New Gym Membership + Friday Favorites

Under Armour sent me a box of goodies to help promote the What's Beautiful campaign I am working on with FitFluential.

it was like Christmas in May!

Receiving some UA gear reminded me of my two challenges - to train for a triathalon and to try a new type of fitness each week.  As soon as I opened the package I put the shoes and a headband on, latched Ina in her carseat, and drove to our local community center.

Ina and I did a lap around the almost-mile track to test out the new kicks. (Walking verdict is good - the real test will be running!)

Afterwards I went inside and signed us up for a family gym membership!  This gym has a 1/12 of a mile track on which I used to run 5 miles a day.  Yes, that is 60 laps!  It has been so long since I have been there and things have changed so much.  

This gym has a lap pool and plenty of group exercise classes / weird looking machines for me to try to reach my new goals  

Some other Friday favorites: 

-Thanks to all who gave me some ant advice.  My friend Kim gave me some Terro (which many of you recommended):

Dan, Abby, and I have been watching the ants flock to the stuff, knowing they are taking the poison back to their nest to die.  I feel slightly evil, knowing they are headed to their demise. 

- Doing the dishes isn't too bad when this is your view.

Dan loves putting Ina in a sitting position and watching her try with all her might to stay there.  Eventually she tumbles over and he yells, "baby down!"

- We have baby bunnies in our front yard

This one greets me when I go to run in the morning

Eats

Green monster smoothie for breakfast - I can't wait until I can make a double batch and share with Ina!

Lunch - scrambled eggs with toast and carrots

Dinner - baked chicken nuggets, coleslaw, and corn on the cob.  Ina had cereal.

Have a great weekend!  I am off to try something new - swimming!
