Never Give Up

In August I started back at Ultimate Fit Zone .  It was going really well three weeks and then I went on a trip to Bermuda.  I packed my gym clothes for the trip and visited the gym the first day to get acclimated but never worked out. I returned from my trip and took off another…

What Are You Waiting For?

The other day I was sitting on the beach with my friend explaining how hard the dating scene is.  I had been on a couple dates and had a couple coming up.  Unfortunately, the one had cancelled our 2nd date the day before due to work schedule which is totally understandable. Since I'm an open book I have to…

Unmotivated and Feeling Plump

Having taken a break from my boot camp due to my stress fracture has left me unmotivated and feeling plump.  I remember being so bummed when the doctor told me to take a four week break.   Now  that two weeks have passed and running hasn't caused me any pain, I just don't want to go. Maybe…

The Hot Doc and The Foot

Last Saturday I started to feel a pain on the top of my foot when I flexed my toes and while walking.  I couldn't think of anything I had done to it to make it hurt.  I ended up making an appointment with an orthopedist to get it checked out because I don't want to…

My Purpose

Tonight I returned to boot camp class.  It is a high interval, multi-dimensional, cross training exercise program.  I haven't done the class since June and I was very nervous because I didn't know if I could do it again.  Luckily, I made out great and I think running had a huge part to do with it.…

I’m Baaack

If you've been following my blog for a while now you know how much I've switched up my fitness routines.  I first started out at the Ultimate Fit Zone in Ocean, NJ doing boot camp classes.  I met some amazing people both in the classes and the trainers. Then warm weather swept in and I…

Don’t Let The Fear Break You

Fear:  (noun) a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain,etc., whether the threat is real or imagined. Last week my Aunt Kathy (mother of a Navy SEAL) shared a speech with me that Adm. Eric T. Olson of the Navy SEALs had given at a college graduation. (Click Here to read)  The overall message, in my opinion, is not letting the fear break you. It really stuck with me because I…

Guilt and Moving Forward

Lately I've been feeling less and less motivated to stick to my routine and wanting to break away from it and throw in something new.  I decided to try out the "couch to 5k" (C25K) program for the summer just to get outside and change things up. Sunday morning I got up and grabbed my…

Lessons Learned From New Beginnings

When I began this blog and my overall journey my intent was to hold myself accountable and have something to look back on to remind me of how far I came.  By sharing my fears, struggles and triumphs it never crossed my mind that this would connect me to people I already know on a…

One Size Down!!

Today's workout was pretty rough but I feel amazing!!  We had a round of movements to do like 10 renegade rows, 15 ball slams, 20 air squats and 10 dumbbell pushes for 3 minutes.  We took 1 minute rest then another round until we did it 6 times. I was sweating buckets but afterward I…
