Requisite pic with bib for the Cupcake Marathon.
I've got a few miles left, I started tracking late and the weather has thrown off this weeks long run, but I'll have it all done by Saturday :)
and since we know I can't stop at just one pic
Scary face, sorry ;P
2) Today's workout: 21 minutes of stairs
Zuzana's Hot Mess Workout
On the topic of Hot Messes I feel like this blog has been a bit of one lately or maybe it is just my mind is a HM. I'm gonna call it the 6 month slump. But it's no big cause I'm hitting most of my goals which was the purpose of starting this blog anyway.
So March my have been a low point for RftB, but it has definitely been a very high point for fitness :D (This also includes my comments have been lackluster lately, sorry! Being mommy + wife + working + working out + life = Gahhh, no time for everything. I really admire all those who can do that all and stay on top of commenting and responding to everyone. That will never be me. But I'll try my best :) Just wait till I start working 48+ hrs a week at the beach with no computer, that should be interesting. I'm thinking LOTS of pics during the summer) Oops that was a long parentheses.
You can expect lots of this during the summer:
The morning after.
Sadly only 3 of us still work there. It's a tough environment for the chicas.
And that's ma sis far left.
3) is just gonna be a list of random stuff:
~ I love that it is [slowly] warming up. . . but I forgot about my spring allergies :( No fun. Can we just skip to summer.
~ I saw 119.5 yesterday.
~ My measure of not losing strength with weight loss is improvement in BW exercises. Less weight to move + maintaining or gaining strength = more ease with push-ups and pull-ups. When I first started using the resistance bands (video here) for assisted pull-ups I could still only do 3 reps in a row, today I did 10 :) Push-up test tomorrow (last weeks test- 27).
~ Right now the 4 mile race I'd found for Sunday is off. I'm trying to work it out (I have knee high shamrock socks I need to wear! Got them after my last race.) Also if I can keep 5k ish pace I could possibly win it and there is a cash prize :) We shall see what happens.
Current Album I'm running, jumping, planking, dancing to-
"Good Morning Revival" Good Charlotte
Esp. "Misery" :D
