Healthy Goals

The #1 new year’s resolution is to get more healthy.  I guess I’m in good company because that’s my new year’s resolution too, again.  I seem to have this resolution several times during the entire year so I’m not sure if that’s truly a “new year’s” resolution except that it happens to coincide with the first day of the year.  I’m not usually one for making resolutions.  I suppose January 1st is a good excuse to reevaluate all of my resolutions, especially when it comes to healthy eating since I probably ate more cookies last month than all of last year.  I thought …

Friday Fitness

It’s been a while since I chatted about my fitness routine and it’s such a big part of my life that I thought I’d share with you what I’ve been up to.

Winter Workout

Working out during Winter can be tough.  There are days that I can’t make it to the gym because it’s snowing or because it’s cold and dark and I have little to no motivation to go back out.  This is my struggle from about November to March.  What’s a girl to do?  Well, I’ve switched up my workout routine a bit. I still workout about 4 to 5 times per week.  Going to the gym is Plan A and working out at home is Plan B.  For me, working out at home means popping in a DVD and following along like I have …
