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 ...

How Many Drinks #Workout

Aaaaand I was back in there on Friday to turn it up and turn it loose.  I walk in and I am just as chill as I wanna be.  I was feeling good.  Not anticipating the discomfort from the workout.  I came in, stretched and sat down on the bench.  Then we got it started and I didn't think about it - I just kept moving as best I could.  I got ...

Take a Seat #Workout

YAY today was leg day ----- NOT!  I couldn't catch a break with Heather my personal trainer today.  First she had me picking up my own weights!  Told me it is about time I go and get my own weights.  She normally picks them up and hands them to me.  Then she had me walk lunging all over kingdom come and THEN she had me sit on the wall for ...

Ouch #Workout

There is something to be said for the term "No Pain No Gain".  I don't want to think of it like pain but rather soreness.  Pain means the body is in some sense of danger or distress.  Being sore to me just means I pushed it and now the body needs to rebuild.  Welp my workout last Tuesday had me so sore it was ridiculous!  She spared no ...

Captain Chair #Workout

Folks, I am back in the gym with my personal trainer Heather Brooke Malone Wolf.  It was on today!!!  Have you ever looked at yourself and felt you could look better?  I know push the negatives aside and focus on the positives.  I am sore so that IS a positive!  A good sore of course.  You know trainers can help you push you through your ...

Shoulda Let You Go #Workout and Week In Review

I guess you have figured it out by now I am naming workouts after songs that I have felt the need to use as my power songs for that week.  I am not really hip to all of the latest R&B music out there because I basically listen to CNN in the car, but when I do get an opportunity to hear a new song with a LIVE beat - I find out what it is and ...

Leggo #Workout and Week In Review

I'mma be honest - this week was a wee bit slow.  I only worked out 3 days this week!  EEK can't remember the last time I did that but this is NOW the most recent time.  I remember in the beginning of my workout journey I was aiming to work out 5 days a week at least and NOW I can't imagine working out less than 5 days a week.  My how times ...

30 Minutes of Funk #Workout and Week In Review

This week was a very busy week when it came to my workout.  I travelled back from Virginia late Sunday and ran around very early on Monday so Tuesday we got things back to some sort of working order.  Plus my diet over the weekend was HORRIBLE so I had to get back on the grind to work it out which I did. Monday No fitness activity Tuesday I was ...
