A Heat Wave is a coming…

Wow, here in Seattle it’s expected to reach into the high 90’s on sunday! I don’t know about you but to me that is too hot! Especially since summer has just begun! Our weather lately has been pretty mild until now. I can see a lot of popsicles in my near future to try to beat this heat. What’s your favorite way to beat the heat? Tell me in the comments below!

It’s been a while….

Hey folks!

It’s certainly been a while since I have posted to my blog. I’m currently working full-time, plus juggling a full-time certification course as well as trying to keep up with my social life as well. How do I manage this all? Not very well apparently. I probably need a crash course in being organized and keeping to my deadlines and projects. Does this resonate with you?

Pranks and April Fools!

Pranksters unite! Today is April 1st, and it’s prime time for April Fools day jokes. I arrived to work to see a coworkers keyboard and monitors covered in foil! I am surrounded by clever jokers!

I actually thought about doing what is depicted below in the picture for April Fools day. Then I was thinking if someone is half asleep it might not go well!

Have you pulled any April Fools pranks on your family or coworkers? What was your favorite prank/joke and what was their reaction (all in good humor, of course)? I’d love to hear about them in the comments!

April Fools Joke

Hello Wednesday Morning!

On my morning commute, I was “blinded by the light”, hehe. I had to do it pun intended. Oh and please excuse the dirty windshield. This was a gorgeous sunrise with the sun peaking through. It truly blinded me, but was still such a welcome sight to see!

HelloSun

Resistance workout today!

I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to keep up with trying to increase my weights. I started my journey with a set of dumbells (3, 5, 8 lbs.). Well I soon outgrew those weights.

As I stayed consistent with my workouts, I was having to increase my weights more frequently. This is a good thing! Essentially it means I am getting stronger and building lean muscle.

So guess what finally arrived today?

The ever coveted bowflex selecttech 552 adjustable dumbells.

I haven’t had a chance to use them or unpack them from the box. But you can be sure I will be busting these babies out of the box tomorrow.

Do you have bowflex dumbells? How do you like them? I’d love to hear your opinion. Feel free to get in touch @jenross76 on facebook, and @jenross76 on instagram.

Happy Tuesday!

Starting a new workout program! Join Me!

20160314_182230.jpg

Me, after my sweaty home workout.

I am starting this weight loss journey overweight, low self confidence, and low self-esteem. I am slowly learning to kick my negative self talk, and self-defeating attitude to the curb.

I am slowly gaining discipline, consistency and accountability for my choices, Which is huge!

I can’t tell you how many times I have started a new habit only to quit doing it a few weeks into the process! I start a new workout or start going to the gym and I’m going strong for a few weeks, and then life gets in the way. I get sick, or I’m too busy and exhausted, or I fall back into my old routines of junk food eating, desserts, and fast food. Because it’s easy, familiar and maybe a little comforting (like a down comforter on a cold day, or that biscuits and gravy that doesn’t love me back).

I am so determined to get my health back. I want to be the person who does not have to sit back, watch others have fun because I am too exhausted to participate.

As a mom on the go most of the day, I don’t have a lot of time or money to dedicate to going to the gym. I barely have time for sleep on a good day.

Get your health and your sanity back, by taking time to take care of yourself. How are you supposed to care for your family, your kids or your fur babies, if you don’t take care of yourself?

Follow me as I struggle, yet push on in my weight loss journey. I will NOT give up this time. This time WILL be different.

No one said it was going to be easy, but I hope to motivate and inspire others to join me through my struggles and triumphs….If I can do this, so can you!

Join me in a private accountability group that starts on March 21. It will include a 30 minute workout of your choice which you can do in the comfort of your own home, and a healthy nutritious super food meal replacement shake. Plus you will get me as your free coach to encourage and support you in your own weight loss journey.

I am here to help you!
