Inspiring fitness lovers to have their cupcake and eat it too!

Since I will not be posting that much with such a busy weekend ahead, I wanted to leave you with a poem that my Director at work sent out..  Please make sure you have a tissue ready…


There has been much sadness around this holiday season, and I already see a lot of sick children where I work, so my heart has been heavy lately.  I am going to treasure my time with my family this weekend and next week as we celebrate the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ!

I hope you all will cherish your time here on earth and the blessings God has truly bestowed upon us!  We take for granted so many things including our lives and our health.  And as people thought the world was going to end, we are still here 🙂  I told my step son that Only GOD can determine when the world will end, since he created it and everything in it!

Try to Remember the TRUE Meaning of CHRISTMAS this year!

PS> I will try to pick the winner of the mad hectic oatmeal giveaway  tonight.  I hope everyone has a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Last night was the first real SNOW fall that I have seen!! Woo Hoo! It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

After work yesterday I went to the gym and did a 5 minute warm up on the elliptical followed by BACK and SHOULDERS .

You can see my other back and shoulder exercises too:

A Holiday Workout

Fast Upper Body

I super set with mostly abs exercises:


I super set all my exercises to get done quicker so I could get home to watch X- Factor.  I also watched some at the gym 🙂  Who were your rooting for? I was voting for Carly Rose the whole way!  Shes too cute.

Carly Rose Sonenclar struts her stuff.

I saw this on Sam’s blog and loved it.  Totally true!

Over the past couple months my arms gained 1/2 inch. By February my goal is to gain another 1/2 inch!!

Oh yeah! (This is all you get from now.)  My friend told me that if I wanted to blog to be a success I had to post before and after pics, well here is my arm at least 🙂  Maybe more to come later.


When I got home from the gym I had a Greek Yogurt!


I don’t know about you guys but this holiday season has been so tempting.  There is BAD food everywhere, and I crave sweets at night. Instead of giving in, follow these rules :

This is what I have to deal with everyday at work!  And this isn’t even half of it!  Of course, nobody brings fruits or veggies!

I try to just walk away so its not in plain sight, and I tell everyone else to eat it!






And I get cookies sent to my house too, omg!

And then look where I have to hide all the Christmas gifts so the dogs don’t eat everything and Alec cant snoop.  Lily at some bubble gum that was supposed to go in Alec’s stocking so I had to come up with a clever spot!


Yes, the bath tub. I think it is pretty clever!  That means I have to wrap all of this tonight! I know I am a slacker.

You still have time to enter the Mad Hectic Oatmeal Giveaway!

I will pick a winner this weekend!
