BLC17 Amber Warrior Creed ~ signed, sealed & delivered

Monday, September 05, 2011


I am a powerful Amber Warrior.
I can weather the storms.
I am fierce; I am fabulous; I am determined.
My tenacity comes in many forms.

I commit to my team members and myself,
To embrace accountability and strengths,
And vow to pursue clean eating and health,
And to obtain new heights and great lengths.

I shall rally with determination and grace,
Each and every time that I fall;
I will give of myself and support my friends,
And will extend a helping hand to all.

I will start each new day,
With commitment in my heart, I look to the future with pleasure,
For am I am an Amber Warrior; I am a Spark;
Yes, I am successful beyond measure!

Insanity ~ Day 24 ~ Cardio Circuit

Sunday, September 04, 2011

Yesterday, my head told me to take a break ~ maybe I pushed too soon but it was not allowing me to lower my head past my shoulders without giving me so much pressure & pain.

Today ~ It's lingering but I felt good enough to try this workout! Felt GREAT! And my head did not explode emoticon
I followed this with a nice cool down Crunch ~ Yoga, Pilates Blend

Insanity ~ Day 23 ~ Cardio Power & Resistance

Friday, September 02, 2011

It sucks being too sick to workout ~ this cold really kicked my bee-hind, but I'm feeling better today and I was able to push through this workout ~ it felt soooo good and yes, I'm super sweaty ~ maybe the cold left with all this sweat.
T.G.I.F. emoticon


Insanity ~ Day 22 ~ Pure Cardio plus Abs

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

OMgoodness ~ why did I have to get this darn cold right in the middle of my challenge? I struggled getting through this routine but did it at about 50% ~ hopefully I can sweat this mess out.
