My office is closed today so I went to a later workout class and was joined by a colleague from work. I think I mentioned before that the group of us that usually hang out on Fridays decided that instead of happy hour every couple weeks we would... Read more

Had a winter storm last night, dropped 8 inches of snow on us but it's going to be 45 degrees today, 45 tomorrow, 55 on Tuesday and 70 on Wednesday so I'm seriously thinking of not cleaning the snow at all. Tomorrow is arms and abs day at the gy... Read more

Arms & Abs- workout review
Today's burn was 829 calories which is outstanding for a mostly strength training day, especially upper body. I'll see how long it takes me to catch that elusive 1,000 calorie burn in a session.

How do you see yourself? Where ever you are on this journey, do you see yourself as the person you are becoming or the person you were? Or, do you see yourself as others see you?
For the longest while when I started seriously trying to lose... Read more
Two days before the grand opening of my new gym and I am pumped! I love boxing and I think the whole night club atmosphere for a workout is innovative and fun, who doesn't love dancing? I mean, there won't be much dancing but there will be black... Read more
