Naughty or NICE? November
My theme for the month is have I been “Naughty or NICE” today?
I have to say I was pretty nice today…I spent quite some time doing several nice things for others today~
#1- My son wanted to bring his Football Championship medal to school today…he looked all over for it, but to no avail..I found it for him and then he lost it again prior to getting to school; He was VERY SAD! 🙁  When I pulled into the garage- I found it on the floor of the garage.  SO guess what I did?  the NICE thing: drove back to school and brought it to him :)
#2- I poured some quality time into several of my friends lives…that’s always nice!
#3- I read several books to my DD’s
#4- I was nice to myself and got in my workout late– I got started at about 9:15 tonight.

So…today I was nice, so SANTA can put me on his good girl list- whoohoo!!

Here is a quick run down of my workout:
Warm up- r-bike 11mins!! this is my first real warm up in about 8 weeks!! YAY!

Lower back extensions paired with assisted pull ups – 3 sets
Lat pulls paired with bicep curls- 3 sets
Leg extensions paired with bicep curls – 2 sets
Shoulder press paired with knee ups on roman chair- 3 sets
Seated rows paired with situps/oblique twist at end- 2 sets

That was it!
Now I am off to bed~
Hope you had a NICE day!

I DECLARE- November “I am Thankful” month!! Entry for November 2, 2006

As the highly successful October–“I am proud Month” is now OVER–I think it would be fun to continue on with the tradition into November.

With Thanksgiving just around the corner I am declaring that NOVEMBER is “I am Thankful month” –So be sure to start off your daily posts with a reason you are thankful!!

I am thankful for my brothers and my sissy

Here is a pic of us all together about 2 years ago-

in the back row you see my brothers Matthew (today he is 17!!), James (he’s about 22 now) and David (2 years older than me so 33 now)–he is holding his little girl…then next to me is my sissy Jeanette(she is now 24)

On tap for me today is the TRACK again…today it is much nicer weather here, so I will take my 3 little girlies with me. I am sure that will be an adventure!

Wish me luck!!!

Here is my Track Report:
It was a crazy time at the track, but MAN what a perfect day for it–sunny 60 degrees–perfect!
here is the low down on how it went
Warm up 800m
First 3 400m- 69 seconds with 4 min recovery
4th- 71 seconds–this one almost killed me! so I had a longer recovery of 8 mins then did
5th- 70 secs…would have been 69 but Tia was in the way so I had to yell at her TWICE to move–poor thing!

We went to the park afterwards and I am still dying an hour afterwards…so time to rest, and refuel and think about what I am gonna do in the gym tomorrow and Saturday!

It was a GREAT experience to be running 400 repeats again…I have a huge love hate relationship with them…they are killers, but UBER EFFECTIVE!!
