I know. I'm gonna stop & gaze lovingly at the photo above as well she types pridefully pretending the whole 'net is shocked how quickly the Tornado is growing, too. The Tornado was four and, more even than the fact I wanna eat her face off she's so little and sweet, the photo symbolizes for me the lost art of exercise as FUN. Necklace in hand. Hair flying. Chortles of joy I ... Continue Reading

If you handed me a BOSU ball I'd mount, stand pridefully aloft for a fleeting few seconds----and ... Continue Reading

The secret to YOUR 2013 success.

resistance training at home

Welcome to January. The month where the universe attempts to exploit our insecurities by promising it holds the (expensive) key to a healthier, happier and thinner us. Most proffer a quick-fix solution to goal achievement which, while not entirely ethical, actually makes some sense. Who wouldn’t, if given the choice between fast and easy or arduous and sweaty, pick the former? (thats not ... Continue Reading

Juggling for fitness (video post).

Subtitle: As I mentioned to these guys Ive recommitted to learning to juggle. By the time I turn 41 I shall be amazing! mediocre. I’d love to say this topic choice stemmed wholly from a quirky desire to seek alternative fitness--- but that would be a lie. Inspiration came from a much more mundane place. As I lamented to these women my inability to juggle work-commitments/MizFit/mamahood at ... Continue Reading

Balance: what’s normal?

Video thumbnail for youtube video Balance: what's normal? - MizFitOnline

Miz, I am a new reader and, while I really enjoy your rhymes, I can't help but wonder: is there a story here? Am I missing something? This email made me laugh as, not only do I receive many like this (people seemingly perplexed by my penchant for rhyming/thinking that they MUST be missing an inside joke), the answer really is just a plain ole NO. No story. No missing anything. Im just a ... Continue Reading
