What’s Up, Wednesday?

I haven’t been posting very much! I’m going to start posting whatever is on my mind on Wednesday’s. So, what’s up, Wednesday?

  • I went to Vegas last month for Arbonne’s GTC. I learned so much about the company and products and made tons of new friends. It was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to ramp up my business and return next year!
    Two weeks ago today, my darling husband officially adopted Joshua! It was such a special day and we had a kick ass bbq this past weekend for Father’s Day.
    Speaking of Father’s, yesterday marked 7 years since I lost mine to cancer. It doesn’t get any easier. I miss him every day.
    I’ve been feeling like crap this week. It’s like all my health issues are battling each other for the top. Migraine, hypoglycemia and low heart rate all at once. Just blah.

That’s all for this Wednesday! See you next week!

Vegas, baby!

This time next week, I’ll be at the airport with my girlfriends waiting to board our flight to Las Vegas!  I’m so excited!  We are going to Vegas for the Arbonne GTC.  I can’t wait to see all of the new products being launched and learning some new share tactics.  What I’m MOST excited about, besides girl time, is seeing RACHEL HOLLIS!!!  I’m totally obsessed with her and cannot WAIT to listen to her live.  I’m totally fan-girling!!

I’ve been to Vegas once before on a girls trip, and I broke my foot the very first day on a walk down the strip.  It’s really hard to get around vegas when you can’t walk!

We’re staying at the Park MGM.  Any suggestion on where to eat or things to do in our free time??  Tell me, tell me, tell me!!

Friday Fitness Review 4/12

Hey y’all!  It’s Finally Friday!!!  It’s been a busy week and I can’t wait to relax this weekend!  Maybe… It’s been a rough month or two for exercise.  Between hypoglycemia and my weird dizzy spells, I’d get maybe 1 workout in a week and sometimes none.  I decided this week to push through and I’ve done doubles all week.  I didn’t mean to start that, but it’s been so nice here that I’ve been taking lunchtime walks and then evening walks with hubs.  This is what my week looked like, how did you move your body??

Monday: Lunchtime walk and evening walk with Aaron.  Total 4.58 miles

Tuesday: Lunchtime walk 2.98 miles and evening walk 1.5 miles

Wednesday: Lunchtime walk 1.7 miles with a huge hill and evening walk 2.2 miles

Thursday: Lunchtime Cardio at YMCA and 5:30pm Body Pump

Friday: YMCA after work for a mix of cardio and strength.

Saturday: 8:30am Spin and 9:45am Combat

Sunday: Outside Walk with hubs

Absence makes the heart grow fonder

Have you ever had a period of days or weeks where everything seems to go wrong?  That explains my last few weeks.  I’ve been having some weird health stuff.  Hypoglycemia and migraines.  The loss of my grandfather.  I’ve been letting these set backs hold me back from reaching my health goals.  I haven’t been meal planning or going to the gym.  It’s hard to go to the gym when your head and face are aching.  I’m hoping to feel better soon, so I can get back to kicking butt!

What do you do when you’ve lost motivation?  I need a pep talk!!

Weekly Menu Planning 2/4

IMG_1351

Happy Monday!  We had a super busy weekend, starting out with a couples workout.  Aaron and I never work out at the gym together, but our time aligned on Saturday morning and we hit the Y together.  We followed that up with car shopping for my niece, a BJ’s trip and grocery shopping.  Plus I snuck out for brunch with my girlfriends.  Yesterday I met one of my besties at the gym for a workout and then picked up my boy for the day to watch the super bowl.  Lovely weekend, although I could use a rest day today.  😉

I made a huge pot of taco chili for lunches for the week and our weekly batch of protein muffins for breakfast.  We’ll have veggies and hummus for snacks and brown rice crackers.

Here’s what we are eating for dinners this week:

Monday: Taco’s with refried beans and veggies

Tuesday: Chicken and broccoli alfredo over brown rice pasta with salad

Wednesday: Chicken sandwiches with roasted carrots and potatoes

Thursday: Chicken enchiladas with rice

Friday: Leftovers or dinner out

 

It should be another busy week, since I’ll be back at the gym.  It’s been a rough couple of weeks with vertigo and migraines.  I have an ENT appointment today to hopefully get some answers.  It sucks when you actually WANT to go to the gym and work out and your body has other ideas.  This explains why there hasn’t been a Friday Fitness Review posted in two weeks…did you notice?  LOL!

So tell me, what are YOU eating this week?  Take a minute and comment below!  I need some inspiration for future weeks!
