My Current Favorite Workout Songs – April 2016 Edition

April 15, 2016

Gosh, I haven’t done one of these posts in a while! Music is an important part of my exercise program. I listen to it as often as I can.

My PR Streak Continues! (San Diego Fight For Air Climb Race Recap)

It took me all of 10 seconds to decide to purchase it. That’s roughly the amount of time needed for me to Read the rest of this entry »


April Weigh-In Results and Workout Progress Report

April 4, 2016

Seems like punishment to weigh myself on a day known for pranks and practical jokes, but I established my own weigh-in calendar, and weighing myself on the first of every month, including April 1st, is part of the deal. And this is no joke: I’m up two pounds.

I’ve been pretty good lately about not getting bummed at weight gains. I have a lot to be proud of, and I’ve accomplished so much, but this one stung a little bit, if only because  Read the rest of this entry »
