Zumba Faves

That damn food day

I stopped participating in potlucks at work because they are just filled with unhealthy food and you always eat way too much. I participated in today's though because it was for the leadhands and I was excited to bring something new. I promised myself that I would enjoy the food in moderation (yeah, right) but everything was just so good. I brought 'fruit dip' which is a tub of whipped cream mixed with a package of strawberry Jell-o. I was going to buy the sugar free Jell-o but I figured no one else cares but me so I used the package that I already had in my cupboard. I didn't want to buy a crap load of fruit so I brought graham crackers to dip in the goodness :) I had a light dinner since I've been such a little piggy today: I had 2 eggs and a romaine salad with dried cranberries, pine nuts, and raspberry vinaigrette. Today's workout was Focus T25 lower focus but I wanted to do an extra workout to try to offset some of the junk I ate today so I also did T

Not my average Sunday

What a crazy day! I had a sleep over with my niece last night so her and my cat woke me up at 3:00AM - 4:00AM with meowing and "auntie I need to go potty". After a few more hours of sleep she was up for the day at 6:30AM and had me making pancakes and ready for the day all before 7:30AM. I've been sick since Monday night last week so I haven't worked out since last Saturday :( I'm not happy about this and I've definitely gained some cushion back between Thanksgiving, treats at work, and being sick. This was supposed to be week 5 of Focus T25 Alpha phase and I missed all of it - so now I'm stuck between redoing all or part of alpha phase, or starting the new Bodyrock challenge. Decisions, decisions. (#fitproblems) haha. Anyway, back to my crazy day: I've been up since 6:30AM running on about 4 or less hours of sleep. I should have napped while my niece was napping but I had to make myself lunch and got distracted with the Bodyrock challenge post w

Bodyrock October 2013 - 30 day challenge - links and workout breakdowns

The format of the videos for this challenge is you skip (or do some type of cardio) while you watch Lisa-Marie do the exercise and then she skips while you do the exercise. So if you follow the videos you'll be doing a workout twice as long or you can set your own timer and do them on your own. They do have the playlist on their Youtube for all of the challenge videos but I don't believe they have the workout breakdowns. This is for myself because I like having everything in writing and I'm just putting it on here in case someone else finds it handy too :) Day 1 10/30 for 65 rounds Part One - Movement & Strength: 1. Push-Up, Clean & Press - using the Sandbag or Ugi Ball 2. Squat & Press - using the Sandbag or Tbar 3. Tuck Abs 4. 1 Arm Clean & Press, Squat & Press & push Up - (Alternate L&R Arm) – using the Tbar weights 5. Lunge & Twist - (Alternate L&R) – usi
