Swim Suit season is creeping up!


1rst cardio work out


We are weeks away from swim suit season…are you ready? I know I am not quiet there yet, or at least not in my mind therefore I have switched up my cardio to give me an extra fat burning boost! My husband suggested we start doing treadmill cardio Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, allowing weight training for Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Last week was our first week to begin our new routine. I was completely shocked at how hard it was to walk on the treadmill with the incline at 15 degrees, so since I was just starting out, I took it down to 10 degrees. I hope to challenge myself more each week. I will be sure to post each work out I create in my head as I go with you all who are following along.

I can say that at the end of last week I did lose 2 lbs. I however was keeping an eye on my clean diet and drinking lots of water.

This cardio session is intense, you will sweat a lot! Make sure you are hydrating through out the day, and you might want to bring a change of dry clothes to change into afterwards! 😉

I don’t sweat I sparkle!!

We don’t Sweat, We Sprakle

Well it’s Friday and we have all survived another work week! YEA! I love Friday mornings because I get to hook up with a few girl friends to get our SWEAT on in Z U M B A class! (Missed you Jamie and Amy) I guess I just had a hunch this morning when I woke up that this class was going to make me sweat my tail off. I had to pull out my I don’t Sweat I SPARKLE tank top!


The class was pretty intense today! We had a fill in Zumba instructor and she kept our heart rate sky high what felt like the whole hour. By the end of class we were a hot sweaty mess! This was definitely a day where I was glad that I had my facial cleanser wipes on hand in my gym bag! I ended my work out session alone working my back and shoulders.




I had to hurry back to my home town to pick up my kids from school! LAST DAY of school for the 2013-2014 school year. Where does the time go? We loaded the car with gasoline and headed to take my step kids to their Mother’s for Summer break!

On the drive home we went through a rain storm, nothing serious, and I ended the day right with a yummy delicious fresh oriental salad at Applebee’s.

It was a crazy busy day, but I enjoyed every minuet of it!

What did your Friday look like?
