Wow, Time Flies!

Can’t believe I haven’t posted in almost a week.. oops! Things got super busy around here this weekend so I will just hit some of the highlights 🙂

Workouts:

Thursday- Rest

Friday- Interval Run 2 min easy / 1 min hard x5

Saturday- Swimming workout with my husband! 100m easy / 50 m kick / 50 m easy / 16x25m hard with 5 sec rest / 200 m cool down (800m total)

Sunday – 3.5 mile run at the park.. this was supposed to be at least 5 miles but I was too sleep deprived from working floor set the night before that it just wasn’t going to happen..

Monday – 10 min bike warm up / NROLFW (New Rules of Lifting for Women) Workout 1A / 10 min elliptical cool down

Food:

I made the worlds most delicious chocolate chip cookies this weekend!

They were the most deliciously perfect cookies I’ve ever had.. the secret ingredient was CORNSTARCH!

It made the cookies have that soft/fluffy texture that I love. I will definitely be making them again! I will pass along the recipe 🙂

I also made some lasagna to eat over the weekend. You can never go wrong with pasta in this house.. I did marry an Italian 😉

Reading:

I finished the book “Blackberry Winter” by Sarah Jio in less then 24 hours this weekend! It was such a quick easy read and I would recommend it to anyone. I will do a full review in a later post, but it was such a good read I had to put in something here too!

NROLFW:

I have seen a lot about this lifting plan online so I figured I would incorporate it into my workout schedule. I have been looking to add some strength training in the mix, and this seemed like a good fit! It is about a 6 month program total and it is divided into 7 stages. The first stage is 16 workouts total so it will last about 6 weeks of 3 workouts a week. I did Workout 1A on monday and I can definitely feel it today! You basically start doing a set of A exercises and a set of B exercises then as the weeks progress you increase the weight and decrease the reps. Sounds like a plan to me! I have never been on a legitimate strength plan before, so I will be interested to see how my body responds.

Those were some of the highlights of the weekend. I am really looking forward to the Army 1st Cavalry Ball on Valentine’s Day, Thursday! I will definitely post pics and do a blog just for that but here is a picture of the dress I will be wearing:

I am so excited to get all dressed up and have a night out. This is the first Valentine’s Day we have actually got to spend together the past four years. It is long over due and we can’t wait!
