Cheater cheater

You know that feeling after you do something that little voice in your head told you not to do? That you dummie feeling? Well, I don't know if you can tell, but I had that feeling in this picture. 

My little voice was telling me, "I told you that saki bomb would do nothing but make you feel tired and guilty and it was not going to be worth it." The voice was right. Saturday night B had a work event at a casino and I caved. Is it the end of the world? Of course not, but I am irritated with myself because I really wanted to stay true to my 100% clean til Christmas goal and I didn't. (I am glad though that my eating has been completely on point, but for me that's the easy part.) Want to know the worst part? Not worth it at all!! I didn't want to keep drinking so it just made me tired. Oh well, I will take the advice I always give others, shake it off and move on. 

You know what makes it really easy to move on? An arm workout that kicks your butt!! I'm so excited to be seeing small changes in my arms and hopefully they continue to get stronger over the next few months. 

{Please don't mind my lack of make-up and serious need of a tan.} A guy told B and I at the gym yesterday that we were the most committed couple he has seen in the gym. I love that man :)

Here's what our workout looked like:

Curls 4 sets of 10
Preacher curls 3 sets of 10 
Reverse curls 3 sets of 8
Overhead cable curl 3 sets of 8
Skull crushers 3 sets of 8 (I used the 50lb barbell... new record for me!)
Tricep pushdown with rope 3 sets of 10
Single arm overhead seated tricep press 3 sets of 8 
Close hand pushups 3 sets of 12

and then your arms will explode. Just kidding. But really. 

How are you all doing with being 100% clean til Christmas? 


  1. Um, I want your arms! Wow! Those biceps are amazing!

    I am so glad you are letting yourself of the hook and moving on! I am always terrible at following my own advice, but it is important not to dwell on tiny mistakes!

    I am trying to eat as clean as possible, but still let myself enjoy the holidays. I think eating Paleo naturally allows this to occur which is nice! I am also running every day, so that always helps me feel strong and vital!

  2. Little B you look great and your arms are ripped! I love that you posted your arm workout and the lbs you lift for skull crushers! It is so helpful and motivating to see how much others can lift! Thanks!

  3. Wow, looking great girl! Thanks for posting your workouts, love it! Thank you!
