Winter Boot Shopping and Pilates

Thanks again for all your support with the hair! I love the cut and am so glad I went through with it (I can be quite the chicken!). Thank you, thank you - you guys rock (and crack me UP)!!

Backing up....Thursday was a fabulously Unproductive day! I just worked, watched my shows during lunch, worked more and took Reuben for a little walk! I got to hang out with my mom which was super fun, and I dusted off the old Winsor Pilates abs and did that. It’s Saturday. I’m still sore. Love it. I didn’t do any cardio though – oops. I’m definitely going to be behind this week but that’s okay! I’ve been feeling a little sore behind my knee – I looked it up and have no idea what it is, but it hurts less today (Saturday) so that’s good! Anywho, pretty unremarkable day in terms of health and fitness haha! I ended up at 1,871 calories, 287 carbs, 38 fat grams and 87 protein grams. Yes,… too high for a weekday. Again. I will say TOM arrived. LAME!!! Here’s what I ate. Lots of stuff – eek!

Friday was one of those fabulously productive days! I woke up as if I were going to work, but lounged around until Austin left. Then I had cereal, watched bad TV and got ready for the gym! The housekeepers came at 10 so I headed out then and did the following:

2 mile treadmill walk (4 mph)

1 mile treadmill run (6.3 – 7.3 mph)

Bench dips (triceps) alternated with lateral raises (shoulders)

Kick backs (triceps) alternated with “the cheerleader” (shoulders)

And this leg workout (same as last week!)


Afterwards I got my eyebrows waxed, raced home, had lunch, packed up and went to get my haircut. Had SO much fun at the salon visiting with Kelly, and Monica was getting her color done so we got to visit!! Then I went to Trader Joe’s, Barnes & Noble (for book club book), and Bed/Bath and Beyond (for hair moisture towel). Then it was time for DSW where I had SO much luck! I ended up leaving with 3 pairs of boots (below) – great visit in the store where customers were all sharing information and we were all talking to each other/giving advice – good times!

Blowfish Holdem - only $40!

Madden Girl Mambo slouch in black - only $50! Love that you can make them knee high or midcalf - just tie it higher or lower!

Sam and Libby Peyton - only $50


Here they are at my house - i'm SO excited. You guys - flat boots? Genius! They're so comfortable!

Then I headed to Region’s where my friend Lauren was working so we visited through the window and I showed her all of my boots! Haha Then I raced home, made meals, showed Austin my hair (he loved!) then headed to AU. We had a drink at Teresa/Forrest’s then headed out to meet Monica, Lauren, Andy, Laura Anne, Andrew, etc. (the Atlanta crew) and Lindsey/Josh in town from Savannah! We had so much fun and I enjoyed my vodka sodas with lots of limes – yum!! I ended up at 2,011 calories, 204 carbs, 42 fat grams and 103 protein grams. Here’s what I ate.

Now it’s Saturday and I’m off to shower to tailgate – woo! Austin’s rushing me but hopefully I’ll get to read more blogs tonight – if not I’ll have LOTS of catch up for tomorrow!

Quick Questions:

What's your favorite work out video?

Are you buying boots this year? If so, what kind?! I'm in love with the flat slouchy suede!

I have that same winsor pilates DVD! It's tough for being only 20 minutes!!

I love your boots, esp. the gray ones! Are they comfy too?

I have the same Winsor Pilates abs DVD. I haven't done it in ages... I think I should look for it and do it!

I don't do a lot of DVDs, but lately I have been doing one of the 30 Day Shred workouts whenever I need to get in a quick workout in at home.

Love the boots; I really need to get some flat boots. The boots I have are not comfortable at all and leave me with a weird pain in my right foot...

Enjoy your weekend! :)

CUTE HAIRCUT! It looks so good on you! I am going to have to find me a pair of flat boots - I am all about the comfort!

Mica said...

Ooh, I like the boots a lot!

And Mari Winsor kicks my butt! My running buddy in college and I would always do it in the dorms and scream at her smiling face.

All the boots look so comfy and perfect for fall and winter! I need to get some flat boots. Was going to buy just another pair of black flats, but that is stupid with rainy weather. Boots are the way to go!
Didn't realize you have started running--that is AWESOME!

Your boots are so you. You have that cute personality to back them up :)

I LOVE Cathe Friedrich DVDs. I am a master at step aerobics + she doesn't lift "girly" weights ;) Her ab dvds are KILLER!
