Getting back

I'm finally getting my motivation back for workouts. I really struggled this past summer trying to stay in shape. Unfortunately the result was that my lack of workouts lead to tight fitting pants. Now that fall is upon us I've found motivation to sweat it out. I was desperate to get any sort of workout in so I decided to try the Zumba class at my gym (Lifetime Fitness). I love it! I can't remember the last time that I was so excited to go to the gym. The class is on both Monday and Thursday night but I prefer the Monday night instructor. Plus the class is at 8:15 so I have plenty of time to walk the dog and eat dinner before going to class. On Thursday's the class is at 7 which is a little harder to make. Second, I've been trying to hit the trails on the weekend with BR. It always helps to have a running partner to keep you motivated. The other thing that I've recently found and became addicted to is Exercise TV. I have AT&T U-verse and exercise-tv is on demand. There is no excuse to not be able to squeeze in one of the 10-minute workouts.

The last hurrahs of summer

Last night, FB & I meet up with the boat trip group. We are renting a houseboat in Kentucky in mid-September with 10 other people. It will be the last vacation of the summer, even though in my mind summer is over after Labor Day. I've only previously met 3 of the 10, but it seems like a good mix.

This weekend I'm heading to Chicago to spend the weekend here:http://www.chicagogaelicpark.org/. It's the annual Gaelic Football Finals and I'm really looking forward to it. I think we have a good team this year and a good chance of making it all the way.

Also starting this weekend....College Football! A true sign that summer is over. I sure love the fall, but dread the cold that is soon to come!

Ithaca, Part III

Slowly trying to get caught up here. It's been a busy week! On my last day in Ithaca we started off with a walk in the woods with Jada.
Then we went into Ithaca and walked around the commons before lunch at the Moosewood. We shared an awesome brownie with ice cream for dessert. Then we headed up to Cornell and walked around the campus a bit.
