What a great night!

Music is my escape…there is a song for every mood. I absolutely love going to concerts. Last night was an amazing night! I saw Bon Jovi at the United Center and it was one of his best shows! bonjovi-042718-03The crowd was electrified; singing and dancing with every song! (The people watching…just wow!) He even came into the crowd and sang two songs!! Can you imagine that??? So cool!!

It was a well-deserved night after going to the doctors the day before…yep…I’m back in the boot. Ugh. He didn’t like all the swelling and the continued pain I was in. He is worried it will delay my recovery if I don’t keep it immobile. Two steps forward and one step back. He told me to be patient…I did laugh out loud with that one. Ugh…it will never end. Anyways, I have several more concerts I’m going to this summer…ending my summer with Pearl Jam at Wrigley!!!!! Whoop! ❤️

Enjoy your Friday!!

Peace ✌🏼

Obsessed!

I have become OBSESSED with a couple of things lately. I have gone full-blown, all in on working out lately. I finished the #21dayfix and absolutely loved it. It is a great full-body workout. It really is!  I recently discovered a different program that I have become obsessed with…truly obsessed. It’s called #PiYo. AMAZING!!! It is a combination of low impact cardio, yoga, and Pilates. Now I know…low impact cardio…big deal.  Yoga…no problem. Pilates…got it!  All easy…all good. Boy was I wrong. I am DRIPPING sweat after every workout. I mean soaked…oz always tries to lick me afterwards. He caught me one day as I was trying to take a picture of us together…right on the ear 😜 Goofy boy! 💕

I am also becoming more flexible which I was struggling with lately. It makes me feel so good afterwards! PiYo rocks!  Someone recently told me I am losing too much weight; which really worried me because that wasn’t my goal for working out. My goal was to improve my health and become stronger and more toned. My scale is broken so I had no way of knowing what I weighed. I did notice my clothes are fitting  looser and I was able to get a size smaller in a pair of jeans so I thought…maybe I have lost too much weight. I am working out 5/6 days a week…so maybe. Nope. I had a doctor’s appointment on Friday and I have only lost 1 pound. That’s it! BUT I am stronger and leaner so it looks like I lost all this weight. Just proves you can’t go by what the scale tells you. You have to go by how you feel and how your clothes fit you…not just the number glaring at you as you step on the scale. I feel awesome!  I can’t wait to continue to use this program. I am determined to get all the moves without modification. Some are hard as hell but I will get it!  When I do, I will post a video of me doing some! (Or maybe one of my epic fails…hey atleast I’m trying!)

My second obsession…music. Which I know…isn’t new to me. I have always loved music. I am just a little obsessed with listening to music all the time now. It’s my escape (besides working out). I am discovering new music and believe it or not…even country music. 😳 I know…shocked me too! I love LOVE this new song called Setting The World on Fire by Kenney Chesney and P!NK. I have always loved her and this song does not disappoint! Just awesome!!! Here is the link to the song…you gotta check it out!

It’s late…until next time!

Update: I did #PiYo strength intervals today and nailed one move I have been struggling with-kept falling after one rep.  In the routine you have to go back and forth alternating which way you twist and then extend the leg.  Today I did the entire sequence without falling or stopping! Boom! 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼 Yes, I am dripping sweat…it’s one hell of a workout!
