Week 2!

Well this is my second week in to my new challenge and I am feeling great. I am having some fun with this new found fitness freedom. I have started to create a playlist of music to work out to and have started dancing again. Yesterday a really good song came song and I found myself dancing instead of doing my usual warm up. 10 minutes of dancing was was enough of a warm up because I sure could feel my leg muscles working.

Yoga! what can I say but "Oh where have you been all my life?" I am pretty speechless as to the effects I am feeling only after 3 total yoga workouts. I always had this idea that yoga was just for relaxation and composed of easy moves that didn't workout you out because you are basically held in stationary postures. I never dreamed it could work you like this. My muscles are sore and I can really feel them. Especially my upper body, arms/ chest. Someone even noticed my triceps the other day at work and said I am getting some definition. Really? Only after one week?

Of course my arms are not swimming in fat either like my lower body and belly. Is it me or does it seem when the fat falls off it just slides down instead of evaporating? No upper body fat really maybe just a small amount compared to the 10 ton tub of lard I call thighs. Oh why? Oh why? does the fat still shine on these thighs of mine? I can't explain it so I will file this question away as a U.F.O (Unidentified Fatty Object)


Since I am in such good spirits I think I will do a weight in on Friday just for shitz and giggles. I was contemplating on whether or not I should do my measurements but then again it may be image damaging if I don't see any changes in body composition. I know! I know! it has only been two weeks since I started this new challenge, so you know if you haven't noticed by now I can be a bit impatient about things but I do it quietly heheheh. I am slowly learning to accept things as they are and wait patiently for things to change. Easier said than done IMO.

One another level I just want to say that my heart and prayers are with those families in CO. As I reflect on this tragic event all I can say is "What is the world coming to?" are we in total chaos and lost our minds? or is there some government experiment going on and they put something in the drinking water? What have we as people lowered ourselves to? What is this sicko's motive to go and gun down people in a movie theater? Words just can't express my emotions on this and how I view society today. I could go on and on on this subject but I will refrain or this will be an all day post lol.

Sorry for the short post, I wanted to add ,more but my eyes feel like they have bricks on them and I need a nap after a long day. Have a happy Tuesday!!


  1. I have heard good things about yoga and I've been toying with trying to find a good place to go! :-)

    Keep up the good work. Compliments will keep coming your way!

  2. Thanks I just do my yoga at home, since we can't afford gyms right now. The Jillian Micheal's yoga meltdown is great and I am wanting to find more yoga dvds to try.

  3. In order to keep great shape you have to develop healthy eating habits. I’ve read somewhere that even if you attend gym every day but keep eating junk food – you are wasting your time. Lots of useful advices on proper nutrition I have found here http://bit.ly/1gM5EyX. They provide special tips for women and lots of motivative ideas!
