Happy days

Thank God we have made it! I have a relaxing weekend planned - laying out, and laying out, and a run (maybe some vacuuming). I have read from West Sac Honey's blog, as well as a friend of a friend, that Maui Babe is the outdoor tanning lotion to use.

Mr. Nick is going to be thrilled knowing I won't be dropping the moolah at the tanning beds anymore due to our gorgeous sunshine - hey, it's a perk for living in California. Another perk? Selling your kidney and an arm to be able to afford your mortgage. I'll stick to our cozy apartment, thanks :)

On Wednesday I went to XBike, aka hell in a sauna, and I think my 'aka' explains it all. I will say this: I don't think I've EVER sweat as much in an Xbike class as I did in that one. I don't know if the A/C wasn't on or what, but it had to have been at least 85 degrees in there + 30 sweating bodies + the instructor making sure we ALL stayed out of the saddle. I PROMISE to wear my HR monitor next Wednesday to get an updated reading of how many calories I'm burning in that class, because I'm sure it's extreme.

Yesterday, I took a day off from the gym and did the Shred, followed by about 80 lunges (40 on each leg) and 100 bicycle crunches. When it comes to running, absence really makes the heart grow fonder. I have fallen head over Nike's in love with running. It is my natural detox and the cheapest form of therapy. The treadmill will determine how I'm feeling by the rhythm of my run, and know exactly what kind of run to prescribe me. Sometimes their long and fast (that's what she said haha), or short and slow. With that being said, I'm really looking forward to a nice sweaty run on Tread. I'm rating this week with an A+ with how my workouts have been. My eating I'm rating a B. I've stuck to my menu of what I've planned, but I may or may not have snucked into some cottage cheese that wasn't midnight......

Off to work hard for the money ladies - have an AMAZING Friday :)
