I hope you are all having a great summer! I can't believe next week is the 4th of July. I'm going out of town with some friends & I'm looking forward to having some fun. What are your plans? I'm looking forward to playing some tennis, laying out, swimming and walking as much as possible.
How has everyone's workout's been going?! I've been getting some really great classes in lately at my gym. I like to switch things up so that I don't get bored with it, sometimes a couple miles on the elliptical can seem like hours. On Monday I did a full body workout called Barbell Strength. From start to finish is was about an hour long and it kicked my butt. I had about 15lbs on my bar the whole class while we worked on our shoulders, biceps, triceps, backs, legs and abs. Pretty much everything was sore the next day. Tuesday was cardio - Strike & I became besties. It was a mix between kickboxing and self defense. There was plenty of squats, kicks, punches, jump ropes and jumping jacks going on for a complete hour. It was probably one of the most fun classes I've taken.
I woke up this morning with super sore shoulders, but it's a good sore. I'm already feeling like I have sexy arms and shoulders - I might not be able to see just yet but I can feel it. That's the most important thing. It's not about what you think you should look like, it's how you feel. Confidence is the sexiest thing a woman can have.

We are all human and get the munchies throughout the day. Those moments between breakfast and lunch and then again between lunch and dinner. So now I keep healthy snacks in my desk and in the fridge at work. Some of my favorite but simple things to bring are a strawberry/blueberry mix, peanut butter on rice cakes, NAKED juice, LUNA bars and organic granola bars. Here are some of the ones I keep in my desk at all times.
The important thing is to keep healthy, clean options around so you are less likely to grab something like chips or candy. If you keep these things around it makes it a lot easier to eat clean! I want to know what you keep on hand! Sound off below or tweet us your fav snacks!

So it's been a little over a month and I'm back. I'm sorry about skipping out and not keeping up with the posts. I want to blame it on something but honestly I just got lazy. I started getting lazy with my meals, workouts and posting habits. I kept up the workouts until about 2 weeks ago, It was my birthday week after all. There is nothing to worry about because I started again tonight after I got off work.
Since I last posted I had been doing bootcamp 4 times per week (Fit Body Bootcamp) they have locations world wide so check them out if you are looking for something to change up your workouts. It's an indoor bootcamp facility that has small group personal training. Tonight I hit up my regular gym (Lifetime) and did some cardo for about an hour. I felt amazing afterwards! I say all of this to preface that I'm still going through my transformation! I have great days & some days I'd rather not talk about, like last night but I'm not going to let myself get down about it. Today is another day and it's time to continue on.
I realized yesterday that I had began to eat out way to much. Even though my choices were healthier they still could be better. So after church instead of going out to lunch I came home and made a delicious fruit and green tea smoothie. It was the reminder I needed to start eating healthy again.
