Thursday Thoughts

Good morning! Happy almost Friday =)

One of the blogs I frequently read is My Food ‘n’ Fitness Diaries. Ashley links up with Amanda from Running with Spoons to do a thing out loud/Thursday thoughts post and I thought Id give it a go!

  • I cannot get enough of my baby. I know all moms say this but she is the cutest, smartest, most fun baby!!! I can’t believe she is almost 7 months old. Time is flying! IMG_0253 IMG_0236 IMG_0086 IMG_0129
  • I am trying to lose a few pounds and give up Diet Coke/caffeine. Diet Coke and donuts are all I can think about right now!!! Its only day 2, so I know it will pass, but the mind is a funny thing.
  • I really love Drake and Niki Minaj right now. Every morning on my way to work Truffle Butter comes on the radio, its the perfect way for me to wake up at jam (at 5:30am).
  • I am working late today for an awards dinner, which is nice because I got to sleep in today, but sucks because my baby will be in bed when I get home. Already looking forward to tomorrow morning when she wakes up!!IMG_3130
  • I am going to begin the process on becoming a certified NASM personal trainer! Im super excited to learn more and share with you guys. Nasm-Essentials-of-Personal-Fitness-Training-Clark-Micheal-9781608312818Thank you Amanda for hosting Thinking Out Loud today!}


Thanks for stopping by! Ill be back later to chat some more =)

Body Like Jello

Hey guys!

If there are more errors than normal thats because my body is jello. Seriously. I am on day 3 of the Daily Burn’s Black Fire program and it is no joke. I am usually not a fan of workout videos but this is only about 30min per workout and is hard!!! Love it! Today started with Black Fire’s ABC 1 taught by Anja Garcia. I love her and Bob Harper! They are great trainers and really motivate you throughout the workout. The hardest move today was jumping back and forth over our mat while slapping the top of your knees…for 5 rounds. Holy crap.

After my venti skinny decaf mocha and diet coke, I made an egg white scramble with 3/4c egg whites, 1/4c Trader Joes lite mozzarella cheese, and 1/4 of an avocado with a 100 calorie pack of Coca Roasted almonds –my favorite!

Olivia has been a little crabby today, so it was easiest for me to go through the drive-thru while she napped. Then I consoled her when she woke up extremely upset.

Hope you all have a great night! See ya tomorrow =)

I’ve Got My Toes In The Water…

Hi everyone! I hope you had a great weekend, and if your like me, I hope you had a great Monday holiday!

My day started out with another Daily Burn workout (Cardio Sports Drill), and an upper body workout (I will be posting it Friday!!). I then quickly showered and Olivia and I met my sister in Los Gatos to head for Santa Cruz! It was over 70 degrees at the beach…absolutely amazing! It was Olivia’s first time and she loved it. I had so much fun! Having a baby makes everything that much better!
DSCF0923DSCF0929DSCF0938We spent most of the afternoon at the beach and then headed home. I had about 5 loads of laundry waiting for me…I swear its never ending! I also started half of my grocery shopping with a trip to target. How does my list of 8 things turn into this!?! Oh…Target, you always win.  I usually do my grocery shopping on Sundays but since I have Tuesday off (in lieu of the Monday holiday) I am taking it easy and will finish up my shopping today. TargetWell thats it for today. I had a pretty low-key weekend and Monday. I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday! See ya tomorrow with a peak into a day of my life =)
