Three Things Thursday

1)
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
                                    Pull-ups!
                                    Abs later
   
      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

I agree with #2, I've found that starting this blog has held me more accountable with my workouts.

Cynthia said...

Cute pics! I need to post the ones I took for the cupcake marathon too :) As always you look fab :)

JohnP said...

Wow, you are the hottest lifeguard there!!

If I 'drown' will you give me mouth to mouth? Oh wait, no no, hypothermia means you gotta jump into a sleeping bag with me, nekkid, to warm me up right?

The urge to not continue my swim training has never been so great! Someone drown me plz!! :)

These blogs can take up a lot of time. I know where you're coming from. My goal is to only post every 1 or 2 weeks (my posts take time to write usually) so I can maintain a decent balance.

Adam said...

wait wait wait, there was a race that involved any sort of cake and I missed it??? Loved the pics :)

No worries about the blog slump, these things are pretty cyclical - you'll be back at it soon!

Hot is Hot and that's all that matters! ;)
