"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 ( 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! 

Clean Recipe:

I found this recipe on 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!
