Form Correction for Box Squats

Friday, June 21, 2013      3 comments

Hey all! I've started taking videos of my squats because I want to be sure they're good form. And then I realized I haven't blogged in forever. So I figured I'd share the video!

Taking Up Space (With Photos)

Wednesday, April 10, 2013      21 comments

Whoa, it's been a while! Just a quick check in. My workouts and unprocessed eating have been going well. I feel like I'm very well able to practice moderation. A slice of pizza or a scoop of ice cream isn't going to make or break me and I'm lovi... Read more

Acts of Gym Kindness

Wednesday, March 20, 2013      6 comments

So since the ballerina comment from my last blog post, things haven't necessarily gotten much better. I've still been feeling remarkably unwelcome in "boys club". In fact, when doing an upper body circuit last week, some guy came over and took t... Read more

A Gym Story That Will Make No One Laugh (Least of All Me)

Wednesday, February 27, 2013      20 comments

If you'd asked Little Jolene what she wanted to be when she grew up, you'd probably hear something having to do with horses or to be a veterinarian. I sincerely doubt that I ever suggested being a princess. And I never wanted to be a ballerina. ... Read more

Oh My Glob, You Guys. Gym Drama Bomb!

Tuesday, February 26, 2013      11 comments

Last night I got to the gym and it was crazy packed. It was packed to the point where I had to alter my gym plan consistently because I couldn't get to the equipment I needed. But do you know what happens when the gym is packed? If you guessed G... Read more

A running theme in my gym stories is the characters I meet at the gym. I meet a lot of them. A lot. From Phil the (incredibly nice) leech to Paul, who trolled me hard, to stinky guy, to guy who sort of questioned whether or not I was a woman? St... Read more

Last night, Awesome Husband and I went to the gym for a really quick session before heading over a friend's house for dinner. We knew we didn't have much time but we both had had really stressful work days and wanted to lift some metal. Also, my... Read more

Further Gym Adventures (Back by Popular Demand)

Tuesday, January 22, 2013      11 comments

Okay, popular demand might just be a note on my wall from the lovely Kim_Possible77 asking how I'm doing since there haven't been any gym adventures! Well, don't you worry. I've had them. I just haven't posted about them for some reason. Buckle ... Read more

I've been thinking about goals all morning and feeling positive about them. It might be because I've had the flu for a week and have barely worked out at all and am itching to get back to the gym. So goals. Goals which I have definitive pla... Read more

An Exceptionally Important Revelation.

Friday, December 21, 2012      2 comments

Do you want to know what sucks? Being afraid to look in a mirror because all you see is flaws. Being afraid of the scale because it very well might ruin your whole day and not in an abstract way. In a tears and anxiety kind of way. Having a fun ... Read more

Hushing My Inner Jerk

Wednesday, November 07, 2012      15 comments

Last night I left BodyCombat, sweaty and beet-red, with a burning hip and a little fear that I'd overdone it, when I saw a friend. We got to chatting about the assorted classes offered by the gym and the various instructors and members of the cl... Read more

Adding Something New (Spoilers: It's CrossFit)

Thursday, November 01, 2012      4 comments

Whoa. It's been a while since I posted anything. I don't really have anything insightful to say. Just some updates on what I've been up to. Awesome Husband hasn't been up to the gym this week. He's fighting something. He feels okay but he's... Read more

Practicing What I Preach

Tuesday, October 09, 2012      4 comments

I talk a lot about body love and acceptance. I always have. But most of the time, I'm a giant hypocrite. At my lowest, I had a hard time looking in any mirror I walked by. I'd cry sometimes. I'd keep my arms crossed over my belly when I sat... Read more

Getting Back To It

Monday, October 01, 2012      9 comments

Last Friday I had my last visit with my physical therapist. She did some strength tests, looked at my range of mobility and tightness, asked about pain levels, brought me into the gym to do lunges with dumbbells and strength moves with a resista... Read more

Sad Spiral

Monday, September 17, 2012      7 comments

Maybe this entry is going to be really just for me. Or maybe it's so people know what's going on inside my head. Maybe I just need to get it all out. Being depressed is not something that usually happens to me. Anxiety, sure. Me and anxiety... Read more
