Been MIA I know! Just been busy with errands and seeing my folks and getting ready for vacation! I have been eating healthy and having protein shakes everyday as well as my Detox powder. Yummy! Yeah right, but I am making it a habit. I haven’t noticed any major changes with the detox but I am going regularly which I guess is ok? But there are some slight minor changes maybe I just need more time on it. And plus, I’m not taking it twice a day as I’m suppose to, maybe that’s why!

I have been working on my abs everyday. I know it’s not necessary, but it makes me feel better. I have been doing planks, lunges, and crunches everyday. Dan and I haven’t gone to the gym since we joined well because he’s been in Miami and just got back on Monday and now we leave next week. We want to start a week where we go 5 days straight with weekends to toss in a 3-8 mile hike and 3 hour kayak ride.

Not completely sure if we will be doing the race on the 16th which is only a 5k but who knows, I think we will do it. We will see. Why not right? We do have quite a few obstacle races coming up, Warrior Dash, Spartan Race, Mud Run for MS, and the Tough Mudder. So the 5k should be a piece of cake since our last race, the Spartan Race that we did in the beginning of the month.

June 1 come back! For now, bras, vacation, diet!

So, I am very excited for June to come because that’s when I will start my full on training from Higdon.
I am aiming for a 5k in July at the Airport which should be awesomeness! I am hoping that Dan will run with me because he has been working out lately and running on my treadmill!!! And trying to eat healthy, go him!
After finally getting my chest completely colored in and done, Christian said if I wanted to go with him to Crossfit he will take me which is awesomeness too!
I am going to see if Dan wants to buy bikes for this summer so after work we can both go riding in the park near our home together. I want to aim for being a healthy active athletic couple, how kick ass would that be?
We have been buying so much stuff for our Costa Rica vacation in July. We overly excited.
Also, if anyone is interested, Victoria Secret has wonderful sales! I just got 4 pairs of pants ( 1 cargo, 2 cropped, and trousers) for 60 bucks!!! Also, the miraculous bra that is supposedly give you 2 cup sizes bigger… Well, it is TOTALLY worth 50 bucks!!!! Well, I got it on eBay for 40.00 but OMG my boobies look bigger and I have gotten plenty compliments on them!!!!
I’ve been drinking plenty water lately and trying to commit to a healthy diet. I was watching the UFC Rampage segment yesterday, and he is on a diet that doesn’t include dairy. Maybe should try?????

Days leading to my first 5k

Ive been Mia, I know I know.

I’ve been applying prescribed lidacaine patches on my knees because they hurt a lot when I walk. Today,instead of going to Track, I will just do drills and mini workouts at the Benmore aka my second home. My neck and back has been killing me also, could be from menstruation, but who knows. I haven’t ran this week and I don’t plan to since the 5k is on Saturday I don’t want to hurt myself anymore than I already am. I will however, jog for 3 miles tomorrow around Track or the park depending on weather. Friday, I will rest. I am VERY excited yet nervous, especially with my knees hurting. My breathing, I think I’ve got a handle on! But I will have my inhaler with me just incase.

Sunday, Dan and I are heading to New York to go to the Harry Potter exhibit. Dan seems excited! And so am I a little bit. Afterwards, maybe we will have a mini lunch or smoothies.

June, second week, we are heading to Cancun, Mexico. Beautiful beautiful resort! Couples only, all exclusive. Very excited. And in July, he says he has a surprise trip for us so I am excited for that too!!!

Been watching Eay Pray Love constantly this week. Great movie.
