No work out today... just had my cocktail in the morning and two meals on the go... spent 10 hours of my day being my baby's co-pilot in Indiana all day... Happy to be back!!

Tomorrow... a run is in order... no idea how many miles will be logged. Lol...

Enjoy the weekend people!! And get ready to make it a fabulous week next week!! Now here is another good exercise to keep in the mix!! =D

4. Walking lunges (Works: legs, butt)

What you need: a clear stretch of floor

How to do it: Stand with feet shoulder-width apart. Keep chest high and abs tight as you step forward with your left foot, landing on your mid-foot and lowering yourself until the knee is at a 45-degree angle. At the same time bend the right leg until your right knee almost contacts the floor; continue stepping forward with each lunge (keep your torso erect, not leaning forward), alternating legs. Repeat 20 reps on each leg.

Why you need it: These lunges increase core strength, flexibility, and endurance, and they benefit the cardiovascular system, says Volkmer. "It helps when walking up stairs or hills."

Yesterday... had an awesome hour of Turbo Fire!! Fuel was great!! And never fail with my fountain of youth and health cocktail! (Thank you Isotonix!!)

Today, had my cocktail... and then ran a tad UNDER a 5K... (technical difficulties) smh...
But I DID PR in my mile time!!! Yeah baby!!! =D Came home... and had a power protein shake with energy supplements, complete greens, oatmeal and blueberries!!! Feeling UNSTOPPABLE!!!!

Went to my dental cleaning... dentist and hygienist noticed amazing healthy gums and teeth. Even asked if I am whitening them!! I told them that I would tell them about my miracle 'Cocktail of Health and Nutrition' but they wouldn't believe me. So they asked me for more detailed information!!! THEY want to get their hands on what I offer EVERYONE every day of my life... Go figure!!!

Life IS what you make of it!! Live it to the max and it will show bloggers!! Shine bright and help others... Have a wonderful weekend!!

Enjoy this move idea for a max benefit from Prevention:

3. Squat jumps (Works: legs, core, butt)

What you need: a forgiving landing surface (a rubber mat or grass field)

How to do it: Stand with feet hip-width apart; begin to lower yourself towards the ground until your heels start to lift off the floor, keeping your back flat and eyes straight ahead. Pause only briefly at the bottom of this phase and then jump up quickly, fully extending your legs, then land softly on your mid-foot and roll back towards your heels. Keep your abdominals engaged and your back straight throughout the movement. Start with small jumps for 10 to 15 reps.

Why you need it: As we age we tend to do fewer activities quickly, which results in diminishing fast-twitch muscle fibers, says Holland. This exercise uses those fibers and keeps them functioning.

Gotta' LOVE being on a mission to succeed!!! Today I took my Isotonix cocktail and then had a banana for breakfast with water. (Milk is just too heavy for me now... even the skim!) After my EIGHT mile run, (Yes, I finally ran like I mean business!!!) Lol... I had my protein shake with blueberries, oatmeal, my complete greens and my Mochatonix energy boost!! I've been hydrating ever since and I feel GREAT!!! (We'll see what tomorrow feels like... o_O) Dinner will be some baked chicken with a little pasta and maybe a salad. And there will be NO snacking today!! (Unless it's on my fresh red cherries... =)

How are all of you challenge takers doing?! Just 19 more days of hard core working out and natural fueling!!! Let's see what you're made of!!! I know, I'm not going to let up just yet!!!! Go bloggers!! GO!!!!

Here is another idea for changing up your work out: Enjoy!!

Add these strength training moves to your workout for faster results

2. Walk up (Works: chest, shoulders and core)

What you need: stairs or an aerobic step

How to do it: Facing a set of stairs, place hands shoulder-width apart and in a push-up position approximately 4 to 5 steps up. Tighten abdominals, keep torso rigid (avoid hiking up hips or letting them sag) and "walk" one hand up to the next step, bring the other hand up, and then walk the first hand and then the second back down to the starting position. Continue walking up and down 15 times on each side.

Why you need it: This move strengthens many different muscle groups, including the core, which you use in sports such as tennis and golf and even walking, says Kristina Volkmer, MPH, ACSM clinical exercise specialist, exercise physiologist at the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha.

Had that cocktail... then a little egg/ham/cheese/potato muffin w/hash-browns and a tiny glass of skim milk for breakfast. Shared a 'watchamacallit' chocolate bar with my 4 year old... and then had my protein shake with complete greens and energy Mochatonix! For dinner had 2 small homemade subs and snacked on two small slices of raisin bread w/spread. Mmmm!

Turbo Fire is very awkward but it makes me sweat!! And I LOVE the stretch 10!!

Hope you are ALL making it thru with some cardio!!! And remember... we don't have that long to the 18 of JUNE!!! Make every workout session your best! And keep working at staying away from the Not God made fuel!!! Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate!!!

How to Create the Best Workout

It's easy to get comfortable with a tried-and-true workout routine. But if it's results you want, you'll need to shake things up occasionally. "Changing your routine around every 4 to 6 weeks keeps muscles challenged so you continue to see results," says Tom Holland, MS, CSCS, author of Beat the Gym (William Morrow, 2011). Swap out your regular exercises with these moves to get more bang for your workout buck. Start with 2 sets and work up to 3 when it feels easy.

1. One-arm pull down (Works: back and biceps)

What you need: medium to heavy resistance tubing with a handle on one end

How to do it: Attach the end of exercise tubing high up on the door hinge above your head. Stand in a semi-lunge (for balance) with one foot about six inches in front and to the side of the other, knees slightly bent, and pull the handle straight down with one arm; pause and slowly return to starting position. Do 12 to 15 reps on each side.

Why you need it: A traditional rowing exercise using both arms at once allows the dominant side to take over, which can lead to injury, says Holland. This move strengthens muscles equally on each side of the spine, which reduces the risk of low-back pain.

WoW... really enjoying that Turbo Fire. Just 30/45min of a great interval training and thorough stretching that is one of the best I've ever come by. Not gonna' lie... it's not INSANE but it gets the heart pumpin' and the sweat on!! =)

Little sore still and I am probably not going to work out today. Today is a day OFF. Can't throw the balance out of whack... Lol...

Had my cocktail and am about to have 1/2 a p.b.&j. sandwich with very little skim milk for breakfast.

Remember to PLAN for your success during the week! Hit the store and stock up on 'Good for you' FUEL!! Not just food... ;)
