Down A Pound!


Like most people I am not a huge fan of the scale but I decided to break down and get my butt on the scale and to my surprise I have lost a pound in a week…WOOT WOOT!!! It is the little things in life that really count. Sam and I have been working out together since the beginning on January and while I am down 8lbs he has lost 22lb! WOW! I always knew that men lost weight quicker (and easier) than women but it doesn’t make it any less frustrating.

Yesterday I had the most amazing salad. It had fresh pineapples, oranges, cucumbers, red peppers among all the other “normal” salad fixings. It was an explosion of flavor in my mouth….yum!!!


Then I made this awesome egg scramble for dinner, it consisted of 3 eggs, red onion, asparagus and brocoli with a hint of 1/3 less fat cream cheese. It was awesome and super filling!

Loosing 8lbs so far is awesome but I am also feeling so much better about the way my body looks and how I feel in clothes. It is truly amazing what exercise and healthy food can do for your body. I’ve also noticed that my skin looks healthier, I think that has something to do with all the water I’ve been drinking!

I am working out with my trainer tomorrow so I will definitely be sure to write down my exercises so I can share them with you.

Time to do the dishes and get ready for bed! I’m so glad tomorrow is Hump Day!!

Good Night Everyone 🙂


Gym on a Saturday?! You bet!


I can’t believe it but I actually went to the gym on a Saturday! I had scheduled a workout with my wonderful trainer, Gina, so I was definitely being held accountable! Before I tell you all a little about my awesome workout I’d like to tell you a little bit about the gym I belong to. Two years ago I joined ACT by Deese a local gym owned by Prince and Gina Deese. I started going and immediately fell in love with not only the gym but the staff as well. ACT by Deese is a place where people of all ages, races, shapes and sizes feel comfortable. I have had several gym memberships in the past and I always felt uncomfortable, I am not saying there is anything wrong with the larger gyms but they just aren’t for me.

Attitude, Compisition, Training

Yesterday I started with a quick warm up on the ARC trainer then Gina had me focus on abs. On Thursday I did a complete body workout which just about killed me! One of my favorite ab moves had to be The Superman!

I really need to start logging the different types of exercises I do so I can share them with you all. I can remember how to perform the move but I can never remember what they are called. I will work on that this week!

This has to be my LEAST favorite ab move!I am paying for it today…my abs are super sore, but in a good way!:I can’t believe that it is already dinner time on Sunday! Why do the weekends have to go by so quickly?
