A fitness plan for a crazy week of travel (30/30/30: 21)

February 20, 2012 | | 3 Comments

For those of you keeping up with my 30/30/30 personal fitness challenge for the month of February, today I did workout number 21, which means I’m on still on track to finish the month with thirty 30-minute workouts in thirty days. 

For the first time since I started this fitness challenge I’m facing a pretty hairy week as far as schedules go. Tomorrow morning I leave for Little Rock to attend an awards ceremony, then drive back home the next day. The day after that I fly out to Nashville for Blissdom, where I’ll be until Saturday.

As the end of the month approaches I can see the light at the end of this tunnel. Now is not the time to slack on all of this consistent exercise I’ve done. This is the closest I’ve come to completing any sort of fitness goal possibly ever. Read More

Zumba. Fantastic. (30/30/30: 19 & 20)

February 19, 2012 | | 4 Comments

In an effort to break up the elliptical/Pilates/elliptical/Pilates cycle I’ve been in this past week I went to Zumba today. People tell me Zumba is AMAAAAAAAAAAAZING and fun and a great workout. This was not my perception the last time I tried it. My experience was more like this:

Oh! fun music. I can shake my booty.

Wait. What’s she doing there? Read More

30 minutes and two hours (30/30/30: 18)

My thirty minute workout took two hours today. I’m not entirely sure what happened, but I went to the gym at 11:00 am to do a quick thirty minutes on the elliptical and walked out at 1:00 pm.

I … Read More

Sleepyhead-proofing my workout (30/30/30: 17)

February 17, 2012 | | 3 Comments

Getting up at the A$% crack of dawn isn’t easy. The jarring feeling of the alarm clock going off at 5:00 a.m. makes my skin crawl. We’re so into sleep around here, that our alarm clock is in an entirely different room so that Read More

Swimming in variety (30/30/30: 16)

One important part of my 30/30/30 fitness goal has been to mix it up. And by “mix it up” I do not mean walk, elliptical, Pilates, repeat. This is what Read More

It’s okay to carry a white bag in the winter if it’s a gym bag, right?Read More

Tech addict for reals (30/30/30: 12 & 13)

February 12, 2012 | | 2 Comments

The fancy touch-screen computer TechnoGym ellipticals aren’t enough to keep me entertained during a workout. Sometimes it takes an iPad to truly distract me from the reality of doing anything in the same place for an hour. Today it took an iPad, a fancy piece of equipment and a good visit with a friend. Each workout has been very different during this challenge. Read More

One very difficult part of going back to work has been the separation from my stay-at-home-mom (SAHM) friends. Read More

I have a little secret (30/30/30: 10)

February 9, 2012 | | 2 Comments

Here’s a little secret… I have no idea how much I weigh.
I have my husband weigh me and keep track of the changes in a spreadsheet. Occasionally, I ask him how I’m doing, but I have no idea what the actual number is.

Here’s why: Read More

More Pilates (30/30/30: 8 & 9)

February 8, 2012 | | One Comment

Nothing much to report today. It was Pilates day. Since its a one-hour class I totally count it as two thirty-minute workouts.

Yesterday I started a cleanse diet and thought I’d be dying by now. So far it hasn’t been … Read More
