day 15
day 15
day 15
i am now a size 3 in jeggings from hollister. my friend natalie said my size 5 were getting to loose bc i kept pulling them up. i didn't believe her until she brought me new ones. size 3.
WORKOUT: ran/jogged/walked 3 miles at memorial park. my body was not feeling it today bc it was so hot outside and i ran after work instead of before work. but i felt good about myself after i ran. i'm starting to walk taller and more confident again.
P90X (ab ripper) man oh man was that an ab workout! it hurt so good! seriously loved it.
breakfast- 2 hard boiled eggs without the yolk. this was fine for me bc i had coffee and it was easy but its really not enough for breakfast. i was in a hurry so i made my self grab the last 2 hard boiled eggs on my way out. and downed a bottle of water.
lunch- myoplex bar (cookies and cream) 25 g of protein /sugars- only 2 g/cal 260/ fat 8 g
i got these bc its hard to eat while at work so i can just eat this in between clients and it doesn't take long.
snacks- baby carrots, 2 hard boiled eggs no yolk.
dinner- (salad from jasons deli) mixed greens, tomatoes, cucumber, onions, mushroom. instead of dressing i used black beans and a scoop of low fat cottage cheese. DELISH! i was satisfied and full.

*Jacob is out of town so he is keeping up with his workouts daily:) so he say's:)

tuesdays work out.

i started the morning off with coffee, powdered cream and honey.

in the morning i did these

when she ran on the stairs i did running in place with my knees coming really high. i also did lunges.

later on after work i ran outside for a total of 10 min bc it had just rained and the mosquito's were insane!
so i decided to hit the gym with jacob.

my shins were hurting yesterday so i walked really fast at an incline of 15 at 4.1 speed. i worked my heart rate up pretty good by changing the incline.

then i hopped on the stair machine( i like real stair better) and worked out on  levels 5-8. this is where i thought i was going to die! i looked like i took a shower and i was standing there waiting for my towel! i love that feeling!

after this i worked on abs and arms until i couldn't do anything. i used free weights in my ab excercises too!

treadmill - 1 mile sprints at level 10 incline then switching inclines and walking.
circuit training (4)  weights..

breakfast- oatmeal with milk and sprinkle of salt
lunch- salmon in a can, horseraddish mustard, dill relish, hot peppers. (SO GOOD)
dinner- small cup of cereal multi grain cheerios
late night tv snacking
10 sunchips (garden salsa)
1/2 of a mini ice cream sandwhich. (i needed something sweet)

ON MY IPOD: click to see video's
get ur freak on (this is how i used to start every morning in my first apartment!) MY JAM!
party in the U.S.A. ( yes it's true) shhh!

that's not my name ( they are so fun to listen to and sing i love when i forget people are around me!)
hard- i would love to have her body! she is just so cool!

our meals today:
breakfast: eggs, red and green bell peppers, green onions, avacado slices, and hot sauce.
lunch: tuna, black beans, crushed dill pickles. (lil mayo) horse raddish
dinner: ground turkey, black beans, scallions (shallots), tony's, fresh garlic and sliced avocado.
oooh and steamed broccoli.
snacks: almonds

my workout: marimethod's yometrics. (38 minutes)
then i searched netflix and found this. 
so i completed a little over an hour today, i still wish i would have ran but i didn't. i will do so in the morning:)
jacob's workout: gym. blah. he ran on the treadmill and did weights.

accomplishment: i drank a ton of water today! it helped drinking out of the gallon. i'm just gonna keep refilling it.
we will take photo's tomorrow because today it was raining all day.

im trying to start a new habit...
doing pushups and crunches before bedtime. try this before bed each night. it won't take long.

todays playlist: 
surfer blood - swim
the sun- justice
dum dum girls- jail la la
the dead 60's- riot radio
dam funk- mirrors
then i listened to old school tunes and cd's made for me in 2000.

sunday. day 11

what i ate:
i had breakfast with my mom and sisters.
i ate a veggie omelette and coffee. no croissants :(
then i had a second cup. no cream. just honey.
i drank lots of water.
for lunch i had lemon turkey and rice with asparagus (from my fit foods) so yummy!
for dinner jacob made mashed sweet potatoes, black beans, and asparagus.
i was bad about snacking bc i was so busy. bad brandi!
i even had 2 glasses on red wine to end my day.
for my workout:
i decided to RUN to my moms house. (3 miles)
but in the middle of my run it started to storm. i don't mind the rain but my ipod does so i sprinted underneath an elementary school and decided this was the perfect place to complete my work out.
 i ran, i lunged, i fake jump roped, i squated, i did 40 pushups, i did all kinds of crunches, i jump skipped, i did jumping jacks, i stretched.... i just kept my heart rate up and going for a whole hour. when the rain died down i ran the rest of the way to my moms house. completely drenched with my sweat. it felt amazing!
so in 11 days i weighed myself and i'm at 129. that's 5 pounds lost. WOOOOOOOOOO! the healthy way rocks!

breakfast. egg whites, 1 yolk, bell pepper, red pepper, hot sauce.
snacks. almonds
lunch. turkey sandwhich on wheat. no mayo. mustard. lettuce. tomato. onions.
3 bottles of water so far...

today i had a legit excuse not to workout. it's that time of the month for me and it is complete HELL. but you know what aunt flo can't get the best of me anymore!!! after work today i went to the pool with natalie and justin while jacob went to the gym.

-i ran outside in the storm for 10 minutes. yes massive lightning and thunder, then i got a tad scared so i ran up and down the parking garage (4 floors) i sprinted hard going up the ramps and jogged the flat surfaces.
i did this twice.

-then i ran up and down the stairways. (4 times)

-after this i did walking lunges in natalie's hallway. i only did 60 today. then ran back and forth in the long hallways of the lofts.

-40 pushups (the girl kind, you know the ones with your knees down)

-abs: bicycles, scissors, regular crunches, elbow to knee side crunches. 3-5 minutes.

-i stretched good and hard. this is very important. get limber.

-then i sprinted down the stairs, through the storm and jumped in my car to move it so it wouldn't get stuck on the flooded street.

we are tired of making excuses why we can't work out or eat healthy.

there really is no excuse.
we have said:
"i dont have time." well wake up earlier and do it first thing.
"i can't afford a gym membership." you don't need one. you can watch videos online or go outside and start jogging! just start somewhere.
we started the fitness challenge over at mucho mucho bueno bueno and decided to give the whole challenge it's own blog.

so far we have been working out 10 days in a row and i feel amazing, i may not look amazing yet but the feeling is worth it!

Jacob -173 pounds/ 5'9" already lost 6 pounds
Brandi -130 pounds/ 5'3" already lost 4 pounds- i want to be stronger, leaner, and toned.
i don't want any rolls or cellulite. go away!

starting today we will share our work outs, photos, playlists, favorite work out gear and what we eat.

todays photo's.

our main problem area. our tummy's.
this morning i did 2 netflix videos just to change up my routine of running and working out outside. i did a 30 min video called CRUNCH and 15 minutes of a SELF video for your butt.
and i watched instantly, i didn't have to wait until they came in the mail.
i still plan on running 3 miles tonight after i get off work:)
my goal is to drink at least 8 glasses of water today.
i will post our meals tonight. i suggest keeping a food journal.
that way along the way you can see what you need to cut back on or it might make you think twice about eating it!
you don't have to go out and buy one. i made this one.
