I Am Strong!

Hello my loves!!!!!  I have been up since 4:20 in the morning and I feel amazing! Today was my first IntenSati Warrior Challenge class and it was FA-BU-LOUS!!!!!! Our instructor Natalia was better than any cup of coffee I ever had! She was “on” the whole time and I loved that she came around the room and involved people…every so often she would yell out someone’s name and they would have to yell out the affirmation. I was tired and sweaty but felt like I could conquer the world by the end of the class…when Natalia gave me my bracelet, she said “You are awake now!” and boy was I. I am happy that for the Month of July, the theme of the class will be “Independence”, especially since my birthday is this month and I am ALL about being an Independent WOMAN! In the theme of Independence, during the class we got to do our own freestyle dance, basically anything we wanted to do so Missy and I just looked at each other and jumped around lol…I can’t wait for my next class this weekend!

I will Celebrate July 4th by celebrating MY INDEPENDENCE!


Eats & Workouts

The last time we spoke, I was heading over to see my family but first I decided to have lunch…Unfortunately my body wanted breakfast instead, so I went with it…

Oat bran with Cinnamon, Splenda, Blueberries, and Peanut Butter


Later in the evening, I went to Pizza Hut with mi familia and I got a Veggie Lovers Personal Pan Pizza



Ayer I woke up and did a Quick workout because I had to go to the River Fund for a conference call at 8 AM. I ended up doing the cardio section of my Women’s Health DVD

I refueled with a Green Monster made with Spinach, Strawberries, LMM, FF Milk, Coffee, and Splenda


For Lunch I had a Tofu Salad (Tofu, Laughing Cow French Onion Wedge, Garlic, Hot Sauce, and Honey Mustard) and Lettuce on a Nature’s Pride WW Bun


For Dinner I mad myself a Salad with Lettuce, Tomato, Onion, Pepper, 2% String Cheese, Black Bean Burger, and my Mayo and Ketchup Combo (gross to some but great to me)


I was still hungry so I had a Chocolate and Banana Protein Muffin


but I was STILL hungry and Rainbow Cookie Ice


that must have hit the spot because I knocked out on the couch at 8 PM! Which worked for me since I had to get up today at 4:20 lol.


This morning after my class and a looooooong commute home (so worth it) I had a Green Monster made with Spinach, cup of Blueberries, Coffee, cup of FF Milk, Zico Passion Fruit Coconut Water, LMM, and Splenda


I decided to make today another Green Monster Day! After getting back from taking Koko to the Dog Groomer, I had another one…this time with Spinach, Banana, cup of FF Milk, TBSP Peanut Butter, LMM, and Splenda


A couple of you guys thought that having Green Monsters for the whole day, would not be enough calories for me but mine range from 300-450 Calories…and could actually be more if I decided to use more Protein Powder. Thank you though for always looking out for me! Love you chicas!!!!!!

In the spirit of independence, here is one my favorite Sex And The City Quotes….

“Maybe some women aren't meant to be tamed. Maybe they just need to run free until they find someone just as wild to run with them.” – Carrie Bradshaw



  1. So glad you enjoyed the class! I would have loved seeing the dances people were doing because I love for people watching!

    I know you take care of yourself- green monsters have lots of healthy stuff in them.

  2. wow that glass sounds awesome!! and YAY FOR GREEN MONSTAS! girlfriend you eat what you want sista!! LOVE your smoothie combos!

  3. Good for you getting up so early and working out! Sounds like a great way to ditch the coffee. That tofu salad sounds great too!

  4. Getting up before 5 am for a workout? Woo-hoo! I know, I'm one of the psycho-early-morning workout people, so I get excited when I see others being crazy like me, haha.

    And yeah, green monsters can be plenty to get you through the day. I throw in protein powder, peanut butter and maybe even some oats and I've got a full course meal in a glass!

  5. im glad you like the intensati workouits! the instructor sounds awesome! sometimes a morning workout will wake me up WAY more than any cup of coffee you said it!

    damnn you are a smoothie queen! i like them but not for every meal LOL I would rather have those protein muffins with PB :)

  6. you rock on girl. love the quote!

  7. you rock on girl. love the quote!

  8. Can I say amen to Carrie Bradshaw and her quote or is that totally inappropriate?

  9. What is LMM? I have tried to figure it out, but I give up!


  10. I LOVE that carrie quote! It makes me feel so uplifted and just so much better about my single status.

    When's your birthday? Let's go out and have some fun! Followed by cake at my place of course!

    That intensati class sounds awesome! Go independent women!

  11. You are going to turn into a Green Monster one of these days. Not that there is anything wrong with that. We'd still love you! You'd be a very gorgeous green monster.

    I love your tofu salad sandwich. That actually sounds.....good! Good tofu? What?!
