Feliz Año Nuevo!

Happy New Year!!!!! I don't know about ya'll but I am accepting 2010 with open arms! I can't wait to start all over again and press "reset"

A lot of people are setting goals and Challenges and I decided to start one for myself and it is the Jillian 30 Day Challenge! Ya'll know how much I looooooove jil jil and why not do a challenge in ode to her lol. For 30 days I will either do one of her DVD's or her Wii Game. I set my "Resolution" for 6 months on her Wii game and it is the hardest one. I did my first scheduled workout ayer and it focused on my entire body and I burned 381 Calories in 40 minutes. What are your goals for 2010 or challenges?

Eats & Workouts

Ayer for lunch my sis, niece, and I ordered Chinese. I had Kung Pao Shrimp with brown rice and some of my sister's Orange Flavored Beef.

For din din we all went to my mom's house and she cooked a feast! Eggplant Casserole, Yuca Casserole, Rice Casserole, Ham, Potato Salad, and Shimp and Macaroni Salad. I brought a Carvel Ice Cream Cake for Dessert =).

New Year's eve was pretty low key this year which was fine by me because I was feeling under the weather. The evening consisted of us taking pictures and waiting patiently for the ball to drop.


This afternoon I woke up after 12 which is not like me at all but I guess I needed the rest. I had some leftovers from last night for lunch...Eggplant Casserole, Yuca Casserole, Rice Casserole, and Ham. I will be eating this again mañana lol.

I just worked out and did day 2 of my Resolution with Jillian's Wii Game. Today it was focused on abs and ouch did I feel it lol. I also decided to try out the Wii Step with the new Elevation that my sister got me and did 30 minutes with that.  I burned a total of 636 Calories in 75 minutes. Not a bad start for 2010

Hey have you guys heard of the Insanity Workout???( )

I have been thinking of getting it! What do you think?????

I guess I should go make din din =)

Happy New Year!!!!

  7. Apparently Jillian has some weight loss pill? I saw it on tv it looks kinda weird- I thought she was more about working out and eating right and less on the diet pill side...

    That cake seriously looks sooo good :)

  8. Amanda you should def do it! It will be nice to have someone to do this challenge with =)

    Sana, yea I have seen it and heard her speak of it on her radio show. It is supposed to be all natural etc...who knows

  9. I Really need to try some of these workouts you are always posting. I have them on Exercise TV too, which is free, but the Wii I'm sure is MUCH better! For now, I'm focusing on yoga. The more I do, the better.
