"Every day do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow."Doug Firebaugh
My biceps have grown an entire inch since I started the LivFit workout! Yes, I may be bragging a little bit, but...... Yea me!!!!!!!!
Krazy Mommy Moment:
What is complete and total torture to you? For me.......sitting here at this very moment watching my children devour a bowl of homemade Carmel corn while I watch salivating! O.K., so I might have licked the spoon while I was stirring, but still! I really want some!!!!! So, instead I will write about eating healthy so I don't have a complete and total breakdown, take the popcorn and eat it all myself!!
So, I took on a new endeavor this past week, and I am helping to train a good friend of mine. I am so excited and having so much fun doing it! Besides, she is paying me in workout clothes!! AWESOME!!!! I decided that in my next life I am going to be a personal trainer and a nutritionist. Now that would be an awesome job! I sure hope I know enough to best help her. Thanks for trusting me girlfriend!
LivFit Day 75
OK, so last week there is no way I was going to measure and weigh myself. We had graduation, continuation, school parties and much much more! I worked out 3 times and ate like crap! The scale would not have been my friend. So, this week I am back on track and feeling great. This phase of LivFit (www.bodybuilding.com) has been so hard, but soooooo awesome! I am doing circuits of light weight/high rep exercises. It is kicking my butt, but feeling great! I am finally noticing some definition in my legs! For me that is a HUGE accomplishment! Here are my stats this week:
Weight: 117.5 lbs. (+0.5 lb)
Fat %: 17 % (-+0%)
Biceps:11 1/2 in (+-0)
Waist: 25 in (-1/2 in)
Butt: 35 1/2 in (-1/2 in) Ok, so that might be pushing it, but it shrunk a little!
Thigh: 18 4 in (-1/4 in)
This Week's Can't Live Without it Product:
These are totally awesome! They are my new obsession. I at them with salsa, yogurt dip, hummus, avocado, and anything else I can scoop up with them!!!! They are totally natural, organic, and clean! They are even a complete protein! Yeaaaaaa! The only place I have been able to find them however is King Supers! Get on the ball other grocery stores!
I found this recipe on www.recipe.com and thought it looked so yummy! It wasn't quite clean however, so I made my own little tweaks, and it tastes great!!!!!! It's cold and perfect for a hot summer day! Enjoy!
