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!  ...

All I Do Is Win

Honestly - that is not true.  I do not always win or am number one in everything I do.  Sometimes I stop trying or I come in dead last.  But either way when it comes to this fitness thing I do not always feel as if I have to "win" against someone.  I typically compete with myself.  I test myself to see how far I can push a weight or how ...

Homemade Protein Hair Mask

I just returned from the Dominican Republic and had a ball!!!  We spent good times by the pool, on the beach, walking along the beach and playing in the water.  I totally enjoyed myself.  Unfortunately, with all of the sun time I had my skin reacted a bit and I returned home with parched, dry hair.  I used Silicon Mix almost daily while ...

It’s been three months, you’ve been hitting the gym routinely and you can’t see or feel any difference in your physique. So what you do is search the internet for some magical new workout routine that will help break this plateau; some possible workout secret that’s been posted to a blog that has somehow eluded you all these years. Stop ...

Going In A New Direction

Have you ever felt worried when you have decided to try a new running route?  Wonder if you will make it, or tucker out halfway through?  That's how I feel as I map a new route on MapMyRun based on a suggestion of one of our running partners.  I have fun 5 miles before and even found a familiar route to run but this is a NEW one.  With new ...

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 ...
