There’s no crying in weight lifting.

Okay, there is a little bit of crying. At least for me anyhow, and I’m not really a crier. But as I said before–this whole weight loss/get healthy journey just brings me to it.

“You want me to renounce my throne? I will. [calling out to all of you] From this moment on, I renounce my throne. I’m no longer the Queen of Cardio. I renounce my throne! [looking at all of you] Does this make you happy?” Okay, I stole that from Coming to America. Somewhat. That movie …

Marathon training, I’m just not that into you. So we’re done.

Wow. Happy 2013! I totally meant to post before the year was 12 days old. But long work weeks, many hours at the gym, updating  and corresponding on my FB page, Twitter, & Instagram, a bad head cold and sleeping have managed to take up of the previous two weeks! So here I am now. …

Januarians at the gym & the people that hate them.

With only a few days left in 2012, the time is near. JANUARY. But not just January…a group that some of you like to refer to as THE JANUARIANS. You know, the mass of people that purchase a gym membership as part of their New Year’s Resolution and in hordes, flock to their local gym …

A fresh prospective & gymtasticness.

I love how a new day can give you fresh prospective, make you feel better, and come to your senses again. I woke up on Thursday feeling a lot better after the whole DC Nike Half pity party I threw for myself the night before. There was just a lot of awesomeness going around: I …
