Fun Facts Friday

Feeling the Love
I want to start off by thanking everyone for being so supportive and for all of your kind, generous comments about my blog yesterday. 

Friday Morning Workout
This morning I actually got in a workout. My legs are so sore from yesterday's running drills and weight workout. I really just wanted something easy to get them moving and loosened up. There was no way I was going to be doing any step, HIIT or plyo. I chose a kickboxing DVD that I haven't done in ages: Cathe's Kick Max. I also did abs and stretched. It was a fun workout actually (or as fun as anything can be at 5:30 am). This one consists of 4 kickboxing combos (about 20 mins) plus 10 short drills (about 20 mins).

Doing the Friday Happy Dance
Today signified the end of a week of sunshine. The clouds are hanging in thick and heavy and we're in for some stormy weather for the next few days. I'm really hoping that the forecasters have it wrong and we'll have a few spells of no rain. I would really like to get out and run. It's no fun being cooped up inside. We have errands that need to get done, but those are no fun in rain either. Maybe I'll be able to spend some time in the kitchen trying a few new recipes. That sounds better than doing chores ;-)

I made sort of a happy mistake this week. The dogs were scheduled to be groomed today. I was going to go pick them up, which meant leaving work early. So, Wednesday I worked an extra hour to make up for the time. However, that was totally unnecessary because I was going to be working through lunch. I just wasn't thinking clearly on Wednesday (remember drained, in dire need of rest day). Anyway, it worked out in the end because I got to leave work at 2 pm, a nice way to end the work week if you ask me.

Fun Facts Friday

Since I typically don't post Friday dinner or a recipe, I thought it might be fun to do something that's just fun and silly. I'm steeling the idea from on fabulous lady Tina @ Tina Bit of Faith Fitness and Fun  because I have so very much enjoyed reading the tidbits she's been posting about herself. Thanks Tina!!!

So, I thought I might start doing Fun Facts Friday where I share a few fun facts about myself. Feel free to share some fun facts about yourself as well. I guess it can be a "get to know each other" session.
  1. I hate hate hate needles but didn't hesitate to get a tattoo 
  2. When I was a kid, I was embarrassed of my last name because I thought people would think that I was lying when I told them it was "Iacobacci" (now I cherish it).
  3. I have indeed danced on a table (or 2). There is an inner wild child in me.
There, 3 fun facts about me. Your turn!
