Confession Time

The cute element & background paper here came from Everyday Mom Ideas
adorable kit: Feel the burn! Check her out! So cute!
2 weeks ago I posted our 30 day photos and shared with everyone in our little victory and here we are 2 weeks away from our 60 day photos and I'm nervous to say the least about this weigh in/ photo change. I was 169 in my 30 day photos and Im just hitting 167 this week! hahaha I did my measurements and no loss there either. Hmmmm....Maybe it was the subway...or the pizza I ate at the super bowl. *hangs head in shame* BUT! I need to get my bum in gear! I had a goal of 159 for the next weigh in. Meaning 8lbs from now to then. Not sure I can achieve that in such a small time but I sure am going to try! And I'm going to do it any way I can! As I mentioned before I like to do things that make working out fun and even the smallest workout means something right?? So I made myself this little motivational workout to do whenever I want to grab something from the kitchen or maybe in the evening when I feel like I need a little something extra. Its just a simple little workout to jam out when your favorite tune pops on the radio or like mentioned before that little something extra for your day! I plan on making this my something extra each day to push through the next two weeks and hopefully make them a success! Here's to day 60....I'm gonna kick your tail!!

Pita Pocket Pizza

On our quest to better eating this has been one of those recipes that is a regular in our house can't wait to hear what you all think! Take the jump to get the simple recipe!

Couch to Color Run

Getting into the fitness life has shown me that there is SO many ways to make this lifestyle "fun"! If your anything like me, I have never been a fitness person. I was the girl in school that hated gym and recess and was happy to sit on the bench sing, write, and doddle. Anything but run, jump, and play! Ha!

So in order to keep myself from getting discouraged in my new little adventure, I have involved myself in a lot of different exercises. While I was loving the results of my Power 90 work out, the repeated same thing everyday was killing me! I was forcing myself to do it, and no one wants to feel like its a chore cause lets be honest with we enjoy making ourselves take out the trash, doing laundry, or dishes, do we sometimes find our selves saying "Oh it can wait till tomorrow?". Exactly. I can't let that happen with my working out! I'm doing so well!

So! What am I doing? Grab my phone, hooked up with Endomondo (great iPhone app to track your workouts and your progress), I use My Fitness Pal (Use this for my food journal, tracking my calories and weight loss.), and the most important one my Couch 2 5K iPhone app. It uses interval training to help you get adjusted to running and work up to running 3 miles in 9 weeks! I'm on day 4 with this and I can already tell a difference! Now. I'm sure your thinking how is running "fun" though. Let me tell ya....


I have named my 5K training  couch to color for THIS race! They have in select areas all over the US, where they throw color cornstarch at the runners as they reach different stations throughout the course! I have seen so many photos and pins, ect about how awesome this race is and before I was even getting active I wanted to be a part of one of these races and I'm excited to say this June I WILL be running my first 5K! I'm so excited and can not wait to really enjoy my first 5k!

Are you a runner? Have you participated in a color run? If so I would LOVE to hear your feedback and any advice!
