There is a lot of talk out there about Target Heart Rate (THR) Zones and their importance. A lot of the information is way too complicated! So here is a simple explanation and calculation to help you understand why you need to know yours! Read More→
The only way I can describe this ride is quintessential LA! Only in Los Angeles can you ride for 13 miles and get a ride through multi-million dollar homes, climb a mountain to Griffith Observatory, see amazing views of the Pacific and the Hollywood sign, and finish it up with some screaming down-hill technical descents along deserted “country roads” and, oh, did I mention the coyote?

I think one of the main issues with exercise is boredom. There is so much excitement associated when you first make the commitment to exercise. You are full of hope that this time will be different… You will get into peak shape or finally lose the weight you’ve been desperate to lose or you will be able to balance your stress. Whatever personal reason drives you to exercise soon is lost in the mundane routine of exercise. You get tired of the same equipment at the gym, the same work out video or the same neighborhood loop you always run. What can you do to combat the boredom? Read More→
Your mission… Walk 4x’s per week for 30 minutes.
Super simple but requires a commitment to yourself. The holiday season can be so hectic, but this year you can take one small step towards taking care of yourself and Living in Balance.
So I’ve challenged you to commit to walking 4x’s per week for 30 minutes. Do you have to run out and buy spandex and shoes for this challenge? No! All you need to do is wear whatever you’ve got on and some comfortable shoes, put the dog on a leash and head out the door. You should think of this time as relaxation. Truly this is what this challenge should look like… Read More→
The holidays are approaching! You can feel it in the air! The weather is turning cooler, the leaves are changing, and I’m starting to feel the itch to… EAT! In the last two weeks I’ve made more bread and desserts than I have in the last 6 months. I’m serious! But I’ve worked hard all summer long to stay in shape and I refuse to let my waistline start to expand now! Are you with me?!?! Read More→
Wow has it been a while since I last blogged!! Time so easily gets away from us!
I for one, have been struggling with keeping a regular exercise program this summer, and time is flying. This doesn’t mean I haven’t been active, we’ve been to the beach, music in the park, downtown, jump roping in the back yard, swimming, swimming and more swimming. No, what I’m talking about is the put on your work out clothes and “officially” work out. I can manage it for a couple of days then my schedule is interrupted by something more fun. :^) Read More→
For all of you avid cyclists out there you know exactly what I mean when I compare a road bike to a sports car. I ride a Bianchi Talladega road bike, that my oh so wonderful hubby, Jordan, bought for me after our second daughter was born. It’s a smooth, yet stiff, very responsive ride. There is only one problem… I absolutely refuse to attach my daughters tag-a-bike to it! It’s not meant for that kind of work! It would be like attaching my dad’s 5th-wheel to a Porsche. You just don’t do it! But here’s the issue, I want to ride with my daughter. It’s an absolute blast hanging out with her on the bike! And as much as I love cycling, I don’t want to give up the better part of a Saturday to go for the endurance ride I know I should be taking to stay in top shape. What’s a girl to do? I would like to propose you can achieve a great endurance ride by taking a shorter than usual training ride on a semi! A semi? you say… Yes, a semi! Read More→
