Even though it is a freezing Friday, this post is all about Fitness Friday, so I'll get to it:
I started off this week by working out with a girlfriend at a nearby park. We ran hills, did lunges up hill (omg), walked at least a mile and ran suicides across a football field (who did we think we were?).
Then the "Texas blizzard of 2011" hit us, so Tuesday I did nothing but stay indoors under warm blankets. Fail. Wednesday I bundled up and walked to my apartment gym and got a good session of cardio and weights in. Last night I was going to do the same, but on my walk to pay my rent, I slipped and fell pretty bad on solid ice. No gym after that, I was pouting and was sore from the fall. Fail X 2. This afternoon I'm going to my apartment gym to do cardio and weights again so that I will at least meet my goal of 3 days in one week.
As far as my diet goes I've done good this week watching calories. I haven't been drinking as much water as I should or taking my multi-vitamin every day, but hey ... one step at a time. The scale has dropped a few pounds so far, so something is working.
I've been using random travel carry-ons for my gym bag, but I decided if I'm going to get serious about getting fit, I need a serious gym bag that is both functional and somewhat stylish.
I started my gym bag research the old fashion way: by Googling "cheap gym bag for women", and one of the results was from Overstock.com. I picked out a couple that I liked around a $30 price point, but eventually decided on one with my Alma mater's logo embroidered on it. A few clicks later, my new gym bag was ordered. Here is what it looks like (They have 25 schools to choose from all priced differently. Click here to see if they have your school):
