WIAW: Fall Racing Season

Posted Aug 15 2012 7:45am

Know what’s funny about blogging? Especially when you blog the way you speak (like I do)? Eventually you have to write down all the things you say and find yourself googling hers vs her’s at 6:30am so you can appear to know proper grammar before the coffee kicks in.

Oh wait, it’s decaf.

WIAW- breakfast

Anyways, in case you are curious… yesterday’s breakfasts: his (the egg bagel sandwich), HERS (that’s right, no apostrophe and the egg scramble with pepper, onion and cheese) and wee one’s.

In other news, one nap yesterday was interesting. I dealt with quite a fussy baby, but she did sleep 12-2:30. She’s also cutting 3-4 teeth right now. I’m going to give it a solid effort of 3-4 days and see how we’re doing then.

WIAW- lunch

baby spinach, baby kale, green pepper, red onion, celery, brown rice, grape tomatoes, veggie avocado burger, hummus and balsamic

I didn’t wog yesterday because I was still so sore from Monday’s #bestbodybootcamp workout.

WIAW- guns

I sure love strength training when someone makes me do it. (Thanks, Tina ). Plus, I knew we’d be hitting up yoga in the afternoon. After snack time.


I love yoga and strength training because they mix things up and help me to feel stronger all over. Heck, even my toes feel strong after yoga.

WIAW- post yoga toes

Do anyone else’s veins pop out on their feet afterwards? Taking eagle into airplane into standing splits forces some serious ankle strength. I’m working on it.

WIAW- dinner

Burrito bowl featuring brown rice, taco slop , avocado, cilantro, sour cream and Texas Pete.

Anyway, I feel as though keeping my workouts varied leads to stronger wogs. And wogs, I’ve realized, are my true challenge. I’m not a natural runner. I work really, really hard at it.

WIAW- wog

Which is why I feel so proud when I accomplish a new distance, time or just finish a wog with a smile on my face. I like to be challenged, which is why I just signed up for my longest distance yet- a 10k!
