If you do nothing else, do this

My Jan 10' Glamour has a great page on three exercises to do (if you do nothing else).

1. Target the abs. To work those abs, get in a push up position, then jump your feet up to your chest and back. This is suppose to be more effective than push-ups. Your feet should go back the length of a yoga mat. Work up to three sets of 15. (this are hard, but that's why they work)

2. Work those buns. Stand up straight with feet shoulder width apart. Step out your right leg and drop your left knee almost to the group (in a lunge). Do 15 and repeat on the other side. I did 15 of these tonight and man my buns are burnin!

3. Shape up those arms. Get in a modified push up (girly style), but your knees should be on two pillows. This is suppose to make gravity work against you even more than a regular push up. Work up to three sets of 15.

I am going to try to do these three exercises everyday for at least a few weeks. I'll update you and let you know if they work (let's hope for a miracle).


Is it wrong to want one of these? I get so tired of my pants falling down, but don't want to wear a belt. All of my shirts come down below my belt line and who wants bluge from a belt buckle? This seems like great fix!

Comet loves Cupid

Opi color of the week: Comet loves Cupid

Reindeer Droppings

If you have not had are missing OUT!


Why is it that I cannot go Christmas shopping without coming home for something for myself. This is getting ridiculous. The sales every where are just too good. I can't resist. I vow to not buying anything else for myself from now until we hit the outlets in Venice! (pinky swear). 4 days till warmth and sunshine!

To 2010

The Christmas season is almost over (sad face)...that means it's time to start thinking about new years resolutions. Every year I say the same thing: excersize more, spend more time with my family, blah, blah, and blah. I am going to put spending more time with my family on the list and it should be easier because my little sister is home from Murray! These are a few of my other resolutions:

1. Brush at least two times a day and floss daily.

I got fitted for invisalign last week, and had a cleaning for the first time in 8 months thanks to my dentist who is so over booked they couldn't squeeze me in for another 6 months when I missed my august appointment. I found out I had four cavaities (again thanks to the old dentist who said it was just staining...). Two of which I got filled yesterday-OUCH!-One tooth was so bad almost half of my tooth was taken out. Invisalign is going to make some huge changes in my life. Because of the trays, I have to brush after I eat (which is 3 + times a day) and it is super important to floss to help prevent anymore cavaites and/or decay. I'm not a funky person who doesn't brush, but I am horrible about flossing. I can't have dark sodas or tea while the trays are in....this is sad considering all I drink is Dr. Pepper, Tea and crystal light fruit punch. I will savor each and every Dr. Pepper I drink from now till my little invisalign box arrives.

2. Pass Micro-Economics with an A!
I have completed Algebra and Calculus since summer 09'. Both with B's and I am bound and determined to get an A in this next class!

3. Do some sort of exercise three times a week. It's going to be all about being healthy in 2010. It is recommended to get exercise at least three times week for 30 mins. I'd like to get back in the gym, lifting some weights and spinning, and maybe some yoga. I really wanted to do Hot Yoga, but I am not paying $80 for a months membership-RIDICULOUS!

4. Continue cutting out credit card debit!

5. Quit picking at my nails. There's nothing classier than well manicured nails.

more to come I'm sure!

I love Christmas time, but I really wish I was spending it somewhere on an exotic island, wearing this:

Oh summer, please hurry back to KY!

Oh I wish

I have been eyeballing this beautiful cluster of pearls and pave balls from Ann Taylor. It was sold out but now it's back! I just can't bring myself to spend $60.00 when I sell a line a jewelry. Maybe Lia Sophia will give in the big statement pieces.
