Good Morning Ladies Well my attempt so head to bed was a little more successful than the previous evening..I had to shut the Heat vs Thunder game off since I was getting far too fired up that late in the evening..LOL.. I completed my Pure Cardio class this morning..It is a little cloudy here and a little breezy so I am hoping that it won't be as brutally hot at work today.. Well I better keep it moving, have a stellar day all

Back from my day..Well despite the fact that it was windy and a bit of an overcast, it was hotter than the seventh circle of Hell.. As the clouds got darker as the day progressed, it started to sprinkle around 2:30 ish and full out stormed by the end of my shift.. We managed to put everthing away before the heavier stuff rolled through..

I arrived home a little earlier than the normal with all of my doors inside my place open..I am a stickler for shutting every door since I shut off the A/C when I leave and open a window in each room to "freshen" the air a bit(no sense in wasting power in an empty house right?)  OCD much? LOL anyhoo when I finally got around to checking my messages, sure enough my landlords called to say that Terminex was out for a routine spray.. Pretty embarassing since one I have clothes and mags strewn all over the place..I like to call it "organized chaos" but some people might think differently...Hahahaha I completed a Cardio Ab class and I am off to see how your day went and get some fuel.I hope it was a good one for you all!

During/post workout- Recovery Fuel

B- Almond breeze shake with whey protein, 1/2 banana and blueberries

L- Tuna and Egg salad with Provolone, lettuce and tomato.. MG and seeds Tortilla chips..Fuji apple

S- Chickpea Salad, smoked fish spread with crackers and hot sauce

D- Lean pork sirloin roast.. Steamed Cauliflower... Spinach, cucmber, julianned carrots, red pepper, lf cheddar and jack, red wine vin. lemon, splash of evoo.. 2 Glasses of malbec

1 1/2 gallons of water..Casein Shake(pre bedtime)

Progress as of today: 93 lbs lost so far, only 0 lbs to go!

Looks like a good day yesterday and you are headed for another one today! Rach is doing OK. She has kept in touch more this trip than any other - I think she is a grown up now! I hope you are able to stay cool out there today!


LeakingLife on 06/20/2012:
Have fun!

I'm sure Pure Cardio is brutal, can't wait to try it at some point!

hollybelle on 06/20/2012:
Oh, I so hope you can go next year. Rach didn't tell me much about it, but I know she wished she could have more people to share a room with to keep expenses down! Since she lives at home, it's not so hard for her to save....hahaha. Anyway I spoke too soon - I havent heard from her at all today. I have been busy trying to find a home for the puppy her bible study group member has up for adoption. Friday is the deadline. I have a couple of leads, but no takers yet! Yes, I cannot wait to ride tomorrow. I have lifted weights twice today, though and that has been beneficial. Rach did the 21 day restart, but she worked out - are you not supposed to work out? Also - there was one packet of green stuff she did not care for, but put orange juice in it and said it was "OK".

Hey Ladies! back from my day..It was decent and the day started out pretty slow but all in all it was a good day. I totally forgot to bring my chickpea salad(luckily I didn't leave it out on the counter at home) My barback happened to have an extra protein  bar so he was kind enough to give me one.. Although I am not a fan of the store bought ones, it was certainly a better/cheaper option than ordering something from work..On my high octane days I try to nosh ever 2-3hours..I have a few of my items bagged for tomorrow so I won't forget them..

I added Turbo Fire Upper 20 to the mix this evening..Time to catch up with you all, get some fuel and attempt to go to bed a little earlier tonight..I hope you all had a happy healthy day!!!

During/post workout- P90 recovery fuel

B- Almond Breeze shake with whey protein, 1/2 banana and blueberries

L- Tuna and Egg Salad with Provolone on 2 slices of whole wheat very thins.. Baked Multi grain and seeds tortilla chips..

1 1/2 gallons of water...Casein Shake (pre bedtime)

Progress as of today: 93 lbs lost so far, only 0 lbs to go!

The kids won over me and we watched Ninja Warrior last night too! I have missed 3 weeks of MasterChef and Hells Kitchen because I have been outvoted on the TV shows so I am stuck watching it OnDemand at my own time. I can so see you competing and winning at that! They have such upper body strength - it's amazing that they don't just tear their muscles using all their body weight like that! Have a great day!


Umpqua on 06/19/2012:
I'm so out of the loop on some of these shows, but American Ninja Warrior sounds fierce! I can't imagine what the Plyo class is like, baby steps for me ;)

I wanted to make you laugh. I thought about you Saturday night while we were at a party. All the guys were sitting down smoking cigars and drinking and I walked over to this group of 12 of my friends husbands and said "I guess I can't sit here because I am the wrong sex!" and they said of course you can - we are just solving the world's problems! Well, I wasn't interested in solving the world's problems but I sat next to my hubby and snuggled as I listened to them talk. One of them made a comment about the other one getting a beer belly and they started talking about switching from beer to whiskey to avoid bloating and then one of them said well that's where Brazilian Butt lift and Insanity come into play!! Well I almost spit out my drink, but I wanted to hear these guys have this conversation! Well 1/2 of them were familiar with the programs and raved about and the other half including my hubby were just stunned - like deer in the headlights that their friends actually did these workouts!! I have to say, the ones that knew it all had wives in great shape so I am sure they got them to do it with them. But these bunch of 50+ year old went from solving the wold's problems to Brazilian Butt lift without skipping a beat and talking about how much of a task master Shaun can be!! Do you remember when I wished you luck in your "pursuit" of Shaun? or was it Tony? Just shows you I knew NOTHING of these workouts!!! anyway, thought of you and had a great laugh!


Umpqua on 06/18/2012:
I actually looked at the Insanity schedule last night (JUST LOOKING haha) and I like that he goes back to the Fit Test so you can see your improvement over just 2 weeks. Great encouragement! ^^LOVE the above story, I so wish my hubs would get on board. He said maybe by the end of this week he'll do the body fat gadget....


thenewMLE on 06/18/2012:
RYC, creole tomatoes are a special variety grown in and around New Orleans and from our rich soil these sweet, deep red meaty tomatoes are born! The season is end of May until end of June and we eat them 3 times a day until the last one has been consumed! I love to make my own salad dressing for the same reasons. But they are simple - mostly balsamic vinegar with a splash of olive oil and then I get creative with the seasonings.


hollybelle on 06/18/2012:
Have a good Monday yourself! I know Rach will be fine. It's just a Mom's worry until she gets settled. She did text me this morning when she got to the airport and was going through security. She is super excited. I hope she has a great time.


hollybelle on 06/18/2012:
P.S. unlike many 20 year olds - she has been to LV about 4 times!

Yes, I do need info on what sport it is that you are watching!! LOL Although I did notice that we did get the NFL on ESPN a few months ago. Can't follow it, too many stops and starts, nothing is fun if you don't know the rules! Can follow the basketball though, trouble is I have so many other things to watch and soo many books waiting to be read:) If only I didn't need ten hours sleep each night!

Good Morning Ladies I just completed my Pure Cardio class feeling it! I love when Shaun says "I'm not trying to hurt you, I am just trying to help you get better" Getting a few more reps out with the pushup jacks each class and hopefully soon I will be able to do all of them in plank instead of going to my knees to do the modified ones.. Anyhoo I better get going so I can get this last shift of the week done..Have a happy healthy Saturday ladies

Before exercise, I didn't sleep well either. That's why I suggested it was because of my life's circumstances. My sleep patterns haven't changed with exercise. I was kind of hoping they would and they just aren't.

I don't think I ever told you about the AWB concert last weekend. They did play Pick up the Pieces and A Love of Your Own. They played Cut the Cake as the Encore. It was a good concert. Very small crowd - which was sad. It was mostly an OLDER crowd which was ok. There were several older ladies in the middle of the floor dancing their butts off (which was rather humorous, actually as they were definitely "old school" dancers-LOL) and the warm up band, Tee Dee Young from Nashville TN stayed in the audience for the AWB show and danced around with everyone. Lots of pictures were snapped and overall it was a good night.


legcramps on 06/15/2012:
LOL! I saw an add regarding Burger King's Bacon Sundae and almost threw up on the spot. Who would eat bacon with ice cream? I don't get it. That's disgusting, unhealthy, and makes me red with rage at the commercial world!


thenewMLE on 06/15/2012:
I can't do a push up - it's my wrists that are severely weakened. I admire anyone who can do all those fancy pushups! I FB messaged you the recipes that I used for inspiration and then the final draft. I was so excited I couldn't sleep last night! I can't wait to try it. Have a great weekend!

Good Morning Ladies Today's class was Cardio Recovery and it was very strange to see the softer calmer side of Shaun T..I don't like it one bit, I fancy getting yelled at..Hahahaha Just kidding, or am I?? It is was all about the glutes and hammies with some stretching..I am probably going to get in a power yoga class later for a nice long extended stretch..

In other news has anyone heard about the BACON sundae that Burger King added to their menu?? Super gross!  Feel free to discusss amongst yourselves here as to what you think.. Well I better get ready for my shift, chat with you all later, have a stellar day

Hey beauties! It was another hot, slow day at the beach but still had some genorous patrons along with one of my yearly guests in town that bought home made peanutbutter cookies.. She brought in a tin of them fresh out of the oven and I had a few while she was there and shared the rest with my greatful coworkers so they wouldn't go to waste at my house.. I got a Power Yoga Sweat Class in and now it is time to read some diaries, get some fuel and chillax!

I heard that sundae has 500+ calories and although I do like salty/sweet combos, I don't think I'd like Hot Fudge and Bacon at all (or the 500 cals)! I like chocolate covered pretzels and chili chocolate, etc.

My new gym has a monthly magazine they send out, and on this month's cover is Shaun T with a feature artice about him. He's pretty awesome, but you already know that!

I have heard about the BK bacon sundae. Extremely disgusting! I will not be having that.


sweetpea1977 on 06/14/2012:
lol at Umpqua's comment. Leandro is pretty good at burning out a muscle group. He likes to do one whole side with 4-5 moves for about 5 minutes before finally switching over to the other side. HURTS!!!

Hi V: As usual, you are on top of your game. I just finished doing yard work (that's about all of the exercise I plan on doing today). Just had a T-storm roll through. I'll try not to send it your way. Have a good one...

Glad you enjoyed homemade cookies and were thoughtful enough to share them! If you are like me, if I brought them home I would one more them until they ran out! I'm playing with the seafood stuffed salmon recipe right now. I'll send you my prelims tomorrow. Your dinner sounds delicious! RYC, Southern Oaks is not a "real" plantation but it was built to resemble one. I will post the link for you to see on FB. Have a great evening!


panda22 on 06/14/2012:
Lol yes it is challenging but I am giving it a shot! At least for a week or so lol. Glad you had a good day andddd not even gonna comment on the bacon sundae. It's really sad the "deluxe" menu items fast food joints come up with! I haven't had food from Burger King or Mcdonald's in years, minus an oatmeal or yogurt parfait here and there while on the road. After all the knowledge we have on what goes into that food it's just insane. Reminds me of an episode of Supernatural ( ahem:: commence drool over Jensen Ackles hahahaha). Anyway, not sure if you are familiar with that show but it's a series about 2 brothers who go around solving supernatural events. In one episode they go to a town where everyone is all spacey and out of it walking around like zombies and what do ya know the cause is some crazy addictive substance in a popular burger at a restaurant...makes them overweight, spaced out, and wanting more LOL symbolism much??? Yeah USA fast food in a nutshell!....Well watchin us some Heat/Thunder bball so gotta go ;). have a great evening! :)

Glad you had a great day! Yep, I know you'd prefer being yelled at to work hard! LOL.

The massage was the best I've had. She found every knot in my back and shoulders and worked them out (all from bike ride and spin bike I think). I'd love to have one every day!

OMG!! Bacon sundae??? When is it going to stop. Horrible stuff!! They have the county fair going on here right now and the things they make...ugh!! Deep fried butter! SERIOUSLY!!!

No wonder you're so nice and trim. Have a good day, V!

Hey! you are splashing sweat on me!!! LOL I admire your desire to sweat, I on the other hand hate it. I am sure if I didn't get so hot and uncomfortable I would exercise. I have always been this way. I am blaming my mother who said that ladies should never sweat!! That's my story and I am sticking to it. Except that when the second eldest boy goes to high school next year I have volunteered to walk the princess around to school and do my outside walk (about 45mins) which I haven't done since I had my first seizure three years ago! There is always hope V!! Lub you:)

Wow, that salmon sounds awesome. oK, I'll take the challenge and try to stuff the salmon! Weekend project....yes, she hasn't accepted the proposal yet because she didn't want to be in college, 21 and engaged. But she graduated 3 weeks ago and her birthday is Tuesday! They have been dating 3 1/2 years but have known each other most of their lives. His mom was her PE coach from age 2 to 13! He is 25 (about 4 years older than she) and she always knew him as Coach Bettye's older hot son! They reunited at a mutual close friend's funeral and then the age difference wasn't so awkward. The wedding isn't until spring of 2014 but I found a venue in our price range that offered a special to lock in 2012 pricing. So we took prospective MIL and went for a visit. It was nice and she really liked it. Hope you have a great evening! Enjoy the cheese on the beans!

Glad you liked the beans! I like spicy, very spicy at times. My daughters like shredded white cheddar and sour cream on them, but I eat them as is. Also, the jalapenos can change the heat too. Sometimes they are much hotter than others. I would love the wing recipe! Have a great day - it looks like sunshine for us!

Well, I hate to tell you, but after reading your post - I had to go on-line and see what was up on SVU! That was the cliffhangin' end of season finale - we will have to wait to find out what happens. I am so behind that I haven't seen the episodes without Elliott Stabler! They have a lot of 'splaining to do, Lucy!

Have an awesome day, V!

Nice! Way to go; I can see that you're liking the Insanity program :) I can't wait to see what you think about the Max workouts!


TheMother on 06/12/2012:
Hey V: Just checking in to see how you're doing. Sounds like you're in good spirits today. Have a good one. It is way TOO hot for me. Still adjusting to FL weather although in a couple of weeks, we'll be here two years already. Time flies!

So how are the Insanity Cardio classes? Are they dance-y schmancy or more like Tony? Looking for some good options to sub out for this Axe class...

(Building a stronger body/Insanity Hybrid)
Weight: 134.0

Good Morning Ladies I just finished up My Cardio Power and Resistance class.. Last week I didn't make the proper adjustments to my intake(upping the good carbs) so I researched Muscle and Fitness(June issue) for ideas..There was a helpful article by Dr. Douglas Kalman about tweaking intake so there is not a breakdown of muscle  tissue with the intense workouts.. Also a pretty neat article about Celebrity Bench Press showdown..It wasn't surprising that out of 6 celebs, Dwayne Johnson a.k.a. "The Rock" headed up the pack with 425 lbs, Will Smith 385, Vin Diesel 350, Hugh Jackman 315, Brad Pitt 280 and Nelly 270.. I have yet to peruse the entire mag but i am taking it with me when I get the laundry done.

I am trying out 2 new recipes this week, thenewMLE's famous "Creamy Black Beans"  and a recipe Sweetpea sent me "Polynesian Wings" The beans have been in the crock pot since last night and boy does it smell heavenly! Thanks Girls for sharing your recipes

Well I better hop in the shower and get my chores done, I hope you all have a stellar start to your week

Hey back from my day! I had a pretty late start to my chores due to procrastination but I did get all my clothes that needed to be clean done because I took my time to make sure I didn't miss anything..I also forgot my snack to take with me so i was forced to buy a protein bar to hold me over til I arrived back home(trying to stay away from store bought bars)..Hey BTW the "Dollar Tree" now sells Cliff, Odwalla and Power Bars..

I completed an Insane Abs class and now that the obliques are worked, my day is complete! Off to read some diaries and get some fuel!

During/post workout- P90X recovery fuel

B- Almond Breeze shake with whey protein, 1/2 banana and blueberries

S- Cliff bar

L- Turkey and Provolone with spicy mustard on 2 slices of whole wheat.... Deviled Egg Potato salad...1 peach

D- Polynesian Wings.. Creamy Black Beans with tapatio.. 2 Glasses of Menage a Trois(red)

1 1/2 gallons of water...Casein Shake(pre bedtime)

Progress as of today: 93 lbs lost so far, only 0 lbs to go!

Good deal on upping your carb intake, both recipes sound yummy. I didn't realize Will Smith was so muscular, he must be super tall because he doesn't look beefy. Makes me wish I was tall LOL. Have a good one!


LeakingLife on 06/11/2012:
Have a great week girlie!


sweetpea1977 on 06/11/2012:
yay, more carbs! :)

I cant wait to hear about the wings. I hope they are yummy as they sound!! The black beans sound delish too!


moogy on 06/11/2012:
I love chicken wings but I no work out I no get wings! I am going to send you a picture of The Rock working out from yesterday, I am his friend you know!! LOL seriously, he keeps me updated fairly frequently!!! Do not mock grasshopper:) Hope you had a good one V:) Lub you:)


MzLovely on 06/11/2012:
Yeah, with a lil salt amd lemon juice it is sooooo yummy, and spicy =)

I love reading that shake recipe - I'm soooo wanting to experiment with shakes! but my mom freaks at the sound of a blender...meaning, she hates me screwing up her kitchen (even if i bought the blender.) Lucky for me, I'll be MOVING OUT maybe in the fall or earlier/later depending when the next open apartment is available! I'm on the waiting list, at the top, thanks to connections.

anyways, when i move out, i'll be in shake heaven. I'll def be eating better, and I plan to have a MUCH easier time losing weight since only the food I buy will be in my house. I know it will be easier because even in COLLEGE, yes college!, it was easier when I had a room to myself...

blabbing on your page again!

anyways, i am not sure we have the same tastes as far as your other foods listed above the shake you mention. but, i must say, almond milk and all those REALLY LOW CALORIE drinks are amazing! so low calorie, i love to use almond milk as a filler instead of milk with cereal and add a plain greek yogurt on the side with cinnamon in it...so much more filling than cereal & milk alone.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/11/2012:
I tried a Vega protein powder from GNC, it's amazing! a slightly green color lol, but flavored vanilla chai. It has 6 grams of fiber, mostly protein, and good added to my wheat cereal this morning. (since i'm not making so many shakes while living at home...especially in the early morning...too noisy!)


nunnermack on 06/11/2012:
Will Smith does not surprise me but Hugh Jackman does. I've seen Will ripped at times at he does look good. And,jealous of Moogy if she is friends with The Rock. Hubba, hubba!! He is one fine looking man!!

Menage a Trois has pretty good wine, don't they?? I pick it up at Costco...I think $6.99 a bottle. Good price.


thenewmle on 06/11/2012:
How were your beans and wings? We had the black beans tonight too! Let me know about the wings. I may need to borrow the recipe from Sweetpea! Hope you had a great day!


hollybelle on 06/12/2012:
I missed L & O !!! Was it the final episode? What in the world happened? I must know! I usually keep up on the reruns at odd times on TNT or USA channels and am behind on the actual current episodes!
