Another Rainy Day!

The picture above is something I bought myself tonight. It's called a Street Strider. It's basically an Eliptical Bike! You can take it outside and have a great time on it or sit it on the stationary system to make it an indoor eliptical! Awesome, huh? It comes in 5 different colors: blue, red, white, black, and raspberry. Of course, I chose raspberry! I had it shipped home and can't wait to get there to use it! Check out this website on it: https://www.streetstrider.com/How-to-use-StreetStrider/

Also, pictured is Dirk ... a great guy from Colorado. Him and his best friend are married to twins and have a race car that they race all over the US. They are so darn funny and good ol' boys! Love 'em!

Yup, it's still raining in this dessert area! And they said it only rained like 10 days a year! I think we'll hit it this week then! LOL :) So, my roomie and I didn't go on the hike AGAIN today. Instead we stayed in the gym from 8:15 until 10:30 this morning working out ... We did over an hour on the treadmill and then worked on the weight machines the remainder of the time. I really wanted to hike ... tomorrow, I'm going for it!!!

I had a kick butt day in my afternoon classes! I took 2 Cardio Intervals classes and kicked my own butt, but then took Sharon's Total Toning Class and she kicked my butt!!! She didn't seem to think I had a heavy enough weight bar (12 lbs) so she doubled it to two weight bars (24 lbs). I'm the only female she did that to. She also did the same thing to Eric Chopin. I think she likes picking on me! :)

I did go get a Pedicure tonight after dinner. I needed those toe nails clipped so that I could be more comfy in my hiking shoes. I highly recommend that you DON'T get a pedicure like 2 months before you come here as you need to build up your calouses on your feet instead of scraping them off. Also, bring a pair of toe nail clippers! Another lesson learned while here!

Today's schedule:

6:00 am Hardcore or Open Gym (I chose Hardcore Abs)
7:00 am BREAKFAST (Peach Muffin & Fruit Dish)
8:00 am Leave for Hikes (I stayed in the gym)
11:15 am Yoga Stretch
12:30 am LUNCH (Tomato Soup & Lettuce Wraps)
1:00 pm Calorie Challenge
1:45 pm Open Gym
2:30 pm Cardio Intervals
3:30 pm Total Toning
4:30 pm Pool (but I took a 2nd Cardio Intervals Class)
5:30 pm DINNER (Shepherd's Pie & 2 Chocolate Covered Strawberries)
6:30 pm Relaxation Techniques (I didn't take this class)

More tomorrow ... :)


  1. Love the comment about pedicures. I have one scheduled for February 2nd, but don't go to FR until April 25th. that should be long enough! Glad your having such great success.

  2. THANK YOU for the comment about pedicures. I get one about once a month, so I will hold off in April and May!!
