Back to Bodyrock

Hello my lovelies :)

I have decided that I need to get back to strength training so I started bodyrock again last week, as I had posted. I'm pleased to say that my abs are killing me and it feels great! I missed that feeling and I'm really excited to see what kind of results I'll get now.

I was going to try doing the new 30 day challenge from DailyHIIT.com but I've come to the realization that I do not like the format of it, with the different workouts (HIIT, lean, reps, etc.). So I am going to be starting the 30 day challenge they posted in May of last year. I loved it. I think one of the reasons I stopped bodyrock is because I hated having to decide on a video with no schedule to follow. I've also been slacking in my workouts too. I've been doing them since Wednesday but I know I'm not doing them as hard as I could be. Thursday was awful because I was soooo full from the food day at work and Friday because I was sore. Yesterday and today I did go much harder and I feel like I had a great workout. If you're interested in the 30 day challenge from May, I've posted all of the links on my Workout Journal page.

For some reason I'm just not enjoying it as much as I used to... maybe I'm just in a funk and I know that I'm extremely exhausted. Hopefully some rest and time will get rid of the stress and exhaustion. It was a long weekend but I was still up early both days so far. Saturday I had to drive my mom to a pick for a retreat at 7AM and this morning my friend and god daughter had spent the night so she was up at 8AM.

Tomorrow morning it will be just me and my Dexter, although he tends to be quite a squawk box... here's hoping he'll let mommy sleep lol.

Today I did Turbo Fire 30 and Stretch 10. My shoulder is bothering me tonight but I plan on starting the BR challenge tomorrow.

I also tried a new recipe last night and ended up making more tonight. Someone on my fit group posted their 2 ingredient cookies and they sounded like a great idea. All they require are bananas and oatmeal. I used 2 large bananas and mashed them with a potato masher. Then added in some quick oats until it was the consistency of cookie batter/dough. I have a nut/seed mixture that has pumpkin and sunflower seeds, cashews, peanuts, and dried blueberries so I added a little bit of that. I also added cinnamon that made them smell sooooo good. Bake at 350F for 15 minutes. I didn't feel guilty about eating these because... well come on, they're only banana and oatmeal. :)

I went grocery shopping on my day off this week (testing out the new Walmart super center) and bought bell peppers. I had saved this plastic container from fruit that I had bought in the summer and I had forgot about it until I moved, so I cut up all my peppers and have them ready to munch on and add into stuff in this convenient container. 

This was my dinner the other night. Nothing special, egg skillet with the peppers above, with some onions fried in coconut oil. With a side of steamed green beans.

Alright! I need to get off the computer, my eyes are feeling crossed. Good night and I will post my scores tomorrow from the fit test... again lol.
