20 Months Later, We Finally Tried R.I.P.P.E.D!

I apologize for not posting earlier but I had issues with my Internet, and while they still aren’t fixed, I was too antsy about waiting until tonight to blog that I sucked it up and am writing this via my phone. Anyone that knows me knows how much I detest writing lengthy emails on my phone, so this is true love to all my readers.

This morning I got off to a late start, which resulted in a 3.4 mile run. It killed me not to top it off at 3.5, but I wanted to get in core work and stretching and still make it to work on time.

This morning I made a fruity protein shake, which is surprising it came out fruity since I used 1 scoop each of Cookies & Cream and Dutch Chocolate. My strawberries and blueberries must have been overpowering!


Instead of my routine lunchtime workout, Jen and I decided to try the R.I.P.P.E.D (holy shit that was so frustrating to type out on a phone!) class that we’ve been talking about trying for the past month. Takes us awhile to get the ball rolling huh?!

The class wasn’t as difficult as I had imagined, but I got an amazing burn during the strength exercises and loved the different cardio routines that were thrown in. Eve, our instructor had us working out to release 3, instead of release 10 which I believe is the current one.

I will touch upon the class in my post tonight when I can get to a computer. I love you all, but not enough to break my fingers writing this post.

Oh, and another reason to check in later tonight…. I’m going to a psychic!! I have a 30 minute session, that I booked back in June. Lauren Rainbow is so good that I could get an appointment for almost 3 months. Lindsay and her Aunt went in the Spring and everything she said happened. I’m so excited and nervous at the same time. Hopefully I don’t throw up on her!

Gotta Love Deliveries.. Herbalife Came!

Today was a busy day! I switched up my normal lunch time routine and opted to head home to check out my Herbalife delivery. I’ve been patiently waiting for my products to arrive all week so I eagerly took lunch an hour and a half early to check out my new swag. 🙂

This box was heavy, weighing in at 36 pounds. It was a workout just carrying it inside and upstairs. Afternoon workout complete.

After playing around with my new Herbalife products and taking several vitamins, I headed over to the DMV to renew my duplicate license. Back in March, my car was broken into and gone went my license. Since I was residing in Los Angeles at the time, the DMV overnighted me a duplicate license, and since tomorrow is my half birthday (woo celebration!) the 6-month dup was due to expire. I was surprised and relieved when I left the DMV with a valid license after only an hour. Since I went around 1:30, I figured, along with my coworker, that I would be there for several hours.

The rest of the afternoon flew by at work, although I was extremely antsy to get to the gym and get a cardio workout in. I snacked on a Herbalife protein bar at the DMV to keep myself from passing out from hunger. I had made a protein shake for a lunch on the go while I headed to the DMV but it tasted like a dirty butt hole, so I nixed that sucker. Luckily I had a wrap at work that I had my mind-set on while having hunger hallucinations at the DMV.

Look at the extremely doughy corner. HEAVEN!

Turkey, ham, spinach and mustard wrap.

I had a great 1.6 mile run in the women’s gym while a Maksim Chmerkovskiy look-a-like trainer worked a lady in front of me. Talk about watching a GREAT show at the gym. I turned my iPod off just so I could hear his training tips to the lady. I told you I like getting a good deal, and I’m pretty sure watching and eavesdropping on a training session is one of the best deals you can snag. Side note, I did catch Maksim checking himself out in the mirror while the lady was lifting. Andddd I’m no longer attracted to you.
