Fun for Friday - Week in FRIDAY


Right about now I'm trying not to completely stress myself out about the fact that I have not packed for my trip to Long Beach. I have pulled out what I'll sleep in/lounge in, my lifting gloves, iPod, and oatmeal. That has to count for something right?

Because I have travel on the brain, I almost went with travel/vacation for Fun for Friday. But I thought I'd probably end up repeating myself from previous pre-travel posts. Mostly rambling about anxieties and silliness like that. You know, things I can't control and should let go of. 

I decided to use Friday as my inspiration. As in the letters. So here is my week in FRIDAY.

Foodie - While I didn't take time to take pictures other than on my phone for Instagram, we had some really good eats this week. Concoctions thrown together mostly because I haven't had time to make it to the store - like roasted veggies baked with homemade red sauce, quinoa, tofu ricotta, and Daiya. Ugly but tasty! And a tempeh reuben sandwich.


Running - ran 5 miles with Jason for BostonStrongLR on Monday. Got in 6 solo miles Tuesday morning. Then knocked out 10 miles with Amy at a crazy speedy pace on Thursday. Today, 4 with hubby.

Infinite - as in longest week ever. Yet, somehow if felt like it was short too, as in not enough time to get everything done. 

Detailed - I've spent a good amount of time writing out detailed lists for the trip. I was hard at work most evenings adding restaurants and places we might visit to a Google map as well as making notes in a Google doc. 

Anxiety - won't lie, anxious about the trip. Not just packing or itinerary, but the travel itself. Missing my hubby, my comfort zones. 

Yawn - I haven't slept very well. Mostly because of over thinking the trip.

I guess I still brought up the travel huh? So while I am nervous, anxious, not yet-packed, and already missing Jason, I am looking forward to see the ocean, running along the ocean front, spending time with my sis and bestie AND getting to see Jolene

Now if only someone would pack for me and just beam me there. 

How's your week been in FRIDAY?

Hump Day and More Pineapples

Full-Body Workout  I'll readily admit that getting up this morning was quite painful and almost didn't happen. I forced myself out of bed though not exactly excited about tackling a full-body Pyramid workout. Sort of daunting at 5 am really. I did the warm up from Shock Cardio Cardio Core Circuit (cardio only premix) then hit the weights. It was a pyramid up only so I increased my starting weight. I topped it all off with the first 2 1/2 drills from the cardio workout. I ran short on time and was basically spent. Squats into Plie Squats Step Ups (seriously hate these especially at 5:30 am) Incline Chest Flyes into Chest Press Pullovers into DB Underhand Rows Step Ups (freaking again) Static Lunges Overhead DB Press into Lateral Raises Deadlifts Kickbacks into Overhead Extensions Hammer Curls into Alternating Curls Calf Raises I am so excited to report that my new cross-trainers and running shoes arrived today. Can't wait to test both of them out. I waited way way way too

Hitting the Gym and Lazy Means Creative Tex-Mex Creation

Sunday, Gym Day Why do vacations and min-vacations go by so quickly? Just doesn't seem quite right. Anyway, we left Branson around 9:30 am to head back home. It was a pretty uneventful drive back, which is usually a good thing. We got home and unpacked, then I headed up to the gym. I started with a 10-minute treadmill run to warm up before hitting the weights for back and light legs then abs. I went with a giant set for back then supersets for legs. GS - 4x8 Underhand barbell rows Pullovers Double-arm rows SS#1 Rear-leg elevated lunges (Bulgarian Split Squats) - 3x8 Calf raises - 3x20 SS#2 - 2x8 Walking lunges Plie squats with low-end pulse Single-leg deadlifts - 2x8 I did some ab exercises, stretched, and called it quits. Lazy = Crazy Dinner I may have made it to the gym and washed a few loads of laundry, but I never made it to the grocery store - lounging in the pool trumped grocery shopping. This meant getting creative with dinner. We had another package
