fit train friday

it's been awhile since i've done an update on my workouts.  yesterday marked 100 days {!!} until our wedding, so inspired by mcw, i've set a goal for myself of working out at least 70 times/days out of those 100 days.  if i lose a half a pound a week between now and the wedding, i will officially be back at the weight i was when the beau and i first met.  those seem like reasonable goals, no?

now of course i kicked off the 100 days by going home after work and passing out on the couch for an afternoon cat nap.  exercise FAIL.  and we're leaving right after work today to head to the homestead for the weekend! my generous in-laws are celebrating their 35th wedding anniversary there for the next couple of days, and since it's just over the mountain from where the beau and i live, they invited us to join them for tonight and tomorrow.  as fabulous as that is, it means i'll also miss today's workout.  so my plan to make up for being a total slacker the first two days is to hit the treadmill tomorrow morning to get in a good run and then we're planning on exploring the hiking trails on the property tomorrow afternoon.  so that's two workouts in one day, right? i'm counting it.

my current exercise plan is basically to not allow myself to get bored, which happens easily when it comes to exercise.  right now i run on mondays and fridays, do pilates on tuesdays and thursdays, and do a sports circuit class on wednesdays.  saturdays and sundays are off days, with the exception of taking the pupster for a walk.  for those days when i just cannot make my butt go to the gym, i'm thinking i might try out the 30-20-10 circuit that iowa girl eats just posted.  anything you're doing right now that's really working for you?  my main concern is getting my arms, back, and booty in shape, since those are the areas either exposed or, ahem, accented by my wedding dress.  any suggestions?

and now, because i'm just so excited, let's look at some pretty pictures of the homestead, shall we?

I happened upon your blog today and am following now - its adorable!

I'm trying to get myself motivated to spend more time exercising before my wedding as well. Its further away than yours but nevertheless I'm struggling with motivation.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend trip! Would love to have you link up for a Bridal Talk Tuesday on my blog soon!
