Friday Faves

I am taking a page from one of my blogger friends book, thedancingrunner and listing some favorites or things I want.

For starters, I want this coffee mug!

 

 

It’s so edgy. Some purchases I made recently, are shoes. I have plenty of flats and shoes for outside of work, but the majority of my work shoes are torn and tattered. So I went to the clearance section of Target and copped these two bad boys.

 

 

I live for the clearance/sales at Target. I never buy anything full price unless it speaks to me.
Today I am running on approximately 5 hours of sleep, and I have a session with my trainer. O_O. Wish me luck. I will probably go straight to bed after that! Ha! For anyone who has lost a significant amount of weight, I would like to ask you, do you have a hard time accepting the reality that you are actually achieving your goal, or surpassing it? ,That is currently happening to me. I look in the mirror and I expect to see what I saw in January. Instead I see my physique taking on a more athletic tone, and it’s amazing and hard to really believe that this is my body in metamorphosis. It inspires me to push myself harder to see what else will get a little tighter, or what else will manifest. Hopefully, I don’t sound crazy, but this is truly an experience.

In other fitness news, I would like to get my running mojo back and run more than 3 miles. I feel like my knee is up for it and I would like to push myself to run a 10k. I used to love running, and it was therapy to hear my breath, my feet hit the pavement, and feel my heart beating at a fast, but steady rate. So I found a training schedule for beginners on Women’s Health. They currently have a 10k that is going to be run throughout the country. Here is there training schedule for beginners.:

Garage Fit, Beauty Overhaul and etc

On tuesday,

I went for more Garage fit. He worked my lower back, and ab muscles and helped me with my knee’s flexibility. I cannot sit on my feet comfortably. So, he gave me homework and told me to practice it so I could get a better range of motion. I really think it has more to do with my nerves than anything. I will get through this!!! I burned 600+ calories and fell asleep before my head hit the pillow. Gizmo, naturally was not excited about that. My dog lives for a game a fetch. I don’t. LOL. But his interests are my interests.

I have been in the business of buying new shoes. Shoes for leisure. I have a tendency to wear shoes out, because I wear them repeatedly. I have holes and cracks and some in a lot of my favorite shoes. So, I bought new ones!!! This certainly was not planned, but when you follow a gangload of fashionistas and have a few as friends, the shopping bug will bite you! So this is what I bought! (Can you tell I am excited)

 

and while searching for these shoes I found a lot more deals. Target is having a nice sale! I need a second job to support my recent shoe fetish. LOL.

Yesterday, I had my root canal and crown put in and I looked like a blow fish. Whatever they numbed me with was amazing. I had a great rapport with my Endodontist(A dentist who only does root canals) and my doctor. Take a look at my pic:

 

 

Today was supposed to be a Garage Fit day, but something came up with my trainer, so I may just ride my bike. I haven’t rode in 3 weeks! Crazy!!!! Well I hope everyone is doing fine. I am just excited to finally be back to normal!
