Progression is a Verb, Baby cakes!

You may not see progress, but if you are working, you are progressing. Progress take assessing and re-assessing. If you truly feel that you are not changing, then adjust. 1) Are you doing all that you can do? 2) Are you measuring yourself, jotting down, weight, measurements, looking at body fat? 3) Did you take…

Clean Slate

When I was a kid, my brother and my sisters and I would fight and we would fight often.  We would have so much fun together, but eventually we would get into these downright full on brawls.  We would be at each others throats.  Plus, we would call each other every name possible.  The one…

Oh my oh my! Did my head get bigger or did my arms get toned?

One day my arms got toned.  After a log of hard work, time and diet it happened.  It didn’t happen overnight but it did. Well, there’s plenty of ways to get toned arms, but first overall body weight is a factor on how your arms would look.  If your body fat and body mass is…

It’s a Hot Chocolate Day

It’s not particularly cold here but an extremely stressful day calls for a warm cup of hot chocolate. As usual, this doesn’t follow the diet “rules”.  Still, I have been fasting all day ’til dinner having only an apple and some raw veggies (what’s allowed). I have since the Big Breakfast diet, which I found…

Yeah you’d think you learned your lesson Working…

Yeah, you’d think you learned your lesson. Working hard, doing more difficult hard workouts, thinking you are invincible.  But alas, rest is in order.  You caught the bug.  You are home sick.  Remember that for your body to have a proper recovery period, it’s important to rest.  Don’t be one of those people. Don’t tough…

Back to My Usual Tricks

I’m boxing my little butt off!  And loving it.   Anyhow, the sprints, the gravity machine, the weights are making me feel like I’m back to normal since my hiatus from vacation, frolicking at the beach, eating ice cream, eating buttery grilled turkey sandwiches filled with cheese and sauerkraut and loving every second of it.  Now,…

Mod Is Back!

I’ve always loved the look of mod.  The flipped up hair, the glasses the bold blocks of color, the stripes.  I guess you imagine that era and how cool things were back then. Well apparently MOD is back.  I’ll be bringing out my MOD glasses, looking for anything mod.  I’m already listening to semi mod…

Race it, Baby!

Lovely Allyson Felix has won two Olympic silver medals and three from world championships in the 200m.  Although she’s never won an Olympic gold, she is still very impressive. No gold medals coming my way.  I’m not a runner nor a real sprinter. I have a mild case exercise induced asthma. If I run too…

Triple Threat Class

I wasn’t really sure why these guys were set up outside.  Anyhow, looks like a great view on top of a city. The triple threat class went well today.  We did spin for about 20 minutes…a mix of heavy and fast spins.  You can do a good sprint and be drenching in sweat if you…

Make it Brighter

The weather in Carlsbad was hot a couple weeks ago and now has changed to a moody, cloudy, brooding weather that everyone has been waiting for. The sky is dark in the morning and is casting a greyish covering. While some claim that their mood does not change with the weather, I believe it has….
