So, my new puppy was born last week on my mom's birthday, which is so amazing!!! Here are a few pictures of my soon to be puppy. Not sure exactly what puppy I will pick but it is on of the blue merle males. Ragtime Aussie's is the breeder I am going through and Summer is amazing and such a great dog owner I am so glad that I found her!
I can't wait to bring my puppy home in January :) 

First Workout back : )

Today was my first workout since being sick for a week and a half!!!! It felt AMAZING! I love my trainer Brad he is great, he knows how to get me to do things I would never do in my own workouts but isn't that drill sergeant type. I can't stand trainers that treat you like a prisoner, that is the last way to get me to do something but with Brad I always want to push myself and train harder! Today we did lots of lunges, press and curl lunges and lots and lots of TRX (one of my favorite ways to workout). After I could barley move lol, it was just what I needed to stay motivated, after a training session I am always revved up and ready to work harder than ever!

Sticking to your workout

Today I was on twitter and Mens Health had a link posted for an interesting article "20 ways to stick to your workout". This was a great article, that I defiantly recommend reading. I find that the day's I have planned to workout with my trainer are days that I never miss, unless I am horribly ill. The article also talks about ways to keep you motivated, like doing your least favorite workout first so you have it out of the way and can do the workouts you do really enjoy.

Since Wednesday I have not worked, this has been the longest I haven't worked out in 3 months and its killing me. The first two days were because of my mom's birthday and being busy with family stuff in Seattle, but now I am sick and spending my time in bed. Last night I was pretty desperate for a workout I attempted to do some crunches. Let me tell you, a head cold and sore throat make it almost impossible to do crunches lol. I am hoping tomorrow morning I am feeling better so I can get a run in before work!

So I decided to get into the halloween spirt by entering into my local Lululemon costume contest. I went with an 80's vibe and decided on an 80's fitness instructor, complete with leg warmers and wrist bands! Apparently no one else was in the spirt as I was the only contestant, all good for me though, I won the prize!!! I got to pick out any tank that I wanted, It literally took me 40 minutes of trying on new styles and color finally I came to this conclusion!

I picked the Power Dance Tank in Lavender/ lilac space dye. I love this tank, I only recently started shopping a lululemon and love most of their stuff and this tank is great. I can wear it to the gym, around shopping or on other errands with out looking like a total gym rat. I worked out with my trainer today and this tank performed marvelously, I did size down to a 6 in this tank and in every other tank I am an 8. The fit was great in the shoulders, I had tons of movement and the strap didn't dig in at all. I can wear this tank all day long!
