fit train friday



this week has absolutely CRAWLED by and i am so excited that it is the weekend in less than 3 hours!  although the beau is working all weekend {i'm a coaching widow until may}, i'm looking forward to some nesting and birthday preparations for him.  his is quickly approaching! at his request, i'm making p-dub's lasagna for his birthday dinner, so i'm planning on using tomorrow to make it and put it in the freezer to make things a little easier on myself {his birthday is on a weeknight}.  i'm also planning on doing a little present shopping.  i'm putting together a big gift basket for him, so i'm hoping to pick up a few items.  can't wait to show y'all the finished product!

i haven't posted on fit train friday in awhile, so i thought i'd update you on where i stand.  i'm following this 6-month workout plan i found on the knot.  i'm just finishing up week 3 and i've also been following the couch 2 5k plan.  i'm starting week 5 today.  i'm also starting a spin class on monday night.  i've taken them before and loved them, but they were never offered at a time that worked for me.  a friend of mine is teaching a class this semester on monday and wednesday nights in an ideal time slot.  i'm not looking forward to the achey legs and butt the first week or two, but i'm definitely looking forward to the 700 calories burned per class!  i've signed up to run a 10-miler at the end of march, so that's my motivation to keep going.  if i use the wedding as a motivation, i start to think that it's so far away from now that i can slack and it will be fine.  not good.  i'm still not happy with my weight or shape right now, but i'm trying not to get so wrapped up in numbers and focus more on getting healthy, toned, and comfortably back in my jeans!

hope y'all have a fabulous weekend and stay warm, east-coasters!

I did spin class last night and it was great! I love that it breaks up the monotony of the elliptical machine.

Have a WONDERFUL weekend :)

I've never done spin but I hear great things. I might need to try it too.

Good for you! I hope you get to where you want to be. Almost two weeks a go I cut out sugar from my diet. Completely. No sugar. I've lost 10 lbs. It's amazing what that junk does to your body!
