hyper- which means i worked out this morning :)

Yikes, slacker alert AGAIN! Thanks for some followers that keep me on my toes...

This morning was an extra early morning- on the treadmill by 6:15 instead of the normal 6:45- got there in the dark and left in the dark, woo! Pending weather I may do a bridge run this afternoon w/ some theatre girls, if not yoga while watching Biggest Looser :)

On the radio this morning the gym was listed as one of the top 10 worst places to flirt- excuse me? Not that at 6am I am on my A game for flirting, but I would think the gym after 5 is bumping w/ flirty mcflirtness- no?

what the hell

So maybe I enjoy a "tune of the moment" well, all the time... so the latest discovery- What the Hell from none other than spicy Avril Lavigne. Okay so maybe in college I was a big fan of this young rocker/skat8r/complicated chick and maybeeee I still am.

Yes yes, I did climb in a tree to watch her at the red, hot and boom show at the outdoor Altamonte pavilion and was PROMPLTY removed by a police officer, details, details...

What the Hell is just a super fun dance around your room and sing in the mirror (yes that happened this morning) jam.

It also started off my 2.3 mile run/jog... went for 30 min and then stretched for 10.

What the Hell- Avril Lavigne
Church- T-Pain
Simple Little Melody- Black Eyed Peas
Always Be My Baby- Mariah Carey
Countdown (Sick For The Big Sun)- Phoenix
Burden- Mute Math
Rest- The Temper Trap
Raise Your Glass- P!nk

excuses excuses

The last seven days have been filled with excuses in more than one way- it's too cold to work out in the morning, no time to cook so I'll eat like crap and my fav "oh i'll just text him one more time" maybe he didn't get it? LOL. EXCUSES. My life is a jumble and the last seven days have been just that- workshops, meetings, airport runs, advertising award judging, engagements, parties, work, shows, dinners and on and on and on. Routine is necessary and hard to always stick to.

So tomorrow morning it is back in the routine w/ an AM workout and PM stretch session.

Tomorrow, you'll get some tunes outta me... song for right now... Eclipse, Robyn.

internet interval clocks are wonderful!

Well this little gem, http://www.speedbagforum.com/timer.html, was a HUGE help tonight w/ yoga moves by Jillian (see last night's blog). I won't lie, it took some remedial math and a few tries to figure it out- but I did and boy did it help keep me on track. (what round am I on!? no more.)

Okay so I did put some tunes on... before starting I added some more music to my "sleep", now named "sleep/yogaish" play list, and well... it's a tad bit depressing. I will work on this for next time ;)

Lasso- A Band Perry

YIKES! See what I mean, hahaha. I swear they are all great songs, I just need to find some more not focused around lost love or lives for that matter!


hmmm that stair machine...

In an effort to start mixing up my cardio I tried the stair machine today, that lasted 5 minutes- ha! That machine has always been a mystery to me- so clearly I need to consult a trainer to teach me its ways...

I hope everyone is doing well with their New Year workout plans and stay inspired!

double dose of jillian

Seriously SELF Magazine's Jan 2011 issue is my new best friend and I'm pretending that means Jillian Michaels is my BFF bc she's on the cover.

So instead of tunes I did 5, or 6 I lost count, rounds of the yoga inspired moves by Jillian below WHILE watching Biggest Loser. Get it? Double dose of Jillian...

body makeover moves....

Perfect way to end a rather frustrating day.


discovered diddy dirty music...

Up at 6:30am and running by 6:45am, wooo day 2 success! It really is incredible how AM workouts put me in such a good mood. It was my routine from Oct 2009-2010 and then I just sorta fell off the map and lost myself a bit. Thankfully I found me, whew. 

It's not the same working out alone as opposed to being w/ my bootcamp buds- but I am enjoying the Y and the gym experience again.

This month's edition of SELF Magazine is super motivational, ya gotta love Jillian Michaels. I'll be trying out her stretch routine tonight and will post that playlist as well:)
