The arm workout that made my arms stop working

But first…guess who is home!!!!!!

My Dad has been away on business for the past six months and we’re so happy he’s back. He was my first (and still one of my favorite) running buddy so I’m hoping I can get a bunch of runs in with him before I move.

Anywho….back to this arm workout. I did a ‘Powertone’ class at the fitness center yesterday and the instructor was a beast. He mainly concentrated on the arms and barely gave us any breaks between sets. Needless to say my arms weren’t working properly when I got back to my desk which caused me to spill some of my salad and balsamic dressing in my lap. Thank goodness my coworker had a Tide stain stick. I think I need to start wearing a bib!

If only my workout just consisted of drinking wine…

Today I went out with my friend Jeanette and did a difficult 5.6 miles. We were both exhausted so it was harder than usual! I’m glad I got it done though because it was a nice day and the endorphins are always a good thing!

Word.

In other news, packing at the Nagel household has begun.  Andrew takes packing to the extreme way too early and we currently don’t have a table to eat dinner on.  Based on the fact that I have a tendency to spill things on myself (see above) I don’t know how good of an idea this is.  We’re going down to North Carolina this weekend to get the keys to our new apartments and take some stuff down so I packed up some clothes and various other items that will fit in my car.

Those are just the winter clothes…

These boots are made for walkin’

 

Since I’ve spent the last couple of hours packing I should probably get some studying in.  I’m going to try to convince myself to head to the fitness center and ride the exercise bike while I study, but we’ll see if that actually happens.

Hope you’re all having a happy hump dayyyy!

What type of exercise classes do you usually take? I love Body Pump and other toning classes.  Plus Zumba (love love love love!)

Are you organized when you move, or are you more of a ‘throw things into a random box and figure it out later’ type of person?
