It’s Summertime: Get Moving!

by Nicole on June 14, 2012

Morning! How are all of you doing? The sun is out today, which means I’m going to be making this post short so I can get outside for a run.

I’m planning on doing a 5k on Saturday morning with Danny, his aunt and his mother. I won’t be ashamed at all if they leave me in the dust. I am just hoping to finish and to have a good time. We’ll be down in Jersey this weekend for my friend Katie and Steve’s wedding. Another Providence College couple and I couldn’t be happier for them. :)

I usually would be doing a baby update post, but I don’t really have any changes from last week to this week. Same things going on over here. Still feeling good. Tired, but feeling good. I’m grateful every time I go for a run or workout and keep my body moving. Keeping up with exercise has helped keep me in a great mood and feel good about this pregnancy.

With summer basically here, I highly recommend you get outside and go for a walk, run or bike ride and get moving!

We all know exercise has amazing benefits, so what’s stopping you from actually getting out there and DOING IT? If you don’t take time each week to move, think about why you don’t. And don’t blame it on time! We have to MAKE time, it doesn’t just happen! :)

(thanks to Bex for this awesome image!!)

What’s your favorite form of exercising? Right now I’m loving running, walking and strength training.

Have a wonderful day! I’m going to try on my new Nike running tops I just bought for my expanding body and RUN!

When I finished this school year of teaching, I managed to really let my exercising slide. I was still exercising, but it was extremely sporadic. Since I have more time, I’m trying to work my way back up to having the motivation and being more consistent. I can’t use “too early” as an excuse to not getting it done!

My favorite form of exercising right now is climbing. It works so many muscles, especially your core, all at once. Every climb is a little puzzle with how to position your body and hold onto a hold. I love it! So much fun and I don’t feel like I’m working out. I love cardio, but weightlifting just isn’t for me. Climbing >> weightlifting!!

Yep, all good reasons! I do always feel better, more energized after a workout.

I used to just love cardio sweatfests, but lately I’ve been really enjoying both yoga and strength training. Switching it up!

I am very much fine today. The day is so hot. I love running but I don’t know if I could run 5k.

I absolutely LOVE to lift. Cardio takes more of an effort for me, but I get it done. Doing something fun, like spinning, outdoor cycling, hiking or kayaking makes it more enjoyable for me. :)
