“Double” Date and Shadow Boxing

Hellooooo again- fancy seeing you here. 😉

I’m going to keep today’s post short and sweet- tonight is a very busy night. I’m heading over to Shane’s house in about 10 minutes to get our workout on. We met for lunch today, and when I found out he was attempting to do a double tonight, I was all in.

Err…I was in. Mostly because I sort of have a feeling we won’t be doing a double. 1 P90x workout is hard enough- but 2? 

Get outta town.

(It was a whole hilarious exchange, ending in Shane looking at me and saying “Please, don’t post that on the blog…”

Don’t worry, sweet pea, I won’t. 😉 )

Still, I’m excited either way because A) one of the workouts is an old p90 favorite of mine:

and B) the other is Chest and Back-and I was supposed to work chest today anyway.

Perfection, if you ask me!

It also happens to be the night we’re celebrating our brother-in-law’s birthday, so we have that right after our attempted double, which means I get to see my future in-laws, sisters, brother-in-law’s AND all my sweet nieces and nephews tonight!

So, hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to give you guys that P90X workout review I’ve been wanting to do tomorrow!

For now, I’ll leave you with this new workout- I’m a huge fan of kickboxing and tae bo, and this is a kickboxing workout you can do anywhere!

You’ll notice there’s no “rest” period here- that because some of these moves are active rest moves, and are designed to help you catch your breath while you’re still moving.

Well, it’s about time I make like Tony Horton and BRING IT!

Catch ya later!

A.M. Dates and “Proat-meal”

This morning, I had a date with an old friend.

Unfortunately, I stood my date up.

My bed was just feeling too darn comfy to leave it! And getting up anywhere between the 5am – 6am window can just feel downright horrific some days.

So I gave myself permission to sleep in (I had done all breakfast prep work the night before) and didn’t get up until 7:15. Of course, then I was rushed to get ready, didn’t have time for a cup of coffee and ran out of gas on my way into work.


However– like I said, I managed to do most breakfast prep last night, so all I had to do was open up my container once I got to work and stir. Also luckily, there is a coffee pot here at the office and I was able to brew up a whole batch of fresh coffee as soon as I got here this morning.

Hello, gorgeous….

In other news, breakfast this morning came in the form of overnight pumpkin “proatmeal”, complete with half a banana and extra almond milk on top.

—See that massive cup? Shane bought this for me last year. It’s amazing. Oh, and you can definitely double the amount of coffee you see here.

In today’s oats:

-1/2 cup oats

-1/2 cup almond milk

-1 tbs. peanut butter

-1 tbs. agave

-1/4 of a scoop of VCORE vanilla bean protein powder

-1 1/2 tbs. pumpkin puree

Guys- I know they aren’t pretty. But they taste DELICIOUS.

In other news, I’m hoping to head straight to the gym after work today. I have to train arms and shoulders, and since the gym closes early on Fridays (6pm), I planned accordingly and have my handy dandy gym bag all set and ready to go out in the car.

gym bag orange sneakers—–I have a deep love of brightly colored workout shoes.

I also have this thing in my head where at some point, I plan on having a pair of workout shoes from every brand. So far, I have Nike, Asics, Reebok and Adidas covered. Next on the horizon- some pr-etty snazzy POLO tennis shoes I found online.

Hopefully I can snag them up before the “free shipping” promise goes away! 😉
