Good Friday leads to a workout plan.

I hope everyone is enjoying Good Friday! I’ve been trying to get things organized in my house because it’s been complete chaos. Today I’ve been working on my office because I don’t actually work in here. I usually end up working on the couch and not much work gets accomplished there. Maybe when I get everything organized I’ll share a picture but right now, I’m just too embarrassed.

After a rest day yesterday, I was glad to be back in the game today! Nothing like pushing people through a great workout at 5am. Have a great day! #fitfam #fitfluential #ffcheckin
I’ve been sporting one calf sleeve all week because I have a peroneal tendon strain. I rolled my ankle a bit last week during the trail run and it’s still kind of bugging me now. The one calf sleeve thing has been helping but I know I need to get back to icing it.

This week I’ve been really trying to get back on schedule. Lately I’ve fallen off of a schedule and not planning my workouts and such. I haven’t been a good fitness inspiration or motivation to anyone lately. I do apologize for that. I use to always have a plan but then I started deviating from the plan and sometimes just pushing workouts to another time. Everything was much better when I had everything worked out ahead of time. I guess it’s not different than meal prepping, right? It’s just a workout plan…and I need to stick to it.


This morning I went to the gym to do some weights and strength. There were no classes this morning because it’s Good Friday so I toted my iPad to the gym with me and did a Tone It Up Beach Barre workout! I decided to get out of the house to do this workout because I need to create some separate spaces. Plus, there is more variety of weights and dumbbells at the gym so the workout was a little different this morning. It kind of kicked my booty. After I was done with that, I opted to do a little running on the treadmill. I wanted to get in a full 30 minutes of running but that didn’t happen, I only got 26 minutes in. And I ran without my watch today so I could just enjoy it.

I’m not doing much this weekend except for spending some time with Willie and continuing to tackle my office. Yep, I’m not running a race even though I would love to be doing so this weekend.

Do you have any big plans for Easter weekend?  Are you going to workout today?

Five steps to become more proactive

Five steps to become more proactive

Proactive, that’s the word of the week.  Last night I posted about the perks of being proactive and I’m sure a lot of you missed that post.  Here’s your chance to go back and read it before you continue with this post. Are you a proactive or reactive person? Do you let situations control your life? I like to think I’m a proactive person NOW but I spent many years being reactive.  That wasn’t a good place to be.  I didn’t realize this until later in life but that is when I decided to make a change.  A few years…

Back To The Basics: So you want to lose the weight. Now what?

Losing a significant amount of weight is a huge task so if you’re deciding to take on the battle, congrats to you. We woke up one day and just decided to lose the weight, but I don’t think we were very smart about the process. This is your chance to learn from our mistakes. You know the commercials always say “consult with a doctor before engaging in any physical activity or diet plan?” You should definitely do that because we did NOT and it opened up a huge can of worms for us. It took a lot for me to…
