Wednesday already…

Hello blogging friends…

So the long weekend came to an end and everyone is back in the rat race ;-).

I had a mini vacation for a week – but have to admit it was anything but a time for rest! We went to Cape Town for a few days for the wedding of my beautiful friends Landi & Roy. I was a bridesmaid and was proud to be part of such a beautiful meaningful day! The venue was in Yzerfontein named Strandkombuis. It was a perfect beach wedding and it turned out to be the day with perfect weather conditions. The day before was everything but perfect weather wise, but deep down in my heart I knew the weather on the wedding day will turn out to be perfect!

Then on the NOT SO COOL NOTE: I lost my purse or it got stolen 😦 what a bummer to stop all my cards etc.  Also no gym for the week and let me tell you I felt like crap after the week although I did manage to go for 1 run hehe, and to crown it all off I got a phone call from USN for the next Expresso shoot within a week…This Friday 4th of May! Feeling bloated, irritated with myself for not being able to workout and I feel few kg heavier after the “mini vacation”. But in good spirit I’m back in the gym and loving every minute of it!

Tonight is Zumba whoop whoop always the best high intensity cardio workout. I love the sweat and the burn is just a bonus.

What do you have planned for the day?

Well have a super fantastic HuMp DaY – Stay healthy & fit…

For those doing the USN 12 Week Challenge – DON’T give in or don’t give up. You have what it takes to be transformed from inside and out. It will get hard at times but that is when you must keep your eyes focused on your goal!

Good luck to those entering dehydration phase keep it up almost there…

The food was absolutely amazing not even to mention the chocolate wedding cake ;-)…How was your weekend?

Ok so back to now…Do you have anything planned for the Easter Weekend? I don’t have anything planned and think I will just relax not doing much.

Tonight is Zumba and I’m super excited – This is always the highlight of my cardio in the week. I have a super calorie burn,  feel sexy while shaking it and just overall loving the workout.

What is your favorite workout? I love doing weights with a combination of cardio. I neglected my running for a while now and I’m actually looking forward to my next run. I think I must enter for a race then I know I have to train ;-).

I love my running shoes that I bought a while back – The Nike LunarEclipse 2 – I must honestly say since I started running with them I feel a difference in my feet / shins. This may sound crazy but I have a training shoe for most activities :-).

For action Netball I use a court2 shoe. For general gym I use my Nike Airmax / Adidas and for my running I wear my Nike Lunars

“The rule of thumb is that if you do an activity three or more times a week, you need a sports specific shoe,” says Carol Frey, MD.

Word of advice: If you are looking to buy new shoes (especially for the first time), try it on, take a quick jog and see how it feels even if it is in a store. This is what I did the last time around. I may have looked like an idiot but that might be so – but I now have the correct shoes. My previous shoes purchased almost cost me R2000 and it ended up being to big and only for me to find out after my first training session with it – What a disappointment! The shop assistant assured me that those specific Nike Airmax only comes in half sizes! What a lie…So please make sure the shop assistant have the knowledge and question them if you are unsure.

You don’t want to end up with the incorrect training shoe.

Well this is it for today…Have a super Wednesday!
