Eat it then Burn it

Hello All!

Today is another beautiful and who knows what I will get into

Squat Challenge Day 8, 5/20/13 (0 Squats)
Ab Challenge Day 8 completed on 5/20/13

You guys know I don’t like to workout in front of people. It freaks me out, I always feel like they are judging my form and my technique, but to grow my business I need to start training myself outside. To get my “feet wet” I worked out in front of the boyfriend last night.

It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I was uncomfortable in awkward positions, but I pushed myself harder then usually, I kept my form in check, and I kick butt. It was a step in the right direction. If I can exercise in front of him, grunt, moan, and cheer myself on, I can do it in front of anybody. So, tomorrow is training in the park. I’m excited for the new experience, and to get myself out in the community.

Yesterday I wanted to go to Angel Island for a hike, but we missed the ferry and deiced to go for a hike somewhere else. Driving toward the Marin headlands, we found a Rodeo Beach, a small pebble beach that was perfect. There were around 15-20 surfer dudes, and maybe 10-20 people enjoying the sun. The beach wasn’t crowded, pushy, or showy, it was perfect and I’m happy I got to take a moment to chill out and enjoy the sun yesterday. Here are some pictures of the Marin headlands and my new favorite beach.

If it's hot enough this afternoon, and I have time between clients, I’m going to slip on my bikini and work on my tan.

Today I want to tackle fast food and how much exercise it takes to burn off a cheat meal.

Fast food is bad for you.
Every one knows that, but sometimes fast food is all you can afford or have time to consume. I comprised a list of popular fast food calorie and fat count and how long it would take you to sweat off each greasy prize meal.
