A Day Late

June 2, 2011

Hi Hi! Glad you guys enjoyed my post in Bikram Yoga. I’d encourage you to give it a shot – most studios (if not all) have new student specials that allow you to try it for two weeks unlimited at a really low price. Don’t be scared! Everyone is so focused on themselves that they don’t even look at you.

I did celebrate National Running Day a day late by completing a 5 mile run at the gym. I really wanted to run outside, but there was a potential for rain. I also hate that when I run outside I don’t have access to the weights and machinery at the gym for a strength work out afterward, but that’s a whole different story.

My run today was a 1 mile warm up, 3 miles of intervals, and then a 1 mile cool down. I then did workout B from stage 1 of the New Rules of Weight Lifting for Women (I’m going to post about it soon, I swear!). I still had a bit of time left so I finished up with an easy 15 minutes on the elliptical.


Realized I hadn’t been wearing this vest/sweater much so I created an outfit around it.


Breakfast cookie, just for variety’s sake. And because they’re the most delicious ugly-looking breakfast ever.

I’m planning a post on the lunches and dinners that have helped me survive this insanely busy week at work. There have been some great new finds!

    sUch a cute outfit! 🙂 How do you do intervals? (That sound moronic, I meant it how do you specifically do them haha). I feel like I need to start doing intervals and I”m always kind of afraid of them lol.

    Cute outfit! Love the sweater/vest, necklace and your colorful sandals. Pretty much everything 😉

    Cute outfit! And this picture makes me think that I’m making breakfast cookies (a la Fitnessista) wrong because mine are definitely a harder consistency!

    Love your printed skirt!

    I also celebrated National Running Day a day late.. my legs were super tight yesterday.. and didn’t want to push it just because it was a run. 5 miles for me too!

    I love that you posted about Bikram earlier today. I went to my first Bikram class since last July this morning! It was intense, but I love the feeling afterward. 🙂

    I have a vest just like that in black, love it but don’t wear a lot! I was super bummed yesterday when I missed my Bikram class, they are so great!

    I really like The New Rules of Lifting For Women, but I have one complaint/reservation about it… it promotes a lot of inclusion of protein supplements into your meals! I ABSOLUTELY use protein supplements in my day, but I like to pride myself on finding less-processed ways to get protein into meals like my breakfast, such as egg whites in oatmeal instead of protein powder! But of course I know that the author had a bias, and the supplements probably help beginners out a lot. Just my two cents!
