Who wears short shorts!?!

Not this girl... yet. I still don't have the thighs to pull those off- not that ANYONE should wear those things.


Anywho- I just worked out and I look LOVELY. Wanna see?

Oh who is that b-e-a-utiful lady!?

Yup- its me. Right after my workout. I think the fact that I was still able to move after is a good sign that my workout has plateaued.... Have no fear, however.

I have a NEW workout DVD!! Its called The FIRM: Dance. And its the same b**** from The FIRM Bootcamp video: Alison Davis. That woman can burn in hell.

This blog post had a point I swear....

Want some more inspiration!? Here it is ladies!

Do you really need that burger,
That diet Coke or fries?
Because amidst the salt and calories
Is a fatty pack of lies.

Chocolate will not comfort you,
It'll only bring you down.
But fruits and veggies will always be true
And won't fool you around.

Sitting down to watch T.V.
Will only end in fat,
But getting up and working out
Will be sure to get rid of that.

So what do you think you're doing?
Why are you still here?
Go out and be the best you can be
Because, darling

IT'S EASTER!!!! Who wants to get fat!?

....Can I vote "no"? Its all about portions today, ladies. For example- I had a thin slice of strawberry cake (to DIE for by the way), the smallest brownie slice known to man, and a medium portion of rice and corn mixed together all delicious-like. (I'm Asian. We do weird things with our food.)

Anyway- the moral of the story is that you can go ahead and eat that cake, or deviled egg, or hell- eat your whole basket of candy if you want. Just remember to COUNT YOUR CALORIES. or remember to work all of those calories off. The more you eat today, the harder you'll have to work tomorrow to burn off all of those sugary, nasty calories.

Also- if anyone has any ideas for workouts, words of inspiration for others, or just want to give your two cents, please share your comments either here on the blog or on my facebook page. Thanks for reading, ladies! You all are what keeps me working out!

Keep up the healthy habits!!!

New Post

I was going for an original title...

I just finished The Ninety Nine AGAIN. I'm not gonna lie- I'm growing less and less impressed myself as it is becoming easier the more I do it. Time to search for a newer, more demanding workout to mix it up a little bit. If you have any ideas, throw 'em my way!!

But until then, I have another tidbit of inspiration for you all:

No more "I'll do it tomorrow" unless it's "I'll do it tomorrow, too."
No more "One more won't hurt," unless you're talking about sets or miles.
No giving up unless it's bad habits.
No more avoiding situations because "I don't like the way I look" unless it's because you're sweaty from busting your ass at the gym.
No more "buts..." unless it's "But I want to run more!!"
No more "I can't" unless it's "I can't because I'm working out."
No more "It's too hard" unless you're talking about your abs.
No more "I'm too tired" only "I'm tired of being unhealthy."
I believe in you, ladies! Don't stop working!!!

Attempt No. 2

Today was my second attempt at The Ninety Nine!!

Last time I did this, some of you asked how long it took, so I documented my times for each individual event. I started at 5:26, ended at 6:10 without the run. With the run, I ended at 6:17. I know, a little short of 11 minutes, but I have NO stamina.

The 99's took me about 8 minutes.
88's were about 7.
77's about 6.
66's about 5.
55's about 4.
44's about 3.
33's about 2.
and 22's about 1 1/2. (notice a trend?)

Along with my progress reports, I've been finding some other tidbits of information I'm going to start sharing with everyone. The first was the inspirational message yesterday. Again- I'm making printed copies of it to have around the house so I can see it every day. If any of you would like a copy please let me know and I'll get it to you somehow.

Today, I found a few ways to ignite your calorie burn during your workout. These include:
Swinging your arms 90 degrees
Quench with cool water
Listen to Music (This helps prolong your workout)
Put on some weight (Gain muscle to lose fat)
Don't skip stretching
Break up your sets. You need to keep your muscles guessing.
Run on an incline
Cut workouts in half. Take a small break, just remember to keep moving.
Log at least 12 minutes of continuous exercise

And remember to keep thinking positive, ladies! Even if you're the slowest one out there, you're still lapping anyone sitting on the couch!!!

Some Inspirational Words

Hey Ladies! So, I found this on and thought I'd share it with all of you. I'm typing it up and printing it out so I can put it on the fridge and the mirror- places where I'll see it several times a day. If any of you want copies let me know!! and Enjoy!

      Hey, guess what? You're going to be skinny this summer. Maybe not as skinny as you'd like, but you'll look better than you do now. You might not reach your goal weight, but you'll be damn near close, and look amazing. Do you know why? Because you worked for it. You worked for that amazing body and those tiny thighs. Those naturally skinny girls who eat a grocery store and lose weight? They can't honestly call themselves strong because they didn't work for their body. But us, we did. We are working our asses off because we're going to look incredible. And not for anybody else, but for ourselves. We all have our own ways, but we're all going to reach our goal weights. We're going to put that food down when we don't really need it. We're going to drink a gallon of water every day because we know the wonders it can do. We are going to make sure not to miss a day of working out if it isn't necessary, because this is important to us.
This is what we believe in.
We believe in thin.

Oops! I completely forgot to blog my results yesterday!

I completed The Ninety Nine!!!

Well, everything except the run...
So- I did 484 of EVERYTHING

For those of you scratching your noggins, this means I did:
484 Jumping Jacks
484 Crunches
a 484 second wall sit
484 Leg Lifts
and 44 Push Ups

I didn't do the run since it was a torrential downpour outside, but I did manage to do everything else! (And here I was, thinking I'd crap out on number 77) :)

Here's the low down- the first 99 of everything SUCKED. 99 jumping jacks, eh- okay. 99 crunches, OUCH. 99 second wall sit, Holy Crap! I thought I was gonna die!! 99 Leg lifts, make it stop! 9 push ups, eh- deal.

It honestly started getting easier as the numbers went down. HOWEVER, every time I got to number 40 in the jumping jacks I started cramping up. It. was. murder. But I swear every time it started, I just thought "You better knock it off, cramp. I will kill you." and it shirked away :) How's that for the power of thinking? I encourage all of you to try it! Its really a rush to know that you've finished it almost entirely. (Damn that run!!)

I plan on redoing this challenge until I finish the run. How long will this take me? Only time will tell!! Wish me luck!! And good luck working out, ladies!!

Lord Have Mercy

Tomorrow, I embark on The Ninety Nine. A.K.A. "If I finish this alive I must be invincible".

For those of you wondering, The Ninety Nine consists of the following:
99 Jumping Jacks
99 Crunches
99 second Wall Sit
99 Leg Lifts
9 Push Ups

Then you get to do 88, 77, 66, 55, 44, 33, 22

And finally: an 11 minute run.

Will I live? Ugh. Probably not. But wish me luck anyway!!

Walking is Better Than Nothing :)

All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking- Friedrich Nietzsche

 So while this whole foot thing is being bothersome, I've taken to walking. Today, I walked in Ames with Will's sister, Megan. We walked about 2 1/4 miles and just chatted. I don't know if any of you have ever just walked and talked to someone for a long amount of time, but it really lets you just think things out loud (if you walk with the right person, that is.)

So, as we're walking and talking, I noticed just how many people were out and about, and how much money I was wasting on my gym membership. Today I am dropping my membership at Ames Racquet and Fitness center.

I am NOT recommending that everyone go drop their fitness membership.

All I'm saying is that I never go anymore. All I do is walk outside and since its so much nicer, I can do this more often and for longer periods of time. (Plus, I can get a little bit of a tan!!) :)

Lets face it- if I don't keep working out by either walking or SOMETHING I will stop working out all together. I hope all of you are sticking with it as well.

Bikini season is just around the corner!! 
(and now you're allowed to hate me!) :)
