What is your favorite cold weather meal?
Also yesterday I talked to a friend that I haven’t talked to you in a LONG time. It was my friend, Allena. She was the maid of honor in my wedding. I absolutely love her like a sister and even though we don’t talk nearly as much as we should I know that she would do ANYTHING for me if I ever needed her. She is one of those friends that has seen me through it all and I know that when push comes to shove she always has my back! Love you Allena!!
This morning has been awesome. No complaints. I ran 10 miles at 8:27 pace and then took an hour break to refuel with some food and coffee and then headed back in for an hour session of weight lifting with Keith. I will admit that having my husband train me is difficult. I tend to be very oversensitive when he critiques me. I have my fitness certification too so when he corrects my form I always feel like a loser! But I have to remember that I can not let that “perfection bug” win and Keith is just looking out for my safety!!
Is is hard for you to workout with your significant other?
I will be back later with the winner from the Perfect Food Bar give-a-way! I am already jealous of this lucky winner!! 🙂
