Make Me Stronger Workout

This morning I woke up and felt good.  Had good energy and sipped on water prior to this workout.  It is intense because my trainer incorporated a bunch of trisets and combinations that kept the body working and guessing.  On my way home I passed my husband on the way to the gym - he thought he would still catch me there to "smoke me" as he ...

Exercising While on Vacation

When people think of vacation they think of the great outdoors, exotic location, big adventures, rest, and relaxation.  I know I do.  Last year my hubby and I went on a cruise and I brought my running gear and was very proud of myself.   I actually worked out on the treadmill for 30 minutes a day.
