“Come on, you can do it!” “Get it girls! You’re almost done!” “You’re doing awesome you guys! Keep going!” I started to tune out these positive mantras of cheers and encouragement. The clapping began to annoy me slightly. I was a sweaty, frazzled mess and the techno beat blaring from the speaker through all the … More The Competitive Edge
Happy Easter! I am enjoying a four-day weekend, with a lot of prayer, Biblical reflection and delicious home-cooked and traditional foods. A little vino will also be on the agenda.

Today was supposed to be a chest, shoulders and triceps workout day. Unfortunately I was just not feeling it in the least. The only way I could describe my mood today was blah. I didn’t have the motivation to cook, clean or do the laundry, much less workout. My body became an imprint in my … More Beastmode or Sleep Mode?
I am becoming more and more interested in trying a Warrior Dash. Three miles and ten obstacle courses? I could handle that. I think I have worked hard enough for the past three years to the point where I could describe myself as being in good shape. Not great by any means, but not too shabby … More Scaredy Squirrel or Warrior?
It’s officially spring. I wish someone would tell this to winter. Spring has sprung! It snowed today. Albeit very light flurries that didn’t stick around, still it was snow. My cold weather ranting aside, now that it is a new season I changed my program. I recently started the 5 by 5 program. This program … More Spring Training/ Workout Update
