my friend nabum, who became a mom in october and looks fabulous as always, invited a bunch of us to join her in a 30-workouts-in-30-days challenge for the month of june. since i've been finding it a little tough to get myself motivated lately, i thought it was a great idea.
of course, i didn't sign up until june 2nd...and i'd taken a rest day the day before. oops. but the girls and i had gone to disneyland (shocker, i know), so i'm totally counting the five hours of walking around pushing the bean in a stroller. it's still activity, right?
saturday's exercise was that 5K i did. and my stepdad emailed me the funny photo i mentioned yesterday, taken as i tossed that goody bag towards my cheering squad on the downhill start. maybe it isn't as funny to you, but it still makes me laugh.
on sunday i yoga'd along with jillian michaels via my yoga meltdown DVD. i love that workout - it's a great strengthening and stretching session that still makes me sweat my ass off. and yesterday was fit club with my friends kelley and mr. lilcee.
i haven't gone on a run since saturday, but since it's tuesday and the bean isn't in school today, i'm kinda stuck at home. luckily, the hub recently made a purchase for his man cave - one that'll help me on days just like this:
yup, that's right. nestled in the corner behind the IL's ATV is one very fancy schmancy elliptical machine. it's really smooth, has a place to plug in my iPod if i want, and even has a built-in fan. for the sweaty messes that the hub and i both end up after a workout, this is fabulous. and i get to watch tv while i get my exercise in.
ah, the man cave. despite the lingering scent of cigar smoke, it's gonna be my best friend in the upcoming weeks. wish me luck as i attempt to conquer this new challenge. i'm already missing my rest days.
