I am on a rampage!!! I am trying to get my whole life in order, started a huge overhaul of my home tonight, it will probably take me a whole month to complete, however when I am done re-organizing I will be able to host a fit club in my home for my local friends.
This will help keep me motivated with my weight loss, and will help them with their motivation as well. :) Plus it will help improve my relationship with my poor husband, because, you see, I am an artist. Artists aren’t exactly known for being clean, we make huge art messes, unless you happen to be an artist with an OCD for organizing. (rare but it does happen!) He loves a clean house and I love to make him happy, so I will do this for both of us!
So I am trying to improve myself by making a new habit of keeping my home clean and organized, and also improve myself by finishing my weight loss, and improve my relationship with my husband by being more organized, not just with the house but with my work as well, so that I can spend more time with him. Which will make both of us happier.
Sometimes it’s healthy to boast/feel cocky. A year ago I began a love/hate relationship with fitness. I would get off to a good start and then fall into a slump. As of today I am down over 60 lbs and have gained a healthy amount of muscle. I dont even have to tell you i owe most of it to @soulcycle but it has truly changed my life and for that I am SO thankful.
Summertime, certainly brings out the best in all of us. Who wouldn’t want to maximize their workout for a rocking summer body?

To get you started, we caught up with three of our teachers to get some healthy tips.
Take your Workout Outside There are so many physical activities you can do outside such as going on a hike, playing games with your kids. Also, biking, running, swimming, Kiteboarding, and boot camps are good ways to keep your body guessing and effectively burning more calories. Outdoor activities also are a great way to be active with your kids and get them motivated to exercise early on in their life.
Nike seriously deceived and then attempted to kill me today. I looked at this workout, and thought pfft after yesterday, this will be a piece of cake. Honestly it wasn’t bad, it was challenging, but not killer, and then those fucking walkout to push-ups came along. Now if I were strong enough for a regulation push-up this may have been all good, but I’m not I have to do modified push-ups. So your girl here was walking out, hitting a plank, dropping to her knees, hitting that push-up with proper form, getting back into that plank and walking back up… Jesus sweat was pouring down my face and this picture doesn’t even really show it.
This little hallway is off the indoor track and I’m pretty sure someone thinks I’m about to die every single day, but I just keep pushing through these workouts. Modifications definitely happen, but I haven’t failed to finish any workout I’ve actually started. I did miss two last week, but I did get in other workouts.
Oh yeah btw, I’m doing a 4 week Nike Training Club Workout Plan because I wanted to challenge myself. I was also getting bored, and had no idea of what to do at the gym any more.
