Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
First, up the two winners of the Fresh Express coupon giveaway: Julie and Sandra! I already sent you both emails!
I hope everyone had a great weekend! I was supposed to work Friday night, but my appointment got canceled, so Danny and I decided to workout at the gym instead.
We did a workout from The New Rules of Lifting book which included squats, push-ups, seated rows, step-ups on a box, and jackknifes on a stability ball. We finished out our workout with some box jumps – we set them up from smallest to biggest and had fun jumping on them.
I am still working on a soft landing. You can see a video on Instagram of me jumping (I’m RunEatPlay on Instagram).
On Saturday, we went out with my family for a St. Patrick’s Day dinner and then came back to our house.
I think I might have ate something bad because I have been feeling sick since Saturday night. The boys had corned beef at the restaurant but I had a lobster tail. It tasted good but I wonder if that’s what made me sick.
I managed to teach BodyPump on Sunday morning, even though I didn’t feel the best.
After the BodyPump, we took the kids to Barnes and Noble to pick out a book.
Just a typical Sunday afternoon, sitting on the floor at Barnes and Noble, reading fitness books.
After the book store, we went to Sports Authority to get soccer shoes for Jacob and baseball cleats for Jaden.
Of course, I spotted a pair of Nikes on clearance and in my size (a rare thing to find). And we had a coupon.
Do I need new shoes? No. Did I buy new shoes? Yes.
Danny was less than thrilled to be buying more shoes.
I have shoe problem…a gym shoe problem. I could care less about other shoes.
In my defense, one pair is Jacob’s, one pair is too narrow, and one pair has a stupid tongue problem.
I wear different shoes for different activities like running, teaching BodyPump, fitness classes, etc and the Asics that I usually wear to take exercise classes have a major problem with the tongue twisting completely sideways which drives me nuts because it’s so uncomfortable.
I haven’t owned Nikes in awhile, so I figured they’d be perfect to wear for fitness classes. And they were on clearance. Danny.
I am still not feeling 100% today, but I did work for a couple of hours this morning…then I came home and got sick. I only managed to eat a Lara Uber bar today but I am going to try some toast in a bit!
Have a great afternoon!
When was the last time you were sick?
- Do you own a lot of shoes? Favorite shoes? I love my Reebok ZQuick shoes because they are so comfortable!
