The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World Review

This post is sponsored by The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World book by Allison Sher.

I was given a digital copy of this book. I thought that it would be good to read, even though I am a Gen X'er. There is just so much talk about the Millennial's right now that I thought that it would be good to get to know what is going on inside their head.


About the Book  The Millennial's Guide to Changing the World teaches young people everything they need to know to change the world, while building a happy, healthy adult life for themselves. It explains how our current social systems work, the challenges young people are inheriting and how millennials can step into our power to create a critical mass conversion to solve them. Everything from politics to spirituality to love relationships to education to sex to economics to mental health is covered. And it includes 50 or so juicy, true life stories from millennials across the country…

A New Goal

This past weekend was the end of a big month of racing for me. I enjoyed it and wish I could race every single freaking weekend. Even more so now that the weather is perfect. I love fall weather with the cooler temps, colors of the trees, smells in the air, and the better air quality!

Federal Way during City of Trees half. There was a blanket of trees!
But I have a new goal for this fall. I don't have any races on the calendar, although I may do a couple of 5Ks for Thanksgiving, Xmas, & New Years. I am still deciding on going to AZ for Rock N Roll with the BF's fam.

My new goal is to get some cross training in. And by cross training, I plan on ellipticaling, weight training hard, and yes, I plan on still running. Hopefully getting a little faster/lighter during this time too.

Another goal is to get my blog a little more how I want it. Sorry the header is kinda janky. I forgot I don't have Photoshop on my new laptop and I am kinda too lazy to dig out my old laptop, which has everything Adobe on it.  Like I know how to use PS & Illustrator anyways. I can crop pics smaller. That is about it.

Anyways, I want to get stronger and build more muscle. This is something I totally slacked on this summer, even though I have access to weights and bands, I just didn't do it. This is why this is my focus for this new season. I also need to get some more flexibility. I am freaking tight.

I don't plan on running for a week or two. And it is going to kill me, so we are going to have to see how long that self-imposed ban will last.

Clubhouse set up. I watched the old show Wings after Scrubs while working out.
Today's workout was a get out of  bed, grab a handful of Honey Nut Cheerios and get to the clubhouse workout - You are welcome for the lack of closeup pic. I didn't brush my hair, teeth or add a new swipe of deodorant.

8 minute warm up on elliptical
15 pound dumbbell with thrusters, deltoids raises to the sides and front, bent over rows, bicep hammer & concentration curls, flys and lat pull downs with the machine. I don't know how much weight was on that.
30 & 25 pound dumbbell tri extensions.
10 pound dumbbell Russian Twists
3 minute cool down on elliptical.
I usually do 3 sets of 12 reps or so.  

Girlfriend got sweaty. And I forgot my weight gloves. Now, my hands feel horrible. I will not forget them again!

Do you change your goals during winter compared to summer? I didn't last year, but giving it a go this year.

  1. I have the SAME goal as you this winter - strength train! I feel like i spent so much time this year trying to squeeze in miles that i didn't really progress as a runner. Lesson learned!

    1. Strength training is so important, but I am so sore after doing it yesterday.

  2. I like the new layout- blogs are works in progress. I still don't have mine the way I like it.

    1. Thanks. I agree. You have to keep things fresh. I am just realizing some of the bigger sites I visit update each season or so.
