Charlotte’s own Jillian Michaels

I’ve found her, friends. I haven’t watched Biggest Loser in a long time, but when I did years ago the thing that seemed so great to me was to have a dedicated space and amount of time, one that focuses on healthy eating, exercising, getting trim. Recently I signed up for a month of boot camp…

Keeping with the spirit of adventure (Warrior Dash, here I come)

As you may recall, I decided 2012 is officially my year to say yes to new things. The last time I checked in, I cited hot yoga (which I began in December, so I guess that’s not officially 2012, but it’s still new to me), rock climbing, working out at 6 a.m. (boot camp class), Zumba (which…

Say yes, 2012 (hot yoga, pink hair, rock climbing)

So, it’s almost February, and I’ve finally decided on my New Year’s resolution. And I want you to do it with me. More about that at the end, but be ready, my friends. I had a little bit of an idea about what I wanted it to be in my head, and I’ve been kind…

Fear of committment

I received a wonderful compliment from Stephanie yesterday – she told me that she admires my committment to fitness. This said during the same day that I a) had committment on my mind, (namely, people who commit to things and then disappoint) and b) started a new workout journey – boot camp classes at this…

These clothes cost, um, how much exactly?

Before Outdoor Nation changed their web site, they used to hand out points for activity on the site. One could then redeem points for fun outdoor gear. Before you run over and sign up, I must tell you that sadly, they took away their point system several months ago. They’ve replaced it with a series of…

Spring is just around the corner

It’s been a roller coaster of a month. In the past three weeks, I have lost one of my best friends due to an argument. Daily life feels emptier without him to talk to. I have started questioning what it means to lean on people, rely on people, and how to handle when those people let you down. Shortly…

It’s all relative.

About a week and a half ago, I decided to attend a new yoga class at the studio I’ve been attending. This class was different for two reasons: it has been called the most difficult yoga class the studio offers, and Stacey was unable to make it so I would be attempting the new challenge alone.…

I suck at that.

How many times do we say that about things that we just haven’t given ourselves a chance to conquer? If you’ve read this blog at any length, you probably know I love exercising. I love running. I love a good circuit training workout or spin class or personal training session. But what do I not…

You can be fat and lazy as long as your friends are not

You know someone really gets you when all you have to do is send this text: “I’m fat and lazy.” That was my appeal for help to Scott on Monday. I’ve been so busy with various work projects that I haven’t had time to work out. Which I realize is absolutely an excuse. No matter…

A stranger is on my mind today.

She touched my heart almost two years ago with a message through Facebook, and I have not stopped thinking about her, in some capacity, since. She is not a complete stranger. In fact, I’ve probably known her most of my life. But I cannot think of one conversation we had together. We didn’t go to a…
