….and a Happy New Year!
Hey friends and a very happy-welcome-to-2014!
My 2014 started here:
“You shall not pass!”
Seeing as how I am still off running (i’m getting stir crazy here!) I have become well acquainted with the ARC Trainer. The Lord of the Rings series were on tv all day on Wednesday so Joe and I enjoyed watching it throughout the day.
We made sure to swing by Kaladi Brothers, a local roaster and coffee shop, because every January 1st they give all the proceeds they make on that day to a local charity:
Not only were they giving all of their proceeds to Children’s Lunchbox, all of the baristas volunteer their time and work for free. This year they raised over $14,000 dollars for Children’s Lunchbox which was matched by another company for a donation of about $28,000!! Pretty cool, huh?
Do you see that blanket in the above picture?
Yeah, that would be the blanket under which I spent most of the rest of January 1st in a coma. I’m not sure if I was recharging from the marathon lack of sleep from the past few weeks or pre-charging for the year to come. Either way I think I spent more time asleep that I did awake on New Years Day.
As is tradition in our family (and many others, I know) we had black eyed peas with our New Years Day dinner:
That’s a bowl of good luck right there!
Workouts this week have been really good. I have been spending a lot of time doing a variety cardio with some fun circuits thrown in. Here is a workout that my Cross Training Boot Camp did on Thursday and the workout that I ended up doing later in the day:
That’s a lot of burpees and box jumps, by the way!
For the most part, I have a pretty relaxed weekend ahead of me which I am very much looking forward to. I hope you guys have the chance to rest and relax as well!
