My New Normal

I have been working out regularly since 2008.  I started working out regularly again then because I went out with some friends, one of whom I hadn't seen for a year, and she looked FANTASTIC.  Small waist, petite physique ... all that.  I wanted to learn how she got that way.  I found out she had been working with a personal trainer.  I knew ...

Bootcamp Season #2 Session 12

Thursday - SUCCESS DAY! Yes folks!  I finally completed the minute drill within the MINUTE LIMIT!!!  What is a minute drill you ask?  It is a sprint drill where you run between 2 baselines 15 times all within a minute.  They tell you, if you haven't hit at least the 7th drill by 30 seconds you are going to struggle to make all 15 within the ...

Bootcamp Season #2 Sessions 8&9

Wednesday What I gained in those 2 days off this week I expended in energy at boot camp on Wednesday and Thursday!  Those two days were no joke.  But I was determined. I went to bed late but was determined to get at least 6 hours of sleep.  Did not happen.   I got up anyway.  My regular partner in crime stayed in bed and skipped this ...

Bootcamp Season #2 Session 7

Hi everybody!!!  I hope everyone had a productive and ACTIVE weekend!  I know I did.  I actually did the online workout prescribed by the SOF boot camp and did pretty good.  It included 10, 10M sprints which I did on the treadmill at 9 mph.  Clearly I need to amp that up to 10 mph because my sprints this morning were still short.  But I am ...

Bootcamp Season #2 Session 4&6

Much like the hurricane - this week is a BLUR with stiff bodies left in its wake.  I did not attend the MOnday morning session even though they still held it at 5:30 am because I just did not want to risk it.  I felt I could work out at home - which I did not.  Tuesday I ran for 35 minutes with sprint drills and did 100 squats due to an online ...

FFFC #Challenge #23: Log your meals

Have you ever thought about your nutrition as you begin to pick up your daily fitness activity?  Have you hit a plateau and wonder why you can not seem to break through even though you are going to 80 fitness classes a day and sweating profusely?  Maybe it is time to look at what you are eating.  The fitness gurus state that 80% of your ...

Bootcamp Season #2 Session 3

I'm feeling good.  Third day into my second session of the Sanders Optimum Fitness bootcamp and I can't complain.  I still got it.  At least to some extent.  We typically use Thursdays to focus on toning.  That is important for weight loss and strong bones - especially for those of us in our ahem...40's! He started us off with 7 laps around ...
