Night Time Jogging
January 23, 2013

I just gotta say the past week I have been jogging at night, and so far its my favorite time to jog. Its been nice a cool so it feels amazing. My dog Dakoda is pretty happy that I keep bringing him. I’m still doing my week 1. Its getting way easy. Probably by the next few days or even tomorrow I’ll be switching to week 2! By the end of this Challenge and Pooch to 5 k I’ll step on the scale and see how much weight I’ve lost, can’t wait! I already feel thinner! Even jogging I have this ” That’s right bitchez” attitude. LOL just wait.

Enjoy!

I’m Back!
January 19, 2013

Woot! Knee is healed and I’m back to jogging finally! This last week was so lazy I went on the inversion table for a little bit but just laziness after that. But It feels good to be back jogging. Golly I love it so much!  This time I took my other dog Dakota, an American Bull dog, very lazy but he did great and at a wonderful pace. Now he’s sleeping like a baby lol. My mom and daughter also came along! Stella loves being outside in the stroller.

Also, what I have decided to do is repeat the weeks until I master them. So, I am back to week 1. I’m thinking it may take me about 2 weeks , maybe even less,  to have a steady pace. I’m so done with being non motivated to do nothing, it doesn’t bring me any closer to being where I wanna be. So, Summer here I come and watch out I’m bringing as many people I can with me on this journey.

If you have been following me along with my Challenge and Pooch to 5k comment below I would love to see how everything is going with you and how you feel! If you have just found this blog come on and join me! Its So much fun to a better, healthier lifestyle.

Dakoda!

Dakoda!

Holy Moly: Week 2 Pooch to 5k
January 8, 2013

Well, I didn’t do so bad the first week! I didn’t do the whole 7 days of jogging but I did 4 days!I still did my yoga, jumping and inversion table all week. My body is very happy and so is my dog. I didn’t have much problems with my body feeling discomfort, but my knee’s are a little soar. This hasn’t happened to me before but hey its also been about 5 years since I us to jog regularly.

This week is going to be a little different. Jogging 90 seconds the walking 2 minuets. Today it wasn’t that bad actually. I just got to remember next time to bring water. Silly me.

Week 2

Week 2

As far as my resolutions go I have been doing every day of my 30 day art challenge. Obviously I’m on to losing my weight. Which is amazing! Visalus and just made the challenge even more exciting! I’m about to start reading The Pillars of the Earth. So far so good! ALSO, my birthday is in 16 more days! Woot, woot! Her I come 21 🙂

Well, I hope you all enjoy your day! This is going to be our year folks. Get ready!

Much Love,

Oh, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Again another beautiful day here in Florida. Went for a wonderful jog, it couldn’t have been any prettier really. Had my music blastin’, dog by my side, the breeze was just perfect and the heat was at a perfect temp. Like, jeeze I gotta say it is just a perfect day to start off the New Year.  This year is going to be the best year ever. No if’s and but’s I will be checking off all of my list before 2014.

.::My List::.

  1. Shed the fat suit. This will be so easy! Other years I just didn’t give it my all, this year on the other hand it will be off. I will enhance my endurance. By the end of the year I want to be jogging 6-10 miles a day, be 120 lbs, build my muscle mass, and take some sort of martial art.
  2. Getting in touch with my creative side. I want to get into some sort of art class. Learn how to draw better, take more photos, and crochet. May hap a little creative writing. that brings me to:
  3. Learn more. I want to get into school and get my brain to work. Take classes I’m only interested in taking, and read more books.
  4. Enhance my homesteading skills. I want to make half of my yard all veggies! Learn how to collect water for the plants, etc. By the end of the year I want to have all of the fruits and veggies we eat come out of our back yard. I’m also dying to have chickens again boy oh boy do I miss them! With learning more homesteading skills I would like to learn survival skills.
  5. Getting in touch with my inner self. I want to do more meditation. Release all of my fear and sadness and become at peace with every obstacle I run into.  Let everything go. When I feel I need to say something, say it and not hold it in. Be more free.
  6. Be more sociable. Get out there and meet more people. Break outta my shell a little bit go out more often. Example; beaches, hikes etc.

I believe that is it so far! Today I am starting a 30 Day Art challenge with a fellow Facebook friend! Like I said before this year is going to be the best!

Everyone have a Happy New Year! Make this a year to remember.

2013

Much love,

Whoa!: Week 1 Pooch to 5k
December 30, 2012

Hello there! Well, as you know I haven’t posted since, hmm lets see… JULY! Holy moly. Well, first thing is first.  Stella has been born! She’s now four months. Yeah its been a long time!

So, now since she’s four months I think its about that time to start my Pooch to 5k. I coulda started some time ago but I’m starting now.  I’ve been doing a jog/walk thing for two day’sish but today is my official start of the first week. This has been my routine: wake up, feed baby, put her back to sleep, jump on the mini trampoline for 5 minuets, go on the inversion table for 5 minuets, do some yoga for 10 minuets, then take my dog out and go jogging. Golly I love it! I have missed jogging so much! I had a dream about 4 nights ago just jogging everywhere and it felt so good. So, I put my foot down and said  ” That’s it! Time to start jogging.”

1st week

1st week

I will be doing this for everyday of the week not 3 days like this says. My “mentality laziness”  would just be very happy with taking 4 days off as a ” oh just don’t do this any more.” So 7 days it is! I have been also taking a Pro energy drink during my “in the house” work outs. Then as soon as getting back from jogging I have my shake. This morning I had a Cherry Banana Shake. Very, Very yummy! Wanna join me in my Pooch to 5k  weight loss journey? Click those words and get started. 🙂 Oh by the way you don’t have to have a dog to start the Pooch to 5k so that excuse is outta your way. 2013 bring it.

Not only is my reason to just to lose weight, be healthy and get my doggie happier. I’m also getting ready for this summer at a little convention I go to. I am so ready to be at my best  and look my best. My sexy little self is ready to shed off this fat suit.

And this is my baby girl!Stella<3

And this is my baby girl!

So Slow.
June 28, 2012

After this crazy week of Tropical storm Debby I have been lazy and getting more tired from this lil’ one Stella. I did have a lot of fun during the storm. Literally had water front property for bout half a day. The street right next to us was filled up so much that we did’t even get to the deep end of it. Yes, we went into the water with who know’s what was in that, maybe alligators, but we had a blast. Dogs got to go swimming once everyone saw our dogs they got theirs out. It was like a little neighborhood block party.

A video my mom took!

Other then the storm I have been bad and haven’t done my walking since then. It is now beautiful outside and I will go for my walk today Addisson will be pretty excited about it :).

Oh Rain.
June 24, 2012

Rain rain rain. It has been like this all week! I’m loving the rain for bringing in nice cool breeze at night. But boy all the gloomyness is makin’ me a wee bit tired. I  have been keeping up with my yoga though! Walking, eh not so much I only did a half walk yesterday but it did feel really nice. Today, I’m hoping it slows down on the rain so I can go for my walk.  Hm, I would love to have a rain jacket! For me and my dog! How cute would that be. Then I could say Ha Ha to the rain and go 🙂 Oh another thing I’m really lovin’ about the rain is that my garden is SO freaking happy. Its all lushes and green, some flowers are starting to pop up. Ugh, I love it.

The front yard !

This would be a great lil’ jacket for my dog!

Everyone have a fantastic day!

My story
June 10, 2012

I’m just going to write a real quick first post. ( I think)

For as long as I can remember I have always been over weight. I decided to put an end to it January this year. I mean isn’t 2012 about new beginnings. So, I got right on it and joined the Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge! I haven’t looked back since. I started the challenge at 220 and ended my first challenge at 198. HOW awesome! 22lbs gone!  Then I got some big big big new beginning news. I found out I was pregnant on my birthday! So what am I to do!  I made some adjustments I stayed on the Challenge, but not the way you would think. My new priority was to be as healthy as possible during this pregnancy and knew I could do it with the help of the Body By Vi Challenge. So now I add 2 shakes and I don’t replace meals. This is helping me add massive Micro Nutrition to my body. And its helping me gain perfectly instead of gaining too much weight. I am now in my 3rd trimester. I’ve only gained 18lbs which is exactly how much I should be gaining. My doctor is thrilled and I feel good… Fantastic really.

Say, what about my physical exercise? Well, I love yoga! I just has to make some adjustments, like no twist no inversions no cobra (damn) but that’s okay I just keep going and enjoying how yoga benefits my body. I also go for walks. I take my dog with me. Her name is Addisson, and she’s going to be a really good sister/nanny.

What about after the baby?! Pooch to 5k program is coming up! ( my mom is doing that now ) I’m going to get more involved with my yoga practice. I’m going to do Vinyasa. I am also going to do crossfit ( I already do some now ).

So here you will get to read about my physical fitness and nutrition exploits. My purpose is to inspire and entertain YOU! Lets have fun!

My first Challenge
