I just realized that my girl Sami, from Sami's Shenanigans, was hosting a weekend update blog hop! Nothing quite says Monday like seeing all the weekend updates in my Google Reader.
Let's get this show on the road! First of all, I am giving you a rest from the lake pictures because I didn't make it up there this weekend. No worries, next weekend we'll be back in action on that front!
Saturday, I found my groove and got back on the workout wagon. IT FELT FABULOUS! I have a post in the works for you with my newest playlist additions that really helped me this weekend. I did an hour Zumba class Saturday morning AND THEN went to the gym and did strength training/ weights with my upper body. I was totally riding the endorphin high from Zumba and did not want to stop working out. I was feeling a little sore and tightness in my chest, shoulders, arms, but it actually felt good.
And I signed up for my FIRST 5K, Color Me Rad run in October!! (which I know isn't much to some of you, but it's a goal of mine for 2012). I'm so excited to have this goal to work towards! So excited that I went to the gym again yesterday and ran 1.5 miles. Here's the thing, I enjoy the exercise of running. I love the runner's high. However, I'm a little out of practice. I think that this will be the perfect goal to work towards and give me a reason to stay committed over the next couple of months.
So please give me a virtual pat on the back because I've been a major slacker lately with my eating and workout out habits, and I'm quite proud of myself for a good weekend!
It was a pretty soggy week here last week and that carried over some into the weekend so I tried rockin my best Messy.Dirty.Hair look...I love wearing my hair like this because you just scrunch and go. So easy! My hair is wavy, but not curly so it probably just looks messy. That's the point of Messy Dirty Hair, right??
In other weekend news, I FINALLY saw Magic Mike. Holy hotness, could Channing Tatum be any more sexy??? For those of you who haven't seen it (or for those of you who have and need a little happiness on a Monday morning) here's one of my favorite clips.
