Have you ever thought about doing a playtime workout? Playtime workouts can be a wonderful way to get a workout in for both you and your kids! There are so many things you can do and you don’t need anything but a playground and some running space! But if you want to get “fancy” you can add some … [Read more…]

As I type this post I am cozy and warm in my apartment as the weather outside turns into a Winter Wonderland. Wednesday morning I went for a 3 mile walk in short sleeves and capris. Later, we were at the park playing, having a craft sale and most of the kids were wearing shorts and t-shirts. Today, … [Read more…]

It took me awhile, but I’ve learned that if I don’t like it, I won’t do it. I know that I need to exercise, but I had to figure out what makes me want to exercise. You have to like what you are doing. And finally, I do!! I was kind of lost for a little bit when my favorite instructor quit … [Read more…]

Now that the weather is cooling off, I’m finding that I do NOT want to go outside for runs. Or bikes. Or to get in the car to go to the gym. I don’t wanna, and you can’t make me. So what do you do? What do you do when it’s too cold or too rainy or too sunny or too insert unacceptable weather … [Read more…]

Fitness Friday is upon us, and this week I’m going to give you my top fitness picks, and in turn I want you to share yours! There are so many Sisters (and hopefully some brothers lurking out there), with different experiences we can all learn from. So check mine out and then share your top picks … [Read more…]

During the 2nd week of November (ha, you thought I was gonna say December, huh?) I filled out the comment section of this blog post in hopes of winning the up and coming new Wii Game from EA Sports – More Workouts. I was really excited about the new game and new challenge that was going to start the … [Read more…]

It’s true! Today is the final weigh-in for our Shrink-a-Versary Extravaganza Challenge. First thing I want you to do is reach around and give yourself a pat on the back for sticking with the challenge through Thanksgiving and the beginning of the holiday season. WOW! It’s been 7 weeks, and … [Read more…]

Hey Sisters (and Brothers)! It’s Melissa (TheDailyMel) sneaking in with a guest post today.  As you may remember, I was one of the lucky winners of the new EAS Active More Workouts fitness game for the Wii recently during the big Shrink-a-Versary Giveaway extravaganza.  Since I’ve had it for a … [Read more…]

More Workouts is the newest fitness game from EA SPORTS Active. Like Personal Trainer, More Workouts guides you through pre-set workouts, just like a personal trainer would in the gym. The beauty is you don’t have to pay personal trainer prices and you can get an amazing workout without ever taking … [Read more…]

When all nine of us get to brainstorming, we come up with some fabulous ideas, so stay tuned! Keep in mind that … [Read more…]

Sound the alarms, it’s weigh-in day! Last week, Heather described my trek to the scale so perfectly in her weigh-in post that I laughed out loud as I took every step in the perfect way in which she described. Something about heading to the scale, looking at the numbers with our “scrunched up … [Read more…]

Today was the first day of my training for the 5K.  How do I put this? My legs are SORE! I just might be the slowest runner out there, BUT I did it.  I ran the training as outlined for today:  5 minute warm-up, 5 minute jog, 3 minute walk, 5 minute jog, 3 minute walk, 5 minute jog, 5 minute cool … [Read more…]

I don’t think I’ve ever done a True Confessions post here at the Sisterhood. Imagine my surprise when I realized it was my turn. Ouch. I wish I could say, aw, I’m a  rockstar and I have nothing to confess, but I’m not, and I do. I haven’t done my EAS 30-Day Challenge all weekend. I’m ashamed. I … [Read more…]

I am now the proud owner of a Wii, thanks in part to Beth! She scored one for me, since Texas seems to be lacking in the Wiis, and it arrived safely in the mail today! Earlier this week, my Wii Fit arrived too. I’m ready to join the latest fitness craze and jump start my nonexistent exercise regime! … [Read more…]
