Work Out Routine

Ever since I met Tony we have been work out partners, well partners in everything actually :-)
He has pushed my little bootie like you can't believe. He makes me work for it, he makes me push through when I think I cannot go any further. He is an amazing trainer, oh did I mention he has a sexy body too!!
It is important to the both of us to lead healthy lives and stay active...and it's perfect that we can share another activity and encourage each other.

Here is our work out routine:

Monday: AM- 20 min cardio, biceps & triceps; PM- 30 min cardio
Tuesday: AM- 20 min cardio, back; PM- 30 min cardio
Wednesday: AM- 20 min cardio, shoulders; PM- 30 min cardio
Thursday: 20 min cardio, legs; PM- 30 min cardio
Friday: 30 min cardio in AM or PM
Saturday: 20 min cardio, legs; PM-30 min cardio
Sunday: any outside activity

For the most part we are pretty consistent with our working out routine. Tony doesn't let more than a day go by without some form of physical fitness. The routine might seem a little nutty to some people, but we make it fit into our lives, so it's jusr a normal thing for us. But don't get me wrong, I make sure I get some ice cream in here at least once a week. :-)


Teeth Whitening

I had this great idea that Tony and I should get our teeth whitened before the wedding, and well yes that day was today. First off you go in and they clean your teeth, then they put this thing in your mouth to keep it open for oh AN HOUR!! You know, kinda like when you get braces they keep it open with a plastic thing. I probably drooled as much as a baby does when they are teething :-( So I am sitting there in 15 minnutes intervals, with my mouth WIDE OPEN and this laser thing basically resting on my mouth. I was ok for the first 15 minutes, but then my mouth started getting tired. And the drool starting dripping onto my chest (I know you all are laughing right now). So the dental assistant kept checking on me every 5 mintues to make sure I was ok.
One thing they didn't do was make sure I went to the restroom beforehand. I had to pee like a race horse and I couldn't move my body, I couldn't get up and releave myself...my bladder was about to explode. Finally the process was over and my teeth are white as can be for our wedding photos next weekend :-D

But can I just tell you how painful the aftermath is?!?!?! Yes, they do tell you your teeth will be a bit sensitive, they tell you not to drink colored drinks (coffee, soda). But oh my word they DO NOT tell you about the numerous numerous shocks you will receive in your teeth throughout the day. Ok seriously, that is not sensitivity, it would make anyone feel uncomfortable. I was driving to work and all I felt was shooting pains, like horrible shooting pains. I was cursing like you wouldn't believe, mind you no one was in the car. By the time I got to work, my mouth area was so red, people were wondering what I had done...some said waxing, some said botox. Botox?!?!?! I'm only 26 years young, why would I need botox????? I am still in lots of pain from this procedure, it's so uncomfortable. Everytime I feel a shock, my entire body gets a hot flash and I just want to scream!!! By the way, I called Tony after my appointment and he asked how it went and if it was painful. I said "Just a little, but you will be fine." He says, "Baby, I don't like that kind of pain. It's not fun." My repsonse, "No one does, but do it for me."

Tony's appointment was at 1pm, it was about 3pm and I still havent heard from him...so I was beginning to wonder. I text a couple of times, but no response, so that made me assume he was still getting the treatment. Finally 4pm roles around and I get this text, 'Biggest mistake I have ever made!! Why the fuck did I do that?' (sorry for the language) Well I guess it didn't go well. He called and told me it was extremely pain and he would never do it again. He could hardly talk he was in so much pain. He had took 2 prescription strength Motrin and it didn't do a thing. Then he took an Ambien about 4:15pm, and I got home at 5:30pm and he was awake. So needless to say that didn't help either. I finally talked him into taking another Ambien, and yes ladies he is now asleep at 7:00pm. I have never seen Tony in so much pain, I wish I could have taken it away from him. His eyes just told it all, they showed pain like I have never seen :-( For his sake I hope he sleeps through the night, with ZERO pain tomorrow.

So just an FYI if you ever feel like getting your teeth professionally whitened, remember this story and the amount of utter pain you will be in. Oh the price we pay for beauty!! And to look good for our wedding!!


For The Love Of Jeans

I like jeans. No, I LOVE jeans. I have actually been told I have an obsession with buying jeans. I am so picky with the way I want jeans to fit. I like them to be tight in the thighs, I like them to hide my loves (loves= love handles, my sister and I call it that. But just like every other girl out there, we all wanna hide those), I like them to be boot cut, and I like them a little longer in length. My mom hated shopping with me if she knew I was planning on getting jeans, I guess I took a really long time picking out the perfect pair. Come to think of it, I didn't own a pair of jeans until I was in the 6th or 7th grade. I was one of those kids that wore stretchy pants with a big baggy shirt that had a picture of Betty Boop LOL. I know you are laughing right now, I am too it's ok. :) (OMG horrible flash backs..how could my mom let me leave the house like that?!?!?)
I was introduced to Lucky Brand jeans while I was in college. They are probably my ALL time favorite brand of jeans. I think I have about 7 or 8 . They fit perfectly in the hips, in the waist, and are the perfect length. The length is great with heels but it is also great with flip flops, thank God!! These jeans are so A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!! And the price isn't too high, I generally spend about $90-110 on Lucky's.

More recently, probably within the last year or two, I have noticed my hairdresser wearing Hudson's. They look great on her! So I have been wanting to buy them for a very long time. But I just couldn't see spending almost $200 right now. Yes if I were back in college I probably would have, but I am a little more cautious with money now when it comes to . Well, about two months ago I splurged!! I bought a pair of Hudson's AND a pair of True Religions. I didn't quite spend $200 on each pair. I probably spent about $220 on both. Remember I said a little cautious. They are just as A.MA.Z.I.N.G as I thought they would be. The money was totally worth it :)

I used to think it was silly to buy expensive (brand name) jeans. I wondered how people could spend so much money on jeans, I mean they are jeans for crying out loud. It isn't like it's diamond earrings or a new laptop...it's jeans!! But the instant I tried the Lucky Brand jeans on, I knew I would never look back. I knew I was going to be the girl who had to spend some extra money on jeans.

Since I have started typing this up, I feel like I should reward myself with a pair of jeans. :) hehe I have just promoted 3 brands of jeans, so I think I deserve another pair...yes? I love wearing jeans. They are a staple in every girl's closet...actually in every persons closet. They are a MUST have for all.


A Creed To Live By

Don't undermine your worth by comparing
yourself with others,

It is because we are different that each
of us is special.

Don't set your goals by what other people
deem important,

Only you know what is best for you.

Don't take for granted the things closest
to your heart

Cling to that as you would your life, for without
them life is meaningless.

Don't let your life slip through your fingers by living
in the past or the future.

By living your life one day at a time, you live all the
days of your life.

Don't give up when you still have something to give

Nothing is really over … until the moment
you stop trying.

Don't be afraid to admit that you are less
than perfect,

It is the fragile thread that binds us to each other.

Don't be afraid to encounter risks,

It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.

Don't shut love out of your life by saying it's
impossible to find.

The quickest way to receive love is to give love.

The fastest way to lose love is to hold on too tightly,

And the best way to keep love is to give it wings.

Don't dismiss your dreams. To be without
dreams is to be without hope.

To be without hope is to be without purpose.

Don't run through life so fast that you forget
where you've been,

But also know where you're going.

Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored
every step of the way.
