Happy Friday y’all!!
How was your week? My week was a bit crazy (but what’s new Nellie?!). We are still under a pile of snow from the snowmageddon last weekend but I’m happy to say I was able to get all my workouts in this week!!
Getting to and from work was not fun in the least. The trains were extra crowded and extra delayed. There were piles and puddles of melted snow so high it didn’t matter what you had on your feet–you were going to be gross.
Since I didn’t want to deal with any of that I decided to workout at home with my BowFlex SelectTech 552 Dumbbells. I did tons of squats, lunges, shoulder presses etc while watching my favorite show, Love and Hip Hop. That show is so entertaining that it totally distracts me from how hard I’m working out!
I can’t talk much about Tuesday’s workout at BFX Studios because I plan to do a full review next week but it was a spin/Bootcamp fusion class that pretty much knocked my socks off!
I finally ran. You would think that I wasn’t running a 10k and Half Marathon back to back for the Glass Slipper Challenge in 3 weeks! It’s okay though, since this is a low pressure super chill race I plan to take it as easy as I did last year. That is the only way to have any fun! I want ALL the photo opps!!
Also I can’t wait to run through the castle again. I have a feeling that there will be all the tears and I’m ready for it!
Anywho, I ran 4 strong miles and this weekend I have 12 on deck. Let’s do it!!
Thursday: Rest Day
Today I have a date with Flywheel! It’s been awhile since I’ve been so I’m excited for a little Friday evening burn. Which pretty much never happens so I’m excited!
Wins of the week
- I will work out 5 times this week!
- I am on the Huffington Post again! This time for my Body Shaming article
- I celebrated a friend’s wedding last night and spent 3 hours laughing hysterically with my new coworkers. I still miss my old family but my new family is pretty darn cool too.
- I’m finally comfortable at work. 6 months in. I thought it would never come but I’m ok–and a little bit stronger than I thought.
p.s. Did you guys see that the AirBNB Brooklyn Half sold out in 52 minutes?! Bruh. 50,000+ people run this race! It’s the LARGEST half marathon in the world! 52 minutes. Last year was 6 hours. I don’t even think the RunDisney Races sell out that fast!

I get it though. It was one of the best and most emotional races I have ever run.
