SELFIE Sunday;)

In Breakfast, clean food, cleanse, Sunday funday, Uncategorized, WOD On January 27, 2013 3 Comments

Let me just say that I LOVE MY WEEKENDS! who doesn’t really!?
Never fails though, up at 5:30 a.m. Lol. I can’t sleep in to save my life. I watched drive last night, and fell in love with Ryan Gosling all over again 😉 I managed to also make it to my bed instead of passing out on the couch. Hallelujah.

This morning I woke up to a foggy morning, and a cuddly pup. So nice. Got a bit of stuff done on the computer, took my cleansing pills, and reheated my two leftover AMAZEBALL pancakes!

I topped them with a bit of natures hollow sugar free honey and a few fresh raspberries. Yummmmmm.

Had my morning espresso, and the pup and I headed to the salon to do a client for the SAG awards at 8:30 am. No, I usually don’t take the pup to work, but the salon is closed on Sunday, and it was just us, so no bigs:) it was bring your pup to work day:)

I just love how dense these are…a bit of a pound cake vibe. So no hatin on that! They are gorgeous in my eyes. A bit food obsessed… Yes:/

20130127-180015.jpg

Get ready for Sunday Selfies!! lol.
I had loads of plans today, in which most fell through, but I got to see some old friends and that was awesome! Headed to the folks house to drop off the pup.

Selfie #1.
I’ll admit it…I’ve become that girl.

I don’t know what’s come over me lately, but all I want all day everyday, is breakfast food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. What a freak!
Today’s lunch was at my Favorite Brunch spot. Egg Plantation. The best. THE BEST!

I’m admitting now…I had cheese…and a couple bites ( ok, more like 4-5 bites) of the most decadent peanut butter stuffed French toast.. I KNOW! Ahhhhh so naughty. I had to c’mon.
I ordered an egg white omelette. ( which came yellow. Hmmmmm…I wasn’t about to send it back though) with turkey sausage, mushrooms,spinach, tomatoes, and CHEEEEESE! So much for no dairy on my cleanse! I’m sorry, I just love that shit wayyyy to much. But…. I have cut back, and that really should count for something, no?
Oh, andddddd, a side of fruit…annndddddd gluten free Udi’s toast.
Wow, now that I’m writing this….looking like a BIG girl right about now…

20130127-180038.jpg

Best part of the day! Meeting up with ol’ friends, catching up, and this lil munchkin. I haven’t seen him since he was like 3 months old! He is the cutest, and sooooo smart. No, I’m not just saying that cuz I luv em’….
He already knows some sign language, he know kisses and hugs and sooo much more! Ahhhhhhh
I’m getting baby fever !! Omg!

20130127-180152.jpg

Haha! Every time you say “kisses” he keeps his mouth open like “make out seshhhhh” haha. The absolute BEST!

SELFIE #2

Thank got we sat and chatted for a bit and allowed for the monstrous lunch to digest, otherwise I don’t think I would’ve made it to the gym!
On my way to LA fitness for a serious
Workout.

20130127-180256.jpg

I had a couple days off from working out, and I was getting the itch! I headed straight for the elliptical for a 60 min interval cardio session.

Alternating between resistance 5 incline 9 to resistance 10 incline 5. Cardio alone, I burned 571 calories.

Today’s strength training consisted of:
ABS-
crunches
Leg lifts
Stability ball raises
Planking

BACK-
Superman raises
Row
Dead lifts
Back flys

Overall: 743 cals burned. Hopefully some of that stuffed French toast left my body! Lol
I felt fantastic!

20130127-180333.jpg

A little word of advice….
“Don’t think about all the other things you could be doing with your time, just get your workout in, and then enjoy the other things. I promise, you won’t regret it” you’ll enjoy the day so much more knowing that you built strength within yourself physically and mentally.

Turning a bad day… Into a good one…

In life, Never perfect, Sunday funday, Uncategorized On January 14, 2013 2 Comments

Yup… That’s my car…and yesterday had started off on the right foot. Damn!
This day just went from bad to worse, just read on…

On my way to do a client, I got on the freeway, as as I turned my head to switch lanes, BOOM!!!,
They all suddenly pressed their brakes right in front of me, no way I couldn’t hit them. Ughhhhh

Gotta get this fixed right away… Hey, that’s why we get insurance, right?
20130114-065256.jpg

It get better.
I get home, and thought, “you know what would make me feel better?”
Ahhh, an Epsom salt bath. I was feeling stressed and tight from being tense during the accident, and was seeing signs of a premature headache, so it was just was I was needing.
Well…while I’m in there, I keep wondering why the water level is going down…. So naturally, I just adding hot water. Logical, right?

As soon as I get out, POUNDING at the front door, that sounded like either cops, or a raging jealous boyfriend. ( you know, that kind of pounding). I freaked, put on my robe, and hesitantly opened the door.
It was my poor neighbor panicking.
He took one look at me, ” Were you taking a bath?”
Me: ummmm yeah why.
Neighbor: cuz my ceiling collapsed and is flooding my house.
Me: oh no, I’m sorry.. But I don’t think it’s me, I don’t think I have any water anywhere. Hmmmm
Neighbor: you may wanna check your kitchen….
Me: ok………..HOLY SHIT, F*%#!

Yeah…water covering the kitchen floor, coming through the ceiling. Jussssssst perfect.
20130114-065321.jpg

To top it off, this is the best part as the night was coming to end…. Oh and… I will spare your eyes by not sharing the sick pic, but, Willy had a a bone mid-day that I had forgotten to take away from him, and a few bourse later…freakin threw up all over the place!
I mean….. I just don’t even know what to say. Why do they pick the coziest places to throw up, huh? My area rug, even went upstairs to , so graciously leave me a present on my bedspread. Why can’t you be sick on the DAMN HARDWOOD!!!
I just really loved finding that on my bed.

Nice, full bag of soaked towels I gotta wash.

20130114-065344.jpg

Ok, I’m done with the pity party. Since the horrible disasters, I turned my frown upside down. 🙂

THINGS THAT I’M GRATEFUL FOR TODAY

Gloomy Gorgeous Sunday

In family, local shopping, Sunday funday, Uncategorized On January 7, 2013 3 Comments

My favorite day of the week….SUNDAY.
Last night was my first experience at Supercross. It was nothing like I have ever experienced. It actually was super cool, and although I was in and out of passing out, (exhausted from a full day of clients) but non the less, very exciting, different evening:)

My body decided to sleep in till 7 am this morning. I know, weird. I had to head over to the parental unit’s house today to pick up willy, and of course to hang with the folks & BBQ:) not too much planned for today,precisely why I love Sundays…it’s a free for all. I started off with my ritual cup of espresso and almond milk, so creative…lol.

As I looked in my fridge looking for what I should stuff in my Vitamix, I realized I had absolutely nothing! No kale, no chard, No NOthin.
So even though the forecast called for rain, I took my cozy lil ass on to the farmers market.
Turned out to be a gorgeous morning, with a few rays is sunshine.

20130106-204836.jpg

Hiiiiiiiiii, yes, I stocked up. Homegurrrrl went nuts.
I never go there with a list, obviously. Too many goods to limit myself, so I watch myself by only bringing 2 recyclable bags with me.

I came home with some beautiful fruits and veggies.
– rainbow chard
– kale
– cauliflower
– broccoli
– Fuji apples
– persimmons( last batch of the season)
– onions
– carrots
– green onions
– cilantro
– ginger
– sweet potato
– Japanese cabbage
– crimson grapes

All organic, and at very great prices.

20130106-202842.jpg

Check out these sweet carrots. These would be perfect as a side dish. They are stunning in flyover and color.

20130106-202921.jpg

Really, the main reason why I rushed to the farmer’s so early, was because I wanted to make a green protein smoothie. So as soon as I got home and organized…. I made my tummy happy.

20130106-202947.jpg

I did a little something different this time.

I added pinches of:
Tumeric: a natural anti inflammatory
Cayenne: speeds up metabolism, lowers blood pressure, and helps circulation.
Ginger: aids in gastrointestinal issues
A small persimmon

A bit funny, but really good.

20130106-203118.jpg

While shopping around, I came across this great little antique/vintage shop that carried soooooo many amazing things! I wanted to go home with everything!
I dropped my grocery bags and practically ran toward these fab items.

20130106-203203.jpg

Vintage bottle holder with glass bottles…had to buy.
And a great dish with silverware, which I thought would be great for some food shots!
Ughhhhhhh, aren’t they precious!?
I just had to share. Sometimes, when you’re least looking, huh? 😉

20130106-203227.jpg

Today, was a very special day…. I finally cleaned, and organized my fridge. I would of shown you a before pic, but it was just too embarrassing. I mean, it’s not like it was a hoarder pig fridge or anything, it just was a mess. Like a MESS.
so she she is, all pretty, and clean.

20130106-220656.jpg
It’s amazing how much more you can fit in there, once you throw out all the weird, random shit you don’t need.
I didn’t need 5 different kinds of mustard. Really.

20130106-220719.jpg

I promise, it’ll help you and encourage you to eat better and cleaner:)
It was definitely detoxifying…

20130106-220800.jpg

After my Sunday shopping, I headed to sunday ZUMBA and got my dance on:) I had naughty foods last night so I figured, he’ll, lets burn some of that shit off. After class, sweaty n all, I headed over to the folks house, and got ready for a meat-eaters lunch…

Argentinian ribs, chorizo, and salad with chimichurri. The bomb.com.

The rents. The cutest. We love our Sunday bbq’s. Dad’s a master on the grill btw.

20130106-203601.jpg

I get so hungry after I workout. Protein galore.

20130106-203631.jpg

Excuse my inner carnivore.

20130106-203705.jpg

After lunch, mom and I ran errands. Of course hit up our fave, Tj Maxx 😉
Yes, we are maxinistas;)
Hung out at home and laid low.
We were gonna go see Les Miserables, but, when I saw it was almost 3 hrs long…. I changed my mind. I probably would’ve passed out in the theater. That’s just too long to be sitting in there, I’m sorry.

Dinner was some local Thai food. I literally haven’t eaten Thai since I was actually in Thailand, which was in April. Ridiculous. My craving was gnarly, so I dragged mom, who had never tried Thai food, to a great little spot in town. It was delicious.

Now, in a food coma, it’s time for my bed. Up early mañana for a hike with my girl, Jules.
7:30 a.m to be precise.
#getafterit.
Goodnight friends…..P
