Workouts as of Late

So last week I said I’ve boarded the workout train full steam ahead. These past three weeks have been really pivotal for me being healthy and working out again. After Napa I was looking forward to getting into a solid routine that would push me through fall. I have been doing a lot of spinning, a little bit of running, and a lot of the Tone It Up girls routines, which I love. I also have started following their nutrition plan and am almost down 10 pounds in three weeks. Say WHAT? Crazy how paying attention to what you eat makes such a huge difference.


Anyways, I have been waking up early lately and starting my day off with either a walk, workout or spin class, and even though getting up an hour earlier is a bummer sleep wise, it always makes my day go so much better. It’s nice to have my workout done and that I can come home and relax. It also helps when B is at work that I have the evening to work out in case I slept in. I’m pretty proud to say I’ve only slept in four days out of the past two weeks. Mind over the battle of the sheets!
My morning have been filled with this and I like it a lot! I think George does too :)

So I’m pretty proud of myself for working out and sticking to the plan, which obviously is working! It’s motivating to see results.


Speaking of George, he has officially been with us for a YEAR now! Can’t believe how time flies. A photo of the little crazy a year ago….

Cannot imagine our lives without this little monkey! He’s such a good dog, and finally started to ‘shake’ the other day. I almost cried with joy. He is very attached to us and we are lucky that he came into our lives.


Pretty excited because this weekend is my birthday, and I’ll be running the Long Beach Half Marathon too. Under trained per usual, but should be fun. With being in more of a routine, I’m actually starting to run a little bit more which is nice and gives me hope that I will maybe run a race that I’ve actually trained for sometime in the near future. So hopefully I finish under 2 hours and don’t have to visit too many portapotties. ;)

    10lbs in 3 weeks?!?! You go girl!!!! I have to admit their plan doesn’t fully work for me but I have carb issues – in that my body has a hard time metabolizing sugars of any kind (including fruit). But as long as I mainly keep it lean, clean, and green – it’s all good! :)

    Awesome job with your workouts! I love getting up and working out first thing, but hate that it is staying darker later so early morning runs are either scary or don’t happen (haven’t broken the treadmill out yet). I’m going to check out Tone It Up right now!

    Congratulations on your weight loss! I agree, it’s amazing what happens when you pay attention to what you eat and don’t just mindlessly eat. George is such a cutie. Have a great birthday weekend!

    What motivates you to get up & get your workout in SO early? I have such a struggle with that. George is SO cute! How lucky he is to be in your family.

    P.S. I hope you’ve had a great birthday!
