Random Favorite Things

I’m in a totally random and weird mood. I’ve got a lot on my mind so this is going to be a bit of a brain dump with a general category of my favorite things. Continue if you dare…

It started to snow again last night. This morning I got up and got dressed for CrossFit but checked outside and didn’t think it was a good idea to be out on the roads at 430am… it was probably ok, looks slushy now, but I’m not a fan of driving in the snow at all. I mean, I grew up in Florida! I’d rather be safe than sorry. Hopefully it stays nice and I can sneak out to an afternoon CrossFit class. We’ll see if that happens. Tuesdays are usually my crazy days because I procrastinate doing school work until the last minute and it’s all due at Midnight on Tuesday.

Speaking of all the snow- Can we talk about Half Marathon training? I was feeling SO confident about it up until about 2 weeks ago. All our traveling on the weekends has thrown off my long run schedule… and the snow has thrown off my interval training. I haven’t run more than a 10k and I haven’t done my speed work runs for nearly 2 weeks. I’m sure I’ll catch back up, especially now that I have a new friend to help me out… Introducing Goldie!

I have been wanting a treadmill for awhile now. All this snow and my frustration of lack of training helped me convince my amazing husband to buy me a treadmill. I got the Gold’s Gym Trainer 410Β from Walmart. So far I’m loving it. I ran 3 miles on Sunday and 2 miles on it yesterday after CrossFit. It has been awhile since I’ve been on a treadmill so I’m still finding my groove. It is WAY tougher for me mentally. So that should be a fun challenge. I need to get 7 miles in sometime this week, so that will be a huge test of mental strength.

Along with random treadmill runs and CrossFit I’ve also been trying to work on my pushups! I’ve jumped on the bandwagon with Wine to Weightlifting as a part of her #nogirlypushups challenge. I started using the 100 pushups app on my iphone and have been doing that this week. I’ve been doing hand release push ups to help with my range of motion. The app is great because you do sets and intervals. It’s been great! I can’t wait to be a Push Up Princess!

Remember my post about Gwynnie Bee? Another great thing about it is that they always have new arrivals coming out! They sent me a few pieces from their new arrivals they are releasing today. I’m in love!

OMG – I’m in love. That Skinny Girl bar was gone in a flash. Peanut Butter and Coconut? Yes please! The Face cleaning system is so cool. And I’m all over the Clinical Strength Deodorant (or it’s all over me) But my favorite?

Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray. This stuff is amazing. It smells like vacation and does amazing things to my hair!

  2. LOVE Random posts! Let’s see – Congrats on the treadmill. I havent named mine yet (gotta work on that) but I love her, and though we have a love/hate relationship at times, I know she is always there for me.

    Speaking of – what kind of running shoes do you wear, cause I am in the market for a new pair.

    LOVE the Pushup app – gonna download that JUST as soon as I check out Wine to Weightlifting…. sooooo glad I found your blog!
