Great workout.

I just got home from the gym and I had a really great workout. Well, aside from the fact that I felt like I was going to throw up near the end of my run. Run? Jog? I don't know what to call it.

Today I ran farther and longer running intervals. That's a win in my book.

My sister-in-law Rebecca, who lives in Boston (both of my sisters-in-law are named Rebecca so I have to specify) is who motivated me to start running again. For weeks, I would see her Run 5K updates on Twitter and it made me really want to start running again. So, this week I did and it's going really well. The fact that it's going so well makes me excited for my run tomorrow.

I wanted to share. Anyway, I need to get cleaned up now. Have a lovely Saturday! Below is my picture from the workout today. To keep track of my distance and time I usually just take a picture of my workout summary. Adios!

Yet again.

I've started running, yet again.  What is this like the 100th time or something?

I don't know if what I do would really be considered a run or not... but I'm moving my bod. 

That is all.

Happy Thursday!

I haven't talked much about the gym since I first mentioned it in January.  I still enjoy going there and getting a sweat session in.  I went last night for the first time in over a week.  About a week and a half ago I got a cyst removed on the top of my shoulder, near my neck.  The incision with the stitches is right where my sports bra strap crosses the top of my shoulder, so I didn't want to chance splitting it open. 

The stitches come out on Friday morning and I can see the incision is healed enough for me to wear the sports bra.  Planet Fitness has various cardio and weight machines.  I like to do a warm up cardio, like running and the Cybex Arc Trainer (arc cross trainer that works my bod).  Then, I like to do a longer set of cardio, like spinning on the stationary bike for at least 30 minutes.  This makes me sweat.  Lastly, I do some weight training with free weights or using the weight training machines.  I enjoy the free weights more by doing various arm exercises and squats.  Squats burn so good. 

What my gym doesn't have that I wish it did was some sort of classes, like kick boxing or spin class.  Planet Fitness does have small classes Monday through Friday that are taught by their fitness instructors for groups of muscles like abs, arms, shoulders, back, chest, and legs.  I'm interested in the arm class, but they don't offer it at a time when I don't work.  Womp womp. 

Overall, working out at the gym is going great, but I know I need to crank it up more.  My eating has been all over the place as well and I'm thinking about going to something a lot more restrictive about what I can and cannot eat.  Attempting a balancing act clearly isn't working and I know I need to do a lot better for me and my health.

Join me?  We can keep each other accountable.  Maybe I should post daily what I'm eating.  Then, if I'm tempted with something I'll know I have to post it and you all can shame me into oblivion.  Possibilities...

This is an incredibly sweet song.  Have a listen.  Overwhelmed by Tim McMorris.  It's on a Sam Adams commercial.  If I had known about this song it definitely would have been a first dance song contender.

Speaking of wedding, let's have a little flash back shall we?  I have hundreds of pictures and I like looking at them from time to time on my computer.  The above song makes me want to look at wedding pictures because it makes me think of Sean.

This was taken right after our first look.  I had noticed Sean forgot to take a tag off of him suit jacket.  So, I removed it but he had to hold my flowers.  Someone was talking to us as well.  This candid picture is just so us.

I think this picture is hilarious.  I'm giving Sean a look.  In the sequence of these photos, it goes from this look to a smiling picture.  It's entertaining they captured this moment.  Sean and I are just walking along, dressed up, completely normal Friday afternoon (not).

And for cute factor, Charlie and Lilly.  Adorable.

Have a nice weekend!

Missed her.

This little kitty missed me while I was gone.

Don't you just want to rub that belly?!

It's the weekend. Lovely. My favorite two days a week. My weekend is cut a bit short because I'm going to Baltimore for work today. I have some training on Monday and Tuesday. Then, I'll be back in Minnesota on Wednesday.

Yesterday, I noticed we had a lot of over ripe bananas in our freezer. Enough for three batches. Sean really likes banana bread in muffin form so most of it was made into muffins.

What are you doing this weekend?
