FFFC June Bug Challenges 2013

Hey everybody!!  Phew we made it through May's challenges.  I think a few folks may have slowed down a bit but that is ok - it happens.  June is staring us right in the face and is the month we transition to Summer so we must stay focused and get it in.  This month is a little different.  There are only 2 primary challenges, 3 if you are ...

FFFC May Flowers Challenges 2013

Hey everybody!!  April was a full month of challenges and May isn't any different.  May is the month of Memorial Day and what a great day to milestone progress?  Don't you all agree?  With that said, Summer is also upon us and if you have plans to do the great reveal for the summer then you have to remain committed and consistent throughout ...

Who Needs Medicine?

I work for a health insurance company and every year we have an opportunity to decrease our annual medical benefit premium by participating in a biometric screening.  They measure our cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose, BMI, and blood pressure.  I signed up last week and silly me forgot I had it this morning.  I drank my green smoothie with ...

If You Didn’t Come To Party

Then you should go home.  That is how it is in boot camp.  If you didn't come to work hard - why come out at 5:30 am at all?  We don't come out there to sit on the wall or the bleachers.  We come out there to WORK!  Today was no different.  Thursdays are normally toning day and that means we focus on hand weights and upper and lower body ...

Who Run The World?

Today started off as a very good day.  Got up, got dressed, picked up my neighbor and started Sanders Optimum Fitness boot camp - Week 2.  Our warm up was a walk/jog/sprint to get in our first mile.  Pheewwww I'm used to that later on in the session!  It was good though - I never walk now because I will never catch up if I do.  We did ...

Worthington Overlook Running Crew

I woke up at 6:30 am because since I normally wake up at 5 am my body is just used to being up.  Not a bad thing just an observation.  I sent out an invite earlier this week about a Worthington Overlook Run with the ladies of Femme Fitale in the private group as well as on the email distribution list.  I received 2 RSVPs.  One person showed ...

Day 3 Boot Camp – DRINK MY SWEAT!

Arrived at boot camp late ya'll.  They had already started the 1-mile, 10-minute jog as I was putting down my stuff.  Something told me they were going to warm us up with running in the Sanders Optimum Fitness Boot Camp so I prepared and already had my earphones and iPod shuffle hooked up ready to pop in my ears so I dropped my bag and TOOK ...

Boot Camp, Green Smoothies OH MY!

It's April 8th and we started off the April boot camp session today!  Wow, what a difference a week off makes!  I didn't really have an entire week off.  I did continue going to the gym, doing the stepmill and working on my cardio but this stuff never ever really compares to a boot camp session.  BUT I got it in and got through it.  We did ...

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 ...

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 ...

Working Out Pays Off

If you have been following this blog you know that I have been attending boot camp faithfully daily and on a regular basis since October 2012.  You also am up to date that I do Essence of Vitality on a regular basis and am about to start on my 4th bottle.  It gives me energy, mental clarity and helps clean out the gut where diseases form.  ...

Reminiscing on 2012

Wow what an amazing year for me and my family.  Not just in fitness but overall.  I will keep this post focused on fitness though.  When the year began I was a stepmill queen.  I learned about it around October/November of 2011 and was using it to up my cardio at every turn because it was one of the few machines in the gym where I found I ...

Back In The Saddle – SOF Boot Camp, Week 3, Day 3

I must be a glutton for punishment.  I am signed BACK up for boot camp and we just completed week 3 of a 4-week 1-hour session.  This week was BRUTAL.  I can't lie.  We did more sprints, mile runs, jumping jacks, 1000 abs, squats, lunges, did I say jumping jacks than any top fit athlete, let alone a regular every day Joan like ME has gotten ...

Bootcamp Season #2 Session 12

Thursday - SUCCESS DAY! Yes folks!  I finally completed the minute drill within the MINUTE LIMIT!!!  What is a minute drill you ask?  It is a sprint drill where you run between 2 baselines 15 times all within a minute.  They tell you, if you haven't hit at least the 7th drill by 30 seconds you are going to struggle to make all 15 within the ...

Girl on Fire #Workout

Ya'll...I did something I do not ordinary do.  I did an evening workout on Monday!  I am usually so tired from the rigors of the day I can't usually squeak out an evening workout but I made some promises to some acquaintances of my son's pee wee football league.  My boot camp had a free session this Monday so I went in the evening to particip...

Bootcamp Season #2 Sessions 8&9

Wednesday What I gained in those 2 days off this week I expended in energy at boot camp on Wednesday and Thursday!  Those two days were no joke.  But I was determined. I went to bed late but was determined to get at least 6 hours of sleep.  Did not happen.   I got up anyway.  My regular partner in crime stayed in bed and skipped this ...

Bootcamp Season #2 Session 7

Hi everybody!!!  I hope everyone had a productive and ACTIVE weekend!  I know I did.  I actually did the online workout prescribed by the SOF boot camp and did pretty good.  It included 10, 10M sprints which I did on the treadmill at 9 mph.  Clearly I need to amp that up to 10 mph because my sprints this morning were still short.  But I am ...

Bootcamp Season #2 Session 4&6

Much like the hurricane - this week is a BLUR with stiff bodies left in its wake.  I did not attend the MOnday morning session even though they still held it at 5:30 am because I just did not want to risk it.  I felt I could work out at home - which I did not.  Tuesday I ran for 35 minutes with sprint drills and did 100 squats due to an online ...
