I have to admit, I've been putting little to no effort into getting healthy these last few weeks.  I don't know what is wrong with me, but no matter how much I say "I'm going to get back on the wagon" I never really put forth the effort."  It's really sad.

I haven't really hula hooped more than once a week, my water weight has been trivial at best (we're talking 20-40oz a day) and my diet has been whatever I can find in the breakroom or whatever my coworker wants for lunch.  What the hell is wrong with me?

Oh well, I guess as soon as I recover from having my tooth pulled (I'm on heavy painkillers and antibiotics for the week-blah.) I'll have to put more effort into it.  I have no energy.  Yuck.

How are you all doing on your goals?

What is wrong with me?
I didn't post here all week! 

I didn't weigh myself.
Watch my food intake.
Drink water.

I suck big time.

I'm eating some of this right now:


Next week-I've got this.

Workout Song of the Week

This song is high energy and super fun to work out hard to.  Plus it's catchy, so I have to sing along while I do it! :) At least if you're singing while you work out you know your body is getting enough oxygen.  It's a good way to tell!

Avocados Make Me Happy

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hass Avocado Board featuring Hass Avocados for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Of all the fruits and vegetables out there, Avocados are one of the most amazing and versatile things you can eat.  There have been many occasions where the roommate and I have referred to them as "orgasmic" and often made special trips to the store just for some . 


Avocados are one of my all time favorite things to eat, whether I'm simply dashing a little salt on them and eating them alone, mashing them into a fantastic guacamole (lime being another of my favorites, especially with guac) or slicing them up to add to a tomato sandwich.  I even have a vegetarian friend who always orders avocados as a replacement for meat on sandwiches and other things when we're out to eat.  They're hearty and tasty too!

Not to mention, in my quest for being a health nut, avocados are a huge source of good fats and one medium avocado has nearly 100 vitamins and minerals, making it a nutrient dense food choice.  Plus, over 75% of the fat in these lovely taste explosions is unsaturated-so they're a great substitute for fatty foods!

Hass Avocados is hosting a Kick Off with Hass Avocados Recipe Contest where you can submit your favorite avocado recipes for a chance to win a trip for 4 to the Rose Bowl Game®.

The grand prize includes: Round trip airfare, hotel accommodations, participation in a Rose Bowl Game® Welcome Reception, admission to the “behind-the-scene” Rose Bowl Parade® decorating site, sightseeing tour of Pasadena, admission to the Rose Bowl Game® on January 2. 2012 + more!

There are 2 ways to participate:

  1. A weekly sweepstakes where we will give away a box of avocados for 14 consecutive weeks!
  2. A Recipe Contest where the winner will win a trip to the Rose Bowl Game®!

30 finalists will be selected and judged on:

  • Use of Hass Avocados in recipe – 25%
  • Photo quality and image appeal– 25%
  • Creativity – 25%
  • Relevance – 25%.

Those 30 finalists and their recipes will then be voted on by the public, and the grand prize winner will be chosen by which recipe has the greatest number of votes!

Check out Hass Avocados for tailgating tips and recipes and feel free to sign up to receive free emails with recipe ideas and nutrition information. You’ll get loaded up with great ideas once a month.

Now excuse me, I have to go buy some Hass Avocados now... I have a craving I have to fill.

Water: Want vs. Need

Why is this so hard for me again?
I was doing so well but now I suck at drinking water!

Is anyone on Fitocracy yet?
If so, add me! :)

If you don't know what Fitocracy is, you should check it out.
It's a social network for getting in shape.

I'm part of a group for work, a hula hoop group, and a geek group.
It's just kind of a fun twist to the getting healthy thing.

Leave me your email if you want an invite. :)

Get Messy

How true is that?
Yeah go ahead and feel sexy after.
But it should be sexy with messy hair and dripping in sweat.
That's how you know you've done something right. :)

Go out there and get messy ladies.
We can do this!

Workout Song of the Week

This week's song:

Show Me How You Burlesque

Fat Ass Friday

No, I didn't weight myself today.  But I couldn't bring myself to.  

I've been slacking so much, and I while I looked in the mirror and thought I looked lovely last night-my opnion changed when I looked at my body.  I've been eating crap food (gasp-even soda now and again) and not exercising or hula hooping. 

I am NOT going down this road again..
I am not going to give in to my laziness anymore.

I'm not going to let myself feel bad because I put on another 10 lbs and it was all my fault for not getting out there and working for what I want.  I won't have it.

Time to turn things around!
Time to get back on the wagon.

Who uses Fitocracy?
If anyone has an extra, I'd LOVE an invite.
Thanks Ashley!
I've heard good things, and that it has a Hooping group.
Goals for this week:
  • Juice Cleanse all week.
  • Hula hoop every day.
  • Get up early enough to exercise in the mornings now that it's cooler.
You should check out:
  • Kas Fitness is hosting a Clean Eating Challenge on FB.  Come join us!
  • My good friend Ashlee recommended My Body Gallery.  I'm not sure I understand it just yet, but I think the point is to show and be proud of all body types.  Real women, y'know?
  • Heather at Wellness Without Pity recommended Vision Boards.  I think these are a fabulous idea and have been thinking of doing it for a while.  I'll post the results when I'm done, but for now read her post!
 How is your progress coming along?
