Had to cut my workout short today because of the weather. What are you gonna do? At least shoveling snow can be counted as a workout- in my book anyway. I will make this post brief as well, because I am in need of a good nights sleep- and want to get to the gym… Continue reading #weatherproblems
Yesterday was our 6th wedding anniversary. We went to Niagara Falls Friday into Saturday. I did not get time to workout Friday- I went to work all day, got out late and then we headed straight there. Saturday, we did some walking, but I slept horribly in the hotel, and due to the weather we… Continue reading What a weekend.
When I workout before work and then work all day it is hard to get motivation to blog. Today I was just busy with appointments and life. Wednesday I focused on lower body, with some upper body mixed in as well as abs. I began with rowing and my usual warm up. Then did 3… Continue reading Wednesday’s and Thursday’s workouts.
Today’s workout was tough. Kicked my own butt and my lovely friend Lynn’s butt who joined me. Sometimes she joins me for a little bit-o-fun! She deserves a post to herself one day. What a beautiful person, and an inspiration to many! As usual we started with a usual row and basic warm up. For… Continue reading Just another manic monday (not really)
Besides adequate sleep, rest, tough calluses, healthy foods, a great teacher and impeccable form there are a few necessary items to be successful when competing/ working out with bells. If you don’t your wrists will be super sore and bruised (maybe swollen), your hands torn, and your grip suffering. I think grip is one of… Continue reading Kettlebell essentials.
I love Saturday morning workouts. Getting to the gym before anyone else, knowing that I will lift more in this hour than most people lift all week. I focused strictly on my long cycle lift after a short warm up, swings, snatches, and push-ups. I love push-ups. What an easy and effective and simple exercise.… Continue reading saturday lift.
Ran 2.25 miles, did the elliptical and sat in the sauna today after an exhausting day at work. I have missed running and can’t wait to log some serious mileage. Tomorrow I will be lifting in the morning before work. It’s been a crazy week and I am finally feeling almost normal. Good night!
Lifted today. It felt good. I still have this cough and laryngitis but I made myself go to the gym. After a 4 minute row and warm up I got into it. I did turkish get-ups with the 12 and 16. I have done them with the 20 and 22 but I feel like my… Continue reading i am not delicate.
Today, I woke up with blood dripping out of my nose, this stupid cough and no voice. Needless to say, I did not venture to church. I let myself sleep a long while longer. I did finally make it to the gym for some cardio. I kept it pretty short because I have not been… Continue reading running & yoga
Today marks 7 weeks until the First Annual Pan American Kettlebell Sport Championship in Columbus, Ohio. This competition is being organized by the AKA. I would like to go. Even with this lingering cold, I should be ready, for either the 24kg or 20 kg bell. The problem I have with this competition, is really… Continue reading 7 weeks.
