Sanders Optimum Boot Camp (Day 11)

I'm sad.  Tomorrow is the last day of this session for boot camp.  Over the past 4 weeks I feel myself getting stronger.  I mean I am stronger and faster.  Who knew what a difference a month could make.  And guess what you guys?  Because of the need to have the energy for the workouts, I stopped drinking glasses of wine during the week.  ...

Sanders Optimum Boot Camp (Day 9)

It's Thursday morning, dark outside and the summer breeze is going.  I pick up my neighbor and we head on over to the gymnasium.  We get inside, stretch and are blessed with only 5 laps around the gym.  And then IT IS ON!  We start with variations of the ladders which had me struggling on day one.  I was so uncoordinated.  But TODAY? ...

Sanders Optimum Boot Camp (Day 8)

Alright y'all.  I felt GOOD today.  I mean I felt ON this morning at 5:30 am.  Perhaps it was the 7 hours of sleep.  Maybe it was water I drank beforehand.  Most likely it was the dinner I ate the night before.  Whatever it was I was ready.   Now I am not saying I was pleased with the 1 mile jog warm up under 7.5 minutes!  Or saying I was ...

Sanders Optimum Boot Camp (Day 7)

It wasn't a good day y'all.  I mean the workout was good.  Monte did what he was supposed to do but the morning started off rocky.  For one, I did not get a good night's sleep after going to bed after 11 pm because someone next to me was sawing logs.  I mean it woke me up in the middle of the night to the point I had to sleep with the pillow ...

Sanders Optimum Boot Camp (Day 6)

  I feel good!  Made it through the second of four weeks of this boot camp!  I will admit, I felt much better today than I did yesterday.  Today I arrived and had a chance to stretch before he put us to work.  We warmed up with a mile jog he wanted us to complete UNDER 9 minutes.  Then he had us do 100 jumping jacks. After that warm ...

Run For Your Life

Submitted by: Low Carb Tiki So you want to start running but you don’t know where to begin. It’s easier than you think.  Some people think they can’t start running because of various health issues but it’s not true. For a number of diseases running can help reduce the impact or reverse the condition. I know a number of people who were ...

Discipline Makes Champions

Submitted by: Christian Working out is vital to one’s health. We all should strive to be the best we can possible be. Working out has to be important to you for you to make it a priority.

Two Can Play This Game

I had every reason to believe that no running was going down for me...but the first morning I was there I woke up with no alarm clock and had running on my brain! I sat on my ...

Anxiety And Myths, What Is Holding You Back?

Submitted by: Tim Joseph The following is what I have learned from years of trying to accomplish my own fitness goals. I know a lot of out of shape people who wish they could get themselves in good shape.  For every person that says "I want to look good in a bathing suit" there are a thousand excuses as to why they cannot get themselves off ...

Time for a Rock & Roll Encore

Submitted by: Ramona I'm doing it again! That's right...training for another half marathon! The timing is right, too. My weight loss efforts have been at a standstill for about 2 months and I've even gained weight! Boooo!!! So I'm hoping the extra miles I'll be getting in weekly will turn things around. I have a goal to lose 20 lbs. At first I ...

These Shoes Were Made For….

Submitted by: Ramona It's my second training run and it actually went really well! 4 miles today and I felt strong afterwards. So strong that I decided to take a Zumba class after my run. You see...while I was on a little "run-cation" I really got into other forms of exercise. I was getting my cross train ON! ;-) Zumba, by far, turned out to be ...

Hey - at least I am honest.  Plan to participate in an ab challenge this month with Strong Like Susan.  Stay tuned as I post my progress and gulp~measurements! [slideshow]

Weight loss stall

I believe that when taking on a new routine, you follow through on the commitment, and then assess the results after a special period of time.  I have been working with my trainer twice a week (give or take skipping some weeks due to other commitments) since April 2011. I step on the scale and it hasn't moved.  I weigh almost the same now as ...
