OHS Day 13: Week 4 Begins (Ryno)

Week 4 of the Operation Healthy State Boot Camp began in the rain, and Coach Kilgore ratcheted up the intensity, which pushed Dawn and Ryno to their limits. Ryno had to compete with Mother Nature just to get to the gym, but bad weather is no excuse for skipping a workout.  

OHS Day 13: The 5-second rule (Dawn)

Ever have one of those moments where you don’t want to get out of bed, or get dressed for the gym? A minute ago, it seemed like a great idea – but you let too much time pass before you did anything. The 5-second rule aims to circumvent your excuse-maker, also known as your brain. … Continue reading “OHS Day 13: The 5-second rule (Dawn)”

Operation Healthy State: Webisode 004

  It’s been three weeks of fitness and four weeks of nutrition changes, and Dawn and Ryno are starting to notice it in their faces. But when it comes to the scale, one of us gets better news than the other. Rebecca Turner says – the number on the scale is not the only marker … Continue reading “Operation Healthy State: Webisode 004”

OHS Day 12: All By Myself Part 2 (Ryno)

Ryno took to the Boot Camp course sans Dawn again(but she DID get a makeup workout in, so good for her!) and he almost pushed himself too hard. Ryno had dinner plans butting right up to his workout time, and he almost set his pace too high to get finished in time for dinner. He … Continue reading “OHS Day 12: All By Myself Part 2 (Ryno)”

OHS Day 10: Fighting Through Back Pain (Ryno)

When Ryno first tried to get fit a couple years back, he would push himself a little too far and his back would tighten up. Back then, he would’ve taken a day or two off to let his body recover, but that was before he had a better understanding of why his back was getting … Continue reading “OHS Day 10: Fighting Through Back Pain (Ryno)”

OHS Day 9: First Afternoon Workout (Ryno)

Ryno likes the fact that he doesn’t have to get up before sunrise to work out anymore, but he has noticed his energy level is TOTALLY different in the afternoon, compared to the early morning workouts. [We also started working out on Sundays, and since Sunday was Mother’s Day, Happy Mother’s Day!]

OHS Day 9: Breathless (Dawn)

We switched to the afternoon workouts this week, and you know what? It’s a little hot outside. I didn’t take that into account when I suggested we do our cardio on the track – and as a result, I’m a little out of breath. That’s okay, right? It’s not where you start, it’s where you … Continue reading “OHS Day 9: Breathless (Dawn)”

Webisode 003: Operation Healthy State

Dawn & Ryno finished their second week of fitness training and it couldn’t have come at a better time. (Both of them were struggling with that 6am workout!) Also in this week’s webisode: Coach Kilgore shares three basic movements that can get you started on any workout routine Dawn shows you how to put Rate Your … Continue reading “Webisode 003: Operation Healthy State”

OHS Day 8: It gets easier

It’s the end of week 2 and we decided to give you a joint video journal today. We had another Battle of the Sexes race (and this time, there’s video footage). I added some fun music to it, because I just never look as cool as I think I do when I’m working out! Here’s … Continue reading “OHS Day 8: It gets easier”
