May 5, 2008

Hi there!

Well, this morning I woke up very tired... I went to bed way too late and woke up early. Its going to be more difficult to exercise today, but that's okay. I've had my SW and protein drink & vitamins prior to hitting my gym. I already did my cardio, it wasn't as easy as usual. I actually need a lot of sleep, especially when I have a lot going on in my life - like now. I've been really busy lately with my construction company, ZXoom business & horse training - not to mention being a attentive mother & wife. But it's all so good. Life is exciting and full of wonderful experiences. I'll get through today with a positive mindset, good wholesome food and a happy attitude.

My cute husband has been rebuilding his engine in his twin turbo Supra. I love to walk out to his garage and watch him at work. He has one fast car, he does a 1/4 mile in 11 seconds, and that was with his old engine! His new one will be even more powerful. He's really gifted, he's done all the work on it himself! He's been in magazines and people from all over the world contact him for his expertise. He has a professional car lift in his garage, it's pretty cool. I have to say that I'm so grateful spring has finally arrived for good. It's fun to see all the sports cars, convertibles & motorcycles on the road. There's nothing more enjoyable than a bright sunny day. I love this time of year so, so much!

I've already finished my cardio this morning, I did 10 miles. My body's still weak - my chest and head hurt again from lack of sleep - ugh! It was more difficult, but that's okay, I did it! Yeah! And once I get my kids off to school I'll continue my workout by doing lower body weight training. My legs get bulky really easy so I have to do light weights and high reps. Building muscle quickly runs in my family. My brothers are big solid guys naturally, they're very blessed. I'm grateful I love to exercise, but I really do have to be careful not to over train. I like long, lean muscles on women - not big and bulky. In addition to building muscle fast my family also gains weight easily. That's why I really have to eat clean to keep a lean physique. I'm still not yet where I want to be, but I've set my goals and I'm focusing on them daily. I will achieve them very soon, it's a fun journey and I'm learning so much along the way.

I'm going to eat very clean today - just wait and see! I started my day off with my SW, vitamins, protein drink and happy thoughts. It's going to be a wonderful day for sure!

I'll touch base later this evening to report my diet. Have a good one! ;P
