Is it me, or has this week gone kind of fast? Now that I’ve said that though, today will creep by. I’m taking a quick break to get some thoughts down. We FINALLY started following Jamie Eason’s plan. One thing I loved about working with a trainer was that I was able to just get […]
We made it! Yay! Slept in this morning, but today I’m sitting on my trusty ball. Also did an at home ab work out this morning. Not the same as going to the gym itself, but I really need to lay off a little I think. (don’t want to, but need to) My injuries are […]
Cardio vs Lifting … Why the hell do I do both?
If I had my choice between cardio and lifting…… No brainer…. It’s lifting every single time. I really hate cardio. Which seems silly, since I have completed 9 half marathons, a handful of 10K’s and 5K’s and have 9 or 10 more half marathons scheduled and paid for this year already. So why do I do both? […]
The week in recap….
Wow, I can’t believe I went so long between posts! So, I did OK this week staying on track. Food wise, was fine. I skipped a couple mornings at the gym. But you know what? I lost weight. I KNOW that I don’t have to go to the gym as much as I do. I […]
Progress. Forward is good!
Even if we’re taking baby steps….. On Jan 3, Brandon and I took note of my body comp. We did it again this morning. (cries! My last day with him!) Here are my results between Jan 3, 2014 and Feb 26, 2014: Weight: -2 lbs Body Fat: -1.1% Arm: -.5 inches Chest: -.75 inches Waist: -.75 inches Hips: […]
The next 10 ish days
I’ve never lived alone. I really never even had my own bedroom. I’ve always shared with my Sister (thankfully, we are very close and have always gotten along) or have shared with Mark. Ok, maybe for a couple of years when I was 13-15, every other weekend growing up and 2 weeks during summer vacation […]
What a weekend. They sure do go fast! Friday night, we decided to forego the gym. We did go in the morning so it was all good. In fact, Brandon really killed me with a kettlebell workout. I have the bruises to prove it. Yikes! On both arms. I’m such a badass. 🙂 Mark will […]
Unplanned rest days – err…. Mornings…
I am getting over a pretty nasty cold. Well, it’s pretty nasty for me. I just don’t get sick anymore. (Thanks Advocare) I guess I should take some credit for that too actually. A clean diet and lots of exercise means I’m pretty healthy these days. 🙂 But this morning, when my alarm went off […]
Weekend Feb 15 -16 2014
Weekends tend to be tough because I just don’t want to cook! We tend to eat out a lot, but with my recent whip cracking, we aren’t. I was sick this weekend (just a bad cold) so I didn’t make it into the gym either. I also slept in both Saturday and Sunday. So my […]
TGIF! Can’t believe we made it through Hump Day. Phew! 🙂 I was kinda low on calories today but I think it’s fine because I only made it to the gym once. Not gonna stress about it. I am down 1.1 lbs though. WOOT! I do not like to focus on that number, but I will […]
