New cuff I made this weekend. I LOVE it!

It’s Wednesday, What’s New? 12.11.13

Hey guys! I started a 12 week transformation Monday, Stronglifts 5×5.  You can get more information here, but let me give you the quick rundown, I wanted to “Gain Strength And Muscle While Burning Fat…And Training Only Three Times A Week”, so check!

I’ve wanted to do a bulk for the last couple of years, but was never at my ideal weight (still not). This year I decided to go for it. I also wanted a simple routine that wouldn’t have me in the gym for 2 hours 5-6 days a week, I’ve had those moments, a lot, and thoroughly enjoyed them, but I’m not at that place right now. So 45 mins, 3 times a week, perfect. Also, after doing a bit of research I found a great video for making this a fat loss program. So I can build some serious lean muscle while still slimming down. I’m hoping it works for me, it kind of reminds me of crossfit (which I loved) as far as adding weight, etc…I won’t bore you with details.

I’m also working on finishing up a custom order for a kawaii decoden business card case. I’m really excited about this one! I can’t wait to share the finished product with you guys. If you’re familiar with kawaii, and decoden, here’s the definition from Wiki:

” “lovable”, “cute”, or “adorable”…the quality of cuteness in the context of Japanese culture.”

Here are a few examples of my handmade kawaii products…

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, are you guys feeling the holiday vibe? I do believe I’m getting in the spirit a bit!

Monday, Make It Happen

The weekend started off great. Friday I woke up early got in a workout, ate a yummy paleo breakfast, threw dinner in the crock pot, grabbed the pup and headed up the coast to Zuma Beach to pick up my bib for the Malibu Half Marathon. It was a gorgeous day in the Bu, and traffic was Friday morning light. Bib pick up was a breeze. I couldn’t have asked for any more. Except to actually be pain free and able to run Sunday. Didn’t happen. It’s not a pitty party so I won’t go on.

Check out the beautiful coastal course I missed. 😦

At least I had the comfort of Sunday morning cuddles with this lil monkey.

And my favorite breakfast. No it’s not the dirty fat ladden post half marathon feast I had imagined, but it was delicious just the same, and GUILT FREE! Organic, GMO free, vegetarian…(bubbles don’t count)

I’m happy to report that last week’s plan was a success!

  • I created 8 new pieces!
  • Blogged 4 days and I think I only missed one photo a day prompt, but there was still a blog post that day!
  • Definitely marketed/promoted
  • Worked out the 3 days I wanted to, not sure about my -2 lb goal, don’t weigh myself on Mondays

Now for this week…It’s Monday, and here’s the Make It Happen Plan:

  • Get the rest of the items made last week online
  • Create new items, different category
  • Blog my scheduled 3 days a week
  • Market and promote.
  • Gym 3 days / -2 lbs

Hope you guys had a good weekend, and cheers to a successful week!
