Workout Overload!
I feel kind of bad because I'm really just using my site as a regular everyday journal lately. The recipes are few and far between because I pretty much cook and eat eat everything fast. Which is not good, but I don't have a lot of experimenting time or picture taking time. Also, the interesting foods are pretty scarce too. Seriously, how many times do you want to see egg white omelets with some sort of vegetable and baked potatoes covered in nutritional yeast? I mean, the meal doesn't bore me, but I'm pretty sure the pictures bore the heck out of all of you.

Lately, the focus has been workouts. Fuel too, but my brain is definitely in exercise mode. I think this is due to my studies being focused on exercising. I worked out on Tuesday morning with an interval workout and then strength training. Then on Tuesday night, I worked out with my friend that's studying for her personal training certification too. I LOVE her workouts. We workout differently, but I love the challenge she brings to my workouts. I won't go into the whole workout because it's hers and I don't feel right doing that. She designed it. I will tell you that it started out with a 1 mile run. She is training for a triathlon and running is a breeze for her. She knows I'm working on it. I will tell you, for some this won't mean much, but I ran an 11 minute mile and didn't hate it! No walking! I also ran another mile through the course of the workout, but it was broken up with strength moves, which I really liked. Made it seem a little easier. When we were done, I showed her some Core Fusion moves that she didn't know about. I've never been a heavy weight lifter (not because I'm scared of getting bulky ), but I've found that doing strength training like Core Fusion helps me build up the smaller less worked muscles and helps with my joints. I feel more in control of my movements after I do those types of workouts oh and I love the long lean muscles of dancers. So, it's been fun changing things up and I love sharing things with someone else that has a deep interest in exercise.

Oh then Wednesday was a gym workout morning with the boys. They begged me to go even though I was going to call it a rest day. I had to take them. So, I ran another mile and a half with Jay (a run walk with our 5k trainer), then did a HIIT round with Max (also taught him how to hit the punching bag) and then I helped the boys with some strength moves. It was fun showing them some stuff even though the last thing I wanted to do was workout.

This morning I did a super light dance cardio with the Star Trainers. It was fun and loosened me up. Now, my brain needs to change over to study and work mode.

I am so ready for tomorrow. My hair is coming off first thing in the morning! I am going to feel so light with all this hair gone. I will post pictures at some point. Tony is going to work some photoshop magic so I can make sure I'm getting the cut I want. Fingers crossed it turns out well. I love short hair, but it's been a while...

Have a great Thursday!

    You know I love Core Fusion. Especially the leg exercises. They're super tough when you first start, but once you get the hang of it. It's easy breezy.

    I don't care what you write about, I like your updates!

    Good luck with your haircut! I'm gonna chop mine very soon---it's not super long now, but I want to go shoulder length, just for a fresh start and easier to manage in the mornings!

    I think I am about to chop about 10 inches off my hair and donate it. I am tired of my long sweating pony tail whipping me when I run!

    i have low blood pressure and am o/ a lot.. I started clean-eating but couldn't get over the weird texture of oatmeal and eggs as "pancakes" now i mill my own flour in my breville blender- makes a better pancake.. the redux: 1c oats, 1tbsp wheatgerm, 1/2 c quinoa or buckwheat depending.. once whizzed to a fine flour I add a pinch o'salt, 1egg white, 1/2c skim milk, water, 1/3 c brown muscovado,teeny bit baking soda and cook 'em up, makes 4 cakes..hearty ,but light with a full flavour..its cheaper than buying prepackaged.. (I write all the way from South Afica)

    I can't wait to see your hair!! :)

    Guess what I just ate for lunch? An egg scramble with two eggs, a baked potato, a hefty couple of handfuls of shredded cabbage, topped with cheese and hot sauce. ;)

    I was wondering if you had alreayd cut your hair and if you had already donated it. Because if you didn't I might know some wigmakers that might be willing to pay for it, that way you can donate the money yu get from it. Just an idea. You can mail me at jenifferdawson at ymail dot com.
