It's been a while ....

First of all ... I'm sorry. It's not that I didn't want to blog, I just got too busy to do it. Many of you are wondering... what happened? did she fit into her birthday dress? did she look hot in the Bahamas? How was her Summer? Well it's been a while so here is a quick overview:

1. I did fit into my birthday dress!

Yes! (P.S: I put on the flip flops at the end of the night. I had tons of fun and apparently so did everyone else (such as the dude on the car). Literally the last 3-4 days before the party I worked it OUT and just made it into my hot black number.

2. No I didn't look hot in the Bahamas because .. I didn't end up going. Broke up with the boyfriend week of my Birthday (yea, not fun) and then ended up canceling out trip. Everything happens for a reason and turns out i was better off in the long run : )

2. My Summer was great! I ended up going to VEGAS w my girls. Once I found out I was going to Vegas, I kicked into FULL P90X mode! Once I posted Vegas pics from Vegas - probably 10 people facebook'ed, emailed, text me to find out what I've been doing and how they can do it too. Check out the pics below.

So as Summer turned into fall i started to slack. I'll admit it. I didn't fall off the wagon but I'm hanging on w/ one arm (I'm about to fall pretty soon). I've made a huge decision to get back into work out mode and start again on Monday. I am departing from Puerto Rico on my cruise ship Christmas Day and am determined to look HOT! plus its best to maintain a healthy lifestyle. So here I go again! : )

Lean on me . . .

(some of my favorites above) 

On the P90X plan they allow you to have 1 weight watchers/lean cuisine meal a day (within the calorie requirements). Since I don't cook often, this is perfect for me! A lot of people are scared to try them fearing they're GROSS but they're actually very delicious : )

The workout skinny!

So I've done 7 days! and I've done the DVDs. Here is what I think of them so far.

Core Syn- Love it! I found this the most difficult for me. You're doing a lot, abs, legs, back, arms. This DVD made me very tired. I had a hard time with the push ups. I have weak arms! Hopefully by the end of this I will be more comfortable doing push ups. The banana rolls were tough. Keeping your balance and holding the pose. 

Kenpo- MY FAVORITE! When I was younger I always said I wanted to be a boxer lol why? I'm not sure. I'm living out my dream doing this dvd. It's kickboxing! punching, jabbing, swinging, loved it. I did a lot better than I thought. 

Yoga- YAWN! I had trouble with the DVD. Coming home from a long day at work, some may think I'd want to unwind and relax. The Yoga DVD was VERY hard for me to do after work. I feel like it made me even more sleepy. Every DVD except for this one, seems to go by fairly quickly! high energy! exciting! I looked up and realized I still had 50 minutes left and freaked out. I've decided to try this before work rather than after work, it might be a little big easier for me to do, we'll see. 

AB Ripper - Intense from the start! Had trouble the first time, but the second time went a lot better. I think as time goes on this DVD will be great for me. I could feel the work out after it was done.  Oh, gotta love those banana rolls!

Legs and Back - I really want to work on my legs! so this work out was great. It was difficult but I got through it. I think Core Syng was a lot harder than this DVD. Wall squats were great.  

Shoulders and Arms - Resistance bands come in hand for this! It was great. Nice toned arms. 

Jonesy - Day 7

Happy Birthday To Me - 1 month from today

My 26th Birthday is one month from today! My goal is to lose some more lbs and get leaner by then. Hopefully it works out!

Shani is making strawberries dipped in chocolate! I will be eating one : ) but no cake. 

It worked for them! It WILL work for me too!

One of the reasons I decided to do P90X was because of the AMAZING success stories I'd find all over the internet (mostly You Tube). I thought it would be a great idea to blog my whole experience but I just realized that, I'm sort of bad at this blogging thing. I'm trying my best! 
If you have any questions feel free to make comments on my blogs and I'll do my best to answer!

Jonesy - Day 7

Tuesday, March 24, 2009


A lot of people are asking me what I am eating. It's only day 2! but here is what I've had so far on Day 1 and Day 2. Yes, I ate the same thing - I am a pretty basic person, I'll switch it when I get bored. 

10:00AM - Grapefruit w/ Splenda ( great at making me feel full ) 

Noon - String Cheese Snack

2:00pm - Baby spinach w/ tomatoes, feta, grilled chicken, light balsamic dressing

4:00pm - String Cheese Snack 

6:00pm - Low- Cal Chicken Soup by Progresso 

After my work out I could have a recovery shake or another snack like a hand full of almonds, soy nuts or celery sticks. 

Lots and Lots and Lots of water through out the day!
