Day to Day // Triceps, Biceps, and Shoulders

Yesterday I woke up at the butt-crack-of-dawn like I usually do on week days. My alarm goes off at 5:05 am, I hit snooze, then it goes off again at 5:14 am.   I grumble for a minute and I get out of bed at 5:15.

The Daily Grind: Leg Day!

Of all the workout days, leg day is my favorite. I don’t know why. Sure, I feel like I’m dying throughout the workout and I can’t sit on the toilet without being in pain for days afterwards… …but I find an odd satisfaction in leg day DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness). Being sore is an accomplishment. Some of my favorite leg exercises are actually really...

Keeping Carrie Fit: The Website!

Say what?! I am SUPER excited that Keeping Carrie Fit is branching further out into the interwebz! For the past year, I’ve posted on Facebook and, while I love the Facebook platform, I’ve felt limited in the things I can post and say because no one wants to read a 500 word long status.
