If you have been following the challenge, CONGRATS! You have made it to the end of week one! Take a weekend to recover but don’t undo everything you just worked for! Try going for a walk, bike ride, or do some yoga at least one day this week to keep your body active. Also, if…

It’s Never Too Early To Train!

Yesterday I decided I want to do a Tough Mudder or a Mini Triathlon this summer. Well, turns out my 54 year old father was already planning to do an Olympic length triathlon and asked me to do it with him! That is a 1000m swim, 10 mile bike, and 10k run. So much for…

6 Week HIIT Challenge: Day 4

It is almost the end of the week! Keep your head up and it will be the weekend before you know it! Today I did a bonus cardio video for a 20 minute HIIT workout. Tonight I am going to do a 1 hour strength training video after dinner to try and help digest my…

What to do today?

I am one of those people that like to start a new program on a Monday. Why? I’m not really sure. Probably because it is easiest to follow that way, but really I don’t know the answer. So, I decided to do strength training and HIIT training until Monday comes back around to start my…

6 Week Challenge!

I signed up for the 6 week challenge yesterday and took my “before” pictures this morning. I am going to send them into the 200k transformation website and see what kind of progress I can make 🙂

Become a Fitness Cheapskate

It drives me crazy when people say they don’t have the money to get in shape – then don’t spend money on stuff you don’t need! People ask me all the time what I do to get my arm definition and the only weights I have at my apartment are some hand-me-down ankle weights and…

It’s a New Year!

I have never been so excited about January. Normally I dread the cold weather, and even though it isn’t my favorite, it is a great time to get my body in the best shape ever to show off in the summer. This morning I started off the week with a 1000 calorie workout I found…
