Have To Get Back to AM Workouts
I am two weeks into my Cathe rotation, and so far so good. I only subbed one easier, steady state workout today, but I also added in 17 minutes of tough Cathe ab work! I plan to get back on the tougher stuff tomorrow.

New Cathe Rotation
I have started a new Cathe rotation that incorporates strength, cardio, and flexibility. So far so good. It's a combination of her STS Total Body and LIS workouts. It seems way more balanced that Drop 2 Sizes, except for the tricep work. I w... Read more
Back On Track But Switching Gears
My week off did not go as planned :) Because of recurring shoulder issues and the hectic pace of my final week in training, I did not do much yoga. I may have done two sessions. I also did not do my pushups challenge. It was killing me not t... Read more
Taking A Week Off
I just realized that it's been about 8 weeks since I've taken a rest week. I usually go around 4-6 weeks working out full on, and then take a week off to restart and renew. Sometimes I won't do anything, other times it's light work. It's a ch... Read more
Good morning all! Last week was a bit of a set back. It was that TOTM, so I was really fatigued. Additionally, I couldn't do much with my hurt shoulder. But this week, I am back in the game! I'm starting off really light on shoulder work, a... Read more
Hurt Shoulder - Maybe Rotator Cuff?
Just when I increased my pushup reps, my shoulder started acting wonky again. I can't even sleep on that side. My friend who used to be my trainer says that I should rest it for at least two weeks. That means NO shoulder exercises. Additiona... Read more
Long Time Not Posting!
It's been such a long time since my last post -- nearly two years ago! I am updating to say that I have that house (finally!) and we are settling in slowly but surely. We moved in January 2013. I've been at my job for two years. It is stress... Read more
Lots of Life Changes
A lot has been going on in my life. I've relocated back up north for a new and better job. I had been in training for three months, living out of a hotel all that time, and separated from my family. I am now trying to buy a house. With all t... Read more
Still Going Strong
I'm in my third week of the Powerfit workouts, and it's going great! This has been the first week where I have not been consistent every day (I missed two days) but I am not feeling all that bad about it. I've had migraines and stress lately, ... Read more
Setbacks and Pressing Forward
I finally feel comfortable working out again. I had been experiencing right hip pain for months, and I finally went to the doctor to have it checked out. He says my psoas is inflamed and has me in physical therapy twice a week to alleviate som... Read more
Looking on the Bright Side
This week has been a week of looking on the bright side. I've been faced with some setbacks, but I have found that it's been easier than I thought to find the good in the situation.
Fitness wise, I have not been able to work out in about t... Read more
Fun with Family
Had a really great weekend! I went to see my family. It was fun to hang out with my niece and nephews. They are all growing up so fast! I do admit, I didn't eat so great :) Went to a chinese buffet, and you know how that goes. However, I c... Read more
Since my last entry, I've been doing very well with both strength, cardio, and diet changes! Although it would be nice to lose around 5-10 pounds, I am happy where I am weight wise. I would like to get to around 21-24% body fat percentage. Th... Read more
Cardio - Good. Strength - Not so Good
I have been doing really well with my cardio. I take those three days a week at work to walk the hilly fitness trail, do step aerobics, and kickboxing. I also try to walk twice on the weekends. But I have not been at all motivated to do stren... Read more

Back in the Game!
I have decided to completely reset my goals on Sparkpeople and start over! I am now back to stage 1, and I'm excited to be back here. I got my doctor's note for my job, so now I get three hours of paid gym time a week. Now there is no excuse:... Read more
