Not as crazy as you think..... or am I????

Looking at my last blog post, I'm sure I've frightened a few of you Dear Readers away. Crazy times, crazy parties, lots of booze. Rockstar status baby. Oh yeah.

Yeah right, I wish.

Those were the highlights of my year. The few times (*note: once a month or every few months) that we actually went out with ACTUAL people!!! I'm sure that many of you can relate to moving to a foreign country... and well, finding like-minded people can be a bit difficult. And when you're fully tattooed in a conservative country... it is not an easy feat! I've spent these last two years kinda being depressed about it and this year, I'm DONE. I've been so worried about what has been going on around me... I haven't done anything to BENEFIT me.

Remember last year, before I turned the big 3-0, that I swore to lose the weight and wear a bathing suit? Yeah... while the dirty thirty was an AMAZING trip that I will never ever ever forget... I hardly took off the pounds.
*Amsterdam 2010 with wonderful friends!

So that's it. I'm done. 2011 will be a turn around year, whether it kills me or not.

And damn it. It just might.

Hubby is off in Milan this week. He's off tattooing with some really amazing artists in Italia... and I'm home with the kids. Bummed, you might say?
Not at all. Without little hubby here, I got the opportunity to get started on my NEW, actually, I've had it for a year. :S Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred dvd.

And this CRAZY lady has been kicking my ass. After the first day, I just about gave up. It's ONLY a 20 minute workout... and I nearly fell over even after doing the WEENIE versions!!! I might have even skipped some of the cheater version push ups and the jumprope! I might have well been on the Biggest Loser!!!

I began last Wednesday....and so while it's ONLY been 4 days.... Level 1 has become ACTUALLY tolerable. Although I've heard LvL 2 is INSANE, I'm soooo gung-ho to finish this DVD. The only thing standing in my way, I will admit, is hubby. When he comes back, I don't know if I'll be comfortable sweating profusely, bouncing around like an 80's workout video, nearly crying on the floor, in front of the man I want to see me as SEXY. HA! So, if I quit, you know why.

Nevertheless, I took my measurements and slightly embarrassed, here they are:

Bust: 38
Under: 31
Waist: 30.5
Hips (here's the big one): 42!
Thigh: 24
Arms: 11

So there you go. Now you know all my intimate secrets. What's my weight? I"m not sure. My scale is defective. But oddly, after doing this exercise the last week and eating healthier, it's gone UP 3 pounds. I'm confused, but I'm not gonna let that hold me down.

Full Speed Ahead!!!!

or at least till hubby gets back!

OMG - isn't this funny that I was just thinking about doing my measurements for myself just the other day? You have NADA to worry about amiga, you look fantastic. I'm not just saying that either!!!

OH and you probably have gained a few pounds...muscle mass!!! So that's a realllly good thing!!!!

I'm going to be 30 this year and already FREAKING out!! I'm planning a trip for my bday too!!!

Anyways, Jillian is awesome - good luck!!!

I've looked through your photos and unless you are photoshopping yourself slimmer - you look wonderful to me. I don't think you need to lose any weight. Eating healthy and being fit is a great aspiration - I too have had the same video for quite a few months collecting dust. My friend, however, swears by it, raves about it - so perhaps you too, will be my inspiration. Or I can just be a typing cheerleader on the side! ha ha

I see you've completed this and are feeling great! I've been doing it sporadically here and there...I need to get my shit together and full tilt boogie get on it...The first time I did the whole thing I wept, no lie! Then I sort of lost interest because I couldn't move my body...

I got on the band wagon again about a month ago, and like I said, I don't do it every day, but three times a week is pretty normal for me, and now I even do the cool feel so proud of yourself, all panting like a dog, sweating like a pig and screaming like a mad woman in agony, right? Oh, it's just me...?

Cool, cool...

Again, congrats on finishing the 30 days, you've inspired me!!!! here I go!

About Me

My photo
I've been living in Mexico now for about a two years with my hubby and 2 kids. Not exactly by choice, but we're here nonetheless. Luckily, I live with quite a few of the accomodations that i was used to in the states. In spite of those convienences, we also have a water tank with asbestos, outdated electricity, massive amounts of dust, caterpillars that burn your skin, and thousands of windshield washers on every street corner. My kiddos and I are learning to speak spanish and adjust to life away from our family and friends in the States.
