sweat, baby, sweat!

24 Mar

I felt PRETTY pleased with myself yesterday for two reasons.

1. I got TONS of work done on the job front. Lots of writing, designing, html business.. maybe this is because Court was out of the office and we weren’t virtual work buddies through AIM? ๐Ÿ˜‰

2. I had a ROCKIN’ workout. In case you’ve been ignoring my whines (I would too) I WAS sick for about two weeks. I’m almost done my meds and yesterday was my first day back at a REAL workout. (I’ve been yoga-meltdowning and going on measly runs in the meantime.) Last night at the gym I completed 40 minutes of cardio on the elliptical (fairly light, as to not upset my lungs!) followed by a total body weights session.

The BEST part of the workout? I put my ABS to the test. I dug into my gymnastics roots an completed three sets of 20 V-Ups in addition to my routine of planks, crunches, and weighted sit-ups.

flex, baby, FLEX!

I work out to be strong, healthy, and proud.. but I work my abs because I will be living five blocks from the beach starting in May. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Oh..and to have a good core so I can speed through races like this:

check out all those men! eat my dust ๐Ÿ˜‰

confused and puzzled.. but the beach looks nice!

Happy Thursday! One more sleep til the weekend. ๐Ÿ˜€
