Fun Topic

Today's Workout

3.01 miles in 29:37
45 Minutes Elliptical

I decided I need at least 1 day a week totally dedicated to cardio. From now on Tuesday will be my cardio day. My workout schedule will now looka  little like this:

Monday-Rest or light cardio/strength day
Tuesday-Run and elliptical/stair climber/bike day
Wednesday-Cardio and strength day
Thursday-Run and strength day
Saturday-Long run and lots of stretching/yoga day
Sunday-Cardio and strength day

So, I will be strength training about 3-4 days a week. Which is pretty good for me. Doing (most of) the LiveFit Training program really made me fall in love with the weight room. My arms are starting to look so good. I even see a hint of a muscle coming through. I will take a photo and show y'all sometime soon. I am pretty impressed.

Fun Topic of the Day

I am not engaged, nor do I know when I will get engaged. Chad and I have been together for over 5 years now(living together for about 4 and a 1/2 years) and the question comes up often. It is mostly said in 2 ways:

"When are you going to make an honest woman out of her?"


"When are you two FINALLY going to get married?"

The questions do not bother me. I am in no rush to run down the aisle. Somedays I want to get engaged, like now! Somedays I just think, 'eh, it'll happen whenever'! Either way, I want my 1st marriage to be my only marriage.

One thing I didn't realize about relationships until I met Chad was that they are work. From day 1 to day 5 billion they never stop being work. I love being with Chad. Even in the bad times, he is my best friend/partner in crime/life partner. I love coming home to him at night and telling him about my day and hearing about his. After 5 years, I still get butterflies. I am always excited to see him no matter how long we have been apart.

I don't know when we will get engaged and I don't want to know until the moment that it happens. However, I do know that one day I will be getting married in Las Vegas!

And I am 100% happy with that!!

Are you in a relationship? If so, how long were you together before you got engaged?


  1. I need to get into stength training! Good for you!

  2. That is a fun topic. Cute to hear where you are at in your relationship and your honesty about understanding the work that relationships take! I got out of a 9-year on-and-off relationship awhile ago so I've been enjoying being single and rediscovering me ;o)

  3. Girl,
    You are working hard!! GREAT JOB!!! I was in a relationship with my hubby for 3 years! We were engaged for 6 months and have been married for 6 years this Nov!!! I love him!! In fact, I might have just recently gotten his name tattooed on my wrist in Arabic :) Yes, I am that girl. I thought, since he sacrificed his life for our country as an Arabic translator, I want him to know that I honor and respect him and his service to our country!! Cool...huh :)
