Remember that exercise minutes don't just burn calories, they help regulate your cortisol (stress hormone) - an additional health benefit that you can see immediately (in terms of emotions) and long-term (cardiovascular and brain health). (1 comments) From Black Elk Speaks - something to look forward to when I might not feel like getting out of bed early in the morning ✌🏼️ Today's Fitbit! I was at 19750 when I was ready for bed, but did a couple little chores to get me to a nice round number.

(1 comments) Phew....I am beat (1 comments) Post workout snack - have a physically demanding workday ahead of me (1 comments) Today's Fitbit Today's Fitbit Oatmeal and berries for breakfast...eating in front of the AC! Today's Fitbit! I miss TurboKick so much...and I don't have time to do a full hour of it after I lift even if it was available. So I took my favorite moves from the Turbo sections (jumps, jacks, etc) and made them a 20-min workout (45 sec on/25 sec rest). I have been doing it for about a month and it is great! (1 comments) My first venture into the world of protein shakes...gold standard strawberry powder from GNC. It actually wasn't bad!

Lotsa running around lol Today's Fitbit...took a gym selfie but it is extremely blurry :( will try again on Thursday! Getting back up to speed with rowing (my warmup before lifting)...I hadn't been using my legs enough for some reason but now my watts are almost back to where they were before I moved. :) Today's Fitbit My pre-run snack....tart cherry juice (anti inflammatory!) mixed with crystal light lemonade. Lotsa walkin today! Today's Fitbit. Highlight of my day: I replaced my windshield wiper blades, all by myself. πŸ’ͺ🏻 Got my steps in Working my way back on the rowing machine Today's Fitbit...had to drive home from work because I didn't take my umbrella and it was raining/thunderstorm. Took me freakin 30 min to drive two miles...hmmm exactly as long as it takes me to walk. 😞 Personal bests on the leg extension (70 lbs) and abduction (125 lbs) today! And followed up with my mini turbo workout. Tomorrow's forecast is that I'm gonna be crawling! Lol Today's Fitbit (2 comments) Update from yesterday: I'm just gonna have some ibuprofen and lemonade and lay here for a bit k? Cool enough to wear my jacket to the aquarium! :) (1 comments) Oatmeal with chia and pomegranate seeds, aronia berries, and apples for breakfast Reaaaaally didn't feel like doing this; did it anyway. (2 comments) Artist's depiction of me at the moment Today's Fitbit Today's Fitbit (2 comments) Not as long as I usually run, but 100% better than the 0-minute run I felt like doing!! (1 comments) So apparently this is where we are going for lunch today...I guess the way to go is get a 4-oz burger and maybe small fries? Or turkey burger? Any suggestions would be appreciated... (4 comments) Today's Fitbit...TGIF! Kung Pao shrimp - my Saturday treat! (1 comments) Word to the wise: be careful doing this exercise around your cat! πŸ˜‚ Hit my step goal! Hit yesterday's step goal 🚢🏻 Really didn't feel like doing my interval thing; did it anyway. πŸ’ͺ🏻 Today's Fitbit...didn't think I was going to make it the whole walk home from work but I did and now I can rest. Tonight's snack while I wait for my fish and rice to cook...jicama sticks with lime juice and chili pepper! (3 comments) Another day is in the books! Feels so good to rest 35 minutes longer than I felt like running, but I got it done (1 comments) From yesterday - again I didn't feel like doing it but I did it anyway and it felt great. Got my steps in for today ... Now cuddled up with tea and the cat! (1 comments) Another day of not wanting to do it, but getting it done anyway. Plus a little attitude boost from Kreayshawn ("Gucci Gucci") during the cool-down. Survived another day. Another one in the books...I added lots more punches and kicks instead of just jumps, burpees etc Done for today (2 comments) Basically the only good part of my day. Fitbit crapped out on my yesterday. Then I went to pick up a new one and Let it Go, which makes me cry on the best of days, was playing. I had a minor meltdown in the fitness aisle of Target. Lots and lots of crying and panic attacks. Dear god please let this week be better. (2 comments) When I get discouraged I have to remind myself of how far I have come. A couple years ago I could not do this simple stretch; I had to work up to being able to hug my knee to my chest. I had to stop thinking of what I used to be able to do as a competitive athlete, and start from the beginning. Just something to keep in mind when I am struggling as I am now. (7 comments) Today's Fitbit (2 comments) Breakfast: oatmeal with aronia berries, chia seeds, and an apple. Fuel for my workout and the challenging day I have planned at work. Today's Fitbit...plus I spent most of my day at work on my feet. It feels so good to crawl into bed. From a card one of my running mentors gave me the day before a race. Today's Fitbit. So tired. My anxiety is getting out of control. At least I made it through my run this morning without having a panic attack. (5 comments) Today's Fitbit plus I got in my improvised kickboxing thing. So even though I stress ate today I did do something good for myself. This one is for @callmesallyg 😁 (1 comments) Got my license! And I think it shows I have slimmed down since I renewed it in PA. (5 comments) Today's Fitbit, helped by walking around the convention center and wandering around looking for a place to pick up ibuprofen... πŸ’ŠπŸ’ŠπŸ’Š Today's Fitbit...so tired (2 comments) Rest later I guess...so beat Snack and caffeine because my train is late and I am sooooo dragging today Today's Fitbit. I am not tired enough...anxiety too high. Ugh. Today's Fitbit. Conference over - I'm exhausted Today's Fitbit... Back to regular schedule tomorrow. Then the weekend. Thank goodness. Back to my regular workout and eating today...so ready for the weekend My new favorite jeans! Not scratchy at all and buy one/get one half-off. Got my steps in today but a lot of resting too!

Ancient grains salad at Panera for lunch (1 comments) Today's Fitbit (3 comments) Today's Fitbit It was BOGO day at subway! I managed to save my free sub for dinner tomorrow - it will taste good heated in the toaster oven. Almost forgot to take a photo of the sandwich! Lol Today's Fitbit Racked up the steps running around at work after the power mysteriously shut off...up and down the stairs like a (panicked) champ. (1 comments) Got it done today after an eventful day and late night at work yesterday. πŸ’ͺ🏼 (1 comments) Today's Fitbit - my steps boosted by walking to/from train stations Today's Fitbit (5 comments) Today's Fitbit Today's Fitbit - hit my goal even though I got a ride home after work dinner PR on the adductor today, and followed up with an awesome stretch Curry fish and rice ☺️ (2 comments) Today's Fitbit... Worked out and got my nails done -feeling almost human again after an awful weekend at work. Today's Fitbit. My walk home from work was in the rain, which felt kind of nice since I didn't have much to carry/worry about getting wet. Yes! I can touch the floor with the palm of my hand without bending my knees! (Don't know why this was important to me but I haven't been able to do it since freshman year of high school.) (15 comments) Today's Fitbit (4 comments) Today's Fitbit ... I considered driving or taking the train home because I didn't bring a hat (it got a lot colder morning to evening) but in the end I walked. It wasn't too bad! (4 comments) Oh lord (4 comments) Gym selfie post-mini turbo workout Today's Fitbit...helped out by a walk across campus to renew my ID. Today's Fitbit - hit my step goal and did some laundry No no no no no. (6 comments) Worth the splurge ($20/box). (2 comments) Today's Fitbit (3 comments) Moved up to 2-lb hand weighs during my mini turbo workout! My gym bag actually didn't feel that much heavier than with the 1-lb weights. It felt great! πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ’ͺ🏼 (1 comments) My friend and TurboKick instructor from penn state hooked me up with my favorite finale track! 🎢 this is your last chance, it's time to dance! 🎢 (3 comments) Today's Fitbit!

(2 comments) Today's Fitbit (1 comments) #workoutwednesday Today's Fitbit (3 comments) I had to get up an hour earlier than usual to get my workout in before work, and I really wasn't feeling it when I started, but I got it done. #fitnessfriday (2 comments) Back at it after a very sedentary weekend...did some spinning to mix things up a bit. At least I do this right I made it thru another day. Today's Fitbit + stretching out after Turbo. It felt great! (6 comments) Today's Fitbit - I took the train to/from work because I was carrying extra stuff, so a little less active than usual. Feel like this number should be higher since I spent most of the day scrubbing my apartment from floor to ceiling but ok.... Apartment is clean and I'm cleaned up and ready for my guests!! I can't wait, only a few more hours. (3 comments) Today's Fitbit - walked around town with my mom! Didn't really feel like workin out this morning, but I did anyway. I didn't sleep very well last night so I gave myself permission to skip my workout and sleep instead, but by the time I switched the alarm on my phone I was wide awake. I figured I might as well just get up and get it done. Homeward bound for Christmas! Lol. I took this somewhere in eastern OH while I was messing with my phone to prevent myself from boredom eating. We made it safely to my parents' place and it is time to rest! (2 comments) Getting ready to do errands with my mom, cousin, and aunt! (2 comments) My view from my Christmas Eve run. It was 65! Looking out over the Susquehanna River from about halfway up the mountain where my folks live. I missed it so much!!! Lunch: homemade pulled pork and coleslaw! Today's Fitbit: I got my steps in with a short run and many many trips up and down the stairs helping to wrap presents! The views from my run this morning - so foggy! Merry Christmas! (1 comments) Glamorous me in my festive shirt and...sweatpants lol. Poured diet cherry Coke on my jeans yesterday so I am waiting till right before company gets here to put my nice jeans on today! (7 comments) Today's Fitbit Lunch at red robin - Bonzai salad! Took the train to see my grad school buddy - so good to see friends again. Holding my friend's pet bunny! 😘🐰! (1 comments) Coffee with Mr Cat! (2 comments) More bansai salad! My mom got this container for me for my lunches (2 comments) New Years dinner with my parents...they're going home tomorrow. :( Not quite why I had in mind for my post-lifting cardio, but better than nothing. Once again I spent my workout and shower crying. (3 comments) Yesterday's Fitbit (3 comments) Back to kickboxing plus plank this morning. Trying to keep the positive vibes alive now that I'm at work. Today's Fitbit. (4 comments) Another morning on the stair master Today's Fitbit. (2 comments) Not as good this morning :( (2 comments) Today's Fitbit - lots of steps even though I took the train to and from work instead of walking (2 comments) Lunch is curried rice and pasta with shredded pork - comfort food I went for a run in the snow this afternoon (4 comments) Not at already for Monday, especially when I have to be at work an hour early. Maybe I would resent it less if I got comp time, but nah. (4 comments) Elliptical this morning Yesterday's steps. I am trying out taking the train instead of walking to work every single day, especially when I have to carry my personal laptop. Dinner. Burnt my fingers heating it up. My awesome week continues. I walked home instead of taking the train because I didn't want to wait around in the cold station. Can't walk with my balaclava up because my glasses fog up. I hate this place so much. (1 comments) Back to mini turbo workouts instead of spinning or elliptical or stairmaster. Finally home after a long, frustrating day at work. At least my workout was good. Yesterday's Fitbit - low because I took the train. 😞 Today's Fitbit For AnnaSony - hope this helps with your motivation! (1 comments) Today's Fitbit Got my steps in running around at work and doing laundry today (2 comments) The few steps I did get in today were staggering to the grocery store and nail place in single digit temperatures. Gee I miss my freakin apartment with the elliptical trainer, now I'm trapped here in this πŸ’© weather and can't work out inside. Hooray for moving up in the πŸ’©world. (2 comments) Today was better. I woke up at 1AM panicking/crying/dreading the day, managed to doze off and on until 3:30 by repeating to myself "it's not so bad...not so bad...not so bad" over and over. Trying to remember that last year I walked to work when it was -12 outside. Trying not to feel sorry for myself or desperate. (4 comments) Trying to start off the morning with something POSITIVE...this (and the humidifiers) are saving my skin this winter. (2 comments) Today's abs and Fitbit...I did a round of TurboKick plus 15 minutes of plank (15 sec on/15 sec off). I gave up doing the modified plank because it hurt my shoulders, and NOT in a good way, without seeming to benefit my core much. For Fitbit...walking fast in the cold sure does boost the active minutes!!! Lunch today - Greek salad at Panera (3 comments) Did my workout even though I had to scale down the intensity a little during my mini turbo...felt very weird this morning. Maybe it is the weather. But the important thing is I exercised to the max intensity that my body could handle at the moment. Today's Fitbit Yesterday's gym selfie Feeling weak again, got it done anyway. At least I felt better than on Wednesday. (2 comments) Today's Fitbit (2 comments) Back home after a panic attack on the train because I thought I lost my Fitbit, followed by tearfully retracing my steps from the train station home, only to find it was still clipped to my bra but had slid around the back. The delightful irony is that the errand (which I didn't complete) is something that can easily wait till tomorrow, I only went out so that I could get more steps in. (7 comments) Today Fitbit Chicken Caesar salad at Panera for lunch after work (1 comments) I made my first homemade scrub: sugar, coconut oil, and vitamin e oil. (2 comments) Tomato soup, peanut butter toast, and lemonade for dinner. Comfort food. Today's Fitbit...getting ready for bed. Back to work tomorrow after having a whole half-day off today. Got it done today. I took the train home tho instead of walking. I did this (45 sec on/15 sec on for 15 min) after TurboKick this morning. OH MY ARMS!!! (2 comments) Today's Fitbit (3 comments) Had to get up at 2:45 AM to do it, but I got it done. Did my whole TurboKick workout from memory today after I forgot to bring my cue cards. Because nothing can #%^^%}{ stop me. (3 comments) Today's Fitbit (2 comments) Worked out with my glasses barely hanging onto the edge of my nose until I got to mini turbo and pulled my calf mid-jump at which point I actually collapsed on the floor and it took me 10 min to hobble across the gym to the locker room bawling all the way and an older woman offered to drive me home but instead I hobbled to the shower and to work. what a dreadful week. I wouldn't be surprised if I managed to spontaneously combust in the middle of the night. Today's Fitbit. So disappointed. I really hope that my calf is fine by Monday. 😰 My eyes are pretty clear and have barely hurt at all today. (2 comments) Yesterday's and today's Fitbit. I did it and my calf barely hurt. (At least the day didn't start out bad.) This is my new obliques exercise, feels really good. I modified it so that both my feet are on the floor, though, because I don't have anything that solid to put my stationary foot on. Legs almost back to normal (1 comments) Got it done today at the gym even though I felt shaky and weak for a few minutes in the middle of kickboxing. I stuck it out though and finished strong. (3 comments) Today's Fitbit (2 comments) My leg is almost back to normal today (1 comments) Today's Fitbit. (3 comments) Ready for the super bowl! Yesterday's and today's Fitbit (2 comments) Back to work and the gym Forgot my 2-lb hand weights, so I did TurboKick with 2.5-lb dumbells instead. Yesterday's Fitbit (2 comments) Used 3.5-lb hand weights during my mini turbo today. πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼 Today's Fitbit Weekend Fitbit Today (2 comments) Feeling kind of awful but I got in my workout and steps anyway. Early to bed tonight; maybe I'll wake up good as new tomorrow. (1 comments) Went a little light on my workout this morning but still got plenty of steps in. I'm feeling much much better. Weekend for its. I spent most of Saturday sleeping. Today. Today Yesterday. I powered thru my workout even though my phone was on the fritz and kept stopping and starting my music. Now I have a new phone (thank goodness the old one was still under warranty). Brunch...PB&J with hot peppers. So happy to be sleeping in this morning. (4 comments) Today. Replaced battery and now my Fitbit won't stop tracking from yesterday. Not fair and now j am late for the gym. Stupid me to think I could get thru a morning without crying (3 comments) Today. Fitbit functional again. (1 comments) Today Today. I didn't feel like doing the HIIT workout but i got it done anyway. (2 comments) Today. (3 comments) Today (3 comments) Today. For the mini turbo workout instead of doing kicks and punches intervals I replaced them with wind sprints. This is a screencap of the Interval Timer setup/options for Juddll and others who have asked about the app. I see you can do a complex routine but I haven't tried that yet! Lol (1 comments) After months of inner thigh tightness (I think I pulled a muscle maybe and since then it has been very tight), I started doing this stretch. It has only been a couple days and already I feel much better! (2 comments) Sometimes all it takes is one fearless person to push others to stand up for themselves and their ideas. Why not me? Today. I started new punch section and finale in Turbo. Today. Wonderfully sore. The weekend. At least I walked to and from my nail appointment and the grocery store yesterday. The few steps I got in today were from staggering up and down the stairs with my laundry. I am so exhausted and the week hasn't even started. (3 comments) Yesterday Today. I walked to and from work even though the wind is crazy. It sounds like someone is trying to break in thru my windows, it is so strong! (5 comments) Green! (3 comments) Today (4 comments) Added these exercises to my weight lifting day. Not sure I will be able to get out of bed tomorrow morning. (2 comments) Today. I was going to take the train home from work but I needed to clear my head! The walk did me good. Today - I went for a run. So sore from yesterday! (6 comments) Today. I'm too tired to walk the steps left to make it a round number total lol. Today. My abs are aching! (2 comments) Yesterday. I feel like I am making progress because on some of the sprinting intervals I can make it back and forth across the studio four whole times instead of just three and a half. Today. So proud of myself for hanging in there for my whole workout despite probably being a little dehydrated from a "stomach issue" this morning. Really though I know that if I have made it out of bed at 3:45 and to the gym by 5:30 I'm gonna make it worth it. Today. This afternoon I came across a selfie I took when I had hives. I have come so far since then - so lucky to be done with them and I can see the difference that taking care of myself has made. I will try to post it later with some censoring! (1 comments) This weekend. I decided to make my weekend step goal 6000 steps per day. I know it is low but it is better than nothing and right now that's all I need. (3 comments) Today (2 comments) Today. I walked home from work instead of taking the train. I figure even if I do go over my daily calorie goal, any cutting back on eating or adding extra exercise has to help, right? (2 comments) Today. (2 comments) Today! My first time having 30k steps. (7 comments) Today. Trying to get back on track after a rough weekend. (2 comments) Today. Today. Had to be at work an hour early, so I was at the gym an hour early. Not going to give up my workout, it's that simple! Baby, break a sweat! (4 comments) This exercise is surprisingly hard/satisfying! (2 comments) Today. I added some box jumps to my HIIT routine...may not be able to walk tomorrow. I also tried a new low back exercise because sometimes I feel like I have trouble working those muscles effectively - it felt great. (4 comments) Yummmmm Sunday night again (2 comments) Today. As disappointed as I was to wake up from my dreams and realize that I was still here in this job, I put my game face on and got it done. At least my workouts are the one bright spot in my day. (1 comments) Today (2 comments) Super sweaty as usual. πŸ˜… Now there are three of my fellow gym-goers who have told me something along the lines of "I noticed you working out and your workout is really intense." Motivation! (7 comments) Today. I added some box jumps (well, using the step) to my HIIT to make sure that I am really challenging myself to jump high! (2 comments) As coworker returns from her 3.5-week vacation today, this is my motto. I am not going to let her get to me. I am not going to give her my energy because I need it to do MY job. (2 comments) Today. I started doing a new kicks section...I'm changing my turbokick one section at a time over the span of a couple weeks instead of taking on a new round all at once. That way I learn gradually and keep myself from getting discouraged. (2 comments) My mom's cat died this afternoon. My little girl. She was fine in the morning but had a blood clot in the afternoon; she went to a trauma center and got oxygen but there was too much damage; she couldn't move her legs. 😰😰😰😰😰😰😰😰😰😰πŸ

Rough morning. (3 comments) Today. Had to be at work by seven so I got up an hour early and did abs at home so I could be at the gym as soon as it opened at 4:30 and still have a little time cushion. I don't care how early it is, I need my AM workout to get my head on straight before work. (2 comments) Today. Back to my regular gym time - so nice that it is light outside so early in the AM now - I don't walk the whole way there in the dark!
