As promised- I'm going to attempt to breakdown Wednesday evening's Butts & Guts HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) class. This is based solely off my memory. I wanted to ask the instructor, to give me the official breakdown, and I have no doubts that she would have given me her notes, however, she's instructing running clinic, so she's the most popular person in the gym right now, hence, my best memory is going to have to suffice!

Stretch it out!!! The Whole class is roughly 45 minutes long. I LOVE this class.
It's consistently changing but this is roughly what we did yesterday. Feeling like a boss!

After class, I rewarded myself with these bad boys (100 calories), and Modern Family reruns, because I missed the Big Brother is the coolest show ever memo. I will catch it next season!

I'd be lying if I said eating one bag and only one bag was an easy task and satisfies my sweet tooth craving. I would love nothing more than to eat five bags, but I can't do that. I want to lose weight. Things I tell myself to keep from eating all 50 another fun size bag:

One fun size bag is better than no fun sized bags!
I bet Giselle doesn't even eat one bag.
A minute on the lips forever on the hips!
Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels!
Do I have enough calories left for popcorn?

So far, these tactics are working, additionally my husband has zero qualms over about calling me out. Sometimes I'm thankful for his loud mouth, other times he wishes he had kept it shut. It is what it is!

57 degrees this morning! I was so excited. I dusted off and tried on my entire fall wardrobe a few fall essentials. Boots and Scarves. This is coincidentally the same dress I wore on Tuesday. Shhhhh Don't tell anyone :)

I'll probably be sweating buckets at noon, but I don't care! Loving this weather :)

Have a fab-o day fashionistas!!
