You Know What You Have To Do – Do It!

Today I’ve been wrapping up my schoolwork for the week and preparing for my fitness classes.  Because I don’t have access to a lot of equipment for boot camp, I’ve relied on the internet to inspire me to be more creative in my workouts.  And today, I seem to keep pulling up references to Rocky … Continue reading

For the shopping impaired …

Can I just have someone do the shopping FOR me?  Thanks to Pinterest, I found this site … and I love it!  Many different outfit ideas with links to find each piece of the ensemble.  Does life get better than this?  I’m sure it does.  But for someone who’s as shopping challenged as I am, this … Continue reading

Shaved Fennel Salad

Does this look as yummy to you as it does to me?  It could be just my imagination.  I mean, I have been on this LOW sugar, HIGH protein, minimal carb diet for over 2 weeks now!  But it’s been great for me.  It took about two weeks to get used to, but I’ve started … Continue reading

What Motivates Me?

I love to run.  Of course, I love to run when I have the time to go for a long run and then spend the following hour under a hot shower! Long distance running is not a convenient sport … it’s a sport that demands dedication and commitment, and TIME. Having such a full plate right now sometimes … Continue reading

I Got Them Moves Like Jagger

Nothing motivates me to move more than a song with a catchy hook that I can make up a little dance to.  Anyone lucky enough to take my Urban Fusion dance class when Maroon 5 released “Moves Like Jagger” knows my enthusiasm for it. Add Victoria’s Secret models to the tune and I REALLY get … Continue reading

Sculpted Arms – Boot Camp 2012!

The second 6-week session of BodyFit BootCamp at Tantrum Fitness didn’t wait for the ball to finish dropping before kicking everyone back into high gear! Tonight will be my first night getting to work with 6 wonderful ladies – 3 returning from the first session, and 3 new. I’m thrilled to be “coaching” women who are looking to push themselves to the next level in fitness. I’m already inspired!

I’m on Cloud 9

My initial run through the Cloud 9 drive-thru was a complete accident, sort of.   Since I began commuting to San Luis Obispo for work a year ago, I’ve made the Starbucks by my house a regular stop on my way to work (no, not every single day – but just often enough that they know my … Continue reading

Stick a needle in my …

Finally did it.  Been wanting to for years.  I’m not scared.  I actually have a very high pain tolerance (shoot, I endured gallbladder “attacks” for 2 years before I did anything about it).  I’m just busy.  And when I’m not busy, I’m lazy.  But I finally did it on Sunday.  I let someone poke a … Continue reading
