NYC and recommitment to WEIGHTS

Hello there!  Today was bless-ed!  It’s been a LONG time since I haven’t woke up early on a Friday or Saturday for a LONG run!!  I slept in, read a little, made bacon and eggs for the kids, and hit the gym for ZUMBA!!  I can still feel a run down feeling in my legs!  Another thing that makes me happy is cleaning my house!!!  It is all perfect right now and that feeling is right up there with my exercise high!  I love my house!  Everything is turning green outside and I have lots of windows.  Beautiful!

Anyway!!  I got an email from a friend of mine that I don’t see too often.  She invited me to join a fitness challenge for 8 weeks.  The timing couldn’t have been better.  I’m so excited!  It starts May 3rd through June 27th.  I’ll fill you in on the details ASAP.  I do much better with these challenges when someone else is in charge.  I’m looking forward to Monday and a re-start on my weights.  I’m going to start Phase 2 of Jamie Eason’s Live Fit program.  Here are my workouts this week, HOPEFULLY!!

I’ll share my diet tips later!  Nothing new, just cuttin’ out the crap!  O.K.  I’ll add a few photos here from the rest of my trip!  Such a great time with my lil’ sis!  We took her to Lululemon and helped her pick out her first lululelmon outfit.

She already sent me a pic. of her in her new favorite outfit and has received tons of compliments.  I really need Lululemon to pay me (:  We spent some time in Connecticut.  We shopped, went to the beach, and ate a lot of yummy food.  We spent the day in NYC too!!  I was singing “Start spreading the news…I’m leaving today…” as we drove in.  We parked at a super cheap lot near Central Park (I LOVE Central Park)  It was a little windy and chilly, but not too bad.  We walked to my sister’s favorite restaurant, Serendipity and visited the ultimate candy store!  The only candy I allow myself is dark chocolate and I tried a sea salt carmel dark chocolate!  Oh my!  Sea salt anything is my favorite lately.

I LOVE Times Square too.  Crazy busy place!  I saw Hard Rock, so he headed there for dinner.  I’m a Hard Rock fan!  Not that I’ve been to a million, but I love the music and the fun environment.  Here we are!

Hee hee!  I think that's me!
