Grab a partner

Today has been a FABULOUS day! I worked out with the trainer again today, what a workout. I'm telling you, this man knows so much, I feel almost childlike around him. I'm so excited to learn. We did intense running, with a full body routine after. I immediately came home and soaked in a hot bath, I know I will be soar tomorrow.

This leads me to my topic, grab a partner. If you read this blog you know I'm a fanatic, and every workout I do is intense. I must say however, having a partner does help. Today while we were doing the running, I wanted to quit, it was so hard, but I had a partner so I didn't........I kept going, increasing the speed, and I completed the routine. If Todd hadn't been there, I probably wouldn't have pushed myself the way I did, I worked off of his energy.

Now, I'm not going to always have someone there, but it's nice every once in awhile to share the experience. I encourage you to grab a workout buddy, enroll in a class, or if you can afford to hire a trainer. Especially if your having a hard time getting started. You'll build a great relationship, and reap the rewards.

Thank you for reading and no matter what shape or size you are, always love yourself!!!


Avoid the myth of giving up red meat entirely. Beef is a top source of protein, zinc, iron, and B vitamins. Moderation is key. You can have up to three 6oz servings of cooked red meat a week, just remember to choose the lean cuts. (I personally didn't eat red meat for 16 years until Oct. 2009, now I consume at least one 6oz fillet Mignon a week for the nutrients)
