Inch by Inch

I have worked really hard to share amazing transformation stories with all of you.  The ladies who have been featured are nothing short of AMAZING!  In all of this I failed to take a look in the mirror at my own progress.  It is slow but steady and I could not have done it without the support of my loving husband and amazing friends!  I have a ...

DOUBLES!

I double dipped today.  I already had plans to work out with my trainer at Brick Bodies Fitness Center in Reisterstown but I did something impromptu and also went out to run 3 miles afterwards!  It was exhilarating!!!!! Considering we had so many squats and lunges yesterday in boot camp - today was no easy task.  IT HURT!  Want to see what I ...

MVP!

Today was the last day of boot camp for me for the March session.  It was tough I ain't gon' lie.  We did the dreadful squats across the gym, walking lunges with shoulder presses and then these shuffle squats!  OOOOCCHHH! We had some awards today which I always enjoy because it is a time when the boot camp recognizes some of its clients for ...

Heart Attack

That is what it felt like I was having when I sprinted my way around the gym today in boot camp.  This is the 4th week of boot camp and our instructor took it up a notch to TEST us on everything we should have improved upon from week 1.  Whether this was your first boot camp or your 21st, we got it in today. Test #1 Run a mile in under 10 ...

No Excuses #Workout

Sometimes you have to be flexible and that is just what I was this morning.  My trainer needed to move my time so I met her bright and early at 5:00 am today.  Well it actually wasn't that bright - it was PITCH BLACK but I showed up rearing to go.  I got there before they even unlocked the doors.  Below is the workout of the day.  No excuses ...

I Am In Second Place – Please Vote!

I entered a contest at the beginning of March that lasts until May 31st.  It is a contest (Social Treadmill Challenge) at my gym, Brick Bodies, and I am really trying to win.  Right now I am in second place trying to take over first but it is an uphill climb I see. I know many of you who follow this blog have never met me in person or know me ...

Where Have You Been All My Life – Polar FT4 Review

If you have been following this blog you know I had an HRM I used that gave me less than stellar results.  You would also know I have been participating in boot camp since like August 2012 and am still in my last session (I plan to take a break for April).  Anywho - based on reading so many other pages and posts, I finally found a heart ...

Check My Heart Beat

I am more than excited.  I finally purchased my first Polar HRM to monitor my heart rate while working out.  YIPPEE for me!  This may not seem like such a big deal but it IS because I have had trouble in the past finding a dependable yet simple HRM to use during my workouts.  Quite honestly - the only time I used it was when I was running...

SHOTS #Workout

I was sweating up a storm today with today's workout.  I was working hard PLUS it was hot up in there.  Either way I started my workout with a 9-minute mile treadmill warm up.  Gotta get that blood flowing.  So warm up on the treadmill - go quick so your body doesn't know what you are up to and WERK IT!  ENJOY! Equipment: Bench Dumbbells...

BOOOOO #Workout

I love my trainer to death.  Been working out with her for a minute now.  I am seeing progress and results.  But seriously - after boot camp, I am SOOOO not in the mood for her.  I say this because sometimes I end up working the same body part which is achey and sore.  Thursday at Sanders Optimum Fitness Boot Camp we did at least 400 ...
