My neck.. My back...

My neck... my back.... my thighs and well.... lets just not go there...

Have you ever heard of Alison Davis?? Well, she's a bitch. Sure, she can make you work your butt off (literally) but I have never hated someone so much in my life.
Alison Davis has this little treat of a workout video called The Firm: Bootcamp Maximum Calorie Burn. Last night, Will's sister, Megan, and I decided it would be SO MUCH FUN to stay home and workout rather than go to the gym. "How bad could it be?"
We. are. idiots.
Its a 52 minute video. We start with a warm up. Not bad.
We go into plyometrics. Eh- could be better, but I'm still moving.
We move into Cardio. Holy Shit. Having trouble breathing. But, we keep going.
Plyometrics 2. I feel like death. We pause the video. Talk it out. Do we continue? Whats the worst that could happen?
Cardio 2: "Holy shit, I peed!" Those are the words I hear as I'm reaching for my water. I freak out- whip around- and there's Megan, standing next to a mess of wet on the carpet.... a mess of WATER.
We're both dying at this point. Do we keep going?? Hell Yes. We're no quitters.
Grand finale: COOL DOWN! We made it. We're beasts. Hold your applause- we're not worthy.. or we are :)

Unfortunately, I can barely move today. My bum feels like I'm a frat boy that got whelped by my brothers. Now who's ready for round 2??

Its been awhile..

Wondering about my progress since November?

 Well, for anyone who has actually been reading my blog, sorry I left you hanging for so long.

Since November, I kind of fell off the counting calories wagon. But not to worry, I haven't given up completely. I started to eat a little healthier. Difficult? A little. When you're on a tight budget, its a little harder to buy healthy food, since its not always the cheapest.

So, I've been eating A LOT of frozen chicken breast with rice. My favorite taste so far has been my chicken adobo. 2 boneless chicken breasts (sans fat) with soy sauce and vinegar cooking 4 hours in the slow cooker? Mmmmm. It literally falls apart- and since its boneless, its a whole lot less of a mess. Paired up with rice, its just like I'm back at home.
                    Another favorite is 2 boneless chicken breasts cooked in lemon pepper marinade- again on rice.

In the past two weeks, I have lost 5 pounds. Sure, its not a huge feat, but its a start!
