Today’s workout: TurboFire HIIT 15

I’m surprised I still have all of my hair. I am moving my site to a new host. And boy, it sure isn’t easy! If you have done this on your own (and I am learning as I go) you understand the hair pulling, the headaches, and the frustration. When the site is finally up and ready, it will be worth it right? RIGHT!?

Last week was my blog-iversary and I hosted a giveaway thanks to the lovely people at Larabar. Would you like to know if you won!? KELSEY!! If you are reading please email me your name and mailing address. Sweetsnsweat@gmail.com Congratulations lady!!

So, what are your workout plans for the week? Here’s mine:
Today: TurboFire HIIT 15
Tomorrow: Run (interval work)
Wednesday: Weights (upper body)
Thursday: Run (interval work)
Friday: Weights (upper body)
Saturday: 9 mi. run

*when I say weights I mix it up by doing P90X, Les Mills, or TurboFire upper, lower, sculpt, or tone. Whatever mood that strikes me!

I have some big, fun plans coming up too! Keep reading!

*random* Have you ever tried wasabi peas? I told my husband it was like chewing on acid and then it turned into crap. So disgusting. Who would eat these!? Garbage!!

Blog-iversary and a GIVEAWAY!!

1 Mar

Happy Anniversary to me! A year ago today I wrote my very first post. Did I think I would be doing this…still? No? Do you want me to stop? Maybe. I’ll stop when I run out of things to say. And if you ask anyone I know, I just don’t know how to shut up.

So, whether this is your first time reading my very well thought out words or your last, I thank you. I mean it. I really do. There are a billion bloggers better than me out there. But, you are here. Reading MY words. You must feel so much wiserer…

I’ll keep this short and sweet so you can go on with your lives. I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate you reading. It takes time to figure out what I’m trying to say. Trust me. I can barely make sense of myself. I love seeing strong traffic on a post. I love that YOU care about what I have to say. THANK YOU!

My gift to you: I’m doing a LÄRABAR giveaway. To enter, just comment below on how much you love me. No, just kidding. Just tell me what your favorite color is. Go crazy. And as usual…extra points for Facebooking, Tweeting, etc.

Love to you all!!

You win.

Last week I started to feel as if I was coming down with something. Sure enough, a truck hit me on Christmas day. Joy! So, not only was I sick, but Tyrell was too.
We spent the day grossing eachother out with our coughing and sniffling while watching Roseanne. It was a Christmas to remember. I told Tyrell that atleast we’re home together and it was better than a few years ago when we spent Christmas in the hospital with our sick two month old baby. But then I agreed with him when he said, “Yeah, but atleast we got to order Chinese.” So true.

My 90 days of Les Mills Pump was supposed to end on Christmas day too. I have 2 more workouts to do and I’m done. I don’t have a set program in mind that I want to tackle. I plan on running alot more, possibly scheduling a ton of races. I need to make my mind up about that soon. It’s hard to think about running when your lungs feel like they’re full of broken glass. I never get sick, once a year maybe, but when I do, I go all out.

It would make me feel better if I could make your day. The awesome people at Click sent me a canister of Vanilla Latte Click and a Click tumbler. You know my obsession with my tumblers right? Love em. And look at the cute straw. Awww!

To enter this giveaway, I want you to comment below and tell me what your New Year’s resolution is. You get an entry with your initial comment. You can FB, Tweet, LIKE my FB page, etc. just make sure you comment each time so I can keep track. Good luck my friends!

What’s in this post? Some product reviews AND a chance to win 1 of 2 $25.00 gift cards to Vitacost! How sweet is that?

I received a free goodie bag from Vitacost the other day. Don’t you just love free things? They’re the reason I get up every day…not really, but they do play a part.

Earnest Eats Dark Choco Mint

20121205-065453.jpg
I love chocolate and I love mint. Can’t go wrong with this little bar of goodness. This company bakes these on baking trays! It’s real, whole food. Just delicious.

Vitacare gum.

20121205-071214.jpg
Gum with vitamins and calcium? Did you know there was such a thing? Not me! This gum is really good. My rule of thumb for gum: two pieces at a time. Always. I really liked this gum. Super minty, which I love, and it didn’t hurt my jaws!

TeeChia Super Seeds Cereal

20121205-071932.jpg

Chia, Flax, Quinoa, Amaranth, Ramon & Pumpkin
Gluten Free
6 g Fiber
1100 mg ALA Omega-3 Fatty Acids

BWC (Beauty Without Cruelty) Lotion

20121205-072512.jpg
The name says it all. This is the lotion I use after doing dishes. It’s so soft and it doesn’t have a strong scent. I love the way it makes my hands feel. So glad the nice guy, Andrew, threw this in for me!

OK, now for the good part! I will be giving away 2 $25.00 gift cards to Vitacost. So, you can do some shopping or yourself or maybe you can scratch a few Christmas presents off of your list!
