OGB week 2

Last week was the 1st week of Operation get buff and it was tough but I made it through the week. On to the 2nd week and my workouts will consist of Functional Training Mon, Wed and Fri then jogging/walking 3 miles on Tues and Thurs.

This weeks functional training class consists of:

12 squats
12 rows
12 bicep curls
REPEAT 3 times

12 backward lunges
12 lateral raises
12 shoulder presses
REPEAT 3 times

12 dead lifts
12 chest presses
12 triceps extensions
REPEAT 3 times

12 Burpies
12 Plank jumps
12 side to side jumps
REPEAT 6 times

What a killer workout. Only 30 second breaks between each set. It took about 40 minutes to complete this workout. If you want to try this at home the only thing you need is dumb bells. I used 8lbs cause I have no upper body strength. I'll keep ya'll updated on my progress of Operation get Buff ;)

The Ellen Show!

My sister over at Tickled Pink recently requested tickets to The Ellen Show since she will be filming in our home state Florida. While sister was at work once day a strange number called so she decided to pick up. It was The Ellen Show calling her to offer her the 3 tickets she requested. Of course she took them cause she is a HUGE fan of Ellen and she has decided to take me and my mom with her!! We are all so freaking excited about it and cant wait to get details. All I know is it will be on April 3rd. The Ellen Show is sending my sister a information packet soon and I cant wait to get details.

Sister is hoping Taylor Swift is one of the guest and Im hoping its David Beckham :)

I will keep you guys posted!

Operation get Buff :)

I am finally at a weight I am happy with and now its time for me to tone this flabby body. I dont care to have a six pack (if I get a six pack I wont complain) I just want a flat stomach, a hard non cellulite butt, non jiggly thighs, and nice arms. Operation get Buff started yesterday with a 30 minute functional training class and the 1.5 miles on the EFX machine. Today consisted of 2.5 miles of the EFX since I am super super sore.

I am eating healthy meals but no so strict that I will never stick with it. Hubs and I also have a side deal. I have always wanted to make working out part of my everyday life but I have yet to be successful. Well I found this bathing suit I wanted and its expensive so he told me that if I hit the gym on an average of 4 days a week for the next 2 month he will buy it for me. Well I want this suit pretty bad so Im gonna make it happen. Here is a pic of the 2 I want...I havent decided which one I want cause I like both equally.

Found here

Let me know what you think about the bathing suits.

1.5lb chicken or shrimp
box whole wheat penne pasta
3 clover garlic (chopped)
small onion (chopped)
packet of herb and garlic mix
2 tbsp pesto
2 cups of fresh spinach
2 tbsp EVOO
Cajun seasoning
chili powder

1. In a large saute pan cook EVOO, onion, and garlic on med high heat for about a minute. While its cooking add a generous amount of cajun seasoning, chili powder, garlic salt and pepper. Add chicken or shrimp to the saute pan and cook until cooked all the way. Use all your seasonings to season the chicken for more flavor. I season heavy so season it how you would normally season your food. After chicken is cooked all the way mix spinach in saute pan and mix together.
2. Mean while boil pasta and make herb and garlic mix as directed. Once the sauce is finished add pesto to sauce and then mix sauce, pasta and chicken mix together. Stir until the pasta is coated in sauce.
3. Cut up tomato and sprinkle some on top of each serving.

TBR challenge book 1

I have finally finished my 1st book!! "The Queen of Babble Gets Hitched" What a great book in fact a great series. I am very sad that I finished this series cause it was such a light hearted funny read. There were times I felt happy for Lizzie, embarrassed for her, sad and so many different emotions. I highly recommend The Queen of Babble Series. Thanks to my sister at Tickled Pink (btw check her blog out) for suggesting the series to me. I read the 1st book within 24 hours, the 2nd with in a few day and the 3rd in 3 weeks (cause of school). If you have read these books let me know what you think!

The next book Im going to read is "Water for Elephants" by Sarah Guren. I recently seen previews for the movie to come out sometime in March so I want to make sure I read it before then. If I watch the movie I wont go back and read the book. The characters in my head are way better than the ones in the movie. My sister-in-law Brittney suggested this book.
