Yesterday's randoms


Thank you for all the helpful comments and Facebook posts about workouts at home. I have so many ideas I can't wait to try them out. I actually did a suggested at home workout yesterday thanks to Christina! It was a "get off the couch workout" from Gourmet Runner and I made a little picture so I can remember to do it again...


I took Ernie on a 15 minute jog/power walk before doing this workout and was in a full sweat by the first round of squats. Ernie and I did a 10 minute walk to cool down after I finished and I feel like I got a great workout in! One thing to note, I don't workout my chest so I did tricep pushups instead of regular ones. I will post more when I try them! Lots of people suggested ToneItUp.com and Insanity so I am going to look into those.

Ernie was so weirded out when I was doing jumping jacks...


Last night I had the pleasure of going on a blate (blog date) with the beautiful and sweet Jenni from Story of My Life. Seriously, if you don't read her blog, stop reading mine and GO NOW!! We both laughed when we saw each other and said "you're short too!" We had such an amazing time catching up and even though it was the first time we'd met face to face, I felt as if we were old friends. We kept using the disclaimer "I am an oversharer!". It was such a fabulous night and I can't wait for lots more blates with Mrs. Jenni (and hopefully man dates with our hubbies!).

Our Salvadorian food (our waiter was sure to tell us it was NOT Mexican food)

Total bloggers with our Canons at the table

Do you have hair Jenni-envy yet?

I also wrapped Jon's anniversary present last night...I am getting giddy thinking about giving it to him in 3 days!!!!!


Jon has been gone all week for work and gets home tonight!! I've been super busy this week so it's flown by but I am excited. I felt like a wild child last night because I ended up going downtown with some co-workers to watch the band that 3 of our co-workers are in. I'd known about it for awhile but decided not to go when I found out Jon would be gone. Call me silly but I like having my hubby with me when I go out late at night. But after my awesome blog-date, I was in such a fun/happy mood and decided to go! It was really neat to see people I work with up on stage performing, they were so good and talented! 


Today I am pretty sore (120 squats!) and tired but yesterday was perfect and so worth it!

Glad you got so many great recommendations for workouts!!!

Jealous of the blate!! I love the men in the background of that last picture of you two together! Ha.

When I was doing P90X Jax thought I was playing with him when I would do jumping jacks or run around in a circle, etc....lol...boy would drive me nuts.

Faith said...

so awesome! i would love to meet Jenni so badly! lucky, lucky :)

looks like a fun time!

Liz Brown said...

That 'blate' looks like a lot of fun. I bet it was odd at first!

I've been thinking of trying home workouts like that. The one you tried looks do-able but challenging enough. I might play copycat ... :)

Jen said...

I'm SO jealous of your blog-date!
I love toneitup.com, I even splurged on their diet/lifestyle plan, which I have yet to actually put into use lol.. but once I do I know it'll be great!

Erin said...

Yesterday sounded like an awesome day! Love her blog...she is so sweet. :) You looked so pretty on your blate!

Amira said...

Oh, I LOVE her blog!!! I'm so jealous of your blate :-) I'm going to the So Cal bloggers meet-up this Saturday and I'm getting totally excited AND nervous!

Amanda said...

SOOO jealous of your blate with Jenni last night! Glad you two had fun! I have hair envy of her too (since my hair is stick straight like yours). And that picture of Ernie is too cute. I want to meet him (and you, but that's already in the works!).

Carolyn said...

EEK! Gotta love blates! :) I wish I could go on one!!! HAHA! That food looks SO YUMMY!

Good work on the workout!

Lauren said...

I wish all the awesome Texan bloggers were a tad bit closer to me... It seems like there are way less Okie bloggers :(

I love big dogs, but I love would a little Ernie, true story.

Yay for hubs coming home, and getting to give him his present!

Jane {In the Pink and Green} said...

I love this 100 workout and I'm definitely going to have to give it a try! I have some similar workouts on my fitness pin-board and did one last night...but my dog was totally going nuts too, it was hilarious! She was freaking out when I did jumping jacks and then she kept trying to lick my face anytime I did pushups/crunches. Also, so cool that you got to meet Jenni, I love her blog! xoxo

Karla said...

I have been trying to be consistent with my at home work outs! I did a 20 min one on Sunday and I was sore for two days. What keeps you motivated? I know once I come home from work all I want to do is cozy up on the sofa!
HAHA that waiter is funny.. that food looks sooo good .. too bad enchiladas are NOT a typical Salvadorian dish.. I should know I am half salvi lol

Leah {Sweet and Sour Showers} said...

I hate that they are called burpees! Where did you guys eat?

Jennifer said...

I started the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred yesterday and I can barely walk today! I feel your pain.

KRISTIN said...

good job on the workout! i am going to need to try that! bailey always watches me workout at home and i always tell her to do her "downward dog." i'm an idiot, i realize this. :)

Krista said...

I saw this workout once before but never attempted it...you go girl!

Lorraine said...

I just read "100 jumping jacks" and felt tired. ;)

I love blates! Bloggers really do make awesome company.

YAY! great recap of the blate... it was soooooooo fun. :) And I can't wait to hear about your hubby's reaction when he sees the gift!!! :P

Christina said...

I'm glad you got that workout in! It's a good one!

Meg said...

My dogs give me the weirdest looks when I work out at home! It is so funny.

What a fun blog date, your food sounds super yummy.

I cannot wait to hear what you got your hubby for your anni. So exciting.

Kristin said...

Ernie is too cute!!

Girls Love Fried Pickles said...

You guys look too cute! Last month or so I pinned a workout on my pinterest that had burpees in it. I had to look it up. I was like why do I need to burp after I workout? A blond moment at its best.

Amanda C. said...

Wow, that is quite the workout. I guess jumping jacks do look pretty awkward. ha ha

Katie {katie lately} said...

Wow that looks like an awesome workout for home! I just might have to do it myself :)
