Guest Post: Indoor vs. Outdoor Exercise


Las Vegas: Stay Fit Outdoors
You’d never believe how much time I used to spend at the gym. I would leave work around 5 o’clock, and I wouldn't arrive home until 8 or 9 o’clock most nights. The thing is, I didn’t necessarily like it at the gym -- all those sweaty people cramped into the same space, running about like hamsters on a wheel. The problem was that I didn’t know of a better way to get my workouts in.
Many others have opted for a simpler solution, such as running outdoors, going for a bike ride or even biking to errands. But my concerns for safety and the health issues caused by pollution always kept me from trying these solutions. But, after moving to a new place, I realized that each individual’s workout preference can vary depending on what town or city they live in. In fact, you might believe that my relocation to Las Vegas would only provide further encouragement to keep my workouts indoors, but the opposite ended up happening. 
Here’s my story:
Five years ago I moved to Las Vegas and wasn’t there for even a day when I thought to myself, “Crap! Where and how am I going to be able to safely exercise outdoors here?” When people think of Sin City, they don’t exactly associate it with exercise or see it as the beacon of health or mecca of fitness options (other than walking up and down the strip all day and night long). But I was soon proven wrong; as it turns out, there are many beautiful, natural settings in Las Vegas that are perfect for getting your sweat on.
The city of Las Vegas is located right in the middle of the Mojave Desert, and it’s a breathtakingly beautiful natural landscape with scenic bike trails that go on for mile after mile. One of the best resources for biking in the desert, and the one I use all the time, is this resource for finding safe bike trails. Believe me; the desert is one place you do not want to get lost in while riding your bike!
Another great Las Vegas fitness fact that many cyclists and would-be cyclists don’t know about is that Sin City is one of America’s Cycle-Friendly Cities, named as one of the best by the League of American Bicyclists! What an awesome and unexpected resource it’s turned out to be! Now that I’ve lived in LV for a while, it’s not surprising that such a resourceful listing exists. Las Vegas recently invested $500,000 installing bicycle racks and lockers in the downtown area. Likewise, the city has added 390 bike lanes throughout the area!
If you happen to be traveling to Las Vegas and don’t want to sacrifice your fitness, this fantastic resource will help locate fitness-friendly hotels and activities. There are plenty of ways on this site to search for hotels and fitness activities that suit your
personal preferences. In fact, before moving here, I stayed for extended visits a couple of times to make sure I really wanted to take the leap and relocate to Las Vegas. What I found out was that the hotels here have great gyms and the front desk staff offered excellent outdoor fitness advice, as well as ideas on where to find health-conscious food and drink. Don’t believe it? Come to my new city that I love so much and see for yourself. 

Indoor Gym Workouts For Kelsey

I am the exact opposite of Bridget. I like to workout indoors. I am a HUGE sissy when it comes to cold weather, so I like to guarantee that I get my workout in by doing them inside.

I also like to workout indoors because I am NOT a runner. My favorite form of exercise is group fitness classes. I am obsessed with Dance Fit! I actually TEACH it now!!! Wahoo!!! It's kinda like Zumba, but uses modern pop and country songs instead of Latin music. Another group fitness class I enjoy is Spin. There is just something about the music pumping and having other people around you to pump you up and make you workout harder!

I am also a huge fan of strength training. My hubby has taught me that weights and creating muscle is very important and is actually really beneficial for your metabolism. I really enjoy M/W/F's now because they are my strength training days! They really make me feel strong and fit!


The bottom line is that you have to find out what workout is best for YOU! Make sure you have fun so you will continue for the rest of your life! Being healthy is the way to go!

Suncups Review

We were contacted by Suncups to review their treats. 

Here's some info from their website:
In 2008, a man knocked on the door at Seth Ellis Chocolates with a jar of sunflower butter and a challenge: create a candy cup his peanut-allergic son could eat. The chocolatiers got to work, inspired by the idea of a peanut butter cup for everyone. A jar of sunflower butter, a handful of test batches and a day later, they had cracked the code. Sun Cups were born.
Being a peanut butter cup for everyone is no small task. It calls for unseen levels of nut-free, gluten-free, Certified Kosher deliciousness. And being the overachievers they are, the chocolatiers also made their creation all natural, using cacao from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms. That means the chocolate in Sun Cups comes from farms that look out for their workers and the planet. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate Sun Cups debuted in 2009. And in 2011, we added Milk Chocolate Caramel Cups and Dark Chocolate Mint Cups to the lineup to spread the love to even more dessert-earners worldwide.
Today, our Boulder chocolate factory is buzzing around the clock churning out chocolate safe for nut allergies.

Jared was in charge of this review, because he is the one who eats chocolate. Let me tell you, he was MORE than happy to handle this review all by himself! ;)

All the flavors are a 9/10. They tasted fantastic. 
 My favorite by far is the caramel cups!  They tasted awesome! 
 I know the standard of peanut butter cups is Reese, 
but these are a great healthier option without compromising taste.
 You can taste the sun butter which in my opinion is very good! 
 These are a great snack!!!

Just a FEW of the things we're thankful for...

God has blessed us with SO MUCH. We wanted to share just a FEW of the things that we are thankful for...

Jared was able to travel to Florida and practice at the Disney courses for a week before the Second Stage of Q-School. (UPDATE: HE MADE IT TO THE FINAL STAGE!!! We are also thankful that I will be able to travel and stay with him in California!!!)

Kelsey has a great job that she LOVES. 

 She has fallen in love with Baby Drew and Amelia...


 We are both VERY thankful for QUALITY TIME that we can spend together. 

Jared travels a lot with golf, and we are so very thankful for those times when he is home and we can just enjoy spending time together. The first day he came home from second stage, we watched church online and ate pizza and laid in bed all day. It was the PERFECT lazy day full of quality time! 

We are excited for this new journey that we are going through. Praying that we make wise decisions in the days ahead and know that ultimately God has it under control!

Naturally Fresh Deoderant Crystal Review

 Naturally Fresh Deoderant Crystal sent us some products to review. 

Here's some info about them:
Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal products are made of mineral salts, which are * Pure and natural * Fragrance Free (products also available in scented varieties) * Non-staining * 24-hour effective * Hypoallergenic The products function as natural deodorants that kill odor-causing bacteria, while permitting the pores to excrete toxins naturally. This is vital to maintain healthy, auxiliary lymph nodes which are located in the underarm area

Who Should Use the Products? Approximately 10 percent of the population cannot use conventional deodorants for various reasons. Generally, either the perfumes which are used to mask odor or the antiperspirant ingredients will act as allergens and cause rash and irritation. Naturally Fresh Crystal Deodorant is ideal for: * Men and Women with sensitive skin and require hypoallergenic products * People seeking a healthy alternative or better lifestyle * People undergoing radiation and cancer treatment.

Aluminum Issue Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal has no harmful aluminums. Naturally-occurring aluminum compounds are abundant in our environment. They are found in most foods and drinking water. Many people and doctors have concerns in respect to the processed aluminums found in conventional deodorants. These processed aluminums have very small molecules and can penetrate the skin. Alum, on the other hand, is naturally occurring and not processed. It has a large molecule and does not penetrate the surface of the skin. Our products are officially endorsed by Dr. Melanie Bone, a gynecological surgeon and long-term breast cancer survivor. 

# 1 Dr. Recommended Dr. Melanie Bone is a gynecological surgeon with over 20 years of experience and long-term breast cancer survivor. She is the founder of the Cancer Sensibility Foundation ( as well as Cancer Shop USA ( Her goal is to provide consumers with insight into the benefits of using our Roll-Ons and Spray Mists, specifically for people looking to prevent cancer, for cancer patients and for cancer survivors. Dr. Bone also encourages the use of our products prior to mammogram screenings to avoid reading errors sometimes associated with the use of conventional, aluminum-containing antiperspirants.

We enjoyed using the roll-on the most. The spray was a little more messy, but still worked well. The chapstick was great! It took a little getting used to this new deodorant, but overall, we enjoyed it. The most unusual part about it was that you still sweat on your underarms, but it doesn't STINK! I originally thought it wasn't working that well, but it actually did! After we got over the fact that we would still sweat, we enjoyed the products more...

Tru-Nut Peanut Butter Review and GIVEAWAY!

Tru-Nut sent us some of their powdered Peanut Butter to review! Here's some info from their website:
Powdered Peanut Butter is the newest thing to happen to peanut butter in… well, a long time.  Tru-Nut makes Powdered Peanut Butter in three flavors, original peanut butter flavor and chocolate, and their newest addition, CINNAMON. Unlike traditional peanut butter, Tru-Nut contains at least 85% less fat and fat calories.  Tru-Nut is non-GMO, all-natural and gluten-free.  So how is it made?

Revitalize Protein Powder Review

We were sent some samples of SBV High Quality Supplements to review. 

Revitalize Classic Blend
Ultra High Quality German Whey Concentrate (80% protein)
Micellar Casein
Sweetener: Stevia (All Natural)
No Soy
Gluten Free

Peanut Butter Cookie Crumble
Banana Nut Bread
CocoaNut (Chocolate Coconut Almond)

Our Review: 

First of all, I have to share info from an email from the owner.
"Our samples are hand made upon order fresh from an open jar. We don't pre-make them and allow for them to sit for extended periods of time." 

 We really enjoyed that these protein powders were super fresh! We appreciate the extra time and effort from the company. 

The flavors tasted great! I really liked the Peanut Butter Cookie and Banana Nut Bread. 

***Funny Story***
I immediately gave Jared the CocoaNut (since it was chocolate flavored and I don't eat chocolate). He said it tasted good, but that he didn't think I should try it because it tasted chocolatey. I told him, "Of course it does, it is COCOA NUT! haha" and He replied, "ohhhhh... I thought it was just plain coconut. I didn't notice the spelling." HAHAHAHA!!!

Aside from the flavor misunderstanding, we really enjoyed these powders! They weren't chalky. They mixed smoothly and tasted great!

We were sent Eat-Smart Bars, Nogii Protein Bars and NOW Energy Bars. 

Here's some info about Soy Protein:
These products will help make sure you’re getting the nutrients you need after a long workout with a key ingredient for success: soy protein. 

Soy protein is a high-quality, plant-based protein which promotes muscle growth and development and can help preserve lean body mass during weight loss. A blend of proteins – soy, whey and casein, may also prolong muscle building after exercise and increases recovery compared to whey alone.

Fall Happenings

We have been enjoying a lovely fall so far! Luckily, it hasn't been TOO cold yet, and I have been able to enjoy nice walks with the kiddos I nanny for during the day. I love the family! The kids are super sweet and a pleasure to hangout with, and the parents are extremely nice and help us with whatever we need during the day! Jared practices at a golf course on Mondays that is five minutes from the house, so he stops by for lunch when he can. The kids love him as well and he enjoys hanging out with them too.
Yesterday, the weather was beautiful, so we headed over to the park to play for a while. It is right next to the golf course, so Amelia was super excited to "putt" with Mr. Jared. (she just rolled the ball on the green..hahaha) She also got to "pretend" she was driving the golf cart.

I've been trying some new recipes lately, and this was just one evening's menu. I made a version of chicken cordon bleu from a Hungry Girl Recipe.  I just eliminated the bun. I made a batch of Apple Pie Protein muffins for dessert (and snacking throughout the week). They were really good!

For Halloween, our niece and nephew had the cutest costumes. 

Boston was Super Grover. He is OBSESSED with him. On a daily basis, he will put on a cape and "fly" around the house and answers to "Super Grover", not Boston. haha.

Charlotte was "Charlotte's Web". I thought it was a very clever idea! Props to Holly (her mom) on that one! :)

Well, that's what has been going on with the Wolfepack lately. Hope you all are enjoying the fall season as well!

Enjoy Life Chewy Bars (New Formula) Review

Enjoy Life sent us their Chewy Bars with their new formula to try and review!

Here's some info from their website:
Soft and chewy, our bars are a perfectly delicious and wholesome breakfast, midday snack, lunch box treat, or late day pick-me-up. There are four great-tasting flavors to satisfy everyone's cravings and they are packed full of essential vitamins and minerals for added health benefits. Our portion control, 1 oz bars are sure to make everyone smile with delight! Look for them in our bright new packaging in the gluten-free or cereal bar section of your favorite store.

Our Review: 
These little bars were full of flavor and yummy goodness! The caramel apple was Kelsey's favorite. Jared liked the Cocoa Loco the best. (Go figure, considering Kelsey loves caramel and Jared loves chocolate! haha) 
The only reason we gave them a 9/10 was because we wished they were bigger! (that always seems to be the case with us! haha.. we have big appetites!) But, we enjoyed these as an after meal dessert. They were just the right size for those times when you're still a little hungry, but don't want to eat too much more!

I also gave some to the little two year old I nanny and she LOVED them! Her mom was so impressed by the company because it's hard finding her things to eat because she is allergic to tree nuts! Her mom is going to buy more Enjoy Life products! :)

Barnanas Review

Barnana sent us some banana bites to review! Here's some info from their website:
Barnana only uses whole, organic ingredients. When you eat Barnana, you are getting the pure wholesome nutrition that your body needs with no chemicals and no preservatives. The healthiest, best tasting food on earth comes in its organic form. Aside from helping you be healthy, growing organically also helps our planet stay healthy too, allowing our ecosystems to flourish with all kinds of life.
Barnana has no wheat, no oats, and no forms of gluten. We are gluten free because there is no treatment for those with celiac disease besides following a gluten-free diet. Celiac disease affects about 1 in 133 Americans, we’ll keep you healthy and feeling good.
Barnana is grown in soil alive with nutrients and free of chemicals, the way nature intended. We dehydrate our bananas under 40 °C (104 °F). By using this technique, it allows the nutrition density and natural enzymes to remain intact which are critical in building proteins and rebuilding the body. Raw bananas also harness beneficial mico-organisms that aid in digestion.
Barnana is the Super Potassium Snack. Potassium helps you maintain energy in your muscles, activity in your nerves and aids in healhy digestion. Potassium is an essential mineral your body needs to function optimally. Diets containing foods that are a good source of potassium and that are low in sodium may also reduce your risk of high blood pressure.
Barnana has more fiber. Fiber is important for a heart healthy diet that may reduce the risk of heart disease and lower cholesterol, maintain blood sugar levels, and aid in digestive health.
Barnana uses no animal based ingredients. Barnana is safe, healthy, and animal free.
Our Review:


These little bites were awesome! We loved the chewy texture! They were full of great flavor! Jared enjoyed the chocolate covered ones as a little treat. We liked to eat these by themselves, but we also added them to our oatmeal bakes for a yummy surprise in the middle! :)

SMART Detour Bars Review

 Detour Bars sent me some of their new SMART bars to review! Here's some info from their website:

You are what you eat. Eat SMART.

We started SMART bars with organic whole grain oats which are certified gluten free and added wholesome whey, the right protein to replenish your body. We sweetened the bars naturally and ensured each is a good source of fiber.

Gluten Free

Detour SMART bars are independently certified to confirm they meet strict gluten-free standards.

Whey Protein

The right protein to nourish and replenish your body, whey is a SMART way to support a lean body and to satisfy hunger. Learn more.

4g of Sugar

Switching to a low-sugar diet may be one of the best things you can do for your body, your appetite, and even your mind.

Good Source of Fiber

The grains and fruit in SMART bars are a balanced source of fiber and a nutritious foundation for maintaining good health.


These bars were FABULOUS! I loved that they were a "mini" protein bar compared to our typical protein bars that we eat. This was the perfect size for those times when you're finished with lunch, but you're still a little hungry. I also enjoyed them as a mid-morning snack to tide me over to lunch for those days when I was up really early for the gym and ate breakfast early.

Being Confident

Today I wanted to talk a little about being confident! If you've read my "About Me" page, you know that I struggled with body confidence and eating in my teenage years. 
Until I met Jared, I still had those thoughts in my head every now and then and would let them get to me. But, Jared has shown me that it is just Satan trying to hurt me. God created us all uniquely and  intricately and we need to stop comparing ourselves to others! If we were all exactly the same, it would be really boring! 

Marriage has been an amazing confidence booster! I know that Jared loves me and he loves my body exactly the way God made it. He has told me over and over again, "Kelsey, I think you're the most beautiful when you are CONFIDENT in yourself. It doesn't matter if you've gained a few pounds, I DON'T CARE. As long as you are confident, you look beautiful in my eyes. I just want you to be healthy". I am SO GRATEFUL that God blessed me with Jared as my husband because he has helped me feel better about myself.

When those annoying and crushing thoughts come into my head now, I just tune them OUT! I will NOT let the Devil win! I trust my husband, but more importantly, trust that GOD knew what He was doing when He made me. 

I am focusing on being HEALTHY and STRONG. Yes, I LOVE to workout, but I am not going to beat myself up anymore if I miss a workout. I am feeding my muscles the proper nutrients to be strong and healthy! 

I hope that you all will join me and BE CONFIDENT in yourself! 

Talk to me... What helps you stay confident in yourself? Leave me a comment please! :) I'd love to hear what you have to say!

Zim's Advanced and Arnica Max Review

Zim's sent us their brand new products to review! Here's some info:
Zim's Advanced with Hydrocortisone is the latest in naturally-based first aid products that help with a host of skin care issues including rashes, insect bites, eczema and psoriasis. The Zim's Advanced Gel with Acemannan can help treat cuts, scrapes, abrasions and burns.

Zim's Advanced Gel with Acemannan will be available in a 3-oz. version and Zim's Advanced with Hydrocortisone will be available in a 3-oz. cream form as well as a 3.25-oz. continuous spray.  

"We are not just about cracked skin anymore,'' said Perfecta Products, Inc. Director of Marketing & Sales Mark Smith."Our new Zim's Advanced items are designed to meet consumers' request for more natural-based products. We have combined science and nature to create superior products."

In addition to Zim's Advanced, Perfecta Products will also release Zim's Arnica Max. Zim's Arnica Max includes a proprietary blend of Arnica and Aloe Vera which includes organic Aloe, natural Menthol and Arnica. It will be available in 4-oz. gel and 3-oz. roll-on.
Arnica is one of the most popular homeopathic medicines and used by many athletes and weekend warriors worldwide.

"Perfecta Products has been a leader in the use of arnica and other natural products in the topical analgesics category. We have been using it in our products for more than 60 years," said Smith. "We felt it was important to bring out a new product specially formulated using maximum arnica to provide temporary relief of minor aches and pains of muscle and joints associated with simple backache, arthritis, strains, bruises and sprains.''

Zim's Arnica Max will be sold in stores and through online retailers by the end of the year. It is positioned to provide better value and better savings for customers and bigger margin for retailers. The 4-oz. gel or 3-oz. roll-on at a suggested retail price of $9.99 offers a significantly lower cost per ounce than the leading brands of Arnica topical products.

These products couldn't have come at a better time. I pulled something in my back at the gym a couple days before we received these. I was using regular muscle relief cream and it wasn't helping very much. After a couple days using the Arnica Max, my back felt SO MUCH BETTER! We really enjoyed the soft scent of the Arnica Max. It was a lot easier on the nose than the regular creams that we've used previously. We also liked the fact that it was natural!

Stone Fire Naan, Pitas, and Pizza Crust Review

 Stonefire sent us some naan, pitas, and pizza crusts to review! Here some info from their website:

It’s all about authenticity, it’s about being worldly, and it’s about family.
“Don’t fight tradition” is a familiar saying at the Ajmera family table. And this is always referred to in regards to flatbreads, the world’s oldest breads. For the family, the start of the journey in creating Stonefire Authentic Flatbreads was all about being true to the history, heritage and homage of these worldly breads.
The Ajmera’s are very aware that the tradition of making flatbreads has been in existence for over 6,000 years. With participation from almost every corner of the world (from India comes Naan, from the Mediterranean comes Pita) the intrigue in bringing all the different shapes and textures of flatbreads to North America began.
The Stonefire adventure was rooted with two unbreakable rules. Rule #1 – The flatbreads had to be utterly authentic. Only traditional baking methods and the finest ingredients would be used. Why break with tradition? Rule #2 – The flatbreads would be “preservative free” just as they were years ago.

Our Review: 11/10!

 We LOVED everything! We made so many variations of pizzas, including: BBQ Chicken, Fajita, and Veggie. The crust was JUST HOW WE LIKED IT! A little crisp at the bottom, but chewy on top! MMMM MMMM!!! 

Jared is a spicy fan, and he thought the new Sweet Chili flavor was awesome! He said it was spicy, but gooooooood. 

Jared also made a leftover Meatball Cassorole PITA. He said it was awesome! The pitas were just the right size! 

You must try these ASAP!!!

The 17 Day Diet Meal Plan provides you with convenient, weekly delivery of delicious physician-designed, chef-prepared meals.

What's up with the Wolfepack?

 What's up with the Wolfepack?

Well, we've been doing a lot of hanging out with the family.

Our niece, Charlotte, gave Uncle Jared a nice surprise when he woke up after his nap while he was on babysitting duty with Aunt Kelsey.  :)

Cuddle time with my precious niece and nephew! 

Boys bonding time... how sweet is that!?!?

 We've gone to a couple UofL football games. (I got Jared season tickets for his wedding present!)

 I found this goofy hat laying around and couldn't help but snap a pic... 

I started my full time job and LOVE it! I'm nannying for a baby boy who is only 3 months old and a little girl who is 2! They are super sweet! We have a nice little routine going and things are great!

 My birthday was this past Saturday. Jared spoiled me rotten! 
He made breakfast for me!
I had to teach my Dance Blast class at the YMCA (which I just started and I love it!)
Then, he made me lunch.
After, we walked around the mall for a little bit and I got to spend my TJ Maxx card that I got from my in laws.
I opened my presents from Jared and was overwhelmed! He got me a variety pack of my FAVORITE protein bars - QUEST BARS!!

and, he got me a TON of UofL gear! Workout pants, tops, and even SHOES!!

Afterwards, we got a papa johns pizza and watched a movie at home, followed by PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE for dessert! 

It was a wonderful birthday!!! I had a blast hanging out with my BEST FRIEND all day! 



Every once in a while, I ditch the workout clothes, curl my hair, and put on a little makeup for a date night with my hubby. Lucky for me, ...
