Your Time Saving Tips

by Jillian on August 31, 2011 · 4 comments

I held out on posting until this afternoon for a few reasons. I snoozed. I skipped my ab workout and ran a quick 4 miles. I had a doctor’s appointment before work. All’s good in woman-land, if you ladies know what I mean. My breakfast was devoured in about 3 seconds because of my early […]


Smoothie Blunder

This morning was very difficult waking up. It was dark and cold, which means fall is right around the corner. But for some reason, some of my best workouts come out of unmotivated mornings. I knew I didn’t have a lot of time, so I opted for an upper body strength training and cardio mix up. […]

Fortunately, it is still happening today but Saturday and Sunday are postponed. That is the news that I woke up to, along with the […]


Treadmill Pet Peeve

by Jillian on August 25, 2011 · 5 comments

This morning, while in the middle of my interval workout, my treadmill came to a hault. Nooooo! I hate that!  I am a numbers freak and I like when things are even, so it totally screws me up. And the worst part is that I’m pretty sure my elbow just tapped the “stop” button accidentally. […]
