How’s your day going so far? Mine is great! I got my work out in this morning. It was a quick cardio followed by some upper body strength training. And I’m thinking an abs workout will be thrown in later. I have finished up the laundry and most of the cleaning, but I feel like I’m never really done with it. Gotta love kids. LOL!
How is everyone’s Memorial Day weekend going? We’re hanging in here and bracing for Tropical Storm Beryl. Personally, I’m not worried. I think we’ll end up with lots of rain and wind but nothing that will cause too much damage, although a few trees have fallen in the city. We’ve been under a Tropical Storm Warning since yesterday morning and it’s supposed to last through Tuesday. This morning they added a Flood Watch too. We’re slightly inland so I’m not worried about flooding at all.
As we speak, the front of the storm is beginning to hit Jacksonville, FL and expected to make landfall in a few hours.
The days have just seemed to slip by lately and are going by way to fast. I wake up for work and before I know it, it’s the end of the day. It’s now Tuesday night and I am sitting here watching Dancing With The Stars and I have no post about the weekend. As I’m watching this Sheri Sheppard is dancing to It’s Raining Men and I have missed her. She may not have been the best dancer, but she is hilarious!
I know, I know, I shared a ton of pictures but I had so much fun I couldn’t just pick a few I liked to share. Just like the other pics, these are unedited for now and I will share some of my edited pics when I get them done, but I hope you like these.
I know I talked about how perfect the weather was and my failed apps. Well, I figured out the problem…it was too cloudy. Sunday I had the same problem with the apps not logging correctly or at all. There were a ton of clouds due to Tropical Storm Alberto being just off the coast (well 100 miles off the coast but they in comparison to the size of the ocean, that’s close. haha). I even got a little rained on towards the end of my run but thankfully it was just light rain.
Look at those Alberto cloud (and view of downtown Savannah as I drive towards Beaufort. I don’t recommend this. It’s not easy). This picture doesn’t really show just how dark this clouds in the distance really were.
I stepped out the door this morning to get back on the C25K train and it was gorgeous outside. It was a cool 63 degrees outside. If only TJ didn’t have to head to SCAD, and I didn’t have what feels like a million things to do, I think I could have stayed out there all day. But that is not the case. I have to dig through Jordyn’s newborn clothes for a few outfits to go up as decoration for a baby clothes line at a baby shower tomorrow. I also need to paint the clothes pins to match the theme. I have endless amounts of laundry and cleaning to do, need to do some Pinterest searching for some picture ideas for a photo session later, and then have to head downtown for the photo session. I’m hoping I’ll be able to scout out a few side streets or other locations for future ideas as well.
As for my run this morning, I’d like to think I did better, but I honestly have no clue. My C25K app decided to not log any times and my Map My Run app gave me some times that I wish were right but I don’t think are.
If you look at the second picture you can see I have an average pace of 9:39 and a max pace of 6 min/mile. I wish. I know I can’t run that fast. I think somewhere along my route, I must have lost a signal and when the app caught back up it messed with the times. I feel like I had a faster time today than the first week but it’s hard to tell. I know my distance is farther even though this says otherwise as well but how far, I’m not really sure. Hopefully I won’t have the same problem again tomorrow and I’ll have a better idea of how I did. For now, I just have to be satisfied with completing another day, which s=isnt easy when I want to know my times.
Has something like this happened to you? A failed app, heart rate monitor or even piece of gym equipment?
I am SO happy it’s Friday! This week is almost over and this week has been crazy enough.
We arrive to the ER just before midnight and thankfully don’t have to wait long to be seen. The doctor immediately wants some X-Rays. That was difficult. My poor baby was in so much pain and I had to hold her down. After X-Rays, the orthopedist trauma surgeon comes in and tells us my sweet little 15 month old daughter has broken her arm above the elbow, and the bone has shifted. She would have to have surgery in the morning so they could move it back and possibly put pins in her arm to keep in place. He, of course, has to go through the risks of the surgery and how unfortunately this procedure is not as simple as many people think. Because she will have to have surgery, they will be admitting her, and a tired mom, 6 year old and 15 month old are finally settled into a room around 3:30 in the morning. It wasn’t until 4am before Dylan fell asleep, who was such a trooper through the whole thing. Not one complaint from that kid. Gotta love him. After giving Jordyn some pain medication she has fallen asleep, but they still had a million questions for me and I needed to call TJ.
Just a mere few hours later, Jordyn goes in for surgery and comes out great. The doctors all praised how well she did. Look at this poor baby.
We finally head home around 6:30 and all I wanted was dinner and to relax. It was take out from Outback and an about an hour at home with TJ and the kids before TJ had to head back to work and the kids went to bed. Not my favorite Mother’s Day. On the bright side, they did get me some pretty great gifts.
My card is so cute along with my very own newspaper. And my fitbit is AWESOME! Next week, I’ll share some of the details of the fitbit.
After an exhausting first night home, I have to work Monday and come and am exhausted. The lack of sleep from the two previous days has me so worn out that a workout is not happening. I obviously didn’t get a workout in Sunday either due the events, so I have every intent on kicking butt, the rest of the week.
Then in the middle of the night I wake up sick. UGH! I felt horrible and it was definitely carrying over to Tuesday. I never call out of work but there was no way I was going in. I did start feeling better as the day went on but I wasn’t 100%, so again no workout. As for Wednesday and yesterday, I don’t really have an excuse for not working out. I was going to go to the gym after work Wednesday but TJ had a meeting to go at school and I took some pictures of a friend in her wedding dress so her mom could see it, but I could have done an at-home workout and didn’t. Bad Sabrina. LOL! And yesterday was worse. I wanted to go running, but it was running so I didn’t go and that was it. TJ had no where to be so I could have gone to the gym, or could have easily done an at-home workout. Double bad Sabrina. And today, I get home from work and Dylan is sick. I’m ready for a new week. LOL!
I DID get up this morning and head to the gym. It’s about time!
I also did a weigh-in since I missed my Sunday weigh-in. I am down .2 pounds. Can’t complain since I didn’t really workout.
And I ate pretty well today too.
Thomas 100 Calorie English Muffin topped with one wedge of Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese and some Chia Seeds, and washed down with Silk Pure Almond Dark Chocolate Milk (my excuse for this was I keep hearing how low-fat chocolate milk is a good after-workout snack. hehe). Sorry about no picture but I completely forgot to take a picture of this
Grande Iced Coffee with Sugar Free Hazelnut
Spinach Salad topped with a hard boiled egg, tortilla strips, almond slices, feta and sweet onion vinegarette dressing
Caramel Brownie Luna Bar
Kroger Frozen Shrimp Stir-Fry
After a not so good workout week, I plan on combining Weeks 2 and 3 in the C25K program to catch myself up along with some more gym time and I need to get more strength training in. I’ve done some but not enough.
On a completely random topic, look at my new shoes!
As for this weekend, other than workouts, I have more pictures to take. This time it’s a combo of engagement pictures/family pictures for a friend (if the rain holds up like it’s supposed to) and a baby shower in Beaufort on Sunday.
What are your weekend plans? Are they social, or are they productive things like housework and yard work?
So, I’m not keeping up with this as much as I would like. 🙁 Right now, we don’t have the internet at my house. It keeps cutting out on us so we left AT&T and are switching to Comcast, but they can’t come out til Monday or Tuesday so reading my blogs in Google Reader from my phone isn’t the easiest and either is blogging for that matter.
I started the program with a friend. She wasn’t so sure it was something she could do but she gave it a shot and I think she did great for not being a runner
The next two days were in my neighborhood and on my own. I felt pretty good for both of these days and am excited to move on to the next week.
