Races, Vlogs and YOU


Lots of exciting things happening here in sweaty land, so lets not waste any time::



1.Wednesday night at PT I was given the OK to slowly ease back in my routine.
It was as if the heavens opened up and angels started singing.
To be honest I am not feeling 100% yet, but this weekend I am going to take interval training[one of my favorite classes at my gym] and see how I feel. The class is broken up into cardio and weight blocks, and I know if I don't feel like I can handle a move, I can modify it or worst case scenario...leave.


2. I signed up for 2 5k races in October:
The first one is Saturday 10/21 held right in town and it supports the MPS society 



The second is Sunday 10/28 and supports the Seatuck Environmental society.
I signed up for this race last year, and it would have been my first 5k however that was the one and only weekend it snowed on Long Island and I bailed.


This year I'm running it with my girls and we're doing it in costumes so NO excuses, sun/rain/snow/hungover we're doing it, together.

3.  Vlogtober. A bunch of FitFluential ambassadors are participating in this. It's the same as Vlogust, vlogging everyday of the month. I want to know if you think I should do it again, and if I do, what would you like to see videos of?

4. I am making apple chips this weekend in the dehydrator! Very exciting, I know. My mom brought home too many apples and since we are the only two in the house who eat them they'll go bad before we are able to finish them, so chips it is!
**If you have any tips/recipes on how to make them please send them my way and I'll give you a shout out when I post about them :) **


5. LAST BUT NOT LEAST. I want to feature YOU on here.
 Do you have a weight loss or fitness journey you would like to share? By reading this blog you know I am a firm believer of never giving up, no matter what we just keep sweating. This is your chance to tell your story and inspire/motivate others.  Whether you're just starting out, just reached your goal, etc.  I want to know about it.  This will only work if you participate.
 So please send me your stories and pictures to justkeepsweating@gmail.com and we can get the ball rolling.
I really want to make this happen, so lets do this!

Happy Friday Sweaties!

Two 5ks in one month? Very nice! Especially admire your attitude about the one in costumes haha! I hope no one is hungover for that one, damn that would be rough! Hehehe.

Amber @ ExSoyCise said...

Wahoo congrats on getting back into your workouts, I know how frustrating that is! The Owl Prowl sounds like a blast! I can't wait to see pictures from that! Vlogtober is a must! I'm going to join in the fun too. I can't wait to see everyone's vlogs! I'm a little nervous, but I know it will be fun :) I just sent you my weight loss journey story! I love hearing inspiring stories and seeing everyone's before and after photos! The picture you posted on instagram looked awesome. You are rocking it girly!

Thank you! I am so happy to be getting back into the "sweat" of things

Running On Candy said...

I did the Owl Prowl last year and it was actually a perfect running day - I did run the day before in the crazy ice storm too but the owl one was great. It is a nice course!

PavementRunner said...

Are you cleared to run? PLEASE, PLEASE be careful. Take it easy. No shame in walking some of it OR all of it. I walk when I run.

Also, we are going to need to see the costume(s).

Love that you are racing! One day we will race together! I am doing some virtual runs where i will actually just walk and do it inside since it is insanely cold here. OF COURSE you should vlog - I will send some topics this week and blog about them as well...I hope you like! I am happy you are cleared to start easing into exercise but I also wanted to share the same concern as Brian - and please be careful!!!!!!

Vlogging every day! That sounds ambitious. My thoughts are if you truly have the time and the content...go for it!

Congrats on your races. I'm considering signing up for one in Oct and another in Nov. I haven't done a 5k since June so I'm a little worried about training for it! Wish me luck...

Melissa said...

So this comment probably has nothing to do with your post...but I wanted to stop by and leave you some well-deserved love. Thank you so very much for all of your help promoting my post from Friday. I can't thank you enough for doing that for me and especially for Kristen and Andy. I'm fairly positive it helped with their donations. <3 I owe you. Big time. If you ever need anything, you know where to find me. <3

Miz said...

How were the apple chips??

Carlyn Giuriceo said...

.........they never happened, huge fail haha

Carlyn Giuriceo said...

xoxoxoxo

Carlyn Giuriceo said...

With vlogging I just tend to do my own thing, ramble/whatever it ends up being more fun then I expected

Carlyn Giuriceo said...

YES we WILL race together one day!! I am being careful I promise xoxoxxo

Carlyn Giuriceo said...

I promise you I will be careful, but only because you said PLEASE x2 ;)

Carlyn Giuriceo said...

Really? I am such a baby when it comes to running in cold/crazy weather ESP because I worked out outside in the ice storm the day before haha
