I love stairs so much… sometimes they make me dance!

The 10th annual Los Angeles Fight For Air Climb was on Saturday, and I was ready to go. I even had my personal mantra written on my arm.

When I went to Michigan for Christmas, I took a couple Richard Simmons DVDs with me. DVDs are great for traveling – they’re light and easy to pack. Sure enough, on Christmas Day, when the gym was closed, I popped “Sweatin’ to the Oldies 3” into my laptop and got in a great workout. It was the first time I had done that video. And yesterday marked the first time I’ve ever done “Sweatin’ to the Oldies 4.”
Historically speaking, I haven’t done Richard’s DVDs all that often, mostly because Read the rest of this entry »

In November, I kicked off the 6 Week Challenge, using my Bowflex SelectTech 560 dumbbells. It was definitely a challenge, and the timing when I completed it couldn’t have been more perfect.
I found the 6 Week Challenge on the Read the rest of this entry »
