Today I ran my 2nd half marathon, the Madison Her Half Marathon.  The event that I’ve been training for since January 1st.  It’s been a long/quick six months, and not always easy nor as complete a training as I planned on, but it was rewarded.  I can say with full confidence that I will repeat this program I developed, and complete more of my scheduled workouts. (More on that later) I participated in the Weekend Experience for the Her Madison Half, knowing a little bit about it, but really knowing nothing.  One of my friends–and former client–ran it last year and convinced me to runRead More →

Hey there!! ICYMI Shaun Week is coming!  It’s also my birthday week.  I’m super excited to be kicking off my birthday week with Shaun. Truth be told, Shaun is probably my favorite trainer.  I love the bootcamp style workouts.  I really miss teaching INSANITY classes.  I am SUPER excited to have new workouts from him.  Yes, CIZE is new, but honestly I’m not into dance workouts.  I actually enjoy burpees, thank you. Shaun Week: Insane Focus is going to be in the style of Focus T25 (INSANITY precursor) and INSANITY.  The high intensity interval training (HIIT) is such an AWESOME way to burn fat andRead More →

 Monday is the day to order the 21 Day Fix!  It’s a revolutionary portion control system that will teach you how much to eat, giving you not only a visual, but a tangible way to learn portion control.  I’m so excited to have that system.  It’s going to be so helpful–just fill up the container with WHATEVER food you want in that food group and that’s what you can eat.  No food is off limits!  How cool is that?  You want some chocolate?  Put it in your container.  You want a glass of wine?  Ok!  The plan will tell you how you can have itRead More →

BeachBody is doing it again!  We have revolutionized fitness with 25 minute workouts with Focus T25, then with 30 minute workouts with P90X3 and its nutrition guide (which teaches you HOW to eat instead of telling you WHAT to eat).  And starting February 3 we will teach you HOW MUCH to eat, without weighting, counting calories, etc.  All you do is put food in the containers provided, and you can eat WHATEVER YOU WANT, as long as it fits in the containers.  We do this with our NEW program: The 21 Day Fix. What is this?  Well, it’s from up-and-comer fitness celebrity and NPC BikiniRead More →

We finished week 2 of P90X3 today. It feels really good to have finished week 2. One more week of this schedule, a transition week, then a new block of workouts. I am much stronger in my push ups, which is really nice. Between The Challenge and the Warrior workouts, holy cow I don’t have a choice but to get stronger! I feel good, I feel like I’m getting more agile and gaining muscle, which is my goal. P90X3 is a complete workout in 30 minutes a day. It has me sweating and working hard. It’s only 30 minutes, so pushing myself is easier becauseRead More →
