I work out

I started the Insanity workout and it went really well the first week. In fact I lost 5 pounds and was able to fit into my favorite red pants. Then, I don’t know what happened. Well, I actually do..I got lazy. I skipped the whole second week. I want to blame it on switching medications for my leg, but I am just making excuses. So, even though today is Sunday and the Insanity schedule says that’s a day of rest, I went ahead and did one of the workouts just so I can get back on track and back into the habit. Ill be doing the second week workout this week even though I technically would be on my 3rd week if I stuck to it. *sigh*

They say it takes 20 days to form a habit, so gotta keep going.

I am noticing though, the clothes I am working out in are weighing me down and make it hard to do quick movements. Also my running shoes have just about had it and have seen their better days. So, I started looking online for workout gear. I know its not about being cute when working out, because I have no one to impress when I am working out in my studio. But, I do want to be comfortable.

I know I usually go to Forever 21 to get workout basics like shorts and tank tops. They usually have cute and affordable workout gear.

When it comes to my shoes, I am a Nike girl. I always have been. They are just comfortable and they never let me down. I have ran with them in the military, from Afghanistan, Kuwait, Iraq and pretty much everywhere I have lived. I usually stick to black because they’re easier to clean ( although the pair I have now are white and covered in glitter from working at Xotic Eyes. )

Here are some other cool workout accessories I found online.

The one above I would def use, but would like it in an elliptical form. hahaha

How is your workout coming along if you had that down as a resolution? What is the one thing you Have to have to workout?

Thanks for stopping by and see you in the next post!


Devote yourself to an idea. Go make it happen. Struggle on it. Overcome your fears. Smile. Don’t you forget: this is your dream.

Insanity Again

A few months back, well, I cant remember when, I got a copy of the INSANITY workout from my mom when she got back from Korea and I wanted to try it out since I heard so much success with it. I kept up with it for about a week, then lost interest. I am done making excuses! The discs have been sitting on my shelf so I dusted them off, put my work out clothes on and started the first cd.



I didn’t have the workout schedule so I did find it online so that I could keep better track of my work outs and I am not just doing random workouts. (if you need it too, click the link highlighted in pink! )


I just did the first workout and I had to go to my own pace..but I kept up with it. I cant overwork myself straight out, gotta build up to it. I have been watching my diet as well, which is hard because I am a junk food addict!

I found a menu from a fellow blogger that I want to try out. I will eventually make my own

6-10-12 meal plan

I will definitely make some adjustments!  This inspires me to make my own menu.


This is a good idea to pack up my lunches and fruit snacks.

Ill post my progress as I go- maybe this will inspire you to do the same!




See ya soon in the next post!
