Today’s summary: i worked out and ate a lot. 

Increasing my carbs was a success this week. It’s weird that even though I’m eating more, I’m finding that I’m even more hungry throughout the day. 

It’s a little nerve wracking, but i feel good.

Taking mirror pics is not my forte. 
I’ve just increased my overall intake and upped my carbs. 
My upper body is not on the same developmental pace as my lower body. And that makes me sad.

It’s leg day and I’m counting down the minutes before I log out of work so that I can go to the gym. 

My hair is getting long again and that makes me happy. I start a new class tonight and in my instructor’s bio it says his hobby is “bodybuilding”.

Hopefully my lack of muscles will not foil my plan of getting on his good side by sharing interests. 

I’m still so tired from vacation (yes I’m tired from my vacation) and hopefully that goes away soon.

First day back to work after having 6 days off work (10 day vacation) and this is about as good as it’s gonna get. We don’t have a full house anymore and the quiet is eerie. I’m keeping my daughter home with me today while i work so we’ll see how that goes. But it’s her first day back without her siblings, so i think it’s best. 

Gym schedule will be reworked (again) and i get to go back to my normal eating schedule after 10 days of quest bars, ready to drink protein, and tuna. 

I also haven’t weighed myself in over a month and I might do that Wednesday. But then again probably not. 

Happy Monday!

Adulthood is primarily about being plagued by making life decisions. :/


Hotel mirror selfies are mandatory. Annnd I’m at least 28 shades darker than the start of summer.  

We’ve been in Oceanside since Saturday and I got to work out at the LA Fitness here. It’s definitely the best LA Fitness I’ve ever been to. 

I have gotten biceps/triceps, chest, legs, and back this week. My cardio was walking around Legoland for 8 hours a day both Sunday and Monday and boogie boarding all day both Tuesday and Wednesday lol. I just want to live on the beach, it’s sooo relaxing. 

We drop the kids back to El Paso and then head back to Phoenix on Sunday. Definitely going to miss having the family together, but one thing i won’t miss is the constant fighting. Lol.

It’s summer so I’m 5 shades darker and it’s hard for me to work with my lighting. But, i think my baby muscles are starting to grow into adult sized muscles. 

We’re taking our mini basketball team to San Diego this weekend for 6 days and  I’m sooooooo excited. I need a vacation like, as of 2 months ago. Going from a mom of one to a mom of 4 can really test your patience. Don’t try this at home kids. 

Our hotel is 4 miles away from an LA Fitness and i already have my food packed. My food next week will consist mostly of ready to drink protein shakes, quest bars, copious amounts of canned tuna, and whole wheat tortillas (because: non-perishable) 

Yes, i understand i will be on vacation. However,  in order for me to fully enjoy my vacation i will need to be able to de-stress at the gym (because: FOUR KIDS) and have food ready to whenever i need it (because: ALWAYS HUNGRY).

Hellooooo! 

A small update, summer has started and therefore I have a house full of kids… 4 to be exact. I’ve about had it with Grad School and I quit school pretty much every other day. 

Strength training on bench has paused since Adrian and I can’t go to the gym together while we have all 4 kids. But i’ve figured out that I can go to the gym during my lunch hour (with only going over my lunch an average of 10 minutes). I’ve pretty much stopped tracking my intake on My Fitness Pal. But that doesn’t mean I’m eating badly. I just needed to stop with the EXACT number thing. 

My biggest accomplishment recently is that I’m able to weigh and separate 5 lbs of chicken into my daily portions, in less than 5 minutes. 

Go me.

"So wake me up when it’s all over"

8:00 am - I got a call from my dad. My cousin died last night.

10:45 a.m. - I pulled a 185 deadlift.

For the entire 80 minutes I’m the gym I listened to Aloe Blacc - Wake Me Up.

There are a thousand thoughts that I want to write. We had a falling out just last month. I have so many words and nothing so say.


Aaaallll day!!

Aaaallll day!!


It’s just one of those days.

It’s just one of those days.


I wish my day job was lifting weights, because I just can’t focus on these numbers in front of me right now.

Plus, I have school tonight.

I need to get through this Master’s ASAP. I’m so stressed out that I’m having nightmares of financial statements. Playtime with my daughter has turned into her using the calculator on her Vtech tablet while I use mine for homework.

The only math I enjoy doing now is “plate math” (what goes on my plate and in my mouth and the plates that go on the bar)

I benched 135 for one rep the other day though. So life is good.


I’m still here, just not posting a lot. Thanks to everyone for sticking around. You all motivate and inspire me so much.


Today i benched 115lbs for 6 reps! 

Next week I’m going to try and max out my bench. So I’ll be going for 135 … AHHHHHHHHHHH!
I’m nervous, but confident. But I’m trying not to be overly confident in case I miss it.
