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 ...

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 just rolled ...

Balls and Bells #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 was challenging but gave me energy.  We did a lot of leg work as you will find and it was back to back to back.  I burned some decent calories too. I can't complain....the Dominican Republic vacation is coming up 2nd ...

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 could.  I got ...

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 ...

Captain Chair #Workout

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 ...

Monday No fitness activity Tuesday I was ...
