This morning was most definitely a morning where I could've easily played hookie from work and slept the day away. The house was cooled comfortably, my furbaby was snuggled up so close, it was overcast and rainy. But, I peeled myself up and made my way in. I was supposed to be at the beach this week. Our oldest niece Rachel is on Spring Break and she had asked if we could go. We had every intention to go but due to my husband's blackout season at work (no vacations or PTO March 1 - June 4) we can't go. In fact, we won't be able to go until June 4th, which we take yearly for his birthday trip. Next month we celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and it's kind of a bummer we can't take a trip. But we've decided to proceed with our 4th fertility treatment next month. I hope being down 60 lbs will have reversed that stubborn 'ol PCOS and we will conceive. God has a plan and I trust fully in him. [If your listening this morning big guy, I'd love to have a December baby, Amen!]
Last night I had another huge NSV at the gym. Last week on the elliptical, I did 3.2 miles in 40:20. Last night I cut over 10 minutes off and did 3.1 [which is a 5k] in 29:29. I tore that bad boy up! I felt fabulous! Tonight, I'm feeling up for a little back to back action with BodyPump and Zumba; it's been since Christmas that I hit both up in one night. I'm gonna try to recruit the niece to come with me. My only gym buddy is training for a half-marathon and isn't doing classes right now. It really makes a difference to me having someone to workout with, especially the classes.
Speaking of the gym, if you have a smart phone such as a Blackberry, iPhone or Droid - have you checked out the Pandora app? It is the GREATEST! Download the app, create an account (online is easier) and in the search box type "Black Eyed Peas". From there, it builds your radio station with all upbeat songs, awesome for working out! You can of course like or dislike each so it can better build your station. I love it and it's different everyday, which to me is awesome because I get bored with the same songs on my iPod.
