BOO!

Happy Halloween!!

Oh yes, another October 31. Troy and Steve are out doing their trick or treating. They ride throughout the area on the four wheeler, Troy getting all of the candy that he can. He just thinks it is a great deal: FREE CANDY! What could be better for a 10 year old?

It's 23F with a cold blustery 40 mph wind; windchill of 5 so I don't thing they will be out too long. Just long enough for Troy to fill his goody sac.

I am so sore. I lifted 8 different leg exercises today; 4-6 sets each with reps of 12-15; that's higher than what I am used to. My trainer is mixing it up and boy can I feel it Legs are toast. I am lifting 6x a week, going on week 2. Sunday is a day off: cardio only. Ha! I'm doing cardio bursts inbetween my sets and my Topaz runs as additional cardio. Trying to burn off the fat and feed the muscle. We'll see how this experiment works.

I'm eating clean as can be, as usual. Only difference really is the oats for the AM meal..then eating 5-6 small meals a day, usually totaling 1400-1600 calories a day. Higher than what I'm accustomed, but I'm ok with it for now.

Today and tomorrow I am at the gym at 4 AM as I can't fit in the evening Mom duties and run and lifting in one night. I was shocked to see 3 others at the gym at that ungodly hour.

Stay warm and have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

Yeah, mom duties do get in the way sometimes! Hee.

Are you lifting all over 6x a week or different parts of the body on different days?

Are you still coming to Grapevine in a few weeks?

Julie, you are crazy...and very inspiring! Especially with clean eating - something I don't make a choice to do, lazy as an excuse. Come over, stay next to me, set an example:)

I wish I was a bit better about "eating clean" I don't know how you do it!

Hi Susan, I am lifting different body parts; this week I am lifting each body part 2x. Usually each session is 45 minutes; 1:20 with the additional cardio mixed within.

NO, I will not be going to Grapevine afterall. My sister in law and her hubby and coming from CA to have an early Christmas with us. I haven't seen them in 2 years and could no way say 'oh, I have a i little race I'd like to run instead of having Christmas with you' So I'll be home. Guess I wrapped up my running season with Ed FItz 100K.

Thank you for offering to pick me up in TX and hang out with me. We'll do it for sure in the future!
