Good morning lovelies. Happy Saturday!
I got back from an early morning bootcamp sesh today and suddenly felt like all was right in the world.

A good workout can do that to you, you know? That’s what I love about morning workouts. I feel energized and ready to start my day. The family is in town. It’s a perfect 70 degrees. What more could I ask for?

If you haven’t entered my 100 likes Facebook giveaway get on it. I’m giving away Yurbuds, a Nike+iPod sensor, a Color Me Rad race entry and more!
I’ll be logging off the technology to spend time with my family tomorrow so Happy Easter in advance. Have a great weekend!

Ah! I’m so excited for this.

Like I promised I’m having a big giveaway to celebrate. It’s the giveaway of giveaways. Get excited.

OK. You ready? Lets get to it.

So what’s up for grabs?

I decided I’d share some of my favorite products with you lovely readers. These are some of the things that have made my running journey easier. Hopefully they’ll do the same for you or push you to start your own running journey.

I’m giving away:

1 tube of Nuun in tangerine lime flavor each tube has 15 tablets. It’s like Gatorade, but full of fizzy deliciousness and only seven calories.
1 package of Honey Stinger Organic Energy Chews in fruit smoothie flavor These are my favorite for races.
2 Premier Protein bar in double chocolate crunch and chocolate peanut butter
1 packet of CLICK espresso protein drink in vanilla latte It’s a protein drink but it tastes like coffee. What could be more awesome than that?

That’s all for the food stuffs BUT I’ve got some awesome things you don’t put in your mouth. Well, I guess you could but they wouldn’t taste very good.

1 stick of Body Glide for her Because no one likes bloody nipples.
1 Perfect Sense running headlight from Tarjay Make sure to take someone with you still. Safety first!

A Nike+iPod sensor I stick this in my Lunar Glides to track my mileage.

Forte Fitness bootcamp (60 min.)

Yesterday, I started the Forte Fitness 21-day belly blast challenge. It’s a bootcamp/meal plan that you follow for three weeks with “guaranteed” results.

It was a rough wakeup.

I got up at 5 to make it to bootcamp early enough to get measurements done, but I forgot to let anyone know I was going at 6 a.m. instead of 7 p.m. as I had originally planned so there was no one there to take them. Boo. :(

My fault, I know.

I got a good workout in. I tried to run but it wasn’t happening. The instructor worked with me on my minor hamstring pull (self-diagnosed).

I wasn’t really sweating but that’s because there was a lot I couldn’t do. It’s feeling better today so Wednesday’s workout should be better.

I’ve failed on the meal plan but that’s a story for another day.

After bootcamp I went home and changed. Then I commited the biggest native Floridian mistake ever.


I went to a theme park during Spring Break.

Why? I don’t know. It was crazypants crowded.

I’m not sure where all of the people were because the waits weren’t too bad but there was a 15-minute line to get into the bathrooms in the parking lot and then another 15-minute line to get into CityWalk– and that’s before we even made it to the actual park.

We all had annual passes so we walked right in without making yet another line.









It was fun. I enjoyed the family time. It’s one of the things I’ll miss most about moving.

The day ended with cousin night at the movies downtown and a walk along Lake Eola.


A perfect Monday.

Are you on Spring Break? What are your family plans?
