Monday: 45 minute Yoga class at Gold’s Gym and 15 minutes on elliptical
For the past few weeks, I felt like I didn’t have anything to post about… so I didn’t. I’m finished with my Marathon that was on May 20 and my workouts have been all over the place. Just because I’m not running 20-30 miles a week anymore doesn’t mean I shouldn’t update the blog with my workouts!
For the past year or so, I’ve felt like my workouts were always towards a goal. Usually my goal is a race, but I have decided not to train for a half or full marathon this summer or fall. I’m getting married early October and honeymooning in Hawaii and THAT is my goal. I want to look good and that might be vain but it is honest. After eating carb after carb after carb all winter long (Totally unnecessary and I tend to do that when I’m training for a marathon) I needed a break and a better diet. I have been eating lots of salads, smoothies and healthy dinners and doing shorter workouts. I’ve also been doing all kinds of different workouts, like BodyPump, CXWORX (30 minute core class), yoga, pilates, running, elliptical and some killer YouTube videos from the Tone It Up girls. I just want to switch it up and keep challenging my body.
Do this workout. It is short and I didn’t think it would do much. I was sore for the next two days. This yoga slideshow from fitsugar was also great and a little too hard for me.
Colby and I have gone to a wedding for the past three weekends. The first one, Colby was in and I played violin for the second one. We were really looking forward to the third that was this past Saturday, because it is one of Colby’s best friends and we were really able to enjoy ourselves.
The groom’s parents breed yorkies and they know my obsession with them because of my parent’s yorkie. Look at this little face!!!
I kinda wanted to sneak him in my purse and take him home. This was Friday night when the groom’s parents had a big party at their house. So much fun! Oh, by the way my post title is because I got sick last week. Why would I get sick over the summer when I am away from little kids at school?? I was really feeling bad Thursday and worried about the wedding weekend. I found some hard core sinus medicine at Target and it has really kicked it out of me! 12-hour suddafed knock off and it is a miracle!
This is from Saturday night before the reception started. Short story about this dress. I wore it for a wedding two years ago and tried it on Friday morning just to make sure it looked okay. It was so tight I could barely zipper it and had a complete melt down and flipped out. Poor Colby. I ran 5 miles on the hotel treadmill Saturday morning and sweated so much in the hot room that the dress fit for Saturday night! Woo hoo!! I had other back up dresses with me but was happy I could wear it and slightly embarrassed by my meltdown. This guy is a keeper
Nice and sweaty from practicing our dance moves for our wedding.
So, you will most likely hear from me a bit more now. I just felt like I shouldn’t post if I wasn’t running that much, but who really cares about my mile splits anyways?!? I’m going to try to track my different workouts I do to get into bikini Hawaii shape by October 6 (our wedding date!) Even when I wasn’t posting, I still like to update my Exercise Log so I can keep track of my workouts for myself. Please feel free to check up on me and stalk
