How To Stay Motivated
I remember first committing to a more regular workout routine. I was excited and felt I could take on the world! Even though I was not at my physical peak I felt STRONG! I engulfed myself into fitness by subscribing to magazines and IN MY HEAD seeing and doing the exercises. And then after about a month or so...the feeling wanes and I ...
Make Me Stronger Workout
This morning I woke up and felt good. Had good energy and sipped on water prior to this workout. It is intense because my trainer incorporated a bunch of trisets and combinations that kept the body working and guessing. On my way home I passed my husband on the way to the gym - he thought he would still catch me there to "smoke me" as he ...

Fitness Idol – Erin Stern
Erin Stern is absolutely AMAZING! I first came across her while reading several of the fitness magazines I subscribe to. What I admire about her is her athleticism, competitiveness and physique. She has been on too many covers and fitness contests to count.
Check her out.
Homemade Stir Fry
In support of this week's Femme Fitale challenge I made a stir fry meal for myself and family. Stir fries are great because they are quick, easy and delicious. I bought the veggie precut at Wegmans (I love that grocery store) and added my own protein (chicken breast cut in 1-inch pieces) and sauce (low sodium of course) and voila...a filling ...
Exercising While on Vacation
When people think of vacation they think of the great outdoors, exotic location, big adventures, rest, and relaxation. I know I do. Last year my hubby and I went on a cruise and I brought my running gear and was very proud of myself. I actually worked out on the treadmill for 30 minutes a day.
This year we are planning our next vacation ...

NCR Trail Aftermath
Earlier today I posted I was headed out to the trail with another Femme Fitale. We ended arriving there around 8:15 am and the trail was already packed with bikes, children, seniors, race runners and a couple who were bouncing around on a strange looking bouncy shoe. I'll post a photo below...anyone ever seen these things? Looked really ...
Watermelon Sunrise Juice Recipe
[Tweet "Drink this Watermelon Sunrise Juice Recipe first thing in the morning. It will get you going. #juicing #juicerecipe"]
Who wouldn't want to wake up to this sunrise goodness? Yes another refreshing juice coming at you from Femme Fitale. We stay FIERCE......FIRM.....FABULOUS!
Every Saturday the ladies of Femme Fitale get together in either a small or large group to walk and run outdoors. We normally do it early in the morning to get it out of the way, it is quiet and much cooler than if we waited later in the day.
Today.....me and one Fittie will be headed to the NCR Trail which is a beautiful and lovely trail near ...
See what had happened was.....I woke up tired and lacked motivation - but when in anyways to get this thing out the way. Left feeling on FIRE with loads of energy! The saying is true - you never regret completing your workout!

Workouts and Hair
I know many women get their hair professionally styled on a regular basis which typically costs a GRIP! No one wants to sweat out that costly hairstyle with a high intensity workout so we have a conundrum.....the workout or the hair. Lots of times the hair wins!
I do not get my hair professionally done on a regular basis outside of a ...
How Bad Do You Want It Workout
This workout session was a very intense yet exhilirating one. We went nonstop in a major superset with a lot of exercises and then just repeated. I am feeling it now in my glutes! Try it and tell me how you feel afterwards.
