Work It Wednesday Workout

This workout was focused primarily on legs.  Everyone knows my hamstrings are TIGHT.  They stay tight.  Well today, my trainer had me working on my hamstrings which must be the weakest part of my body.  I tried not to throw evil looks as I worked through the lactic acid but I am not sure I accomplished that.  Anywho - this is the workout.  ...

End Of Time and Week In Review

  First I would like to say I hope everyone had a wonderful time at the Beyoncé concert these past few weeks.  All I have been seeing on Facebook and Instagram are amazing photos and glimpses of Beyoncé on stage in concert with her hair blowing throwing down the dance moves.  You guys looked like you had a ball and I hear it is one of ...

Blurred Lines and Week In Review

Maaaaannnnnnnnn this week was CRAY CRAY!  I was really sick on Sunday which boiled over into Monday.  Work was hectic and busy with a major launch and my workouts were sporadic.  I was tired ALL WEEK so obviously I did not do my best to stay fully nourished and to get adequate sleep.  It is necessary to get the appropriate amount of sleep and ...

July 22 Workout Week in Review

I am still doubling up with Sanders Optimum Fitness workouts along with my personal trainer's workouts.  I wish Monte and Heather would talk to each other because this week was tough.  I was sore ALL WEEK.  When I say sore, I am talking about abs and hamstrings.  It took a mile run just to warm up my hamstrings in my boot camp class.  OY!  ...

Come Here #Workout

Woke up at the crack of dawn, dressed in the dark and made my way to Brick Bodies gym in Reisterstown, Maryland.  Walked in and waited about 5 minutes for my trainer.  Honestly - I was praying she was a no-show and I could possibly just go back home and jump in the bed.  No such luck - she finally walks out letting me know someone held her up ...

Fine China #Workout

I felt good today.  I came entered the gym with energy, had about 24 oz of water to drink before we started and felt "strong".  Granted I just drove 8 hours from South Carolina the day before on an EMPTY STOMACH but still had a chance to take a nap, wake up in my own time and move at my own pace.  There is something to be said for getting a ...

Wake Up #Workout

I don't have much to say other than sleep is essential to the soul and make sure you get in your 7 or 8 hours.  I walked in the gym this morning feeling whooped.  I swear if I hadn't already paid for these sessions I probably would have stayed my butt in bed.  My SOF sisters went running the 5-mile loop at 5:00 am this morning but I just rolled ...

Balls and Bells #Workout

What more can I say and you are probably tired of hearing me say it but Heather worked me over on Tuesday.  The workout was challenging but gave me energy.  We did a lot of leg work as you will find and it was back to back to back.  I burned some decent calories too. I can't complain....the Dominican Republic vacation is coming up 2nd ...

How Many Drinks #Workout

Aaaaand I was back in there on Friday to turn it up and turn it loose.  I walk in and I am just as chill as I wanna be.  I was feeling good.  Not anticipating the discomfort from the workout.  I came in, stretched and sat down on the bench.  Then we got it started and I didn't think about it - I just kept moving as best I could.  I got ...

Take a Seat #Workout

YAY today was leg day ----- NOT!  I couldn't catch a break with Heather my personal trainer today.  First she had me picking up my own weights!  Told me it is about time I go and get my own weights.  She normally picks them up and hands them to me.  Then she had me walk lunging all over kingdom come and THEN she had me sit on the wall for ...

Ouch #Workout

There is something to be said for the term "No Pain No Gain".  I don't want to think of it like pain but rather soreness.  Pain means the body is in some sense of danger or distress.  Being sore to me just means I pushed it and now the body needs to rebuild.  Welp my workout last Tuesday had me so sore it was ridiculous!  She spared no ...

Get ULTRA RIPPED with the MAN OF STEEL Workout

I was fortunate enough to be invited to the movie premier of Man of Steel before the rest of the world. I was shocked to see how ripped Henry Cavill (Superman) got. After some research I discovered his secret for packing on massive muscle in such a short time. Let me share with you my findings. First, let me state that Henry Cavill worked with ...

Let's check out my workouts for this week so far: Monday Day 1 of boot camp and we were placed in the small ...

Champion #Workout

I know I don't want to be a complainer.  During yesterday morning's workout - I didn't complain but I did cut eyes a few times.  You know - trying to get my head in the game.  Sometimes it can be a real challenge.  I got it in within 30 minutes though and Heather kept me moving.  Wouldn't you know right when I started my workout I realized I ...

Captain Chair #Workout

Folks, I am back in the gym with my personal trainer Heather Brooke Malone Wolf.  It was on today!!!  Have you ever looked at yourself and felt you could look better?  I know push the negatives aside and focus on the positives.  I am sore so that IS a positive!  A good sore of course.  You know trainers can help you push you through your ...

Shoulda Let You Go #Workout and Week In Review

I guess you have figured it out by now I am naming workouts after songs that I have felt the need to use as my power songs for that week.  I am not really hip to all of the latest R&B music out there because I basically listen to CNN in the car, but when I do get an opportunity to hear a new song with a LIVE beat - I find out what it is and ...
