S is for Snacks

// The letter "S" is for snacks.  If any of you are like me, working out multiple times a week constantly leaves me hungry throughout the day. On one hand that is a good thing, gives me an inclination my metabolism is burning but on the other hand - it gets difficult to make the right choice if I do not plan properly. Check out my quick ...

Q is for Quiet Time

There's something to be said for those individuals who have quiet time in the morning to meditate and spend time with themselves and God during the quiet hours of the morning.  They tend to be less stressed and happier people.  I know people personally who meditate and are better for it.  They are the see the cup half full vs. half empty ...

P is for Push Ups

Any and everyone who knows me knows I enjoy doing push ups.  I know that sounds strange but I do.  You know why?  Due to another "P" word, powerful.  It makes me feel powerful.

E is for Effort

One of the things I have learned since working out with groups, personal trainers and coaches is the "E" word - EFFORT.  **Warning**  This post may sound a bit like a rant like one of my other posts about putting down those light weights but if I didn't love you enough to tell the truth then there is no need to having this platform.  I ...

D is for Diet

When I started working out with a trainer in 2008 she constantly told me I should eat clean.  In other words I needed to clean up my diet.  Honestly – I had no idea what she was talking about.  I thought I was eating healthily.  I mean my diet consisted of eating fruit at the bottom yogurt, orange juice not from concentrate and grapes or ...

C is for Cardio

We women tend to lean towards cardio.  Perhaps it is because we are told it burns fat.  Also, if you don't sweat during a workout do you ever feel like you ever really worked out?  I love cardio like the next person so let me share some of my favorite forms of cardio. 1.  Stepmill:  I normally call this machine a BEAST because it will ...

B is for Burpees

Don’t we all find burpees just fantabulous?  I mean the more you do the more you want to do right?  We absolutely love the feeling of your heart about to pound out of your chest while trying to catch your breath.    Of course I’m being facetious but you get my point.  Burpees are my least favorite exercise for oh so many ...
