Good morning, good morning, good morning! Happy two-more-days-till-Friday day! Last week I posted a workout review on the Bodypump #95 workout from Les Mills On Demand and I got a pretty nice response. That tells me there are people out there interested in these workouts! For this reason I definitely wanted to share the super ultra challenging workout I did yesterday. It was a Grit workout. Whomever decided on the name Grit is genius because wow. I learned I don’t have much, {Read More}

Hi there, happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! The weekend sure did fly by quickly. We spent over an hour at my eye appointment on Saturday. I ended up picking out two pairs of glasses. I’m a bit nervous about picking them up in a week or so but it’ll be nice to get a break from contacts when I feel like it. It was pretty cold here so pretty much all we did was curl up on {Read More}

How Can I Start Running?

Running is generally something you either love..or hate. I’m actually starting to love it but I used to DESPISE it. I’ve learned that the way I feel after my run is worth the struggle of actually running and I’ve noticed that it does get easier with time. Earlier this month I challenged myself to 21 straight days of running in hopes to make it a habit. Although I missed 4 days out of the 21 days, I am now running {Read More}

I can’t tell you how often I’ve brought up interval training since I started this blog almost 3 years ago. The stuff really works if you’re trying to blast body fat. Studies have even shown that high intensity interval training actually burns more fat than steady cardio. The reason is because during interval training you not only burn calories while you’re doing intervals, but your metabolism remains elevated after your workout which allows your body to continue burning calories at {Read More}

I enjoy doing product reviews on my fitness blog from time to time because I think it’s useful to learn as much as you can about certain products before you buy them – especially with fitness programs. If you haven’t heard of Step 360 before now, that’s because it’s brand new. It’s been on the market for a few months but its infomercials actually just kicked off this past weekend – although I never saw one. Step 360 is a {Read More}

Fit Points used to be done weekly, but they are now going to be monthly. This month’s Fit Point: Everyone envies someone else. People say they don’t, but they do. It’s just human nature to want what you don’t have or have yet to obtain. Who do you envy in the fitness world? Is it a friend, your trainer, a bodybuilder, or a fitness model? There has to be someone. Share you envy and let it out. It may even {Read More}

I don’t know about you but summer workouts just suck. Actually I shouldn’t say the workouts themselves suck, but getting motivated to work out when it’s so warm and humid is a bit tough.

Women’s Chest Workout *Reps: 10, 8, 6 (with the exception of push-ups) Incline Bench Press 1 set x 55#, {Read More}

Finally, a workout! I haven’t worked out in just over a week! The last workout I did was the arm and cardio workouts I did on the 31st of March. I didn’t plan on going a whole week without working out but between sick kids and a birthday party, things got hectic and I think a week off once in awhile is a great thing to do. With all that boring stuff outta the way, today I did a chest {Read More}

Whether the cause of your frumpy butt is from excess body fat, lack of exercise and/or excessive sitting during the day, you don’t have to deal with frumpy butt syndrome forever. There are plenty of things you can do to get your butt noticeably more {Read More}
