Just kidding! ha! And yes… What you see on my blog is what you get… stupid humor and all! Although I do hold back on my lame jokes quite a bit so that you guys will maybe like me a little bit more and not think I’m a weirdo! ;)
I really do have some awesome great news though! Are you guys ready for this?! Last year I applied to be a #FitFluential Ambassador and a couple weeks ago I got the official “you’re accepted” email. I didn’t want to share though until today when I got the official “you’re official” email! So it’s official… I’m now the newest FitFluential Ambassador!! I’m super excited to be a part of yet another great community!!
Are you a #FFAmbassador?
So, my day today was pretty much amazing and not really for any specific reason… other than I actually got enough sleep for once last night!
**Confession** I’ve been AWFUL at going to bed at a decent time!! Most nights I won’t go to sleep til after midnight or 1am! I can blame it on not getting off work til 11pm at my second job, but it’s totally my fault…
Ok, back to my awesome day… I only went to work (educational assistant) for half a day and got off at noon to go to a required training. Well that training wasn’t supposed to end til 4pm which is when I normally get off work anyways… BUT I got done at 2!!! How awesome right?! That meant that I got to the gym 2 hours earlier and wasn’t exhausted (in part because I got enough sleep) and got home 2 hours earlier and was able to make dinner when the sun was still shining!
I know some of you are like “girl, why don’t you go to the gym BEFORE work and then you’d be home at 4 every Monday!” lol… well, you may have missed the one few billion posts where I mention I’m a cheapskate frugal, have a bajillion jobs, and don’t even have enough money to fly across the US to Cali this summer which is why I don’t have a gym membership and workout at my college alma mater for FREE… which means my workout window is pretty small as the gym is only open from 10-8. Such is life and you gotta make the most of what you’ve got, so I’m not complaining! :)
This is the view from where I worked out today… Not too shabby right?!
I switched up my workout a little bit… I did a circuit type of workout today…
- Walking Warmup 7min --> .42mi
- Squats (12)(14)(16); Lunges (10ea leg); Wall Sit (30sec); Pushups (10 manly ones) ;) X 3 repeats
- 30 Day Fast Start with Jackie Warner [Arms only, used 5lbs] (I have it memorized so no need for the DVD ha!)
- Side Lunges (10ea leg); Plank (45sec)(50sec)(1:00); Crunches (20); Bicycle Crunches (16)(18)(20) X 3 repeats
- Run 20:27min --> 2 miles!!! Pretty pumped cuz I’m consistently running 2 miles without any knee pain!!
- Walking Cooldown 8min --> .46mi
- Stretch for 20 minutes
Wall Sits!!! (and Nuun Energy!! Don’t forget to enter my giveaway !)
No scientifically proven reason why I did any of the things I did in my workout… just did it cuz it sounded fun! ;) And remember, if you duplicate this workout for yourself cuz it sounds fun, I’m not a doctor or trainer or coach, etc… nor do I play one on tv! It’s just a workout I came up with on my own and doesn’t guarantee you any kind of results except for maybe sore muscles ;)
I’ll leave you a picture of my dinner…
Chicken Quesadilla, Rice, Mixed Veggies, Salad, and Water
And just a reminder to enter my giveaways going on right now!! They both end 3/31 at 11:59pm!! :) (click the pic to go to the giveaway)
