The Places I have Been

Last two weeks I slacked off. I went from averaging working out 5-6 days a week to a mere 2x a week if at all. I'd like to blame it on impromptu company that I had in town. But still I know I could have done better. So why beat myself up over spilled milk? considering I played tour guide to my company meaning we did a lot of running around in Hollywood, Venice Beach, Santa Monica Pier, DTLA and at a winery. However, we literally ate out everyday and I indulged in some yummy delicacies and harbor no regrets. I still drunk copious amounts of water and ate lots of fresh fruit.

This week I plan on alternating between runs/power walks and Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred Level 3. I just ordered Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30. It comes with a meal plan which I plan on following for maximum results.

To anyone in the East Coast I have had you in my thoughts and prayers for safety from #HurricaneSandy.

Hydrating in the Fall

Does anyone else find it a tad harder to hydrate during the Fall/Winter? well I do. I guess its the cold weather and the lack of sweating as compared to the Summer/Spring. The more I hydrate in the Fall/Winter the more am constantly glued to the porcelain queen, constantly peeing. Also,  cold weather makes me long for something hot and cozy so I succumb to endless cuppa teas. Still I manage to get my water down but not without a struggle that's for sure.

I've been working out at least 4x-5x a week lately and am so proud of myself. I'm still doing Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred Level 3 and getting that much better at all the circuits. I actually look forward to my workout sessions.

The S.O. and I have eaten out a few times lately but I have made healthy choices like brown rice over white and substituted fries for mixed vegetables/fruit. My aim is to make lifetime changes. I don't want instant gratification. I'm striving to make changes that I will hold onto for the rest of my life. I know it won't be easy but I can only do my best one day at a time. And I'm content with that :)

This week I'm hoping to incorporate more hiking into my workout regimen. Now that I'm done with the 30 Day Shred I read some reviews on Amazon and I think I'll do Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 next.

I'm still doing fruit bowls for dinner and my big meal is Lunch mostly fish, veggiez and a carb of my choice. My bloating has remarkably declined. Phew. And of course the infamous unloaded oatmeal for breakfast or a bowl of cereal.

Finally, thank goodness its been cool in SoCal this week. I'm talking mid to high 70s and at night it even drops to high 50s/low 60s. I had to pull my winter blanket out of the linen closet. Pure bliss. I even rocked my military boots last night HAHA I'm such a Fall junkie. 

'Til next time my lovelies!!!
