December Playlist + Updates

Hey guys,  

I hope you all had a fabulous holiday!  It's been a while since I updated the fitness segment of Sensible Stylista, so I figured I should get on that. I've actually been working out fairly diligently.  I felt bad that my "Ripped in 30" challenge fell through, so I'm doing it now.  Better late than never, right? I started a few days ago, so I'll make sure to update you guys soon.  I weighed myself this morning, and to my dismay, I gained a few pounds.  I wasn't surprised though.  I've been eating myself stupid.  Darn cookies and cakes!  I weigh about 116 now, but I'm hoping to drop a few pounds before school starts!  Anyways, I wanted to share my December playlist with you all before 2012 ended =P

December Playlist:
1.  Genesis - Justice (3:54)
2.  Sweet Nothing - Calvin Harris ft.  Florence Welch (3:33)
3.  Scream & Shout - Britney Spears ft. (4:30)
4.  Lava Lava - Boys Noize (4:01)
5.  Go Ape - Far East Movement (3:30)
6.  Va Va Voom - Nicki Minaj (3:04)
7.  Work It Out - Lil Jon ft. Pitbull (3:44)
8.  Amazing - Inna (3:29)

November Workout Playlist

Hey guys, 

Sorry I've been so flaky with the fitness segment of Sensible Stylista AND that my 30-day-rip challenge fell through.  I promise to try and be more consistent with my updates from now on!  

Anywho, I try to fit in cardio three days a week, but sometimes cardio (in the gym) can be so boring, that's why I always make sure to have fun, upbeat songs on my ipod shuffle.  Also, I tend to use the Elliptical more often than not because I feel like a hamster when I run on the treadmill.  

Here's my current playlist:

1.  Pound the Alarm - Nicki Minaj (3:26)
2.  Hello - Karmin (3:58)
3.  Promises - Nero (4:17)
4.  Commander - Kelly Rowland & David Guetta (3:39)
5.  Go Girl - Pitbull (3:50)
6.  Buzzin - Mann (3:16)
7.  Sexy And I Know It - LMFAO (3:20)
8.  Hot - Inna (3:42)
9.  Dirty Bass - Far East Movement ft. Tyga (3:30)
10. Only Girl (In The World) - Rihanna (3:56) 
11. The Way I Are - Timbaland ft. Keri Hilson (2:59)
12.  Revolver - Madonna vs. David Guetta One Love Remix (3:00)

What kind of music do you guys like to listen to during your workout sessions?

Day 1: Ripped in 30

Starting weight:  112.6 lbs

*The DVD contains 4 different work-outs...
*I'll be exercising 6 days a week, taking a day to recover...

An overall breakdown of "Ripped in 30":

*3 circuits
*3-2-1 system; 3 minutes of strength training, 2 minutes of cardio, and 1 minute of abs.  You repeat exercises twice throughout the video...
*You only need a set of weights - I use two 5-lb dumbbells

Drop by tomorrow to read a more detailed review of Week 1...

Diet Guidelines

After splurging non-stop this weekend, I definitely need to start eating clean again. 

My Dieting Rules:

1.  Acceptable beverages: water, coffee, tea, and milk (skim or 1%).

2.  Eliminate sweets entirely.

3.  Three solid meals a day.  Each meal must contain palm-size amounts of lean proteins, starches, fruits, and vegetables.  I'll REFUSE to starve myself to lose weight.  I'm going to do it the RIGHT way...=)

4.  Try to avoid processed foods.  "If you can't farm it, fish it, or hunt it, then scrap it..." This is by far the most difficult rule on my list!

5.  Incorporate healthy fats into meals, i.e. slices of avocado in your sandwich/salad, natural peanut butter with apple wedges, etc.

6.  One cheat meal a week.  I mean, I need SOMETHING to look forward to!  =)

My goal is to become extremely FIT.  I don't just want to lose weight - numbers don't mean jack. Anyways, I'll be tackling several different fitness challenges this year; I'll make sure to update you guys with my progress as often as I can.  I start Jillian Michaels' "Ripped in 30" tomorrow... =)

Hey everyone,

I'm sorry my Fitness page has been under construction for so long.  I've been focusing on the Style and Beauty segments of Sensible Stylista, but I promise to start updating this part ASAP! I'm planning to start posting after my cousin's wedding (Sept. 7th). 

Check back to read reviews about exercise DVDs and fitness/diet trends. I'm still in the process of brainstorming ideas for this segment, so feel free to make requests.
