New Workout Wednesday Co-Hostesses

Sheila of The Frugal Exerciser and I decided to collaborate on our own blog link up targeting fitness, wellness, health and running blogs.  We named it Workout Wednesday (WOW) Link Up because it was catchy and fairly described what we were blogging about and linking up. We kicked off our very first Workout Wednesday Link Up on Wednesday, ...

J is for Jump Rope

Easily one of my favorite forms of cardio, I think many of us forget how effective jumping rope is.  I decided to buy a jump rope years into my adulthood when I watched Zuzana of Zuzka Light and formerly of the BodyRock TV days jumping rope and working up a sweat.  Another fitness guru who got me motivated to jump rope was Jennifer Nicole ...

I is for I.C.E.

  I.C.E. is the typical combination for anyone with an injury that requires recuperation.   I = Ice – the cold helps muscles constrict and alleviates pain and swelling.  If a body party is injured it typically swells and this helps to better manage that.  C = Compression - Sqeeze baby…….constrict the burdened area so ...

H is for Health

Health means different things to different people.  For some it is physical endurance.  For others it is beating a debilitating disease.  For others it is improving what they put in their mouth.  Define what health is for you and then do you research to optimize it.  Do you have high blood pressure? Is it hereditary?  What do you need to ...

G is for Goals

I will admit, I am not one to set too many goals when it comes to fitness.  A friend once told me to sign up for a race therefore I would have a goal to strive for to help with my long distance run training.  It didn’t help – signing up for a half marathon did not actually make me train more or harder than I normally would.    Now ...

Meal Mondays: Panera Bread Greek Salad with Shrimp Review

  Since I'm participating in my own Cinch an Inch challenge I have been working very hard to rethink my food choices especially when I eat out.  Now let me explain - this past week was my birthday so I ate out almost every day.  If it wasn't lunch then it was for dinner and more lunch and dinner.  I mean I did go a bit overboard but ...

E is for Effort

One of the things I have learned since working out with groups, personal trainers and coaches is the "E" word - EFFORT.  **Warning**  This post may sound a bit like a rant like one of my other posts about putting down those light weights but if I didn't love you enough to tell the truth then there is no need to having this platform.  I ...

D is for Diet

When I started working out with a trainer in 2008 she constantly told me I should eat clean.  In other words I needed to clean up my diet.  Honestly – I had no idea what she was talking about.  I thought I was eating healthily.  I mean my diet consisted of eating fruit at the bottom yogurt, orange juice not from concentrate and grapes or ...

C is for Cardio

We women tend to lean towards cardio.  Perhaps it is because we are told it burns fat.  Also, if you don't sweat during a workout do you ever feel like you ever really worked out?  I love cardio like the next person so let me share some of my favorite forms of cardio. 1.  Stepmill:  I normally call this machine a BEAST because it will ...

B is for Burpees

Don’t we all find burpees just fantabulous?  I mean the more you do the more you want to do right?  We absolutely love the feeling of your heart about to pound out of your chest while trying to catch your breath.    Of course I’m being facetious but you get my point.  Burpees are my least favorite exercise for oh so many ...
