So this morning I woke up bright (or should I say, dark) and early at 5 to do Candice’s vinyasa flow yoga class at 6am. The drive to the studio sucked, but the room that we practice is heated (like, 103F heated, hot as hell), so it felt good. Later after running some errands went home, to find my sisters, my niece’s dad, and my brother in law all fighting over something dumb, so I...

November Goals! Revisited

Meh, could’ve done better, made it between 7-10 cups a day.. -Take yoga classes, no specific amount, but just get to it. Took two! And planning on doing more that they added more classes to the schedule! -Workout 6 days a week, still try to do some kind of physical...
Tumblr Tuesday :)
So today’s recommendation is for the great Alex, aka smarthealth, he has been awesome and so incredibly patient with all my ridic questions that I ask him. SO if you aren’t already following him, you should. He’s pretty helpful :) Alex also happens to be my #1 crush of the week, coincidence? I think not. And my other just as important (among the many not shown here) crushes...
So I went out to eat, and decided to not worry...
Decided I wanted to just enjoy my food for once instead of seeing it as just numbers. And it was delicious. Went to Noodles, & Co., I got penne rosa with rice noodles and grilled chicken. Did look at the calories after I got home though..the damage: 940 calories. And that’s not including the blue powerade that I had to drink because the food was so spicy. Also on the bright side, met a...
Mmm think I discovered my new favorite drink.
I really wanted something dessert-y, so I decided to try my vanilla whey protein that I bought at the store today. Mixed it with my light vanilla soymilk- yummm! Vanilla goodness :)

I had the most delicious dinner tonight. And it looked so pretty! Bird’s Eye Steamfresh Lightly Sauced Rigatoni & Vegetables with Tomato Parmesan Sauce, grilled chicken, and roasted garlic melba toast. Yum! I went to the gym earlier, and it was AWESOME. Got in my weights and my cardio and even was in the steam room for 20 minutes (in 2 10-minute sessions)! And ended up taking...
I’m about to go to the store to buy some, what are your favorite flavors? What do you mix in with it?
Didn't plan to go to the gym,
but I got a text from my friend Cali texted me to go, so I figured I’d go. Realized that I definitely could not have her or any of the girls I know as workout buddies. To be honest, they wouldn’t be able to keep up. All I did with her was ab work, and only a couple of exercises and she about died. I liked pushing her to workout harder, though. Also realized I couldn’t have a...
I want to move.
Far far away. To the East coast or something. Just wanna go somewhere different. Anyone looking for a roommate?? :D
So..my family wants me to join the army.
I have no direction in life, no money, no degree yet, and no job experience. It makes sense. It really does. But I reeeeaally don’t want to. I don’t know. Any thoughts?
To-do list for today
davidlamb: 1. DOMINATE End of list. Hope yours is the same.

Went to go watch that Rapunzel movie “Tangled” with my friend Veronica and some of her friends. It was so cute!!!! I thought it was absolutely hilarious. Also, I guess this would be an NSV? Before the movie we stopped by the gas station to grab snacks, I was starvinggggg, but only grabbed a peanut butter power bar. Everyone else grabbed chips, candy and soda, and everyone else was...
It's been proven..
Not only do I run FASTER, but I also run LONGER when there’s a cute boy on the treadmill next to mine. Case in point- tonight, right when I was going to give up on my long run, the very cute manager of the gym got on the treadmill next to mine for his warm up, AND his cool down! Whilst there was plenty of free machines on the other side of the gym. I did not walk a single step when he was...
No matter how much I hate it..
I might have to do my long run on the treadmill today. The weather’s beautiful, but I can’t seem to find a decent trail by house that’s 6 miles right now. And every time I run around my neighborhood I end up getting creeped on by some gangster looking guys in a car.
Been meaning to post this for hours..
My workout today! Squats: 3x15 @ 45 lbs Deadlifts: 3x15 @ 30 lbs Barbell Row: 3x10 @ 35 lbs Cable Row: 3x12 @ 50 lbs Military Press: 3x12 @ 12 lbs Preacher Curls: 3x12 @ 20 lbs Frog Kicks: 3x15 Decline Curls: 4x16 @ 12.5 lbs (miscounted sets and didn’t realize till later) Dumbbell Shoulder Press: 3x15 @ 10 lbs Lateral Dumbbell Raise: 3x12 @ 8 lbs Seated Russian Twists: 4x25 ...
I love how crazy girls are sometimes. One night we’ll be all, “OMG I love boys they’re sooo cute!” to “boys suck!” the next.

Anonymous asked: Everyone's talking about having crushes on male fitblrs.. I want to know who they are!!! Are you single??? What kind of boys do you like???
So loving all this fitblr crush madness.
My main motivation to lift weights-
All the cute boys in the weight room. My favorite.
I love it when I ask guys how they are
and they’re like, “I’d be better if you were around..” So sweet.

Full. So full.
Oh god. Currently working on my workout plan for the weekend while watching that Scrooge movie with the family. Will post later.
Just got back from the gym.
Yeah, I know I have a race tomorrow morning. But it’s what was scheduled for today, so..whatever. It wasn’t bad, except for the drive to and from the gym, because it’s cold as hell outside (even though hell probably isn’t that cold- expression fail.) It’s 2 degrees F right now. I have no idea what to wear for the run tomorrow so I don’t freeze. Runner’s...
Just looked at the weather forecast for tomorrow morning for my race. -8 degrees F. FUCK ME. Guess I’ll just have to run faster? Lol.
