The marriage of mind & muscle**

Tuesday, January 17, 2012


  I lifted weights for almost six years before I opened my personal training studio. Yet, even with all those years behind me, I naively thought none of it had become second nature. I *always* spent time with clients discussing form, breathing, tempo, stretching etc. before we even hoisted a weight. I was aware of [...]

DA Active & MizFit’s cleavage.

Monday, January 16, 2012


If you could have been a fly on the wall during the photo-shoot above youd have heard a six year old voice asking: Whoa, Mama. Are you supposed to show that top stuff? While I responded with a loving, serious explanation/reminder of what we show & what we do *not* show in public (which confused [...]

It’s time for a DETOX.

Wednesday, January 11, 2012


Who’s still in the need of some Post-Holiday Detoxification? *raises hand* Join me? Im spending the next week focusing on small steps toward cleansing my body of residual latke sluggishness & mental slowness associated with too much trashtastic movie viewing. Detox around here doesnt equal cleanse. Ren Man & I are focusing on lessening (the [...]

I am exceedingly soft of core.**

Friday, January 6, 2012


I tried to write this whole interaction as a traditional (if that word can be applied to the mishmash I call my blog) post. I wrote. I edited. I changed. I TRASHED. Each time I reread my writings I felt as though they didnt convey *strongly* enough how I felt (without massive overuse of bolding [...]

The personal post: call & response.

Tuesday, December 27, 2011


(…because what’s more personal than a pic of me wearing an adult onesie?)   The past few holidayweeks Ive received more emails asking about my personal life…my day-to-day…than about my workout routine. (tis the season? it seems people ask more questions about how I hangout during the holidays than how I stay healthy.  come January, [...]

Personal First Aid Kit (AKA the return of the cowboy hat).

Monday, November 28, 2011


Once upon a time I yammered about the importance of first aid kits. I was kindasorta a new mom and as a result BLANKETED the domicile (and car) with tiny kits crammed with ‘saving’ devices. Bandages. Medicine. Tweezers. Ointments. Ice pack thingies. Heat packs. Surgical tape. You name the medical crap & I had it [...]

Breaking all the rules.

Monday, November 14, 2011


The golden rule of vlogging (aka video blogging) is never to exceed two minutes. We’re all busy.  We’re all skimming rushed.  You lose your audience. That important message presented I give you some long ass vlogs Kelly Olexa and I filmed at Blog World. Indeed they’re (fingerquote) too long (unFQ), but despite the fact we’ve [...]

Skip it.

Tuesday, November 1, 2011


(my re-found love is now always ready & waiting by the front door)   I frequently lament how I dont love the cardio. I do it (for my heart and for my daughter.  Im a firm believer once we become parents we forfeit the option of losing our mojo). Yet everysinglesolitaryday theres a huge internal [...]

Wordless Wednesday: Go Team MizFit!!

Wednesday, October 19, 2011


Some viewing for you whilst you HYDRATE:   And the obligatory five second outtake:   **this is not a sponsored post. this post was unplanned until the child & I decided to rip into/Sharpie-UP a 6 pack of tees we found in a closet.  the filming of (one of) the results was all the Tornado’s [...]

Ahhh Im back to MUSTurbating

Wednesday, October 12, 2011


(with apologies to the amazing Albert Ellis) My MUSTS these days? I must take new group exercise classes so I can yammer about my likes and dislikes here on the blog. I must get to the Tornado’s school and volunteer once a week. I must try a new vegetable each week so that Im role [...]
