Better late than never
I hope you all had a great Easter weekend!
It was beautiful outside for the most part and G-Man and I took full advantage of it. Friday morning we had an E-Session in a different city. There was a road race going on right around the corner, so I was a little jealous that I wasn’t running too, however, I had fun cheering for the runners before the shoot. We got quite a bit of exercise during the session as we walked through a Botanical Garden for over two hours.
Saturday morning, I woke up early and had an AWESOME 15km run. I had a total runners high afterwards and felt so good to start my morning off by hitting the pavement. I saw quite a few other runners and walkers out enjoying the beautiful morning which I always find so motivating!
G-Man and I hit up the market afterwards and it was SO busy! I really wanted some fresh asparagus.. bit it turned out not being that tasty though.
I feel like I was an eating machine this weekend and definitely lived up to my nickname. Of course when we went to Costco, there were hundreds of samples…obviously that’s the best part! It was a madhouse and I forgot my camera but let me tell you there was lots of treats. Ice cream and Krispy Kreme donuts may or may not have been consumed as well.. too bad there is no picture, so you will never know :) Ok, I totally did eat them and I’m kicking myself now. Krispy Kreme donuts are seriously the worst thing ever (actually they are really freaking good but I’m talking health wise) and are SO fattening.
We went for a drive along the Niagara Parkway and really enjoyed some quality time together After a relaxing weekend, it was time to get my sweat on and did it ever feel good! I had planned on going for a run yesterday but wimped out because of the wind. I put together two workouts and here is what they looked like:
Easter Buns Burner
Two rounds – full out! Gymboss set to 6 rounds of 35 seconds with a 10 second rest between each move.
~ warm up – jumping jacks
~ crab toe touches
~ lunge with leg kick (R)
~ lunge with leg kick (L)
~ dead man burpees
~ walk out push-up
~ squat with press up (10lb dumbbells)
~ cool down: jumping jacks
* to start, I did jumping jacks until I could feel my heart rate increase and then cool down for about a minute
It doesn’t look like a lot but I gave it my all and it was a GREAT workout.
Push it – TRX Style
~ 20 squats
~ 20 one legged squats (R)
~ 20 one legged squats (L)
~ 20 back rows

~ 20 chest press
suspended plank – hold it as long as you can!
~ 20 suspended crunches
~ 20 oblique with knee tuck (R)
~ 20 oblique with knee tuck (L)
This morning I ran 8km to shake out from yesterday.. my body was sore.. but a good sore! O.M.G. my face is getting so wrinkly… as much as I don’t like it, I think it may be time to break out a hat to keep the sun out of my eyes while running so I don’t squint so much and hopefully wrinkles too. Please go along with it and tell me it will work.
So six hours later and this post is still open and not uploaded..better late than never eh. Just pretend you are reading this earlier in the day, k? Thanks! Looking forward to catching up in blog land and read about your adventures from the weekend.
