Workout, Eating, Sunglasses, And Whatnot!

I completed Day 2 of Asylum - Strength. It was pretty hard, but I felt good about what I accomplished. My body is a hurtin' right now too. My chest area and thighes are the ones in most pain...but I will push through! Earlier in the week I had planned on jogging this morning, but that didn't happen due to the amount of soreness in my legs. I thought I'd just take it easy...maybe I'll jog tomorrow morning.

And today's eating has not been very good...I just fell off the wagon and ate 2 pieces of Domino's pizza and drank a Big Red.  I don't think it's going to hinder me, but I'm getting back on the wagon ASAP. I've been extremely hungry this week and I just caved in. It happens to us all...then we just move on!

So I wanted to chat about my newest sunglasses that I'm totally lovin'. Yeah, I may have gotten them back in April but they're still my newest pair...they are the Oakley MISS CONDUCT.

This picture depicts the actual ones I have...Brown Sugar! And they come in 3 other colors that I really love. So, why I am I talking about these?! They are the most light weight sunglasses I have ever owned. They are great for when you go for a run, biking, playing sports, etc AND they are stylish too! These babies are so lightweight that I'm still scared that I'll break them if I don't put them in the carrying case that you get when you purchase them.

From the Oakley website: For the athlete who demands performance and plays by her own rules, Oakley offers up the audacious MISS CONDUCT™. These rimless toric shield glasses not only look cool— they truly shield you from the elements. MISS CONDUCT is so incredibly lightweight, it won’t even slow you down for a millisecond.

As for my workout today...looks like I'll be doing a core video. Wish me luck!


Today's Shakeology Recipe:

1 packet of Chocolate Shakeology
1 cup of Almond Breeze Unsweetened Original Almond Milk
1 Tbsp of Smart Balance Chunky Peanut Butter

Blend that baby up in your blender until desired consistancy. I like mine kind of slushy so I have to use a bit of ice! ENJOY!

Insanity: The Asylum FINALLY ARRIVED!

So, it arrived on Monday - YIPPEE! I went home ready to take on the challenge of the fitness test and the Day 1 workout. WELL, let's just say that didn't happen. I did the fitness test and that's about it. Man, in the 25 minutes it took for the test I burned 295 calories and was exhausted. BUT that is how Shaun T brings it, right?!

Yesterday, I did the Day 1 scheduled workout for agility and speed. My left side of my body is SOOO not coordinated. I seriously had a hard time getting it to function properly. I don't know how many times I said "What tha HELL!" - ahaha!

Anyhoo...I survived! I feel like I can only get better from here. Today's workout is strength so we'll see how I stand up to that one!

OH and I almost forgot to mention that my hubby took the fitness test last night and he did the Day 1 workout during his lunch today. I'm so proud of him! It was definitely a struggle for him and he's a very active and fit guy.

I must say that I REALLY like Shaun T! Now I'm a girl who only has ever bought workout DVDs by other women. I'm a female so I figured it only right to get workouts done by other females. WELL...Mr. Shaun T has really won me over. I already feel like an athlete after one workout...but this athlete has a ways to go. I probably should have started out with Insanity, but its too late I've already gotten Asylum and I'm sticking with it. Once my 30 days is complete though...watch out cause I'm going to order Insanity and do the 30 day hybrid workout!! This sista is going to be bangin' for her birthday in November and for Christmas and for New Year's. Are you going to be bangin'?!

Join me on my journey to health and fitness...

I'm still moving along from the excitement of just ordering my copy of Insanity: The Asylum yesterday. I want it now! Can it please ship already?!

I want to start it ASAP to see the awesome results before we leave for our family vacation next month. Maybe I can take it with me while we are in Florida - I wouldn't want to mess up my progress with 2 weeks of vacation.

So are you with me? Are you brave enough to conquer this 30 day program and become the athlete you've always wanted to be OR become an even better athlete than you are today. Order your copy at www.beachbodycoach.com/stephalaniz!

You make the decision!

I'll post my before and after pics as well. I'll also blog about my progress and experience during the program.

Wish me luck...I'll need it!
