Love Life; Love You

7:00 AM: 3.1-Mile Run – COMPLETED

12:00 PM: Flywheel Sports Spinning – COMPLETED

Good news is, last night, I was able to get a run in. I was going to run with Tamar but I had to drop off something for P and then he decided to play ball by his job so Lili and I went straight to the park where I pushed her in the jogger and we finished up at the playground. While the park is beautiful, it’s not really shaded.

We Run + We Play + Papa plays Ball = Fit Fam

We were at the park for about an hour and a half before we finally decided to head home. I knew it wasn’t going to be a quick ride either (half an hour away). So we were home by 8:15. P showered, we ate dinner and then I gave Lili a bath and then she went down to sleep. I ended up hanging out with P in his man-cave (and on the couch). I even got a good therapy session in (my husband is the best therapist even with the conflict of interest — sometimes I tell him I need a therapy session and it’s about him — he tries not to be biased! I guess that’s what I get for marrying someone that has his Masters in Psychology).

It was refreshing talking to him and it made me realize that I am a good person. I am a good friend. I don’t need negative people in my life. For example, I recently got this back-handed compliment from someone and I just smiled and nodded and tried to make that person feel better not realizing that in the end, she was making me feel bad about myself. Sometimes I am too nice.

negative people

As always, his advice was so positive and meaningful and it made me a much stronger person. Seriously, this is why I married the man. He’s smart, funny, loves me unconditionally and that really cancels out how lazy he is… HAHAH.

Preach on, Oprah.

It was a great end to the perfect evening we had. Of course, I woke up exhausted, but I was in the mood to run, so I ran and packed for spin not knowing if I was definitely going to make it. I’m glad I did. I had a different instructor and her music was on point. It reminded me of Chelsea’s playlist.

Ru + Spin = HUNGER

And because I had a hard workout, I got a treat for myself…

Bag full of Sweet Potato Fries.

Oh, you only live once… HAHA

What’s your favorite cheat snack? Do you ALWAYS eat healthy post-workout?

Do you sometimes feel skeptical about trying out new instructors?

Happy Tuesday!!!

  1. Look at you spinning and running today! I have to teach tonight!! But I will probably be staying off of the bike and doing squats while I yell commandments cuz I have to teach early tomorrow morning too. Crazy crazy!

    That is so sweet the hubs was able to be a listening ear. My BF is really good for that too.

    My favorite cheat snack. Geez I don’t know…does WINE count? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • I was seriously thinking of you today in spin and thinking that maybe I should try to teach spin. I’ll need your help and advice on this if I do decide to pursue it. What route to take, etc.

      Yes, it’s one thing that my husband is good at — and we actually talked about him getting his second Masters in Counseling. He’d be a great counselor. Great advice…

      OH, wine totally counts. I can’t wait to drink my MIL’s sangria like cray-cray.

      Have a great time teaching tonight. I don’t know where you get your after-work energy from.

  2. Look at you with the double workouts! Awesome! Those fries are well deserved! ๐Ÿ™‚

    My husband provides good therapy too. Funny how men have the ability to look at things from a different perspective and make you look at things in a different light. I have the same problem sometimes…too nice and the inability to say no (a bad combo!)

    I definitely don’t always eat healthy post-workout. Hey, you’re right – you only live once!

    • Erin, I think that since my running has slowed me down, I have to find something else that will help me sweat even more — I’d definitely run longer if I had the time in the morning, unfortunately, I don’t. But hopefully I can run longer this coming weekend!!!!

      I think we need to think more like men. We women over analyze everything. For example, the “back-handed” compliment that I received, I swear, I thought about it for an hour before saying something and even said, “maybe I’m just being too sensitive”, “maybe I just don’t know how to take a compliment” but my husband (and another girlfriend) said, “Nope. She’s making excuses and she is hating on you!” I could have had my answer in 1 minute rather than hours of thinking about it. LOL ๐Ÿ™‚

      I hope training is going well!!! I keep checking for an UPDATED!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. LOVE sweet potato fries!! What a great cheat! My cheat is sweets… I have a sweet tooth and I’ll have a few m and ms or something small to get over it, but it’s a little cheat, so it’s ok, right? ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Oh gosh… Usually my big cheat is PIZZA and ICE-CREAM (they go hand in hand). When I’m not pregnant, sometimes a cold beer is good with that pizza. People are shocked that I can eat 5+ big slices, especially my OB/GYN. She’s like, “WHERE DO YOU FIT IT???” What was funny was one time, she announced to her entire staff that I ate five slices of pizza followed by 2 chocolate donuts. I ended up throwing it all up because I was pregnant with Lili and she HATED pizza. Funny thing is, she hates it now too. What kid hates pizza???? Ugh.

      • haha!!! great stories! Avery isn’t fold of pizza either. well, he isn’t fond of much actually. very picky! I can’t believe you can eat that much!!! but then again, when i workout, man am i hungry! so since you workout so much, makes sense that your body wants/needs the fuel.
