This Fitness Friday I have asked my friend Lori Rypka to do a guest post.  Lori has lost an amazing amount of weight (70 pounds and counting…)on her fitness journey and inspires me every day to make the right choices.  She is living proof that determination will get you the results you want every time! Dieting sucks, so why do it? Now that you’ve gasped and spit out your morning danish, hear me out. It’s true, dieting sucks. Coming from a serial dieter, I can’t say I have looked back on a single program and thought, “Wow, this is the…

POST #8 IN THE FITNESS FRIDAY SERIES Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, it’s time to get back on track. If you went a little (or a lot) overboard with your eating yesterday own it and move forward. There’s no sense in beating yourself up over it—what’s done is done. Make better choices starting right now. Don’t wait until Monday or even New Years. Set one small attainable objective for today and reach it. Do it again tomorrow, and again the following day and each successive day thereafter.These daily achievements will help reinforce your commitment to reaching your fitness…

POST #5 IN THE FITNESS FRIDAYS SERIES Part one of a two part article – check back tomorrow. Okay, it is time for Fitness Friday again with my Personal Trainer friend Rachel.  So, I am, ugh, not sure exactly about this but I think I might have inspired this rather brutally honest post by my pal.  Primarily because I am always deluding myself into thinking that I eat healthy and that my extra couple of pounds are a cruel trick of nature rather than my own fault. So… sorry if she is kinda forceful about it.  Entirely my bad. Stop…

POST #3 IN THE FITNESS FRIDAYS SERIES As you may have noticed, last week I took a one week break from the Fitness Friday schedule to post my interview with Uma Thurman.  Seemed like an okay substitution, although some have asked if I was planning on bringing little Ms. Rachel back…. Well, of course I am! And because I am a selfish-type blogger I kept this week’s post to something that I could benefit from – exercises you can do at work, specifically for the lower body!  Hope you enjoy and pass it along….. Here are a few easy lower-body…

This is a post in a series to focus on Fitness Fridays! (More here…) 4AM – WHY DO YOU TAUNT ME SO? For whatever reason, I was up and wide-eyed at 4:00am this morning. I COULD NOT SLEEP. No idea why. So I got on the internet, checked my email. Looked over the BlogHop ’09 participants. I hopped around. I commented.  I read about The Bloggess and  her insanity at Blogher. But still, I was not tired. AT. ALL. So what does a bored girl do at 4 in the morning?  Make her husband get up. Hey, listen. He is…

So, um, you didn’t hear from me yesterday because I was  busy enjoying a scrumptious meal in Baltimore with my family otherwise occupied, um, working out . Yeah, that is what I was doing… working out. What? You don’t believe me? Fine. I totally didn’t work out yesterday. I totally ate like crap. I admit it. I had a chocolate chip croissant (Perfect Truffle) then with lunch I had some chips and cookies and then for dinner we had lots of wine um, and some dessert.  And that is only the HALF I am willing to tell you about.  Why do I do this…
