Winter WINE-ing

Who's ready for SPRING? I'm already channeling warmer weather,  flip-flops and tan lines. Winter is sooo hard! I become calloused for motivation.  Getting out of bed for work on the cold, rainy, dismal winter days is worse than domestic manual labor. I literally have to pep talk myself to toss back the covers and wake… Continue reading Winter WINE-ing

EXIT

How is everyone doing this last day in January.  Can you believe it's almost FEBRUARY? Last year I was challenged by a friend and workout warrior to participate in a "one word for the year" challenge.  With fierce eagerness, I tackled this word like I had a tiger in my tank.  I fell in love… Continue reading EXIT

Report Cards

I was not a stellar stand out superior student.  The last time my report card had a sea of A's, was in elementary school.  But before all of you brainiacs label me dumb please keep reading. I honorably held a strong A-B, with the occasional C in math, sort of report card.  And...unlike most of… Continue reading Report Cards

Panty lines

In girl world, pantry lines are a serious crime. Any sign of a crease or outline of an undergarment is a forbidden felony in this day and age. But what's a girl to do in the workout world?

What to expect when you’re working out?

The second the doctor confirmed what the home pregnancy test had already revealed, I flew out of the office to the nearest book store to purchase the ever so coveted "What to expect when you're expecting!"  This was way way back in the day, circa 2002, before I had a smart phone and Amazon Prime. … Continue reading What to expect when you’re working out?

What is VIRTUAL TRAINING?

Just because you can't physically get to me doesn't mean you can get lean!!! I wish we lived closer to each other so I could come workout with you.

Party People

It's party time with a whoopie tee doo and a dickery dock. The lights are strung, some presents are ordered and on their way and just maybe a few are wrapped under the tree.   But what's more is that you've ACCEPTED the Christmas party invitation(s).   Your festive sparkly bling and fancy shoes are sitting… Continue reading Party People

California ramblings.

Palm trees make everything better! The shadow picturesque giant palm leaves drooping against a California back drop is dreamy. People ask me all the time, "where is Palos Verdes, California?"  This sporty bubble of a town is south of Hermosa and Manhattan Beach just above Redondo. It's in on a cliff I would say elevated… Continue reading California ramblings.
