Checking in… it’s been a while

May 3, 2010

I know, I know.

I went to Derby (KY) and lots of fun was had.  I ran half of a half.  😀  It was my longest run in months.  I had tummy troubles (shocker, I know) but once I got past them, I was in good shape.  I had an absolute blast with my imaginary friends.  We drank wine, had a fuckerware party, and did some running.  Life is good.

I’m frustrated with myself right now.  I’m eating like shit, and not exercising.  It’s a cycle that is hard to bust out of sometimes.  DH and I have slacked off on Insanity, but we have pledged to pick it back up tomorrow.  I think for now we are going to do the Month 1 workouts most of the time because 40 minutes of that shit is plenty.  Plus, we are both going to work on going harder during the intervals, and one of my goals is to do REAL pushups, not the girly ones.

This weekend was a wedding back home in Kansas, and I didn’t do great eating.  I had soft serve ice cream this morning for breakfast at Golden Corral, if that tells you anything.  We leave for Mexico in 2 weeks, and while I’m nowhere near my goal, I am down 12 lbs from the middle of January.  So that is good.  DH and I are going to work on eating cleaner and within points for the next two weeks, along with our workouts.  I’m also vowing to RUN 4 times this week.  4-5 miles each time.  I teach Spin twice this week as well.  Should be a good productive workout week.  It will feel good to get back in the swing of things.

I’ve started feeling an itch to “train” for something, but I suspect that is driven from my self-frustration right now.  I did some searching on fall races, and I will probably sign up for something at some point.  But for now, I am promising myself I will just be consistent.  I may do some 5K or 10Ks, just for fun, if my schedule allows for it.  There is actually a 9K race this weekend (Sunday) that I may do.  I need to decide, because it often fills up.

Goals this week:

  1. Run 4 times this week.  At least 18 miles.  Including MONDAY.
  2. 4 Insanity Workouts.
  3. 2 Spin classes (this is kind of a gimmee, I don’t have an option on these!)
  4. LOG my points every day.  Seriously.
  5. Blog several times.

A’ight.  That’s it.  For now.  I’m outie.

More Insanity

April 20, 2010

Jeebus.  Are you kidding me, Shawn T?  Squat pushups, power jumps, power pushups, or some crap.  Some of it I can’t even really do, since I can’t really do a pushup.  Holy crapinoly. 

But prior to the Insanity workout, I ran.  Woot.  Outside.  It’s so nice to be able to run outside.  I love it.  Me, my music, a dirt road, and my gps.  4 miles! 

I weigh in tomorrow.  Hopefully I didn’t do too much damage the last two days with the damn mock turtle cookies I made.  They are dangerously good.  I need to give the rest of those fuckers away.  Aside from them, I’ve done really well food wise this week.  I saw a new low number this week, so I hope it sticks 🙂 

In three days I go to Louisville – WOOT!  I cannot wait.  It’s going to be a weekend filled with fun, running, fuckerware, and wine.  Does it get any better than that?  I even bought this to make food for the fuckerware party:

We are going to Deck the Dicks.  It’s going to be fabulous.

8 straight days of workouts, and COUNTING!

March 19, 2010

Welp, we’re still going strong on our Insanity workouts.  Yesterday was a rest day, per the program, but I had to teach Spinning.  So, I did.  Yesterday was the eighth day in a row of working out!  And tonight I have a run and Insanity workout planned.  Tomorrow and Sunday are Spin + Insanity.  Etc, etc, etc.  As some of my friends would say:  RAWR! 

I had three women in Spin last night.  All of them are definitely more in the beginner realm, and it was a super fun class.  I got to encourage them to hang on for the last 30 seconds of a climb, and tell them how hard they worked.  I really enjoyed it.  I hope they did, too. 

Did I tell you guys that I didn’t end up going to Dallas for the RnR half marathon?  I watched plane ticket prices for WEEKS and they were hovering between $350-400 a person.  Since we needed 2 of them, there was no way in hell I was paying that.  So about a week out, I came to realize it wasn’t gonna happen.  So I committed to teach Spin both days that weekend.  Then, BAM, prices went down to $150 a person.  ::insertPISSEDOFFsmileyhere::  ARGH.  Oh well. 

I have another half marathon planned for April 24th in Louisville, KY.  It’s the Derby Half Marathon, and I cannot frickin’ wait.  Not for the run, but for the company!  I’m going to be hanging out with my imaginary running girlfriends!  I mean, they are real, but I call them my imaginary friends because I met them on a running message board, and had not met them until this past fall!  But they are THE BEST.  I’m going to attempt 9 miles on Monday, and then work up before the race.  It’s been probably 3 weeks since my last long run, so we’ll see how it goes.  In addition to the race, we are also having a Fuckerware party.  (In case you don’t know what that is, it’s like a tupperware party, but you buy big black dildos and the like)  GOOD TIMES. 

We’ve been having this outstanding spring weather here in Colorado.  I ran outside after work on Wednesday, and it was fabulous.  However, because Mother Nature is a mercurial bitch, it is now snowing and 26 degrees.  I kinda want to tell ol’ Ma Nature to go f*ck herself.   I’m ready for outside running, capris, skirts and sandals, and grilling. 

My message to Mother Nature:  Bring back Spring, you crazy ho.
