends!

Welcome to my blog! My name is Vicki and I am a 28 year old elementary school teacher, a wife, a traveler, and an aspiring photographer. I developed a love for fitness after discovering Crossfit, of which I was a member of for 3 years. My husband and I now workout together in our garage, where we have built a mini Crossfit gym. I created this blog as a motivational tool for myself to get back to my healthy eating and workout habits after falling short during Thanksgiving break. I know that I can’t be the only one that this happened to, so hopefully you will find some sort of inspiration in my blog as well!

Over Thanksgiving, my husband and I were lucky enough to travel to the East Coast to visit my extended family and play tourists for a week. When we go on vacation, we tend to eat and drink like it doesn’t matter, even though we are no where near close to keeping up with our normal workout routine. We walked a few miles every day during our adventures, which was a decent start.

My plan for this blog is to post travel workout & eating tips whenever my husband and I are out of town, provide you with new recipes I have found or created, document the workouts we complete in our garage, and provide some inspiration to people who think that because they work full time, they can’t make time to workout. I too have to MAKE time to workout and to prepare healthy meals. I choose to make health a priority. Making a healthy life style a priority is the best way to see progress and will allow you to reap the benefits of your hard work!

I hope that you are able to find motivation alongside me, whether you have never worked out a day in your life or are trying to hop back into your routine like me. Enjoy!

<3 Vicki Brands
