Happy Tuesday!

It was a good but busy weekend -with the wedding it seems like there is SOOO much stuff to do and never enough time! We did get 90% of the addresses for invitations and sent our Save the Dates yesterday so I am very happy about that! We also went to a few stores and registered for a ton of stuff we don't need (lol our house is full but we have to put something on the registry I guess!). lots of kitchen stuff - hopefully for cooking healthy stuff!

I had a great 10 mile run on Saturday - I was excited by that! I had only 5 hour sleep the night before, not a great dinner, and was on call for work so didn't expect that but it was awesome! didn't even need walk breaks - I stopped 3 short times for gatorade at the coolers and then kept going. I actually ran 7.5 and decided I could get in more before I got a work call so I went back out at mile and then I was at 9.5 so I went back out for the last .5 was great! I felt legs felt good...and I am feeling much better about my 3 half marathons (one in nov, one in dec, and one in jan!) now that I have 10 miles down! Its been since march since I've run 10 miles so the confidence booster by doing it was great!

I got my heart rater monitor replaced as well! REI upgraded me to a new model for free! It was awesome! I am so happy with the new one and it's working great so far! I did bootcamp yesterday morning and then after work I went to my first spin class in months! It was the great - the instructor was AWESOME super tough super intense...I loved it! I am glad the lights were off or everyone would have seen my goofy smile when we hit sprints...yeah I LOVE spin that much! I can't believe it's been so long since I did it! the girl teaching was a sub so hoping the regular instructor is just as awesome as well! I also tried body pump = a weight lighting barbell was good - I really want more cardio but it was fun and since I did spin first I burned another 800 calories in body pump so I can't complain too much! hoping this is the jump start my body needs to start shedding pounds! I was thinking it was because I wasn't getting my heart rate up to a high enough rate for long enough...I had it over 170 quite a few times last night! I might do kickboxing on Thursday evening as well instead of my running and then run Friday mornings! kickboxing should ramp it up pretty high too!

Nice thing is that I'm a little stiff and muscles are fatigued -- but I'm NOT sore...yet! lol I know if I keep working out then it prevents the soreness! Eating is a little better - not great - I did cheat saturday night - mostly as a reward for an awesome 10mile run. I need to break that habit bc I've had plenty of reward meals that were unearned lately!

Was not great today but if I stay in line for dinner I might just come out ok!

Alrightly I'm off to run and strength train and run some more!!!

    Weights weights weights! They’ll change your body composition and help you burn more calories at a time. But the HITT cardio will getcha going too. Sounds awesome! I’m looking forward to mixing it up more here when the marathon is over. What’s the new HRM? Still Polar?
