If you have been reading my tiny space of the internet for sometime now, you might remember my struggles with some goals. Specifically planking. When I first started the plank, I could barely secure the move with good form for fifteen, twenty seconds tops. As I began to shed some weight and strengthen my entire … More Whatever Floats Your Boat
At the risk of sounding cliche, I will go ahead and exclaim, “I can’t believe summer is over next week!” I started my second week of work today and much to my surprise I transitioned into early mornings very well. Sometimes I surprise myself and wake up before my alarm. Even more shocking, I was … More So Long Summer
It feels as though I haven’t written a post in a while. Eleven days according to WordPress. That’s a long time between posts for me. I have been struggling a little with content ideas. I am just living day-to-day, so that’s not exciting to write about. I haven’t had any epiphanies or a-ha moments, traveled, … More Get Your Snacks On Route 66
I was talking to a lady in the gym locker room yesterday. She said she already broke her resolution to lose weight by eating two slices of Oreo cheesecake. Resolutions. So many, so little time. If I had a dime for every time I swore of this or that, I would be rich. Giving up … More The Most Stubborn Vice

It was good fun and I was attacked by this bat-winged skeleton: I came as myself with three … More 8 Weeks of Personal Training- How I’m Doing as a Client Update

Well, it’s been one week and a day since my training and food plan by Fitpeel has been implemented. The program is not without its challenges, but over all I have been doing … More Have I been a Good Client so Far?
I received my training and meal plan from my trainer last night, and I was excited to get on board. This is the first time I have hired a professional for help in my fitness goals. I have had a consultation and a couple one time free training sessions at my gym for being a … More I’m a Client!
Happy Monday! Are we back here already? The weekend flew by in a blur. Last week it was a challenge to get to the gym. It was my first week back at work, and I think I’m still adjusting to early mornings and didn’t sleep very well throughout the week, worrying about sleeping in and … More Monday Motivational Song and Workouts
Happy Labour Day! Before I head off for a dip in the pool, I wanted to pop in for Motivational Monday workouts and song. It is hotter than a furnace in hell out there so a swim is a necessity today. I wasn’t going to post today, because I did yesterday and I don’t want … More Monday Motivational Song and Weekly Workouts
