Weekly Wrap and Announcement 

Happy Monday!!!

How is everyone doing?

I am recovering from a relaxing girls weekend on the Bay, where there was much too much clear liquid consumed (and it wasn’t water or wine!!!) and very little sleep to be had (when was the last time you went to bed at 5:30am….)  but, I would do it all again in a heartbeat!!!

My view all weekend!!



Well it is that time again to join my friends Holly from HoHo Runs and Tricia from MissSippiPiddlin for the weekly wrap-thanks for the opportunity  ladies!


Make sure to stop by and check out how other bloggers spent their week.

I will start with my workouts and sprinkle in some other stuff too…if that is olk with you all…

Workout Training Week:

A few things:

-Let me start by saying, I have yet to really find the running mojo but I have been getting a bit better at training runs…not this week but generally.

-I started a new strength training workout this week and LOVE IT!!!!! For the next 6 weeks, I will be doing Ashley Horner’s Charlie Mike Program. Ashley Horner is one bad Biatch! Think of Jillian Micheals with a times 10 more fience attitude! She is freaking awesome. This program is NOT for beginners!

Here is what she says:



Charlie Mike is going to kick your ass. Some days will challenge you to go harder, faster, and further than you’ve ever gone before. But my expectations will remain the same: Never give up, always conquer your weaknesses, and no matter what, continue the mission.

Physically, this six-week program is going to help you get more explosive, more powerful, stronger, and leaner. When you’re done, you’re also going to feel like a badass. In fact, you’re going to feel like a completely different person—and it will show on the outside.

YES….SIGN ME UP PLEASE!!! This fits in perfectly with my FIT goals that I shared last week.

That heated yoga @extendyoga felt sooooo good after that tough weight training this morning. As always a great way to center, to breathe and to release all that is not serving me.



Rest Day!


A hilly 5 mile race with @mcrrc. Clearly I need to include more hills in my training!

The scenery was beautiful though.

A full week of workouts and shenanigans…..leads to a a Rest Day Monday (today)!!!

A little bit of Family Time shares….

I feel like I haven’t talked about my kiddies in a while

This weekend we went to my son’s school for Family Science Night.  The theme was science through music.  It was really neat learning about vibrations, pitch, sounds, how we hear and how to make music with household items (yes all the post, pans and containers are being used to create a band now-lol!!)

They really enjoyed themselves!
