    Ok so I know you aren't supposed to say this,

    but it's the truth. I work out more for my husband than for me. I mean I love how working out makes me feel, and it's good for my health and all of that, I know. And my husband has never told me I should work out or anything like that, don't get me wrong. But when I work out and...

    I do it mainly for weight loss

    but it does also make me feel good after having a good workout session. I do an hour of cardio 3-4 times a week.

    I work out more than most,

    but not as much as some. It’s enjoyable for me and puts me in a good mood. Feeling sore from a good workout is worth it. And when I start to feel myself get stronger, or see a person checking me out for a bit longer than what is polite…THAT is what keeps me going with a...

    On A Mission

    I have been athletic since I was in grade school. I was on the track team, a cheerleader, gymnastics, rode my bike, and did most anything that kept me moving from yard work, swimming, and dancing. In my early 20's I was a high impact aerobics instructor. During the next 2...

    I don't work out because I hate the way my body

    looks or I want to have an ideal body. I just work out because it feels good, I like to know that I am taking care of myself. Its a great sensation to wake up sore the next day and know that I pushed my limits.

    Everyday. Every Morning.

    5:09 A.M. I wake up. Change into my workout clothes. Run 4 miles. Finish with an intense workout. Then, I start my day feeling healthy and fit.

    Getting shredded and trying to get to normal

    size. Glad I'm all natural or I think I would have been way smaller after a month of not working out.

    Well I'm finally getting back into working out.

    I'm training for a spartan Race. Honestly I'm nervous, but I'm excited. I haven't trained for anything before, I've done the little just enough to sweat and cardio. But this time I'm adding weight training to cardio, I need to build some muscle and I'm seriously excited for...

    Love H.I.I.T. workouts!

    I especially love doing them after dinner time in the evenings so I feel much more relaxed afterward! Then to tpo it all off- a nice hot shower. It's the simple things :) H.I.I.T. workouts are so great and take barely 20 minutes out of your day, I highly suggest them! Short...

    The personal trainer changed up my routine

    today. She used a tabata style methodology instead of straight strength training. For example, I do usually do 3 sets of squats using the smith machine. Today she cut the weight to 60% and upped the sets to 8 with no set number of reps. Each set was 20 seconds of squats and 10...

    Daily Basis

    It's what I do. I'm an athlete and I run an average of 9-11 miles every day. As a part of my warm up I do push ups and sit ups as well. Lately I've been on a diet and I've lost 5 lbs. I've been doing extra sit ups as well and Im so proud of my new slightly protruding abs that I...

    Recently joined a gym with my friend

    and we've been doing a lot of plyo. I used to just do Insanity or workout to online exercise vids at home, but I guess I don't get the same motivation I do when I work out with someone at a gym. I'm not "fat" nor do I think of myself as "fat" but I've just wanted to maintain...
