Le Sigh

So I stalk skinny runner's blog. This girl cracks me up, and she motivates the HECK outta me to run even when I don't wanna. So ever since I saw her carrying this purse, I have been secretly dreaming about it ever since. I have NEVER been one to drop major $$ on a purse, but when I have a purse I love, I use it for a long time. My birthday is in September, and yes I know that's 4 months away, but after thinking about it for a couple months (I know, I'm crazy for thinking about my bday 9 months before), I have found that THIS Kate Spade purse is what I want. Not only that, but I have found a couple promotional codes, that takes $73 off this purse AND their offering free ground shipping. So the purse comes to $292 with all the fees, originally $325. Since Skinny Runner can do no wrong in my eyes, I am copying her to a 'T' with the color I want - the red :)

This is such a classic purse and it's one that I'd keep and love forever :) (think about it mama :) )

Onto workouts, you know..the important things in life. So yesterday Nick opted to stay home from the gym, but I forged ahead. I took full advantage of my gym time and decided to try something new - the stair stepper. Different from the stair master, the stair stepper is actually climbing stairs. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF CHANGING YOUR ROUTINE. Holy moly, my legs were on fiya! I did only 15 minutes (75 floors!!!), and then it was onto legs. My little black shorts are burned in my mind, and I was pushing hard my friends. I had my own little last chance workout in the gym, sans Jillian and Bob. Today Nick and I are back to the gym and it'll be back on that stair stepper torture device, and abs, back and triceps. I'm just a tad short of this (*insert sarcasm here*)

so you can see my reasoning in wanting to continue to work them till they pop.

I do that machine every morning for an hour. Talk about making you sweat buckets. OOOO it's terrible. Sounds like you're doing really well! I love the fact that you still went to the gym even though your husband decided against it. Ha...I did that this morning :)
