Thanks for stopping by! Let's get sweaty and figure out this whole parenting thing together!

No Off Season

Last week on my favorite fitness inspiration show (The Biggest Loser), Bob was wearing a shirt that read "three days on, one day off, 365 days," and I thought isn't that an interesting perspective. Shirt created by Life as Rx


I am by no means a cross fitter fanatic. I just haven't been able to get into it like so many of the people around me have. I think it is the commitment to the times...seriously that's the only reason Josh and I didn't do it after we tried it last year. But the "no off season" concept is really intriguing.

I never realized I had a running "off season" until recently when I found myself NOT running during the winter and just recently feeling the desire to get out there. Now I have spring/summer races on the schedule and the more mild-temperatures are motivating me to run.

So why can't my normal exercise routine take on that same system? Even if my third day becomes a yoga day because my body is just too tired, I like the idea of that being a goal. It makes it more attainable than working out 5 days in a row.

Weight Loss

In other news, when I was with my trainer we did another one of those BMI, body percentage calculator thingies. He was shocked when the little thing showed the results. I wasn't shocked. It is the same thing I have been dealing with. I am pretty toned, solid muscle, but I am a petite lady, which means I bulk and don't become lean.

I bought the Petite Advantage Diet a few months ago and didn't really use it because it called for meat and I wasn't eating it then. Now I am thinking about trying to follow it more closely. The only problem is that means almost separate grocery lists for me and hubby (who is absolutely not a petite person). He's on a healthy/weight loss kick too right now so it helps a bit, but how do you actually plan the meals like that? Dinner especially.
