Snow, Cold & Fitness Motivation

I feel like every few days we are preparing for another snow castrophy here in DC. It won’t be such a let down this weekend as for a few reasons (1) one of my biffles is headed this way for the weekend [hopefully she can make it]; (2) Season 2 of House of Cards gets […][...]

Training for a Good Cause: Team Challenge

Way back when I started this blog, nearly three years ago, it was in part to track my first major race — a half marathon. I didn’t do it alone though, because I am not as fancy as many runners out there. Since I had a family connection (my dad), I decided to do it […][...]

Continuing my yoga kick

I just finished up my first 36 days of the Ultimate Yogi program. To recap, I am back in 2s for skirts, down 4lbs and feeling amazing since I have been sleeping better. I hadn’t really thought about it, but because of the commitment to yoga I was getting up at the same time every […][...]

Revolve Cross Cycle Challenge

Hello friends, it’s been awhile. The last few weeks have been pretty busy…I always think August is going to be slow this year it was anything but. However, since I basically shut down if I don’t exercise I did make time to attend Revolve’s Cross Cycle Challenge. I was jealous[...]

Regretting My ‘No Marathon’ Decision

A few months ago, I decided to postpone running the NYC Marathon for another year. At the time, I had a summer filled with travel (that hasn’t changed) and a really busy work schedule (also hasn’t changed and relates to reason number one). Now with everyone’s training in full swing[...]

Happy National Running Day

This morning a friend asked “Who puts National Running Day, just two days before National Donut Day?”  Of course, I haven’t had a donut in who knows how long, but I get the concept of running so that you can enjoy delicious food (or bloody mary’s–I love those things). [...]

A TRX Date

Work has been picking up progressively, which means my workouts have become sporadic. If I don’t plan my workouts in advance I don’t have time to just jump over to the gym for a spin class. Basically it just isn’t going to happen. Being uber busy also means that I am more likely to[...]

Ballet Body: Core

*Standard Running On Veggies Disclaimer: I received the DVDs for free, opinions are my own*  There was a time that I wanted to be a ballerina badly, but 10 year old Laney didn’t have the flexibility or the grace to keep that up. So when I am surrounding by Broadway dancers in Figure 4 or th[...]

Avoiding the Flu

I went full germ-a-phobe these last two weeks. I was on planes and trains, public transportation and lots of people. I was sanitizing, hand-washing and giving the old dude hacking up a storm at the airport the evil eye for not covering his mouth. I hadn’t gotten my flu shot because my local ph[...]

Is there an exercise you just can’t do?

Do you have that one exercise that no matter how in shape you are you just can’t seem to do? Not like you want to puke because it is so hard, but your body just won’t do it? I have a few… 1) Table tops..brought to you by Jillian Michael’s Ripped in 30 DVD. I […][...]
