    Posted on August 16, 2015 by in Blogs, Uncategorized

    So I wanted to remind our Boot Campers of other things that happen to our bodies as a result of working out. We aren’t just working out to be thinner for a wedding or to look good at our 20th High School Reunion. Not only is fitness a lifestyle, but amazing things are happening on [...]

    Why I Don’t Work Out Alone

    Posted on July 24, 2015 by in Living Fit, Uncategorized

    This week when I showed up for my usual Wednesday nigh bleacher class, I was expecting to run lots of stairs. I was not expecting to run a timed mile. So when Timmie said we were, I immediately gave myself an out. “I’m not mentally prepared for this.  We always do these at the end of [...]

    Yes, I Really Do Like To Exercise

    Posted on May 22, 2015 by in Living Fit

    If you spend any time around me, or follow me on social media, you know I like to exercise. I am not quiet about it, because I love it so much. But sometimes, people still don’t believe me.

    Strong is the New Skinny!

    Posted on April 1, 2015 by in Living Fit

    Confession: I don’t love my arms. Most of the time, when I see them, I just think they are fat. I’ll never forget the day when I was 16, trying on saris in India, struggling to get the fashionable, very tight, sleeves over my arms. As I pulled, the auntie squeezed my arm with her fingers [...]

    How Many Burpees in a Cheeseburger

    Posted on March 25, 2015 by in Living Fit
