After my workout on Friday - only the elliptical machine, which felt like a nice break because I didn't have to do weights - I headed back to Minnesota for what turned out to be a lot of things! It is kind of crazy how much one person, who really just likes to sit on her couch, can get done when she has so limited time!
I had a wedding Saturday night for a couple of friends I met at my favorite Eagan bar. It was beautiful and lovely. They are so cute together. Shout out to Jessica & Adam! They also had some of the best dancers, ever, invited to the dance. It was fantastic! I had plenty of waters and diet cokes, and remained completely entertained!
Sunday my aunts Rhonda and Karlene, along with my sister Wendy & I, went to do a lit drop for my cousin Kory's campaign. He is running for re-election as State Representative of district 26A (if you live in Owatonna or Waseca - VOTE FOR HIM! =)). Lit dropping basically results in walking for 900 miles, or what seemed like it to my fatigued body, and leaving a sheet of info about the candidate at each home in your designated area. After a mild snaffu on the first packet (no one read the instructions, and we dropped at some houses we weren't supposed to) we got the remaining 7 packets done in no time. My feet were a bit sore, but it was nice to get out and enjoy the beautiful fall day - and get in some exercise.
I decided I deserved the day off from exercise today. I hurt. I went from 4-5 (or sometimes less) a week just doing the elliptical, with maybe one session with YC to 4 days of lifting & cardio, one day of cardio, one day of bootcamp, one day of lots of walking. Seven days in a row for an out-of-shape, still very overweight girl proved to be too much. I just couldn't want to do it today, and I am more than OK with that. It is allowing me to get started on my new knitting project - a sweater to wear to Christmas!
For anyone in, or around Owatonna - check out Molly's classes! They are at "Dynamic Dance", which is the old Jill Hoggard Dance Studio downtown. Molly Titchenal is on Facebook - go be her friend, and go to her classes!
