Palm Beach Chic on a Budget

Hello again you beautiful people! I promised I would write about my living and dining area and here it is.  This space was such a difficult area to work with because it is a tiny rectangle of a room and its not very big at all. Like I’m talking itty bitty.  It doesn’t help that my husband thinks its a great idea to keep our mountain bikes in the room too.  He doesn’t trust leaving them anywhere else.   Continue reading

I have recently come to love love love decorating and color!    What the heck is with everyone decorating with all these drab neutral colors. Like its so blah and no life in it at all.  I won’t lie to you and say I didn’t jump on that band wagon a few years ago but I found a new love for bright and happy colors!  bright pinks and kelly green, lime and orange oooooh and bold black and white! Huzzahhhh!  Color makes the heart happy! Continue reading

Moving Across the Country

First of all who the heck in their right mind moves across the country 5 months after they get married? I mean come on they say the first year is hard but lets just see how hard we can make it….am I right?

My husband Corbin and I got this wild hair one day and decided lets just pack up all our stuff and go.  When else in our lives are we going to be able to be so flexible and do something so spontaneous.  So that is just what we did.  We packed a moving truck up and drove 16 hours to San Antonio Texas.  In the dead heat of the summer………who does that?!?!?! 100 plus degrees and tons of humidity.  Everyone thinks we are crazy and maybe we are a little but who cares.

Back to life back to reality ………….Wow it has been quite some time since I have written anything on here and I apologize. Life just happens sometimes.  Since My last post I have traveled the country, gotten married, and right now about to make some huge life changing decisions.  I got certified as a personal trainer and I have done so much over the past two years I don’t even know where to begin.   I guess I will try and go back to a few things but for now I will start with getting MARRIED.  Thats right you heard me, the girl who said she would never get married, got married.  I love my hubs more than anything and I would not have it any other way.      I will get to posting our engagement and our wedding here soon but for now I wanted to let you all know that Im back and ready for action!

BE FIT Challenge: Rock it like you mean it!………….Instead of this cardio session I went on a 10 mile mountain bike ride and absolutely rocked it! We did blue sky trail and had a great time! Riding my mountain bike is more my style of cardio.

BE FIERCE Challenge: Make your plan…….. well since I have a membership to 24 I am going to the gym all the time which is great! My next goals for my body is to reduce cellulite appearance and lean out my rear end and thighs some more. I think continuing with cardio will help. I also plan on going to quite a few classes with my girl Rachael at 24 because she got a membership too!

BE FABULOUS Challenge: Favorite Be Fabulous Challenges……. I think the be fabulous challenges were some of my favorite for this program.  Every single one of the Challenges was fun and pampering in some way, which to be honest I really needed badly.  I learned to take more time for myself and make sure I am doing everything in my power to be the best me possible!

I am soon extremely happy that I completed this program. I am a better person for doing it and I fell in love with the way K+K do their programs! I can’t wait to start another one! YaY for me! 🙂

Cheers but not for long! I have lots in store for you guys!

Saturday Day 27: Fit Fierce, and Fabulous!

Todays word of the day: Proud

Todays Mantra: I have so many accomplisments to celebrate!

Morning bootycall: Well I bet you can guess that one! haha my walk with my girl Lulu!

BE FIT Challenge: The Victory Lap………………well I walked and worked all day long in Denver for a family freind and I walked miles and miles in 85 degree weather so I called that my workout because I sweated and worked really hard all day long.  I didnt stop moving once from 8am-7pm.  It was a good day and I will do this Victory lap the following week just to say Ive done it!

BE FIERCE Challenge: Rack up your victories………………..here we go!

Body:

When I first started this program, Physically I felt…. sluggish and lazy and not myself.  I was ready for something to kick my butt back in gear.

Today I feel….. Amazing and much more in shape than I was before I started this journey 27 days ago. I dont feel bloated as much and altogether more energized.

My energy level at the begining was….. about a 5, somedays it was good and some days I just didnt feel up to anything!

Today my level is…….most the time a 10 or a 9 depending on how much I did the day before!

On day one my measurements were……arms 11, waist 26, thigh 21, booty 36.

Today they are………well I did not change that much because It was not like I had a bunch of weight to lose or anything but I definitly feel more confident in my own skin.  My measurements now are……arms 1o, waist 25, thigh 19.5, booty 35 and I Weigh 115lbs which has not changed.

The things I struggled with in the begining but now feel like they are doable is the cardio workouts.  I hate cardio especially running! UGH but I like the cardio workouts they put in the book it spiced things up a bit and I can do them better now.

Mind:

On day one I felt these emotions………lazy, upset, slacker, sluggish.

Today I feel….like a new girl! I feel happy and excited each day again!

Spirit:

In the spirit of love I have grown in these ways…… I feel like I am more loving and caring towards all.

Generosity…….I want to help and do things for people and I just want to give poeple gifts and hugs!

Joy…….. I am happier in general, I thing about making peoples days brighter and I try to make someones day each day!

Beauty……. I spend more time on myself, I do care what I look like inside and out and I want to make sure I am taking the best care of myself as I can!

BE FABULOUS Challenge: Reward Yourself………..I got myself some new Lululemon leggings and a pair of stance socks and All natural Beauty Counter products that I have been wanting for a really long time! I also had a ton of Chips and Salsa with dinner because it is my guilty pleasure and I earned it! Both Corbin and I love chips and salsa and can go through a ton in one sitting we have to watch ourselves!

I guess I am most proud of myself because I told myself I would do this 28 day program and blog about it and I did it! I accomplished just that! That alone has motivated me to continue to blog and become a health coach online!

Fab Food of the Day!: Garlic………………Add this stuff to your food to add some flavor! I love love love garlic on and in just about anything!

YEW! Tomorrow is the last day!

Wednesday Day 24: Fit, Fierce, and Fabulous!

Well first day at work was a success! yay! It felt good to be working and making some money.  Except I was worried about Lulu alllll freakin day long! I cant imagine how mothers feel when they have to leave their children all day.  Mine is just a dog and I was worried sick all day!   So I made up for it by taking her to the dog park for two hours right when I got home. She loves it because she has a little mini Aussie that she plays with and they are the perfect size!

 

Todays word of the day: Strong

Todays Mantra: I am mighty. I am strong. I am FIERCE!

Bootycall: Well my walk was a little short today because it was my first day at work be we got it in none the less and it was freezing and raining brrrrrrrr, Lulu loves the cold though!

BE FIT Challenge: Rock it like you mean it!………………….I did this one after dinner after work and after the dog park at around 8pm! No excuses people! get er done!

BE FIERCE Challenge: Take a Bad Habit Holiday……………….just for today tackle that bad habit and make and effort more than usual.   I made it a point to not bite my nails at work today even though I really wanted to.

BE FABULOUS Challenge: Find your power symbol………………….I have a photo of Christmas Abbott and Dana Lynn Bailey who are two BAD ASS B***TCHES! They Motivate me daily when I am getting dressed each day!   I would love to have some empowering signs above my vanity.  I think I will go buy some canvas and make one this weekend.   I am in need of a doterra order here soon so I will order cedarwood,sage and ylang ylang to help fortify strength.  I am going to wear a scarf to work tomorrow that is purple because its my power color!    Everyday use something that inspires you to be the powerhouse that you are.    I am FIERCE!

“though she be but little she is fierce”   I love that mantra! I want it engraved on a mantra band!

Fab Food Of the Day: Quinoa……… I really enjoy hot quinoa with salmon or some chicken I think with a lot of grass fed butter it is amazing!  It is a complete protein and is rich in iron to keep those blood cells healthy and packed with magnesium.

Well thats all folks!

 

-Cheers!

Tuesday Day 23: Fit, Fierce, and Fabulous!

Hey everyone! I got a job! well its a job until I find something that I really want at least. But hey its income! Woot!

Todays Word of The Day: Authentic

Todays Mantra: Today I will speak my mind.

Morning Bootycall: Morning walk with Lulu of course!

BE FIT Challenge: My Choice!…………… Woot I loved that! I went to 24 hour fitness and did 45 minutes on the stairmaster and then 4 sets of 10-12 reps of heavy deadlifts with a spine decompressing hang in between each set.

BE FIERCE Challenge: Just Say It………………..this is the time to let people know things with kindness and respect. Today the lady at Sprouts rang up one of my items too many times and I spoke up and told her about it.  I also walked up to the cleaning lady at the gym today and told her that she does a wonderful job at keeping the place so clean and tidy all the time, and that I really apprecaited all her hard work!

BE FABULOUS Challenge: Go Au Naturel…………………..today I wore no makeup and I did not do my hair. I dont have a problem with not wearing makeup because I am just past that stage in my life where I feel like I always have to have it on.  I do love makeup dont get me wrong but I am not afraid to go out and have a normal day without any on either.  I am kind of a Tomboy so I could care less about what I look like sometimes.  Nor do I care what other people think of me either which is soooo extremely liberating!

Fab food of the day: Your Choice!…………………YAY! I picked cucumbers today and I made an amazing greek dish for dinner tonight!     I pulled out my Meals Made Simple Cookbook by Danielle Walker and I made her Greek Dressing, summer squash greek salad, and greek lamb burgers with taziki (yes I spelled it wrong) suace.  ALL FROM SCRATCH! We put the burgers on a bed of lettuce with a slice of onion and tomato and a large dollop of taziki sauce! YES, I know plain greek yogurt is not paleo but I do not have an issue with dairy I just typically stay away from dairy.  So once and a while having dairy for me is not an issue.  Plus plain greek dairy has no sugar in it so thats a plus!  Dinner was amazing by the way though!
