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. :-)

Twin Falls Love Locks

During the Rim to Rim race a few weeks ago, I noticed something cool.

Someone started up a Love Locks overlooking the canyon! I told the BF about it - we always put up locks on places that seem fitting - but we never got around to doing our own lock in Twin Falls until I noticed this Twitter from ThisIsBoise.


If you follow the link that ThisIsBoise posted - it is a GIVEAWAY to those who put a love lock on the fence overlooking the canyon! Ok! I HAD to do this with the BF!

The BF got a lock and put our initials and other symbols important to us on it.

If you park where the new visitor center is, walk away from the bridge along the canyon path. 





Ooh look. There is it. 

 Our innitals, a bunny on the front and back of the lock, and Hoppity on this side of the lock.



I think our lock has a pretty good view of the canyon! 




If you are in the Twin Falls area, or are passing through this month with a love, you can enter the Love Locks giveaway here.

Have you and a sweetie ever put up a love…
