Did this week just fly by or was it just me? Either way I am ready for the weekend.
After so many weekends of traveling and entertaining I am ready for a low key weekend at home. Bring on the pajamas and couch – I’m ready for it!
Last Friday I had the pleasure of joining Dori and Missy for my first Core Fusion class in NYC. The class was a challenge and worked almost every muscle in my body. The next day I was sore, but in a good way.
While I was in NYC Dori was kind enough to gift me the Core Fusion Body Sculpt DVD so that I could continue to take a class at home. (Thanks again Dori!)
This morning I popped the 50 minute DVD in and got my body sculpting on.
The DVD was brutal, but not as brutal in the class. I missed having the instructor from the class pushing me to do the more advance moves and to hold the pose for just a couple of seconds longer. I felt like the DVD was very relaxed and too soothing. With no one to push me I was more inclined to take breaks and drop down to the easier version of the exercises.
However, I do feel like this DVD is still a great challenge. I just need to work on my effort and focus with the movements in the future. The moves really are difficult and its easy to just let your mind give up. The trick is to be your own instructor and tell yourself to hold on for just a little bit longer.
Rachel from Shedding it and Getting it (Love her blog by the way!) recently completed a Core Fusion Challenge of her own. She set a goal of completing 16 sessions of the DVD in 4 weeks and had great results that you can read about by clicking here.
I see a similar challenge coming up in my future. Perhaps in time for the upcoming bikini season?
Breakfast was a big bowl of cereal.
Someone had commented the other day about how I ignore the serving size suggestion on the box and making big bowls of cereal. Well, that’s not entirely true, I do take the serving size in to consideration, but most of the cereals I eat are pretty low in calories and a serving size of Kashi Honey Sunshine (3/4 cup = 100 calories) isn’t going to put a dent in my hunger.
So, I mix the cereals up and combine 1/2 a serving of a few different kinds to get a decent size bowl that will hold me over longer than thirty minutes. Cereal is the one thing I use measuring cups with just to make sure I am getting the proper serving amounts in my bowl. I tend to either go under or overboard with cereal.
Today’s bowl contained
- 1/2 cup Kashi Honey Sunshine
- 1/2 cup Kashi Go Lean
- 1/4 cup Homemade Granola
- One Lucky Duck Chocolate Crispies
- Plain Yogurt
- Crofter’s South America Superfruit Spread
The Crofter’s South America Superfruit Spread is the second jar I’ve opened in the shipment the company sent me a couple of weeks ago to review.
The spread was chunky, thick, and a great add-in to my cereal this morning. Another superfruit spread winner.
Girlfriend Getaway Orlando…
Back in January I saw a commercial for a contest that was seeking Orlando area bloggers and tweeters to drive a 2010 Chevrolet Traverse for the month of March. Not thinking much of it I got online and entered for a chance to win. Last week I got the call – I had won!
Not only will we be driving the 2010 Traverse for the month of March, but Chevrolet will be covering all gas expenses and have set up some cool promotional deals along the way (like free massages)!
I’ve already planned a few road trips in my new Traverse – hello Tampa and Miami! – and am really excited to have an SUV that I can easily get my bicycle in and out of! Maybe this will inspire me to go on more rides?
