Audra was a self proclaimed hater of exercise until she made a New Year’s Resolution in January of 2016. She has proudly stuck to a regimen of working out at least 2 days per week (most of the time with her strength training buddy, Beth). Audra chronicles her exercise journey via this blog to encourage others to join the workout bandwagon no matter how young or old you feel.

Something I have never said before: “Be back in an hour I’m going to spin class!” Well, that is until last week. CycleBar Dunwoody invited Peggy and me to try a class. We were both worried we might die but sort of talked each other into it. … Read More »
Most people do not realize that I worked for AT&T for 15 years. For several years I worked at AT&T’s Atlanta HQ building at 1200 Peachtree Street in Midtown. My office was on the 11th out of 12 floors and our fitness center was one flight up on the 12th floor. … Read More »
I’ve never “Zoomed” until this week. Now I’ve Zoomed at least 6 times and have several more appointments on my calendar for next week. I kinda like it and plan to continue to incorporate Zoom into my post-pandemic plans. When my Fitness Together trainer dudes offered to train me via Zoom, I was very skeptical. … Read More »
So….Beth chose her newborn grandson over me and I had to find somewhere else to work out. Seriously, he’s way cuter than me so I totally understand. Thankfully my friends Karen Cannon and Christine Taylor talked to the owner of Fitness Together and had the owner, Russ Yeager, reach out to me about giving them a try.… Read More »
I have big plans to try as many fitness options in and around the Dunwoody area as I possibly can. My goal is to keep working out with Beth (my favorite option) for two days each week but to add one, maybe two days of another type of exercise to my weekly routine. … Read More »
What would get me up before 6 AM? The first thing that comes to mind is: catching a flight to a tropical beach. I’m not sure there’s much else for which I’d willingly get up that early.
When I told my friend Libba I’d work out with her at 6 AM at Dunwoody Baptist one morning I should have remembered that it is extremely difficult for me to get myself anywhere that early. … Read More »
My workout partner, Beth, is on a 10 day vacation and reminded me before she boarded an airplane that I needed to plan a different workout strategy while she’s gone, so that I don’t lose my fitness momentum. I’ve been talking to several “fit friends” about their fave gyms and am on a quest to try them all! … Read More »
So it’s been a few months since I wrote my last fitness blog entry. I continued to enjoy working out this summer with my oldest who was home from college. Much has happened since I last wrote though. UFC Gym Perimeter changed ownership and became Fitbox. Beth’s and my amazing trainer, Denise, moved on to Team Octopus in Sandy Springs. … Read More »
Gosh, I can’t believe that the last time I wrote a fitness blog entry was January! I’m still working out twice per week at UFC Gym with my trainer, Denise, and LOVING it! My extra pounds are coming off more slowly than I’d like because I feel the need to try every restaurant Lauren recommends….but… Read More »
I sit at my desk a lot. My neck hates me for it. My hubby is constantly reminding me to get up and move around to protect my back and neck. He’s right. I have no trouble focusing on work so could literally sit in the same position at my desk for hours on end…except for it kills my neck.… Read More »
