I. Am. In. Heaven. 🌈
This morning I remembered that I am damn adult and I can do whatever the hell I want so I went out and got bagels. (And now I may or may not be in a carb coma because I’ve had three in the last two hours and omg I just love bagels so much 😋) (Also this is why I don’t get bagels...I have no self control 😂)
Did y’all think I’d go a day without posting my daily workout accountability?!? Hahahaha WRONG! 😂
Ya girl got in her quick 23 minute workout after Justice League and before work at 4:30.
And even though these numbers look LAME (in comparison to my Insanity numbers 😏) I was sweating like crazy and working muscles in my body that I forgot even existed! 💪🏻 Honestly though, if I worked out at a gym, I SO would not have gotten that workout in. By the time I woke up, ran some errands, had lunch and went to the movies I literally only had 40 minutes before I had to work.
Yet I GOT my workout in and I’m going into this weekend a damn warrior 🙌🏻
Day 3 is DONE! 🙌🏻 And yes, that IS a giant pile of laundry that needs to be folded behind me 🙄
Today I chose working out over folding laundry.
Why? Well, mainly because I hate folding laundry and since I work from home the only clothes I wear daily are just workout clothes and PJs 😂
But ALSO because I wanted to take 35 minutes for MYSELF. I love spending time on myself FOR myself 🌈
And besides, the laundry will be fine...one more day won’t do any harm 😏
‼️Whack-job Wednesday‼️ #4
This is a weekly segment where we bring you the most notorious person from each of Ohio’s 88 counties.
This week we will focus on:
Six members of the Jeanette McAdams’ family mysteriously fell ill and died from 1848 to 1851. Historians believe McAdams — described as a peculiar girl with cold eyes — poisoned their food.
McAdams disappeared before the Civil War and is rumored to have joined the Confederate Army as a spy, according to The Star-Beacon.
This section was all gathered from: http://www.starbeacon.com/community/the-mcadams-mystery/article_0b094c90-c877-548b-a95c-4efc75e7a115.html
The scribe has upstaged the stonecutter; the paper record survived far longer than the sandstone. According to the cemetery’s record book, the deceased in this row are members of the Alexander and Rebecca McAdams family; Eliza was Alexander’s second wife.
Paper and ink reveal the mystery:
Julia died Feb. 27, 1848, age 14;
Arthur died Jan. 1, 1850. age 8;
Abagail died Jan. 4, 1850, age 21;
Walter died Aug. 15, 1850, age 14;
Luther, followed a month later, age 12.
Rebecca died Feb. 6, 1851.
I don’t talk about this little shake enough but shittttt, it’s one of the reasons I LIVE! 😍
Truth is, I used to be a 💩 eater. I’m talking whole bags of potato chips after classes, no veggies, pop galore (likeeeee 64 oz of pop in an 8 hour work shift 🤦🏻♀️), carbs galore. Seriously, not a healthy thing in sight. Shit, thinking about it now is give me a stomachache 🤢
Then I started to try and live healthy. Watched what I ate (to an extent) and tracked everything. Still, there were virtually no veggies (or anything of substance) in my life. Even though I was working out and trying to take care of my body, I was getting sick SO much.
Enter this ✨ magical shake ✨
It’s the equivalent of like six salads 🥗 It has a bunch of pre and probiotics, along with allllll da vitamins and minerals you can imagine 💊 For a girl who used to get sick all the time, this is a lifesaver.
This shake right here also curbs all the junk food cravings 🍫🍦🍭🍩🍪 I have and, today, tastes like a cookies and creme shake from Steak and Shake (but it’s vegan and has WAYYYY less sugar and calories than the aforementioned Steak and Shake shake).
This shake right here is what helps keep me on track 80% of the time (because, you know, nutrition is 80% of being healthy while fitness is only 20%).
I’ve had this shake pretty much DAILY for over 2️⃣ years now and tbh, I don’t know what I would do without it.
All that being said, I started drinking this shake because of a week trial. I have 5 of those trials available.
All it takes is once week of dedication to start getting results.
Sooo, ya wanna try this magical unicorn shake or...? 🦄🦄🦄

Yes, it’s only day 2 but I am already planning that cheat meal 😂
And don’t let my smile fool y’all...I’m sore as 💩 right now 😭
I forgot how intense this program is...AND IT IS ONLY DAY 2. Literally guys, my WHOLE body is sore. Shoulders, triceps, quads, back...I’m hobbling while I walk 🤣
No pain no gain though, #amiright ? (Now excuse me while I take allllll da ibuprofen and drink allllll da water)
The tragic story of Kamo Peterson resonated with many South Africans who retweeted the posts and sent messages of support. The #RIPKamo hashtag was posted hundreds of times, including by the government-run South African Department of Women.
In January 2016, a South African newspaper, The Star, reported the story of a brutal rape and murder of a young girl, by a group of men in Johannesburg. The horrific details described a tale that was disturbingly common in South Africa at the time. But this was slightly different. This never happened.
Day 1 done!
And idk if you can tell, but I was DRENCHED in sweat. The funny thing was I didn’t do ANY hard cardio. I was only using 10 lb weights. But BOY, I am sore af just a few hours later.
When I first did this program I called it my “swolemate” program. And even though Shaun T is my soulmate trainer, I still think this program is my favorite.
This is installment #4 of our weekly “Crimes at Wal Mart” segment. Enjoy 😁! Bros Who Really Want Beer
Date of Incident: 2011
Three brothers between the ages of 19 and 21 entered a Texas Walmart in 2011. They were shopping but hoping for that five-finger discount on some beer! They grabbed several cases of beer, ran out of the store, hopped into their vehicle, and tried to flee the scene. A woman at the checkout line told the cashier to do something but since she couldn’t, Monique Lawless took matters into her own hands! She told the cashier to watch her purse and began pursuit. She chased them out of the store and jumped on their car. She tried to hold on but her grip wasn’t tight enough and they sped off. However, the police were able to track them down and the boys were arrested for aggravated robbery as well as evading arrest! Check out the video here: https://youtu.be/oMtbtbcyH7E
A new day, a new week, a new program 😂
Insanity is done so to get me through the rest of 2017, I’m going back to one of the programs that gave me my best results: Hammer and Chisel.
This program is two months and is a killer strength training and cardio workout.
Last time I did it, I lost 3.5 lbs and 9.75 inches (with 5 of those inches being straight from my waist). I started the program with just 3 and 5 lb weights; I ended with 8 and 12 lbs.
This time around I’m hoping to get those baby abs back (AKA focus on nutrition again because the last two weeks I’ve been slacking) and up my weights to 15 and 20 lbs.
Today is day 1 again.
Bring. It. On.
These were my Insanity results.
Down 1.5 lbs and 1 inch. Not my best results ever (not like the next program I am doing 😏) but life threw a couple curveballs at me so I slipped on the nutrition (which is 80% of the work). Still though, I’m DAMN PROUD of myself. I did a program I said I would NEVER do and I crushed it. My endurance has skyrocketed (as shown by my Fit Test) and I can do moves that I’ve NEVER been able to do (including legit push ups, moving push ups, push up jacks and drills). Insanity, you have been AH-MAZING. Thanks for kicking my ass 😘
Now onto the next program (because gains don’t come when you take a break).
Yesterday was the last day of Insanity 🎉
Today was the Fit Test.
The Fit Test is designed to test your endurance through the program. And HOLY SHIT, my endurance has SKYROCKETED 🚀
This is the kind of growth I like seeing. Yes, I like to see the scale move. Yes, I like to see those inches disappear. But at this point in my journey I’m ALLLLLL about getting stronger.
And these numbers represent my growth in strength. To say I’m proud of myself is a damn understatement. I could scream from the rooftops right now about finishing Insanity.
As soon as I get my ✨ FREE SHIRT ✨ for completing the program I’m NEVER taking it off 💁🏻♀️
INSANITY. IS. DONE.
I have finished my “puke program.” The program I said I would never ever do, even if I had to choose between getting fit and dying. The program I thought people were crazy for doing. The program where I thought people WANTED to torture themselves.
Starting this program scared me to death. Pressing play on each new workout both excited and terrified me.
And now that I am done, holy shit. I am SO proud of myself. I did something I said I would NEVER do and I CRUSHED it.
Celebratory drink tomorrow? I think yes!
