Quick Check In

Debating on if I should do a run today or go to the gym today...Or should I just take it easy since I'm so sore from the 100 workout I did the other day. Im thinking about just being lazy. I need to go to Academy and get new workout clothes soon. It's a necessity.

100 workout and day 4 of no smoking

Hey Hey Hey! Ive been feeling a little extra motivated lately and I love it. Starting off with the fact that I am 4 days strong with no cigarette! Woot woot. This is coming from a girl who used to smoke a pack-a-day. How was I ever able to run? I know I was bearly making it. Now I enjoy running even more that I can breathe correctly. I can't believe what a difference 4 days would make not only on my breathing, but with my senses too. I can taste things better and I can smell things easier. Sometimes thats not a good thing. Haha. And whats weird is that what gets me the most is the nasty cigarette smell. I cant believe thats what I would smell like all day.

Anywho i saw Alyssa's recipe and I had to go to the store immediately to buy the stuff myself. The only thing I did differently was actually by the skinny girl margarita bottle. I cant wait to try it later on today. I will definitely post an update on what I think. But thanks Alyssa for the idea.

I did the unthinkable today. Well at least the unthinkable to me...Have you ever heard of the 100 workout? Neither did I until yesterday. Today I decided to give it a try. Here's what the workout looks like.
  • 100 Jumping Jacks
  • 90 Crunches
  • 80 Squats
  • 70 Leg Lifts (the hardest part to me)
  • 60 Jumping Jacks
  • 50 Crunches
  • 40 Squats
  • 30 Leg Lifts (Again, the hardest part)
  • 20 Jumping Jacks
  • 10 minutes of jogging
  • 5 minutes of foam rolling *added in myself
  • 1 minute plank *added in myself

I challenge you to try this workout and let me know what you think of it and how you did. I think next time I will use a timer and try to get faster every time...

Alcoholic Smoothie and Tortilla Soup

Yummy Strawberry Banana Alcoholic Smoothie

In order to make this deliciousness you will need:
  • 1 whole banana
  • 8 strawberrys
  • 1 1/2 cups of Ice
  • Your favorite clear rum or vodka
  • Sugar
This equals happiness :]

So I had some yummy tortilla soup for Azul Tequila.
The bowl was sooo big I hardly even finished it.

I do love making my own tortilla soup and next time I make it I will share the recipe and the picture.
It is one of my favorite things to make

Ice cream and whatnot

todays workout was foam rolling, stretching, zumba at golds gym, and sauna for 10 minutes.

So I wanted to take a picture of my yummy ice cream from baskin robbins. I had a small scoop of mississippi mud, but in this texas heat I had no chance of getting a good picture bc it melted before I even took the first bite. How lovely.               
I was actually supposed to go to tcby for some semi~healthy ice cream...but that obviously didnt work out...

We decided to come wash and wax drews car so I thought I could get a little workout in...but he is hogging the foaming brush so I decided to blog...

Dinner tonight is al pastor and rice. The al pastor has been in the crock pot since 11 it is now 4. Should be delicious when we get home

Cheers to tha freakin weekend

I didnt want to much extra heres to his and hers

hungry hungry....hippo?

Todays workout included
  • stretching..(yes, it is a form of exercising)
  • 20 minutes on treadmill and 21%-30% incline
  • Leg Press --- reps of 130, 135, 140, 145, and 150 pounds :] *I still got it
  • Arms --- slanted bench press * reps of 40, 45, and 50 pounds
  • Planks ---60 second plank
  • Side Planks --- Both sides for 30 seconds each
  • More Stretching with this awesome machine they have at the gym
  • 10 minutes of Sauna
Overall it was an okay workout. I really wanted to focus on cardio but for some stupid reason decided that I should wear shorts...even though I never wear shorts to workout, and it was extremely uncomfortable. So, cardio is this weekend for sure. Also, my dumb Ipod stopped died. I guess its time to invest in another power cord.

For dinner I made some awesome chicken fajitas with orange bell peppers and red onions cooked in. On top we had cheese, cilantro and fresh onion on fresh tortillas with a side of rice. It was yummy but I was full after the 3rd bite. Sometimes I dont know when to stop and I've decided it's because I put 2 hours into cooking a meal to only eat 3 bites? Well that can reallycan. It could just mean more leftovers, and more awesomeness for the next day, or next couple of days.

Drew's skinny ass finished all two of his tacos and his enormous pile of rice and the first thing he said is "dessert?". What in the hell....I wish I could be like that. I don't really like to keep desserts in the house so I had to scrounge around to find him something. He ended up with 2 almond hershey kisses, fruit gummies, Nature's Valley Dark Chocolate and Granola, and a choclate milk bite bar. He ate everything. I honestly believe that as I'm writing this he is already in bed laying down. How can he do this and stay so skinny. I wish I had the metabolism of a 9 year old. But I understand that I dont that's why I have to workout...because I like to eat, but it doesnt just melt away like it does for Drew.

Well I'm gonna go check on him and make sure he doesn't leave me up by myself. Wish me luck

Small goals > Big goals

So I haven't done this in a while but I think it's something I need to do. I need a list of goals.

Short Term Goals

Goal 1: Workout a minimum of 4 times a week
Goal 2: At least 8 glasses of water
Goal 3: Eat more fruits and veggies

Long Term Goals

Goal 1: Run my Muddy Outlaw Dash in under 29 minutes. -September 15th
Goal 2: Be able to comfortably fit in shorts
Goal 3: One Day: Run a half marathon

The hardest part about running is getting started. To meet my goals I will take my clothes with me to work. Workout at work when I have hour lunches and when I don't I will go straight to the gym afterwork. On Tuesdays I will attend Zumba classes at 4:45. On Saturdays I will go to crossfit, and Sundays Zumba again. The other days need to be some sort of cardio. I can do this. I have to remember it's all mental. Especially this quitting cigarettes thing. It's the biggest thing holding me back because I dont like to run when I smoke because I cant breath correctly. If I can just quit and be mentally strong, then I can do it.
