How To Burn More Fat Before, During and After Your Workout

Losing weight is great. Burning fat is even better. The number on the scale gives you a great idea of what is happening in your body, but how do you know whether you have lost more fat than muscle? Everything you do during your workout has some effect on whether you burn fat, muscle, or both. Your ultimate goal is to maximize fat loss, while ...

LoveHate and Week In Review – 10/7 – 10/12

This is the perfect name for this week in review because I was LAZY and did not workout for the majority of the week.  Yeah not good and I could tell I didn't workout.  You know how?  I was crabby.  Crabby feeling and crabby acting to many others this past week - NOT GOOD.  When I workout (lift and run) I am much happier.  It gives me ...

In The Wild and Week In Review – 9/30 – 10/6

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJt7gNi3Nr4 Oh yeah I turned it up this week.  I think I may have done some activity every day this past week.  I worked out with my personal trainer Monday and Wednesday and ran with my Pavement Warriors Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and finally rounded out the weekend with a 5 mile run on Saturday and a 2-mile ...

Feel Good and Week In Review – 9/23 – 9/29

Last week was a doozy full of activity!  I believe I was active every day last week including Saturday and Sunday.  That is a record for me and not necessarily something I want to make a habit.  Between running with my Pavement Warriors, working out with trainer and running races - I burned major calories and got it in on the pavement.  Have ...

Time For Fall and Week In Review – 9/16 – 9/22

Fall is here and it is time to put it in GEAR!!  I did much better this past week than previous weeks with my workouts.  I still did not log as many miles as I would like because I believe I am ready for longer runs but I have excellent company on my runs which makes the shorter runs all worth it.  My running buddies go by many names such as ...

Time For Some Action Week In Review

That was my mantra this week since I am participating in the Femme Fitale Fit Club Fall Fifty Challenge.  I was determined to get out there and rack up some miles because truth be told - the furthest I have ever run EVER in a single session is 6 miles.  Yup, I admit, confess and now share it with the world.  I can sprint short distances all ...

Work It Wednesday Workout

Can you walk and chew gum at the same time?  Are you that coordinated?  If so, then you should be able to handle this workout because it has you doing multiple movements together so you have no choice but to focus and concentrate.  I did arrive a few minutes late (not like me at all) as I was slow moving climbing out of bed but I got in a good ...

Work It Wednesday Workout

Bulgarian, hulgarian...either way we mixed it up and worked it out.  I still can't stand the burn so I took a few breaks but that is ok, I felt myself getting stronger. REMINDER:  Real quick - we do have a new contest this month called the Road ID contest.  Enter to win a free Road ID valued at $35.  There are some folks going for the GOLD so ...

Work It Wednesday Workout

This workout was focused primarily on legs.  Everyone knows my hamstrings are TIGHT.  They stay tight.  Well today, my trainer had me working on my hamstrings which must be the weakest part of my body.  I tried not to throw evil looks as I worked through the lactic acid but I am not sure I accomplished that.  Anywho - this is the workout.  ...

End Of Time and Week In Review

  First I would like to say I hope everyone had a wonderful time at the Beyoncé concert these past few weeks.  All I have been seeing on Facebook and Instagram are amazing photos and glimpses of Beyoncé on stage in concert with her hair blowing throwing down the dance moves.  You guys looked like you had a ball and I hear it is one of ...

Blurred Lines and Week In Review

Maaaaannnnnnnnn this week was CRAY CRAY!  I was really sick on Sunday which boiled over into Monday.  Work was hectic and busy with a major launch and my workouts were sporadic.  I was tired ALL WEEK so obviously I did not do my best to stay fully nourished and to get adequate sleep.  It is necessary to get the appropriate amount of sleep and ...

July 22 Workout Week in Review

I am still doubling up with Sanders Optimum Fitness workouts along with my personal trainer's workouts.  I wish Monte and Heather would talk to each other because this week was tough.  I was sore ALL WEEK.  When I say sore, I am talking about abs and hamstrings.  It took a mile run just to warm up my hamstrings in my boot camp class.  OY!  ...

Come Here #Workout

Woke up at the crack of dawn, dressed in the dark and made my way to Brick Bodies gym in Reisterstown, Maryland.  Walked in and waited about 5 minutes for my trainer.  Honestly - I was praying she was a no-show and I could possibly just go back home and jump in the bed.  No such luck - she finally walks out letting me know someone held her up ...

Fine China #Workout

I felt good today.  I came entered the gym with energy, had about 24 oz of water to drink before we started and felt "strong".  Granted I just drove 8 hours from South Carolina the day before on an EMPTY STOMACH but still had a chance to take a nap, wake up in my own time and move at my own pace.  There is something to be said for getting a ...
