April Pictures and Workouts

Tuesday, April 03, 2012

Alright well I finally got the courage to take the pictures.. This is me at 135lbs (sweaty after my run)

I am going to start doing monthly pictures so hopefully I can see results its hard to look at yourself in a mirror and see them- I think it will be better for me to post them on here and see results. Problem- Last time I did pictures I had a Spark absense for a while and had no progress. Goal- Not to let that happen again!

Alright Last night- I got a headache at work all afternoon. and I had to go grocery shopping afterwork too.. So I got through that by telling myself I could lay down for 20 min when I got home. So I put all the groceries away and laid down for an hr.. But I said I had to get up at 7 and if all I did was pick up the house no more sitting down. Ended up getting myself to say go walk to the park and just take a walk..

well That turned into a walk to the park 3:25 Min. Then 2 Laps jogging around the track a little over a mile in under 10 Min and then I did 2 laps of 1 min sprints and 1 min walking that I did in about 9 Min. So in total I had a 2 mile running workout last night and then I walked back home. Total time was 26 min and burned 248 Calories..

This morning as a goal to work out in the mornings I got my butt outta bed at 6:15! Slept in my sports bra and shorts were by the bed. Got a glass of water and jumped in place for a warmup and knocked out Body Rock Serenity??
Pushup- Toe Touch
Burpee Pushup Tuck jump
Bag Swings 20lbs
Side Lunges

Ab Bonus
Oblique Planks with toe taps Right and Left
Star Abs

Finished that 16 Min and 161 Calories and grabbed a sweatshirt. I was sweating soo bad I needed a cool down- took a walk around the block about 10 Min for total calories burned 230!

Not only did I work out this morning- I was to work on-time and early and I made healthy choices for Lunch and Breakfast. Working out in the morning might be my key to staying healthy and on track through the day.

Tonight we have easter at my gmas and we are ordering Pizza- doesnt even sound good to me but I will show up and maybe have a PB&J or something.

Happy Tuesday All!! Have a Great Day

Keep Calm and Workout!

    Great progress pics! I think you look fab as you are already!!!! =]

Yeahhhh morning workouts work GREAT for some people!! For me, the few times I have worked out first thing in the am, I'm dragging alllllllll dayyyyyyyyyyyy.. I find that working out mid morning or mid afternoon/noon works best for me =] Gives me a chance to wake up, eat food, digest said food, and THEN rock it out! haha

Have fun at your grandmas tonight!!! A piece of pizza wont kill ya ;-) Moderation is key!!! You've got this! =]

March Calendar

March Calendar and April Goals

Monday, April 02, 2012

Yikes- This is worse than I thought!

Well March wasnt Such a Hot month for me- Started off well and then Fell off the Wagon a little bit- but I will say that my eating has improved a lot living with Brian again and cooking. Also with all the house work I have been doing it isnt like I am laying around doing nothing- So I have forgiven myself for March- but want to improve in April

April Goals
emoticon Get outside and Run/Walk 3 days a week Minimum!

emoticon Body Rock 4 days a week

emoticon Workout one weekend day- this will be hard since my weekends are filled with showers now but I will do it

emoticon Workout in the morning-Even if its just a light jog and stretching

emoticon Keep up the house work and keep moving around the house

emoticon Walk at lunch

emoticon Up the protein! Smoothies are being added to the morning menu

Tonight I am stealing another one of GIANTMICROBE's workouts.
There is a park right down the street from us and the trail around it is about .57 miles So tonight I plan on doing 5 Laps. first one runnning then 1 min intervals on 2nd lap then run 3rd intervals on 4th and walking cooldown on 5th unless I am still good then I will finish with a jog and walk home. That will add a little over 2.5 miles to my cardio for the day since I also have a 2.5 mile walk at lunch.

Then I am headed home to do the Body Rock from last week Dont know the name but

50 Seconds on 10 off
1 Leg pushup-toe touch
Burpee, Press up, Tuck Jump
Bag swings - 20lbs
Side lunges

Plank over/under right
Plank over/under left
Star Abs


Today is time for me! I have to go grocery shopping after work but then I will not feel bad about taking an hour out of my night to workout!

    I don't think your calendar looks bad at all! I think you had a great month! Actually I am thinking of taking YOUR idea for April and indicating days where I do both strength HIIT and cardio. Right now I just make a regular HIIT day yellow even when I do add cardio.

Let me know if you enjoyed your run!!!

    AWESOME that you did a calendar too!! I'm totally posting a pic of mine in my blog today! (literally just took the pic right before I read your blog! lol! I love being able to look at the month and see what my pattern was.. whether it be good or bad, it's a great point at the end of each month to asses what we did a either improve from there or just stick with it! =] (Or change the routine even!)

You're doing so awesome girl! That cracks me up that you posted the february calendar.. gotta change that! But you've had a BUSY month between moving in and getting all that stuff taken care of.. good for you for giving yourself some slack!!!

Just remember, all it takes is 30 minutes out of your day to set aside and GET IT DONE! So even with all the showers and weekend events, I know you can do it! =D

Wedding Shoes picture

Friday, March 30, 2012

Yeah my wedding is still 16 Months away but I found these shoes online and I think they are adorable!

I think if I found white ones I have a few creative friends that could whip something up for me. I think it fits my style but then I would have to go for a more modern dress rather than a romantic dress.. I think I am starting to lean that way anyway. Havent tried any on yet though.

August is the date for dress shopping and date for me to be looking my best. I dont have a weight loss goal anymore- but as long as I keep up the work I am sure I will be looking great by August.

    Damn straight you will look AMAZING by august if you keep up what you're doing! =] Have you done any more rounds of squeezes recently? I did them after my workout yesterday with my mommy and my ass is SORE today!!

Those shoes are SUPER CUTE by the way =D When my hubby and I got married I was about 6 months pregnant so heels were NOT in my plan at all! haha.. so I had these little measly 1inch heels, but now I kind of wish I had worn flats.. lol! I think you'll find that there will always be little things that you will change about your wedding years from that blissful day... but having the time to make every little detail important and pertinent to YOU makes it all that much more special =] If you could find a friend that would decorate shoes for you then you will forever have those as a memory!! =]
