A Break

I'm taking a bit of a bloggy break, then I'm getting back into action.
I'm still doing Juneathon, but I'm not posting everyday because I was boring myself with those posts.  Check dailymile to see what I'm doing (if you care).

I'll see you all in a few days! Cheers :)

Juneathon 2012: Day 21

Wow! 3 weeks in already....June is already on its way out the door.  Thats scary.

Don't you just love having the day off work?  I know I certainly do!  I had a wonderful day filled with physical therapy, shopping, and working out.  In between, I managed to take a nap, and finish reading a book.  Wish I could do all that everyday :)

Physical therapy this morning gave me hope that I may be running within the next month or so.  My hip is getting stronger and stronger, which is music to my ears.  After PT, I did a little shopping spree and splurged at Lululemon.  Oh how I die in that store.

The rest of the day was filled with getting organized, reading, gym, grocery store...all the fun stuff.

The Workout
Day 1 of Jillian's 6 Week Six Pack--I'm trying to work on my core, so I'm hoping this will help.  I had to modify some things because of my hip (aka-side planks) but it was pretty good

50 minutes on the StairMaster for a total of 259 flights of stairs

47 minutes on the elliptical for a total of 6.3 miles

Fingers crossed that I can make it to the gym before work tomorrow, otherwise I won't be able to go at all.
I hope everyone has a great Friday!

Juneathon 2012: Day 20

Happy summer solstice everyone! Can you believe its already the longest day of the year?  
Hopefully you got to enjoy the sunshine for at least a little bit today.

Unfortunately, I was stuck indoors at work, and then hit the gym right after work.  But work was good, we got out on time, and most important...I'm off tomorrow.  Three cheers!

The Workout
35 minutes on the StairMaster for a total of 156 flights of stairs
16 minutes on the elliptical for a total of 1.72 miles
90 minutes of hot yoga

I'm off to read my book before hitting the hay.  PT tomorrow, and then I'm hoping for a day of shopping!

Juneathon 2012: Day 19

Holy cow did I work my little butt off tonight.  I was planning on getting up early to go to the gym, but when that alarm rang, I decided it would be better for sleep for an extra 2 hours.  And sleep I did.  But thats okay...I went after work and now I feel awesome!

The Workout
70 minutes on the elliptical for a total of 9.22 miles
30 minutes on the StairMaster for a total of 132 flights of stairs

Those StairMasters really will get you sweating good.  I felt so exhausted afterwards.   I was planning on doing a 15 minute cool down with no resistance on the elliptical, and about 3 minutes in just called it quits.  Now I'm snuggled in my bed reading blogs and emails.

Juneathon 2012: Day 18

What a busy, busy day.  I tried this morning to get up and go to the gym before work, but that was an epic fail.  I got up to my alarm, contemplated going for all of 0.3 seconds, and then reset my alarm and went back to bed.  Oh well.  Work was a busy Monday, as usual, and then I went straight from work to physical therapy, then straight to the gym.  Its 9 pm and I just walked in the door to the house for the first time since I left this morning.

I'm getting really good at eating my meals in the parking lot :)

The Workout
60 minutes of PT left me pretty darn sore, so I had a weak workout tonight
55 minutes on the elliptical for a total of 5.77 miles

The Eats
Lots and lots of fruit
Plus protein pancakes and a Clif bar
And some cheerios for good measure
They ordered from Lou Malnati's (aka the best pizza ever if your not from Chicago) at work today, and I was so proud that I resisted.  Happy dance for me.

Tomorrow I WILL be getting up early to go to the gym, so its off to bed shortly.  Ta ta!

Juneathon 2012: Day 17

How is tomorrow already Monday again?  WHAT THE HECK?! This summer is already flying by.  The weekend flew by, and now I feel like I have a million things to do before I can go to bed tonight.  

The Workout
60 minutes on the elliptical for a total of 6.43 miles
30 minutes on the Stair Master-136 flights of stairs total

This weekend I was in a total snacky mood, and never seemed to get full.  Don't you hate when that happens.  Hopefully I'll be able to get my eating back to normal, and back to being healthy.

I've got a crazy busy day tomorrow so I'm basically off to bed.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Juneathon 2012: Day 16

So I totally skipped yesterday.  We had a crazy day at work, and by the time I got home, my hip was throbbing so bad it hurt to even sit.  And since I'm getting closer everyday to running, I didn't want to make it worse.  So I basically just slept all night.  It was great.

I woke up early this morning refreshed and in no off to the gym I went:

The Workout
45 minutes on the elliptical for a total of 4.75 miles-varying resistance
75 minute spin class
10 minutes on the stair master-it was my first time trying this since my injury, and I was able to do it with only very minimal pain

I'm finally feeling like I'm healing up!  Woo hoo!
I'm off to enjoy this beautiful weekend.  I hope you do too :)
