Two years later: Home gym life.

Misconception in the fitness world is a big grouping. For example: women who lift heavy weights will look like men. Or, this one: if you don’t do any cardio, you’ll never lose weight. Another one that circles around the drain is: you cannot get a “real” workout in from home. Really? What is a “real” […]

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. […]

Workout Wednesday: Still going & post baby goals.

It’s happened. Baby Rebel has decided to start dropping, and tugging my belly down along with him, so I had to do it. I had to buy a maternity band. It helps. Some. It doesn’t provide full relief, especially on my round ligaments, but it is better than nothing. The count down is on, he’s […]

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 […]

When your gym fails you.

Given that we’re so close to the new year, and the high number of people who put “get fit” or “start working out” on their resolution list… I think this post has perfect timing. I’m a big believer in the idea that the gym you go to will either make or break you if you’re […]

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, […]

Shortcut to Size.

Unfortunately, it’s still a huge mindset that if a woman weight lifts, she’s going to to get big. Like Jay Cutler big. Despite more and more proof today that that’s false, it still somehow holds ground. Making women fear the weight rack or machines. Sure, there are women out there who quest to be bigger. […]

Chicks don’t lift.

I hear a lot of things in the gym. A lot of it I expect. I live in a pretty small area. A county with 17 towns has a population of 35K people in it. Doesn’t get a heck of a lot smaller than that. Stereotypes are huge here, but the minds are small. A […]

This might get me in trouble. CrossFit.

Everyone who knows me, knows I’m an avid gym goer. I’m not obsessive over it, if I’m sick, I understand that rest is the best medicine, and stay home. However if I’m having a day where I just don’t want to go to the gym? I still go. After my warm up, I’m always happy […]
