I felt the same way training with her today! No complaints, I held my breathe and I prayed for it to go by FAST!
Jen is in the September IRONMAN MAGAZINE and this photo above is just one of the great shots from the photo shoot she did for this! I have to say that this photo is off the charts! It is worth at least a $10,000,000 contract for NIKE!Any sponsor would be smart to have Jen represent them! Why? She is loyal and dedicated and puts 110% in whatever she is doing or making someone else do!
Yep! The subject of this blog! What she made me do! OH~ how I dread how my body will feel in the morning after today's workout!
I honestly thought I would puke a few times. It went like this, HARDCORE, NONSTOP, PUSHED TO THE LIMIT and FAST! (Thank GOD!~)
Warm up was 20 weighted deadlifts (in which I can't do without bending my legs) - In time...
10 Pop Squats
Then we did this killer routine of step ups and jogging and then even a harder cycle of double steps with a squat, 50 toe touches and then we would jog a lap! I wanted to crawl...
3 or 4 Sets (Felt like 20)
At this point my legs were sweating...Something I have honestly not seen happen since I ran track!
Then - yes there was MORE!
We did lunges and burpies...not just a few, about 20 of them and only rested for 30 secs between everything!
Freakin throw up at this point!
Then more...Lunges and pop squats and then MORE! We did side steps really fast that felt like I was doing basketball suicides!
After all of that we did leg presses and I have never been so happy for Jen to say..."That's all guys!"
We took a 15 minute break and then did LDean's awesome spin class! I am growing to like spinning more and have found you can burn 900 calories spinning for an hour! That is one Margarita on the Rocks! MMMMMM
Speaking of MMMMMM Food! I am so proud of how well I have stayed on this eating plan! Notice I did not call it a DIET! It is 7 small meals all day!
I think I get a cheat meal tomorrow...
Either way! What a day! That Jen is something!
I have to also mention that I officially met SUNSHINE! She trained with us and I am so proud of her for pulling through both the legs and the spinning! She had told me her goal was to go sky diving when she reaches her goal...I ran into a friend tonight that showed me pictures of her recent trip skydiving! It just felt like KARMA - I am booking it! Time to do it! I have the name and company and am now ready to book a FALL JUMP! I have a list I will share on a blog soon for you of my 40 things to do before I turn 40!
Sky Diving is on that list! OH YEAH! Rock ON! HERE WE GO!

Jen said that I would have far more energy and I REALLY, REALLY DO!
I also want to say that I have had a slammed day with appointments and this has been the best diet for pack and go! I can't wait to get on the scales Monday and weigh in!
Now listen, if you are reading this and debating on what to do or not to do about joining me on this challenge you have to GET OFF THE FENCE NOW!
Just contact Lishia Dean (all contact info is on the blogs below) or if you prefer just call her at 336-380-2691 and tell her I told you to call her! She will set you up on a program that will work with your budget...I am tell you that these women really know what they are doing. I thought I knew what I needed to do but I can't tell you how different it feels to know you have to be accountable to someone other than my mirror for results...
I say that because....well.....I kinda even had the 1st thought of a real cheat today! I broke a nail and had to get it fixed and of all places I was right beside COLDSTONE! OMG!
I am so proud of myself...I left the nail place and went straight to my car and loved my rice cake and peanut butter!
I am telling you that if I can do this SO CAN YOU!

Chow for now! Gotta go eat my Salmon, Greens and SWEET Potato! Oh so yummy!

To best describe the balance wheel you need to picture an old wagon wheel as shown above. each spoke defines an element in your life that keeps you rolling so to speak -
There is also a very important center core which on the wheel is called the hub...Your center is the base for all of your other elements....I will share more later but I will tell you for many years of my life I had me, myself and I as the center of that hub thinking I was the one to carry the load for all of the elements! NO - NO - NO! Not anymore! After years of soul searching and I found a solid hub, center, core and I am forever thankful and blessed! This you must find on your own. Purpose Driven Life was a very instrumental book for me in finding the best direction and path for where I have been, who I am and where I am going! Enjoy that read!
Now back to the elements! 5 Key Elements should complete your wheel of balance and as you look at these please know that when you sit down and do serious business planning, life goal setting or just planning a general to do list it is important to consider all 5 key elements and make time for each of these factors in your life...
These are no order of importance because you will find that the wheel only rolls steady when you have equal weight on all elements.
PHYSICAL FITNESS TIME
Now, that you have this I want to leave you to ponder on it for a bit...Are you balanced? Do you dwell more in one area? Does one area take over all the others? Can you separate all five and be comfortable and dedicate time to each? Think about your core as well? Who or what is your core and why?
It is not what you do in life that defines you! If what you do defines you than who are you when you are not doing what you do? mmmmmmm Say that 5 times! Have fun getting balanced...It is not something that will happen overnight but setting goals in each of these elements will sure be a great start!
Dedicated to you!

This is not a pretty butt, BUT I can promise you that in 90 days it will be! I would post more of the before pics but felt it best to wait until I had a good comparison that I felt good with instead of a sleepless night of who was counting the dimples on my butt cheeks! Not that anyone really cares but there is just some sense of wierdness posting bad butt pics on my blog! By the way, no need to count, McKenzie already has...She has been counting my but dimples since she was old crawling and looked up at me washing dishes...Her little finger was pushing on my bottom and I realized what she was doing. It has been a joke ever since then but one that I prefer to hear from her say "MOM - no dimples"!
So here are the stats!
Starting Weight: 149 lbs 25% Body Fat
Breast ( across nips): 40"
Bra Strap: 33 1/2"
2" Above my Belly Button: 33"
Belly Button: 32" - pushed out 34"
4" Below Belly Button: 32"
The sitting spread of the Butt Hips: 40"
Upper Thighs: 24"
Mid Thigh: 21"
Above Knee: 17"
Neck: 13 1/2"
I will be posting a weight check in for everyone that is doing the challenge with me each Monday night! If you want to join me just read the post here in this blog and email me!
Later my friends!
I want to make sure again before I share what I am eating that this plan was designed for my needs. What your needs are and what my needs are could be different but I am excited about the portions and the timing for the program. I asked Jen if I could switch anything around and I was told NO - that the plan is designed for a metabolism boost and she has fats, proteins, carbs etc. timed perfect for what she is trying to accomplish with me...(a drop in 20 lbs) -
1st meal: 4 egg whites (yes just the whites) and 1/3 cup Oatmeal - I use Quaker Instant Oatmeal
2nd Meal: 2 Pieces of fruit choose: Apple, Grapefruit or 1/2 cup green grapes (Did I hear Yummy)
3rd Meal LUNCH: 2 Cups of Spinach lettuce, 4 oz. of grilled chicken (NO SEASONING), 2 Tbs. of raisins, 2 tbs of sliced almonds, and 1/2 cup of chopped peppers and 3 tbs. of Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing
4th Meal: Protein Shake with water and ice
5th Meal: ONE Plain Rice Cake and 2 TBS of any peanut butter
Lastly, before bed M, W, F have 6 oz. yogurt and Kachi cereal mixed in it and on T, TH a protein drink!
I have been pretty good on the water intake but am sure I should be drinking more because I have not lived in the bathroom flushing out!
I am so excited to start today and feel so energized with my new eating program and plans!
Most of you know that I have consulted in a professional for this final, almost 40, get it together life change!
Personally, I motivate and love to help others but every now and then even the motivator in me needs someone to push me and hold me accountable. So, I have not just hired a personal trainer, I have hired the best of the best, a professional, a hard core fitness expert, a TWO time Ms. Olympia, TWO time Ms. Fitness International and TWO time Arnold Classic Fitness Champion! If you do not know who "Jen O" is please let me introduce you to her now! Yes, above - see Jen on the front cover of the September 2009 IRONMAN Magazine...
