Sarah’s Workout Plan for the Week of 1/23/17

I am sure nothing can stop me now. We had the month long winter storm of a quarter century. Then as soon as the weather let up, I go a wicked cold after not getting sick for a long time. I am tired of my own whining and complaining and delaying. But I still share because it is the reality for so many. There must be a joke about getting.. Read More

Moving the Treadmill for Increased Workouts

I heard the other day that we have received 50 inches of snow since the beginning of December. We are close to the mountains and get snow regularly, but our precipitation is just not generally enough for that. Plus, we have had very cold temperatures. This unusual weather caused an elementary school roof collapse, which has taken the kids our of school for 9 days now. They may go back.. Read More

Sarah’s Workouts: Week in Review

She talked about the focus of the class to be child like, but I believe.. Read More

Sarah’s 1/4/17 Workout: Rock Climbing Gym

Last night we went to the rock climbing gym as a family. I started with the treadmill, where I can run and watch the kiddos climb up the wall. I wanted to run for at least a mile, but made it just under. My lungs were burning! I am not sure if I pushed myself more than what I am ready for or if the extreme cold outside is making..

Sarah’s 1/2/2017 Workout: Circuit and Abs

Today was a gym day. The family has the day off and will be going to the rock climbing gym without me, so I had to get my workout in at the gym before heading into work. I will generally focus on a certain muscle group in the gym, but I was just looking to burn some calories today. So I focused on a circuit workout. I started with cardio.. Read More
