Me and Keira Knightly

So far, today has been pretty excellent. The nice FedEx man came and delivered wine.

(I’m pretty sure I creeped him out- I answered the door in my flannel pj’s with a muffin in my mouth)

Tyler and I had gone to Sonoma last October and visited Foppoli Wines. We signed up for their mailing list and this is our second shipment so far. It is so delicious!

Before I began my Wednesday sweat session, I decided to do my best Keira Knightly shoulder pose. Don’t we look identical?


Then, I got my workout on.

In-10-se workout

(get it? Intense, but with a 10 in it? Haha, I crack myself up)

6 minute warmup:

  • 1 min jumping jacks
  • 1 min jog in place
  • 1 min jump rope

2 times through.

The following can be done 3 times through  with 30 seconds of cardio in between each for an intense 30 minute workout:

  • 10 squats with lateral leg raise (each leg)
  • 10 lunged with front kick (each leg)

30 sec cardio

  • 10 pushups
  • 10 back extensions

30 sec cardio

  • 10 single leg squat (each leg)
  • curtsy lunges (each leg)

30 sec cardio

  • 10 tricep dips
  • 10 incline pushups

1 min cardio

Let me tell you, I was SWEATY. Bad idea that I took Layla for a walk after that. My sweat cooled down and I was fa-REE-zing.

Lots more to do today…and I am already wiped!

Protein muffins…and stuff

Hidy ho, Winslow! (or whatever your name is)


Before I start, lemme just show you my bangin’ word on Words with Friends (sorry Steph! 😉 )


BOOM. 102 points.

Bfast this morning was a batch of chocolate strawberry protein muffins. I got the idea from meals & moves. I substituted vanilla protein powder for chocolate, used all plain nonfat Greek yogurt and strawberries instead of peaches. They turned out pretty good!


That’s my fancy schmancy collage of muffins. Mmm. A couple of those, a pot of coffee, and a gallon of water and I’m good to go for the day!

I’ve already used the three products that I bought from The Body Shop yesterday and I love each one of them.

First, I got coconut body butter.

I now smell like Hawaii and that makes me happy.

Second, perfume.

It’s a musk, which I never go for, but this one I loved. I now smell like a lady instead of a girl who just walked through the Pink section of Victoria’s Secret.

Last, a face wash.

I was hesitant to buy it because I have been a Neutrogena girl since age 0, but this one exfoliates and leaves my face with a nice, soft glow. I highly recommend!

It is a little rainy here, but I am manning up and taking the pup for a walk. Perhaps a good workout will come to me while we’re out!
