I was going to do this weight program that I had saved from a few years ago (Muscle and Fitness Hers magazine, workout was called "Back the Gym Basics") today, but for today it was mainly arms. In kickboxing, we did tons tons of bicep work, so ... Read more
So, I made it to the gym 4 times last week! This week I made it there twice, but I did workout at home yesterday as well. I worked today, and I have to work the next 2 days (12 hour shifts), so I'm not sure if I'll be able to workout the next ... Read more

What I'm doing now...

I'm writing a paper for school on childhood obesity. It is unbelievable how many empty calories parents give their kids just for the sake of "taste"! No wonder our country keeps getting bigger and bigger. I am trying to stress the fact to my ... Read more
B&N Gift Card
I went to B&N today to see if there was anything I wanted to buy with my gift card from Christmas. It was soooo busy in there, it was hard to even look around! I'll have to go during the week instead of on a weekend! I looked at Tosca's newes... Read more

Well, I finally tried the Turbo Sport DVD today. Chalene's sister, Janelle, is the leader in it, along with 2 other people. The music is the same as Turbo Jam, but much LOUDER. This workout is not for Turbo Jam beginners, as there is not as m... Read more

This is a lifestyle!
I think I'm finally getting to the point of seeing this as a LIFESTYLE change, not a DIET. I've gotten up at 4:30 today and yesterday to workout before working. It was so nice to do it before work, and not have to worry about it after a 12-hou... Read more
