Lazy Saturday?? Heck no

Today I got to sleep in...Ohh it felt so good. I procrastinated most of the day. Didn't get much done. Was almost a lazy Saturday.  Then I decided I needed too get my workouts in.  I did p90X2 pap upper. I know I improved on some of the moves like the superman and the plank on med ball. I am getting stronger. Ohh yeah...that marks the first week of the third phase all done! I always do two workouts. So the next workout was Turbofire fire 30. I wore my 2 lb weighted gloves. I love it. 

Dinner tonight was lean beef mushroom stroganoff. Ohh wow it was so so amazing. I made it entirely from scratch. My daughter even said... Mom you can never buy the box stuff again.  I never intend too!

Hate to run when its cold

Well its like almost officially the cold season. I am so not looking forward to this. But I live in Ohio so i need to get used to it i guess. Time to break out the hoodies, sweatshirts, pants and leggings.  I am gonna try  not to be such a big baby about running in the cold. Today i am supposed to go for a run and i am already thinking of ways not to.  Well i need to stop that. Really i know that once i get out there i am going to be just fine and i am going to love it. Why because i want to succeed! I want my diet and my workouts to actually make a difference on my body!  The only way to achieve this is by getting it done and not being a baby about it! I will feel better when i am done! 
i wanna be successful!!
Well I did it I ran 10 miles in one hour and 18 minutes..and i did awesome...i was right..after i got out into the air and started to warm up i was completely fine. I really love when people crane their neck to watch me run lol it makes me run even faster now
Runnin 10 mile isnt pretty but its what i do!
I feel so much better now. I am ready to take on my day and i can be more calm about it.  Working out is my drug of choice! When i am out on the open road with nothing else but the music in my ears and the beat of my feet on the pavement it is a feeling like no other...especially when the right song comes on at the right time. I have not ran 10 miles in a very long was nice to get out and just let myself run at a comfortable pace.  I only stopped running because i had hit my calorie burn for the day and my legs were starting to scream at me! Ohh yeah now it is time to refuel with the healthiest meal of the day shakeology! I am gonna mix mine today with one frozen banana, one whole peach, a lil coconut extract, ice and a half cup of milk and some water and of course a scoop of the awesome shakeology of course!
The Healthiest meal of the day!

Well this weekend was amazing. I stayed on track. I didn't mess up on my diet...I kept to my workouts even though at times I really didn't want to. On Saturday I danced for 2 hours. Then in the evening I ran 3.3 miles in 23 mins 37 seconds. This is the fastest time that i have ran a 5 k..i am trying to get my time under 2 mins...I know I can do it...just gotta keep up with my training.  Sunday I started p90x2 phase 3 P.A.P. lower and wow I forgot how much of a workout that was its gonna be exciting to see what happens with this. Tomorrow I am starting turbofire...Ohh yeah I am so looking forward to the fun I will be having with this awesome workout.  Nothing is more fun than turbofire!
On Saturday night I planned out my entire week of workouts I plan on making the end of the year super successful for me.  I will reach my goals. I am determined to do it! I know I can!

I also went for a super fun run! I really love running now.. I really never thought I would say that ever. but now I do! I was almost late to pick up my lil ones from the bus stop because I ran a lil late on getting my yoga in… but I completed both…and I feel soo good that I did….this completes the recovery week for me. I am ready to start phase 3 of p90x2 and I am ready to start some turbofire! My diet has been really on track…I am not gonna let myself back pedal anymore…diet is 80% of the equation. tonight I made chicken parmesean from it was soo tastey and soo good for me297802_259553770832389_1227681480_n

September 11th we will never forget

Today is September most people I will never forget what I was doing that day when I seen what was happening across the country that day.  I was at the court house paying on my fines and I watched the other plane hit the tower! 



Today I am getting my workouts out of the way first…this and my blogging..I seem to procrastinate about blogging more than doing the actual workouts.  Well today is P90x2 yogax2 and Turbofire fire 60.  I love both of these workouts so it shouldn’t be too hard to get them done.  I have already decided today I am gonna get some major stuff accomplished! Starting early so that I can maybe focus on some downtime later on. Well I cant sit her blogging and get stuff off I go to get stuff done wish me luck!
