Project FB - Day 7 - Lower Body Overdose (Pic)

Thursday, June 12, 2014      1 comments

Oops! The fitness blender eBook I bought does a great job explaining each workout on its own page but one thing it is lacking is it doesnt remind you when to rest. There is a calendar that shows what to do when but I was assuming when I turned t... Read more

Project FB - Day 6 - Quest for 20 Pushups

Wednesday, June 11, 2014      3 comments

Tonight was one heckuva workout. I ran 1.25 miles on my treadmill as a warmup, did a 26 minute boot camp workout, 21 minute abs workout, and then stretched it out. I felt very spent by the end of this... and then I remembered the 20 pushups. ... Read more

Project FB - Day 5 - I am a Right Side Snob (Pics)

Tuesday, June 10, 2014      1 comments

Today was cardio and lower body. I came to the realization that I really must favor my right side, and I am probably doubly flexible on my right side as my left. I have occasional left knee problems so I'm not sure if I am subconsciously babying... Read more

Sunday, June 08, 2014      4 comments

Ok... true confession time. I only got through 3.5 weeks of Insanity and I'm throwing in the towel. Why? I'm so bored of it... the same 3 workouts, over and over... lets just say I'm over it. I have it forever, so I can restart or do it any time... Read more

Wednesday, May 21, 2014      3 comments

I admit it... I kinda sorta miss blogging on Sparkpeople. I have gotten away from posting on my separate blog because I have too many Facebook stalkers so I think this is a better venue. I saw the other night on my Sparkpage the little sym... Read more
