Building the Perfect Butt! My new Glutes & Hamstring Workout

Monday, April 14, 2014



During the earlier days of my fitness journey, I would frequently think to myself, ‘I just want to run until my butt falls off.’ So I did, and it turns out that it wasn’t really what I wanted at all. So now I am working to build it back just the way I want it.

While my glutes get some action during cardio sessions, plyometric exercises, and other strength or circuit training workouts, I’ve been dedicating one or two days each week to focusing on that area specifically.

Check out the full workout here:

It has been hard work, and is taking lots of focus. But it is getting much easier as I see my abs emerging :)

I have my full meal plan and workouts on my blog if anyone wants to check it out and follow along.

How to Start Running: What it really takes to go from “Couch to 5k”

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

After setting my own personal 10k records these past two weekends, I wanted to reflect on how hard I’ve worked to get to this point. Why? Because my first reaction to my 8:43-mile pace was, “I should be faster.”

While I have been running at least 3 miles a day, 4-6 times per week, for the past few months, I hadn’t run a 10k in more than 5 years. So how could I be disappointed with such a solid pace? The most logical way for me to get over my disappointment, and plan for improving my time, was to look at my progression since I began.

In fewer than three months, I went from struggling through a couple of 10-minute miles and calling it a “workout,” to pumping out 25-minute 5ks as warm-ups for strength training sessions. Based on this experience, and what I had learned along the way by studying a variety of training programs, I have a solid understanding of what it will take to get me to my next goal – a 48-minute 10k.

I also have something for you – a realistic, customizable plan, that will get you to your FIRST 5k, then help you get FASTER, and maybe inspire you to work on your 10k.

Recipe: Peanut Butter & Banana Microwave “Crepes” with Honey, Cinnamon, and Dried Apricots

Monday, March 10, 2014

I was inspired to create this after eating a real crepe that was both very delicious and almost healthy. This is a version that’s very healthy, almost as delicious, and super easy to make – in the microwave! ... findingyourfitplace.com/2014/03/09/r
