Shakira - Loca (Featuring El Cata) - Video



I know, I know, AGAIN I win the worst blogger of the year award. LOL. I deserve it. I neglect this poor little thing all too often. Funny enough, it's not because I don't have things to write.... I lack the time to put it into words. Well, that and internet connection. Good news? After 1 month of waiting for Cablemas to come and hook up our connection they have. Yes, 1 month. I will never understand why they told us 4 days, but what can one do here? Get over it!


What else can I say? Ohhh.... Remember about 2 months ago I wrote that I've been really working out, and getting back into shape? Well - I am still going strong. I run almost every day, and lift weights. Recently I've began adding in other things : Spinning, Kenpo, Yoga. I love it.

Have I lost weight? No, actually gained two pounds. However, yes, I am aware that muscle weighs more than fat. My clothes are not as tight, and I can see a huge difference. My arms are toned, and my legs are getting tighter....

One of the BEST things is I listen to music to get me through a good sweat session, and one thing we are not short of in Mexico is music, and music channels. Well, I am just in love with this music video of Shakiras. Can you see her abs in this video? For me, it is motivation to keep on running.... Loca? I don't think so.

Hope you enjoy the video :)

Good to hear you're doing well, amiga. Wish I could find a good yoga class here. Or at least a video. Keep up the healthy habits. :-)

Alice said...

Amanda - It's tough right? To just sit down and do it. Especially for me as I'm not a great writer... LOL!! Yes, once your done with your pregnancy then you can worry about it, for now enjoy!!!

Leah - Thanks amiga!!! You should check out Womens Health magazine's website, they have great videos!!

KfromMich - awww....you know what? I am still lazy, but I force myself to do it! Hahaha, I get up and first thing I do? Put on my workout gear. Then I almost have no excuse!!! Find your "thing" that works!!! Oh and I promise I'll try my best not to!!

Gringation - ammiga, for me dieting is sooo not worth it! I love food too much! Good thing for me is I don't like a lot of the junk food here. I miss chips from back home, so dont' eat ANY here. Also, pop? Way too sweet here for me!! I stay away from that stuff!! Working out is worth it... for me!

Ashlie & Alice- Thanks amigas! Kenpo is a form of martial arts...I believe Japanese martial arts... A combination actually. It's wonderful, and you can feel it the next day for sure!! It's a FULL cardio workout :)
