3 (well technically 4) moves from Megan’s bootcamp:
–Jumping lunges for 30 seconds followed directly by a plank for 1 minute. Repeat 3 times.
–Curtsy lunges with a 20 lb weight. 45 seconds on each side. Repeat 3 times.
-Push-ups. I don’t know how this happened but somehow I did them all on my toes. Bootcamp must be working. 3 sets of 10.
3 things that I ate:
-Vanilla Rice Chex right before bootcamp. This stuff is the best.
-Beef Jerky right after bootcamp. I wanted to branch out and try something other than my norm (I usually get the steak strip jerky at Costco) but as soon as I power through this bag I will be going back to my usual.
– We don’t have a Chipotle in our area but Salt Lake City sure does. We went up north to watch a friend’s game but it was canceled due to rain so we all went to chipotle instead.
***Chipotle tortilla chips trump all other tortilla chips.
3 internet finds yesterday that I loved:
–25 Delicious Ways To Eat Eggs For Dinner. I drooled over every single picture.
–Your Arms Will Be on Fire From This Plank Workout. I tried these 5 variations out and they are KILLER!
–14 Great Steve Prefontaine Quotes. “A lot of people run a race to see who is the fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, push himself even more.”
3 things we did yesterday:
-A fashion show for my mom (she loves when I do this) with the new running tank that I got in the mail.
-We attempted to make it look like we were at the beach.
-Ate some almond butter while talking to you fine people way too late at night.
3 songs that will be playing in my spin class today:
–I’m So Sorry by Imagine Dragons
–Want to Want Me by Jason Derulo
–Time of Our Lives by Pitbull & Ne-Yo
PS whenever the song Uptown Funk comes on the radio Brooke says, “Sing it Mama!!!!” And so I do.
3 little video clips put together from yesterday:
Brooke does her cat impersonation, talking about the rain and a little dancing after bootcamp (we had a lot of endorphins).
3 reasons to run today:
-It will improve your mood, decrease your stress levels a bit and give you a self-esteem boost—> ummm yes please.
-It’s another way to prove to yourself that you can in fact do hard things.
-Because your heart, lungs, muscles, bones, brain and the people in your life (because running just makes us much more patient and happier people to be around) will all thank you that you did run today.
3 things that make me happy:
-Baby feet. I could stare at my nephew’s little toes all day long.
-This Juicy Fruit gum that tastes like you are chewing candy all day long.
-That Mindy Kaling announced she has a new book coming out. I LOVED her previous book, ‘Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and other concerns)’
3 things I am looking forward to!
-Seattle RnR 1/2 Marathon next month. I did this race last year and loved it!
-The swimming pool at our complex is opening up in a few more weeks. Swimming is pretty much Brooke’s favorite thing to do on the planet.
-A weekend trail run because the trails are my happy place.
Tell me three things!!!!!
