I woke up this morning feeling pretty energized, so I really pushed myself; it's a strength training day, mostly upper body. I upped my weights, and really burned it up!
I also added dumbbells to my squats and lunges - BIG DIFFERENCE.

That's the way I felt today, anyway. Went to bed later than I wanted to, so I woke up later than I wanted to. Got an hour (!!!) of ballet/barre done, flew into the shower, got ready and out the door on time...
Only to sit in a long traffic ... Read more
You really should! It brought tears to my eyes, seriously.
I think we can all relate to this.

This morning, getting out of bed to do the workout was a real struggle. It's a grey, dark, foggy, rainy morning, and the last thing I wanted to do was leave my cozy Andrew and all our fuzzy kitties to get up and face the cold air, the power yog... Read more
Okay! So I'm a quarter of the way through the program.
Overall, I'm pretty happy! Each time I do the workout, I find it a little easier - so I push myself a little harder. I'm also adding a few of my own exercises and a "wild card" worko... Read more
So I've consistently worked out every day now for 25 days. (I'm not sure if I logged all those days, but I've definitely DONE IT.) I alternate strength training with cardio via Tony Horton's P90 program for six days - and I make my seventh day... Read more
I have been with Sparkpeople a whole year! Wooooo hoooo!!!
So happy to have found this site and the people who are on this journey with me. Do not for one second underestimate the power of group support! Thanks, folks, for being there to... Read more
Not sure why, but I lately have had a serious hankering for anything and everything having to do with iceberg lettuce. (Disappointing, since iceberg is probably the least nutritious out of the salad greens. Foo.)
This happens to me every ... Read more
Between the dog's fussing and Andrew's snoring all night, I got next to NO sleep. I feel like the walking dead.
In terms of wanting to lose weight, this is not good. There's some evidence that not getting enough sleep makes us more prone ... Read more
So this barre workout SAYS it's only 55 minutes...
But it's really way more than an hour. I completely skipped one section of it!
Even so, I did an hour of it. I feel challenged, lengthened, and stretched. I think I'm going to like ... Read more
I really challenged myself today, kids...
I bought the Xtend Barre Lean Chiseled workout by Andrea Rogers. I'd heard really great things about it and, as a dancer (albeit not a ballerina but more of the hoofer/burlesque variety!), I know ... Read more
Now that I've gotten cardio over with for today (woot!), I have a few things to do:
1) go to stupid bridal show and look at stupid bridal things... which should be really exciting for me, but it isn't. Weddings are fun, and I'm looking for... Read more
I'm really coming to love working out on weekends... it's so nice to get it done and get on with the rest of the day, but moreover, it's nice to not rush - especially on the strength training. I feel like i can really take my time and focus on... Read more
