It probably isn’t much of a shock that there are lots of active people in Colorado. The weather and mountains simply draw these kinds of people. This weekend was a good example of how active friends got my butt moving.
I’ve been reading Lauren’s blog for a while since she is a DC-area blogger. So [...]
This morning’s boot camp was a leg-heavy day, with lots of lunges, squats and sprints. There was some upper body work in there too. It was a great workout and I’m hoping I’m a little sore tomorrow. Biking up the hills today was not fun today.
I was talking to one of the boot [...]
I’ve seen a lot of posts out there about why morning workouts rock and how to get in the habit of waking up for them.
I started working out in the morning again for a few reasons:
Boot camp is in the morning. Driving to the pool to swim with Nyema is pretty much [...]
I completed weekly goal #1 this morning and went to my second boot camp of the week. I was worried that bad weather was going to shut us down, but the rain held off. We did tons of lunges, squats, crunches, jumping jacks and some sprints. I know my legs are going to be feeling [...]
Today I was excited to start a new weekly tradition with a Sunday swim at the pool. However, much to my dismay, the pool was closed when I got there…even though there was nothing on the website about it being closed today.
The good news is that this bump in my plans pushed me [...]
I’ve been on Weight Watchers for a week, and the good news is that it didn’t feel very restrictive. I loved having 0 point fruits because if I was feeling hungry or snacky I was encouraged to eat fruit. This is great compared to before where some people might choose a 100 calorie pack instead of [...]
Today it was truly frigid outside with temps in the twenties but with serious wind that made it “feels like” less than 10*.
Because of that, I was extremely grateful that we were able to have boot camp indoors again. I was not grateful that Reggie decided to run us through an extremely tough lower [...]
Today was the toughest boot camp yet.
First, let me rewind a little bit. Wednesday night I skipped the Neil’s holiday party after-party to be a good responsible exerciser so I could get up for boot camp Thursday morning. Neil, however, went out and when he came home around 12:45 am I woke up and [...]
This week has been much better for me so far. I’ve been reminding myself that if I can’t change a situation that makes me unhappy, then there is no point thinking about it all the time. For now I’m trying to focus on the positive and make moves to change the situation.
Also, my day [...]
Today and has been a very long and full day. It started not-so-bright and early at my second boot camp class. The temps were below freezing when I left, so I drove to the class instead of biking. I kept trying to remind myself that 30-something degree weather isn’t so bad, considering I spent last [...]
