I admit it, I haven't exercised in a week. I feel awful about it but I was just feeling down on myself because I'm not where I should of been in my weight loss journey/plan, but it's 100% my fault. I wasn't counting calories like I was in the beginning, and I started to have some wine a few times a week. Yuck. But luckily I haven't gained any weight, but I haven't lost any either.

I'm not going to be hard on myself about it, that will just make it worse. I'm just telling myself that it happens, I'm not perfect, and I'm moving on :) June 1st starts a new Brazil Butt Lift contest called something like "Best Booty on the Beach", and that's a great motivation. I always feel like I need some sort of concrete goal. So today I'm doing Bum Bum and taking my before pictures again. But this time I'm doing it in a bikini. EEEEEK. That way I will be able to see the changes in myself better then what I wore before. I'm going to try to take them by myself, I would be way to embarrassed to have my husband take my picture lol.

I also think breaking up my workouts will help. Today is Bum Bum and Tummy Tuck, and I never have enough time to do both PLUS take a shower before Zach wakes up so I feel to rushed and anxious. I'm strange, I know lol. So I'll do Bum Bum while Zach is sleeping, shower then later when they are out back or when Craig comes home from work I'll do Tummy Tuck.

Here has been some motivation for me lately:

I've  been doing Turbo Fire the past 2 weeks and I LOVE it. I'm seriously getting addicted to it. Even Ethan sings the songs from it. He goes "Mama! Who's house my house?" and goes "What's that from?" already playing trivia lol.

I went to a birthday party on Saturday and I was going to wear jeans, a tank and a cute lightweight short sleeved sweater thing (super super light weight) but I knew it was going to be at least 90 degrees and I'd die in that outfit. But I dont have much clothes that fit me right now, so I tried on a skirt that usually is to tight for me...and IT FIT. So I wore that and a tank and I was surprised how much smaller I'm looking in pictures.

I should of already lost more weight, but it's hard to give up my wine after a long stressful day :) My diet isn't to bad, but I think I still need to check out my portions. I'm going to try measuring my food for a week to REALLY see portion sizes and I bet that will be a nice dose of reality lol.

There is another Jean Queen contest from Brazil Butt Lift starting June 1st! I heard this time they are giving a prize to anyone who submits there day 1/30/60 pictures! That's awesome. I will definitely be doing it again, but more of a Turbo Fire Brazil Butt Lift hybrid. Basically I'll be making sure to do 3 days of HIIT and 3 days of BBL High & Tight. I'll figure out the rest, but my body seems to really love those 2 types of workouts.

I'm off to DMV now then I have a date with Chalene Johnson :)

Mocha Greenberry

Just a quick post before I go pick Ethan up from preschool. Zach slept the WHOLE time Ethan was at school so I got to workout (Turbo Fire HIIT 15, Sculpt 30), have some Shakeology and relax by myself for a bit. It's nice :) I SHOULD have been cleaning, but I like this better :P

I bought Chalene Johnson's (creater or Turbo Fire) book PUSH yesterday and I'm really loving it so far. So motivational.

I have a recipe for Mocha Greenberry! Stay with me here, really. It's gooood. I'm not the biggest fan of Greenberry (gogo chocolate!), so this was created on a whim because I was out of my sugar free vanilla pudding mix to make the Shamrock Shakeology. It tastes chocolatey without being TO chocolatey. If I drank this and did not know it was Greenberry, I would have no idea that it wasen't straight chocolate.

Or my allergies (or cold, who knows) is affecting my judgement lol.

I'll upload a picture of the green colored swampy goodness as soon as I find my usb cable.

Mocha Greenberry Shakeology

- 1 scoop (or packet) Greenberry
- 1 cup water (or if you like it thick, do  1/2 water)
- 1/2 cup any type of milk
- Small banana or 1/2 a big one
- 2 TBS sugar free instant chocolate pudding
- 1 TBS instant espresso powder
- 1 tbs peanut butter (I used Better n Peanut  Butter) you don't taste the peanut butter, it just cuts down on the Greenberry flavor in my experience.
