The Gym, A New Smoothie and a Severe Case of Atmophobia

Today was one of those days where I would have rather do anything than go to the Gym. Its 70 degrees outside, in January, and I can think of a million other things to do than go workout. But… I went. Now, of course, after the fact I am glad that I did as I sit here eating a left over enchilada and chips and dip. Tuesdays and Thursdays are usually my blah gym days. While Hayden is in this 5t program, he goes to school at 9:30 which cuts in to all the good classes on Tues/Thurs that I can never make. So, I am stuck motivating myself. While singing in my head “Go big girl what you gone do, go go big girl what you gone do”.

I started with this Elliptical workout:


It appears easy, with one of the lowest number resistance workouts I have seen. But, it was tough! I worked up a major sweat and burned about 420 calories in the process.

Next after giving my legs a good stretch, I did this arm workout.


 I really liked this one. Not very repetitive, I didn’t get bored and I could feel the burn.

I used 10 lb. free weights.


Today I wore the Adidas Marathon 10

I have them in the Blue and Green below:

Seeing as Hayden is only in school 5 hours a day, we have to rush home from the gym for nap time and mommy time which usually consist of a smoothie and a bath. In silence. It’s heavenly. Today I wasn’t really feeling a creamy/milky smoothie being as it feels like spring outside I wanted something a little more fruity and refreshing. Using what I had I home I concocted something up and it was the best one i’ve made BY FAR. I have pinned countless smoothie recipes calling for 10 different ingredients and I never like them. I’m a fast plain and simple smoothie girl, and this hit the spot.



1.5 cups Market Pantry Mango Frozen Fruit Blend

2/3 cup Orange Juice

Squirt of Honey

1 scoop EAS Lean 15 Vanilla Protein Powder

Put in Blender and Blend until desired consistency.

Easy and refreshing…Just the way I like it.




Or, if you google it… rest assured the picture above will pop up.

Needless to say when our hype everything up of weathermen started mentioning the threat of Severe weather tonight on Saturday, the anxiety started to build.


See…before this whole pregnant stuff happened, I have a nice little bottle of Xanax awaiting me everytime the sirens go off. Which, when you live in Memphis, is often. But now that I am with child and have to be all body conscious and such I will have to just be a big girl about it and deal like most human beings… prayer. So while all of you are tucked away in your bed tonight, I will be up stalking all of my weather peeps on twitter and thinking every little sound is one of our many humongous trees falling onto my house and making the husband go grab the kids real quick when really its just the wind blowing. DRAMATIC…I know (try living with me).



*Disclaimer: I often screen shot workouts I find on pinterest on my phone instead of pinning them. This means I have no idea who or where they come from. I do not take credit in anyway for these workouts or any other screen shots I may post.
