Ft Lauderdale Half??

Yeah, I'm thinking....not a chance.  I had signed up for the Ft. Lauderdale half marathon several months ago, thinking that would give me the motivation to keep running during the summer but, alas, with school and pool time, I did very little running.  Now the race is a mere 3 weeks away and I am in no condition to run 13.1 miles.

How do I know this? Cuz I went running this evening and was so happy to stop I could hardly stand it! Sweating, shin splints, the whole works. And my mileage? Just over 2 miles. Good friggin times kiddies. So, needless to say, I think I am going to sit this one out and maybe do one later this year or early next year.  There are plenty to chose from and, considering I am practically starting from scratch in my running abilities...yet again, I need lots more practice.  On that note, I am gonna park myself in front of the couch for some nice tv time....and meditate. Yeah, that's what I'll do :)

No more chunky

Let Buff Bride Bootcamp Begin!!!

or

Bridezilla Gets Fit!!!!

Either way, today is Day 1 and my goal in this process is to put down the cupcakes and pick up some weights. I have been looking at a lot of wedding dresses and I can say with certainty that chunky bride is not how I want to look, especially since pictures add, what, 20 pounds....30 pounds.....

So, today I have been eating like a good girl and this evening I am going to go for a 3 mile run.  It is absolutely gorgeous outside and I am actually forward to a nice run since the humidity isn't so crazy this week. I may even add some crunches/sit ups or some hula hooping.

Alright, I'm off to finish making dinner and the rest of this evening's plans.  Have a great evening everyone!!

Couple of Pics

My mom, aunt Laurie and cousin BreeAnna were here for a visit this past weekend and I just dropped them off at the airport a few hours ago.  I was sad to see them leave but I am sure Brian has had enough with all the women in the household!

Here's a couple pics:

My cousin BreeAnna and I finishing a refreshing margarita

















Wilson....not quite sure what he's doing

We had a great time and, as usual, it went too fast.  The next visit will have to be when Brian and I head "up north" sometime next year.

Sick and Tired

Yep, that pretty much sums up my weekend.  Brian was sick most of last week after we came back from our Minnesota trip and I was oh so fortunate to catch the little cold bug on Friday.  Needless to say, there has been a lot of sleeping, tv watching and just feeling lazy all weekend trying to get this bug to run its course.  At least I got all my pesky homework done!

What sucked is that the weather was freaking gorgeous this weekend and I would have loved to have been outside but what can a girl do? Oh yeah, watch Disney's Princess and a Frog three times.  ( I like it)!

Now I think I'll park myself back on the couch and finish watching the Bears game with Brian. Good times.
