fat butt friday

i have been so exhausted this week, but i have not let it get in the way of my workouts. i don't know if it is because i am getting up earlier to get my kiddos ready for school or what, but it has been one of those weeks, and i have struggled to get out of bed each day, and i usually don't workout until the afternoon. i guess it doesn't really matter when i workout, just as long as i do it.

as of today, i have been working out for 54 days. what an accomplishment for me. i keep saying that, but it truly is major for me! however, the last two weeks, i haven't really lost any weight, which is not super frustrating to me, but i often find myself wondering why, so it must bother me to a degree. i just feel like i shouldn't be hitting a plateau this early on. i went from sitting on my ass and eating junk all day, to exercising approximately 30 minutes a day and eating as clean and healthy as possible. perhaps i need to workout for longer? this weekend, i am writing down everything i eat and a blog friend who knows a lot about health and nutrition will be looking it over to see if i am eating too much, not enough, or perhaps not enough variety. i just don't know!

some of my favorite foods lately:

Burger with lettuce, tomato, and avocado with a pickle and cantaloupe on the side. #food #foodporn #fat2fitwithjoniBreakfast smoothie with unsweetened almond milk, banana, peaches, and blueberries. No added sugar  whatsoever and this is almost gross it's so sweet. #fruit #breakfast #food #foodporn #smoothie
hamburgers with lots of lettuce, tomato, and avocado. smoothies are the best! so many different combos to try!

this week i have been doing insanity. i have done insanity before and it is some tough stuff. i have never been able to make it through an entire video though. insanity is not for wimps! i really didn't have any intentions of doing insanity, but i felt like i needed to increase the intensity of my workouts. i haven't been running this week, but i plan to add a run in tomorrow morning.

pressed for time? i found a series of 10 minute workouts at fit for two tv recently and found that they are great. check out this first one below and then give it a try next time you are short on time but still want to get a workout in. then, be sure to head over to the youtube channel, fit for two tv and find the others, and give them a try.

what are some of your favorite workout videos?
