Happiness is Contagious--Spread the cooties!

Tuesday, December 02, 2014      2 comments

I had 6 women participate in my PiYo class today. They all loved the new routine. I had their limbs shaking by the end of the 45 minute workout. It truly is an awesome feeling, helping others achieve success. They're helping me too by keeping m... Read more

Exhaustion Run Amuck

Monday, December 01, 2014      3 comments

I'm sure you feel the same way I do today. Tired, exhausted, and a little heavier. The carbo overload from last week is definitely taking its toll on me today, my first day back to work. I feel like a slug. I can definitely feel the extra weig... Read more

PiYo & Color Run

Wednesday, November 12, 2014      1 comments

So, as promised I am making some changes in my life. Today, I downgraded a few apps that were helping me run my Beachbody business, so I won't be paying for those services. I'm going to keep my Beachbody coach subscription so I can keep gettin... Read more

Back to Basics

I've been struggling for a month to stay active and stick to my clean-eating plan, so today, I'm going to focus on the basics. What does that mean? It means, spending some quality at the place where my journey truly began: Sparkpeople. ... Read more

Say what?! That's right, I passed my PiYo certification class on Sunday and I am now an instructor at my gym! My gym director just announced to the class that I would be brought on as a new instructor. I am super excited. I don't think I've... Read more

PiYo Certification and Other Distrations

Thursday, October 02, 2014      2 comments

I just printed the manual for my PiYo Certification Course. I am super nervous, but excited. I think I'll do okay. I'm just worried that I won't be strong enough to make it throughout the day. It's a 9-5 class with a 30 minute lunch break. We ha... Read more

Day 19 of 21.

Friday, September 26, 2014      1 comments

Today, I will make squash/quinoa soup. I've had to split the preparation over a day, which has worked out pretty well. Last night, I threw the acorn squash in the oven for an hour then waited for it to cool before peeling it and storing it in th... Read more

Day 18 of 21 Day Fix

Thursday, September 25, 2014      0 comments

Only a few more days left in my 21 day challenge. It's sad but exciting. Over the last 2 and half weeks I've lost 5lbs! That may not seem like a lot, but for someone with hypothyroidism that's huge! In January, I was 175lbs. Now, I'm 158lbs!! I... Read more

I finally found a program to help me bust through my plateau and it's called the 21 Day Fix! I've been fighting since January to get from 175lbs to under 160, and now I'm 1lbs away! After 3 months of being in the 160s, I'm finally losing inches ... Read more

Day 1 of 21 Day Fix

Monday, September 08, 2014      2 comments

So far so good! I did the 30 minute cardio Fix. That kicked my butt. I almost quit but it got easier once I got passed the 3rd round of exercises. It'll be easy to keep doing those because they're so enjoyable. I love that you can take it at yo... Read more

August=Bust; September=Hope

Thursday, September 04, 2014      2 comments

SO August was a bust. Between the concussion, going to Ireland, and then getting sick, nothing has gone according to plan. I sort of knew this would happen at some point. I knew that getting motivated to start running again after our trip would ... Read more

Z-Pack is on Board.

Wednesday, September 03, 2014      0 comments

So what I thought were just horrible allergies turned out to be strep or something like strep--the nurse practitioner was reluctant to diagnose my condition. But she gave me a z-pack and told me to refrain from exercise for 4 days at least. I'm... Read more

Running Again

Thursday, August 28, 2014      2 comments

I finally made it out at lunch! I started my run mentally prepared but my confidence quickly deteriorated between mile 1 and 2. UGH! I was running 5 miles just 4 weeks ago and now I'm struggling to run a 5k! I ended up walking most of my c... Read more

Finally Motivated, But Can't Do Anything About It.

Wednesday, August 27, 2014      0 comments

This morning I put together my 21 Day Fix challenge material. I'm launching the team in less than 2 weeks! Putting the posts and tips together really helped throw the Spark to light my fires. I want to get out and run so bad but I didn't bring m... Read more
