Happy Valentines Day!

I am so blessed to have a boyfriend who loves me… because I would seriously loathe this day if I was alone! lol

This past weekend and today I haven’t been eating somewhat healthy. I haven’t eaten super crazy or anything and if I did eat unhealthy I did it in moderation.  Chinese food is on the table tonight because today is Valentine’s Day. Though I’ve been eating like crap, I have been doing my Fab Ab February workouts consistently in addition to other workouts and drinking a LOT of water. I hope to get back on my grind starting tomorrow. I am also going to try to run/walk for 20 minutes then do Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 – Week 2!

I hope everyone has an amazing day 🙂

Week 1 & Done + Progress!

Hello folks! How is everyone coming along with Fab Ab February? One week down and I feel good! I’ve actually been able to complete my F.A.F workout during my Jillian Michaels workouts, so it’s like killing 2 birds with one stone! I won’t be able to do that as the days go on, so I am going to have to add on to her workouts eventually.

My lats are SORE. All those dead lifts and core exercises have me hurting right now! But I love the pain. Bring it on! Ever since I switched my mentality from “I have to lose all this fat” to “I’ve got to get stronger” I have been more motivated and more focused on working out. A part of me is kind of addicted to it. I am hoping I will get to the point where I can do a 30 minute cardio workout PLUS a Jillian Michaels workout. Right now I’m just taking it slow and steady.

Did I tell you I’ve lost a little bit of weight?

1.2 pounds lost! Not a lot, but if I can lose this once a week then I am well on my way!

Jillian is EVIL!

So along with the Fab Ab February workout, I’ve been doing Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 workouts for the past 2 days. That woman is EVIL! The workout is only 2o minutes but I am exhausted! I am only on Week 1 so I dread what she has me doing in weeks 2 through 4! I am going to try and do this Monday-Friday for the next 4 weeks.

*whew*

Time to shower, eat, and play Mass Effect 2!

Rhythm!

So I’ve been trying to workout 5-6 days a week for the past 2 weeks and I feel like I’ve developed a rhythm. When I get home from work the first thing I think about is working out. I would either get dressed and drive to the gym, walk to my clubhouse, or find a video online and work out in my apartment. Yesterday I went to the gym and visited my sister and her family so I didn’t get home until 10:30pm last night. But I still did my Fab Ab February workout!

I am glad that my mind is constantly on working out and being healthy. Though I have not stepped on the scale in fear I’ve gained weight! I hate the scale!

Happy February!

I can’t believe January came and gone so fast! Happy February everyone! Today is Day 1 of Fab Ab February! Pretty easy today. I’ll be doing these when I get home.

  • 10 Situps
  • 4 pushups
  • 10 second plank

It is also Day 1 of Black History month! Just because this is a fitness blog, doesn’t mean I can’t post about black history! It IS part of my heritage you know 🙂

Martin Luther King, Jr. would have been 82 years old today. He would be so amazed at the changes that have happened in the world since his passing.

“Let freedom ring from the snow-capped Rockies of Colorado!

Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California!

But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!

Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!

Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.

And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”
