Summer Goals

  Last summer I decided to start running as a challenge to myself.  After a couple days, running became my therapy.  I would get up before sunrise, drive down to the beach, run a couple miles, take pics of the sun coming up over the ocean and think about how lucky I was to live here…

Daylight Savings Time = More Time To Run!

Like most people I have a love/hate relationship with daylight savings time.  In the fall when it’s time to “fall back” an hour I welcome the extra time but the lack of daylight is a downer.  It’s as if someone is telling us it’s time to hibernate for the next four months and eat comforting…

Gratitude

I feel as though people or experiences are brought into your life for a reason.  They teach us something about others and ourselves.  Sometimes learning about others makes us feel not so alone in the world. When I started Zone 360 at Ultimate Fit Zone I was shy, unsure of what I was getting into…

Falling Off the Wagon

  It’s been atleast two weeks since I’ve blogged and my poor excuse has been because I feel like a failure. All the holiday goodies and birthday treats have certainly caught up with me. I’ve even discovered Smashburger near my office which is not good. Don’t get me wrong, it’s amazing, but not healthy. So…

Happy 100!

It’s the end of 2013 which is a good time to reflect on what has happened and where I’m going. First off, this is my 100th blog. I never thought I had 100 blogs in me let alone people who continue to follow. So, thank you to all of you who read my blog! I…

May The Force Be With You

This year's Christmas with the family was extra special.  In year's past I just went along with the family events feeling bad about myself but this year I enjoyed every moment.  Opening gifts with the family, hosting Christmas Eve and seeing extended family has been so enjoyable.  I'm not sure if it's my age or…

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…
