Day 3, and I probably should act more like a grown-up

Happy Monday (or not?).  I started off this morning with a 40 minute run that turned more into a run/walk because my back is really hurting (ggrrr).  I ordered my new shoes yesterday, so I’m hoping they’ll come in sometime this week.  I also plan to buy a foam roller, because I needs it bad!! My muscles feel…

A look inside the North Carolina Nagel Apartment

Happy weekend!  Today is a rest day for me since my lower back has decided to start hurting…which I’m almost positive is from my extremely old running shoes (which I’m hoping to replace this weekend!!).  I haven’t run much this week but went on the elliptical instead.  I liked being able to watch Friends while…

25 Things About Me

Happy Hump Day…. woot wooooooot! (Sorry, that will never get old).  This week as been pretty productive in the Nagel household, and it’s only Wednesday! We got our North Carolina drivers licenses yesterday…well…a paper saying that we will be getting our actually drivers license in a few weeks.  Once we do that we’ll have to go to a…

A few things I’m going to miss about Maryland

Since I’m officially moved to North Carolina (as of yesterday), I thought I would list the things that I’m going to miss about good ol’ Maryland. 1. My family.       Is it normal for a 28-year-old to have a ‘I miss my Mommy’ moment a few hours after driving away from your parents house?! Having…

Moving madness

Oh hey! Remember me? Sorry for the lack of posting. My life lately has been somewhat crazy because it’s been looking like this: And this: But…it’s also included this fun stuff:   Our stuff (and Andrew) moved to North Carolina almost two weeks ago. Andrew drove down the night the movers showed up at our…

I kicked it.

Today is my Friday…woo hoo!! The work day felt longer than usual today…probably because I knew there was a three day weekend waiting for me once the day was over! Anywho, my exercise so far this week consisted mostly of classes, which the exception of a run on Monday. I took an X-fit class yesterday…

That time we drove to North Carolina and back in less than 48 hours

Hey y’all! I hope you’re having a good Sunday! This weekend has been jam packed with moving stuff for Andrew and I, so today will consist of studying my little heart out.  But at least I’ll have my hubby sitting across from me…also studying.  We’re such party animals…I can’t stand it! Since Friday was my…

This and That Thursday (i.e. a post with no pictures)

Hi Hi!  Today is my Friday since I have off on Friday even though it will be spent heading to North Carolina to finally see our new apartment.  The workday will hopefully go quickly (fingers crossed!) because I’ll need to head home and pack.  Andrew is making me ‘rough it’ and spend the night on…

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…

2.5 Hours

Happy Friday! So remember in the last post when I thought our AC was shut off by our energy company because we signed up for that rewards program. Well I was sort of right. The AC was shut off. But not by the energy company… but because it was broken. Like blowing hot air into our apartment…

I’m pretty sure I’m crazy…

because I ran 5.6 miles outside today with my coworkers…in over 90 degree heat.  I was beyond tired after it was all over, but I’m really glad I got the mileage in! Anywho…lately I’ve been cramming studying for my ACSM personal training certification in the hopes of getting it before I start school in August, along…
