Workout Update

After catching up on everyone's blogs today I was super stoked to run...on the treadmill. No way I was running outside in what 4 degrees. My fingers turned bright redish purple in practically 3 minutes this morning - with gloves on!!!Then one thing led to another. I HAD to finish the save the date cards and get them in the mail tonight, then Jacob HAD to finish his Tiger Woods online tournament on Playstation 3 (seriously what a dork! But I'm marrying that dork ;) ) Then we didn't get to the gym until around 6pm. So every single treadmill was spoken for. I'll be happy when it's late February and everyone has given up on their New Years resolutions. Instead of the mill I hit up the more difficult of the elliptical machines for 35 minutes. Yes there are different degrees of elliptical difficulty at our gym. Odd but true. It doesn't have much but it has that going for the place. Not what I was hoping for but a workout nonetheless. And I felt a lot better after I was through. Maybe I can get the run in tomorrow and this weekend. There should be a warm up to about mid 20's! Break out the shorts....

Next, I need to start working on that eating healthy thing. That I'm not so good at maintaining.

Meeting with the caterer tomorrow. I am super excited. No free tasting yet just hashing out the details and praying we can afford her. But seriously I cannot wait until the cake tasting. Yum! Yes, this is one of the reasons I workout...for a moist vanilla cake with buttercream frosting with strawberries in the center....This is also why I am failing at my eating healthy thing ;)

Good for you. Wish I had that difficult elliptical device. I never feel like I'm doing enough but it certainly is easier on my body than running every day. Good luck with the eating healthy!

Hi Jamie

I am so over the New Year's resolution people at the gym. I am trying to be nice about it and would support them if they were dedicated like we are, but I know they will be gone soon.

We all work out or run for different reasons.. cake for you and Mexican food for me:-)

Best of luck.

My husband is also the same way with the PS3 (but ours is an XBox) and he's 30 and we have 2 kids. It doesn't change. They might not be AS devoted to the thing after all those life changes, but it's still around LMAO! I'm sure when he's 60 he'll have PS20 or whatever and still be playing *sigh*

Bill, mexican food is also another reason I run. Even having it at the wedding I love it so much :)

Marcy, the fiance is 32 but no kids and still plays the PS3 non-stop. My father is almost 60 and can't stop with Wii so I don't think it ever ends :)

Sounds like your wedding plans are coming together nicely.
Nice job on the workouts.
I think we all struggle to eat healthy all the time.

Ugh, I hate it when all of the treadmills are full at the gym! I want to yell at everyone and be all "My needs are more important than yours! I'm in training here!" ;)

Not that this is going to help at all with the eating healthy bit, lol, but the chocolate soup my boy made was actually just hot chocolate so thick I had to eat it with a spoon - whole milk, bittersweet chocolate, kahlua, malted milk + various spices...well, you see why I've had to resume the long runs ;)

Good for people to know.
