Cuteness overload

So I work at a University and finals start today. I’ve always loved finals week when I was a student because I was weird like that and I thought that only going to class 5 times that whole week was pretty awesome. But now that I’m not a student finals week is even better!

Theres so many de-stressing activities that are going on today. My favorite is called “Coffee and a Cuddle.” The Human Society is outside the Student Union offering students coffee and a chance to cuddle with the most adorable animals ever! Seriously, how could you not wanna cuddle with them!

Anyways, my bike ride to work kicked my butt more than I thought it would! Nothing like getting good and sweaty before you’ve even had your morning coffee 🙂

 

 

24.3/26.2

I’ve almost reached my goal of 26.2 miles for Boston for the Facebook group! Only 1.9 miles to go which unfortunately has to wait until Saturday. I have a rest day today and tomorrow I’m biking to work since my car unfortunately is being dumb.

I don’t know about anyone else but I love, love, love to ride my bike! Last summer I was sans car for about 6 months. I rode my bike everywhere in the Arizona heat and it was miserable but I got some killer legs out of the deal. Since getting my fancy new car my bike has been collecting dust since October. Time to dust her off!! Ready to ride 🙂

New Month’s New Goals

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with the first of the month. I love new beginnings and fresh starts and the chance to make a new goal. I hate shelling out nearly 1/3 of my monthly income for rent…..but a girls gotta live!

Anyways, all these other bloggers are setting so goals so might as well jump on the bandwagon:

1) Run 5 miles without stopping. My last post was about how I don’t really feel like I have anything to run for. Now I know, I want to be able to sign up to do a 10K on a whim and not have to train for 8 or 10 weeks to do it.

2) Try and cook 2 new recipes. I feel like I’m in a food rut. I read an article that said most people buy the same 130 food items over and over again. For me its peanut butter, veggie patties, yogurt, bananas, pistachios, and pasta. I feel like I eat these foods every day!

3) Do at least 1 ab and 1 arm workout per week. After complaining about trying to start strength training i finally just did it. Its only about 3 or 4 different exercises that I copied from watching people and it takes me about 7 minutes to complete but its something!

4) Start studying for my Certified Personal Trainer test. Yup, that’s right. I bit the bullet and ordered all the study materials. Maybe I’ll learn a thing or two and share it with you guys 🙂
