Muffin Top No More: Day 3

Day 3: Muffin Top No More

Run: 5.00 Miles in 56:04 minutes 🙂

100 push ups (modified)

100 reverse sit ups

4 minute planks

100 (4 count) flutter kicks

This is my “muffin top no more” challenge because I want my flat pre-babies tummy back. I am sure this is a major concern for many mommies. This challenge is open to anyone who wants to try something different. You don’t have to run 5 miles everyday but you can walk up to 10,000 steps a day. We can encourage each other by posting about our workouts everyday.

Thank you for stopping by 🙂 I am looking forward to seeing how the next 30 days are going to effect my overall health and waistline.

Here is a break down of how I usually workout.

I usually do the run first before tackling the stuff below because I might talk myself out the run if it is the last thing on my to do list.

25 push ups (4 times) –These are modified push-ups and by that it means that my knees were bent because my current fitness level can’t handle regular push ups just yet.

25 reverse sit ups (4 times) – I hate regular sit ups because they hurt my neck I refuse to do them.

25 (4 count) flutter kicks (4 times) – I love flutter kicks 🙂

1 minute planks (4 times)- I seriously hate planks but they are very effective, when done correctly.

For anyone wanting to join this challenge please consult with your doctor or doctors first because you don’t want to do something that you could potentially hurt you. My doctors know that I love to workout and I keep them informed of any major changes for my own good.

** Today’s workout was especially hard because I didn’t get enough sleep last night but I am so glad that I pushed myself to get it done.**

Once again, I thank you for stopping by 🙂

Dinner for One

Dinner for One

Coming up with a second me date idea wasn’t very difficult for several reasons. You will see why I say that it wasn’t difficult to come up with this idea as you read about it.

As most moms will tell you, eating any meal with our children can be very challenging. I am one of those moms, I rarely sit through a meal without having to remind with my kids to please eat their meal.

I decided to do something nice for myself this weekend, while the kids were visiting their dad. I planned out and cooked a yummy meal, got dressed up and enjoyed a quiet meal alone. The thought of eating alone might seem odd to some but to me it was nice being able to actually eat my meal without interruptions.

I even took pictures of the food I had because I loved how it all came out. I even made a dessert and drank some non-alcoholic grape juice (I gave up alcohol years ago). I was kind of worried about the whole not having anyone to talk to during dinner, so I turned on my Josh Groban radio station on Pandora to cover the lack of sound in the dining room.

So, what did I learn from this experience? I actually learned a few things about myself, the first being that I am starting to like the idea of treating myself better. In the past, I would feel guilty for taking some time just for me. The best part of the dinner for me was that I successfully made an apple soufflé and it came out great :-).

After dinner, I went upstairs and changed into my cowboys pajamas (preparing for tonight’s game against the dead-skins). I pulled out three Hugh Grant movies to watch, and they were “Love Actually”, Notting Hill” and Bridget Jones Diary 2″. The decision was very difficult since I am a big fan of Hugh Grant but I had to go with “Love Actually” because it also has Andrew Lincoln in it.

I didn’t finish watching the movie though because a friend called and we had one of those nice long conversations that was really needed and then I went to bed without cleaning the sink. The OCD side of me was very mad about the dishes but the rebel side of me was like, screw it go to bed they will be there when you wake up.

I will post recipes from my “epic” dinner for one date later during the week.

Thank you for stopping by 🙂
