Elliptical Machine: Tips Plus Workout Roundup!

elliptical workout roundup

  I had big plans to take a Pure Barre Platform class yesterday. Big plans I tell you! But, as I mentioned in Thursday’s post, the Pure Barre Platform class for yesterday was sold out. The wait list was full and even though I checked for a spot through Saturday afternoon, one never popped up open for me. I […]

How To Add Variety To A Repetitive Workout Routine

how to add variety to your running and workout routine

  I couldn’t agree more with this post from Pure Barre. I wanted to talk about our workout routines and finding variety in what can seem like a repetitive schedule. I am routine by nature and thrive from keeping to my schedule, especially my morning schedule. I always workout in the morning and I look forward to […]

I Joined The Gym – Now What?

joined the gym

  I remember when I first going the gym. A few months before my 18th birthday, I remember my friend inviting me to join the gym with her. Joining a gym was a fairly new concept to me. You know, the whole exercise because you want to thing. I always hated gym class (and fainted […]

Why I Signed Up For Pure Barre

  Allow me to give you a glimpse at what it is like to have a conversation with my son: My son: So what did you do today while I was at camp? Me: Aside from writing and errands, I took a barre class. My son: Exercising with a bar? Are you training to be stripper now? […]

Bust Cubby Giveaway!

You know it is fall when you have a hard time peeling yourself out of your comfy bed and pajamas in fear of the cold air and chill that occurs when getting dressed. Yesterday morning I quickly contemplated the unplanned rest day idea. I was cold, I was tired and I might have even been a […]

Shaking It Up

I am so glad it is Friday…and not for the reasons you would think. Confession: I am so glad it is Friday because that means it is almost Monday – which is the first day of school. I apologize for breezing past your weekend but if you have children who have yet to start school you understand, […]

Robert McAvoy 5 Mile Race Recap (2013)

When I turned 35 a few months ago, I entered a new age bracket. And, I have concluded that checking the 35-39 box isn’t half bad. I decided at the last minute to run the Robert McAvoy 5-mile race in Long Beach yesterday morning and actually finished second for my age group. The weather was icky, sticky and misty. The boardwalk […]

Compromise Meals

I am not perfect. I know I know, this may come as a shock to you all. But, I cannot tell a lie, I have some faults. You would think that once I became an adult, and then a mother, I would have learned how to probably open a package. And, not only learn how, […]

Happy Meals

I have big plans for this last day of July. That’s right. I intend to bless Lifetime Fitness with my presence this morning. I decided I might as well live it up on this July 31st because as of tomorrow, August 1st, my membership is officially frozen. I may take a spin class or a kickboxing class […]

Sunday Recap – Crosstrain and Cheesecake

Rise and shine people, time to start the week! I am getting ready to go for my morning run shortly. I forced myself to cross train yesterday because I realized I have been running every day without many elliptical or spin days in between. But I know me. I know that there is always a chance that as […]

Room For Improvement

Happy Friday! I know I know, I can’t believe it is Friday either. I am totally thrown off since yesterday was July 4th and felt like  the weekend. If I ever doubted my theory and favorite slogan of “Everything Happens for a Reason” I am a firm believer now. Remember how the other day I said […]

Pardon Me While I Rant

Fairway is still toying with me. I am not at all amused and will simply be purchasing my granny smith apples somewhere else. I shop at 5 different grocery stores Fairway, do you hear me? So don’t think I am any more loyal to you than the next store down the block. Especially if you […]
