Cheater, Cheater

Now, this title reflects a couple of things. 1.  I have been cheating on my running with Halloween candy. Ugh. I’m somewhat ashamed of this weakness, but hey – I’m not perfect and won’t pretend to be. I have set-backs and walls and crazy high standards for myself. I’m much more in shape now than I was a few weeks ago, so I’m not too terribly disappointed, but I did need…

Sex, Sweat and Taboos

My large hispanic family shrinks shudders cringes at the thought of talking anything related to health, fitness, sex, partnerships, politics, love, life, and pretty much any topic with opposing views. But, what can we all agree on?FOOD! <— Click here for some food PRON!That’s right, who would’ve thought that Hispanics are foodies? {eye-roll}Yes, most of us are foodies. Actually, I’ve never met a Latina/Latino who doesn’t practically worship good food (what type…

Slow Your Roll!

I had a very long chat with my bestie last night. Unfortunately, her words stuck with me and very much interfered with my studying/cramming review time. She told me how she worries that I am always too busy to just sit back and enjoy the day. I guess that, for the most part, she’s right. My idea of relaxing is going for a 30 minute run or reading a chapter from…

The Challenge!

It’s over!24 days. Done!Hallelujah! I’ve lost 9 pounds and I am damn proud of myself. So proud, in fact – that I’m purchasing myself a LBD (little black dress – a sexy one, to celebrate our 5 year anniversary in chicness!)Plus, a pair of bootines and an awesome pair of running shoes ::cough, underarmour, cough:: Oh darling, the choices! These booties caught my eye. They come in black and green. Hmmm……

Love your Booty!

Here’s one for you to remember: Pamper yourself! I am always forgetting this. Between work, studying and volunteer work – I tend to put my needs last and all others first. This is the fastest way to run yourself into the ground! AVOID! AVOID! AVOID! I’ve been seriously forgetting to spend any time on myself, especially since I still feel phat. Ugh. Yes, I’m losing weight – but I’m not…

Bundle of Crazy

Still working on the diet thing, while dealing with girlisms. UGH. For those who don’t know, today is yesterday was (I just missed posting this by a few minutes, drat!) October 3rd!  Mean Girls Day! :]  There was so much crazy-drama-bat-crud-randomness today, that this simple little notion was able to bring a smile to my face.  I used this multiple times today. Oh yeah! I blame my hormones for all…

For the love of Sharpies!

I have been working my butt off all day!  In the past week I’ve gone through 3 highlighters and a whole mess of Sharpie pens – this studying business is no joke! That said, my diet has been a little wishy-washy as of late. Thank goodness for the meal replacement shakes I have for the 24-Day challenge! They taste so yummy! I now blend the chocolate shake with a banana,…

TOM is HERE

Let me tell you now, I’m hormonal – which means that I’m pissy, tired, SHOUTY and couldn’t control my tears if i tried. It’s been all chick-flicks and seriously craving some Ben&Jerry’s…and then my rational mind briefly stepped in to present my health-conscience. That bitch! Trying to diet and workout these past few days has been so-freaking-hard! I’ve wanted to just curl up into a ball and lay on the…
