Shoulder Progress and Workout!

Hi Friends! 

Sorry I've been a little quiet around here lately, I have lots of fun stuff in the works right now so extra time is limited! That, and I'm still recovering from my champagne and Taco Bell filled birthday weekend.... 

Oh ya, it happened. I think I've mentioned it before but Taco Bell is my absolute favorite fast food place. Our late night Taco Bell stops are few and far between, but when it happens I make it count :) I think the final amount of food that I put down was: nachos (these were gone before we even got home), one regular taco, one Doritos Locos taco, and an Enchirito. My stomach hurts just thinking about it. Literally. Thank goodness birthday's are only once a year! 

Anyway, I found this progress pic on my phone from a couple months ago, and although I have a long way to go, it's so great seeing how far I've come. Hoping to get a great shoulder workout in this week and maybe have another picture to add to this one, lord knows I've been eating enough to hopefully make some more progress! 

Here's what my shoulder day's have been looking like lately: 

*Shoulder Press 3 x 10 (I don't super set these with anything and make sure to rest at least a full minute in between sets)
*One arm dumbbell clean and press SS lateral raise 3 x 12 
*Front raise with cables SS bent over rear delt with cables 3 x 12 
*Rear delt machine flyes 3 x 10 SS plate pushes- burnout on last set 

Ladies, good luck putting your makeup on after this one.... It hurts! 

If/when you have fast food, what's your favorite? 
When you have a cheat, does it cause more bad choices or does it allow you to more easily stick to your healthy meal plan?


  1. Nice shoulder progress!!! My favorite fast food isnt really 'fast food'....I am addicted to sushi...I could eat that every night of the week. Salmon sashimi, vegetable tempura and california cones are THE BEST. Add some beer to that and I am floating away I get SO bloated! But its worth it now and then. ;)
    I think staying on track is easier once I get the craving out of my head.

  2. I LOVE FRENCH FRIES! Typically from anywhere!! They are my pitfall and I think I could live on them all the time!!!

    1. ooooh ya. Me too. You can't go wrong with fries and lots of ketchup :) Homemade sweet potato fries are a pretty good alternative though!

  3. I am a Taco Bell girl too. When I bite into a bean burrito I hear angels sing!! Then an hour later that wonderful sound is replaced with the churning of my stomach. I then remember why I don't eat like this on a regular basis.

  4. I used to LOVE taco bell! I haven't been in years.... something is wrong with that! Im afraid if I go back to it I won't stop! lol!

  5. Being from Chicago we have the BEST pizza ( I may be a little bias haha) and better then just pizza... DEEP DISH! I could eat it every day. However, I must have been celebrating your birthday along side of you... Friday night I had deep dish and I didn't feel right until last night! Ugh! Always love reading! - Kathleen (cleanandleaner.blogspot.com)

    1. Isn't it crazy how long it makes you feel blahh!? I can't believe how much I used to eat fast food in college, I don't know how I could ever function!

  6. OOOOOOOO MYYY! Your arms are SUPER SEXY!!!! :D

    As for "cheating" - Don't do it. Ever. My "cheating" = eating too much salmon! LOL!

  7. Hey girl, I would be curious to know what weight you are lifting with each exercises?

  8. looks like a GREAT workout girl! i did some shoulder work today :) your progress is always inspiring xoxo love you friend
