Not pretty in person

So I hinted that hubby needed to read my blog (so he could happen to see what I wanted for Christmas). He was asking for the links to "clarify". Well the other day I happen to walk into Macy's and find the purse I wanted. Okay - it was not very pretty in person! Very disappointed. Hubby said he hasn't bought anything yet, so I told him forget the purse. It looked better on the computer screen. Now I have to find a couple of other things to put on my list...... off to browse.....

A small list for Santa

Dear Santa (aka hubby),

You probably won't read this because I don't think you read my blog at all. But by chance you do here is what I want for Christmas....

1.This Jessica Simpson Sasha Satchel in Rubio (found here at macy's and it is on sale right now!)

2. A clarasonic mia -this is a facial cleansing system for my face to make it nice and smooth. This is the smallest and cheapest of the clarasonics. It can be found here or here.

Now I don't expect both or even one since we said we would just do a couple of little things (and that you don't read my blog), but since you asked what I want for Christmas - here it is.

Now I know I haven't been that good this year, but if you are willing to overlook it that would be great!

Best Wife
P.S. You can go wrong with Target gift cards either.

3 down...

....47 more to go! Not bad for my first week. Let me tell you I have been certainly getting a workout! I am quite sore after each one! But I like these muscle confusion workouts. I might only be doing cardio for 20 minutes, bu I am working - that is for sure.

A new start...

So yesterday I started this program called Body For Life. My husband recommended it to me. He had heard some good things about it from friends, so I went to the bookstore to pick it up. It is written by Bill Phillips. Here is the website. When I went online and also opened the book I was amazed to see all the transformations! Wow!

Anyways, I have never really planned a workout. I usually go into the gym and just pick out things to do. Here you need to plan out what you are doing. MWF - you do strength training workouts - it was supposed to take 45 minutes and I finished in 30 min. THS - you do 20 min aerobic training. You can't beat 20 minutes! And Sunday is your free day and cheat day!

So I did my upper body yesterday - and I certainly felt the burn! and even my cardio today was challenging! I am looking forward to continuing this program and letting you know my results. My overall goal is to lose 50 pounds. I will weigh myself every Monday morning and let you know how I move towards my goal. My husband is rewarding me as I move towards my goal to help with my motivation, so I am pretty excited about that!
