This week I finally made a FB page for my new “business”. Oh man! Had such a hard time coming up with a name. I didn’t know if I wanted to use a part of my name, my kids name or what. Started thinking about vintage stuff and how most of the stuff that I see in the antique stores, I use to have in my childhood. I knew it had to be based on something from my childhood. One of the things that stands out the most is how I loved listening to my parents music. One of my fave was Tiny Dancer, so then I knew I had to use something with Tiny Dance. I love shabby chic stuff so started googling some names and decided to stick in Tiny Rustic Dancer. At first it was going to be Rustic Tiny Dancer, but my sister insisted on the other. Very happy with the support from friends and family. https://www.facebook.com/tinyrusticdancer You can check it out there. Soon I’ll have to update my blog to this.
I haven’t been keeping up with my fitness blog at all. I think my body needed a break after years of working out and the constant struggle of my weight fluctuating. I think for the first time since giving birth to Matthew, I just do not feel guilty for not working out. I am no longer obsessing about it. I will most likely start being more consistent, but I know my mind is in a different place. I have learned to accept my body no matter how it looks. My clothes are fitting tighter and some don’t even fit, but I’m ok with that. I have actually found a new hobby during the Summer, thanks to pinterest. I did a major clean up on my house during my summer break. I decided to paint a small stool which then lead to my dining room tables and a new hobby was born. I’ll post more pics tomorrow of all the stuff that I have painted and projects that are coming up!
Finished with day 3 today. Did Buti Tone 14. Hadn’t done that one in a long time!!! I think that’s the free one on vimeo: https://vimeo.com/45863823 Great workout and Bizzie is so strong in this one. I was dripping sweat and my shirt was pretty wet. Reminder not to wear a cotton shirt when I do Buti during the summer! It was sticking to me and it was gross! Yesterday for day 2 I did Buti Sculpt 13. Before I had a dread doing these Buti Sculpts but yesterday when I did it with my own music, I really liked it and I was super happy that I was done in under 25 min. Went to Zumba class in the afternoon so that is a bonus!!! Gotta get some extra cardio in and burn off this fat! Plan for tomorrow is Buti Sculpt 14. Have to decide what 3 songs I want to do that will motivate me.
I wasn’t planning to start this until July, but a friend has convince that right now is the time to do the Buti 30 day Slimdown. I think it is too. It can help me get back into in. It’s only Buti, but it also leaves enough room for me to do other things like take my Zumba classes and go to Hot Yoga. I know a month of Buti will get me strong too. I also want to do the sculpts. I’ll put my own music, I don’t care. I know they have a dread for me, but I have to try this. I already have the first day planned out. 30 min from waking up, drink my wake and shake which I will be doing since it really helps me not drink so much coffee. Went to the grocery store and I really feel lucky because I never expect my small town stores to have any of this stuff, but I’ve been finding tons of organic and grain/dairy free stuff at Dillons. I love it!!!! I bought Jay Robb’s Egg White Protein, my coconut juices. I was so upset a couple of months ago that Amazon cancelled the ONE coconut brand from the subscribe and save program. I subscribed to it again, but this time with ZICO. I hope its just as good. Got some organic spinach and veggies. I’m ready and excited. Oh and plus I start #mermaidyogi tomorrow. I haven’t tried to make a big deal, but I’m hoping I can also complete it.
I worked out all six days this week. For a moment I had to think what workout I did on Monday. Oh my! My brain is def not like it used to be. LOL! But I do know that in my calendar there is something marked there. Did a couple of Piyos, Buti and Zumba this week. Did a CLX workout. I think I did pretty good. I know that tomorrow will be the start of June. I’m excited. I’m always excited in June because I’m home. Honestly I’ve been home this whole week and I have been enjoying this break so much! Wish it was the first week all the time! I get up and instead of rushing to do my workout, I get to drink coffee and go over some things and then I workout. It is really nice. I get up as soon as Marvin leaves for work. This coming week, I plan to clean up a little bit more of my diet. I have been drinking soda again and it doesn’t take long for me to get into the habit. Boooo!!!! hate it. Anyways. I’ll be planning more of my schedule tomorrow. Don’t know which Buti’s to do this week.
I already returned the CLX set to my friend. It just wasn’t meant for me. I did not want to hurt my back again. I know I tried and I really like Chalean, but I could tell my back started to hurt after the workout. I don’t want to risk it. Guess I’ll go back to my regular routine for now and see how I do. I’m just really scared to hurt it again. It really sucks!!!
Yesterday I felt like crap all day! That’s what I get for eating too much on Memorial Day. I was even getting a fever last night so I did not end up going to Zumba. I really want to make it to a class! Today did a Piyo class on Youtube. It was good. I was pretty sweaty and it was just what I needed. Didn’t want to do so many plyos that are in Buti. I think both Piyo and Buti are similar. Piyo just doesn’t have all the hip circles ;) and buti popping! LOL!
A couple of days into CLX and I threw my back out. I was so upset!!! I had been on a major roll and then my back gets hurt again!!! I had to take two complete weeks off. I can still feel it a bit sometimes, but I know I gave it enough healing time. Maybe last time, I didn’t. I did go to Step Zumba a few days after but I felt my back hurting and so I was like no! Have to give it more rest. Bums me out because I love going to Zumba. Then had to try the new Buti 91 with Amanda. It was good and it left me sore for the next two days. Don’t know if it was because I hadn’t worked out in a while, but Buti doesn’t leave me sore anymore. I decided to not workout until my Summer vacay started so last Friday was my final day of work. Thurs was the last day with the kids. I am so ready for this summer to go extra good. No more slacking off. I gave my body the time it needs to recover. I am still planning to do CLX, but I may try it with bands instead of weights. I was picking up a weight when my back went out on me. I most likely did it improperly. I had also combined it with Buti. Maybe it was a bit too much for my body. I’m just hoping it doesn’t happen again this summer.
