Spring Workout Schedule

Thursday Workout: 1 hour Zumba and 1 hour BodyPump


I tried a different Zumba class at my gym after school today and I wasn’t really in love with it. I just didn’t think it was intense enough so I’ll have to try a different class in the future. I’ve been keeping to my BodyPump goal of 2-3x a week and went both Tuesday and Thursday this week.  I’m getting close to the amount of weight I was using a few months ago when I was going all the time.

I’ve come up with a workout schedule that I can hopefully stick to this spring.  I will start Hal Higdeon’s Novice 1 Marathon Plan on January 17 and want to continue to go to BodyPump.  If possible, maybe add in yoga on the off days.


I know that I will not be able to go to 3 BodyPump classes each week, but I know this schedule will help me stay flexible so I can move things around when necessary and get to at least two classes.


I used my new Le Creuset dutch oven to make dinner last night.  My Mom got it for me when we moved into the new house.


I made the same Chickpea and Dumplings recipe (Peas and Thank You) that I’ve posted a bunch of times already.  It is so good and easy to make! Doesn’t it look pretty in the red dutch oven? Ina would be so proud…

My Mom and I love the Barefoot Contessa (Food Network) and she always has her Le Creuset dutch ovens in her kitchen looking pretty.


Not really sure where this post is going… but I’m getting tired! I need to hop in the hot tub to make my sore muscles feel good, shower and get to bed! Have a happy Friday!




Mini Vacation

Saturday Workout: BodyPump!!! (1 hour)

Sunday Workout: off day!!


I was so happy to get to my BodyPump class Saturday morning! I start my half marathon plan this week, and my goal is to still take BodyPump 2 times a week.  This was one of my last free weekends without any plans and Colby and I decided to take a trip to his old college Saturday. Even though it was over 100 degrees, it was so nice seeing his campus and meeting friends!


People swimming in the river. We were melting trying to walk around so I could see the nice running paths and sandy beach area!

Love the panoramic function on my Sony camera!

On our way home today, we stopped to visit my friend Matt and went to lunch for his birthday!

Matt just got a Garmin 405 for his birthday and now we are Garmin twinsiessss :)

He is currently training for his first half marathon that will be a trail race in Pittsburgh!! Matt is using the half marathon plan that was in this month’s Runner’s World.

Yum yum yum! We started off with oysters on the half shell and followed with sandwiches. Colby and I feel like we need to do a few extra workouts this week to make up for all the food we ate this weekend!

Ready to start my half marathon plan this week! Even though it starts out with some short runs, it will be perfect for me.  I have not focused on running after the full marathon in May, and have not been running over 20 miles a week in awhile. This plan should get me back into the swing of things and still allow me to cross train with BodyPump class and yoga!

Switching my Tuesday run this week to Monday because I have will be busy all day Tuesday with work!
