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!

Week 2 Pooch to 5k: Oh the Knee’s!
January 10, 2013

Holy junk! Ok so today is was my day two of week two of the pooch to 5k. Boy oh boy so my knee’s hate me right now. It’s obviously been quite sometime since I last jogged and I also was probably a little bit smaller. So I’m guessing its my weight putting a bunch of pressure on my knee joints. I’m suppose to jog 90 seconds and walk 2 minuets 6 times. Well. I only got to 1 1/2 times lol. It hurt. So, coming back home I looked up ways to help get rid of my pain and heal the knee’s. That’s when I found the R.I.C.E method. Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. That is what I am doing until I feel I can get back to jogging without hurting myself again. So during my break I will continue my yoga, do more knee and leg exercises, and going on the inversion table. 

Also, on other pages I saw that you should have some Ibuprofen. I don’t use ibuprofen any more so my mom found a natural pain relief. Tumeric and water!

  • 1-2 tsp. of Turmeric Powder or

  • 1 Oz Juiced Turmeric Root

  • 1 cup coconut water OR

  • Mix into fresh vegetable juice made in your juicer (celery, cucumber, ginger & lemon is a great anti-inflammatory juice to mix your turmeric into)

It’s not so tasty but it gets the job done!

Everyone enjoy your day! And if you are doing the Pooch to 5k with me don’t stop keep going I’ll catch up with you guys 🙂

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,

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

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!

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
