PSD v. 1.2: Day 1


Need to clean this mirror. *lol*

As I indicated in The Big 4-0, yesterday, Project Scale Down is back in effect. Since the first project wasn’t entirely successful as I missed two days, didn’t eat the best and completely fell off the wagon once the 28 days were done, I’m calling this Project Scale Down Version 1.2 aka PSD v. 1.2 ;).

For each of the next 28 days, I will do at least 20 minutes of exercise. I was inspired by Chy’sCurlz, who has continued to maintain a daily workout schedule , increasing the stakes from 10 to 20 minutes of activity a day. Again, I will be training with kettlebells, treadmill and the Brazil Butt Lift (BBL) DVD series. I’ve also added a few other DVDs to the workout library: The Biggest Loser Cardio Max, Jillian Micheals Ripped in 30 (which I haven’t even opened yet) and Kathy Smith’s Cardio-Kickboxing.

As I mentioned yesterday, I will post when I complete my workout each day on the wall of our 28 Day Workout Challenge Facebook group. I’ll probably limit the posts on here to weekly or bi-weekly unless a lot of you indicate that you like to see them here every day.

But, I am posting Day One, so that you know that I did get it started:)!

Day 1:

  • 10 minute Abs of Steel routine.
  • 28 minute, low to medium intensity Cardio Axe/BBL routine.

Now it’s 3 pm and time to hit the shower (ya think?) and then the grocery store to pick up the rest of the ingredients I’ll need for that green smoothie!

Lata Gatas!!


4 Minute Metabolism Boosting Workout


A friend posted this video on Facebook today and given that I’m trying to get back on my fitness grind, thought I’d share it! It’s not enough to meet my 20 minute a day quota, but would be a great way to get going in the morning and can be applied towards the daily goal! Plus, a four minute routine that boosts the metabolism for 36 hours thereafter? That’s a win/win!

It’s Here! It’s FINALLY ALMOST Here!!


Saw this on Bryan Konietzko’s Tumblr on Wednesday! Then headed on over to one of my favorite, All-Things-Avatar sites, AvatarSpirit.net and learned that The Legend of Korra debuts on Nickelodeon on Saturday, April 14th at 11 a.m.!!! Aaaaannnnnnd, I checked out a couple new video clips on the Korra Nation Tumblr, including this cute one of a young and talented Korra!

Sharing is caring!! *lol*
