ripped like ripa

Training Run Recap:
Saturday - 8 miles, 10:10 pace
Monday - 5 miles, 10:00 pace

Ha, I'm totally killing the 10 minute pace that the plan is telling me to stick to! Actually it's supposed to be 10:30 pace, but whatevs. It just seems like I should be running faster.

My Physique57 goods arrived today!

Super excited to try out those workouts.

My goal is to look like Kelly Ripa in 30 days....

Totally kidding...I don't look good as a blonde.
(Haha, as if that's the only reason I wouldn't look like her)

Don't worry...I understand the fundamentals of "realistic goal setting".

Try any new workouts lately?

In case you missed it, this past weekend was Matty's 29th birthday.

guess who likes to fresh water fish!?

Those gift bags are "HIS" gift bags. Literally, when I bought them (a pack of 12, have you) he said "these are mine", "my gifts go in them". Ha, I remember using 1 as a gift bag for someone else & when he saw it, he instantly corrected me on my error.

I LOVE giving gifts. I think giving gifts is my love language.

Gary Chapman has a book called the 5 Love Languages - where you can learn which language most makes you feel loved & the one that you most often use to show love to someone.
There's a quiz that you can take to discover which love language makes you feel loved, here.
So like I said, I show love by giving gifts, but I feel loved through words of affirmation.

Pretty much I need you to tell me the extent of my awesomeness in order for me to understand that you do love me.
Just kidding.

Do you ever take online personality assessments?

thursday randomness...

Today is my Friday! Can I get a hal-le-lu-yer!?!?

In other news: I'm a ding dong.

The SheRunsLA 10K was scheduled to start yesterday at 4pm. So I ran at 5pm & then synced my ipod to upload my run to the challenge on Nike+

womp, womp.

The 4pm start time was PACIFIC TIME. I'm East Coast.

So, I've got another 10K scheduled for today. I'm taking it as a sign that I really need to increase my mileage!


Do you have a gym membership?

I used to have a gym membership, but cancelled it right after Matt & I got married.

I'm really missing it now.

The days that I should cross train, make me miss group fitness. That's the only reason I want a gym membership.


Yesterday was Admin Professionals Day

I think my job title is still up for debate. Some days I'm an "office manager", other days I'm an "administrative assistant".
Regardless, I got a nice card & gift card from boss man, aka "dad".

Did you receive anything?


PopSugar is having this giveaway...where the only requirement is to let them know your all time, top 10, favorite stars.

More importantly, for those of you that may have experienced the deadly weather yesterday in Alabama, I hope you made it through safe. Friends of ours in Tuscaloosa spent the day in their bathtub, due to the tornadoes. I couldn't imagine.
My prayers are with you all!

thunder + hail = typical summer evening

Typical summer time weather in Florida. The forecast says 20% chance of rain, but once 4pm hits, that percentage goes to 100%.

And then you see tweets like these:
Storm Team 8 WFLA-TV Dime sized hail reported around Hillsborough in Tampa. Hail also possible south of Temple Terrace east of 275. #weather #flwx

Luckily I got my run in...on the TM since it was already really grey on my way home from work. I opted for only 2.4 miles today (stopped when I heard the rumbling outside). I have a 10K Wednesday, and I'd really like to finish in well under 1 hour. I finished up my workout with a core circuit from the Women's Running magazine. I was pleasantly surprised with the level of difficulty! The moves by themselves were not hard, but combined in the circuit, it was really good!

I was supposed to go root on Matty at his softball game...but due to the dime sized hail and inclement weather...GAME WAS CANCELLED. Shucks.

What are you doing tonight?
I'm not gonna lie....I'm really looking forward to Dancing With the Stars.
