Weekends in Lousiana

*This is a day late due to WordPress Mobile Technical Difficulties*

 

I spent my weekend in Louisiana.

It was a good one. I got to spend some quality time with my new boyfriend (Yes, ya’ll finally). I decided to take vacation on Friday so I would have time to get my hair done (2-week ritual), and drive up early. I learned that from my last visit that a turn around vacation isn’t ideal.It rained so hard the entire time I was on the road. I got there and we went to the gym, Friday was my rest day so I just did 30 minutes of slow cardio on the elliptical, and we spent the rest of our time inside thanks to the rain and watched movies and caught up.

Saturday was better,

We continued to watch movies, relax and went to the gym and rocked out our shoulders and abs. Reverse crunches, 150 twists on a gym ball, and 40 mins of cardio will have you spent! I think I took a nap and spent some QT with my dog and my guy.

Sunday was beautiful! I woke up early to finish some of my homework and other things that were due for school for about a good hour and a half and after that we took Gizmo for a walk. I spotted the pool, and we went back in the house to watch football, and then we went to the pool. Let’s just say I acted up! Cartwheels, jumps, dancing and funny poses you name it. It was fun. We then went back to the house so I could pack up and head home :-(. Long distance sucks but it can be done! We are working on it 😉

Today’s back and biceps workout will include:

  • 20 mins cardio (will do at home) 
  • Reverse Grip Pull downs
  • Bent Over Barbell Rows
  • Hypertensions
  • Straight Arm Pull Downs
  • Concentration Curls
  • Dumbbell Alternate Curls
  • Cable Curls
  • 20 min cardio(will do at home) 
  • 150 twists

 

My triceps are sore from 3 days ago, but I will be okay. I got this work out from Bodybuilding.com Kris Gethins 12 week program. I am 5 days in and I feel great.

Goodbye 2012, Hello 2013

Well,

2012 was an absolute blast!!!! I can really say that genuinely I got to bond with my best girlfriends, I almost bought a house, I traveled, I learned even more to appreciate my family, I grew closer with both of my sisters, I also found out there are limits to friendships and who you circle yourself around, and that I am really loved. That was the best gift of all!

This year will be just as great, and even if it isn’t I know there is a life lesson in it. I have new fitness goals, I have new life goals, and career goals I feel need to be accomplished this year. I know I can achieve all of them, and with my support system I have now, I know I can succeed.

Here are some pics of my New Years.

Me and my cousin Rosa.

I hope everyone else had a great New Years!
