Mixing it Up – An Adventure in Exercise

Sparkle Clients at Boot Camp

I have now participated in so many 5K’s that I’ve lost count, and I have the t-shirts to prove it! Never did I think that 60 pounds ago, I would be seeking out 5K’s, but here I am! In order to keep myself motivated, I find one 5K to walk or run/walk every month. It’s […]

The Playout

Colorado Workouts

Here is a fun post from my client, Suzette!  Enjoy! I was lucky to have grown up in a family of competitive athletes so sports and exercise have always been fun. As a result, I think we need to change workouts to playouts. Do you remember when you were 5 and you would race your […]

Just Live Leggings

Just Live Leggings

Exercise is so important now that summer is just around the corner!  Although the pollen is at an all time high, I am thankful to have a treadmill I can walk/run on.  I don’t know about you but I love a good pair of leggings.  Being the “not so skinny” self that I am, I […]

2015 Vionic Walkabout Challenge

Vionic Walkabout Challenge

One of my goals this month is to walk more.  I love my weekend walks with my husband. However, I need to walk more during the week.  I find myself making excuses and not exercising.  This is NOT helping my weight loss! Vionic Footwear contacted me asking if I would be interested in taking their […]

The Many Health Benefits of Exercise

The only bad workout is the one that didn't happen.

This past week I had the pleasure of speaking to a group of women that are Jacynta’s clients and fellow Sparkle peeps.  Jacynta went to the beach and asked me if I would teach some classes on exercise.  I, of course, said, “YES!”  I love teaching and I love inspiring others.  I decided to cover […]

Leave a Legacy

Lara and her running partners

Here is a word of inspiration from one of my Sparkle Peeps, Lara… The other day, Jacynta asked me to think about my legacy. While it would be easy to say health, or wellness, I’m actually leaving running as my legacy. That’s right….running! If someone had told me 2 years ago, that I would be […]

Glow Run 5K

Glow Run 5k

I love 5k’s.  I feel they are a great distance and just about anyone, walkers or runners can do them and feel successful! I also love 5k’s with a “theme.”  My sister, niece and myself did the Color Me Rad Run last year.  It was a blast!  So much fun and so interesting.  Not your […]

Run for Mercy 5k – Race Recap

Run For Mercy Atlanta 5k

A few weeks ago, Jacynta asked me if I would do a 5k with her.  I said, “Sure!”  I didn’t need details or who the run was for.  I just needed to make sure I was available, and I was, so I signed up. The run was today and it was called the Run for […]

Excuses…Excuses…

Someone busier than you is exercising right now

I’m too busy to… Fill in the blank.  Fill it in with whatever you are “too busy” to do. For me, lately, I have been “too busy” to exercise.  Plus, I think to myself, it is 80% what I put in my mouth so as long as I watch what I eat, I will be […]
