Workout Recaps + Random Things I’m Loving Lately (Volume 7)

Hey friends!  Here’s to the start of another week!  It’s a fun one for our family, as we leave for Florida on Friday.  We’re spending six days on Sanibel Island, just off the gulf coast near Fort Myers.  My girls haven’t flown before, or set foot in an ocean, so I can’t wait to see how they react and spend some quality time together as a family!

Here’s how my workouts looked this past week:

wpid-20150116_095004.jpgM – 60 minute strength training class

T – 4 mile run

W – 3 mile run + 30 minute boot camp class + “the sally challenge” (I lost a bet to one of the trainers at my gym, and this was what I had to do!  If you’ve never tried it, well, I dare you!)

Th – 60 minute kickboxing class

F – 8 mile run OUTSIDE with friends (<-Hence the big smile)

S – 60 minute strength training class + 60 minutes kickboxing

Su – OFF

And now a few things I’ve been enjoying this past week:

  • Watching the documentary Fed Up.  I’ve been wanting to watch it forever, and I needed a little more incentive to keep going with my reset challenge.  This definitely provided it.  I’m hoping to share more thoughts later this week in a full review.
  • My husband’s homemade hummus.  He’s been working on a homemade version of my favorite roasted red pepper hummus and after a few attempts I wasn’t crazy about, he hit the latest version out of the park.  So yummy!
  • Sleeping in.  My girls, on their own, decided to stop waking us up on the weekends.  This morning I woke up at 8:30(!!!) came downstairs and my older daughter was reading a stack of books to my younger daughter, and had also made her breakfast (aka put peanut butter on some bread).  Glorious!  Hang in there, moms of younger kiddos.  You will one day get to sleep again.
  • Running outside again.  It’s been above 30 degrees for a few days which means the sidewalks are clear and I can run without fear of slipping and injuring myself.  It’s so much better for my soul to get that fresh air.  I can’t wait to get some beach runs in while in Florida.  Few things in this life make me happier than running on the beach!
