working out

Next week is Christmas.  Have you done your shopping?  I haven't done much shopping at all.  I should probably get on it.  Just in case you're still searching for the perfect gift or stocking stuffer, I thought I would go ahead and put my list out there.  All the lists out there seem to be [...]

There's nothing wrong with Thanksgiving eating but there is a problem with leftovers.  It's especially hard to be one of those people who HATES to throw food away.  Continuing the Thanksgiving eating for many days after Thanksgiving can be a problem. I woke up yesterday and saw a lot of food in the trash including [...]

My Thanksgiving eating tip

I'm so excited.  I love the holidays because this is the one of two times the family gets together and we have a good time. Of course there is always reason to give thanks and to eat some good food.  It's always hard during the holidays to slow the eating down when you're being tempted [...]

GO HARD – Hug a Runner

Go hug a runner because it's time to Go HARD.  It's Globally Organized Hug A Runner Day!  Last year, I missed out but this year I got in lots of hugs! I told you running makes me want to hug people! These are some of my favorite people but not all. So don't get offended [...]

You may have seen the Muscle and Fitness article about the effects of extreme weight loss on skin.  John David Glaude stripped down to show you what's it like.  The only thing I could think about when I saw it was, "he's pretty brave." His message is correct! He said he's comfortable clothed but not [...]

I'm a firm believer in stretching but I know a lot of people who don't stretch at all. I couldn't imagine running a half marathon and not stretching...or doing a 45 minute spinning class and just walking out. I will admit, I wasn't always a firm believer in stretching but then I noticed I started [...]

I must be honest.  I haven't been very motivated to workout this week.  It's kind of like I've been going through the motions.  There have been some serious highlights but for the most part I've been stuck in the funk.  On Monday, I returned to my workout roots and had a great time.  It was [...]

Go with your heart

Today has been a good day. I wasn't sure what I wanted to blog about today so I almost passed on writing a blog post today...until I had a moment when working out. I went to a cycle class today...and I didn't teach it. And you know what? It felt good. My hamstring is kind [...]

Happy Friday y'all.  I don't know about you but I'm glad it's Friday.  I've been really busy at work so life has been a bit hectic this week.  It hasn't been a bad week at all, but it hasn't been the best week of my life either...it's just a week! Yesterday I did have a [...]

Give group fitness a try.

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I'm still trying to get in the swing of things.  I don't know I just feel off this week.  I haven't been hungry and I've been a little tired.  Maybe it's because it's a million degrees outside.  All I know is, I'm just trying to stay hydrated! When I'm feeling down in [...]
