Hi! What a beautiful day. I am truly counting my blessings this morning. I woke up (naturally) before 7am, so I decided to just get up and get the day started! Why not? I had thought about doing a early run this morning, but after my kick-butt workout last night, I needed to take it EASY this morning!
I am in such a good mood! Why, you ask?! Several reasons.
- I am still on a bit of FITNESS HIGH from last night’s KILLER glute workout!
- I am FINALLY getting back into the swing of exercise, coming off of bad allergies and sickness.
- I am moving into my NEW apartment today, PERMANENTLY!
- My mom is coming into town in a few hours to spend the weekend with me, and prep my apartment!
- The farmer’s market is in the morning!
- God is so very good!
Is that enough reasons to be cheery?! As if the fact that it is Friday isn’t enough, right?!
Let’s talk about last night. I spent all of yesterday packing/catching up on work and emails. Last night, it was time to KILL it in the gym. I was tired, but I knew it needed to be done.
THREE CHEERS FOR A…
Confession: I used to have a butt. Seriously, a ROUND backside. Back in my high school days, I was known for this. Now? It’s gone. I have literally ran it off. All of my running/exercising and toning/strength training has flattened my booty to nonexistence. This? THIS is not okay. I want my booty back!
So, what am I going to do about it? WORK IT! Squats. Lunges. Repeat.
Are you looking for an INTENSE and glute-enhancing workout? Seriously, give this a try. When I finally finished this routine, I could not walk. Yes, I gauge my workouts by the fact that I exit the gym with jello legs and look like a crazy person. Judge me, maybe? The BEST part is walking up and down stairs. I hug the railing for dear life!!!!
I spent about 15 minutes in the sauna post-workout and THIS made all the difference for my muscles this morning. Luckily, I didn’t wake up with jello legs. I might tomorrow though. But, I am okay with that!
I plan to get an outdoor run in tonight or tomorrow, time-permitting. It’s time to finish up on some work. Pack a bit more, and await the arrival of my mom. It’s going to be a great weekend–full of unpacking, organizing, girl chat, and shopping. I cannot complain. I’m hoping to get my mom out for an early morning or late-night LONG walk around my beautiful Texas Tech campus.
Enjoy your Friday! Get out there and KILL your workouts, work your booties, and be awesome!
