My First Color Run

Competitive Me? I’m not a competitive person. Well, that’s not completely true. I compete with myself to continue to become better at everything I do but I don’t find it fun to compete with other people. Growing up, I enjoyed activities that were basically individual but in a group setting (like dance and martial arts)….

Channeling Jane Fonda

First, I just want to say that I’m sitting on my deck, looking at my newly planted flowers, drinking coffee out of my Harry Potter mug (and let’s face it, that’s the only way to drink coffee), listening to the birds chirp, feeling the light breeze, and loving that I am able to spend my…

Punk Rope

On Sunday, April 27th I added a Punk Rope certification to my fitness resume! A social media friend posted about taking a class in New York and I immediately asked, “what is that?” He said it was a really fun fitness class that jumped rope. My interest was piqued so I checked out their website…

Happy Days

Yes, today is Monday and yes, today I’m happy! The past few posts have been kind of heavy so I wanted to write a little lighter today. As I mentioned in Roar, I thought about going back on medication to help me through all the things I’m dealing with and decided that doing so is for…

The Hill

Before I describe my outdoor workout that I promised in my last post called “Killer Kicks”,  I want to talk about the hill. If you follow me on Twitter and/or Instagram (both names are “TheFitDiva”) you may have seen tweets or pictures of it. My previous personal trainer, Edna, originally told me about this crazy hill and if…

Rewards

Hey Guys! Sorry for not updating for a few weeks; life has been pretty stressful. Don’t worry, this will not be a doom and gloom post because a bunch of positive things have happened as well so I’m going to focus on those!  🙂 The main stressful event happened about a month ago and several…

School’s Out for the Summer!

I am thoroughly enjoying this moment at Starbucks right now. I’m sitting at “my” table, I have a cup of coffee, and “The Phantom of the Opera” is playing in the background. I’m having a little trouble focusing on how to word this blog but that’s ok; I’m not stressing over it.  Yesterday was my…

Quote This

I’m all for motivation. When I started my blog I had a “Motivational Monday” post. I also have a Pinterest board full of quotes. Most of them are for exercise and eating healthy but not all of them. I’ll be honest, I’ve never gone right to the gym because I read a quote that motivated…

Cooking and Pinterest and Workouts…Oh My!

It feels so good to be blogging again! It’s been longer than I wanted and today I planned to write no matter what!  As you can see from my blog name, I’ve been a busy little bee. It’s been a very good busy though. Apparently I’ve been hit by some creative mojo, which comes in…

Zombie Me

Oh man, where do I begin? This past week has been crazy and this coming week will be the same. I just need to remember to breath and take it day by day.  As I said in my last blog, I started a new training system. I made it through 2 days instead of the…
