After my last post I have some clarification. First off, I do not have the body to run in a sports bra. I ran in it based solely on the fact I thought no one would be around, therefore my plans were spoiled with a parade of all things. Secondly, the sports bra I was wearing was over six years old, and I said it was purple, well I would also have to add that it’s very, VERY faded and dirty looking, but it’s my absolute favorite. Thirdly, many of you commented how you would just turn around. Well I have this weird thing where once I plan out my run, I cannot venture off the path. If I’m doing a long run down by the beach and I say I’m going to turn around at the pier, I have to make myself run all the way to pier and back. I had mentally mapped out my run in my head that Friday night for that Saturday morning and sure enough, I couldn’t turn around because that would ruin my plan. I know I’m a little OCD when it comes to planning, you’re not the first to realize this. It bodes well when I work with my special events planner friend, and I do see myself possibly getting into the field again. (gasp, I’ve been planning special events for the past three years!) I get harped on for planning out my schedule weeks in advance and I even plan when I’m running, what routes, everything. So therefore, I couldn’t turn around and had to travel the parade route.
So many of you know my love for the show Biggest Loser. Well last nights episode gave me more than enough to blog about for the next four months. First, I completely understand that it’s TV and they can spin people to look how they want to, but seriously, VICKI and BRADY! Are you kidding me. This family is super mean and totally game playing. I was SO HAPPY that Amy .C. thought for herself and knew that Brady was a bigger threat and voted him off.
First off, I love Phil and Amy, they are so cute, and “seem” super nice, considerate, and caring. No one is spiteful on the show besides Vicki and Brady and Ed and Heba. Vicki and Brady are RIDICULOUS to laugh at Phil when the challenge was going on, and he fell off his stair stepper. Man, I was cheering for Stacy to win, but unfortunately Ed, whom the bf and I are not a fan of either came back to win and get back on the show. The schemers made the whole house uncomfortable and I couldn’t believe that Vicki and Heba were taunting the black team when Phil went home. It might be scripted, but I feel like you can’t get Vicki to say such mean spiteful things for no reason.
It’s funny because I think Heba thinks they would all ‘stick together’ but I know they would all stab each other in the back given the chance to win the money. Oh and by the way, can I please work out one session with Jillian!? Gosh! I am going to get her video and give it a try one of these days, it looks super fun and I know she would kick my butt and I would totally love her 30 day shred. Felice over at the Happy Runner said that they work super good and that she can ‘feel them working’. That is the best feeling ever.
So tonight I’m going to take a class at the local 24 hour fitness, Amp’d Abs. I used to take it often back in college when I didn’t have much to do with my life and I would go to the gym more often. I looked for the class at my new gym and they only had it at 10:30 am. I found a gym by my work and it is at 6:15 pm, so I’ll get off work at 5:45, and head over, ready to get my abs back in shape. The class seriously kills you, but it feels so good. I think then I’ll run for 45 minutes and maybe do a little bit of weights.
Today on Marcy’s blog she showed me the light about the Sports Authority Outlet! So many great deals there! A lot of t-shirts, shorts, anything you name it, they’ve got it, and super great prices. Also her blog is hilarious and today’s was no different with her story of taking her kids to Chuck-e-cheese.
Also I found these funny little bowls for many of you that run with a dog, or have one at home. They are called Slurpabowls and are portable bowls that ensure you’ll always have a container for your pets water or food. Can fit on a leash, in a purse, or in a pocket. It holds up to two cups of food or water and it folds flat and can be reused a few times. It’s also recyclable. It’s 8.95 for six.
You can find these bowls here!
And this could be the sickest thing I’ve ever bought!
The Nike ThermaFIT hatphones. You can move, groove, and stay warm in the Nike® + women’s Soft Shell Therma-FIT® Cap. I’m already obsessed because my little ears FREEZE in the mornings. It’s a comfortable skullcap that features fully functional iPod® Nano click wheel controls through the power mesh window in back, so you can keep moving while mixing up your music. I don’t really think I’ll be doing too much “mixing” but skipping a boring song sounds good to me. Get your own here!
Thanks for all the concern about me actually running into the wall. My arm is healing well!
