i reeeeally missed my saturday morning workout. but i had a good
excuse reason as i certainly could have gotten up super early and went for a run. we were up and outta the door by 7am getting ready for the FanuMe Life Fair!
our fellow UH COOG, Faith, invited us to participate in her event and we were completely honored to do so. we had a 6 Pack USA booth and represented our company and also pushed my new ebook, Fit Foodie Lean.
i even did a radio interview with Reyna from KSBJ (or tried to :shock: ) lol! i was so nervous.
this running your own business thing can be pretty darn tough. tougher than i ever thought. but when God gives you a vision you have to trust Him and WALK. i have a tendency to over complicate things though, let Sonny tell it. regardless, working beside my husband has been a great, great blessing in my life. we are both super competitive, but we do our best to remember that we are a team and to always work together, not against each other.
we've started a tradition (not that we don't go out to eat to celebrate everything else already) to go out for a meal together immediately after a business event to relax, reflect, and discuss how it all went and address our areas of improvement.
we found a gold mine this time.
Sonny actually had another restaurant picked out, but after discussing the idea of a Vietnamese option out loud in Academy Sports and Outdoors, this ear hustling guy came outta no where and suggested Mai's in downtown Houston. j/k, Sonny just talks extremely loud. so we trusted him and went for it.
we tried some pho (first timers!) with a combo of rare beef, tripe, and meatballs. that broth.......
this is called 'catfish in a clay pot'. doesn't matter what kinda pot it came in. so dang yummy. the sweet and sour flavors made this dish pretty awesome.
i ordered the garlic chicken and vegetables and added asparagus as our waitress recommended and she was spot on! she said the meat was already marinated in the sauce, so i could not get it on the side this time.
sat. tis. fied.
the 80/20 rule (80% clean, 20 indulge, enjoy, and LIVE) was in full effect this weekend.
we stopped after that.
i was back at it today, but full of sodium, fluffiness, and zero motivation from yesterday's meals no doubt. been drinking a ton of water to help with the bloating. no regrets though, ever. it will wear off; it always does. i taught my class and even had enough energy to hop on the stairmaster and get this puppy done:
|0-2||50||single step warmup|
|2-3||60||every other step w/ alternating back leg lift|
|3-4||90-100||side step right|
every other step w/ alternating back leg lift
|5-6||90-100||side step left|
|6-7||60||every other step w/ alternating back leg lift|
|7-7:30||90-100||side step left|
|7:30-8||90-100||side step right|
|8-9||90-100||every other step w/ alternating back leg lift|
repeat! and absolutely NO HANDS ;) why is the stairmaster so cool? after reading these benefits, you'll agree.
our cousin Anthony got Chiso a personalized Rocket's shirt and some new kicks! he sported his fit today at our family gym date.
he wasn't too interested in shooting hoops with me though- too busy watching his papa.
friends, always count your blessings, not your problems. we live in an imperfect word filled with imperfect people. once you accept this fact and live in the NOW, life gets a whole lot easier and your perspective changes for the better.
have a great night. it's a new week- here we gooooo
