Inspiration

Throughout this process I've tried to connect with something or someone who inspires me to push myself.  Most of the time those people have reached out to me to send me words of encouragement.  I carry each one of you to my classes and to the kitchen trying to make good decisions. Saturday night I…

Anchorman and Pain?

I have been sore for a few days after Monday’s workout.  My abs (yes, I have abs under that flab) kill when I laugh which I do often.  Yesterday at work my friend Mel was reciting lines from Anchorman, “I love lamp”. This of course cracked me up which didn’t help….at all.  But that means…

Rock Out

A big part of my life has been about music.  I could hangout and just listen to music all day and have spent many hours at concerts just soaking it all in.  My earliest memory of music I have is driving around with my stepdad listening to 101.5 in New Jersey and he would tell…

Perk Me Up!

On Monday night I had my Zone 360 class at Ultimate Fit Zone.  On my way I popped into 7-11 and bought a 5 Hour Energy drink to help me push through the class.  I’ve heard of people doing a shot of espresso before working out but thought that would irritate my stomach and figured…

Curse You Wall Balls

Wall Balls:  What are they and what do they do? As you may recall from Day 1 of my blog I referred to them as "shitty balls" because they almost made day 1 my last day.  Basically you have a medicine ball that is 10 - 20 pounds (depending on what you can handle), use…

Amazeballs

Today, I was triumphant! I got my butt into class, thought positive, and pushed into beast mode. I can't quite put my finger on what exercises I'm better at over others but I was so happy that I got through class pushing at 100% and only came in 4th to last. The workout was was…

AMRAP Makes Me Want To Roll Over and Die

On Monday I got back into my weekday routine at the gym.  I was happy to see my friends and get a good workout in.  I always feel so much better after a good workout.  I feel like I've accomplished more than I could the day before. Until I met AMRAP.  Oh dear God who…

It’s Greek To Me!

Keeping on point with your diet is hard enough but what do you do when you have cravings for the bad stuff?  I have cravings all the time like Windmill hot dogs, cheese fries, pasta, bread before the pasta, etc!  I don't want to fail so I've found alternatives to SOME of these cravings that…

Food On The Go

When I started going through this new regiment of working out and changing my eating habits I was gung ho about following the diet that I was given.  One thing I found was the amount of time it takes to prepare.  I go to two different stores for food to save money and then bring…

Setback

In the last week I've been having an issue with my hip/lower back.  I feel a pain in my hip and it shoots down my leg and makes it hard to stand on both feet. Getting ready for work this morning was difficult....I could barely get my pants on because balancing on my left leg…
