So the other day I told my challenge group about going to a little quilting retreat/workshop with an internationally known free motion quilter and a couple of the ladies asked me to share some of my quilting. So this won't be as much of a blog a... Read more

Yup, that's what it is sometimes. I've had some rough years, physically, lately. So some of my "fears" that have been limiting my workouts are legitimate. I've actually put my jaw or neck or back or knee out by doing certain workouts. Sometimes ... Read more

3 miles of interval training (walk/jog/walk/jog to raise & lower the heart rate) this afternoon and then jumped in the workout room and pushed play on Chalene Extreme's Extreme Core Circuit. There's a serious amount of ab work tucked into those ... Read more

As promised, to myself if no one else, I got in and did an hour of strength training via Les Mills Pump. I stayed at the same weight load on all of the exercises except the chest press. I actually went down 2.5 pounds on each side of the barbell... Read more
3 weeks - 5 pounds
Wednesday, July 24, 2013      9 comments

Ok, I'm putting this out here. My cousin's daughter is getting married in 3 weeks. I don't normally "event" diet or train. I'd rather just "train to be healthy" and keep that constant focus - always looking at the big picture instead of the shor... Read more

I have NEVER had a stretch feel sooooo good and hurt sooooo much at the same time! I guess I thought I had to do it all tonight. I did Les Mills Pump 55 minute Revolution (strength training) first. And I, of course, in all my wisdom, made the de... Read more
Combat Shock Plyo HIIT - Should have been warned! LOL
Tuesday, January 08, 2013      5 comments

Ok, I guess I should have known. There shouldn't have been any surprise, really. But, I'm obviously naive. Or, I've become so complacent in my physical fitness ability with Turbo Fire, that I thought I could handle anything Combat threw at me. W... Read more
What our bodies were made for.
Friday, December 28, 2012      6 comments

Got my workout done this morning (Turbo Fire 55 EZ) and you can NOT believe how good that felt! Forget the weightloss for a moment, our bodies were designed to MOVE. Just think of all the joints, muscles, and cushioning that we were made with, i... Read more

Yes, I learned a lesson in perseverance from a cartoon movie character. Remember Dory, the little fishy with the "never say die" attitude? I wanted a nice little 11 - 12 mile jog Sunday as I have exactly 2 weeks until my first 1/2 marathon ... Read more
I think I made a good choice today.

The typical Sunday morning/noon at our house looks like this: Up, shower, shakeology, makeup and hair, church, then home for bacon and eggs for dinner. This time of year the afternoon normally involves a football game for a while, at least, and ... Read more
Start Next Week Out Right - On The Weekend
Friday, October 05, 2012      3 comments

If you're like many (including myself!), you kind of forget about your fitness plan during the weekend. You think you can let it all go on the weekend and start that diet or exercise program over again on Monday. Or maybe your feel you deserve t... Read more
