Today was my second day back with my personal trainer Heather and it felt good. The gym was a little muggy and humid but other than that I think I am quickly getting back into the groove of things. You see last month I traded working out with weights twice a week for boot camp which is rigorous workout with a bunch of cardio that helps to ...

I am sitting out of the Sanders Optimum Fitness Boot Camp today because I have been desiring a little rest and balance in the mornings. With that said I started going back to my personal trainer at Brick Bodies - Heather and it was like I never left. We worked it today and she worked ME!

I must admit this is one of the most RATCHET songs I have ever heard. I also discovered my husband downloaded it on iTunes! Regardless of how off the hook it is sometimes we just need to get RAW because it helps us through those tough workouts or long arduous runs. Well I had to name this workout after this song because it was a tough one ...
When You Say You Are In Beast Mode You Betta Mean It
Beast mode is a term that should not be thrown around lightly. There is a lot of responsibility that comes with that term. I am finding OUT! I committed to boot camp 3 days a week which comes with 3 days worth of online workouts and working with my trainer 2 days a week. Going back to back M-F and Saturday is SERIOUS BUSINESS!
I made it ...

Ten months ago we brought in the new year and now I look up and BLAM it is October and my ten-year wedding anniversary.

I always have my husband's back and ...

Back To Work #Workout
In August I participated in a great boot camp and today was my first day back in the gym with my personal trainer. It felt good to be back in the house! And they made some renovations too by changing up the floors from carpet. Looked - interesting. But I digress....this was our workout today. She went up on my hand weights by 5 lbs to ...

Cable Me Workout
I like this workout because it doesn't require you to be all over the gym. Basically you are using one piece of equipment to work various body parts so you can get in and get out.

Last year I worked out with my trainer first thing in the morning. It helped keep me motivated and not feel guilty when I hung out and ate at the cookout before the fireworks! Keep pushing and don't let up.

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 ...

I recently started running the neighborhood with one of my neighbors. The entire run is 3.65 miles and includes hills with varying grades. The first hill is extremely STEEP! Anywho we both workout with trainers on Tuesday and Thursday and decided to run together on Wednesdays and Fridays. Well she texted (sp?) me last night wanting to know ...
