Just the Two of Us

21 Oct

This morning my Mom is flying back to Minnesota.  I always get sad when company leaves and am always waiting for them to come back out to visit!  I love having company and think time goes by too quickly when they are here.  Its back to just the Husband and I

This mornings workout was just light cardio- it’s my non-running day to give my hips and knees a rest.  I did each of the following for 15 minutes:  Arc Trainer, Upright Bike and Treadmill (I walked at an incline of 12-15% at the speed of 4.2).  I was planning on doing another 15 minutes of the stair climber but the Husband and a friend finished their strength workout early.  Here are my workout stats from this AM:

  • Time:  0:49:57
  • Calories:  439 (35% fat)
  • Max Heart Rate:  179bpm (93% max)
  • Average Heart Rate:  161bpm (83% max)

When we got back from the gym I couldn’t wait for pumpkin spice coffee!  I think I drank the whole cup without even thinking about it.  I am already excited for tomorrow morning when I get another cup!  : )


Morning Meditation

Motivation for the Day:  Mexico- 16 days! 

Three Things I am Thankful for Today:  1-Rain (Arizona needs rain)  2-I think our elliptical plug is coming in the mail today so we can start doing some extra cardio before Mexico at home!  3-  Its a short day at work which will go by quickly because I have so much to get done!

Goal for the Day:  Pilates this afternoon and a huge salad for dinner!  Yum

Motivational Quote of the Day:  Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude. -Thomas Jefferson

Breakfast today is a banana and a piece of Low Sodium Ezekiel Bread and PB!  : )


This afternoon I will post my Mexico Workout Countdown on how I’ll use the next 16 days to get a bikini body I am confident of.  I will also post my meal plan I will stick with most of the time up until Mexico that delivers maximum results while still fueling my body thru tough workout!

Is anyone trying to get fit for a certain vacation or event coming up?  If so what are you doing to get to your results?

    What heart rate monitor are you using? That’s really cool it tells you what percentage of cals you burned are fat!!
