Trying New Things

I am all about trying new things especially when it comes to workouts, so yesterday morning I headed to Samya's new boxing gym! This woman has accomplished so much in the past year it blows my mind. She is so strong, creative, and just plain awesome-- she really makes you want to be a better person, and who doesn't want to be around someone like that. 

Back to the workout… I've never been to a boxing gym before yet alone put on gloves, but as soon as I walked in I did a jump rope warm up (mind you I was breathing really hard after this alone) and then the wraps and gloves were on! I learned how to punch and then in between we would do drills. You guys, it was so hard!! I attribute a lot of it to 1. not doing any cardio since October and 2. I've been hitting the gym SO hard that literally my entire body was sore. Anyway I'm really excited to keep doing this and hopefully this can be my cardio once I start incorporating it back into my routine because it was WAY more fun than the treadmill. 

After working all day on programs for my online clients, I took a break to grab some dinner with B. We headed to Sauce where I haven't been in a long time. I was so happy to see that they had a gluten free friendly menu! Each item that is gluten free was marked, and they offer gluten free crusts on their pizza's too. 

As tempting as the pizza was, I went with their roasted veggie salad and added chicken. It had squash, brussles, cranberries, cauliflower, and walnuts. It was so so good and I would definitely go back and order this again. B had the chicken pesto pizza and he said that was great too :) 

I'll be in program writing mode again today and then off to AZ Pro tonight to train- don't forget I'm taking new clients so if you're in the East Valley don't hesitate to reach out! 

Do like to experiment with workouts or stick with the tried and true? 


  1. How do you determine what your macro nutrients are? And then once you figure those out for carb cycling what would the low and high day ranges be?

    1. There's a calculator about halfway down this page, that would be a good starting point.

    2. Thank you so much. It's funny you mentioned her program because I just started it.

  2. I don't know what looks better the salad or the pizza. yum! =)

  3. trying new things is my FAVORITE in the workout world!!!!!!

  4. I JUST started working with a trainer online who developed a program for me to train for a huge cycling event in June. The change in my training is KILLING me, but I love it!

  5. Brittany that is funny because I went to Sauce yesterday and was happy to see Gluten Free Pizza for my Tyla Girl. You can also have their salad on a Pizza which is yummy. I would love to have you train me sometime. I just printed all my favorite recipes of yours from your blog and out in protector sheets and 3 ring binder since you don't have a cookbook out...hint hint. ~Kristy
