This has been an interesting week for me. I started out with an 8 mile run, which left me feeling proud and strong and awesome.
I was also sore for days after. It made my plyometrics class more about pain endurance than anything else, but I go... Read more

Imagine the happiest of happy dances, and that is what is going on in my head right now. Not my body. I'm too sore and exhausted for that, but exhausted in the good way. My muscles are spent. I love this feeling.
Did I mention I ran 8 miles to... Read more
Week 2 of my clean eating did not go as well as week 1. I did fine during the week, but once again the weekend set me back in my old ways. I was under a lot of stress and surrounded by candy, and I gave in. It was almost unconscious as first, an... Read more
I'm having trouble typing this blog. Why?
Because I just did this: www.bodyrock.tv/2011/11/ 02/im-sexy-and-i-know-it-w orkout/ Wow. Intense.
This is only my 3rd Body Rock workout, but I love them! They are short, int... Read more
So, I'm a week into my November plan to limit my sugar intake and try to eat clean. It's going pretty well. I've mostly adjusted to the taste of Stevia, and I managed to avoid eating any of the kids' Halloween candy. That is a major victory for ... Read more
I love the days when I am completely in tune with my body, and exercise seems easy. Yesterday was one of those days, but it didn't start out that way.
When I got up yesterday morning, I was sore. An hour of lifting heavy is intense, and I topp... Read more
I'm calling November my stevia challenge. Overall, my eating has been pretty good, but I've been stuck losing/gaining the same 3-4 pounds. I still have 25 pounds to lose, and I want them gone! So, I've decided to actually start eating clean - li... Read more

Last night my husband was messing around and picked me up. I don't usually let him because I was so afraid that he wouldn't be able to. He not only was able to, but he carried me around the house which my kids found hilarious.
Then he told me... Read more
My trainer made my day yesterday. During our hour long sprint-fest, she kept talking about her plans for building up the number of sprints and laps around the soccer field, and each time, I would nod and say "okay". At one point she laughed and ... Read more
The last couple weeks have been huge for me mentally and emotionally. Making the choice to try to think positive has changed so much in my life. (I'll be writing a blog about this soon.) I also finally made the mental switch. I already mentioned... Read more

Losing weight is not easy. If it was, there wouldn't be a zillion different weight loss products on the market, and we would all be thin, fit, and he... Read more
I'm finding that when I think positive, life just works out somehow. Worrying about everything has no purpose and just holds me back. This week has been amazing. My Zumba classes are going great. I'm working with a friend on her weight loss and ... Read more
