Hi Gorgeous Ones!

As I mentioned last week, I’ll be posting weekly on my journey to greater health & fitness. Over the weekend I was out-of-town in Gatlinburg, TN with my daughter, which entailed some elements that slightly threw me off. Will discuss that further in Friday’s post. Outside of that, I worked out that Friday morning which was the day we left. I didn’t get in any “deliberate” work-outs during our trip but I can say that I got an extra good amount of daily walking in.

My 1st workout since then was on Tuesday. I haven’t made it back to the gym yet, so I’ve been gettin’ it in at home with my trusty work-out dvd’s by Gilad and Jillian Michaels (You know, the hellified fitness coach from "The Biggest Loser"). You may think that it’s not possible to get an authentic workout outside of a fitness gym but it really is. As long as you have the genuine desire and drive to get to a specific goal it’s doable. Great workouts and exercise can be done just about anywhere. Trust me. I’m giving up the same amount of sweat as I do when I go to the gym.

My weight hasn't fluctuated, which is a good thing. it did cross my mind though, as I ate some fries with a veggie burger while in Gatlinburg. Oh! I also had a Coke Zero while on the road. I know some of you may be thinking "What's the big deal with that?".  Lately, I've stayed away from diet sodas for some of the reasons here and here. I caved in late Sunday night for a caffeine buzz. Had to make sure I stayed awake while on the road and coffee would've made me need some extra stops. So I definitely have to find another and healthy option for when I'm on a road-trip like that.

If you know or have heard of anything, do share. I'll research it and see if it's something I could try. And in the meantime, will look for other options myself.

So, what have you done for your own heatlh, wellness and fitness?.. You know you're worth it.



  1. Great post ! I'm with you CO, I also think you can get a great workout with a few great, great work out videos just as you've stated. You are inspiring me girl! (LOL)

    Keep up the terrific work. Why...because you're worth it :))) Take care.



Speak on it
