Debating on if I should do a run today or go to the gym today...Or should I just take it easy since I'm so sore from the 100 workout I did the other day. Im thinking about just being lazy. I need to go to Academy and get new workout clothes soon. It's a necessity.

Anywho i saw Alyssa's recipe and I had to go to the store immediately to buy the stuff myself. The only thing I did differently was actually by the skinny girl margarita bottle. I cant wait to try it later on today. I will definitely post an update on what I think. But thanks Alyssa for the idea.
I did the unthinkable today. Well at least the unthinkable to me...Have you ever heard of the 100 workout? Neither did I until yesterday. Today I decided to give it a try. Here's what the workout looks like.
- 100 Jumping Jacks
- 90 Crunches
- 80 Squats
- 70 Leg Lifts (the hardest part to me)
- 60 Jumping Jacks
- 50 Crunches
- 40 Squats
- 30 Leg Lifts (Again, the hardest part)
- 20 Jumping Jacks
- 10 minutes of jogging
- 5 minutes of foam rolling *added in myself
- 1 minute plank *added in myself
I challenge you to try this workout and let me know what you think of it and how you did. I think next time I will use a timer and try to get faster every time...

It is one of my favorite things to make

todays workout was foam rolling, stretching, zumba at golds gym, and sauna for 10 minutes.
So I wanted to take a picture of my yummy ice cream from baskin robbins. I had a small scoop of mississippi mud, but in this texas heat I had no chance of getting a good picture bc it melted before I even took the first bite. How lovely.
I was actually supposed to go to tcby for some semi~healthy ice cream...but that obviously didnt work out...
We decided to come wash and wax drews car so I thought I could get a little workout in...but he is hogging the foaming brush so I decided to blog...
Dinner tonight is al pastor and rice. The al pastor has been in the crock pot since 11 it is now 4. Should be delicious when we get home

- stretching..(yes, it is a form of exercising)
- 20 minutes on treadmill and 21%-30% incline
- Leg Press --- reps of 130, 135, 140, 145, and 150 pounds :] *I still got it
- Arms --- slanted bench press * reps of 40, 45, and 50 pounds
- Planks ---60 second plank
- Side Planks --- Both sides for 30 seconds each
- More Stretching with this awesome machine they have at the gym
- 10 minutes of Sauna
For dinner I made some awesome chicken fajitas with orange bell peppers and red onions cooked in. On top we had cheese, cilantro and fresh onion on fresh tortillas with a side of rice. It was yummy but I was full after the 3rd bite. Sometimes I dont know when to stop and I've decided it's because I put 2 hours into cooking a meal to only eat 3 bites? Well that can change...it reallycan. It could just mean more leftovers, and more awesomeness for the next day, or next couple of days.
Drew's skinny ass finished all two of his tacos and his enormous pile of rice and the first thing he said is "dessert?". What in the hell....I wish I could be like that. I don't really like to keep desserts in the house so I had to scrounge around to find him something. He ended up with 2 almond hershey kisses, fruit gummies, Nature's Valley Dark Chocolate and Granola, and a choclate milk bite bar. He ate everything. I honestly believe that as I'm writing this he is already in bed laying down. How can he do this and stay so skinny. I wish I had the metabolism of a 9 year old. But I understand that I dont that's why I have to workout...because I like to eat, but it doesnt just melt away like it does for Drew.
Well I'm gonna go check on him and make sure he doesn't leave me up by myself. Wish me luck

Short Term GoalsGoal 1: Workout a minimum of 4 times a week
Goal 2: At least 8 glasses of water
Goal 3: Eat more fruits and veggies
Long Term GoalsGoal 1: Run my Muddy Outlaw Dash in under 29 minutes. -September 15th
Goal 2: Be able to comfortably fit in shorts
Goal 3: One Day: Run a half marathon
The hardest part about running is getting started. To meet my goals I will take my clothes with me to work. Workout at work when I have hour lunches and when I don't I will go straight to the gym afterwork. On Tuesdays I will attend Zumba classes at 4:45. On Saturdays I will go to crossfit, and Sundays Zumba again. The other days need to be some sort of cardio. I can do this. I have to remember it's all mental. Especially this quitting cigarettes thing. It's the biggest thing holding me back because I dont like to run when I smoke because I cant breath correctly. If I can just quit and be mentally strong, then I can do it.
