Before the weekend I try to up my workout intensity, because I know when the weekend comes along, so does all the restaurant hopping. I decided to combine my weight training day with a circuit training routine to kick my butt in gear.

Nothing like a pre-weekend workout to get your juices flowing!
I HATE PUSHUPS!!! But oh how I would love to be good at them. I like to think I am pretty fit, but every time I do a pushup I lose all hope. If you look below you will see how horrible I am at pushups! Please excuse the beginning where my head is cut off.
I decided to push myself to do more pushups when I was reading a YumYucky post the other day. YumYucky said how she gets bummed out when people say they can’t do pushups, and I realized I need to stop making excuses and just DO THEM!
The first step I took was downloading an app from iTunes called Hundred Pushups . It is a 6 week program that helps you complete 100 consecutive pushups, that is suicide. Below are a few screenshots of that app.
I will track my progress and make sure to give nothing but my best! I thought I would say that since it sounds good and inspiring, but really, I am going to KILL it!
* Workout five times-Weights 3x Nike training 2x: NO/ Did Weights 3x Nike Training 1x * P90x Yoga (fingers crossed): I didn’t cross my fingers hard enough * Stretch after each workout: Blahhh * Track all seven days for Weight Watcher:SUCCESS
GOALS *Workout at least 4x (Getting ready for a big move) *Cook 5x *Track Weight Watchers all seven days *Finish packing for VIRGINIA!!!!!
What a body transformation! Ms. Jordin Sparks has recently lost 30 pounds this past year with the help of a personal trainer and a portioned control diet. In a recent bikini tweet pic she compared her suit to fruity pebbles, but I think she just wanted to show off her new Beyonce inspired body to the world, GO GIRL!
“I don’t know why but my bathing suit reminds me of fruity pebbles… Werk what we got.”
Previously Sparks was a model for Torrid, a plus sized line, before losing all her model weight. Sparks was proud of her body and felt that women should embrace their curves. She is definitely singing to a different tune now.
“I love food and I love my curves. I’m very strong-willed and I’m stubborn in that sense to where I’m just like ‘No, I won’t be that way,’” she said. “I definitely do like exercise. I like to eat right. It’s all about being healthy. The stick-thin thing, I’m kind of just like ‘Not gonna do it’ and ‘I couldn’t.’”
Just look at the boost in confidence in the above bikini picture. She is half naked, but she is letting you know that she worked her ass off, literally, and nothing can stop her now! The other picture shows a more modest Sparks, wearing a loose fitted shirt to cover her problem areas and giving a shy smile to the cameras.
Jordin Spark’s was beautiful before, but now she has the confidence and seems as though she on the right path to a healthy and fit lifestyle. Jordin Sparks you are officially Fit Fabulous and Famous!!!
I was NOT pleased with the amount of times I worked out this past week. When I try to remember why I skipped out on so many workouts nothing comes to mind :-/ I think for the most part I was lazy. I would wake up in the AM and nothing, I would just turn to my phone and reset my alarm until it was time for me to wake up and get ready for work. What do I do?!!!!!!! Easy, I make sure to go at least 4 times this week. Will it happen? I don’t know. What I do know is that I will try my best and get my ass in gear so I can make my goal.
Go to the gym at least 4 times this week
Do P90x Yoga at least one day
Stretch out after each workout
