Checking In

I so wish I were checking in at the airport, or a cruise ship, or even a Greyhound bus.

That'd be great, and it would definitely give me more to write about today!

But since my little piece of the blog-o-sphere did not get any love from me yesterday, I figured I should pay it some attention today.

Lately, I've been up to a whole lot of stuff that's really not very exciting- but I'll try my best to make it appear to be :)

Kayla over at My Kind of Yellow got me inspired to jump back into doing Insanity, so I've been working out and doing the Insanity dvds for the last week- let me tell you- it's name is PERFECT!!  It is pretty much insane, but after a week of doing it I've noticed that I actually do have stomach muscles!  Who knew?

About a month ago I went for an entire week with only drinking home-made fruit and vegetable juice, and I've really been trying to focus on being healthier and being more respectful to my body- it is the only one I'll ever have.  So hubby and I have been making many more meals at home and I've been avoiding my mondo bowls of cereal I used to always have for breakfast- baby steps, right?!

Perhaps someday I'll have reached a place where I have "after" pictures that show a difference from the "before" pictures that I have sitting in my camera and I'll show both of them. 

A girl can dream, right? 

The fact that I'm working towards that dream is more than I've done in a long time though, so I'm pretty proud!

Along with the week of juicing, Insanity and home-cooked meals, I've been watching The Biggest Loser every Monday.  I love love love that show- and it definitely keeps me motivated!!  Though I'm still a bit puzzled about the whole idea behind it- it's a television show about losing weight.  Which means I sit my ass on the couch and watch other people work out. 

Maybe I'll start doing some squats or push ups while I watch it...

oh who am I kidding- after doing Insanity all I want to do is sit. 

I hope you're all excited for FRIDAY!!!

Hahaha I know every time I watch Biggest Loser I'm always thinking the same thing, shouldn't I be actually doing this stuff instead of sitting and watching it?

But hey, it sure makes for inspiring TV :)

Happy Almost Friday!

The show is all about inspiring people and showing them they need to change, you are already doing that!! :) you deserve to sit down for an hour or 2 and watch it!!

You are SO welcome for giving you that extra push. Sometimes, that's all we need :)

An entire week with only drinking home-made fruit and vegetable juice? That's a great idea! One that I need to emulate :)

you are stronger than I am, girl. I am the world's unhealthiest eater and I don't know when the last time I hit a gym was.

Oh wait, yes I remember it very clearly now. I flew off the treadmill and cancelled my membership within the first 10 minutes.
