Clothing obsession Part 1

I am pretty sure this will be a multi-part event that goes on for the rest of my life so I might as well have it in separate parts. I originally started blogging about clothes and clothes alone. I would scout out the newest designs by Calvin and Ralph and come at peeps with my fab ideas. Well that didn’t seem to go over as well as I was hoping so I will have to give this up in doses. Lately I have been obsessed with dresses over tights. I look at them on other girls and want to be her. Well no more! I bought one sweater dress a few weeks ago and plan to go shopping this weekend for nothing that “works” with jeans. Why is it that we get so engulfed in jeans? I read a fashion book that stated ” a true fashionista does not wear jeans, Ever!” I wanted to take this to heart but it is so hard. I have now decided that I am not going to buy any more jeans until next season. (That would be Winter again actually if you are into fashion and know that the next season comes out at the beginning of the last hehe Fashion Joke) I hereby state that I will buy skirts dresses and wear them more often. I mean why not show off this rocking bod that I work so hard for? I know I should be showing you guys pictures of awesome clothing but I unfortunately do not have the time to do it. So hey why don’t you pick out all the awesome things you want me to wear and post them here?? Sound good? Have a great weekend! Toodles.

Feel the Burn

So maybe I didn’t have the weights like this lovely lady. But on Wedneday night at training we did squats and lunges after our run. Granted I understand that after not working out for 5 consecutive days I was due to be a little sore but my thighs are burning right now! I have a hard time sitting down to use the bathroom right now, and if you know me this has been a painful day. I pushed myself and went and did my swim last night. I felt amazing during the swim but apparently my muscles are worse for the ware. I missed my spin class this morning at 5:45am because I was up most of the night due to my poor sick boyfriend. I spent most of the wee hours of the night wishing I could just sleep through the coughing but to no avail. Unfortunately there is not a spin class tonight, and I do not feel like swimming again. I am debating what kind of workout I will do this evening to keep up with my triathlon training for Lavaman in Hawaii. I am more than excited about this event!

Today has been a good day even thought I have been tired most of the day. I am thinking I will go to the gym and just do a little elliptical to stretch out my muscles, we will see how far I get once I get home. Maybe after a nap I will have more energy….Not likely hehe. Well have a great weekend everyone!

It’s beginning to look a lot like christmas!

Hey everyone, It is the first of the month and I have decided to try writing once a day even if I don’t have fun pictures or other interesting things to show you guys. I can at least tell you about all the amazingness!

Tonight we get our Christmas tree. Delivered by my good Friend Emily who is selling them as a fundraiser for her IronMan Triathlon! What a beast! I am very excited to decorate our tree and get Chrismas going without a bang. It was a rough Thanksgiving emotionally, but the holidays bring more than Joy sometimes and this is something we have to live with. I am going to stay strong through this month and not let my emotions get the better of me.

I also have triathlon training tonight, I haven’t seen the team in so long it feels like and I truly miss them. I can’t wait to run swim and bike with everyone. This winter has been the hardest training season yet! Granted it is only my second but going swimming when it is only 45 degrees out is a little hard. Also it gets dark so early. I have to do my training at the gym, which is ok, I just gotta get my butt down there.

**November Recap**

This last month I completed my  first Half Marathon and 10k Race. Funny how those things work out. I am so proud of myself for making it this far in my fitness journey.

Thanksgiving was a little intense but Training is in full swing now!
