Big Day is Almost Here!!!

April 10, 2010

Guess who’s back…back again!

I have been a blog slackerooni but I’m here this morning to fill you in on the goings-on around here. 

Lots of time up in the gym working on my fitness.  Since I’m there and sometimes have time between appointments or what not, I have been getting some STELLAR weight lifting sessions in…loving it.  The scale is up a few pounds, but I feel good and don’t see the pounds on me.  I think it is partially a little muscle gain and partially this week a little bloat. 

So I’m not going to freak, everytime I get on the scale I was getting angry, but if the clothes are fitting better and I can see improvements, I’m going to have to just grain of salt it with the scale!

That being said, guess who is on the road to my house right now?

My best friend Molly!! Yipppppeeee!!!  She and her 2 kids are swinging through on a little spring break road trip and stopping over here tonight.  And tomorrow is the big day:

TEN MILES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My first venture into double digit land.  This week’s training runs were 3 miles, 2 miles and 10.2 miles.

I accomplished the first two:

I did a 5k run in 31:01

I did my 2 mile run in 19:51

Let’s see how the 10 miler pans out.  I’m actually kind of excited for it…is that WEIRD.  I think I just want to be able to say I ran 10 miles!!!

Job Stuff

So I’m loving my job…can’t believe this IS my job! I have 7 clients currently and most of them are awesome.  It is great to watch them working hard and getting into the workouts.  It is so fun to create the programs and then work them out.

My boot camp is FABULOUS as well!  It is 3 guys and I think they might get in their car and cry a little tear every time I get done with them.

So things are going great on the job front…is it so weird to have a job I love and feel like I’m actually making a difference in someone’s health and life.

Of course, with everything, you get out what you put into it, and I’m putting all I got into it right now!

On that note, I will leave some of my strength training workouts I’ve been doing below if you are interested, if not, please skip it and check back for my big 10 miler recap coming soon!!!! (if we survive!!!)  Any questions or want to know what one of the exercises is below email me yo!
