Legally High

Remember in Legally Blonde when she says "Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people don't shoot their husbands. They just don't!" ?? Ok, I am admitting publicly that I actually like that movie. I am now an endorphin euphoria believer! After the gym today, The somber mood I was in this morning along with all my stress has melted from my body.

Fitness-I did 30 minutes on Joan of Arc today, another 20 minutes on Treddy, followed by a great booty workout including squats, lunges and abs. I burned 360 calories and clock 2 more miles toward my January challenge goal. I was a maniac in the gym today. BTW, if you have access to a fitness ball, you MUST TRY THIS EXERCISE! At first, I thought it too easy to accomplish anything, but my bottom is still burning from it :)

Health-My new restriction is definitely helping today as well. For breakfast I had a handful of almonds and I was full for about 3 hours, and that's including my workout. For lunch I had 3 oz of leftover Salmon I cooked last night and now I have a nice full feeling. From 3 freaking ounces!! I cannot believe that!

Family-I bought tickets to Walking with Dinosaurs for this weekend. I have heard really good things about this show and the kids are very excited about going.

Happy TGIF everyone!
Week 2, day 7 of my 12 week challenge to loose 1/2 my weight for our Hawaiian cruise!


  1. LOVE those endorphins! (And the Legally Blonde line - LOL). I am exercising every day now partly because I know I will be in a good mood for the rest of the day!

    As for the ball workout - in Pilates today the instructor did ONLY ball stuff for the entire one hour class! SO hard!

    And I too just had 3 oz of tuna for lunch - totally full! Your restriction sounds great!

  2. YAY I found your blog !!!
    I TOTALLY get you on this..there are days when I'm like " man I feel like crap..maybe I should skip hte gym ?" But I push myself and go and afterwards it's a totally different person walking back to the office.

    Hawaiian cruise ? Man I am so jealous ( in a totally good way!)
