MS 150

 

I have officially signed up for the MS 150

I have mixed feelings about it but overall positive ones. The MS 150 is a bike ride that benefits Multiple Sclerosis. It is a bike ride that starts in Houston and ends in Austin over a two day period. It is one of the biggest bike rides out there and people come from  all over to participate. I am happy, because the bike ride is for an excellent cause and also I am nervous, because I have only rode 28 miles at the most on my bike. There are training seminars that I can participate in and also my company does a full fledged support of it. I also will be riding with a few of my managers and supervisors so I am sure it will be fun. So if anyone is interested in donating to the cause, please donate on my behalf, everyone who rides has to raise at least $400.00!!! If you can donate just one dollar, a nickel, I will be grateful, because it is just one step closer to my fundraising goal. You can donate here

 

Thank you in advance for anyone who donates!!!

Weekend Recap

This weekend in Houston could not have been more perfect.

 

We are actually having a spring, and it is wonderful! I set my Sundresses and hats out, hung out outdoors with my dog, went to the park, and enjoyed great company. I mean there were no complaints.  Despite me adjusting to this new work schedule that requires me to work the weekends, I went to a crawfish boil, ate well and worked out. The sodium in the crawfish, however, made me bloated. I never noticed how foods  inflate you and make you feel puffy. Cleaning up my diet has given me such insight. I see now, why I should stay away. I no longer see food as food, I see the fat, sodium and sugars it possesses  This change was needed especially with the goals I have in mind. I ran with my dog in the park for about two hours, Did a mini circuit that required me to do 3 rounds of 25 crunches 25 mountain climbers and a 1 minute plank (which has surprisingly gotten easier!) I might add 10 burpees in the mix next time just to get my heart rate up. I also did the little cross fit butt blaster routine and ended my day with a light jog back to my apartment.

 

I didn’t take any pictures but I did read a few books this weekend and shop I bought this romper from Asos

 

 

and some shorts and a tee from Forever 21. I guess you can say I was extremely productive? Maybe!
