    It's Just Part Of My Day...

    My neighbor calls working out a chore... It's not something extra that I have to do everyday, that I have to try to make time for. It's part of my daily routine. It's as much a part of my day as waking up in the morning and going to work is. I know I have to be at the gym at...

    Running is my passion.

    I started off from a fat kid who sat on the couch all day to a runner who runs because the freedom makes me feel alive. It's something that I have grown to love. I first did running to lose weight. Which I did.. But then I realised the actual fun of it!!!! It just when in...

    For me working out is an outlet

    when I'm having bad days I push myself even harder. Not only does it relieve tension but I can work on my body while doing it. Today we had boot camp in the pouring rain outside and it was so exhilarating the burning pain while I did the workout as the rain fell on me , the...

    I started working out regularly a month ago,

    and I kind of love it! It's a great way to procrastinate, it makes me healthier and stronger, and makes me feel great afterwards. Only a month in, and my lungs can draw in deeper, fuller breaths, my muscles are bigger and stronger, and my resting heart rate is a few beats lower...

    Im not the kind of girl

    who just does light weights and does it go go check out guys and be checked out. I like to go hard, and sweat and lift more every time, and see the results as my body tones and changes. Im very competitive so if I go with a friend I have to do better and if I work out by myself...

    My family just left after a week-long visit.

    It was great seeing them, but I'm happy to be back into my routine. My sisters, bless their hearts, are not physically active. They garden and tend to their very pretty homes. But, when it came to moving storage boxes and climbing stairs, or kneeling and bending, they complained...

    3 of the gyms I have belonged to have gone under. I am currently at a smaller gym and they have cut classes like crazy. I felt the weight creeping up and had to do something. There is an extreme boot camp class. Almost elite. The same core group of women work out. I have...

    If there is one thing I like doing everyday is

    working out for 30 minutes when I get home from work. It gives me energy to burn off and it feels good at the same time. I pretty much work out 3 to 4 days a week at most.
