On another note... I just got turned on to this gal: Snack-Girl. Her blog today had a recipe for a virgin cucumber margarita... I'm loving the thought! I'm thinking I might have to play with this and reduce (or eliminate altogether) the "sugar" (honey), but I might have myself a cool drink to sip through my figure-prep summer!

I'm definitely spending some time exploring on her site today! :-)

Workout... This evening I'll be hitting Legs.. my last leg-day of the week. Here's the workout:

Romanian deadlifts 3 sets 10-15 reps
Wide Leg Press  (using wide stance) 3 sets  10-15 reps
Leg Curl 3 sets 6-8 reps
Walking Lunge 3 sets 12-15 reps (I add a kickback to these - lunge then as I rise, I kick back the back leg and tighten from toe to tush)
Weighted single leg raises 3 sets 12 reps each leg
Dumbbell Squat 3 sets 12 reps (holding 15 # dumbbells)
Calf Raises 6 sets 15 reps holding weights

Tomorrow plans to be a busy day. I've got measurements & pics, a long workout, a hair appt, and my anniversary. I know I'll be on the go, so I've already tossed a NoGii protein bar in my purse (2 actually), so that I'm not caught without food, though I hope to be able to hit all my meals with actual meals. I'll be having my treat meal for our anniversary, though we're not sure, scheduling wise, when that will be.

I'm working on a new playlist for my workout tonight... need a boost. Music usually does that for me. 

Speaking of music... Posing Music... The debate rages on! We had it down to 3 songs, then added more, LOL! Decisions, Decisions! 

Here's what we've got... and of course, I'm still taking suggestions (hint hint!)

1. The Afters - Never Going Back to OK
2. Maino - All the Above (feat. T-Pain)
3. Lifehouse - All In
4. Usher - More
5. Nickelback - If Today Was Your Last Day
6. Sick Puppies - Rip Tide

  1. Oooh, I have a soft spot for More by Usher- that was one I almost used! Another good one that I heard someone was was Blow by Keisha. =)
