I still hate running. I have my good days and my bad days; I have times when I am not getting out of the bed in the morning to run and those times when I am able to convince myself to run because it is the right thing to do. It is a daily struggle. But I try (oh so very hard) to stick with it....more
Ask any woman brave enough to step into the gym what she’d like to improve and I’d bet dollars to donuts that 9 out of 9 of them would tell you they want a better butt and thighs. I know I do!

I know that feeling, and it's a sucky one. Fortunately, there's hope! If the results aren't showing up like you've been hoping for, by simply making a tweak or two, you will finally begin to see all your hard work pay off.
I try to incorporate exercise more into my daily life, but it’s a constant struggle for me. I don’t love working out, and it can be really hard to force myself off the couch and get a good workout in. I loved physical activity when I was in high school and constantly played sports. Now that I’m not dancing and playing soccer, it’s harder to find workouts that I enjoy! I like workout classes, but have the hardest time forcing myself to get to the gym. I prefer to workout at home, but don’t always have the tools I need to get the workout I need....more
