Battan down the hatches, friends!

Hurricane Irene is on her way..

Hope we don't get too much rain/damage.

Yesterday, rest day.

Today 13 minutes treadmill (1 minute walk, alternate with 1 minute run), then 20 minutes on the arc trainer.

Got some Vibram Fivefingers:

I have to say that I absolutely LOVE these shoes. My feet finally have no pain when I work out!

3 day shake cleanse..

I cannot remember what exercise I did after last Wednesday! I think I went to the gym Thursday, but for the life of me, I cannot remember.

Anyway, we were car shopping Saturday and then Sunday and Monday I was lazy.

Tonight, I'll be on the elliptical or arc trainer and then I have my martial arts club.

I just started a crossfit group and our first meetup will be Thursday evening.

Anyway, today I'm trying to cleanse, I started a 3 day Shakeology cleanse. (You can order if you'd like:

So far, so good.. I had a chocolate shake mixed with 1/2 banana for breakfast, and I'm getting ready to drink my greenberry w/ 1/2 banana for lunch. I have a mango for snack later.

For dinner we are having grilled pork chops and steamed veggies and a shake after workout tonight.

Last weekend..

Not a good weekend food wise. I didn't eat totally insane, but I did eat off plan. Traveling and vacation seem to be hard for me. Anyway, gained back 8 freaking pounds that I lost, so pretty irritated. Hopefully just water. Back on plan today.

Wednesday: warmed up and 30 minutes boxing, I was exhausted after!

Thursday: I cannot remember, but I think I skipped thursday.

Friday and Saturday: LOTS of walking around NYC

Tuesday (Last night): 10 minute warm up and 60 minutes of martial arts, and a jog/walk around the neighborhood while Alex rode his bike.

I want to puke!

My friend had to change to Wednesday, so I did 15 minutes on the arc trainer to warm up, 5 minutes on the row machine and then a 4x4 wod:

25 lb kettlebell swings,
15 boxjumps,
15 sumo high pulls
15 abmat situps


I want to puke.

A great morning..

I feel good today, still a little sore from Saturday's AMRAP workout.

I took Sunday off from exercise, because my inner thighs and back were screaming. I decided to rest.. my son and I were going to go swimming, but decided on seeing "Mr. Popper's Penguins" on base, which was a good thing because as we were driving towards the theatre, we saw lots of lightning.

Today will be boxing with my friend (she is a trainer at my gym), Stephanie. I'm sad though, because I've just recently met and became friends, but her and her husband will be pcs'ing to the west coast in a week or so. :(

Paleo is going good still. I think I may be at 9 pounds gone. I am definitely feeling awesome. I can tell a big difference; my skin is really clearing up (I've had horrible acne on my forehead lately) and I can definitely tell that I am having less gastrointestinal issues. No bloating, no gas, just feeling terrific.

This weekend we are heading to NYC. I am meeting up with an Australian friend that I've known online for about 10 years. I am VERY excited to meet her! Also, my son will be seeing his cousins, Kaori and Reika. This will be the first time we meet Reika. :)

Also my sister and her fiance will be heading up with us. I am hoping that Saturday morning we can go do something fun, maybe a museum.. I really, really want to see the Alexander McQueen exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art.

Only a month to go before my Sister in Law's wedding! I cannot wait!

Have a great day!
