Bess Be Fit

A former collegiate athlete's journey of trying to stay and get as fit as possible in life after soccer!


Forget you SI.

My snack when I got home from job #1 before heading to job #2 was something I have heard about plenty but I’ve never actually made it myself.

Yes I have had Dark Chocolate Dreams PB, bananas, and honey on bread plenty of times before.  But I have never put it on a whole wheat wrap and microwaved it…until today.

It was beyond good…the melted chocolate peanut butter was heaven and anything with honey makes me happy.

It also filled me up well through training clients and I didn’t even need to eat my cucumber slices I brought as a snack!  That is, until the ride home, then I munched on some of them!

I counted…there were 42 slices.  In case you were wondering.

So yeah I feel like I went 180 degrees from delicious melty chocolate peanut butter to cucumber slices…its about balance people!

After all the clients at the gym had left I hopped on the elliptical to read the new US weekly and Sports Illustrated Swim Suit edition.  I thought, “hey…that will probably motivate me to work out even harder”…well I flipped through the magazine and got kinda pissed off because 0.00025 women in the world look like that.  So then I threw the magazine on the floor and thats when I realized…I had not pressed start on the elliptical.  I had been on for about 45 minutes and never pressed start! Arggh.  I thought Level 6 felt pretty easy.

So basically I did 45 minutes on the elliptical on level 1. Barely broke a sweat and got angry at how attractive Brooklyn Decker is. Whore.

Too bad I probably don’t have too large of a male population on this blog or I’m sure I’d have a record number of hits for posting the above picture.  Anyways, now I’m over it and not pissed off anymore.  They airbrush those photos.  Or at least that is what I am going to tell myself over and over and over again.

More clients in the morning and getting my own workout in!  Keeping my own bikini body in mind…What we all can hope for is the best that we can do as individuals.  Everyone’s best is different and that’s ok.  I love each and every one of you and you’re all BEAUTIFUL.  Probably going to sleep soon.  Yeah its Friday night and 9pm.  I’m awesome. 🙂

Question:  What is your workout for tomorrow or Sunday? I am getting a good weights session in with intervals on the treadmill.

Anyone else staying home on a Friday night like this awesome sista? Holler if you are…let’s virtually hang out.  Work early in the am=bed early.  Anyone going out tonight?? What are you doin?  Let me live vicariously through you please.  I promise I’ll return the favor tomorrow when I actually have a bit of a social life and pretend to be in college again.


**Edited to add:  Once I posted this I was wishy-washy over the message it was sending.  I am proud of my body and everything it has helped me achieve.  I have worked so hard for the muscles I have and I know that if Brooklyn wants to race me or challenge me to anything athletic I know I’d win and break her in half afterwards.  Just something about the magazine just bothered me, but I guess that’s why it will be the first and last time I check out that magazine 😉

P.S.  I wish to do no harm to Brooklyn Decker.  I am sure she is a very nice girl…I was just using her as an example. haha 🙂


You Tell Me!

Good morning!

First off, let me say that I am so excited about my online training page.  I have already heard from a handful of people and I am so excited to start working with y’all 🙂  If you are interested or just want more information, shoot me an email to so we can chat.  Or if you just wanna talk about boys or fashion we can do that, too.

For breakfast this morning I finished off the last of my box of Honey Bunches of Oats.  Sadness. (I cannot tell a lie, I am going to the store to get more today, although I probably shouldnt! I am also stocking up for the v-day giveaway) Since it wasn’t enough to quite fill me up, I had a mini cinnamon roll, too.  Heated in the microwave of course….delicious.  Maverick was salivating watching me take every bite!

That mini morsel satisfied me perfectly 🙂

Also, packed for a snack today is my typical 10am snackeroo of greek yogurt.  This time the toppings are a little different…dates and Kashi Go Lean Crunch cereal (that has as much protein as an egg per serving…says so on the box!) and a banana.

I promise there is yogurt under there…

I also packed a Special K Fruit Crisp as another snack for later in the day.

Another quick (and blurry, oops) shot of What I Wore!

It was 25 degrees this morning and its supposed to snow tonight…wahhh…PLEASE NO SNOW! (Although I’d gladly take a delay on having to go into work tomorrow morning…) but I am done with winter weather!  I’m ready to start getting a tan and wearing spring time clothes 🙂

However, my love for my Uggs makes winter time worth it.

Here’s a reminder to go enter my valentine’s day giveaway if you haven’t already done so!

Have a happy hump day!

Question:  What do you guys want to see more of on the blog??  Let me know…I aim to please 🙂  You tell me!  As long as its reasonable I’m sure I can accommodate ya.
