Well….it’s Monday. My day off. Sick as a dog. Ugh. I’ve been sick since Saturday when I woke up feeling like I got hit by a truck. I am not one to try and heal holistically….. I love all that stuff, but truthfully…I need the whatever the hell is gonna cure me the fastest. This chick cannot get sick. Too much to do! I can rest when I’m dead;) lol. Ok, just kidding. I’m not that crazy, but I am not opposed to over-the-counter meds to cure the average flu-like symptoms. I use my vitamins and stuff ore for preventative measures:)
Last night I stayed the night at my folks house. You know how it is when you’re sick….there’s nothing better than Mom and Dad catering to your every sicky girl request. “Mom, can you bring me water?” “Mom, can you finish the laundry I brought:(?” Lol. Sad, but true. I am such a mommy/daddy girl still at almost 30 damn years old.
So when I woke up cozy at the rents house after probably 12 hrs of “passed the eff out” sleep, I felt sooo much better.
This is what crossed my mind…..
I don’t remember the last time someone brought me breakfast in bed….but God,that is a delight! Thanks Mami;) luckily mom had the day off, so we both snuggled and had breakfast in bed while watching Disappeared on A&E. You know, chick stuff.
was egg white and spinach scramble
And a side of homemade FLAX toast with sugar free preserves.
Oh, and not to forget….my coffee of course. I used my favorite almond milk. 30 calorie SILK frothed with a packet of NuNaturals stevia.
I really didn’t want to start feeling shitty today, so I took my favorite “any kinda sick” go to. THERAFLU.
I finally rolled my ass outta bed, gathered all my crap from moms and headed back home to good ol’ Sherman Oaks. Once I handled some calories and payed bills, I felt we’ll enough to hike Fryman Canyon for a hike with the pup. It wasn’t super hot out today, so I figured he could stand it, besides, mama carries loads of water for him. He drinks more than me. Tisk. Tisk.
I worked up a good sweat to the top. All uphill, and somehow my freshly washed hair, still in tact.
A gorgeous day out. I let willy off the leash, and he plopped down in the shade for a photo op;) as you all know, I get hungry at the first sign of physical exertion, so I made sure to pack a yummy PROBAR for when I got to the top.

(Purely my own opinion, I was not paid for this review)
I felt like a new person after lunch. This is why I love to eat every couple of hours. Small meals of course. My energy levels stay leveled. if I wait to long…one of two things happens. I feel totally fatigued….or I binge like a fool. So, I opt for the lighter meals, more often.
Since returning from my awesome blend retreat in Utah, you all know that I’ve become a proud advocate of GPP Fitness. I make sure to check their website every single day for my workouts, inspiration, questions I may have, etc.
…and you best believe I took my ass on to the gym. I felt we’ll enough. I am pushing through. Trust me, I know my body, I wouldn’t have done it if I was weak.
6 days of workouts with SUNDAYS OFF. I also include 3 days of intense/moderate cardio. ( 2 of those cardio days being ZUMBA)
If I can do this…
SO CAN YOU.
REMINDER TO ALL MY AMIGAS!
Do NOT feel intimidated at the gym. Weights are not only for men! I promise…once you get in there, and release that fear, you will become sooooo empowered!
I grabbed all the equipment I needed, found space in the aerobic room and began my workout.
HOLY HARD!!!! This workout all together was maybe 30 minutes long, but AS EFFECTIVE as being in the gym 1 hour 15 min. This is what interval training looks like. Get in.. Do the work… And get out.
My gymboss interval timer.
My new Ryka high top performance shoes.
A list of my GPP work for the day.
As I’m writing this….I roasted delicious veggies for dinner:)
Tossed in EVOO, garlic powder, salt & pepper, and Italian seasonings.
@ 375 for approx 40 minutes or longer if you like it more caramelized.
