Yesterdays workout kicked my butt I LOVED IT!
It definitely helped that Jeffrey ran with me.
I was lacking motivation to go alone...
But not today people!
This is just a general bodyweight workout, and good for me because I have limited time!
Let's get active today!

Lately I have been noticing something...
There are ALLOT of us "healthy lifestyle" or "diet" bloggers out there, but not allot of link parties to promote ourselves and grow as an online community!
After allot of thinking I have decided to announce I am officially hosting
A link party for bloggers to share Healthy Recipes, Tips, Exercises, Success Stories...
Basically anything related to the topics of:
Health, Healthy Living, Dieting, Weight loss, & Exercise
I'm SO EXCITED!
Anyways, Here is what I ate today:
Today I am STRUGGLING to motivate myself to workout.
Has this ever happened to you?
I have no good reason to be so un-motivated today.
I'm not sore
I'm not sick
I have PLENTY of time
and yet all I want to do is curl up in my bed to take a nap!!!
Instead I am going to try and push myself, to at least be active today!
The hardest part of this workout for me will be getting up and DOING it.
How do you usually conquer lack of motivation?

Today was an interesting day!
The whole day was full of surprises...Some good and some not so good.
Let's just say it was one of the days where I looked at the clock at work thinking hours had gone by...
and in reality only fifteen minutes had passed.
Here is what I ate today:
(no this is not paleo) I cheated hehe
This was one of my GOOD surprises from today!
Jeff bought me flowers :)
That's all for today

Sunday is BACON DAY!!!
a.k.a I found out Bacon had tons of nitrate in it (cancer causing things?) That are apparently very bad for you.
So I vowed that I would only eat bacon on Sunday.
Hence - Bacon Day!
Coco Roasted Almonds, my new obsession!
After these two snacks I was pretty full for most of the day.
And also I knew ahead of time that dinner would be served early and I guess I didn't end up eating lunch!!
Which is OKAY with me because dinner tonight was not Paleo one bit.
I don't have pics because I was at dinner with my boyfriends parents and they had company over...
I thought it might be rude to whip out my phone and start giving my plate a photo shoot, right???
So for dinner (obviously unpictured) was:
1 Bread roll
& Snickers Pie Dessert (naughty)
All in all, a very non paleo dinner.
(and also a random selection of food?)
But you know what, sometimes there are going to be instances where I am not always going to have a Paleo option!
This week was another great week!
I'm finally getting back into the groove of college after summer break, and I'm so happy that I am able to be much HEALTHIER than I was at this time last year!
Today I weighed in at 151!!!!
I lost another pound!!!!!
I am so ready to be out of the 150's!!!!!!!
This puts me at a total of six pounds lost in 9 weeks!
I hope everyone has an amazing and relaxing Sunday, I will be Studying away!

My workout today was a MAJOR disappointment.
Usually on Saturdays there is an AMAZING Zumba instructor who's class is VERY hard and keeps me in high level cardio the whole hour... aka me panting and sweating really pathetically.
Today however, a Male instructor was substituting the Zumba class.
At first I was like hey, cool a dude is teaching Zumba!
Then the music started and the dancing was lame...and slow..and I was NOT sweating or huffing and puffing...
I think the only thing I was doing was feeling ridiculous for copying his moves!
I ended up leaving the class 30 minutes early in hopes of getting a better cardio workout on the elliptical.
Which I did.
Do you ever attend a gym class and feel like you want to leave because you don't like the instructor?
Anyways, here is what I ate today:
2 eggs scrambled
& Veggie Platter
I went to a BBQ for Dinner and had DELICIOUS Turkey steak, Brocolli Salad and Watermelon.
I said no to the delicious smelling homeade rolls AND the snickers ice cream pie.
It wasn't even HARD I didn't crave them at all!
Unfortunately I suffered from stomach issues all night.... does eating too much broccoli screw up your digestive system??!!!!!
