Day 10

Good morning chiquitas!!!

I got some awesome news to share with you lovely ladies.... Today is day One-O or DAY 10 on Jillian's "Making the Cut" program!!! I'm have done 1/3 of the program and yes you guessed it I am pretty excited! One of my favorite bloggies, Jenna, has began Jillian's 30-day shred program and the Old Clothes Challenge. I am joining Jenna in her Old Clothes Challenge because when I am done with "Making the Cut" I hope to be getting back into some clothes I have been setting aside because they just didn't fit anymore. As crazy as this might sound, I am already seeing some results, overall my clothes are fitting a lot better and I am feeling good. No worry chicas when I am done with the program I will post some before and afters, I know how much we all love pics ;)

What makes you feel good in your skin?

What I have learned from this program is that it is not solely Jillian's kick-ass workouts that are doing the trick, but the diet is just as important as well.  Some might consider the diet to be "too extreme" but I haven't found it too difficult to follow. However, you do have to be ready to give up a lot of treats and alcohol. I know track my eats on a food journal and have become more conscious of the importance of portion control.

Now on to food and loads of cleaning!

A break from the cereal kick I have been on:

  • 1/2 cup of Oatmeal 
  • 1/2 tbsp of PB & Co.'s Bee's Knees 
  • 1/2 tbsp. Coconut Butter (yummy) 
  • 1/2 cup of Frozen Blueberries 

Love how the Blueberries turn my oatmeal purple!!!

*insert Cleaning, cleaning,cleaning!*

Lunch was quick and easy:

  •  LaTortilla Factory Quesadilla 
  • Black Bean Burger 
  • Hot Salsa 
It had been too long since I had my fix of MorningStar's Black Bean Burger... it is sooo goOd!!!

* insert Cleaning, Cleaning... MORE cleaning!*

What to do now that my room is spotless?....let's go to the gym :) Did Day 9 of Jillian's workouts and my legs feel like they are going to fall off!

After the workout I was hangry and after all the smoothie talk from yesterday's post I was craving one.

  • 1/2 cup of EAS 
  • 1/2 cup of Almond Milk 
  • 1 cup of mixed frozen berries 

Since yesterday I learned that Starbuck's fraps and coffees are some "unhealthy habits" you once had, figured that pouring my smoothie in my awesome Starbucks cup was very fitting for this healthy swap ;)

For dinner I took Rusty out for a belated b-day celebration! Since he was the b-day boy, he got to pick his place.... and it wasn't a surprising choice, haha. 

He loves a place where he can get something like this: 

What can I say he loves his wings! 

I got a grilled chicken salad with cranberry and walnuts: 

Hope you ladies are having an awesome week!!! 

Can you believe that Friday is a day way!!! Wooo HOO! 


  1. oh i love how good you are doing on this challenge! i have been feeling great since starting my weight training too-it does make you feel good in your skin :)
    great job girl!

  2. Wow, 1/3 of the way done, nice! A really hard workout where I give it my all always makes me feel good about myself.

  3. Congrats on the 1/3 mark and wonderful to hear you're feeling great! Yes, results require a good combination of healthy eating and exercise. That black bean burger looks yummy. Glad Rusty got exactly what he wanted for his birthday meal (thats what birthdays are for...doing exactly what you want :) :))

  4. Can you tell me more about the Jillian Michael's program? Sounds great

  5. I'm glad "Making the Cut" is going well! And I love that you used the Starbucks cup to drink your smoothie :D

    Nothing makes me feel better in my own skin then when I'm happy and confident (corny but true!)

  6. I always feel good after I go to Yoga!!

  7. Great work on the challenge!! I've never looked into the Shred, but with Jillian as the trainer, I'm sure it's tough!!

    I feel good in my skin after a great run...even though I'm all sweaty, I love feeling what my body can do!!

  8. Awesome job! I am so impressed that you are already 1/3 of the way through it. That seems like you just began the program. Crazy!

    It really is about the combination of food and exercise.. I am a firm believer in the 80% healthy and other 20 not healthy foods. Need a nice medium!
