New Toys!

polarfitYipppeeee! I just went on a shopping spreeee!

I’m getting new toys in the mail from Amazon, all thanks to the EBC for giving us bonus visa gift cards! We were super fortunate enough to receive $130 Visa Gift Cards for being with the company for over 6 months. Those who have been with the company for less than 6 months received $65. Soooo naturally I went on Amazon and looked up new workout toys and gear! I should be receiving my new fancy pink Polar Fit Watch, a cable cuff so I can build my booty, aaaaaaand 4 pounds of PB2 and Chocolate PB2! You can imagine the excitement……

Yesterday’s workout was killer! I did the ‘Derek Formula’ workout incorporating heavy lifting in the squat rack and murdering my whole body! Whewwww, still kills me every time! I was a lazy arse and slept in this morning…. booooo. Beginning to think I might need to switch up my workout schedule to evenings! Haha, no thanks. I’m going to the gym tonight to make up for it though. No excuses! Gotta get that sweat session in!

Today I plan on doing a booty building and ab circuit while incorporating jump roping for cardio. I’m going to see how busy the gym is today, but this is what I have written:

-4 minute treadmill warm up

Warm Up Circuit:

-10 Burpees
-10/10 Side Crunch
-20 Squat with Leg Lift x3

Full Set:

-2 minutes high knees jump rope
-25 Resistance Band Glute Bridges
-8-10-12 Barbell Squats
-8-10-12 Dead Lifts
-12/12 Dumbbell Split Squats x3

-2 minutes high knees jump rope
-15 Swiss Ball V Ups
-15/15 Swiss Ball Windshield Wipers
-15/15 Swiss Ball Oblique Raises x3

Lighter workout, definitely NOT the ‘Derek Formula’ (which I still can’t share, sorry, it’s my secret weapon!). Hoping to add some more weight on the squat rack! I’ve been getting stronger and stronger!

Guess who got their NPC Card in the mail?! This bitch did! Super exciiiiiiiited! Took a month to receive it, I’m glad I ordered it so far in advance. Still playing around with the idea of competing in Vancouver Natural, haven’t decided. Tough decision amongst tax season, paying off credit cards, student loans etc. Apparently spray tan application is over $100 per competition! Might not be able to afford it, but I really REALLY hope so! I’m dying for sponsorships, I would love to get paid or at least get discounts to promote my hobby. quest-bar-nutrition2

Last night I sent in an application and short biography to Quest! Unfortunately no professional pictures, but I let them know I would have some soon. I can’t wait to get my 2 free samples in the mail! I chose Peanut Butter and Strawberry Cheesecake, YUMMMM! I’ve been researching Fitness Expos in Seattle but there aren’t that many, if any at all. Most of the Fitness Expos are directed at hiking, running, and biking; which makes sense considering this IS the Great Pacific North West!

It’s a work in progress, very small humble beginnings 🙂

Excited for this weekend, Kaienna comes to visit and we’re going to take her over to Derek’s parents on Saturday since she hasn’t seen them since BEFORE Christmas. She’s growing up so fast, I’ll have to take plenty of pictures and post them this weekend. Last time she visited I was staring at her while she was standing next to Derek, my jaw dropped at how TALL she is, how long her hair is, how she is looking like a little human, saying words like, “Perhaps!” Geez, where has the time gone?! She’s so beautiful and smart, it’s incredible.

papaowlI miss Derek’s parents as well. I love spending time with them and being at their house. No matter how much stress I might be under, or what thoughts are going through my head, I am immediately calmed when I walk through the door. I find a lot of comfort there spending time with them, I wish we saw them more often. They are some of the greatest people I know 🙂

Anywho, I better start wrapping up the evening! Stay tuned for new recipes for next week! I’m stocking up at Costco and meal prepping on Sunday!
