Under Armour - What's beautiful challenge
Ok so a little late morning on the East Coast but just getting to this now. I had an amazing weekend, my car project is done! So ready to cruise around and for spring and summer to be here officially. Wow, just so relieved with what we took on at once. Dream come true! I helped as much as I could and learned a ton, my dad and husband are awesome! Back to a new workout week. For two weeks...

Garan Fitness Consulting: Lessons from a child. →
Amen. Forever Young. garanfitnessconsulting: I was driving down the road yesterday and saw the greatest thing. A mother going about her business putting things in a car and her daughter standing on the sidewalk nearby. Now, oblivious to all the important things her mother was doing, the little girl was spinning around in circles, and jumping…
Anyone use this or similar? Review?
GNC Pro Sculpt
Did some HIIT over lunch and finished up with 5 extra mins of steady cardio. Before I started I was curious about my upper body abilities as I have had a strange week of random but full-body workouts like plyometrics and cables. Makes it harder for me to judge strength than what I was used to with free weights. Did 6 pull ups without assistance! Felt awesome. Last night I did a killer plyo...
Considering apparel rules some gyms have, you’d think deodorant should be a requirement.
Choosing a Fitness Program →
How do I choose the “right” fitness program? It’s one of the most common questions when deciding to start working toward performance or aesthetic goals. We search, analyze, scrutinize and do our homework trying to find the “perfect” program. It’s a good thing to be thorough and put the time and effort into finding a good plan…until we over-analyze, over-scrutinize and then paralyze ourselves...

I cannot figure out what to substitute in meal plans for sweet potatoes/yams. They are kind of starchy but not like white potatoes, but are they carbs or veggie? Ideas? UPDATE: Pumpkin, winter squash, carrots. In that order of preference close to nutritional value.
Woke up early, weighed myself and saw 128 for the first time since before college. Got my coffee in before the work day began, and got a ton done before lunch. Cleaned the house and did Level Two of Shred It With Weights / Kettlebell / Jillian Michaels over my lunch break. Killer! I had to stop a few times to catch my breath but I love the feeling of heavy weights and cardio combined. I can burn...
Boot Camp Fat-Blaster! →
Today I used some reverse grip ideas I read about in last issue of m&f Hers, during my routine from maybe last spring of theirs. Then tonight I did some crazy creative cardio intervals in the back yard with my gymboss just to get cardio in, after some ab work I just read about that I brought outside. Oksana is amazing. Ok maybe I’m a little obsessed with this magazine but it works for...
So I finally went to purchase jeans for the first time since my progress really began. I’m a bit of a tomboy so having my jeans fit loser hasn’t been a problem for me, until they started to fall down and look really strange even with a belt….LOL So went to American Eagle last night and got a pair of jeans size 2, and a pair of boy fit capris size 0. Freakin 0! That said, I am...
45 minutes left in my work day. Change of plans tonight: gonna pick up a jump rope and take my HIIT outside today! It’s gorgeous and I have all weekend to work on my car. Did my weights over lunch and am ready to shred and then chill with my M&F Hers mag and puppy in the yard.
Coffee, loose ends at work, then lunch time workout! These circuit style workouts are much easier at lunch than after work when it’s so busy, and I want to leave straight after work to work on my car all weekend! Hoping to get the last large chunk done this weekend and finalize things before May.
12 Fitness Tips / Lessons I’ve Learned
Hope this helps anyone starting out with some things I could have used more clarity on! This is my personal experience and opinion. When you hear people tell you that it takes a lot of patience and not to give up, realize it’s true but also realize what exactly that means. That means it could take weeks to see real results. It was hard for me to to learn what “waiting and keep going” actually...
It’s been 6 months since I committed to this lifestyle and I’m so proud. Couldn’t be happier with my life and I know I will continue this. I have made an effort to get a hold of many tools to assist with this and my body has changed a lot in the past half of a year. I will be doing a post of lessons learned this week. As far as my new workout routine I started yesterday,...
Starting a new routine again. 4 weeks doing heavy lifting with low reps and it’s time to mix it up for bikini time! Been offline a few days, well tumblr. Launched the company website last week (http://schoolwires.com if you want to see it!) and then went straight into my huge car projects I’m working on for the spring. Got 50% of the way done with that and will be working on it some...
On my knees in the pew. Great day of rest with family, church and sunshine. Already hitting the work this evening to get this deadline done but that break and refreshment was amazing.
Working, working, working...
Been getting up early to start work early, skipping lunches and working til oh about midnight. The only time I’m forcing into that for myself are workouts. SO ready to launch this website. Although I am very happy with where it’s at and what it’s going to do for our company! Just about done for this part of my day, then hitting the gym before I finish up more tonight and chill...
Killed it at the gym tonight. Heavy on the legs, and HIIT on the bike. Had a lot of energy for the long work day I’m still working on. SUPER busy day tomorrow but time to gear up for it and relax a little tonight. Got my Century Club badge tonight on Foursquare for checking in at my gym 100 times! Of course, I’m the mayor. lol
I don't have anyone to prove wrong.
I just do it.
Back and Abs tonight, and some HIIT. Then back to my Macbook Pro for working on the company website. SO much to do this week, it’s sick. Must get more done before tomorrow begins. It’s a beautiful evening! Enjoy everyone.
