In addition to my donut pan that I recieved in the mail – I recieved this dvd!

I am a workout dvd junkie but lately I have been at a plateau and was searching for a dvd that would really work-me-out! So ok…wooo I am out of breath just thinking about the first time I tried this dvd. After a few days of being under the weather I was determined to work out – seriously -I was huffing and puffing after 20 minutes…dripping in sweat…I told myself that it must have been that I took a few days off from working out. Who I am kidding! This workout is no joke.

The great thing about this dvd is that it is broken down into sections – so if you are short on time or like to switch your routine up – there are lots of options. The dvd is 75 minutes in total.

Warm-up 5 minutes
Cardio Camp 28 minutes
Chisel Camp 25 minutes
Ab Camp 9 minutes
Stretch Camp 8 minutes

My progress…

1st try – Warm up, 1/2 of Cardio Camp, and Stretch

2nd try – Warm up, Cardio Camp (all of it, yay!) and Stretch

3rd try – I haven’t gotten here yet! I just got the dvd ya’ll!

I have two other of Ms. Jenkins dvds but I think I will stick with this one for a few weeks and see if my plateau lifts.  Pray for me:)


New Kicks

19 Mar

I was looking for a lighter workout shoe but it still needed to have support! I ordered these from DSW and they are soooooo comfy! I did a BodyPump workout today in these … which by the way I needed really bad after my indulgence in chocolate chip cookies this weekend:/  

I wonder… why I haven’t I looked for this type of shoe before?  I am not really in to brand names but I hear that Ryka is pretty good? I will let you know if they are in a few weeks if I still think they are as great. The best part is that they were on clearance, oh yeah! I love a sale. Can’t wait to try to Zumba class in these and during my walk for the March of Dimes!

What is your favorite workout shoe?

About Me

11 Mar

I love God… and HE made me QUIET for a reason that I am unsure of. I don’t question it but others sure do. Maybe it was to make me a great listener. After all we all have two ears and one mouth right? I am an introvert that likes to act like an extrovert at times. I internalize everything. When I am feeling stressed I clean, cook (and emotionally eat) and work-it-out. I have insomnia. I love coupons. I am creative. I dislike smoking, constant complaining and bad customer service. I have a cosmetology license and a MBA that took a lot of effort and student loans to get but I work a desk job that reflects none of the above. I love my Baltimore Ravens. I am a licensed Zumba instructor and would like open a bakery. I love my Sorors of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated. I like to read. I do not like peanut butter. Things that makes me happy… traveling, listening to music and dancing around – singing to myself or experimenting in the kitchen with some new recipes. Anything else you wanna know??

I just hope this blog allows me to share the things that make me happy!
