60 minutes of elliptical and stair climber.
WEIGHTS (for the third time this week). I figured it out. I understand why I finally have motivation to do weights:
1. I don’t have a job anymore so it is a lot easier to fit in longer workouts and I am not rushing around the gym like a mad woman trying to figure out how I am going to fit in a workout and shower before work.
2. I want to be strong for labor so that it will be easier. It will help me to get back in shape after the baby too!
So, there you have it. After 26 years of life I finally have motivation to lift weights.
About twice a day I am forced to face my fear of snakes. They love to sit on the hot stepping stones (aka our walking path) during the day, it is the only path to get to our cars so there is no avoiding them. I have started to call the snake ‘our pet, Slither’ which for some reason makes me not afraid of him anymore. Now that I am seeing him as our friend/pet/welcomed guest he doesn’t scare me and I think he is kind of cute now.
Lunch was eaten with the Billster at home. He has a short day on Friday so we start our weekend partying pretty early.
I had a normal person sized salad (I can’t fit nearly as much into my stomach as I used to), watermelon and a toasted Einstein’s cinnamon sugar bagel with honey almond cream cheese.
(I almost threw the toaster away when it burned part of my bagel, it was in there for like 40 seconds?!?!)
Tomorrow is race day and I wanted to wish everyone good luck at the Utah Valley Marathon, 1/2 Marathon and 10k! If you have a second…wish Billy good luck in the comments mkay….PR city here we come:)
(Photo after running Utah Valley Marathon in 3:08, I was so tired that I couldn’t even keep my eyes open. PS wearing a white top and drinking gatorade while running is not a good idea)
