It's Friday and I'm ready to sing....

It's Friday Bitches! And I totally said that in a Snooki voice too. Friday means 2 things...besides the obvious start of the weekend...1) PARTY TIME! And by party time, I totally mean sleeping in until 7:30am and staying up waaaaay late ;-), and 2) FITNESS FRIDAY!

So I haven't really done too much in the way of working out for the past week. We are finally moved into our new place. One of the things I love about it, is the fact that we live on the 2nd floor. Um duh, built in workout So I guess I can say I sorta worked out? I kid, I kid. But I have been swimming almost everyday this week so there you go. Since I haven't been doing any of my "hard core" and "aggressive" workouts, I have been really good about what I am eating. So good that my snacking consists of things like popcorn, string cheese, and even a salad. Not all at one time of course. I will be back to my regular schedule of workouts starting this afternoon or tomorrow morning.
To make linking up easier, Duckie creates a fill-in-the-blank thingy. Easy peasy. So link up!

THIS WEEK I: Added swimming to my daily routine and have made better eating choices like cutting my portion size down.

THE HARDEST PART WAS: Believe it or not, but it's hard just not being able to workout. Because of the move, we have boxes everywhere and I have given all my free time to just unpacking. Man we have a lot of ish! Also saying no to going out to lunch with my coworkers everyday. 

MY GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT THIS WEEK WAS: Definitely portion control. Y'all know I LOVE food! But I cut down my portion sizes at "big" meals and have been more consistent with eating 6-7 small meals a day.

OKAY, I FELT GUILTY BECAUSE: Even though my eating has gotten a lot better, I did have 2 sugary ass sweet teas this week. I also have had at least one beer every night this week. Talk about bloat city!

NEXT WEEK I'M GOING TO TRY: Weight lifting 3 times a week instead of 2,  and get back on my regular bodyrock workout regime.

Head on over to see Duckie and link up. Comment here so I can come on over and support you on your fitness journey as well.

Fitness Friday - Short shorts

"We wear short shorts..."
Sing it ladies! Summer time is here so let those legs out! Tis the season for mini skirts, sundresses, and short shorts. Time to get those gams looking FA-BU-LOUS! 

Don't worry, I got you covered. Couple little things that you can start doing today (or tomorrow) to get those legs ready to be seen.

Take the stairs. Up & down LOL. I had to add that since a lot of folks don't mind walking down stairs but never ever walk up. Keep your posture straight and if you want to make it harder don't stomp up/down the stairs, stay on your pallet the whole time. You'll feel it in your thighs and calves...oh yes you will. I've been walking up & down 4 flights of stairs to and from my office all this week. With as much as I work out you would think it would be a cake walk. WRONG. I was winded and out of breath and sweaty. Now a week later, it is definitely getting better ;-)

No stairs? Try squats. I personally LOVE squats. And you can do them anywhere, at anytime because all you need is your body. It works you legs and your booty. Just remember to do them right. Knees directly over your toes, heels on the ground, like your sitting down in a chair. In our house we like to do contests on who can get the lowest and stay low the longest without losing form. Hard core? Squat down and as you come back up, add a quick jump at the top.

Lunges. Don't know what else to say about these except oh ya feel the burn! Just remember to keep good form. (You should ALWAYS keep good form while doing any exercise)

Donkey butt kicks. Aw come on y'all already know about these. Channel Jane Fonda and get to it.

There are a ton of leg workouts that you can try. Look online, check YouTube. OR....just do 3 sets of 12 for each of the exercises I listed above. Well except the stairs lol. 
Don't forget to link up with my love Duckie and check out my girl Stephanie! These 2 chickies are FAB & have really kept me on my toes and keep motivating me. 

P.S. You can follow me and my workouts on my other blog Workin' It.

*I am not a fitness professional. All the above is from just ME. I just like to workout and let everyone know what works for me. As always, please consult a physician before starting any new major workout routine.*

Throwback Thursday - And then there was cake

I was stalking Big Daddy's FB page and found this picture. LOL. Just your traditional cake in the face. Shortly after, he did lean forward and let me smoosh cake into his sweet face.

I think I shall actually do a post about that day. It was SO FUN...complete with an earthquake.
