Day 2 of bring your breakfast to work was successful. Full disclosure, I also have a bagel waiting for me because this won’t tide me over through lunch.

Also, I went to Zumba Monday night and I don’t know what happened but it was hard! Don’t get me wrong, I get a good workout but it’s usually not something that’s hard for me. Thankfully I was not the only one who thought it was hard. Thirty minutes in, the girl next to me said, I thought we were almost done. How are we only 30 minutes in?? Amen, lady. Amen.

My legs were TIRED yesterday but I knew if I didn’t go to kickboxing over lunch, I wouldn’t work out today and then it would be Thursday before I worked out again, so I went.

Let me tell you, I have earned my rest day today!

Higher Kicks
Stronger Kicks
Sexier Kicks

This is a routine I’ve used over the years. It’s great for opening up your hips and strengthening your kicks.

Soooo, I’ve been neglecting my Naruto MMA AU, and I figured a good way to get it jumpstarted was with a picture.  I asked @natto-nguyen if she’d oblige, and she pulled through.  I used a picture of Gina Carano as a reference.  

Doesn’t Hinata look stunning?  She could definitely take down Ronda Rousey.  Holly Holm may be a bit of a challenge.

In my MMA AU, Hinata is the daughter of famed coach Hiashi Hyuga, and her husband is rising star Naruto Uzumaki.  Hinata’s kickboxing championships have lead her down the road to the octagon, and she’s learning her ground game from Naruto, the #1 unpredictable fighter.

However she still gets flustered when she’s rolling with Naruto.
