My Muscles Need a Vacation

Wednesday Workout: 1 hour spin class

Last night, my friend Kim sneaked a picture of me bustin out some hot “Just Dance” Wii moves on my camera :) What a good friend … taking blog pictures of me doing awkward fake dance moves!

This morning, Colby went swimming and lifting early and when he finished we were starving and went to a diner for breakfast with all the old people.

We were seriously the youngest people in there and LOVE that breakfast is like $2. The old guy behind me kept hogging the booth with his arm…

Oh my gosh… boyfriend of the year that poses with his food for the blog :)

After we ate, we ran a bunch of errands: Kohls for Colby to buy new shirts/shorts for the beach, haircut for Colby and Target for us to get sunscreen and stuff I don’t need like…

This nail polish that I think looks so Summer-ish and when I got home realized it is Tiffany blue :)  I’ll paint my finger and toenails tonight and see how I like it.  I seriously have the worst fingernails because I keep them so short for playing the violin.  My feet also look like a train wreck because two toenails are in the process of growing back after I lost them during marathon training.  I’m sure you needed to know that :)

This tank top that I wore to spin class tonight.  Who doesn’t need another tank top?

Before I could go to spin, I had to go to the Post Office to mail out 2 boxes.  One was a pair of really cute black TOMS wedges I got from my Mom for Christmas that are a 1/2 size too small. So, finally I sent them out today so I can actually get the bigger size and wear them this summer! The other box was wedding music and text books I borrowed from a friend.  Text books…. gagggg I have to start another master’s class in July :(   **tearsssss**

Why is the line at the Post Office always SO LONG!??!? I should have left earlier because I went in without tape and had to buy that and tape up the boxes and wait in line FOREVER!! Then I was late to spin class and missed the first 5 minutes. That’s okay because it still kicked my butt.  My triceps and shoulders are still sooooo sore from BodyPump yesterday, so of course the spin instructor had us hold small weights and do shoulder work in the middle of the class while we were spinning…. whyyyyyyy?!?!

At spin I realized I broke my water bottle when I dropped it in the driveway yesterday :(  I love this waterbottle. It is aluminum and changes to dark pink when you fill it with cold water! It’s not leaking yet, so I’ll keep using it until it dies.

Happy to be back in the car after spin class.

This picture is for Kristy, who doesn’t think I sweat when I take BodyPump or spin class!  I always towel off my sweat before I take my glamour shots for you! Look at that hair, I definitely worked out a lot.

Now I’m off to roll out my legs so I can walk tomorrow…

I’m supposed to go to a BodyPump class tomorrow with my friend Anne, so I need to take it easy!! I made a protein/recovery shake when I got home and I’m ready for a shower and some TV time tonight :)

  1. Goodness, I was thinking of so many things to discuss as I was reading this and now I forget them all! Let’s see what I remember? One–what does it say on your grey sweatshirt in the first pic? It looks like the font for IUP (Indiana University of PA) and that’s where I graduated! Okay, YUM on the breakfasts!! I LOVE diners–they are so cheap, you get tons of food (which is why I never go that often, haa!) and the old peeps are so cute. I’m dreading going to Target soon because I haven’t been in about a month, and I fear that I will now end up with that Tiffany nailpolish instead of my La Croix water which is all I need there. But, I may also end up with a tank top, because you can just never have enough. I also ordered my very own foam roller last night and it should arrive tomorrow. I’m afraid because I hear that it hurts, but I’m in desperate need of working out the kinks. Okay, that’s it!

    • YES IUP!!!! :) That’s where I went for Music Ed! Omygoodness we are long lost twins! Seriously, you will LOVE the foam roller. Yes, it hurts the first time but just keep using it all day long! Especially important right after you run!

      • I knew it! I know that logo anywhere!! :-) Haha, we ARE long lost twins–it’s crazy!!! I just tracked my package online, so Mr. FedEx man should be bringing my roller tomorrow and I can’t wait! I will attempt to take action shots, lol!

      • The IUP “block letters” … I <3 them and my grey sweatshirt is starting to fall apart. I went to IUP this Spring to visit a friend and they knocked down all the old dorms and put up these gorgeous suits. New buildings too! It looks SO NICE!

  2. Okay, I can’t really believe you eat all that food!! But I guess all that exercise blows off those calories. That’s motivation for me to keep up the exercise. I broke out the kettle bells yesterday for my strength training & I am feeling it this morning! I may take you up on that Body Pump class though.

    Just went to Tiffany’s last night…couldn’t afford a damn thing, but I love the polish. May need to purchase it so I feel Tiffany-like. Today’s an off exercise for me. Thinking about going to Target to check out the foam roller.

    Keep rockin’, keep rollin’!

    • Haha thanks! Yeah… I do eat a lot on days when I exercise. When I am running and doing BodyPump on the same day I think I burn about 800-900 calories!! I actually gained like 5 lbs when I did my marathon training because I was so hungry all the time. I ate like every 2 hours…seriously. GET A FOAM ROLLER!!! They are AWESOME! I did it for the first time in a few days last night and it made my legs feel 100% better today. It hurts in a good way the first few times! I don’t usually wear blue polish so my toenails are kinda freakin me out today!

  3. Hey HOLLY, what a great name :D
    Just found your blog & wanted to tell you that it’s so cute! I love it!!
    & your bf definitely gets bf of the year…my husband still makes fun of me (& I’ve had my blog for over a year) for taking pictures of food..I told him he better get over it ;)
    LOVE that name polish! I’m a freak about nail polish, I buy it all of the time…it’s out of control- haha!
