I haven’t talked much about my workouts lately.  I know everyone just whispered a collective “thank you” to themselves as they read that sentence.  But, to stay true to the core of my blog, I have to bore you with some training stuff every once in a while.

So today’s topic is…..would you rather have me or Jillian Michaels as your personal trainer?

Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait!  Before you answer, let me spice up the pot a bit:

With me, you get exclusive use of a 50,000 square foot workout facility.  Or, as I like to call it….Target!

I hold personal training lessons on Aisle 13, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3-6 p.m.

We usually start with shoulders.

Then, we move on to curls and work those biceps.

So what, if Jillian Michaels has The Biggest Loser Ranch.  You can come to my Aisle and work out with a pretty big loser any time you want…with the exception of holidays.  My Aisle gets a little too busy around that time.

I even have my own workout DVD’s.  Well, sort of.  They’re all in black and white and held on reserve with store security!

The decision is yours.  Choose wisely!


As you know, I’m in the second week of training for my first marathon.  If you’re not familiar with my work schedule, it’s basically 3 days on and 4 days off.  On the days I’m not working, going for a run or cross-training is pretty easy to schedule.  However, on the days I work, finding the time can be much more difficult.

Enter the medicine ball:

10 pounds!

I work from 7a-7p, which means I pretty much wake up, go, come home, eat, and fall asleep.  Lately, I’ve been feeling miserable about missing runs on the days I work.  The last thing I want to do, is get to April 30 (day of the race) and not be prepared to run 26.2 miles!  So, Kurtrina and Baby D went and got me the ball I’ve been talking about.  I told him I wanted one for Christmas, but he  thought it would end up being more of an expensive, yet ugly, decoration than a piece of useful exercise equipment.

Notice the toys everywhere?

After a 12-hour day at work, I have to admit it’s not easy to come home and work even harder for another hour, but it felt really good….the after-shower I mean, not the workout. 😉

And, if those pictures weren’t bad enough…

Why did I post this picture? Seriously?
