Hot and Healthy--Week 5!

Um...okay. So, the last I checked...we were just starting this Hot and Healthy gig...are we really starting week 5?!?!?!?!?


Where does the time go?

I mean, seriously...where does it go?

Okie dokie!! Let's get down to business!!

So we said last week that we'd be upping the cardio the new time will be 4hrs of can spread that however you want throughout the week..

For instance you could do an hour each for only 4 days of exercise or you can do half hour one day..and a hour the next..It's up to you!

As for the Pilates..we'd like for you to do all 4 of the exercise's..It'd be great if you did them all at one time..but if you want, you can do abs one day and legs the next.

Starting Week 5...seeing any progress?

any progress that I may have seen, seems to have been undone by Thanksgiving.

I take that back.

Thanksgiving Day, I was great. It was the Saturday, ginormous celebration that did me in.

Next time, I think I'm joining in the football game.

Do you feel like you are "gettin' your groove on"? A nice routine?

Life seems to be getting in the way of my routine! I'm having a hard time fitting in exercise in between work, shopping, cooking, caring for 5 children and husband, shopping.

I need some tips on how to fit it in. Help me!

Are Keely's Pilates exercises kickin' your butt (in a good way)?

Keely kicks my butt at everything...she is a fitness rockstar, and I envy her dedication!!

But, um...I'm skirting the question!

No...for one thing, everytime I think about doing the Pilates exercises...I contemplate on how on earth I'll watch them from the floor while my monitor is up on the desk.

Oh, woe is me.

How about the Healthy tips from Mama M.?

Well, up until Thanksgiving, I was doing great! Better than I ever had with eating right!

And man! When I'm at work I am chug-a-luggin' that water like it's no tomorrow.

At home? That's another story...I think it helps having an ice and water machine at work.

Maybe, when I win the lottery, I'll invest in an ice and water machine.

All right, ladies!! Let's hear it! Time for a little MckLinky action!

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here: Halo Braid Tutorial! Let me know how it goes!
I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!
Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

Crock-Pot Fajitas

Yes, YOU!!
You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.
Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post you know how to make it...
But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later!
Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
And this story...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;)
So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
You'll need this:
And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
