Today is such a big day, and I have several things to tell you about!!
First…the winner of the The Women’s Health Big Book of Exercises: Four Weeks to a Leaner, Sexier, Healthier YOU and Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 Days DVD is…..drum roll…Amanda Tipton!!! Congrats Amanda!! You will love the book and DVD. They are among my favorites! Also, look for an email from me this afternoon!
Second, Jill Conyers will be guest hosting on Monday. Jill will be answering the questions about how to strength train and avoid injury for runners. Then, Jill has had also Graciously (note the capital “G”) offered to guest host again to answer the rest of the amazing questions everyone had. I loved all the questions everyone had, and so did Jill, so she is kindly hanging around to post again. I honestly cannot thank her enough for helping us beginning and experienced runners. I’m throwing myself in the beginner category, and everyone asked questions that I also had!
Third…It is a birthday day in our house!!! Little Tilly is turning 1 year old today!!! Tilly is our sweetheart that we fostered with RAGOM, and then we ended up adopting her. I would like to make a quick plea for other dogs out there in need of a home…If you are ever looking to get a dog, please check out your local shelter, or go online and look up “dog rescue groups”. RAGOM is a rescue group that I volunteer with, and they, like other similar groups, place dogs in “foster homes” until they find their “forever home” and are adopted. Our lab, Lady, is also a rescue dog from Florida, and she is amazing. So, instead of going to a pet store (which gets its puppies from horrible puppy mills) look into saving a wonderful puppy or dog at your local shelter or from your local rescue group.
Back to the birthday girl…My goal was to make frosty paws and dog treats on Wednesday and have a write up for you with the recipes, but since we didn’t have any water, and I had to spend my day melting snow for water, I didn’t get a chance to make her birthday treats. So, we are doing the doggie birthday baking on Saturday. Tilly is still getting more stuffed toys to destroy, and all 3 dogs are getting Kongs filled with peanut butter and carrots! Happy Birthday Tilly!!!
And speaking of water….We now have running water. Never in my life did I think I would be so happy to flush a toilet regularly! No more melting snow on the stove for me!!! Well, at least not until this happens again.
It is workout time! Here is the treadmill workout I did the other day at the gym. Time flew by with this workout since I was so busy keeping and eye on my time and changing speeds. I didn’t add an incline for this workout, but feel free to add a hill or two in there for yours! Hope you enjoy it, and remember to stretch!
