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!  ...

Well, you have two options, you can hire his extremely expensive fitness trainer Mike Ryan or you can build your own workout program based on advice from Mr. Ryan.  If you are interested in the latter, read on.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Kettlebell and Medicine Ball Workout

If you want to ramp up your workouts then try this amazing medicine ball and kettlebell 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 included a medicine ball and kettlebell. It was challenging but gave me energy.  We did a lot of leg work as you will find and it ...

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 ...

Take a Seat Gym Workout

Try this gym workout to get an amazing burn and to tone your arms and legs. 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 for this gym workout! Told me it is about time I go and get my own weights. She normally picks them up and hands them to ...

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 ...

Get ULTRA RIPPED with the MAN OF STEEL Workout

I was fortunate enough to be invited to the movie premier of Man of Steel before the rest of the world. I was shocked to see how ripped Henry Cavill (Superman) got. After some research I discovered his secret for packing on massive muscle in such a short time. Let me share with you my findings. First, let me state that Henry Cavill worked with ...

How You Doing?

I made it through 3 days of boot camp this week and 1 personal training session with Heather!  Hallelujah!!!!  I did have some foul ups on the diet front but trust me - boot camp yesterday and this morning definitely made me pay for it. Let's check out my workouts for this week so far: Monday Day 1 of boot camp and we were placed in the small ...

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 ...

30 Minutes of Funk #Workout and Week In Review

This week was a very busy week when it came to my workout.  I travelled back from Virginia late Sunday and ran around very early on Monday so Tuesday we got things back to some sort of working order.  Plus my diet over the weekend was HORRIBLE so I had to get back on the grind to work it out which I did. Monday No fitness activity Tuesday I was ...

Too Close #Workout

I may not mind being too close given how cold it is out here on the East Coast but nonetheless I trekked my behind out to the gym in the cold dark night to get it in with trainer extraordinaire Heather Brooke Malone Wolf (phew that is a mouthful).  Anywho this is the latest we did and let me just say she did not take it easy on me!  I was ...

YOLO #Workout

Life is short and You Only Live Once so make it count!   I am one who wants to sleep in when I realize the morning is dark and very cold but I still figure out how to get my butt up and get a work out in because hey.....tomorrow is not promised and consistency is key.  So in between working out at my boot camp I see my personal trainer and ...

Pour It Up #Workout

I woke up this morning dreading going to the gym.  I was tired, it was dark and cold and I had not worked out in a week - GASP!  Gotta keep it real - sometimes when we go on vacation we just do not feel like doing anything other than chilling and hanging out.  Today I found motivation from somewhere or maybe it was the fact I committed ...

You Can’t Handle The Truth #Workout

If I haven't told you this is my second session going to both boot camp and my personal trainer so I still consider myself in Beast Mode up to the holidays.  Boot camp ends December 20, 2012!  He is not taking it easy on us so it is because of that I am hopeful my trainer WILL!  No such luck. I dragged myself to the gym yesterday and was ...
