Sorry for the delay peeps. The winner of my giveaway is: Ashley! Congrats!

I hope everyone is having a great week. It's busy around here as usual!

I've been staying motivated and working out daily. I've decided to back off on the weights and concentrate on running and biking. I'll still lift a couple times a week, but with much lighter weights. I think this is what I need to do to get fit and build the endurance I am seeking. I'm also hoping I'll drop a few pounds with the extra cardio! I consider my legs super strong, but let me tell you after running two miles and then the bleachers (only 2 minutes on the bleachers, I'm not completely crazy!), my legs were cashed. So below is my version of an ice bath. Super cold water with the one measly tray of ice cubes we had :) Mike offered to go buy a bag of ice, but eh, it was already dang cold! And yes, I know this pic is pathetic!

I'd like to leave you with this thought... "It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner. " Vince Lombardi


  1. Yay! Can't wait to get the goodies! Thanks again!

  2. Love the ice bath picture. Agreed, it's kinda pathetic ... but in an endearing way. It's the thought that counts!

  3. Haha, my preferred ice bath has the tray of ice from my ice maker sitting on the side of the tub, suggesting cold. I'll leave it there until my partner comes in and starts laughing at me and generously offers to throw it in the water. I think he really delighted in dumping 32 pounds on me this morning :) I just can't do that to myself!
