Clean and Press

Yesterday was a very interesting day at work. Our system was down ALL day, so the day was filled with "controlled" chaos. Needless to say when I got off work my 2 hour workout session at the KB gym was much MUCH needed.

This is my third week of Kettlebells and so far I have really enjoyed each workout. In case you were wondering here are the Benefits of Kettlebell Training for Women:

  1. Reduce body fat
  2. Firm entire upper body
  3. Firm entire lower body
  4. Improve core stability
  5. Improve balance and coordination
  6. Increase energy levels
  7. Increase bone density
  8. Improve circulation
  9. Improve sleep
  10. Increase self-esteem

Love #10!!

My favorite workout right now is the clean and press! Here is a little video from Youtube that shows you what this is.



Today I was craving some CEREAL! Because cereal never fills me up, I try and stick to cereal filled with protein and fiber.

My three choices:


The Cheerios are Hubby’s, but I had to try them they looked so good 😉 AND THEY WERE! Topped with blueberries.


Mixed in some Fage…now this should keep me full for a couple hours 😉


I am taking Chicken Tortilla Soup to group tonight so I am already busy in the kitchen! Last night I had to slow cook the chicken, so the whole house smells amazing!!! One tip to making crock pot meals is to always get everything out the night before. If it’s in the fridge put all the things you need together in a bowl, the less thinking in the morning the better!



Today’s Love Dare:

Whatever you put your time, energy, and
money into will become more important
to you. It’s hard to care for something
you are not investing in. Along with
restraining from negative comments,
buy your spouse something that says,
“I was thinking of you today.”

Question: Do you prefer cards that say how someone feels or actually hearing from them?
