Dancing Shoes

I must apologize for the accidental missed blog post yesterday.  I know how dearly you must have missed me.  ;)  I do have a perfectly good explanation though.  You see, a group of girls went out on Saturday night to celebrate Sees’s 30th birthday.  We got all dolled up and went out for a lovely dinner.

After dinner, drinks, and cake we headed to a bar where some of the husbands met us.  There may or may not have been adult beverages consumed.  There was definitely some booty shakin’ going on.  In fact, three hours worth of dancing happened in these shoes:

Now, I love my 4-inch Jessica Simpson heels and all, but my feet were definitely not loving them by the end of the night.  And when we finally went to bed, the clock read near 2:00 a.m.  I honestly can’t tell you the last time Jonny or I went to sleep that late!  (We’re so exciting, I know.)  Well, all of that combined lead to a very much less productive Sunday than I had anticipated.

By the time I got moving yesterday, it was time to head to my girls’ soccer game.  To which they won 8 – 0.  :)  There were two very proud coaches on the sidelines.  Then, I came home and did a lot of food prep for this upcoming week.  I made a pound of pinto beans, two cups of brown rice, roasted an eggplant, and sauteed onion, carrots, red and green pepper, corn, and a jalapeno.  Bring it, veggies!

Best Body Bootcamp Update: My goals last week were to get in bed before 10 and lift weights 3 times.  Being in bed before 10 was not a problem (during the week), but sadly I lifted weights just twice.  I had good intentions of lifting today, but that didn’t happen.  So moving forward and staying positive, I am keeping my weight lifting goal the same because I will lift weights 3 different times.  My second goal is going to be to do three different types of cardio this week.  Sometimes I get stuck in a cardio rut and only hang out on the treadmill, elliptical, or stairmill (whichever kick I’m on).  I would also like to go for a swim this week, so hopefully that will count as one of my cardio sessions.  I’m also excited to try more of Tina’s workouts that she designed specifically for bootcamp!

I’m already off to a good start because I woke up, got to the gym, and pumped some iron.  For those of you participating in the bootcamp, today I did Workout B – the ladder rep workout.  A ladder rep workout means that for each exercise, you start by completing X number of reps (in my case 5), resting for 10 – 20 seconds, then doing 6 reps, and repeating the process until you get to your given number (in my case 10).  I had never done a ladder rep workout before, but I found it pretty challenging.  As my working muscles began to get sore during the first few sets, I had to lift longer (more reps) for the remaining sets.  I rounded out my workout by run/walking 2 miles on the treadmill: 1 minute walking, 2 minutes running, repeat.

How was your weekend?  Were you productive on Sunday?

  1. Happy Monday!! I started breaking in (and practicing walking in) some crazy high heels this weekend too – must have been something in the water! I think I’m going to get some drugstore insoles to make them a little more comfortable for the long haul.

    I had a lazy, wonderful weekend – no plans, just did what I wanted when I wanted. It was awesome!!
