Snow Dazed / The Hot Mess Express

February 13, 2014

Well friends, I have been officially snowed in for 24 hours. I live in south Charlotte, NC and we had almost a foot of snow.


When I got home yesterday, Marty was in a trance watching the snow.


I decided to get glamorous, duh. I put on my finest cotton PJ pants that are two sizes too big, a long black and grey cami, and a sweatshirt that has a nice big stain on it. Not to mention my hair has not been washed in two days, no makeup except for a little mascara that did not get washed off the night before, and the purple rubberband holding my hair in a ponytail is from my asparagus. #TheHotMessExpress

I was able to spend a lot of the afternoon working, on two different computers, with a cat that wanted a lot of attention. So that was fun.


Later in the evening I was going crazy and I needed to exercise. However, I had to get creative and improvise. Here is what I came up with, ha...

I moved some of my furniture and made a clear spot so I could get to work.


And I don't know what the hell happened or what exactly I did, but it was an awesome work out. I did it for an hour and 20 minutes. I was drenched is sweat when I finished.

I started with a 13 minute warm up doing "mini suicides". I would then do jump squats, burpees, mountain climbers, kickboxing cardio movies, walking lunges, ran in place - I literally just MOVED. Oh and I also did the Wop dance, Cupid Shuffle, and Cha Cha Slide. Ha!

It definitely was "The Hot Mess Express Workout" (my theme) but it worked. I blasted my music and moved my body.


I am way sore from it! 

Earlier today, I walked was able to walk across the street to Earthfare to get a couple of goodies to last me. Thank you Earthfare for being open!


Around 3PM, the sun finally decided to make an appearance! It melted a lot of the snow, but unfortunately, it will all be turning to ice tonight.


I wanted to go to the gym, but it was closed. My apartment gym was so crowded that nothing was available for use. Thus, I did my home workout again. Man that damn work out is tough. Like I said, no excuses, baby! If you want it, you get it.

I have to be at work at 10 AM tomorrow. Hopefully it will not be too icy, say a little prayer for me. Stay warm you guys and have a great weekend!

  4. Doesn't it make you want to visit the Midwest so you can experience that snowstorm craziness EVERY year? Haha. I'm glad you're holding up well and way to improvise with the at-home workout! Still kicking so much butt!!! Also, I think Apollo and Luigi would like a play date with Marty. I think they'd be BFFs if they ever got the chance ; ).

  8. Being snowed in doesn't sound too fun, hopefully you are able to get out of the house soon. That picture of Marty cracks me up! You definitely don't look like a hot mess, if I looked that good without washing my hair for a couple of days and lounging around in pajamas I would be one happy girl. Plus you have the cutest voice, I love it! I wish I had an accent!

  12. Love your creativity! Sometimes the best workouts are "non-workouts!" :)

  13. Being snowed in sucks. I live in Minnesota so I'm used to the massive amounts of snow, but even though we are prepared, a heavy snowfall even gets us down - sometimes. Way to stick it out! :)
