Working It Out and #LivePink

Hi there! Are you a new visitor to the site? Feel free to follow my updates on Twitter and RSS blog feed. 

The last, almost 2 weeks, have been pretty successful since I have temporally changed my focus from running to more cardio & weight training. Picking either a day to work on upper body, a day of lower body and a day of cardio with a bit of ab training on those days. I had Friday and Saturday as my rest days last week. Sunday was an hour of elliptical at BSU.  Monday was legs. Today was elliptical.

My rec center view on Sunday.
Oh, man, I have felt that I have needed to move and challenge my body by doing more then the same running form for miles and miles and miles. I was so sore last week after the split lunge/squat thingies that I hurt for 3 days after. And I only did 2 or 3 sets of 10-12 each. I don't remember how many I did, but that's my standard set/rep goal for weight training.

Are they called split squats?


Either way, whatever they are called, I felt it in my glutes and hammys for 3 days. 3 freaking days!

Today, I was tired. 6 hours of sleep for some strange reason, and I just ellipticaled it out while watching Wings on TV for a half hour. Despite the show being 20 years old, I love it. So funny!

When I got done with today's workout, I did something even more important to my health.

I made an appointment for a mammogram that I have put off for about 3-4 years.

Thanks to FitApproach, and Self Magazine, I got the guilty nudge I needed to call my doctor. I need a mammogram for an issue I have. I don't want to go into details, but things are not normal and have gotten worse over the last couple of months. My doctor checked me out, gave me a referral AND an appointment for a mammogram 3-4 years ago, but I made excuses for not going in. Even though I have insurance and no excuses for not going in other then being scared, I didn't go to my mammogram appointment. I don't have a history of any cancer in my family, but as we all know, we don't have to have a family history of something to have a current health problem.

No excuses today. I made the appointment. I am going to get my mammogram.

I Sweat Pink and now I Live Pink.

What was your workout today? Have you ever had a mammogram? What are you doing to take care of your health?

  1. Yes, split squats are what they are called. At least that is what my coach calls them.
    My workout was brutal in a good way. It was my 3rd Farmgirlfit workout. I am hoping for two things tomorrow- it won't hurt to breath and that the thought of walking doesn't hurt. :-)

Happy Birthday To Me

Happy Birthday to me. You know how I celebrated the start of my birthday on midnight at work? (I actually am not taking my birthday off. Why can't all birthdays be on a weekend day?) Burpees, pushups, squats, crunches. One for every year. So, I did 22 of each. Ok, 24. ;-) Sunday, for the BFs birthday, we had a shot of Wild Turkey. And our birthday shot (which I found out Vista Bar doesn't do free birthday shots - shame on them! Looks like Neurolux is my preferred birthday celebration location because I know they give free birthday shots) made me want to really enjoy another, but I refrained. Actually, I think this weekend, I will be taking in a cocktail or 4 at the  Modern . I also made sure to sign up for lots of restaurants deals for birthday goodies this year because I like being a cheapskate. I like it when places give you a week (or all month) to use the goodies and not just on your birthday day. I don't want to go for a free b-day meal alone on my birt

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-) Don't remember where I found this at The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with. From a Buzzfeed post a bit ago I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the light

New Race Plans

Ugh. Is there anyone that does not have a canceled race yet? I am seriously glad that we are all together in the pain of this. I got word on Thursday that my Race to Robie Creek half marathon is canceled and won't be happening the 3 Saturday in April. I am sad because this is the only race I care about all year. My email about the race But then I got an email for my St. Patty's Day 5K on Saturday the 14th is still on, but without water stops and post-race snacks. My email from Thursday That is totally cool. I never drink water in the middle of 5Ks so its no big deal to me. On Friday night I was prepping for the morning. I decided to confirm on the website the start time. Website Notification Oh, look. Its canceled. Did I get an email about this? It went to my spam folder so it was there and they did let us know. They were gonna still mark the course, so I did appreciate that. I had pulled my green race outfit out of storage and I just purchased a new gre
