Program changing. Need to stay focused because: Shoulders.

I’ve always enjoyed dabbling in other programs. Ones either created by a trainer friend of mine who lives in my town, or some of the fit pros I follow on social media. But, pre-baby, even during my pregnancy, I loved most the programs that I created for myself. Because I can write a mean program. […]

When You Come Full circle.

I feel like I’ve sort of come full circle in my fitness journey, but yet, I’ve done more than come full circle. I started working out, at home, awkwardly and privately, to some VHS tapes I bought (I feel like I’m dating myself there by saying that). I progressed from there to printouts from magazines […]

WW: Double Lift Weights Faster.

I have felt very heavy today. It seems that Baby Rebel has decided to lay at the bottom of my stomach all day long, giving me the feeling that I’m carrying around a 50-pound stone. To top it off, it’s snowing, heavily, my gym closed early today like they do the day before EVERY holiday, […]

Transformation Tuesday: Not what you expect.

This is a different kind of Transformation Tuesday post. And in it, weight isn’t going to be discussed. First, because for me, it’s never been about the number on the scale. It’s been about what I see in the mirror, how I feel every day. Even before pregnancy. I also hate that once a woman […]

Workout Wednesday: Classes, LWF, and Cardio.

I did something I haven’t done in awhile this past Sunday – I worked out with my class. Right there, alongside them, for all five rounds. Typically, since getting pregnant and having that sluggish touch-and-go energy, I will demonstrate the full out exercise, a rep or two and give the modified versions of each, then […]

Workout: Back to Basics.

This blog has only seriously been a million days in the making. Well, not really a million, but ten days. Seriously. Between a storm that knocked out power for three days, insanity at work (gotta love poll papers!), clean up from the snow storm, and life in general… It’s been a bit since I’ve been […]

Competition Series: Part Three.

Friday was an absolutely gorgeous day. Despite nerves and panic seeding itself deep only a few days before, I was able to push it all aside and enjoy the day. I got some of my yard raked, and I got to break in my new bathing suit and get a little sun on my pasty […]

Competition Series: Part Two.

Oh and this is where excitement gets replaced by panic. Thirteen days out from competition and my mind is going a million miles an hour. Of course, it doesn’t help where I start my Weekend FITT classes within a week. So between planning that, working on weekday classes, focusing on my “day job” and this? […]

Just because you go to the gym…

It’s that time of year where my gym gets an influx of new members (majority is male) looking to either change their lifestyle or stick with the gym because they’ve just recently been assigned to our Coast Guard station here. These are the few weeks (aside from in January) where it takes me a little […]
