Once upon a time MizFit had no search button on her website.
As a result, she was none to good at providing tags or descriptors for her posts (ahhh the early days. how she hath grown & matured since then. wipes a proud tear from her eye).
As she endeavors to change that she’s received a number of emails asking questions about topics she’s already covered but which are entirely too difficult to find.
So here they are.
Kinda sorta organized.
Just like their creator.
The abs ramble.
Some chatting about/defining of weight training sets and repetitions.
Sample at home shoulder exercises.
Why you should always remember to stretch!
Lunging (Blair Witch style as the Bag Lady deemed it).
My protein shake
The Jen R. I Finally Found These For You clean eating post, what I like to nosh on & a snack suggestions snippet.
shits & giggles and there’s no way Im watching that clip again EVAH, the first facetime.
**Yesterday’s winner? Charlotte (cue confetti shaped like drawstrings & running shorts liners). Email me your address and the shorts & tee shall be on their way!

Unfortunately that protein shake link has only put more questions into my head!! How WAS the pea protein, and what did you add to it?
I ask because I sent Boy off to get himself some protein powder (he is vegan and has shocking protein levels) so he could make a shake he liked. He picked up some PLAIN pea stuff.
He blended it up with soy milk and banana and I tried some and BLEEHHH. He’s still drinking it because he thinks it’s good for him but I KNOW he won’t stick to it unless he thinks its yummy which he clearly doesn’t either. I’ve got him chucking some frozen berries in now, but he’s said there’s still room for improvement….
…any ideas? I WILL prove to him that food is NOT a punishment!
Thankyou thankyou thanyou
Crabby McSlacker saysJuly 16, 2008 at 4:14 am
I love that there is now a search button. You always have such great tips, but often I’m too lazy to put them into practice when I first read them. Then when I come back I can’t find ’em.
Now I can!
Cammy saysJuly 16, 2008 at 4:30 am
Yaay! It’s a bona fide research tool now. 🙂 Thanks for the links.
Mercedes saysJuly 16, 2008 at 5:18 am
Now you’re “all growed up”, as my friends would call it! OK, with us it still means we’re always a bit childish, but still.
Love the search button. I will be using it to return to links and videos often.
Mercedes saysJuly 16, 2008 at 5:19 am
Eeech. I just found some stray cottage cheese on my computer mouse. Such a slob.
MizFit saysJuly 16, 2008 at 5:38 am
I shall always be 13 Going On 30—-or, as friday will have it, 13 Going On 39.
Jen R. saysJuly 16, 2008 at 5:46 am
Many many thanks to you for finding the links and getting your clean eats out to all of us! I continue to be in awe of you- not only your amazing bod but your unbelievable focus and drive to be healthy and fit!
LOVE the search function as well.
thanks so much for all you do on this blog! I am addicted to it. Seriously. (better get in the shower or I’ll be late for work!)
MizFit saysJuly 16, 2008 at 5:51 am
thanks so much Jen.
I make not a cent from MizFit (yet. I know. I’m doing something wrong but I’m also a big believer in the Pay it Forward so I’m doing something right as well I hop.) And comments like yours make it all *so* worthwhile.
Deborah saysJuly 16, 2008 at 5:54 am
Thanks for the comments and encouragement on my blog lately. I really need all the encouragement I can get on this plateau.
Thanks for the links. Will check them out.
IzzyBeth saysJuly 16, 2008 at 6:09 am
Thanks – I’m looking forward to reading all of these. And yes, I’m alive. Thanks for checking on me.
Marcy saysJuly 16, 2008 at 6:16 am
THANK YOU CHICA!! I’ll be back in a couple months to show off my arms ROFLMAO!
MizFit saysJuly 16, 2008 at 6:21 am
Shall we do a posedown of all the MizFits in a few months?
A picture montage?
charlotte saysJuly 16, 2008 at 6:31 am
I had a question about the pea protein too! I can’t find it anywheres… GNC didn’t like the “but MizFit says it’s real!!” that I pulled on them. Vitamin World had never heard of it either. Max Muscle had heard of it but didn’t carry it. You get yours online?
Thanks for the linkage. You’re going to hate me for saying this but I have long admired your biceps (coveted, actually) but my new love now are your triceps. You should wear tank tops year round. Even skiing.
Every Gym's Nightmare saysJuly 16, 2008 at 6:34 am
Oh i am so down. i will pose you all to shame. not by having amazing muscles or anything- i justwatch a lot of america’s next top model, so, you know, that means i know how to model.
MizFit saysJuly 16, 2008 at 6:35 am
Mine is olympia labs (amazon!) and I’m drawing a blank on the brand of my plain pea (which I use for pasta and adore).
When I’m at the domicile (I’m a’thumb typin’) I’ll check.
And thanks Charlotte for your kind words….
WeightingGame saysJuly 16, 2008 at 6:47 am
thanks to the clean eating post I have purchased, oh, SIX bags of beef jerkey in the past two weeks. Expensive stuff. I need to visit CostCo and load up. I think turkey is my fave…
MizFit saysJuly 16, 2008 at 6:50 am
I’ll be lean and the Toddler will have to skip college.
hughsmom saysJuly 16, 2008 at 7:44 am
Here’s another question:
In my strength circuit I do not do anything exercises specifically targeting the triceps, biceps, and shoulders (a la Mizfit’s examples) Can I add them on odd days at home with free weights?
I’m not a fan of protein shakes either. Too much muss and fuss for me. I have to start mussing and fussing again “up in here” I think. I know it helped before.
Thanks for the Mizfit rewind. I liked.
sassy stephanie saysJuly 16, 2008 at 7:54 am
not feeling ripped off. i needed this kick in the pants. i’m off to the gym for some abs and weights! ta ta!
The Bag Lady saysJuly 16, 2008 at 8:02 am
Woohoo, a search button! Great idea.
Oh, and I loved watching the first facetime video again!
nancy saysJuly 16, 2008 at 8:10 am
I have to remember to look at this from home. My computer is older than I am at work.
suzanne saysJuly 16, 2008 at 8:17 am
I loved looking through the links that i hadn’t seen before! Thanks, alot of the tips on exercising i will be using 😉
Oh and way to go on getting a search button, it will make it a lot easier to find things.
FBG Jenn saysJuly 16, 2008 at 8:22 am
Dang you have some good archived content. Even your first Facetime is good! It’s you! Not quite as comfortable as now, but it’s fun to see the MizFit from the beginning. 😉
Hurray for searches! I’m now off to search for random words and see what your site comes up with…
mamarunswithscissors saysJuly 16, 2008 at 8:28 am
darn you…..keeping me glued to my computer longer than my allotted time! so much good stuff!:)
congrats charlotte…i’m jealous!
Sagan saysJuly 16, 2008 at 8:41 am
Excellent, its always fun to go back and read old posts and those ones that you linked are definitely top of my list of ones that I wanted to return to and re-read. Heart the search button!
ChocolateCoveredVegan saysJuly 16, 2008 at 8:43 am
I need to go read that one about why you should always stretch… too often, I get lazy and stretching goes out the window!
syd saysJuly 16, 2008 at 9:02 am
I love these summaries, thanks so much from all of us newbies, YAY!
And also, I am borrowing your theory – “I make not a cent … but I’m also a big believer in the Pay it Forward” I’m going to remember that for myself, too – since the only people who read my blog are my mom and a handful of others. But I love doing it anyway. 🙂
MizFit saysJuly 16, 2008 at 9:13 am
syd, in my opinion, life is all about the karma (to use the term more in the My Name is Earl way than the proper way…).
And the idea that if we hold on tightly to what we have with both hands we’ve no way to receive anything more!
It’s all about the give (& now I’m reading your blog as well ;)).
(Leaps off soapbox & back into BabyMama-mode)
Marelisa saysJuly 16, 2008 at 9:17 am
This is very helpful for new subscribers to your blog like me. I’m off to see your snack suggestions (this is where I usually fall of the bandwagon; I know, ice cream with whipped cream and marshmallows is not a healthy snack).
RooBabs saysJuly 16, 2008 at 9:27 am
MizFit, you’re the best! Someday I will have arms like yours (once I lose this top layer of fluff).
Thanks for the re-cap. I look forward to viewing vids when I get home, as they are blocked from my computer here at work (dang Big Brother). Also, thanks so much for your running “test drive” yesterday. So much good feedback from commenters- thanks guys!!
workout mommy saysJuly 16, 2008 at 10:40 am
love the search button!
and saw your mention in the blogher newsletter! go mizfit! 🙂
Brianna saysJuly 16, 2008 at 10:43 am
Look at YOU getting all organized and motivated. WooHoo!
The search button is fabulous. Like you.
Hannah saysJuly 16, 2008 at 10:48 am
Excellent! I looked for the clean eating post before and couldn’t find it- thanks for that link especially!
Your site has been one of my favorite fitness ones that has come under my radar. You are real and your ideas are doable. Your no excuses approach is so refreshing. And between your post and the comments from all, I usually get a few good laughs in every day.
John saysJuly 16, 2008 at 10:53 am
I need to do something about my tags, they are a terrible mess.
BTW, wanted to let you know I had a great run today. You should see the route map I put together. It is up on my blog now.
MizFit saysJuly 16, 2008 at 11:01 am
alas Im not certain the tags are better or (fingerquote) fixed (unFQ) so methinks there may be another post like this in six or 8 months.
you’ll have that.
Karen saysJuly 16, 2008 at 11:39 am
You are a cutie patootie in the best sense.
I heart MizFit.
Eileen saysJuly 16, 2008 at 12:27 pm
Love it. Thank you so much!
Robin saysJuly 16, 2008 at 12:53 pm
Love all the video links and the search button!
If you are still looking for an assistant, I volunteer. Our kiddos could keep each other entertained while I followed you everywhere video taping. (that sounds a little stalkerish. sorry.) Of course, the drive from Houston to Austin might get old after a while….not to mention expensive. Oh well.
Runner Girl saysJuly 16, 2008 at 1:11 pm
Ugh I can’t wait to get back into a gym to lift but I have to wait until September when I’m back at school. Till then it’s yoga, biking, and oh yeah training for a marathon 🙂
great links! I’ll save em for later!
MizFit saysJuly 16, 2008 at 1:14 pm
robin? You’d love the commute as I hear the traffic in houston is nothing (*wink*) and it’s cooler in the ATX!
Vered saysJuly 16, 2008 at 1:38 pm
I need to work on my triceps more. Biceps are fabulous. Triceps, not so much. Thanks. 🙂
Marianne saysJuly 16, 2008 at 2:03 pm
Um….running short liners? Am I the only one scratching her head?
I’ll add my .02… I keep your site on my tabs to motivate me to treat myself better. My arms are not like yours. They are, however, a lot less like great aunt Victoria’s. You did not want to be under her when she waved. A kid could get hurt…..
I wanna be 39 again…
MizFit saysJuly 16, 2008 at 2:07 pm
Pool Great Aunt Victoria….
And I love love love running shorts with liners.
I won’t have em any other way.
Or my running/workout *skirts* either (yes. a nonetoosubtle hint at a future Test Drive ;))
Mark Salinas saysJuly 16, 2008 at 2:46 pm
I am going to give the Protein Shake a go…
Mallory saysJuly 16, 2008 at 3:07 pm
It’s like Friday came early… thanks for the linkage. Back to work as its my last week 🙂
Mallory saysJuly 16, 2008 at 3:13 pm
p.s. the second tricep video links to the lunge video 🙂
MizFit saysJuly 16, 2008 at 3:26 pm
OOPS. shocking, mallory, that Id EVER screw that up, huh?
Ill fix when Im at the computer.
Lance saysJuly 16, 2008 at 3:29 pm
Loads of information all in one place! Or, at least links to all that info…
What to look at first? Hmmm…..
Gabrielle saysJuly 16, 2008 at 5:34 pm
Thanks for all the links; I’m adding your blog to my research sites
thickchick saysJuly 16, 2008 at 7:38 pm
I love it! The ultimate source for all things muscle-y.
Rachel D saysJuly 16, 2008 at 8:56 pm
🙂 Thanks for the links. The ab stuff is great!! I always love to have the videos.
Ayesha saysJuly 16, 2008 at 9:06 pm
Miz Fit, reading your articles has shown me the error of my ways. All these months of working out and hardly stretching?! My mind is blown.
But seriously, you are fantastic and motivating, and I really enjoy reading anything you write.
Valerie saysJuly 17, 2008 at 7:44 am
I so do not feel ripped off! I love the links, the first video was adorable and I feel like doing crunches now for some reason. 🙂 Which is a good thing.
Such a neat little package of all the basic cool stuff I missed in the dark ages before I found the wonderfulness that is you!
MizFit saysJuly 17, 2008 at 8:37 am
I know that up above if you click on THE BRACELET I ramble about how I struggle, with all the hats, err, bandannas I wear, to keep it all together—-but it bears repeating.
I really really appreciate all of your kind words—–entirely why I love blogging for you.
megkathleen saysJuly 17, 2008 at 4:39 pm
Thank you for that – I’ve been doing crunches wrong all along. I did them the Mizfit way last night and struggled to do half the number I usually do – so I think I’m finally getting a good ab workout.
Kevin Chrystal saysJune 1, 2010 at 12:34 pm
hi,really great pants,do you know where i can find that.thanks,bill
