This week so far...

I totally took advantage of being able to sleep in on Sunday...that's usually when I get up to bike around 6 am. Instead, I slept until almost 8 am and it was heavenly!

  • Insanity - I don't remember which one...they all kick my butt - 59 minutes

  • Insanity - Another butt-kicking video - 59 minutes
  • Run - 3 miles on the indoor track at work - splits 10:05, 9:57, 9:25 - can't believe that last one...maybe the track is a little short?

  • Insanity - Maximum Interval Cardio (translates to "sweaty mess before the warm-up is over")
  • Run - 3 miles (again) on the indoor track at work - splits (10:00, 9:45, 9:31) - I really need to establish my training schedule for my upcoming 1/2 marathon...I should have done 4 or 5 miles, but it wasn't on the "schedule".....

  • Insanity - Maximum Recovery - recovery, really? I was sweating and feeling the that REALLY recovery? Lots of push-ups in this one. In fact, I had to be a wuss and start doing the girlie push-ups 1/2 way through the s-l-o-w, 4-count up, 4-count down push-ups. Those are tough!
  • Run - This is normally a run day for me, but I have back-to-back meetings for most of the day (including lunch). That was why I ran yesterday instead...gotta plan ahead!

Hope everyone is having a great week!

1st Day of School!

So Monday was the kiddo's 1st day of Kindergarten! I had the day off from work, so I woke up at the crack of dawn to workout (Insanity) before the kids were awake. The Hubby and I took the little Munchkin to school and then walked the Kiddo to her class. She had a great 1st day!!! And the Hubs and I got to hang out, have lunch, etc. It ended up being a good day for everyone.

My kiddo starts Kindergarten tomorrow...where has the time gone??? Seems like just yesterday she was a tiny baby in a bassinet next to my bed! I'm excited and sad about it all at the same time. But, definitely more excited than anything, because I know she's going to have an awesome time!

Hello? Is this thing on?

Just wanted to post a quick update...if there is anyone out there still checking here, I thought I would let you know that I am alive and well!

A lot has happened since my last post....

1) I enjoyed a fun time with my kids while unemployed. We continued "school" at home, took field trips to the library, the arboreteum, the zoo, the children's museum, and finally...a weekend in San Antonio with a trip to Sea World. Good times!

2) I continued my training and did a tri...I even beat my goal time by over a minute!

3) I once again became gainfully employed! A great job, a great company...I don't like to talk about work here, but you know the saying, "everything happens for a reason"? Well, it's certainly true! And, the company even has a gym, so I can get some of my weekdays runs done on a treadmill or indoor track during lunch!

4) And I did another tri...faster than last year on the run and transitions, but my swim and bike were both a teeny bit slower than last year. But overall, I had a blast!

5) I completed the 13-week P90X program. Then I started over and after week 3 switched to Insanity. Now, I'm in month 2 of that and enjoying it...even it means I have to get up at 4:15 am to do it before work!

I'm sure there's more, but that's all I can think of for now. I will be back with more and try to post more regularly again. I've miss you guys and need to catch up on what's going on in your lives again too!
Take Care!
