My husband and I are both in WAAAAY better shape now than on our wedding day 2 years ago. Today is our anniversary. It saddens me to see people who get married and then let themselves go.... Read more
How I avoided Easter treats (don't try this)

I ate a healthy meal in the car on the way to MIL's dinner. There isn't anything that I like to eat and I'm not going to waste calories on food that's unhealthy AND doesn't taste good.. I was going to allow myself some raw veggies IF I was... Read more
Proof that cellulite free thighs DO exist
Friday, March 21, 2008      0 comments

I just bragged on Coach Nicole's blog that I don't have any cellulite on my thighs (won the genetic lottery in that department!) So I figured I better back up claims like that with a little proof...The picture is completely un-Photoshopped of co... Read more

I wrote this at 6 am for a 9 am presentation while still hung over with NyQuil from the night before. Heh heh! Practice Makes Perfect As no musician would perform without hours of dedicated practice, you should not attend an event wher... Read more

In 1:16:57. Only walking a couple of times when there were huge icy patches. Not breaking any land speed records here, but much improved considering under a year ago I could hardly run for 5 minutes!... Read more
Pushups are awesome
Wednesday, March 12, 2008      3 comments

I am glad none of my clients do 'pushups' like the girl in the green shirt 15 seconds into the video. All she needs to do is start with wall or incline pushups, always making sure she does pushups with a FULL RANGE OF MOTION. I'm not a fan of ... Read more
Pullups...need to improve!

I can do negatives, tons of negatives, but I just cannot haul myself up without a little boost first. I did a GOOD negative but Greg took too long to press the button, then I was laughing and couldn't do another good one. It scares me to t... Read more
On getting up early to exercise
Sunday, February 10, 2008      4 comments

About 5 years ago, I decided I wanted to take this 6:15am step class at the gym. I'd set my alarm for 5:55 or so and have to jump out of bed at the first buzz of the alarm, throw clothes on, run to the bathroom, and shove breakfast down my thro... Read more

I've been wanting new work clothes because I purged my closet of too-big stuff about a month ago, but nothing in the stores caught my eye. I finally saw stuff I liked today and bought an extremely trendy high waisted skirt..get ready for ... Read more

Oooh, I just did a bad thing.. Took an ibuprofen to dull the DOMS pain I have from taking a 4 hour kettlebell workshop yesterday. In the previous KB workshop that I took, there was probably 4 hours of working out, but the session was 8 hou... Read more
Strange observation
Saturday, January 26, 2008      2 comments

The amount of skin I show at the gym is inversely proportionate to how fit I am. When I first started working out, I'd say, be damned with the belly pudge and show up for step class in a bra top and teeny shorts. Then I'd wear long tan... Read more

Last week a friend and I ran 8.4km without a walk break! We meet in a particular parking lot and run towards a large bridge. From the parking lot to the bridge and back is 10.4 km. We came so close to the bridge...I will be ready for that 10K... Read more
SQUATS for life!
Sunday, January 06, 2008      1 comments

Whenever my husband makes a big-scale purchase, as the only other person in the house, I'm expected to "hold up my end" when carrying the item into the house. When you do squats, be sure to do them with a full range of motion, butt-to-the-floor... Read more
