Just Checking In!


Well, hello hello!  How are you all doing?  Just a general check-in post to see what’s on your mind (and to share what’s on mine)… SO, in “what’s new in my world,” I feel in a bit of a work out rut.  I am just not feeling it.  After Broad Street, I was determined to continue training…for what?  Nothing in particular, I just wanted to stay in good shape.  So, I am continuing to do ONE long run a week (th 8-mile Art Museum loop) along with some medium (5-6 mile) and shorter (3-4 mile) ones mized in. I am also trying to mix up my workouts now.  I noticed that although I have lost some body fat in training for Broad Street, my muscles are not as defined as I would like.  So, I hope to integrate some weight training into my workouts to ease boredom and spice it up!  I want to try a TRX class that they have at the Sporting Club.  Has anyone tried this before?  According to the Club website,

TRX is body-weight suspension workout that can be used by any ability level. Started by the U.S. Navy SEALs, TRX workouts can build power, strength, flexibility, balance, and aid in preventing injuries.

I wanna do it.  I think I might try to drag Sabrina with me, as she has tried new things with me before (think Zumba) and I try new things with her (think Bikram Yoga)…

A Beautiful Bridal-Shower-Sunday

Leave a comment

Yesterday I had the honor/pleasure of attending a VERY good family friend’s bridal shower…Jennie!  Jennie is Kelly-girl’s sister…

Kel and I (forever friends :-))

and I have known her for YEARS.  It is so amazing watching people grow up literally in front of your eyes.  So I somehow forgot to snap a picture of the lovely bride-to-be, but photographed some of the other adorabl-ness!

A cute sign-in plate and book

The "wishing well" which was BBQ themed! Cute!

The bride's seating area for gift opening!

The yummy buffet table

The food was delish and homemade by the bridesmaids (go Kel!)!  I had an amazing wrap that I thought was curried-chicken salad but was actually tuna (and contained raisins and nuts)-sooo yum!

Bride-To-Be's Sster Kelly and the cute Flower Girl!

Anyway, the shower was beautiful and I am sure it forecasted the beauty-to-come.  The wedding is in July and I am so excited!

What a fun night!  Loved it!  Again, pictures tell a thousand word. Let’s let them do “the blogging talking.”

What a blast!
