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 ...

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 ...
