Zombie Rush Obstacle Course Race

It's been a while since I've done an obstacle course race. The last one I did was the Beach Beast back in April and it ultimately led to me hurting my knee... :( Note to self, do not run on the beach anymore. And what made it worse was that the Beach Beast was actually a really bad OCR, I definitely do NOT recommend wasting your money on this one. But I am happy to say that today I registered for the Zombie Rush in October. In the spirit of Halloween, I'll be chased by Zombies while running through Amelia Earhart Park in Hialeah, FL on the 19th.

How I Went from Fat to Fit

Ok, so after all this time, I realized I've never really told my full story of how I came to write a blog about fitness and nutrition. My entire life I've been active and part of most every sport you can play...softball, swimming, track, basketball, tennis, horseback riding, volleyball, etc. I played sports year-round in both indoor arena leagues, summer travel leagues, and in my own back yard. So you read this and probably think, well she's been in shape her entire life. Not quite.

Should You Invest in Weightlifting Gloves?

Every time I go into the gym at work and one of my female coworkers is in there lifting, she's wearing weight lifting gloves. In my entire life of conditioning for sports over the years and even now that I'm lifting recreationally  I've never worn gloves. Well, I shouldn't say never...I wear weighted gloves for kickboxing class but that's a completely different subject. Ok, back on subject. It got me thinking that maybe I should look into it.

Coming Back from Vacation...

I've decided to change up the blog a little and make some personal posts mixed in with the informational posts. 

Coming back from vacation (ok, not really a vacation but a long weekend) is always hard. The entire weekend, I didn’t really want to exercise. I wanted to pig out, relax and catch some rays.
