day 135 - stronger every day

     Another great day in the books.  I worked out by 12:30 which was just perfect.  I ate later then I usually do in the morning but it worked out just fine.

day 134 - Yay smoothie!

     I got a nice early start to my day!  What I mean by that is that I didn't wait until it was late to work out!

Charcoal for perspective

     Today N and I had a BBQ in Prospect Park and it was great.

     Managed to get my work out in today before late.  
I was done around 5:30pm which was freaking awesome.  I had way more energy then I usually do at  10pm.

rest day saturday style

     Well, I took a rest day.  A full fledged do nothing rest day.  N and I did brunch today at one of our favorite spots, Building on Bond, and took DVW with us.  We LOVE this place.  The prices are super reasonable, the food is fantastic and the atmosphere is unmatched.  

     The rest of our day was very relaxed.  I bought 2 pairs of slacks and a vest at Salvation Army for less then $15.  One of those pairs of slacks is a size 14!  The other is a 16.  The 16s fit better but the 14s are still fine.  Since my black pair of slacks no longer fit (YAYYY!) I needed to get something nice for the next assignment I may get sent on for work.  Ahhh, the glamorus life of a temp.

     N and I spent some time at The Brooklyn Strategist and N play tested the game he created.  He played one game with one of the guys that work there and 2 games with one of the kids that was just hanging around.  It was really awesome and he got some great feed back.  It's really looking like we are moving closer to getting the game published. We just need to have it copyrighted, get and intelectual properties lawyer, comission the artwork, get the game published and sell it.  Seems easy enough.  ;) 

     When I knew that they were close to done I ran across the street to get myself a celebratory (4 months working out) manicure.  May I introduce you to Essie's "Shorty Pants:"

                                Super fun and perfect for summer.

      I didn't follow my meal plan so well today but I am ok with it.  I feel good and am excited for weigh in day tomorrow, though my weigh in day during TOM can sometimes be a pain with added weight.  Either way, I'm excited.  

     Yay weekend!!


July Measurements

     Here I am again WAYYY to late in the evening just rushing to get a post in.  Today is my 4 month anniversary and measurements day and I hope you will take a quick second to check out my progress since I've started.

121 and counting

     Fifth day of Insanity.  That Pure Cardio workout can just bite me.  It was hard to get though but I did make it.

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

120 days in

     Another good day in the books.  I ate really well.  Followed my meal plan, even improvised dinner with the right amount of calories.

Insanity - Day 3

     F*CK YEA!!  That's what I shouted as I was laying face down on the ground today after my Insanity work out.  

Monday, July 9, 2012

1st day w/ meal plan

     Woo!  Second day of Insanity in the bag!  Today was the Plyometric Cardio Circuit.  As I am sure they will all be, this was nuts.  The craziest fact about the whole thing?

brief thoughts on weight

     Today was a good day.  I did some of the Biggest Loser Weight Loss Yoga video as my work out for the day.  

ready for the weekend

     My plan for the weekend is to get myself set up to follow the basic aspects of the Insanity meal plan for this coming week.  After all calculations are said and done it is recommended that I take in 1950 calories a day.

Back to the beginning

I went ahead and started the 30 Day Shred again. I am doing way less modified versions of stuff but there are some things I still struggle with. Namely my wrist. I wasn't able to do push ups and even trying to modify them into the standing version was kind of painful.

I am currently in a NOT doing Insanity mood. It waxes and wains.

If nothing else, by Sunday I am going to have my next month's plan taken care of. I'm not a fan of living in limbo.

Dinner tonight with the cousins was great! We had really yummy food and it was great too catch up with them. The baby is getting so big! He's just over a year old now and the cutest thing you have ever seen. For tonight I leave you with his adorableness.

maybe Insanity, maybe not

     Another day in the books.  Since I haven't totally made my mind up yet about what is next i went back to an old fave, the Cardio 1 workout from Biggest Loser.  It's a good solid half hour that really works up a sweat.

Tuesday, July 3, 2012


     Today I haven't worked out.  I don't really know how I feel about it yet.

30 Day Shred Complete!!

     I CANNOT BELIEVE IT!!!  I did the 30 Day Shred all the way through.

Weigh in - Day 110

179.4 lbs.
-0.4 lbs from last week
-24.9 lbs total loss

     It's a small loss but down is down!  I like down!  Can you believe it's July already?!  


     Another late post.  N and I had a packed day today.  Ran some errands, bought some stuff and spent some time at The Brooklyn Strategist.  We ended up becoming members, now we can go when ever we like, play any game and stay as long as we like.

     Today was my last work out before weigh in.  I am hoping to see a standard loss but if not I'm good.  I'm really starting to see and feel my progress.  It's awesome.  

     Ok, bed time for me.
