What a weekend!!! 

If you've been reading this for a bit, you know that I've spent the last 5 months clawing my way back from an injury to run a marathon.  I seriously doubted I could do it during my training, both in the beginning, middle, and even 2 weeks ago.  But I...

Yesterday I got to run a real, live half marathon!  Despite the Covid pandemic, I feel very fortunate to have found actual races to run.  It's funny because the 2 races I planned on this year have both been cancelled, but I found 3 other races to run instead!  Sounds l...

I just bought a whole bunch of resistance bands this week (not the same as the picture above...), and I am SO excited to use them!  I now have enough for everyone who comes to my classes!

It's been a hot minute (ok, this WHOLE YEAR!) since I last posted.  I guess time flies when the world falls apart.....

2020 started out rocky in the first place for me.  I was two weeks into training for the Boston Marathon (the first full week of January) when I tore s...

Welcome December!!!  Twenty more days until the days start to get longer again!!  YAY!

We're hopping into Week 2 of November!  It's crazy that this year is almost over.  Even though the holiday season will be beginning soon, we're still hitting our workouts in the gym.  We were pleasantly surprised to begin the Tuesday/Thursday HIIT workouts and not be t...

How did you like the new protocol of keeping the same weightlifting workouts the same throughout the month?  Did you notice anything?  Did you feel like you could do the routine easier?  Or did it drive you crazy doing the same exercises each time?

I personall...

I am a sugar addict.


I REALLY wish I did not like sugar and sweets, but that is my kryptonite.  

I've always had a sweet tooth, but I didn't always crave chocolate.  As I've gotten older, I now sometimes crave chocolate as well...  So I don't keep those things...

This week was MUCH better than last week!  We were not nearly as sore after our workouts - mild soreness and that was it.  It's amazing how quickly our bodies can adapt!

This week we will stick with the same plan for weight lifting days this week - 4 rounds of...

It's marathon week!!!  In March, I signed up to run the St. George Marathon, just as I was getting back into running after a 10-week injury.  I was loving running and felt strong and confident that I could get back into marathoning and start setting some PR's (personal...
