Today's workout was the usual looooong Tuesday workout.  I always have to work my chest, triceps, back and biceps on the same day in order to get every workout in for the week.  So after about 1 hour and 15 minutes of lifting I ran somewhere between 6.5 and 7 miles.  I REALLY wanted to do 8 miles but I ran out of time.  I had a hard time finding a quiet treadmill, maybe if it would stop raining I could go outside...that would be nice.  I also had to pull a Mr. Roger's and change my shoes after 1.5 miles.  So you may be wondering why on earth I would change shoes, I'm sure the people around me thought the same thing.  Well, seems how I am a shoe salesman :) at 26.2 Running Co. I was given a FREEEEE pair of K-Swiss K-ona running shoes.  Thank you Seth and K-Swiss for the hook up!  Apparently, they don't have enough support for me little feet to run in.  But they are cute and I did get a number of compliments on them this morning, so they will be used for work and for galavanting around the town.
Plus, they are REALLY good at giving Kobe a kick in the pants.
Kobe tried popping in the photo again so I told him if I could kick his rear he could be in it.  He was trilled to the gills and as you can see it hurt him real bad ;)
So as I said earlier, I am a shoe salesman.  When I told my sweet little Mama Jex that I got a job at a running store, she said "Oh...so you are a shoe salesman?"  I like to think of it as being a little bit more than that but I guess I should be a proud shoe salesman like Al Bundy ;)
So I must tell you how EXTREMELY sore I am and I have this little magical wheel to thank for it.
I like to go real low so that it not only works my abs but also my back and shoulders.
Every time I use this little beauty I get so sore that I feel like my ribs are bruised and I LOVE IT!  I know I am a bit strange but then I know that I got a good workout.
Now a mistake that most people make when working out is they do the same thing over and over and over... I think you get it.
They figure if it got them sore the first time that it must be good and they continue to do it for the next 4 years.  If you think I am over exaggerating, I'm not.  I see it everyday.
Your muscles will only continue to grow and change if you confuse them.  You HAVE to mix it up or you will not see results.
What I am going to show you next is quite possibly the most delicious thing and it IS the breakfast of champions!

This is my breakfast EVERY single day.  I am not ashamed to show the world that I can suck down a smoothie the size of Texas.  It's my favorite and I have been known to have a second one as a snack later in the day, minus the oats and spinach.  I think I am addicted to this delicious little concoction and I may need some help.  I do not leave home without that Magic Bullet, it is invited on ALL vacations!
After cleaning up the old home front I headed out to find me some reading material for the flight to Florida.  This guy amazes me and I can't wait to see how he could possibly manage to run 50 marathons in 50 days.  Just recently, he ran 3000 miles in 60 days.  He started at Disneyland and ended in New York, amazing!

I am so very excited for the Biggest Loser Season Finale!  If you haven't ever watched it I would highly recommend it.  I had never seen it before and watched a season finale and then I couldn't wait for the next season to start.  It is soooo inspiring!

Do you eat the same things everyday or do you mix it up?

I eat the same thing for breakfast and lunch pretty much everyday.

What shows do you love to watch?

The Biggest Loser is the only show that I really watch anymore.  Although, I love Ellen and The Office.  I just never have time to sit and watch them. 

What items can you just not go without for a week?

The Magic Bullet and working out, it's a good thing you can run anywhere :)

By the way, once I hit 100 followers there will be a GIVEAWAY so please follow me :)


  1. Yay the comments work! Tell Mama Jex you are so much more then a shoe salesman, you are a running expert! I love me my oatmeal for breakfast and every once in a while some multi grain cheerios with a banana. My fav shows would have to be Biggest Loser, The Office, Parks and Rec, and any random show I record. Particularly ones with heroin addicts and morbidly obese little people j/k kinda! I can't live without my running shoes and running!

  2. Stephanie I love your blog!! I had no idea you were a personal trainer, that is awesome and I am so excited to read about all of your awesome tips.

    I am so jealous of your job at 26.2 and your free shoes. All I get at the hospital is a free flu shot. ;)

    BTW you look absolutely AMAZING!! Seriously you are so ripped. I love biggest looser too. It makes me cry every single week. Have a good night and again I am so excited about your blog. yay!

  3. You are still as cute as ever. I love reading your blog--you crack me up. I love my magic bullet too. This week I have been having a protein smoothie with raspberries, and kodiak pancakes. Yum! I would like to know how you create this smoothie concoction of yours.

    btw this is Andrea

  4. Smoothie looks good! I would love the reciepe (you should post it). Anyway, tip from an old dietitian? It is as important for your body to have a varied diet as a varied workout. Really! But, maybe I am just old school :).
