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!

Oh, I Didn’t See You There.
July 17, 2012

Holy moly’s. Long time since I’ve written a post! So I woke up this morning, way too early, saying to myself “I shall write a blog today.” First things first, tis’ very very beautiful outside today. The breeze is just perfect, its not too bright and sunny, and now I’m listening to some old school music like, Duran Duran, The Police, and Phil Collins. Definitely a good way to start the day. Well, since this is my “Workout” blog. Lets say… I have been terribly lazy. I have been drinking lots of water and having shakes, but my diet hasn’t been the best but I don’t regret that ha ha. Exciting news though! Before my pregnancy I lost 22lbs leaving me at 198,something like that, and now being 8.5 months I am now weighing at 220. Woot woot! This is way exciting for me mainly I have only gained baby weight! Thanks to the ViSalus I have been able to gain at a healthy rate.

Much love,

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 :).

The Weekend Adventure, Into a New Challenge.
June 19, 2012

This weekend I was away in Tampa. My oh my was it beautiful there! I went to MetroCon. Its an event where you get dressed up in crazy outfits meet a bunch of people and have a lil’ fun.  I did not do any exercise intentionally but I sure as hell did a lot of walking. From the hotel, to the convention center, up and down stairs, around the convention center. I did this from Friday to Sunday ALL day. So I don’t know how many miles that would have been or what. But boy was I exhausted. I just got back home yesterday morning. I didn’t really do anything yesterday but just relax. I was still pooped out from the fun running around all weekend. Since, I had a ”day off” I woke up this morning feeling fresh and relaxed. First thing I did was have water and did 30 minuets of yoga! Now I am writing this blog drinking  more water then off to go for a walk with my dog. Today is going to be very productive.

My friend and I over the weekend!

Since my new challenge is ready to start I am going to do something new. My mom got inspired and thought of a way to make this Challenge more different for the body and mind. We are going to incorporate total self awareness into this challenge.

Awesome Quote 🙂

  1. I am going to write everything down that I do through out the day. Including my exercises, food intake, time spent on internet/video games, pretty much my time spent doing anything at all times. It will be written down.
  2. I will also write down the emotions I have during the day to each action.
  3. I will take note of EVERYTHING that makes me happy!
  4. I will list the 5 best things that happened to me during the day.

I am very excited to get started! This is going to be such an awesome adventure!

Make sure you go to take a look at my Mom’s blog and read about her challenge!

Maybe It’s His Fault
June 13, 2012

Sometimes all we see is the Result, and not the method. Don’t quit, don’t think it is gonna be perfect every time. Use your failures to make you stronger. This is the difference between a champion and a looser

Maybe It’s His Fault.

Back on Track.
June 12, 2012

For about 3 weeks I’ve been slackin.  I was doing yoga maybe once or twice a week and no walking. Ah my body was mad at me. So for the past 3 or 4 day’s straight I have been back on my walking and yoga. Today I am officially back on my routine. I am walking the whole neighborhood instead of half, and I’m doing at least 20 minuets of yoga. Woot go me! I’m happy, body is happy, baby is happy, and dog is happy. I am now refreshing my self with a blueberry, banana, and granola shake.  Life is amazing. It’s beautiful outside and perfect day for the beach. Hmm, may hap I will go.

My dog Addisson on the left. And Lucy on the right 🙂

Me and my blueberry banana granola shake!
