Scrumptious Sundays!!!

Today I wanted to show you something that is honestly the most delicous form of apple on this planet.  I am not normally an apple person, why?  I have no idea, I have always been a banana kinda gal I guess lol.

But when I discovered these I have a new found love with my round green little nemesis.  In fact I can say that, if someone let me, eat these forever they are soooo good and they just make you drool.  Honestly whenever I see this bag of chips I feel like Pavlov's dog (however you spell his name), you know the one with the study on conditioning? 

My boys even love these and they HATE apples!  MMmmm they are even a good thing to add to a nice fresh summer salad for some contrast in flavor AND texture! 

So what are the numbers on our little friend??

That is pretty awesome!  Definitely something I could replace my sweet cravings with!!  Hope you all have a lovely and SCRUMPTIOUS SUNDAY!!!

new stats!!

I haven't been weighing myself since i've been so ill this last little while.  I know I have yet to still reply to some of your comments and the like I just barely have time to do anything and i've been really focusing on my main blog.  Making this one more of a bi-weekly blog that I will try to post on twice a week.  If I can make myself commit to twice a week I should be able to up it once I get used to that consistency. 

So without further ado I will release to you my stats!!!

WAS: 32.32 
NOW: 32.10

NOW: 87.4KG
LOSS OF: 0.6kg 

So I think that I can say that i'm happy with that, in fact happy enough since I have been ill and still managed to keep on track with everything.  Now I know it is slow going for me but I am again just constantly happy that I am continuing to loose.  It was soooo hard to even manage that before and here I am now!!  Closer and closer to never looking at the number 200 again!!!

Yoga Booty Ballet

~I was not approached by anyone to do this, it is completely on my own accord and all are my own thoughts and opinions~

For those of you who love to have fun and work up a sweat I have a new trend sweeping the nation, a class you might just LOVE!!

Skeptical, like myself??  I understand it sounds difficult and rather outside most peoples comfort zones... but so was zumba when it first came out, and pole dancing and look at how many of those classes are now offered all over north america!  

Yoga booty ballet is a "combination of yoga, ballet, and dance that focuses on having fun, getting sweaty, and gaining flexibility and lean muscles."  Something I could definitely dig my feet into.  Plus the dancing helps with your balance and rhythm!  I have discovered, recently, that I am no longer the dancer that I once was, this was great to get me back into it, help my body remember how to move flowingly, gracefully but still clearly give my body a great workout. 

They have so many different workouts, and for those of you on a budget like myself, you can find them, pretty much all of them, on YouTube!  This is one of my favs... one of those workouts I rarely get to do as I refuse to do it in front of the kids or my hubby lol.  So on days that hubby goes to work and I manage to get all the children to sleep at once is when i'll break out this one.  Luckily for me there are clearly less sexy workouts, i just love getting in touch with feeling sexy again, I rarely feel that way so every little bit of an ego boost helps!! 

I hope you are all having a lovely monday, maybe you can even squeak in this workout today!!
