Today is just one of those blah days, really super super super busy at work and not getting a lot accomplished. Not enough hours in the day. Very frustrating. One a good note....
High school football game tonight and enough calories to have a ballpark hot dog - yeah.
Can't wait until 5:00 quitting time, it can't come fast enough. Gonna be a great weather weekend, doing a 6-miler in the a.m. at the oceanfront then there is a parade. I just love parades and this is not your ordinary parade - it's a Shriner's parade. They are having a convention down at the beach this weekend, with the highlight - A PARADE. Brings back great childhood memories, don't know why I get a litle lump in my throat though, maybe just happy thoughts.
Hope everyone has a great weekend - make it healthy, happy and full of fitness.

We used this lovely tiny torture tool in body sculpting class on Tuesday. We use it all the time, but we used it in a different way on Tuesday. By yesterday afternoon, both my sister and I had some serious quad pain, right leg. Funny how we exercised both legs the same, but both of us have a sore right leg.
Anyhow, we totally ditched kickboxing class last night because we were both so sore, that's really not like either one of us to ditch, but we were REALLY sore. After dinner, we were bth feeling so guilty about cutting class, like a kid skipping school, we decided we were going for a walk, try to stretch it out. That was the longest 2 miles of my life last night, we were both hobbling a bit.
This morning we decided to go for our usual run, and it was the thought that counts in this situation, we were both very slow and couldn't even jog, but I think we are on the upside of the pain now, hopefully by tomorrow a.m. we will be as good as new.
Amazing that a tiny tool can inflict torture, haha, now I know why our teacher calls it the "Band of Pain" , lol.

I had enough calories left over for a nice juicy hamburger, I haven't had a greasy burger in forever so I decided what can it hurt since it's in my calorie range.
BIG MISTAKE, my belly hurt all night - so lesson learned.....
Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. No more burgers for me, my body has become too healthy for grease.

I have always considered back to school time as my new year. It's a time when the pace of life slows down, we settle in waiting on the cooler weather, a time for me to renew my goals, and settle back into the routine. I just love this time of year.
So for the next two months, I'm going to focus on speeding up the running and continue with all my cardio/ST classes and just see what i can accomplish in two months. I have a 5K race on Sept. 25th as a trial run for my 10K.
My goal weight is SLOWLY approaching, yeah, I have set an official date of October 31 to be at my goal weight of losing 100 POUNDS - we will run our 10K race on Oct. 30th. and then gonna start P90X in November. Hopefully will be getting pretty buff by Christmas.
I just love this time of year: Love the cooler weather, the leaves changing colors, Friday night high school football games, motorcycling riding on a crisp morning, NFL Sundays and wearing my favorites hoodies and NFL jerseys. Looking forward to the next few months.
Happy New Year everyone.

Yesterday I was off all day, went shopping, and to do some power lifting at the gym, and rode stationary bike on the mountain climbing setting, sheesh that was tough, chilled out and watched a movie.
Saturday a.m. - couldn't wait to do a weigh in until Monday, so I stepped on it and SHO NUFF, one more pound gone - only ten to go.
Completed a 8 mile run this morning with my sister and then came home for a 25 minute yoga DVD. Now off to get a hair cutt, spend some Kohl's cash and who knows what else I'll get into today, bet it's not gonna be any more running today.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far, I still have three more days off - YEAH for a Holiday.
