While I'm waiting...

Thursday, March 28, 2013

Miss Kate is eating her Peanut Butter Cheerios and wants to do Week 3 run with me. So this gives me about a half hour to wait.

Today I asked Siri how many weeks were left in 2013. There are 39 weeks 5 days.
I had promised myself and told my friend that I would take all my DVDs and put them in my calendar for the year. I was going to do this blah blah blah....when I saw just how many weeks were left I almost fainted. Wow! Time goes by so fast. I thought of all the things I COULD'VE had done and this prompted me to getter done.

Granted...I have been moving. On week 3 of my C25 (again, but yeah) and like I said, daughter's going to run that with me, and I've been doing my ab crunches ... sporadically.

So, I've taken Spark advice and it's in my appt book, with a calendar.....with stickers ready to go on it.

My rest of year schedule looks something like this:

Hip Hop Abs (w/C25) 12 weeks (39-12 = 27)

Slim Series (running) 90days or 15weeks (27-15=12) wow!

Jillian 30 day Shred & Jillian Wii 30 days/4w (12-4=8)

Biggest Loser DVDs & Wii 30 days/4w (8-4=4)

and my Wii fits & Ab ball (last 4 weeks of year) This is where I will reward myself with either Chalean Extreme ST & P90/Insanity or Crossfit...I haven't decided until then.

As you noticed the intensity of DVDs kind of go down and this is because I know myself that Fall is the hardest time for me to find time. Football games, cheer, bands, MY school etc but I wanted to make sure I forced myself into SOMETHING so I switched and have the higher intensity workouts now...AND I will continue running with all of it.

As a matter of fact, I have Run or Dye (Color Run) in Reno with my niece, daughters, and sis in law that I can't WAIT for in June. I have a couple of local charity runs I'm signing up for (schools, community etc)

But first, to the mall for new shoes. well, after today's run.

Now, to figure out the menu....I figure I'll do that while I'm running. or maybe not. I dunno

Daughter wants to do Hip Hop Abs with me tonight. This is gonna be fuuuuuun!!

In other news: My oldest seems a lot more relaxed. Shes having a good time on Spring break even though it's in the midwest with all their snow and ice! LOL She loves Chicago so when she sent me a text that she wanted to talk to me and her Dad about a life altering decision I wasn't sure what to expect out of her. But after much probing it sounds like she just wants to sell her piece of pookie car. (I shouldn't say that, it's been a good little trooper....just dies at the drop of a hat)

That's all for now. I need to get my pics up here for you guys....

    Thanks for sharing! I enjoyed reading your blog update. I did the Color Run in Phoenix (it was the first of the year). LOVED IT! I'm looking forward to doing the Neon Run next month. My next charity run on my bucket list is a Mud Runner.

Glad to hear that your oldest is enjoying her time in Chicago. How about your other daughter in S.F.? Hope she had a chance to check out I'm sure there are lots and lots of fun get togethers in Northern California. When I lived up there I fondly remember attending the Gilroy Garlic Festival. Fun times! But then again I'm Italian American -- think my blood is infused with garlic ;)

    Look at me falling behind on your blog.....girl we can all look back and say "wow look at the time that has gone by", but you have a plan now and STICKERS to earn. So get that bottom moving! Terry and I were talking about making next year one of a trip for just "US"....maybe I can talk him into flying out to CA and doing a run out there with you!!! Oh that would be fun!!!

    I am sitting here somewhere between amazement and disbelief! Your plan for the remainder of the year slays me. Now that's what I call dedication!
My own C25K training is on pause - my body wasn't ready for running the track and the impact - or my form - messed with my back/neck and eventually into my shoulder. I can't give up working out, so I am pausing the jogging and still doing the walking.
I hope you have a terrific week!

    Excellent idea to put all of the DVDs in a lineup! Fall and Spring are hard for me--we farm and that's the busiest times of the year, too bad it's also the best for running outside too! Good luck to you! :)

    Having a daughter who would like to exercise with you is sounding great to me. Make sure you have a lovely time because she will always remember it.
