#FitnessFriday – Move Something

This week was a fabulous week for my workouts.  On Saturday (which is technically last week) I ran the the 5K in the Baltimore Running Festival. [Tweet "Checkout my progress this #FitnessFriday and read how I put in work. #exercise #workout #fitfam"] On Monday, October 20th we kicked off our second installation of the DietBet challenge ...

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

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!  ...

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 ...
