I love to go to the gym and work out, but sometimes its honestly just not possible....I may miss a day here and I love some at home easy workouts. 
For the work outs I'm going to show you, you'll need two things....

Any size medicine ball.
Any size weights. 

Start as you normally would with bicep curls, with your arms fully extended at your sides. Curl the weights halfway up and lower back down for seven reps.  Lift the weights only half way each time.
Then start at the half way point and do another seven reps to the top motion.
Lastly do another seven full reps from bottom all the way to top motion.

Do 21's  in three to four sets. 

Stand with feet wider than shoulder width, holding your medicine ball above your head, arms straight and abs contracted. Bend your knees to squat down while moving your ball in an arc across your body,  bringing it to the outside of your calf.  Reverse the move and return to starting position, raising the ball as you stand.
Repeat on opposite side.

3 reps of 20 on each side. 

Muscles worked: 
External obliques 
Internal obliques 
Gluteus maximus 
Middle deltois
Anterior deltoids
Transverse abdominis

this routine also totally kicks my trash and you don't need any free weights.

Like usual I took my photo outside! Our lighting is awful. I know I say this almost every post, but it really is and this still is not the best lighting... I promise it was even prettier and more delicious than this picture gives it justice.

Pico de gallo
4 cups ripe red tomatoes diced
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/4 cup diced onion (about 1/4 of a small white onion)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 jalapenos (stems and seeds removed optional) diced
1/2 cup green onions 
1 lime, juiced
Salt to taste

1. Mix all the ingredients, simple right!!!!

One pound...ha yay:)
So I wont lie I was a little disappointed in today's weigh in....until I remembered this picture. However I do think it is time to start thinking about some more short term goals...It may take to long to hit where I would like to be while staying motivated if I don't. SOOOO should we say lets try for two pounds by next MMM!:) and if I hit my goal..I'm totally treating myself to a manicure!:) 

and just to make you smile..
bla ha ha!!
