2,4,6,8,10 Treadmill Workout

Whenever we have family or friends staying with us, it makes me feel like we’re on vacation, too. It’s nice to slooooooow down for a second, sometimes play tourists in our own city, and just enjoy being together.

Yesterday afternoon, we all went swimming:



(little fish was very busy eating a bagel chip, hence the lack of smiles)

and then 15 of us went out for dinner at G Grill.

Even though we were a large party -with three high chairs- the service was awesome, the food was delicious, Liv got to dance to mariachis, and was very happy with the made-before-your-eyes salsa. During dinner, Livi and one of her cousins, seated in the high chair next to each other, would stop to kiss each other or hold hands in between bites. Basically, it was the cutest thing in the world.


With a belly full of Mexican food and everyone sleeping, I ventured out to the gym to get in a little before-bed cardio. It felt great to read the new O magazine and shake my legs out before calling it a night. I was wondering if I should post last night’s workout, because I’ve already done the “2,4,6,8,10” theme twice.

I believe that jokes are no longer funny after the second time you tell them. (If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know I don’t always follow my own rule….. Anyway….) Is it the same thing with workouts? 😉

The perfect mix of challenging and energizing — I was sweaty but not totally zonked at the end. Let me know if you give it a try!

This morning, we’re helping the fam move, and then maybe hitting up a movie later tonight. See ya later on the Family page with a project that’s near and dear to my heart.



When was your last vacation? If you could go on a trip this very second, where was you choose? A little Tuesday daydreaming is always nice 😉

    Goal for next Shape Up — actually keep up with check ins at the very least if not the whole thing! Oy!

    An hour of cardio yesterday — 1/2 walking outside, 1/2 on the stairmaster — to hack away at my steady state deficit. Almost caught up on week 3 now!

    I did this, and my booty is sore today! I pushed myself to finish the workout, and just make it a 5k. I was feeling froggy, and decided to do a tabata of push ups. I’m proud!
