The New Job Fashion Overview

Since I was relocating to Virginia I had to find a new job right away. After actively searching  while in Virginia, a week later I received two offers in one day, SCORE!!! I was so happy to receive two offers and I just wanted to make sure I was making the right decision.

Fast forward to today, and I am going on day two of my new job. I’m sure I made the right decision and I can’t wait for all the new things I am going to learn while I am there. Below are some pics of my work outfits for the first couple of days.

Day 2 Outfit

Let’s see what the rest of the week will bring us

LabRat Challenge: The Pushup

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!

Wish me luck!!!

Who wants to do the challenge with me?!

Strong and Beautiful Campaign

“What are little girls made of?”  The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) just launched their “Strong and Beautiful” campaign with this amazing video featuring womens tennis top ranked athletes.

Featured players: Sam Stosur, Ana Ivanovic, Li Na, Caroline Wozniacki, Vera Zvonareva, Serena Williams, Victoria Azarenka & Kim Clijsters.


The video is so simple and powerful and shows the many sides of women through the use of sugar and spice. All women are a concoction  of these two ingredients and it’s what makes us fabulous!  I loved seeing how powerful and strong these women were and how the video shows their beauty and athleticism, makes me want to play tennis again!

Fitness Recap 5.2-5.8


5.1-5.7 Goals
Go to the gym at least 4 times this week: FAILED  (It was that time of the month and it was hard to get motivated to do anything)
Do P90x Yoga at least one day: FAILED
Stretch out after each workout: DONE!!!! YAYA!!!

Nutrition was not a goal for this week, however for this week it is going to be a major focus. I had a few days off from work and I took full advantage of the dinner dates with my hubby. We went out to eat Thursday, Friday, Saturday and had a huge brunch Sunday for Mothers Day. As you can see I did not say night after each day because we pretty much ate out for all meals except breakfast, UGH!

So what are my goals for this upcoming week?

5.8-5.14 Goals
Go to the gym at least 5 times this week
Eat clean (eat out one night and no cheating during week (cheating is random eating and nibbling on sweets)
Stretch out after each workout
P90x Yoga
Weights 3x this week & Nike Training 2x this week + cardio all five days

What are your goals this week?

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.

5.1-5.7 Goals
Go to the gym at least 4 times this week
Do P90x Yoga at least one day
Stretch out after each workout

Wish me luck!
