The Wurst: Life Lately

by Heidi on September 29, 2014

So I have to step back and apologize for officially being a horrible blogger.

Life, man.

It started with the week of our anniversary – cramming two weeks of work into five days that didn’t have nearly enough hours and a lot of other crap going on. Thankfully we did get a date night and got to enjoy dinner and some live music out at Lures in Crownsville. Highly recommend!

Anniversary weekend was followed by a week long conference in Boston for work. During which I had the best of intentions to blog and workout but neither really happened (at all) but I did tweet a bunch and because the convention center where the conference was, I did manage to get in about 15,000+ steps each day. BALLER.

{with JL & Liz – two my awesome co-workers at Inbound Rocks with Janelle Monae}

We got home late Thursday night and I had an early (crappy) train ride to New York City, a mediocre lunch with my dad in Penn Station, followed by a m’eh train ride up to Brewster to meet Adam and my sister in law for a weekend at Hunter Mountain where we celebrated my brother in law and his fiancee at a joint bachelor/bachelorette party weekend. Little man stayed with the grandparents – all parties had a great weekend. Adam and I did in the mountains and my in-laws loved their time with the little guy.

Highlight of the weekend? This view.

And these donuts. Homemade, old fashioned cake donuts with your choice of toppings.

This past week was supposed to be clean eating but ended up being…not so clean. That’s what happens when you have events going on every. freakin’. night. Ugh ugh ugh. Life needs to slow the eff down.

I did start out days with some Shakeology (YUM) once I got back and one day even got some juicing in. I need to do that more often.

This week will be a bit more tame. But I’m restarting all of my goals. The tri is off the books, but I am getting PiYo certified next weekend (exciting!). And, and, I’m actually going to menu plan. I haven’t done that in 3 weeks. No wonder I’m so off my friggen a-game.

I digress. October intentions/goals coming up Wednesday. If I want to hold other people accountable, I need to hold myself accountable first. Not just with my fitness goals but also my blogging goals.

This week’s workouts…

Monday - PiYo
Tuesday - Run
Wednesday - PiYo
Thursday – Run
Friday – Rest
Saturday – Dirty Damsel 5k
Sunday – PiYo Certification

Who’s going to be my October accounta-billy-buddy. I just made that word up. What of it? But really, who wants to hold me accountable? (and vice versa! I want to help you reach YOUR goals!)

Five years

September 12, 2014

Really hard to believe that it’s been five years since we said “I do” on that magic day in DC. In that five years we have… …Moved half way up the Eastern Seaboard…and back again, building a home in Annapolis, MD. …Spent six months apart thanks to the US Army …Ran 2+ races together… And […]

Fashionable Friday

September 5, 2014

So i don’t often do “style” posts – read…by often I mean never. But I’ve been following so many fashion bloggers lately trying to get some inspiration for my fall “style” that I’m going to try to throw my hat in the ring to do the every-so-often style post. Mind you, I will not be […]

Friday Five: Fall Goals

August 22, 2014

This Friday we’re talking goals. I usually set my goals seasonally, and tend to keep the SMART acronym in mind – mainly realistic, attainable, and timely. Though strategic by thinking of my overall long term goals – lose 20 lbs, and be healthy. So my fall goals – I had to really be realistic – […]

Less Guilt More Living

August 19, 2014

Saturday, my committee for Junior League hosted our first of two open houses, and Sunday I hosted a lovely baby sprinkle for […]

Friday Five: Favorite Race Memories

August 8, 2014

This week’s Friday Five link up is about race memories. I keep thinking back to what made racing so excited as I struggle with my relationship with running these days. I’ve had some epic races – and while I’ll probably never be running a sub 8 minute mile or qualifying for the Boston marathon, some […]

A Weight Watchers Recipe Win

August 7, 2014

Last week, I had  a girls night in with Liz which involved some delicious enchilladas, some wine and a lot of girl talk. I had originally suggested a weight watchers recipe that I saw on the weight watchers website but she wasn’t feeling pasta so we substituted and the enchilladas were a huge hit! However, […]
