Prescribed Day-o-Rest

I put in a lot of work this week and definitely pushed my body to the limit.  I ache almost everywhere and my flexibility is out the window at the moment.  Both Terry Stokes & the trainers at Body Blocks have prescribed a day off. A rigorous workout schedule and dramatic reduction in my Body … Continue reading

Time for some changes…

I am stuck at 125.5lbs.  Easter brunch didn’t help me lose any weight for sure, but I don’t think it really set me too far back.  I have been in a rut.  Don’t fret…it is being addressed! This week I am really bumping up my workouts. This weeks training schedule: Monday: a solid 2 hours … Continue reading

Listen to your body

It’s extremely important to push yourself to limits to reach your goals.  It’s even more important to pay attention to what your body is telling you during that process. There is a huge difference between being “uncomfortable” and over doing it.  Right now I am training harder than I’ve trained in my life, but more … Continue reading

Hobb-Nobbing Help…

Owning a business and working in sales I have to hit up networking events like its my job… because it is.  During the start of my training process attending these events was not pleasant.  A few drinks always help get you in the mood to make friends.  It loosens you up a bit and makes … Continue reading

I made my Best Fitness debut last night at 930PM.  It’s a bit daunting, but I haven’t … Continue reading

Re-Inspired and it feels so good…

Today was one of those days where you wake up and from the get-go you know its going to be a flippin’ awesome day.  Okay, well maybe it wasn’t right from the get-go as I was still feeling a tad under-the-weather (I was sick all weekend ::sad face::).  But at some point today, when my … Continue reading

Harsh Realities…

I have made incredible progress over the last month and a half.  People tell me I look great.  And for the first time in a long time I feel great. Unfortunately I have only 10 more weeks to make this work and I feel as if I’ve reached that point that everyone dreads in their … Continue reading
