No Long Run - Boo Hiss!

Monday, January 06, 2014      0 comments

Welp, I figured out this weekend that the saying is true: "Get up and get moving before your brain figures out what you're doing". I lingered too long in bed Saturday and skipped my long run with full intentions of doing it later at 3pm. 3pm cam... Read more

5 Miles - Gotta Learn to Run Solo

Thursday, January 02, 2014      2 comments

I had a great 3 miler yesterday and topped it off with a 2-mile power walk. Not too bad for an early morning Commitment Run with my running group. However, I've been MIA from my running group for a while so I heard a lot of "Where have you been"... Read more

Plans for 2014

Friday, December 27, 2013      1 comments

Wow, it's been a very long time since I visited my SP page. Time to blow off the dust and truly get to work. Reflecting on the latter part of 2013, I have really struggled with running. I ran with a group of ladies for the wrong reasons (l... Read more

90 Days to a Better Body

Tuesday, February 26, 2013      0 comments

Brought to you by Oxygen Magazine... This is the workout I am adding to my schedule. I started yesterday. Why wait to start a new program on March 1 when I can start today, right? The workout consists of 4 sets: wall sits, squats, lung... Read more

Down 2 lbs

Monday, February 25, 2013      7 comments

Wow! I'm happy the scale is moving in a positive way. I'm just not sure what I can attribute this to. 1) No sweets since Ash Wednesday; 2) incorporated body pump (the past week) and a better spin class (two weeks ago); 3) scaled back on my ... Read more

The things I learn from The Biggest Loser

Tuesday, February 19, 2013      3 comments

Warning...this is a rant - my personal rant - against the whiny Alex and the smart alec Jeff from BL. You can do anything for 5 minutes. You can run at a 6.0 pace for 5 mins without dying. I'm not sure which contestant makes me want t... Read more

No sweets for Lent

Thursday, February 14, 2013      1 comments

I'm not an active Catholic. I do say I'm spiritual and believe in a higher power, but being raised Catholic I understand the purpose of Lent. It's a period of sacrifice between the time Jesus was crucified and his resurrection. A single man suff... Read more

Need Motivation? Workout Naked!

Wednesday, February 13, 2013      3 comments

I've been really lax about my food - I know this. I don't track because it's a pain. I eat sweets because I want them. I complain about the weight I've gained. Well guess what? I know what I'm supposed to do. I did a mini-WOD this morn... Read more

Gator Run

Thursday, January 31, 2013      2 comments

I am still struggling with liking these longer distances with my runs. I ran a trail run this past Sunday in a beautiful State Park not too far from my home and not too large of a crowd (approximately 250 participants). My first trail run ... Read more

We get them, some of us get them more often than others, some are more severe than others. But headaches should not be taken lightly. I thought I learned my lesson with hydration during the Rock n Roll San Antonio race back in Nov. I had a... Read more

January Core Challenge

Friday, January 04, 2013      1 comments

I am working towards doing 2-a-days twice weekly and I plan to incorporate this core challenge along with it. So far, it's working and I don't feel bad that I've had to put off my WOD for yoga this morning as long as I know I can get this core c... Read more

Santa is Hustling

Monday, December 31, 2012      0 comments

I'm determined to not let this cold sideline me. I've been on the sofa since Christmas and I blame that darn half marathon in Galveston on Sunday (moving from humid to windy to damp air is not a good thing). And let's not talk about the Sa... Read more

Variety is the spice of life

Monday, December 10, 2012      2 comments

Last week was a good week, workout-wise. I think I am finally getting in a groove and finding a variety of workouts. So my new schedule for the next few weeks (fingers crossed this works): Mon - TurboFire Tues - Run Wed - TurboFire... Read more

I Like Big Butts

Tuesday, December 04, 2012      1 comments

And I cannot lie!!! Well, I don't actually like my butt. It sits too high and my skirts ride up in the back. You'll never see me in a video or strip club making it clap either. Butt, er, but, I am taking on the challenge to keep my ... Read more
