Kicking off this last weekend of June with an Upper Body Workout: (click to enlarge!) Give it a shot and let me know how it goes! I have managed to stick to my workouts and foam rolling this week! I am LOVING the Soldier of Steel workouts because it is a different change of pace for me. Like on Wednesday, […]

 How are your workouts going so far this week? I’m hanging in there with mine. Yesterday I taught Power Pump and it was a day off from running for me. Thank goodness because my legs were still hurting from Monday’s run! I did do the strength portion of yesterday’s Soldier of Steel Workout: 300 sec Forward Leaning Rest (AKA Plank) […]

Happy Monday! One week left in June can you believe it! Your Monday Motivational quote: My weekend in pictures: This morning I was up bright and early and tried a new bagel from Wegmans: Ancient Grain and I added some Sunbutter to it If you haven’t tried Sunbutter, I highly recommend it! It’s all natural (peanut and gluten free) and made […]

So “Man of Steel” came out last Friday and of course, everyone now wants the body of Superman (Henry Cavill). The last movie to have an influence on the fitness world was “300”.  Ironically enough, the director of “300”, Zack Snyder, also directed “Man of Steel.” I have yet to see the movie but learning about how the actors got […]

Hello all! Yes, I know, I skipped writing a post yesterday. It was my day off from work and I told myself I would do absolutely nothing in front of the computer. I did think about you all though! I drive by a park every night when I come home from work and I finally got the opportunity to check it […]

Yesterday I talked about how my pregnancy and labor went, today, it’s all about the baby blues. You know your life is going to change after having a baby. Friends tell you your life is going to change. But they put it in a nice way so they don’t scare you. I appreciated that, but I also appreciated my friend […]

Today’s post is going in a different direction: my baby girl turns 1 today and I only found it fitting that I should talk about her. It’s a bit long so I’ll make it a two parter! I found out I was pregnant with Addison on October 10, 2011 : the day after Chris and I ran the Army 10 Miler race. That […]

Another week is here! I thought the following quote was appropriate (credit to HuffPost Living): I hope your weekend was enjoyable and you were able to sweat. No sweat sessions for me unfortunately (maybe the rest was good) because we had family in town for Addison’s 1st Birthday party. She will turn 1 this Wednesday! I cannot believe how fast […]

I’m alive! Did you miss me? So my back got better and then I ended up coming down with bronchitis! It started off as just a little cough so I thought nothing of it and then it all hit me (fever, chills and violent coughing) last Friday evening. I ended up having to go to Urgent Care and they hooked me […]
