Baby Steps in the Kitchen

Happy Sunday Funday! I’ve wanted to post earlier this week but I had a hard time thinking of something that was worth sharing. Inspiration comes in funny and unexpected places sometimes. I was reading the February issue of “Better Homes and Gardens” (stop laughing, I’m not that old!) and there was a small, as in…

Rest Day

Rest days should be restful, right? This became a forced rest day because I’m without a car so I can’t really go anywhere. Last night I was  looking forward to it. I worked hard at the gym over the weekend and I thought it would be nice to have a slow start to my day….

Video Killed the Radio Star

Hey Everyone!! I just wanted to let you know that my first workout videos are posted!! They’re short; I wanted to just fool around with it today but click on my “video” tab and take a look! I’ll continue to post but if there is anything you’d like to see, please let me know!

“Eat it, just eat it” (Weird Al)

Dazed and Confused

Piles of newspapers as high as an elephants eye, boxes and bags to the ceiling, 15 broken lamps, clocks, dolls, trash bags, rotting food, dead mice. My husband was watching “Hoarders” the other night on TV. I was involved in something else so I wasn’t really paying that much attention. Every once in a while…

Hell no, we won’t go!

I ate breakfast and would go to the gym in an hour like I usually do when I’m home. Once I got involved in catching up on 2 days worth of my soap then farted around on the computer, I really wasn’t in the mood. I kept thinking if all the things I could do…

Rock On!

Ok, who out there doesn’t like music? Anyone? Didn’t think so…Music is such a good motivator and can really help you when you’re working out at the gym or home. Sometimes when I feel like I just can’t lift the barbell one more centimeter or take one more step on the elliptical, a high energy…

Motivation-Not so Much

Last week was a bad week. There wasn’t anything terrible that happened to make it bad week but I just felt “off.” My schedule was more crazy then usual and I had a hard time trying to fit in time to go the gym. I felt very tired and had a sore arm from a…

Show Off Your Shoulders!

Reasons to Build Your Shoulders: You look sexy in spaghetti straps You’d put Michelle Obama’s arms to shame (sorry, Michelle but it’s true) You have more strength to paint a ceiling (trust me) You can lift your child over your head with less discomfort
