My last post was a bit of a downer. At three months into this fitness journey, I wasn’t seeing the results that I wanted to see. There are a lot of reasons for that, mostly a massive amount of travel which meant eating out, making it much harder to eat healthily and track my food, and just being away from the VIDA -- not to mention my learning curve on how to effectively lose weight and build muscle at the same time. I’ve had some stumbles.
We all have goals. They may be related to your career, family, health, or just about anything in between. But to accomplish your goals, you need to know how to set them. And it’s not as simple as saying “I want this to happen,” and expecting everything to fall into place.
If you’ve ever thought about giving Olympic weightlifting a try, VIDA is a great place to begin that journey. We caught up with Cat Doyle, Personal Training Manager at VIDA Fitness Logan Circle, to chat about how to get started.
I’m not going to let slow progress derail me. I refuse to. In fact, I’m going to take a deep breath, reset myself mentally, refocus, and channel it into motivation. That’s the only option I’m allowing myself. Because as hard as I’ve worked so far, I know I can do more and better. I obviously need to.

Springtime is prime time for road racing, but many runners find that they have been unable to stick to a regular running schedule over the winter. If you are signed up for a spring race, you can still safely get up to speed if you follow these guidelines.
