I'm Giving Up

Hump Day already? 
I don't hate it!

 In addition to today being the halfway point to the weekend it is also the first day of Lent.
I do not consider myself a religious person whatsoever but I think about giving something up every year for Lent, then never follow through.

Last year I decided to give up Starbucks and lasted 8 days.

This year I am going to really challenge myself and give up going to Target.
Those of you who know me or have watched my vlogs know that this is in fact a difficult task.
I love that store.
There are many times I go to Target just to kill time and wander around, it usually leads to unnecessary spending so I am hoping this will help my wallet a bit.

I can't tell you how happy I am to have a new schedule! Yesterday I was able to wake up at my leisure, have coffee then hit the gym for an hour. I tackled 40 minutes of cardio, split between the elliptical and treadmill....BORING. 
I loathe cardio machines, I don't know how people use them.
Then I took a 20 minute ab class before heading home. 

The weather was beautiful yesterday, almost spring-like so I took advantage of that and my extra time to walk the boys.

They were so happy to get out and stretch their legs.

This morning I had every intention of waking up for brutal camp but something about knowing I don't have to workout at 5 am made me sleep in. Instead I am taking kickboxing at 8 then showering at the gym, which is something I have never done before and it kind of freaks me out.

Do any of you shower at the gym?


  1. I shower at my box ALL the time -- I don't mind it. Maybe because I know everyone there vs a normal gym. Have a great day lady :)

  2. Yes! Finally someone writes about porno.
    My blog ; porno

  3. I have never showered at the gym, usually because my workouts are always at the end of the day when I'm going home, but they do seriously skeeve me out...I equate them to feeling like I was going to catch something everytime I took a shower in the "community" shower in my dorm during college.

    And good luck with giving up Target. I honestly don't think I could do it!

  4. I don't care showering at the gym - not my favorite, but I just do it fast :)

  5. Giving up Target??!!! Oh man girl, that's a good one.. not one I think I could ever do though, Ha Ha!

  6. I DID TOO!!!!
    years ago
    never looked back.
    I now feel rich :)

    I shower at my gym -- it's not my favorite but I'd definitely do it to extend my workout and/or make my life easier. Just wear flip flops and don't sit on anything naked!
