Chicago Perfect 10 Recap

      9 Comments on Chicago Perfect 10 Recap

The morning started bright and early.  We made our way from CL to Chicago fairly quickly.  Well, at least until we got closer to Navy Pier, then it was traffic central.  Race time was nearing and I knew I’d have to hit up the bathroom first, so I hopped out while my parents went on the hunt for parking. (Turns… Read more »

Boredom Buster Workout

      6 Comments on Boredom Buster Workout

It’s time to get ahead.  And I don’t mean anything political – the election is over and I’m sure I’m not alone in hoping all the political talk can stop and we can come together as a nation, no matter who you voted for or how you feel about Obama. What I’m talking about is my to-do list, my writing,… Read more »

I’m all about really great sweat-dripping workouts.  Clearly, I’m not a girl who is afraid to sweat.  In fact it’s the opposite, I like it!  (Unless it’s because of a grotesquely humid day in the middle of summer where you step outside and you’re immediately covered in an inch of sweat – I don’t like that so much.)

I mentioned a few times that it was a pretty long week with lots of work, but thankfully I was able to fit in all of my studies (though I would have preferred more) and a great week of workouts. And seeing as it was the last week of Courtney’s October yoga challenge, I’m happy to say I was successful… Read more »

Funny how that works, isn’t it?! 😉 Anyway, I’ve had a pretty amazing week of workouts – a few runs, some strength sessions, some cross training and my yoga goal! I (finally) decided to try one of the yoga classes at my gym this week. … Read more »

Fitness Friday & the Yoga Challenge

 While I’m sure many of you are happy that your week is drawing to a close, I’m smack dab in the middle of mine.  While I’m technically only working “part-time” I was scheduled for an extra shift this week, called in when someone was sick another day, and asked to come in an hour early to help with a catering… Read more »

Fitness Friday

I’m getting my butt kicked!  These workouts are deceivingly difficult.  I’m loving every moment but there’s definitely been a mind over matter struggle going on.  And if I’m completing (or trying to complete) them at home, that struggle doubles.  Apparently I need the gym for the extra bit of motivation to push me through my tougher workouts. But I’ve been… Read more »
