Happy Birthday to my Angel!

Happy Birthday to my Angel!

My little snow baby turns 12 today!  She is a burst of sunshine in our family!  It has VERY much been a GIRL weekend.  Sleep overs with not much sleep, pedicures, getting ears pierced, and TONS of Taylor Swift!!

This song was the one everyone loved, danced, and sang to all night.  It’s number 4 on YouTube right now.  Start the video at 2:03!

My cute daughter wants me to have my TREAT day today for her birthday!  She likes it when I wear jammies, eat treats, and watch Good Luck Charlie with her.  That’s what we’ll be doing tonight!!

Tomorrow…I’m getting serious with my eating habits.  I was o.k. last week, but I could have been better.  I found a great 1 week green smoothie challenge I’m going to try!!  It’s not even CRAZY!!  It’s 4 meals a day: 2 smoothies, a salad, and a soup.  You can munch on as many raw vegetables as you’d like with as much as 1 cup of homemade hummus.  Here it is:  http://vedgedout.com/2013/01/04/its-go-time-whos-with-me/

She claims you can lose 5-10 lbs. in a week.  I think it will give me a kick start to eating healthy and motivate me to keep my exercise habits up!!  The freezing, dark mornings have NOT helped my running schedule!  So…who wants to join me?  I think it will help my stress level too.  I’ve been in a munchie mood lately and I think it’s the anxiety over the new house remodel and moving.  If I know what I’m eating all day, I don’t have to think about that!  I’ll keep you posted throughout the week.

Now, if anyone knows where I can find 3 tickets to the sold out Taylor Swift concert in Salt Lake City, let me know!!!  I was a little bugged when I heard about her sold out concert and I didn’t even KNOW the tickets went on sale.  I’ll be trying to win some through the country stations!!  Here is a picture of my birthday girl and me at Taylor’s concert in 2011.

Happy MONDAY!!  Have a great week and beat the winter blues!!

Get started…again!

Hello again!  I have a couple new challenges to share today and I found a GREAT blog that has everything rolled up into one.  By far, this has been the BEST blog I’ve seen on normal people getting fit and losing weight.  I will be referring to this blog for nutrition, motivation, and exercises for me and others.  Here is a page I especially loved called HOW TO GET STARTED WITH CLEAN EATING.  It’s encouraging to see people’s success with weight loss and fitness AND to see them sticking to it!  I’ll be starting to train my first real client this week.  So excited!!

I have had a few health concerns this weekend that have left me a little down.  Obstacles are always there.  After I get them taken care of I’m going to stick to my workout routine.  I’ll get back on my marathon training schedule and run 4 x a week and as far as weight lifting goes, I’m going to attend my WOD of the day classes, GRIT, and my own workout class at the track.  That will be it for now.  I love Jamie Eason workouts and lifting hard every day, but it’s difficult to train for a marathon AND be hard core buff girl.  It’s running season anyway!

Let's go for a run!

Let’s go for a run!

I’m BACK!  I wrote the first part of this post and then got in a whirlwind of driving all over the world and I’m finally back to finishing this.  My crazy life has given me…shingles.  That sounds so gross and oldish doesn’t it?  I don’t need to go into details, but it’s related to stress and a low immune system.  My husband would say I got it from working out too much (:  I think it came on because of the awful sickness I had a month ago.  Anyway, I’ll get better!  My binge over the weekend was so-s0.  I really don’t need crap in my body so I’m starting ANEW with 2 plans.  I’m going to do the 7 day SMOOTHIE diet that I tried 6 months ago.  I’m thinking it will help cleanse my sicky body!  Then, I’m going to follow Les Mills 21 day nutrition challenge.  Download it HERE.

Sooooo, enjoy these 3 GREAT websites to get motivated.
