Week 5, Day 9 Fit Chicks

Sunday, December 5, 2010

 So I walk into class and see on the wall:

20 Squats.  10 Left Leg Lunges.  15 Push Ups. 20 Sit ups. 10 Right Leg Lungs. 15 Push Ups. 4 SUICIDE Runs.  We had to do his repeatedly for 20 minutes.

I wanted to run off the school building when I saw Suicide Runs...No I am just kidding. 
Fit Chicks makes me feel amazing and hubby and I are already talking about the fact that I can not live without Fit Chicks in my life.  So we have to work it out financially as to how I can continue this for February, because I don't want to stop!  I for see a budget in my near future...new bag or bootcamp? New hair cut or bootcamp? New boots or bootcamp? New car or bootcamp, LOL!?

We have a new instructor, Dana who I've met before and I love her method of training.
So Wednesdays class left me huffing and puffing but what I found really cool was that after every circuit training was each exercise was getting easier.  I mean each sit up interval I was doing better and better and push ups, I was rocking them.  Something I never imagined I could do when I first started 5 weeks ago.

In fact the next day my tot was having a major melt down when a customer of mine left my building, he was having fun with her beautiful daughter but as they were leaving he wanted to go outside too.  The problem was we weren't dressed for going outdoors.  So he FLIPPED out.  Big time.  The worst melt down I have ever seen him throw. 
So he's kicking and screaming as we're waiting for the elevator, there's 2 guys waiting as well for the elevator and I know they are dreading going up the elevator with me.
So beyond annoyed at my sweet Charlie as he is having his break down I take him under my arm and I go down the hall and take the stairs.
15 flights of stairs to calm him down.

I never would have considered this if I wasn't doing Fit Chicks.  There's no way I'd have the stamina to do this if I wasn't doing Fit Chicks.
But once he calmed down which was around the 7th floor I let him climb the stairs with me and he had forgotten what he was crying about and had a blast as we climbed the remainder of the stairs.  I made it fun by chasing him(so I could build some cardio)

Now if only I can commit to dietary changes.....here's a recipe from Fit Chicks.  Oh yeah, these Chicks will have your back once you sign up.  They send me emails for tips for exercising at home  and recipes and such.  I am working on it.  These sound yum so I'll give them a try!  A mojito would go really good with this.  

Fajita Lettuce Wraps
Ingredients

4  lettuce wraps (You can buy pre-washed lettuce wraps, or to save cash just buy a head of romaine or leaf lettuce. You can use more lettuce wraps if you like yours less stuffed)
1 tbsp olive oil
Juice of 1/2 lime
2 cloves crushed garlic
8 oz of boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut in strips
1/2 red onion
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
1 yellow pepper
1 tsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste

Optional

1/2 cup guacamole
1/2 cup salsa

Directions
Marinate chicken in lime juice and garlic. Set aside while you chop the veggies.
Heat oil in medium heat.  Pour marinated chicken and juices about 5 minutes until no longer pink. Remove chicken.
Add the onions and peppers to the pan. Sprinkle with cumin and salt and pepper. Sautee about 5 minutes.
Add chicken back to the pan for a couple of minutes until completely cooked.
Spoon into wraps, top with salsa and guacamole if you want.
