day 13 :)

Well bad news, I don't have any good play lists from the last 5 days- but no worries I will have some musical ideas to share.

My last post was Friday's run- so picking up from there I went to a pilates class at the Y on Saturday as well as yoga at the Y on Sunday. Both classes had no music because the system at the Y is broken, TRAGEDY for one who is motivated by music. However, the classes are excellent and offer a good change in schedule following intense boot camps. I plan to keep them in my weekly routine.

I've been consistent still w/ boot camp this week (and month for that matter) getting there Monday afternoon (I pretty much hate afternoon bc's, too hot and I'm definitely tired-rough!), Tuesday and Wednesday morning. The boys there like the slow jam mix, which is not my fav and I complain to Chris everyday. I know he loves it. Haha :)

Feeling really good in my 13th day of my monthly "cleanse" - working out everyday and no alcohol. Update on Lent still no shots or starbucks...but caved into using my debit card, over 30 days w/ out it was ENOUGH.

Okay so tunes- I am on a Michael Jackson kick, lately I am finding the music super motivating and of course fun. It's almost like I rediscovered it- so you should too! Also check out Mika for really silly, fun music for when you just need a pick me up.

Hope everyone is having a great week and stay motivated :)

oh let's just add another challenge into the mix...

Holler and HAPPY FRIDAY!

I had a glowing report after Tuesday's boot camp about the music choices...but not so much the next two days. Typical boy (great one day then not so much the next), lol sorry Chris!!! Most of the blame lies in the inconsistent ways of Pandora. BUT that does not mean the work outs weren't killer. Wednesday being arm intensive, it feels like some one punch both of my arms and there is internal bruising... bad ass arms are developing!!! Yesterday I opted to sleep in and catch the 5:30pm boot camp session. I am SO much more and AM session person- it's just by 5:30pm my energy is down and it feels like it is a million degrees in the gym. However, the work out was perfect. 6 different exercises and a dice. Enough said:)

On day 8 of no drinking and still good to go. Funny how in the last 8 days I've been to Dos Gatos 4 times, lol. And on the Lent front- still no starbucks, no debit card and of course now, no shots.

This weekends work out agenda: run tonight, pilates in the morning and yoga on Sunday. Also getting my first massage EVER tomorrow- so stoked.

I'm going to add another music element to this blog for the next 30 days- on Facebook there is a page called the 30 Day Song Challenge and each day represents a different type of song. So here we go, Day 1- your favorite song...

day 01 - your favorite song
I'm going to go w/ my favorite song RIGHT NOW (bc we'd get no where if I really tried to narrow down to favorite song ever)...

Cee Lo Green- What Part Of Forever

Stay motivated!

the april challenge

Woo! Happy April! So pretty much smack in the middle of Lent and still going strong w/ my "sacrifices": starbucks, shots and my debit card. Okay starbucks because I spend WAY too much money there, shots because they never lead to good things and make you feel like crap and my debit card because I lost it on March 5th and acutally JUST TODAY got my new one. It's been a great money saver, so I might as well keep on w/ cash and checks :)

Okay so lets up the challenge for the month of April, well at least until the 29th (MIAMI time!). So here's the plan no drinking, consistent boot camp NOT missing any M-Th, add yoga at least once a week and keep on running. Easy? Well no drinking will absolutely help ;) Starting the month off w/ a 5k was definitely motivating especially since I BEAT my personal record!!!

My jeans are a bit tight, sooooo that's got me motivated, but doing a mind/body cleanse isn't such a bad idea for me right now.

Here are a few playlists I have to share from my Sat-Mon workouts. I did a GREAT yoga class at the Y on Sunday, so no playlist from that- just imagine the most calm/peaceful music you can think of, and that was it.
