I Promise, I’ll Keep Trying

Well, there goes all that hard work and those healthy initiatives from a few months back. Remember that? Remember when I thought I’d figured out the “secrets” to staying healthy and spoke like I knew something…anything about it. Look at me up there, all pompous and motivated and successful at losing weight. And sure, it doesn’tContinue reading “I Promise, I’ll Keep Trying”

#AvengerinTraining – Recap

After 6 weeks of weekly challenges, superhero meal plans and different classes all around New York City, I lost 15 pounds and I feel stronger than I ever have. 15 pounds is by no means as extraordinary amount of weight to lose. But it’s a good amount and it’s enough to be very proud of. There wereContinue reading “#AvengerinTraining – Recap”

#AvengerinTraining – Captain America Week

Finishing Strong Entering the final week, I felt strong. Stronger than I’ve ever felt before. I discovered muscles I didn’t know could ache. I had better balance and control in my workouts.

#AvengerinTraining – Thor Week

Hitting a Wall By week 4, I was tired. I just wanted to sleep. Scheduling was getting difficult. The nice promising Spring weather had turned cold and my motivation almost left me completely this week. Morning runs were hard to come by (because I don’t like running in cold weather.) So I had to findContinue reading “#AvengerinTraining – Thor Week”

#AvengerinTraining – Black Widow Week

Going Strong By week 3 I felt like I could take on the world. My muscles were aching  because I was constantly using them in new ways. My endurance was getting better.

#AvengerinTraining – Hulk Week

Hitting Stride In Week 2 I really felt like I was in the zone. My morning runs were really strong. And coming out of Iron Man week I was ready for the next challenges. The foods I ate during Iron Man week really helped me reboot my eating habits and eat clean and healthier meals!Continue reading “#AvengerinTraining – Hulk Week”

#AvengerinTraining – Iron Man Week

Introduction I would consider myself a fairly fit person. I enjoy running and Soul Cycle and walking and when I’m vigilant, I eat marginally well. But then came the winter and I was discontent. Chilly weather caused my motivation to disappear. The running stopped. The Soul Cycle stopped. I still tried to walk and getContinue reading “#AvengerinTraining – Iron Man Week”
