Happy Friday!

I decided I am going to try to do a FLASHBACK FRIDAY every week.

 I will post it on either Friday or Saturday and it will consist of some highlighted workouts and food from the week.

A lot of people do “Fitness Friday or Fun Fact Friday” so I am going to do “Flashback Friday” and you guys can let me know what you think!? …..and BE HONEST!

flashback friday

I obviously love posting pictures and in depth details about my workouts because I want you guys to try them!   I always want to get a good workout in and sometimes I even post how many calories I burn etc…  Even when I only get 30-40 minutes of weight lifting in I still like to let you guys know about it!  Many tabata’s can be done at home with minimal equipment too!  I know it is hard sometimes to get out of the house when its freeeeeezing out!

Food is another topic I discuss frequently 🙂 It’s my favorite part about blogging.   I love finding new meals and making my own twists on recipes.

So here goes nothing…

Saturday: Back and Abs

Sunday: Chest and Legs

Monday: Pushup Challenge Day #1/ Biceps and Triceps

Tuesday: Legs

**I need to work my Shoulders more because I feel like that and my Chest are my weakest body parts!

I hope everyone likes my Friday Flashbacks!

Have a good weekend everyone!

I want to start by saying that my 30 Day Challenge of NO Sweets in January was a success!

30 day challenge

 I went the whole month without a cupcake, cookies, cake, cobbler, or chocolate and I feel GREAT!   When you cut all that sugar out of your diet it really makes you feel so much better and gives you a TON of energy!

I will discuss sweets this later in my February Goals…

Now, Lets start with the FUN:



1. A night out tonight- With my favorite girl friends!


2. Valentine’s Day  🙂

3.  Superbowl Sunday– Are you just going for the food and commercials like me??

4.  My 3 month fit test with Michelle (my old trainer)

5.  My sister-in-law and father-in-law’s birthdays!

6.  Special dinner to Brio’s to drink peach Bellini’s (These are amazing!)  I can’t say who this special night out is for though!

Now on to the GOALS:


Do you have any goals this month?  They could be related to:






Here are some of my February Goals:

1.  Gain another 1/2 inch on my arms at my 3 month fit test!  Yes, I brought the picture of my HUGE bicep back!
