Friday Fitness

Happy Friday everyone! I’m in definite need of some extra caffeine this morning as a little someone decided to wake up FOUR times last night! He’s never done that before and I’m still scratching my head trying to figure out why. He didn’t even break out of his swaddle as he’s been doing lately. I’ll… Read More

At Home Workouts

Before baby, I would run 3-5 days a week and do CrossFit 3 times a week (yes, I would sometimes double up). In order to keep myself sane and fit, I had to learn to get creative in sneaking in workouts throughout the day with my now 3 month old.     What I learned works… Read More

First Post-natal WOD

It’s been 2 weeks + 1 day since I gave birth to my little Frankie (have you seen all his cute pictures on my Instagram?!? @juliafastinista) and this mama is ready to start getting back in shape! Although I have done little things here and there before yesterday, like push-ups off my couch, leg extensions… Read More

Christmas Love

This year I made pizzelles to add a little bit of Italian flair to the table. We eat dinner around 10,… Read More

Today we hosted my husband’s sister and her family for an early Christmas celebration since we won’t see them on actual Christmas. I’m sure many of you also either hosted or attended Holiday parties… I just love this time of year! I do miss my family in South America though; that’s the bittersweet part. It… Read More

I definitely prefer shopping online in the comfort of my home, rather than driving to… Read More

33 Weeks and counting 

It’s been a great week, very busy with work and training the person who will be filling in for me at the office, as well as getting some last minute details taken care of.  Even though I’m a CrossFit coach (on the side) and love inspiring and helping people reach and maintain their fitness goals,… Read More

30 Weeks

Happy Sunday! This little big bump is now 30 weeks-yay! It’s been a long week of working, learning and not a lot of working out- but that’s ok! My husband and I took a CPR class earlier in the week and yesterday we went to an all-day childbirth class at the hospital where I’ll be… Read More
