March has been great for so many reasons!

[9] at least I maintained balance with a ride at The Handle Bar in Harvard Sq.

and [10] …we’re in JAPAN NOW.  Be sure to check in on the instagrams that didn’t make it here!

What was your favorite part of March?

Weekend Vlog #15!

Is this a milestone?  Maybe a mini milestone.  Please subscribe to see all the videos I filmed during this weekend vlog!

As you can see from this video, I made it to spin class both Tuesday and Friday last week!  Have I retired from running for the season?  Ugh, I hope not.  As we slide into less daylight and warmth, everything seems to get harder.

How’s everyone else holding up?

Weekend Vlog & Fitness Log

See what I did there?  Enjoy the (long!) vlog in which I shopped a lot at Alex & Ani, Sephora, and Barnes & Noble, ate at Tiffani Faison’s Sweet Cheeks Q, and celebrated my brother’s birthday!

And here’s how the week at the gym went:

  • Monday | Hard day.  Decided to avoid running, boo.
  • Tuesday | Instead of running, I took my very first spinning class!  Honestly, I’ve been afraid of this for so long but I bit the bullet and ended up totally loving it!  I’m going back for another today… perhaps as you’re reading this!
  • Wednesday | 1.5 miles
  • Thursday | 1.5 miles
  • Friday | Lazy day.  No running.
  • Saturday | 1.5 miles
  • Sunday | 1 mile.  Guess that’s a Sunday thing now.

So, no great distances this week but I went to the gym 5 out of 7 days and hey, that’s not too shabby!  The worst part of this is the days I didn’t go to the gym were days I simply didn’t feel like it.  Here, I think I could’ve done better.  This is not always the case (and spoiler alert: not the case this week) but when it is, I should be pushing myself a little more.

This week’s goal: no excuses.  No “I don’t feel like it” or lazy days.  Let’s see how I do!
