Sunday Funday!

Hello everyone!  I just got back from a really fun weekend visiting my college roommate in San Diego.  We went out to the Gas Lamp and had great dinner and drinks last night and caught up on our lives.  Today was so gorgeous out, we went to La Jolla and had brunch there.  Check out this picture I took!  I really like my iphone's camera... hahaha.

It was 70 degrees out and sunny.  So nice to be in Southern California sometimes!  San Diego is only about 2 hours from LA, so I got home a little while ago.  Time for a relaxing night or some TV, yummy dinner, and of course Sunday Funday post!

So as I mentioned last week, I have decided to be very strict with my food and workout this week and next week.  I've really been eating very well!  Including last night when I went out, even the drink I ordered was just cumcumber gin and soda, which is like 100 calories.  But I did workout like crazy before I headed out to San Diego, so I feel like I had 100 calories to spare.  Anyway, this has really been paying off, because I'm feeling better than ever, my clothes are fitting looser, I can see more ab and arm definition, and the scale shows that I'm 5 lbs lighter than a week ago.  

I'm supposed to do a detox for a few days next week, so we'll see if that will make me feel even better.  I swear ever since I got back from China, I had not been feeling the same because of all the crap I ate during my trip!  So I'm very happy that I've now lost it all after only a short week.  

One of my friends started to train for a bikini bodybuilding competition, and she's got me kind of interested too, so I'm supposed to talk to her trainer some time next week and see if this is something I can pursue!  I don't know about doing an actual competition though, but I'd be down to train and eat like one just to see what it's all about.  I think it would feel like a great accomplishment, and it's something I've always kind of considered.

Anyways, so I went to workout 6 times this week!  I'm happy I pushed through, because the original plan was 5-6 times, and I almost called it off on Friday when I felt very tired after work.  But I didn't, and I felt loads better after my workout, so it was totally the right decision.

Monday 2/18
What I did:  Weights - I'm taking a break from the New Rules of Lifting for Abs, and started doing some other body parts on my own.  I also included a good amount of HIIT on the treadmill.  So I did five 1-minute sprints, then lifted 2 alternating body parts.  Then went back to the treadmill to do five more 1-minute sprints on very high incline (15), and then did another 2 sets of alternating weights.  It was such a killer!

As to/from, I wore my Turn Around LS in plum.

Tuesday 2/19
What I did:  Weights again, this time I did sprints before lifting, 50 burpees between weight sets, and 50 burpees after to finish it off.  Death!

What I wore:  Basically Monday's outfit in different colors lol.  Lululemon swiftly tank in fruitie tootie, with astro wunder under crops in black slub denim and Adidas adizero adios 2 shoes.

It was pretty chilly on Tuesday evening, so I wore my Dance Studio pants in concord grape, and my Journey Jacket.  I don't know why I took 2 different pictures, but here they are:

Wednesday 2/20
What I did:  Yoga class... still had sore upper arms the next day!  Why does yoga always get me like that??  Can't be a bad thing.

What I wore:  Lululemon Scoop Me Up tank in caspian blue (why haven't I seen more of this tank?  I love it and want more colors in it...) with deep indigo Ebb & Flow crops.

I wore Don't Hurry Be Happy pullover in polar cream to class because it was a very chilly night!

Thursday 2/21
What I did:  Spin class

And I wore my pow pink Define Jacket to match my bra!

Friday 2/22
What I did:  Lifted weights, again with treadmill sprints before weight sets, in between, and afterwards. I love this routine.  It keeps my heart rate up the whole time and sweating like a monster.

I wore my Express oversized drape neck pullover sweater to work, but it also served as my to/from gym lol...

Saturday 2/23
What I did:  Weights - I worked on my legs and butt hardcore.  I'm so sore right now I can barely walk!  I was doing 125 lb squats.  Omg... legs shaking... but I want my butt to be anti-gravity so I gotta do what I gotta do lol.  And I had this genius idea of running sprints in between sets too, and then finish off on 5 incline sideways and backwards run on the treadmill.

What I wore:  Lululemon swiftly tank in pink mist, with white Flow Y bra under.  And CW-X Pro tights, with New Balance Minimus Road shoes.

I wore 1/2 zip swiftly in ultra violet as to and from.

Sunday 2/24
Today was the only rest day.  Instead of working out, this is what I did while looking at the view in the first picture in this post:

It's 2 eggs benedicts, one is with carne asada, and the other is with crab cake.  So good!  A little splurge on the calories, and totally worth it.  =)

Maybe I'm crazy, but looking at my own pictures I feel like I do look a little leaner in this week's photos, especially towards the end.  Those 5 lbs decrease had to come off somewhere!  I'm happy what I'm doing is working.  Will keep pushing next week and hope for good results!  


  1. Your waist is looking so tiny!! You must be feeling great. Way to go!! :)


    1. Hmmm I just googled it and remember seeing it a while ago - it is way too warm for where I live. But it's cute if you live in a colder climate and are going to get use out of it!
