active weather!

Today was an extremely active day, and I feel awesome. Speedwork run at the gym, lunch time walk, after work outdoor bootcamp. Something about the gorgeous weather makes me wanna work out, thank goodness! 

The bootcamp was with my old trainer who left my gym to start her own business. There were 5 of us tonight, and we did rotations of strength training with medicine balls, TRX & the huge biggest loser style rope. We did jogging and sprint cardio and ladder work. I was pretty tired by the end. I decided to sign up for the 5 session series which is 1-2 times a month at the bike path in town. I think it will be a good way to get in some strength training (which I need!), and meet new people. 

I haven't been able to make it back to the group cycling ride, since I now have a weekly meeting at 5pm on mondays. So sad, but I may look into the group rides that the local bike shop runs.

What are your favorite group activities?

Tomorrow, I am taking a mental health day from work, and I am so excited since it is supposed to be GORGEOUS! My plan is for an early swim, then mid morning run, and afternoon ride. Probably some cleaning and yardwork thrown in too.

I am proud to say that since starting weight watchers at work I have lost weight (3.4 pounds), but we officially had our first weigh in this week. So next tuesday I will be crossing my fingers for a good first official week number. I am tracking points better than ever, even the mess of Stacy's Pita Chips and Skinny Cows & beer I had last night. This weekend should be less of a disaster since I have no big plans, so it should be fairly easy for me to stay on track.

Not sure if I mentioned it before, but I am working my way through

Running on Empty: An Ultramarathoner's Story of Love, Loss, and a Record-Setting Run Across America

Eventually when I finish (too much stuff to do leads to slow reading), I'll have a review & giveaway to post.

Don't forget tomorrow is the LAST day to enter my ALO giveaway HERE

Love how you took advantage of th day - I just ran outside, but I'm going biking with the local bike shop group tomorrow + brick run with them. For group activities - I actually joined + go on hikes and rides with a couple groups.

Does drinking Martinis as part of Girls' Night out count as my fav group activity? Hmmm, okay probably not - but it is a LOT of fun! When I was in VA I went to a class called Body Pump - TOTALLY.THE.BEST.THING.EVER!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously, google it - check it out on youtube!! Fab! I also did BodyAttack which was like a kick boxing class and a BodyFlow class which was a yoga type class. Man- if I had access to those classes in IN I would be AMAZING! HUGE SIGH - only crappy ol' gyms here in my lil' ol' town!!!!!!!

That TRX sounds so cool but so intense!

Hmmm, group activities. I guess I likes group classes like spinning or yoga.
Great job on getting in all those workouts. I plan on getting out to enjoy the nice weather today too.

nice job with the weight loss! I'm thinking I need to do weight watchers, because doing it alone doesn't seem to be working!
