Last Night’s Workout

  • 30 minutes Adaptive Motion Trainer (AMT)
  • Ab Workout: 100 ball sit-ups, 50 side bends with 7 lb. weight, 25 standing crunches
  • Yoga Stretch – 30 minutes

Before going to Yoga Stretch last night, I fit in another quick workout…mostly because I had a little (or big) run-in with the kid’s Easter candy yesterday afternoon. Darn. Those. Jelly. Beans.

I made up for it by doing a little extra cardio and eating a healthy dinner.


For dinner, I made zucchini pizza bites. I also had raw veggies with hummus and apple slices with plain Greek yogurt with some PB2 mixed in.

I’m proud of myself for getting back on track right away after eating the candy. Sometimes, I’m like well, I just ate all that candy, might as well continue to keep eating bad. I already ruined everything.

I am really glad that I am starting to get away from that mindset. Eating some candy or ice cream won’t ruin your diet, but if you do it constantly, it might be a problem.

I picked up our race packets for Saturday’s 5k yesterday. Personally, I think the race shirts are a little oogly, but it’s not like I ever wear them anyway.

One of my favorite things in my race bag was a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss. I mean how often do you get a toothbrush for running a race?!

I’m a little nervous about this race because we have to run 2.75 times around the course which is very narrow. If there is super speedy people and slower walkers, won’t the faster runners be lapping the slower runners on an already narrow course? And what’s up with 2.75 times around?

Oh well, I plan just to have fun at the race. Hopefully it won’t rain.

Today’s Workout

  • 1.02 miles treadmill, walked
  • BodyPump – 60 minutes
  • Zumba – 60 minutes


I think I’m going to buy new headphones tonight. I currently use the headphones that came with my iPod, but they always fall out and I am constantly having to fix them. It’s really annoying.

This is a pain when I am trying to run. Sometimes I run with music and sometimes I don’t, so I wasn’t sure if it’d be worth it to buy new phones. Then I figured that I would need them for the 15k anyway, so I might as well buy a pair that stays in my ears. I have also noticed that running with music helps me go a little faster.

I am thinking about buying these YurBuds In-Ear headphones. They received good reviews and are reasonably priced ($29.99). I really don’t want to spend anymore than that on headphones.


Hopefully these will stay in my ears and I won’t have to mess with them the whole time I’m running!

Have a great Friday afternoon!
