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…

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…

I AM A Rockstar

Today was Week 4 Day 1 and I can't believe I got through it all.  I completed 2 rounds of about 7 stations varying in pushing the sled then 5 burpees, squats with bicep curls, skaters on the TRX, slamming the medicine ball, rowing, pushups on the bosu, and another medicine ball workout. Then we…

TRX + Boot Camp = Hell on Earth

As I complete my 3rd week of classes tonight I am hoping and praying for an easier night of boot camp at Ultimate Fit Zone's Zone 360 class.  Last night I started a new class called T360 which combines TRX suspension training and Zone 360 boot camp. TRX was created by a Navy Seal (if…

Food: Take 2

I get a lot of questions about food. What do you eat everyday?  What do you eat when you're out? It took everything in me not to drive to the Windmill and get a hot dog and cheese fries yesterday.  I wanted it so bad and I felt so pathetic.  I have been very focused…

Far From Perfect; Closer to Puke

I feel as though my recent posts have been too fluffy and wanted to remind you that I'm far from perfect.  Tonight's class was super tough and I started to feel lightheaded.  It could have been lack of protein today or just the up and down movement but either way I felt discouraged. Here are…

What Is My Workout?

I realized recently that i haven't been very informative about what my workout regiment is and let you know!  I've been talking a lot about Zone 360 in but what is it!?  The best description is like a boot camp.  Zone 360 has been designed to target every muscle in your body through interval training, strength training,…

Food!!

I love cooking especially during the holidays.  In fact, for Christmas Eve I cooked everything from Ina Garten's recipes.  Ina, better known as the Barefoot Contessa, cooks mostly French for entertaining which means butter, cream and oil.  These were my 3 food groups and I was a huge fan of carbs! Taking on this change…
