Entering Week 3..

week 3 ” All you have to do, is do it”

Today is Monday the 13th, quoting my co-worker “This is possibly worst then Friday the 13th.” This can very well be true, if you let it.

I woke up this morning with no attitude to workout later. I have work from 8am to 5pm,

and class from 5pm-7:40pm, which allows me to go to the gym after 8pm. A long day is ahead but I have to keep the goal in sight.

I am doing this not because I have to or because I want to look good for other people, but because it makes me feel better about

myself. I went to the gym all last week, hence the weekend I might have fallen of the wagon, but I did

work hard last week. Resulting in some minor changes in my body. They are small but I feel so much better.

I took a famous “Mirror picture” this weekend and was so proud of what I saw.

I am posting my FAVORITE workout which I did last Friday! It really is amazing. I love it because

I am not really in shape and I do not have much stamina and most times when I do too much exercise I feel sick and

will want to throw up. This could also be because I do not drink enough water, which I am starting to enjoy!

But I have do have trouble finding a workout that doesn’t leave me wanting to puke. It is called Treadmill Shreadmill!

It makes you sweat A LOT, without leaving you out of breath. It is directed for toning your legs and booty, but

I found that I sweat so much, I don’t even have to run! I absolutely love it. I will be doing this workout twice a week for now,

til I change up the routine!

Thanks for checking it out!

Hope your resolutions are coming through!

 It really doesn’t feel like 50mins!! (I didn’t even know a treadmill inclined to 15) 😀

Try it! Let me know how you like it!

School has began.. and so has the stress.

Capture

School has started, which makes life a little more interesting and difficult at the same time.

Between classes and going back and forward at work, sometimes I find it hard to blog about my daily exercise. But as most people may say, if you want to get something done you’ll find a way or if you don’t want it done, you’ll find an excuse. I am hope to prove to myself that this year I can keep my resolutions. In order to do so, I have made a short list of things I need to keep in mind. (always)

1. Be honest with myself and others.

2. Only make promises you plan on keeping.

3. You are to blessed to be stressed.

4. We are human and we all make mistakes. Get up and keep moving.

Sometimes when you make a resolution and fail, you decide it is easier to just give up. Well, that is what I would have done last year, actually that is what I did last year. I failed and didn’t think it was worth starting over. But this year, this year has to be different. If not this year, then when?

I want to be the person that I look for in others. I want to be the person that when I go to bed at night, I am happy to be with.

I found that running releases a lot of thoughts and stress, so for this posted I wanted to share my jog with you.

I am fortunate to be at a University that recently created a jogging path. It is located in our Nature Preserve, which gives it beautiful scenery. There are stations with different exercises, like sit-ups and push ups.

Take the time to take a jog around your local park, or Google a jogging or bicycle path around your neighborhood. You will be happy you did.

XOXO, Averageoria, Your Average Joe

Dinner- Zucchini Tacos!

Zucchini

Not the prettiest picture, but it sure taste amazing!

Looking for a healthy dinner!! Look no more!

Zucchini is one of my favorite veggies! These here are my zucchini tacos.

You can treat them like regular tacos, add anything you would normally add to your tacos!

Here are the step by step process.

Gather you medium size zucchini, make sure to wash them thoroughly. Then, cut them long length in half.

After cutting them in half, you can use a small spoon to scoop out the inside of the zucchini, making a boat effect. Make sure not to scoop all the way to the end, you what there to be a border so the fillings doesn’t  fall out. (Don’t mind the sliced zucchini, those are for tomorrow’s steak dinner)

Now, that they are all cut and cleaned, you can use a cooking brush to apply a little

oil to the inside of the zucchini, this will help the zucchini cook nicely in the oven.

This step is by all means optional, also spraying a little PAM works just as well.

I cook them for about 10 minutes at about 350, meanwhile I am cooking the ground beef. You can use chicken, turkey ground beef or fajita meat.

Which ever you chose will taste amazing!

Then, you fill them with all the goodies. You add your meat, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream or plain Greek yogurt and any other yummy condiments.

I eat about two boats, that’s enough to get me filled, which is only 1 zucchini! Amazing huh!

Well, I hope you guys try this recipe out! Let me know how you liked it or didn’t!!

Thanks again everyone for reading! Thanks!!

Cinnamon Bun Break!!

Hello Everyone!

I am so sorry that I was not able to post this yesterday, I was at my mother’s house and she has no

INTERNET! Amazing huh?

So, I didn’t bake these amazing Cinnamon buns, but they are definitely worth posting.

Knaus Berry Farm is located in the Redlands of Florida and has been open for 50 years!

It is a very small shack where the Knaus family sells naturally grown produce such as lettuce, corn, zucchini, and tomatoes. The family is pretty famous in the Miami and Homestead area because of their amazing baked goods. Just from the Cinnamon buns, dinner rolls and pies the Knaus Berry Farm maintains lines of customers that can easily go around the curb!! It truly is amazing.

I went for the first time yesterday, with my mother, sister and boyfriend and we were not disappointed. I have not made cinnamon buns from scratch but this really did motivate me to find out how. I will hopefully make them this weekend and post the recipe and how to’s! I am very excited.

For now, I hope if you are ever in Miami during Nov-April that you come out to Knaus Berry and try their cinnamon buns!! You wont regret it!

Sorry for the short post guys! Promise to post more daily routines and progress!!

XOXO- Averageoria,Your Average Joe

Day 2- 8tracks is your bestfriend!!

Good morning everyone!!

Today is the third day of the new year! Who’s still got the motivation to do our resolutions?

I found it a little harder to get moving for my last night workout. So I searched for ways to motivate myself.

Sometimes, buying new workout gear helps, such as shoes or new spanks, but those are the things I got for Xmas.

So… I looked for a good workout mix, so I could jam out to while working out. I used to use Pandora, but one of my co-workers introduced me

to 8tracks.com and it has changed my life!! It allows you to choose your moods, such as

tracks.

Making it so much easier to choose a great mix.

Last night, I decided to do my workout video. Its about 20 mins long, just enough to get my body moving.

I am using a Jenny Craig video, and it is amazing!!

If you need more motivation, check out The Biggest Loser or Extreme Weight Lost!! Both Bob, Chris and Jil are AMAZING!!

Side Note: Don’t Bob and Chris look so much alike? I use to think they were the same person for a while!!

I’ll save you the Google search..

bob

Who agrees?

Okay, back to working out!

Here is the video I used and the workout mix I used! I hope you guys keep up the resolutions!

Ohh, and a picture of my new sneakers from Christmas!

Let me know how you guys are doing!!!

XOXO- Averageoria, Your Average Joe!

Any workout video will help to keep you motivated when working out at home!!
