Fight Gone Bad… It’s SO Good

I jokingly refer to last year’s Fight Gone Bad as my “single greatest athletic achievement.” It’s the only time I ever entered an athletic competition and placed. I won the intermediate division! It was a big day. BIG. DAY. And it was wicked fun because I didn’t have any expectations about how I was going to do before I started. I’d never done Fight Gone Bad before that... read more

FGB video

Man! The corporate overlords are really cracking the whip today, and my project team ordered lunch delivered. They tried to convince me to indulge with them — they tried to tempt me with the idea of a milkshake (!) — but I’m eating my Zone food, drinking water, and visualizing a kickass performance for tomorrow. (In my visualization, I am incredibly ripped, talented, fast, and somehow... read more

Doing Good By Fighting Bad

I worry a little that Mr. Randal Setzler is going to think I’m “single white female-ing” him… but I have to copycat him a little because he can do all the nifty physical tricks the characters in my book will do (and that I will some day, too) and his blog always has such good stuff, like… … this video about Fight Gone Bad. I like it because it doesn’t just showcase... read more

As you know, dear readers, I’ve been busting my butt since the beginning of the year, eating like a champ and working out six days a week to get in the best shape of my life.
