My November Running Playlist + I Did It! #icandothis

I DID IT! Monday’s run was so great — I really tried to stay at a steady pace the whole 47 minutes and I ended up reaching — and exceeding — my goal distance of 4 miles! Wooo! I ran 4.12 miles! That definitely blows away my best time of 3.96! Tuesday night I was […]

Can you believe we’ve been on our One Small Change Challenge for so long now? Some of you may have started at the beginning […]

Challenging Myself With One Small Change #onesmallchange

I was compensated by Puritan’s Pride for this post.  All opinions expressed here are my own.  A few weeks ago, I shared a little bit about my struggle with getting motivated to exercise and my promise to make one small change by getting back on track with my fitness. Since then, I’ve been trying to up […]

I Pledge to make One Small Change. What’s yours? #OneSmallChange

There is no use in denying it, over the past 2 years,  I have really let myself go. Two years ago, I was going to my favorite aerobics class at least three times a week, taking walks a few times a week and generally keeping myself quite active. These days, I can barely drag myself to […]

DDP Yoga Review – It Ain’t Your Mama’s Yoga!

Well, it may not be MY Mama’s yoga, but this mama is sure having fun with the DDP Yoga kit that I recently received for review! You may remember that I am taking my weight loss seriously and I’ve been tracking my workouts since late February. While they have been sporadic, April is turning out […]

I hate you elliptical. A workout whine session.

So, the elliptical machine and I are in a love hate relationship right now. I swear that after 45 minutes of awkward elliptical-ing, I have sweated buckets. Plus, it’s not like I’m taking the easiest program. No, I am not. I’ve tried Cardio, Hill (kill me), strength and interval settings from 30 minutes to 45 […]

Back to reality – plus my Workout Playlist

Everything has been going great with my new workout schedule! Except for the past week of sickness where you’ll notice an absence of working out on my part, blah. I really dislike being sick. Spending the last 4 days or so in my pjs, plus missing a few days of working out really put a […]

Holding myself accountable when Weight & Anxiety hold me back

This is a post that I’ve mulled over for a while now. I like to keep the blog upbeat but sometimes, I just need to get things out. So since this is my space.. here goes! Over the past year and a half, I have become lax and lazy about my fitness. Instead of going […]

Goals: My 2013-2014 Workout Record #gettingfit #fitness

I am kicking my butt into gear and holding myself accountable by keeping track with this workout record. I’ll be keeping notes below each workout table and just using this post throughout the year as a tool to hopefully keep myself motivated. And, to remind myself that I can do it! While I am starting […]

HERSHEY’S Track & Field Games 2011

Exercise is something that I am usually only focused on as part of my routine. Too often I forget that my kids may not be getting all of the physical activity that they should. With video games, television and school taking up most of their free time, it’s so important for us to try and […]

60 day SlimDown System with Moms Into Fitness creator Lindsay Brin

Even though I’ve said before that I don’t do the whole new year resolution thing, that doesn’t mean I don’t have personal goals for myself each year. Like so many people, one of my top priorities is usually achieving some kind of weight loss within the next year. It may be that I need to […]

Reminding myself why need Jazzercise

I was never one for regular exercise, I mean I was already active enough. I ran after my children, spent a lot of time gardening, walked to the stop sign and back every couple of days and just generally led an active life. After going through treatments for cervical cancer I kind of lost some […]
