Workout Wednesday


It all started a couple of months ago with the holidays 2015. Mini me was sleeping almost through the night, and I said it was time to start exercising…push myself even more on a regular basis with the Hourglass Workout (workout program created by Lyzabeth Lopez) Since I could no longer workout after work (4pm) like I used to (as I pick up mini me at school, play time, diner, bath, bedtime stories etc….) it was time for a change to workout out in the morning at 6am. It is very hard for me to go a day without exercising. When I am on a holiday, I always look for a 30 minutes or 1 hour me time to workout at the park or a backyard. After completing the Hourglass Workout 3 months challenge I kept pushing myself and 6 months later….today the results are in! I wanted to share a little bit of my progress (see pictures below…these are not the best pictures but I was having fun taking them).

I realize that Mom (aka moi) is much healthier, happier when she is able to get some extra push in. Staying in shape and having fun while doing it is what its all about. I would be lost without the Hourglass Workout. For more on HOurglass Workout visit:

Lace Up Your Running Shoes For Nike Women’s 15K In Toronto


Running any race takes dedication and diligent training. Follow me on my Journey to Nike Women’s 15K on June 14th!

Last year, it was 18 weeks to a healthier, happier and lighter me while training for a 20K Run. This year, it will be another 12 weeks of hard training, by eliminating a few late night snacks and establishing more cross-training, as I usually prefer to bike, attend hourglass workout, swim or walk!


So lace up your running shoes. It’s time to start training for the next 15K race. See one of my training session here: 

Ps: I can “jump rope” for hours..I love it! #janikewomen15k #betterforit #letsrunto
