Time For Some Action Week In Review

That was my mantra this week since I am participating in the Femme Fitale Fit Club Fall Fifty Challenge.  I was determined to get out there and rack up some miles because truth be told - the furthest I have ever run EVER in a single session is 6 miles.  Yup, I admit, confess and now share it with the world.  I can sprint short distances all ...

Work It Wednesday Workout

Can you walk and chew gum at the same time?  Are you that coordinated?  If so, then you should be able to handle this workout because it has you doing multiple movements together so you have no choice but to focus and concentrate.  I did arrive a few minutes late (not like me at all) as I was slow moving climbing out of bed but I got in a good ...

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!  ...

What pro athletes do in the gym that you probably don’t?

It’s been three months, you’ve been hitting the gym routinely and you can’t see or feel any difference in your physique. So what you do is search the internet for some magical new workout routine that will help break this plateau; some possible workout secret that’s been posted to a blog that has somehow eluded you all these years.

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 ...
