my fit fam.

Tomorrow I begin my summer nutrition course. Although I’m slightly excited to get back into the “groove” of books and school, I’m apprehensive. Apprehensive because I don’t think I’ve been able to find a good balance of school, work, and personal life without feeling like I’m lacking in one or more area at any given time. I used to be very diligent in writing everything down. I mean, EVERYTHING! Plans, budgets, workouts, schedules, ideas, to-dos, etc. I’m sure if I got back into creating my list, I would have an easier time transitioning back into school mode again without feeling overwhelmed, rushed, or flaky.

This weekend I made it out to Trailhead at the Trinity River. I honestly had no idea what I was getting myself into. After my last post, Carrie texted me because she was just as excited as I was. Our friend Kristin “KK” was in town from Oklahoma for the weekend, so we all ventured down to Trailhead.

As we showed up, they were just starting to lay mats down for the class. Carrie was hesitant, thinking we were heading to a yoga class. Which would probably wouldn’t be a bad idea for me at this point. My butt still hurts!

For the next 45 minutes we endured series of squats, leg lifts, crunches, Spiderman pushups, side planks, planks, jumping jacks, and to top it off, sprints!!!

The look on KK’s face was priceless at the mention of sprints. All in all, we had a good time. I’m so proud of my girls. They rocked it. I have a lot of work to catch up on.

We survived and lived to tell about it. We even got to enjoy the afternoon on the lake! Yeah, we workout!

I plan on returning next week for a HIIT class. Anyone wanna join?

Have you ever gone to free classes in your area? Did you like it? Would you return?

friendly fort worth.

One of the “selling points” for me returning to Fort Worth has always been the Trinity Trail. I love that there are ALWAYS people out riding, running, and walking out on the Trail. I remember riding my bike out on the trail one chilly January morning before moving back home. I was almost in tears of the beauty, life, and peacefulness of being on the Trail.

Fast forward a year later, and my efforts of making the Trail a ritual have been below average. I’m slightly embarrassed.

Today, I decided to embark on a 3-mile run.

Since returning from my Mexican vacation, I have been fighting a nasty infection that had me down with a fever and chills. A shot, potent antibiotic, and lots of water and naps later, I’m finally beginning to feel a little better.

So, while I’ve been away crying and moaning about been tired, sick, busy, and lazy. Here’s what I’ve been missing:

Exhibit A: Trailhead. Obviously, I’ve been hiding under a rock of self-pity. This is the coolest spot, EVER. Proceed to Exhibit B.

Exhibit B: Free classes. EVERY SATURDAY. Okay, free? I bet it’s lame. Take a looksy at Exhibit C.

Exhibit C: HIIT, group rides, Barre, etc. Is this real life?

We know where I will be on Saturday!! I may drag some of my friends with me as well.

While I was hiding under my rock, I missed all the native Texas wildflowers blooming. Simply gorg.

I even received a complement from a guy riding a B-Cycle on my color choice.

I love Fort Worth!
