Back to reality!

Holy snow, and more snow, and more snow! It was a real “welcome back to reality” to shovel and shovel and more shoveling after being on the beach all weekend!

At least the city does look beautiful!
We were in Florida this past weekend for a dear friends Bachelorette and oh boy oh boy was it fun! Luckily the W hotel we stayed at offered some really amazing complimentary beach glasses, so we got to be a little “healthy” while having fun in the sun!

I took yoga one day, went on a long run one day and did beach bootcamp anger morning. Bootcamp on the beach was so hard, you really needed to work on your balance, and running in the sand is not joke! We spend most of the days with a cocktail in hand by the pool. Life is good!

The group of girls was such fun, the sun came out, and the cocktails were beyond yummy! Maybe too yummy as I felt like I had a 2 day hangover come Monday, but we only live once, and need to enjoy every once in awhile right. Monday was spend at the gym getting back on track, green smoothie drinking, and shoveling!

Reality and routine are nice but I am over shoveling! If your stuck inside today here are a few fun plank moves you can do to get a full body workout!
1. Plank hold
2. Plank mountian climbers
3. Plank pulses
4. Plank grasshoppers
5. Side plank hold right side
6. Plank supermans
7. Side plank hold left side
8. Plank with shoulder taps ( hold plank tap opposite hand to opposite shoulder).
9. Plank alternating leg lifts
10. Plank hold.
Do each for 25 seconds take as much needed rest between, repeat the cycle as many times as you want.
Bonus finish with 10 push ups…but! Lower down on the push up to the count of 3 and push up to the count of 4! It’s a killer! I love refueling wit CorePower, and in all this snow I always have a cold one on hand!

I know I post on my recovery and the importance of it but so is diet and protein! I am not a huge eggs fan but I am trying in 2015! I have made a compromise with egg whites, and using a thick veggie like broccoli! Perfect little recovery start to my Tuesday, new magazine, healthy breakfast and a coffee…always need my coffee! Today was a work from home day as the MBTA is closed, but I was out shoveling at 5 in the gym by 5:30 and teaching at 6:30….busy day and I need to fuel it right!

How fantastic is that? Can you relate or what! I love it ha, cracked me right up!

This video made me beyond proud to be a runner, to be running Boston again this year, and to get to share this day with these rockstars. I am not going to lie I teared up with pride watching this.

Do you want the marathon in person? On TV? Are you excitied for the 2015 Team USA field.

This post on 22 Annoying Things Runners Say also made me laugh! A few top picks for me that I 110% say/ do ALL.THE.TIME  are:
4. Flood your social media feed with pictures of our running watches.
6. Bring our running shoes on vacation.
16. Say things like, “I have to leave early; I’ve got a long run in the morning.”
20. Wear weird things like compression sleeves and hydration belts while we run.
22. Assume that everyone is as obsessed with running as we are.
Any relate to you? Ha I can relate to most!

What are your weekend Plans?

How is your 2015 going?
