So Thursday, the day before Friday...I always like the other side of hump day...but I really like Thursday, also, because it's shoulder day in my new workout, and I'm loving doing shoulders--really I guess I love every lift, except legs--but sho... Read more
Ok, I admit it, I've become a gym rat! My time at the gym is like a cure-all for my moods and life's problems. I enjoy getting into a good sweat, I'm addicted to watching my heart rate increase as I'm working out, and I LOVE lifting weights. I l... Read more
After a less than impressive weekend, which saw me feeling too nauseous to eat much, and have to leave spin class a little early, I'm back on track today. I'm still not feeling quite right, but I got my workout in and lifted heavy and did five e... Read more
I just finished taking a SP poll in the fitness section and was stunned to see that 22% of people never refresh their music and 29% of people don't even listen to music while they workout! I couldn't dream of getting a good workout in without my... Read more
Idea for next workout....
Rather than do three sets of dumbbell presses followed by three sets of incline presses, combine the two exercises. Start with one set of chest presses on a flat bench. Then raise the bench one notch from the flat position—to about 15 to 20 degr... Read more
Wow I don't believe I haven't blogged since Monday! It's been a little busy around here, having to help out with my grandsons, who have been sick..and so has their mommy...that caused me to miss my spin class and morning workout yesterday. In th... Read more

Today I had a double-header softball game and with that, some challenges. The biggest being water consumption, and also, how to eat healthy with only a 30 minute break between games. I call this a mini-challenge because once tournaments begin, I... Read more
Softball Opening Day!
I started my softball scrimmage season today, and was delighted to realize how much easier I move around 15.8 pounds lighter than before, and also, how well my uniform fits now...I even had to tighten up some of my equipment because it was too l... Read more
Learning something new all the time with SP
In reading various articles and blogs over the past few days, I came upon something that I've been doing for four years that could actually be impeding my progress - the article stated that when focusing on building muscle your cardio on lifting... Read more
Understanding the process
Over the past year, my life has had a lot of little twists and turns, and then I was hit with the loss of my mother (my friend). I blogged earlier about how much my mom's memory is driving me to stay true to my goal, but I realize day by day, th... Read more
Getting out of a rut
The most important part of getting fit is to stop making excuses not to, Dixon says. We all are crunched for time, sore, and just looking for an excuse to stay in our jammies.

What a beautiful day!
The weather here in Jersey was totally awesome today. I usually do a spin class on Saturday morning but decided to go for a run instead. It was so gorgeous, almost too warm, as I was really worked up into a major sweat.
I'm finally back to... Read more
Why can't people get it?
I was recently contacted by an old school mate, who is involved with her Woman's Club's undertaking of running a weight loss program for her city in Ohio. Their efforts began on Jan. 1 and some of the participants have plateaued. So she was aski... Read more
Today was leg day--not my favorite workout...but it's especially bothersome because I realized today that after leg workouts, I don't have a high energy level to devote to spin class. In comparison to yesterday's spin class, today's was a disapp... Read more
