Motivational Monday!

It's a new week. It's a new start. It's time to get busy on y'alls fitness goals!!

Tell me what you want, what you really, really, really want? Is it a slimmer waist? Leaner arms? Strong legs? Do you want to run? Lift?
Just get busy with whatever it is,...YOU ARE YOUR ONLY EXCUSE!! And, don't let a little sweat, soreness, or heavy-breathing stop you. Take a minute to recovery and just.keep.going. You will enjoy that adrenaline rush after it's done. buhh-lieveee me.

I got a rough 8 miler done last night, night. I know. I mentioned I was on the oh, so early [wake up at 4am & go] running routine but I had some heavy legs when I woke up. SO, I gave them more rest time before I got out there with my long run. It's the last week of the 8 Week Crash Half Plan, this was an awesome schedule. It kept me at low [3-4] miles during the week, I'm probably going to continue to run with it. It's taper week, can't wait to get out there for the Tacoma Narrow Half {13 in 2013}, number 5 for my road races this year. And, crossing over the Narrows bridge will be AMAZING!! It's one thing I can cross off my runners bucket list!! I'm still on the fence for the Port Gamble Half, just depends if we are out of town for the night.

 And, I'm on WEEK 11 of the Les Mills Hybrid. And, boy are they giving me the tough [longer] workouts in the final 2 weeks. I even added Jillian Michaels Shred-It with Weights [Kettle bell Routine] this morning. I definitely felt the burn. I won't see drastic results from this round but it did kick my ass into gear. Like any Beachbody program, you have to include healthy eating or their meal plans. I failed in that area, and I'm okay with that. {keeping it real} I'm staying focused with my original workout schedules and ending the year with a BAM!! For a good minute, I wanted to jump on the Focus T25 hype-wagon but decided to stay with my Turbofire/Les Mills Pump Hybrid. I've had Turbofire since last year and it's time I get busy with it. Also, adding 20lb plates to my collection for a bigger challenge during Les Mills Pump's REP EFFECT! Y'all want to learn more about BeachBody Programs, check out my site: Rosanna BeachBody Coach

I've been a busy pinner for the last couple of days; creating new boards, and pinning like it's my day job. I've got lots of good resources, ideas and tips to turn to. Anyone else a pinner crazy? Share your boards with me. I'm sure I'll re-pin from y'all!!

We're half-way through summer and I FINALLY got some events created for the MRTT Kids Fit Club!! SO, if you're reading this and are local, join in!! We have to take advantage of that sunshine while we still got it. Plus, we need to keep this kiddos active while having fun!!

Enough chit-chat, I have to go clear the disastrous office/craft area! And, remove all these floating toys out of my living room. Let Mama's cleaning frenzy begin.

Have a Fit & Fabulous Day Y'all!! Go get ir done.

hey, girl, heyyyyy...

hi. hello. hola. hey. yo. 'sup. how you doin'.

it's been a while. a long while. nearly 4 months since I posted. Whoa!

where have I been? drinking pitchers of margaritas, eating fast food, making my girls top priority, welcoming husband back home from an 8 month deployment, getting back on my game! It gets crazy around here. And, it's shown on my waistline, err, thighs, arms...errrr'where!!

okay, enough pouting! I've been busy, busy enjoying life, focusing on our complete family, enjoying the view... ... ....

 I've continued running (duh), picked up an 8 week training plan, still going strong on 12 weeks of Les Mills Hybrid {les mills pump & les mills combat} to keep my ass moving. I'm on Week 10 of that program; Whew!! I've ran 2-3 half marathons since my last post. For the last couple of weeks, I've been pushing myself out of bed at 4AM, yep, 4.frigging.AM, to go RUN, to get those training miles in. Why so early? Well, husband heads off to work around 5:45-6. So, if I want a stress-free run (errr, not rushing to get dinner done, exhausted from the day,...), I figured, the earlier the better. It works, I'm out the door by 4:30ish and log in between 3-5 miles. Long Runs are for the weekends, and I'm still up EARLY to get it done before coming home to an awake house. Oh, I just recently (this past weekend) got a RAGNAR under my belt. It was AWESOME!! I joined 3 other MRTT ladies, for an adventure up North. I saw the CANADA Border Entrance!! I was runner #2 in Van #1, ran roughly 16 miles, picking up 2.40 miles from injured runner #3. I'm looking forward to MORE. Yep, relays are another level of running awesomeness!!

 I'd flood you with photo's but uhmm, I'm still trying to figure out what to share in the post. Just a catch up, I suppose. If your on FB, dailymile, IG (rosannarox), you'll notice my flood of FITNESS posts, runs, beachbody posts, my fitness pal,,,....and so on!! Told y'all I'm back on it. IT.IS.TOUGH, when you stop nursing (killer calorie burner//my secret tool) and gain weight. I didn't care at first, I should of. I should of stayed away from rita's and wendy's too. Hah! I gained pretty much every single pound I had lost post-pregnancy. Now, Serena is pushing 2 1/2, and I'm here busting my ass to lose that weight. GREAT! whatever, live, love & learn!

Have a fabulous day y'all!!
