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 ...

Why Oh Why Runkeeper?

I ran with my Runkeeper last weekend around my neighborhood for a little over 3 miles.  I used both my Runkeeper and Nike+ allowing the music to play through Runkeeper.  I hooked up my Wahoo strap to detect my heart rate and paired it with Runkeeper.  Runkeeper confirmed it was connected and bingo I was set! I stepped outside my house in the ...

January Is The Running Month of Champions!

#Thanksgiving Damage

If you have time to sit back and reflect what type of damage did you do this Thanksgiving?  Did you throw caution into the wind?  Did you just say "2 peas in a bucket.....you know the rest"?  Welp I will admit that these are MY confessions.  I own up to what I do and it doesn't make me a bad person.  Makes me human.   I know what needs ...

Body Weight Interval Training

Just kidding.  I enjoy cardio.  Helps me clear my mind.  Make sure you get out of it what you need.  I enjoy bodyweight workouts because they work the entire body and you don't need a gym or hand weights.  Give it all you got and mind over matter.  Nothing succeeds like success.  Now let's GO and leave a comment telling me how well you ...

Outrun Cancer

My first and last 5K race was the Susan G. Komen race in 2005 I did while employed at Erickson Living.  It was a nice Fall day and I was so invigorated and exhilirated!  I mean I had a real sense of accomplishment PLUS I raised money for a worthy cause.  Fast forward to 2012 (boy how time flies) and I am contemplating signing up and raising ...
