short & sweet

Hey y’all!

I hope everyone is having a fabulous Saturday. I have been cooped up inside the past couple of days due to the icy roads and an annoying cold :( However, when I woke up this morning the roads were clear, and I felt a million times better! Thanks NyQuil, lol.

So after my breakfast this morning (steel cut oats w/ walnuts, and brown sugar), I decided to get back to the gym! I had been feeling so lazy due to the weather and my cold so I was thrilled to get some exercise today.

Here’s the workout:

10 pushups

20 KB squats

30 reverse crunches

40 second plank

50 jump rope

*4 rounds

It took me about 25 minutes, and boy did I sweat! I love circuit training because you get an awesome workout in less than thirty minutes! Short and sweet ;)

If you have any questions about the exercises or how to modify an exercise, just let me know!

Have a great weekend,

xo Ragan

 

Welcome!

Hi there! Welcome to my blog. I’m Ragan, and I’m here to help those who wish to start leading a healthier lifestyle. I’ve been interested in health and fitness for the majority of my life. However, only recently did I discover the importance of exercise and nutrition when it comes to living a long healthy life. Exercise and nutrition go beyond looking good in a bikini or being satisfied with the number the scale gives you. With proper nutrition and exercise we can avoid lifestyle diseases that are taking over our society. I understand that some health issues are non modifiable, and they are related to family history. However, there are many modifiable diseases out there that can be avoided with proper diet and exercise. I don’t know about you, but veggies and weight training sounds a lot better than hospital bill and medical visits! And let’s be honest…looking good in a bikini is a nice perk, lol.

So you might be wondering, what is Ragan’s blog about? Well, let me clear that up. My blog will include a little bit of everything. I will be posting some of my daily workouts, my favorite recipes, current events in health and fitness, workout music, daily motivation, and anything else you guys want! Just send me a message if you have any topics you want me to cover.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy my blog!
