Triple F

That's what me and Valeria call ourselves.. It stands for Fit, Fierce and FABULOUS!! We have been recently addicted to the gym. A way to get our fit on! We started at the beginning of December and have been hooked! I even drew out a workout sheet with little stick figures mimicking the exercises.. I'll have to post it one day, it's quite funny.

I had a lot of reasons for getting back into the gym world. One being because I gained 20 pounds when Joseph was deployed.. Yes, you heard that right, 20 pounds in 6 months. Slightly embarrassing I have to admit. I guess I was stocking up for winter.

BUT.. I am happy to say I started dieting (beginning of November) and working out like crazy the past month and a half and have lost 21 pounds!! I weigh a pound less then I did when he left!! YAY!!!! *pats self on back*
 I have been missing my sweets like crazy and it does get really tough seeing all the yummy food out there. Me and Val do have celebration nights once a month where we completely pig out.. Usually 50 wings from Buffalo Wild Wings and chips and Salsa from Mi Mexico.. and maybe some Pomegranate Mike's Hard Lemonade (shhhh). I think it's important to reward yourself or it gets easy to stray.

I have to admit, it's so much easier to work out with a partner, It's great motivation and a way to push yourself. To reward myself after the first month I splurged on cute VS yoga pants and some Sketchers Shape-ups... Let's admit it, so much easier to work out when your in cute pants and pretty shoes. Oh, such a girl. (and no I do not do my make-up and hair before going to the gym...even though I have considered it recently)

yoga pants I got in mint, black and white (no this isn't me, LOL)

My pretty shoes

I guess the point of this post is to be a bit more personal and share something that I have been working on. Thanks for reading if you've gotten this far!! :)
