Monday Schmonday

I hate Monday’s. I am always so tired from the busy weekend. I again forgot to weigh myself but that is okay. Scale doesn’t matter as long as I know I did my best and feel good about it.

Tonight I am going to try to go to Target and get a Walk Away the Pounds kit. Anyone recommend one to get? This way I can do them at home and Cooper can do it with me if he wants.

Well that is it for me. Just going to keep on keeping on this week. Work has been super busy and my days just fly by. Speaking of which I need to get at it.

Here is what ya came for.. enjoy

  1. Those look YUM!!! I ended up getting Leslie Sansone’s 5 mile bootcamp. She adds in resistance bands to do some arm and upper body work as well!

    I hope you have a great week, love!

    Miss you around!!!

  2. mmm those look good…and only 100cals, I am adding this to my shopping list for later!

    I got Leslie’s ultimate collection, which was one dvd with a 1, 2, 3, or 4 miles walk w/ resistance band…got it at target for around $10 or $15 dollars. I like being able to choose if I walk a short walk or a longer one.

  3. Oh My! why in the world would you tease us like that? My life is so much better off blissfully ignorant of all the delicious non-diet foods out there!

    haha! Thanks for the recipe – I am flagging it for later (like thanksgiving/xmas… perfect pumkin time)

  4. I like the Walk DVDs that have multiple options for walks. That way if you’re having a tired day you can do a 2 mile but on an awesome day you can do a 4 or 5 mile. I’ve heard the weighted gloves are awesome from others but haven’t tried them myself. Oooh, let us know what you got when you get it!

  5. I was NOT expecting that. Those look sooo good. And I’m full from lunch! I have Leslie’s mini walks, 2 mile, 3 mile and 4 mile Super Walks. Can’t speak for anything else, but I’m certain that, regardless of what you buy, you’ll be happy with it. Leslie has a wonderful personality and she has this energy that is really motivating.

  6. Those brownies sound awesome! I have the Walk Away the Pounds ultimate collection. 4 workouts on one DVD. Gives me options. It’s a great workout to squeeze when life is hectic.

    Hope you’re having a good week!!! Hugs!
