Not until the competition- I still have 12 weeks to go. However, when I am pushing myself through another grueling leg work out, I have found myself getting a second wind right past the half way mark. I dig deep and really get my mind into what I am doing, and push through to the last rep. I pretend that my trainer is standing behind me and counting, so I definitely don’t cheat on the reps! I tell myself “the end is near”- meaning the end of this workout, and the reward is rest, recovery, and a healthy meal to nourish me.
With both my Undergraduate and Masters' degrees in fitness and over 20 years experience as a Personal Trainer, I'm excited about the opportunity to share my knowledge via this blog. Never before have so many people had such access to information as they do today via the internet, and yet people continue to struggle with weight loss, fitness, and living a healthy lifestyle.

Running also fires up your metabolism so you continue to burn calories at a higher rate even when your run is over.
Sounds e-z enough; however, it is not an e-z task for many people. This blog is here to motivate you to take action toward your own personal healthy lifestyle, through education (knowlege), testimonies (experience) and by the answering of questions (understanding). This blog is not intended to highlight my knowledge & experience only...I encourage all who visit to either share knowledge or experience or ask questions to increase understanding, but know that there is none greater than the Creator of all things to seek for TRUTH, WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE, EXPERIENCE &a
