Today’s Workout

  • BodyPump – 60 minutes
  • 2.1 miles, treadmill

I woke up this morning feeling a lot better than yesterday. I am still slightly congesting but getting better!

I want to try and squeeze in a 2 mile and a 3 mile run before Saturday, and I knew it wasn’t going to happen unless I ran on the treadmill. So after BodyPump this morning, I hopped on the treadmill and ran 2 miles.


It’s so weird to run on the treadmill again. I used to only run on the treadmill, but since switching to running outside, it makes it a lot harder to run on a treadmill. I was super sweaty after only running two miles.

I hope to run three miles outside tomorrow morning before Danny goes to work. We’re supposed to get bad storms later this afternoon, so I’ll see how the weather is in the morning.

Post workout, I had a mini chocolate mint Builder Bar.


After the gym, we went to pick up my niece and of course I have to share a picture of how cute she is.


My aunt sent her that outfit in the mail and it arrived while were there so I had to put in on her :) After having two boys, it’s fun to be able to dress up my niece.


Lunch this afternoon was two egg whites, toast with peanut butter, and apple slices.


I haven’t had peanut butter toast in forever so it was especially good.

I ate while reading two of my new running magazines.


So, is it embarrassing that I already bought our tickets to see Monsters University next Friday?!

I don’t even know if the kids want to see it, but I do :) Jacob was little when the original Monsters Inc. first came out, and it was one of the first movies that he loved watching. He used to watch it over and over and over.

I think we all have one of those movies that we watched a million times when we were younger and never got sick of it. For me, it was Ladybugs with Jonathan Brandis.

For my brother, it was 3 Ninjas.

I can’t even tell you how many times I have seen both of those movies.

I feel like Monster Inc. was part of Jacob’s childhood, so I am excited to see Monsters University.

Have a great afternoon!

  • Is there a movie that you watched over and over as a kid?
  • Is there a movie that you love watching as an adult? There are some movies that I will always watch when they come on tv – A Walk to Remember, Dawn of the Dead, Resident Evil (for some reason I have an obsession with zombie movies)
  • What did you have for lunch today?

    Hi Heather, I love your blog. I have a question. What gym do you go and how much is the rate? I live in Madison, WI and I want to try gym that offers lots of group classes. Thanks :) .

      I actually just go to the gym at my local park district. It’s $50 a month but that includes the fitness center, most fitness classes, and thr kids room. I used to go to Cardinal/ Charter fitness. It was cheaper but they got rid of their kids room and didn’t offer classed.
