My student trainer had cardio planned for the menu today! Started out on the treadmill for 30 minutes, moving from 0 to 10 on the incline, 2.5 to 4.0 on the speed. I held the 10 incline/4.0 for 2 minutes. We gradually went up and gradually moved... Read more
Wednesday Workout - Oct. 3
Worked with my student trainer for 75 minutes tonight. We would have gone longer, but I seemed to hit a wall tonight and we're guessing it's due to needing rest and not being properly hydrated (I had an off day today -- an all day retreat and di... Read more
Tuesday Workout - Oct. 2
Met with my student trainer again after work today. We hit it pretty hard yesterday, so she said today's workout wouldn't be quite as challenging, but I must tell you, we started out with the most intense 30 minute cardio workout I've EVER exper... Read more

What a great start to my Saturday!
Met my second cousin at Planet Fitness this morning. I'm a bit of a loner when it comes to working out. I know having a partner works for many people, but my schedule is limited so I like to get there, get focused, get it done, and get out! Work... Read more

Another Session With My Trainer
Seriously, how can someone so sweet, and cute, and innocent looking ... wreak so much pain! LOL
Started out by loosening my tight quads by riding the Expresso Bike for 2 miles (it really did help), then some light stretching and more upper... Read more
Session With My Student Trainer Today
Well, she had to cancel on Monday but didn't say why ... the poor girl was having seizures this weekend. She looked SO pale today, but she gets 4 stars for showing up. I could tell she wasn't feeling that great, but she smiled, she encouraged, a... Read more
Getting IT Back
Vacation was very relaxing and I enjoyed the break. It was my first vacation since beginning in early June (other than a quick getaway weekend at the beginning of the summer). But I came back feeling disappointed that I didn't uphold my bargain ... Read more
Low Blood Sugar Incident
Nothing is more important than taking care of ourselves.
I misplaced my eye glasses and was in a tizzy looking for them this morning. There's a reason I panic when I can't find them ... my adorable little dog, Aldo, has chewed 3 pairs of my... Read more
Training Session #2 - Wed., 9/12/2012
I met with my trainer for the second time after work today (5-6 pm). Let me start out by saying ... it was NOTHING like what I expected!
We did some gentle stretching and warm up. The 3 sets of 30 jumping jacks felt strange. I can't remem... Read more
Strategy for Today
Yesterday was insane. Just before I was ready to leave for work, I had a an overflow in the bathroom and a flood on my hands. Had to change clothes and ended up being late for work, which caused me to work later. I'm on vacation next week, so I'... Read more
Best Spark Day!
Yesterday was such an awesome Spark Day for me -- because I did all of the things I know I'm capable of doing. I exercised, drank my water, made good food choices, tracked every bite, had the proper sleep, and pushed myself just a little bit har... Read more
