After spending the last few days resting up and healing from whatever sickness it was that knocked me flat on my butt, I was ready to hit the gym this morning! It’s amazing how excited I am to get my sweat on after a few days of feeling crappy. It appears that I really am addicted to my workouts. Hey, a girl’s got to have some addictions in life – right?
Today I decided to spend some quality time with my BFF, the elliptical — I put in 30 minutes while listening to my final module for IIN. (Side note: can we please talk about how crazy it is that my year at IIN is nearly over? Time seriously flew by!)

I then decided to kick my muscles into gear with 15 minutes of circuit training with my Jackie Warner DVD, plus one minute of plank. I’m generally in good shape and have been doing strength training for years, but if I take any time off from this DVD — even a week — I find that it kicks my butt once again as soon as I get back on the bandwagon. I love how hard I work with this, and I love how strong it makes me feel. Granted, it usually ends with me looking like this, but I figure that’s a good thing:
Aaaaaand, speaking of sweating…drum roll, please…I found out yesterday that I’m a newly-minted SweatPink ambassador! (*Insert happy dance here*)
As a woman who loves both fierce shoes and football, all the reasons I love SweatPink are summed up in their mission statement:
I mean, really: any place that combines sports and an ardent love of pink is a place I can roll with. (Case in point: I might be the only person alive to have simultaneously owned both a subscription to Sports Illustrated and a little pink iPod.) I’m so very excited to be part of this amazing community, and I can’t wait to get involved!
And on that note, I hope everyone has a fabulous Tuesday!
