    Okay so...... Hiking is getting rough on my

    lower body. Hips, knees, feet...... Well since my job requires so much travel, it is hard to get a good workout in. So on non travel days I work out at Lunch and again after work. This week I bagged the travel and actually got in 9 workouts! So my point is there is always a way...

    When I go to the gym,

    I feel that my stress is gone; although I maybe don't like so much exercising, but it's really important for us to go and exercise often.

    Not really, but I try to convince myself.

    I wish I was continuously motivated and upbeat about it and admire those who are.

    Being a 52 year old single mom can be a bit

    lonely but I'm so lucky to have a gorgeous 20 year old daughter that will still go workout and go to yoga with her mama.

    The best feeling in the world is being sore

    after a good workout. It means you accomplished something.

    I rarely do Zumba though.

    I feel like a grandma everytime I do it. But I do the Les Mills BodyCombat for my cardio and this is by far my favorite part evert. I like it since strong legs are very important to me and my being. I have to walk around and stand for some couple of hours at work. In...

    If you're at the gym looking like this,

    I hate you. Go home. You're done. Yes, I'm jealous that your genetics allowed you to be naturally thin. And maybe you did have to work for your muscle tone, but you're making me feel bad over here trying to run off my genetics. πŸ˜’

    I started 4 months ago

    and I must say I feel a lot better now then before. I have upper body and leg muscle but I still need to work on my stomach area. So I will need to do more cardio and such. The gym helps me forget my past that has haunted me for the longest time. To the point I don't know who...

    I joined the gym in October

    and have never been happier about a decision! Since joining I've felt like I've found my personal safe haven, where I can think about everything, or nothing. Something about the gym that I find feels so warm and welcoming!
