Fitness Confessions

by Nicci on 05/17/2011

  • Sometimes I do not want to workout
  • Sometimes I make ‘’lame’’ excuses
  • Sometimes I’d rather watch TV
  • Sometimes I hate the slow weight loss progress
  • Sometimes I cheat at my workouts: not completing sets or pausing my dvd player for many, many minutes.
  • Sometimes I’m just HUMAN

Then I remember I have my workout buddies that make exercise fun, during the those ‘’lazy, I do not want to do anything today’’ times. Plus, motivating tweets from healthy living blends.

As I’ve said in the past, my coworkers are awesome! 


It pays to have someone around 40 hours a week, helping keep you accountable.  We eat 2 out of 3 meals together and workout 5x/week.  I also can not forget my awesome trainer.

Today I went back to a ‘’live’’ Zumba class with the girls!  I was gifted Zumba Kinect for Christmas, and although I love the game….it still can not compare to the energy of a live class.


Check out this new video featuring Zumba instructors from a past conference.



Confession: I’ve watched this video 10x tonight while doing the dance! Winking smile

Do you have someone inspiring and motivating your fitness journey? Any fitness confessions?



Chicago Here I Come

by Nicci on 05/20/2010

Happy to say I will be attending the 2nd annual Healthy Living Summit in August.  I’ve never been to Chicago, so if anyone knows of places to eat and visit, please let me know.

I came home just in time to purchase my ticket Wednesday night after Zumba class and a 2 mile run.

Loving my new Yoga top, purchased for a measly $1.99 @ Old Navy. Woohoo gotta love that store; the tank kept me nice and cool during Zumba.

Freaking out…

I’ve been slacking in the running department lately…shame on me. I’m running this 5k with Kyra from A Foodie Gets Fit on Saturday for ”Run for Retrievers”; can’t wait to meet her in person.  I’m focusing on fun rather than time, but I know I may change my mind at the last minute before the race begins.

Snack Attack.

Last night called for a late night smoothie since my body is craving fruits. Some weeks I go heavy on veggies but slack on fruit; not on purpose.

My smoothie contained:

  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 packet Amazing Grass Green Food

 Happy Friday.
