Here is the choreography that we learned today. We get to learn new steps every week and get to video the entire routine at the end of 3rd week then we learn new stuff…yay! I am sooooo happy that I found FUNKMODE and so excited to learn new steps. Mind you, we didn’t consume the entire 1.5 hours with learning just this, the first hour we did freestyle moves and stretching exercises also upper body workouts (me doing push-ups, WHAT!?!). This is the best workout ever and sweated like cray-zeh! My towel was soaked that I might need to bring a bigger one next time LOL!


My workout for today! Pray for me that I don’t break anything! Lol!


THANK YOU FUNKMODE!!! http://funkmode.com/


FACE MELT IN FULL EFFECT! 10,000 steps babyyyyy!!!


No walk/run today but did upper body workout using resistance bands. One rep (for now…lol!) each of the arm curl, lunge, tricep kickback, side raise, front raise, shoulder squeeze, tricep extension and abductor & hip raises. And now, my boy is begging to go to the new Toys R Us and hubby called to remind me to go to Costco to pick up a few stuff *sigh* I’m out of breath! LOL!

Yay! A little faster this time!!!

Did my first “training” today! I simply walked since I don’t want to shock my system with a full workout…just a little warm up. I know it’s not much but I hope to eventually get there 🙂

Uhm…note to self —> remove make-up before “melting face” — DOH!

I don’t usually pay attention to the ads in Facebook but don’t know what made me glance through it yesterday. “Go Dirty Girl” it says and there’s a picture of three women covered in mud. I guess my curiosity (yes, that was my thought and I’m sticking to it!) drove me to click on it and it took me to the Go Dirty Girl Facebook page and that’s when I felt this overwhelming desire to GET DIRTY!

What is “Dirty Girl”?

Dirty Girl is a 5k mud run for women of all ages and athletic abilities. Don’t worry; it’s not a “race” in the traditional sense. It is an untimed obstacle course designed to push you slightly out of your comfort zone, but only as far as you are comfortable going. Forming teams is encouraged, and so is helping your fellow Dirty Girls get through to the finish. At a Dirty Girl Mud Run you’ll find excitement, laughter, and camaraderie—as well as lots of music and even some adult beverages. It’s a day you’ll never forget.

THIS IS FREAKIN’ AWESOME! Reading it I thought “This is so ME!”

Just so you know, I will be 40 next year and been trying to come up with a memorable experience so that I can tell people that “Hey! I rocked this at 40!” At first I thought maybe running my first half-marathon or join my husband for a hike in Yosemite. As much as I want to accomplish those feats, they’re not me. I want to do something that screams ME and Dirty Girl, this is ME! It has my name written all over it! This will be my memorable experience at 40 so why not blog about it and immortalize this awesome experience to share with everyone.

I will try to keep this blog updated so you can take this journey with me. I’m not a writer so don’t expect much but I’ll do my best to keep it as interesting and fun along the way.

Training to Become a Dirty Girl

I am not in the best shape at all so I need all the time to prepare for this. Dirty Girl recommends doing some light cardio a couple times per week paired with some upper body strengthening to help get up and over the obstacles.  I will start walking today and hopefully run again. After spraining my left ankle over 8 years ago, I never attempted to run in fear that I will mess it up again but I hope to slowly gain strength and go back to running since I really enjoyed it when I was still able to do so. I also enrolled in a hip-hop class that will be starting this Saturday for cardio and maybe some biceps curl to start (sloooooow start, ok).  The hip-hop class is recorded so I hope I could share those with you too.
