Other forms of exercise other than running....(what? there are others!?)
This is what I wish I were doing right now:
Instead, I have been up and at em' since 6:30, but I have been *somewhat* productive and did my Jillian Michael's Yoga this morning. Downward Dog anyone? Speaking of dogs.....
I couldn't leave out Max-man.
I have been trying to ease my depression over my ankle injury by doing some cross training at the YMCA, thanks to my friend Phoenix who is letting me *borrow* her membership. Aka, I forced her to give me her card, put it on my keyring, and scan it when I go in and walk super fast by so they don't compare her picture to me and realize I am not her. Don't tell please--it will be our little secret!
So on my off-yoga days (okay so I am super exaggerating here-- I have only done the yoga like 3 times this week) I have been hitting the gym. I have been biking and doing the elliptical enjoying the splendid lifestyle of the Y membership that I have currently. Do a body pump class? Do a Boot camp? Don't mind if I do. Okay, well I haven't but I could if I wanted to (if my damn ankle was better....). I plan on swimming tomorrow which should be pretty entertaining and possibly a safety concern for those who may be around me. Where can I find some goggles? Would I look more like I knew what I was doing with goggles?? More of a professional swimmer, per se?
In the meantime, we are having our monthly "Chow Down Around Town" dinner tonight which basically means girls dinner at a new restaurant each month. It should be a blast and may help ease my depression over not being able to run and my fear that I may not be able to run in the half marathon at the end of April. Alcohol and gossip tends to do that (ease depression, that is).
I'm a 29 year old girl living in Birmingham, Alabama with my husband, our son Baylor, and our two dogs, Max and Gracie. Originally from Atlanta but was sucked into the slower paced lifestyle in Alabama. I work as a therapist with adolescents in a psychiatric hospital and love what I do. I feel like every year is better than the last and I want to make the most out of my life. Enjoy traveling, reading, running, and spending time with friends and family. Had our sweet baby April 2012 and am in love with him more each day!
