Rosey Rose Cupcakes!

These are come cupcakes I made recently for a hospital bake sale to benefit one of the nurses who has breast cancer.  They were a big hit!  They are delicious french vanilla with buttercream icing!  Walmart so generously donated the perfect little plastic containers.  I made the pink little ribbons and glued on some cute little rhinestones.  I am happy to say they all sold!  3$ apiece!

Im Back!

Alright ladies and gents, I am officially back!  Took a brief (or long) intermission while I have been getting use to a new job and schedule.  Needless to say my P90X schedule also suffered.  But I am pleased to report that I have now altogether lost 40lbs.  And I am only 10lbs away from my goal weight.  So I can't complain.  As for my blog, I am undecided on what my next endeavor will be.  It may just turn into my own random ramblings and things I think are interesting..  I also have new cupcakes to show you all!  Thanks for reading!  Now I need to go get uptodate on all of your blogs!

Okay, Sooo I am sad.

So today was my weigh and measure day.  And I am a little discouraged.  I need a little encouragement from you guys.
I weighed today exactly what I weighed when I started this week. 
And I measured and I am exactly the same everywhere except for my thigh, which guess what? I actually gained an inch.   Now I have heard of not losing weight, because you gain muscle.  But to not lose inchs either? And actually gain one?  That just stinks.  So anyways, I am discouraged today.

Day 4, 5, 6 - YogaX, Legs & Back + Ab Ripper, KenpoX

Alright, sorry I havn't been able to update the last few days, but I can assure you, I HAVE been doing my workouts, so YAY!  Now as far as the weight goes, I have fluctuated a little higher, like back to 159-160.  But thats okay! Yesterday I ate horrible, I'm not gonna lie.  My boss bought food for the office and I am not one to turn down a free meal :) Then after work, I went to a baby shower so of course I had a piece of cake :/
   But I am back on track today!  With the exception of discovering how amazing hersheys peppermint kisses are.  But I only had a few :)
   So lets start with yoga.  WOW.  This workout was insane.  AN HOUR AND A HALF!!!  When I first saw the time I was like, you gotta be kidding.  But I managed through the whole workout, with no pauses.  I'm sure I did a lot of the moves a little less than professional but I'm learning!  My advice on this workout is, the first 45 minutes are the devil!  You do that stupid vinyasa so many times....I was frustrated more than anything.  I was so tired of runners pose and downward dog, I was ready to quit.  But literally 45 minutes into the workout, It changes.  And it gets a little easier.  And let me tell you, whenever you finish, you will feel like heaven!  All your muscles are stretched and warm, you feel like jello LOL I noticed also, the last 15 minutes, I felt like I could have laid down on my mat and gone to sleep.  It was so relaxing.  Almost too relaxing.  A couple of times when he has you close your eyes...I almost nodded off.
   Next was Legs + Back.   Now I actually really liked this one.  It was super intense and made me sweat more than I ever have with these workouts.  I think it may be because I am much stronger with my legs so I felt like I could do much much more.
   The KenpoX workout has to be my favorite!! It goes by faster than any workout I have EVER done, its fun and fast moving.  It's hardwork but you actually feel like you are in a fun kick boxing class or something, instead of doing like regular crunches, or squats.  It's a very nice change for sure.
    Now tomorrow is the big day!  I am going to weight and measure myself and see what progress I have made after week 1!  I am trying to be realistic but I really really hope I see a little change.
   Whoohoo! And now time to catch up on what you guys have been doing and posted, thanks for reading!

Day 3 - P90X - Shoulders and Arms+ Ab RipperX

Welcome to my day three!
Starting weight - 161.6
Today's weight - 158.4
Yay! I am officially in the 150s! Lets have a one minute dance party! :)
Okay, today I did the shoulder and arms and ab ripper x.
I really need to get some heavier weights because I feel like a lot of exercises were way too easy. So I will put that on my to do list, buy more weights. Now the ab ripper x was amazing! And by amazing I mean super painful. Lol
It was high paced and super intense, but it's nice because it only lasts 15 minutes. Thank you everyone for all your comments and encouragement! Sorry this isn't more detailed but I am updating from my phone so it's a little more difficult.
All in all I think today was awesome, I felt good, I did my workout, and I felt thinner :) tomorrow I will give a much more detailed report! Thanks for reading!

Day 2 - P90X - CardioX

Starting weight - 161.6
My weight today was - 160!
(I realize it's just water weight but I am so excited to get below 160 finally!! So close!)

        Alrighty, well all I can say is OUCH.  As I layed down to go to sleep last night I wanted to just stay in my cozy blankets and never move again.  I am SO SORE.  And not just one area, my entire body.  All over soreness. LOL But you know what? It makes me feel like I did a good job.  And I know it's only my second day but I truly felt great today.  I felt slim and not bloated and just very..good.  But honestly, the thought of enduring more P90X on top of my soreness wanted to make me fall on the floor.  BUT with a little inspiration from reading kkazzamm's blog ( ), and knowing that I owed a good review to all of my loyal readers...
And in the answer to honkhonkpt's question, I plan to update my weight everyday at the top of each post, and I will post my measurements once a week.  Maybe, JUST maybe at the end I will post before and after pictures. :)
So here is my review of day 2!
Today was my CardioX;
This DVD is kind of difficult to review each exercise because it's so varied, it combines yoga, kenpo, and plyometrics. At the beginning is a lot of yoga poses, which at first I'm thinking, okay this isn't going to be so hard.  But by the time I do my third "vinyasa" my mind was very much changed. That is tough work! It makes me a little scared to do the YogaX DVD I have coming up.  The kenpo part is really fun, throwing punches and kickboxing.  I would love it even more if I could devote all my focus to doing the exercises right instead of worrying soft landings because of the bagface who lives underneath me complaining about noise.  Anyways
I think that is all I will be posting for now, I really need to read up on all of your blogs!  
Until tomorrow! Thanks for reading!
