About my house I've been gone a lot this week and were home long enough to leave little messes and barely time to pick up so over the course of the week messy house! And I get depressed when house is overly messy. So no motivation to clean or workout. So I drank some coffee. Preety strong stuff to as I need all I can to get outta this funk I'm in.lets say house is clean workout done and I've only been up1 hour.I was super charged wi... Thu, 16 May 2013 09:10:08 EST barely broke a sweat http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5356099 Well this morning I did Jillian micheals ripped on 30 level 2 and didn't hardly sweat or feel it. I did drink a cup of coffee before hand. I wonder did it give me energy or what because usually I do one of her workouts and about half way through I'm talking to the TV dripping sweat telling miss Jillian to shut up. Otherwise I have been working out for a few weeks now I may be getting stronger amd need to amp up my intensity. But I'm still proud that I got through it ... no sweat :) Tue, 14 May 2013 09:48:17 EST thank goodness for goodwill dollar days :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5351214 Oh yes we popped some tags. LOL. But seriously its the only time I can buy myself clothes and not feel selfish.plus by the time I get there the kids cloths have been raked across the coals. Tho of course I still look for the kids :) I love that my little girl will grab the ugliest thing and say its so preety I need it. I say oh yes guppy its beautiful. Then put the item back while she's distracted and keep going. plus my kids love the cheap-o toys. And of course thanks to my mom for buying ev... Thu, 9 May 2013 17:10:09 EST why yes...it was a productive day. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5350232 I did Jillian Michaels six week 6 pack l1. I did a little bellydance. And my favorite I walked to my dads and he may only live 7 blocks away but there are some serious hills plus I had a stroller with 3 kids. It was there and back. And I paid attention to my food. So I feel preety good. Wed, 8 May 2013 19:50:48 EST is a tummy tuck really the only way???? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5346241 Of course I don't have the money for a tummy tuck and would never really do it however I've read that a tummy tuck is the only way to tighten the skin on your stomach. I don't have a huge over lapping skin flab. But it looks like I have a wrinkle going down from my bellybutton. Its only really noticeable when I lean forward. I admit I don't really focus on my ABS mostly my glutes and total body workouts ( jillian micheals most days)to be honest. But is it worth trying to tighten my stomach wi... Sun, 5 May 2013 12:35:27 EST i confess i foget. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5343771 I forget quite often it seems to track my workouts on my spark page honestly I tract more on my home calendar and notebook. I really like spark more for the occasional blog and to read other people's blog as I find them motivating. Is it just me? Maybe I should track better but the only way I have to get on is my phone and bad reception. And my old fashion method of trackking seems to work better for me. So yeah I confess I don't use my tracking device much :/ Thu, 2 May 2013 22:42:50 EST starting a routine and goal system http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5341354 Tomorrow I start my goals and routine and reward system. Every month I have to workout mon-fri at least 10 minutes at LEAST 10 min. Every month I make my goal. I check my workout DVD wish list and at the beginning of the new year I get a new DVD. And I want as many new DVDs for the new year as I can get! Not to mention the energy ill get from my morning workout and possible body improvement. So lets do it. Tue, 30 Apr 2013 23:13:39 EST sleep...what sleep. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5335883 I am up late again. As a mom of 3 you'd think I'd just die as soon as I touch my bed especially since my kids go to bed at 9 pm sharpe every night unless they fall asleep sooner. Tonight's worry. O u know. Stuff. LOL I recently got my tubes tied. Why? Well I'm 22 and have 3 kids I'm a single mom. Enough said. Anyways the doctor informed me I had an excess amount of fluid in my body. He said he got it tested ( never said for what ) and said it was fine. But he did seem baffled. So I was lookin... Fri, 26 Apr 2013 00:38:45 EST i need to buy and ounce scale http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5335130 I'm tired of labels that tell how much calories *blank* ounces has in it. I know this is only a personal annoyance but some times its like why didn't they just measure in maybe quarter cup. Its something I have to get over . Thu, 25 Apr 2013 10:08:40 EST feminine rest day dance http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5329860 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/6/1/l618036935.jpg"> what do I do on my rest day. Steam up my self esteem. I bellydance. With instructional videos. They don't get your heart rate up so much but you really feel sexy in a classy way. Not trashy. Sat, 20 Apr 2013 16:55:03 EST my first day...went great! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5327547 I have to give myself some credit today. I did my Jillian Michaels workout. Sweat through it and didn't stop! Then went on to do a butt target workout from Stephanie Vitorono's body target 60 . I feel amazing! Months ago when I tried to start working out again I couldn't huff and puff my way through my workout without stopping today I went hard. Now to get my yoga on when the kids go to sleep.I hope tomorrow is just as good...it will be. BTW I know not many people will read my blog...if any:)...
