A little somethin' somethin' about myself....30 to be exact.

Imitation is the best form of flattery....so this one stems from a recent post from The Life From Jake where he listed 24 things about himself for all the people in all the lands to know about. And then my girl Reba K. did it so I knew I had to jump on board.  I saw their 24 and raised them 30.


Here are mine:

Workin' out Ghetto-Style with a tight budget

I know most people have a completely stocked home gym in their spare bedroom and can therefore save some brain cells from reading the rest of this post.

Wait....what's that you say?

You are barely scraping by with enough cash to shove some EZ Mac and box wine in your face hole and pass out?

I hear ya sista. I hear ya.

So what is a classy lady to do to stay in shape on a budget?

Get Creative!

What exactly IS PiYo Strength ?!?! Watch the VIDEO.

Have you been wondering what exactly IS this PiYo Strength I keep preaching about?



Have you ever thought maybe you don't know what it is and are worried you might not be able to do it?

Fear not.

PiYo Strength is a great way of exercising.  Not only does it tone and tighten, but lift, shape, and strengthen EVERYTHING.

It's easily choreographed and easy to follow.  

It will challenge you.

The soundtrack is kick ass and changes as we progress.

We train in the comfort and convenience of either my own home or a humble facility that will not intimidate you with machines or other women's in matchy-matchy outfits, full make-up and hair.

We get sweaty! 
If you aren't then I'm not doing my job.

This Sunday, April 21st, from 9-10am is our
SECOND FREE CLASS.  
FREE.
AS IN, 0 DOLLA BILLZ.
As in 
SHOW UP. WORK OUT. FEEL AWESOME. GO HOME. DONE. 

What have you got to lose?

And guess what?
There are TWO promotions going on as we speak.

THE FIRST?
Come to the Free class THIS SUNDAY and if you register on site for two or more back to back classes,
you get an additional $2 off each class!!
You will be taking each regular class for as low as $10!!!
THAT'S CHEAP PEOPLE.

THE SECOND?
Once regular classes start (in MAY), if you bring a new friend to a class, 
YOU GET YOUR NEXT CLASS FO' FREE!!

Still not convinced to get off your ass?

Here is a poorly edited video of yours truly 
giving you a little sneaky peek into the PiYo Strength World. 





Find me HERE on Facebook, or e-mail me (see video) for the address, directions, and additional information.

Let's Kick Some Ass !!
TBag. Out.

Operation Work.It.Out. Progress Pics Week #6

So last night I stopped by a friend's grand opening of her new in-home studio.  She has been killing it at the Y and with one on one personal training sessions and boot camps (which I'm starting in a couple weeks!) and has finally hit the big time to build out this fabulous studio. 
I'm so proud of her and can't wait to start taking a class or two with her. 

She is my inspiration to move forward with teaching PiYo classes and the like and what motivates me to work out and keep going each and every day. 

You can find out about her and her company info, Tight-n-It, HERE.

On my way home, Bayou wanted food...Like NOW, and he begged me to stop at Culver's for whatever god awful sodium filled dinner he wanted.  So I did.  BUT....I resisted getting myself something and instead popped a couple items in the oven when I got home instead.  Not glamorous, but not something I would regret the next day. 

And thank you sweet Jebus because I am super excited about the progress in the last week based on these photos!!  Take a look!

I can't hold the steering wheel or sit on a toilet

You guys.
I said I was going to bump up my workout routine this week and I meant it.
To confirm that it is working, I am fast approaching Day 3 of total body brick shit muscles.
What's that you ask?

Big Reveal!!! The contents of my lady bag....

I'm doing it.

I'm joining fellow bloggers on my FIRST LINK UP!  It's gonna come off as stupid to most other people...and I get it. It is rather silly. But...I have a couple minutes this morning so I thought,
Why the hell not?

My Breakfast Smoothie Recipe and what I'm doing to fight the fat

I switched up my workout routine today and did back to back Strength this morning.  Skilling said tomorrow is gonna be BEAU-TI-FUL so I plan to get my ass outside and Run Forest!

This morning my alarm went off at 5am and I redid YESTERDAY'S workout with a couple modifications.

Instead of 5 short sets, I doubled the length of every move for the first go around.

My arms and butt were not happy.

Second round? I held that shit in the air for all the counts in all the moves forever.

My muscles proceeded to fall off my bones in a fit of anger.

I then topped all this off with a 16 count set of V ups (fo yo abs)

Tomorrow we be running in the sunshine and warmth.
I like to run really fast during the chorus part of each song and jog during the rest.
Kind of like a pseudo-HIIT exercise.
Plus, it keeps my ADD in check when I'm distracted by garbage in somone's lawn or a squirrel.

Also? I have been making these kick ass breakfast smoothies that are delicious and portable. I used to eat oatmeal every morning but am currently OVER that shit.

Voila:
Don't be grossed out by the color.  It's delicious!

This is an 8oz. mason jar. I can make four at a time with my blender using the following:

6-8oz. Green Plant Juice
Most of a bag of pre-washed organic spinach
2 or so cups frozen mangoes
4 heaping spoonfuls of 0% fat plain Greek Yogurt
2 tbsp. Flax Seed (Make sure you refrigerate these after opening!)
2 tbsp. Chia Seed (since I don't add ice, this acts as a thickening agent if left to sitin the smoothie for at least for hours)
1 Splenda
Water, as needed if the smoothie is too thick.

Blend that shit up and divide into four containers. It holds up to two weeks in the fridge.

BOOM.
Green Juice Goddess,
TBag. Out.

Mush Monday- Things I'm grateful for

Hi guys....Day off of working out today!!! WOOT!!

Since my computer was out of commission, I was taking pics of things and couldn't show you. I knew you would be sad, so I wanted to highlight things that made me happy and things I'm grateful for.
