So this creeper was totally staring at me in the gym yesterday. Sorry… had to get that off my chest.
I was thinking it’s because he was shocked at how much weight I was putting up. Then I was thinking, maybe it’s because I’m just so darn cute in my Nike Tempo shorts (sarcasm here…. I love ‘em, but tempo shorts flatter NO ONE). Then I realized I was doing overhead triceps extensions but haven’t shaved my armpits since Saturday.
Yup… let’s just go with D, all of the above.
I have a fun weekend planned, and I can’t wait to get it started. It’s five o’clock somewhere, right? I first have a girls’ night out on the town with two of my buddies. This girl is even coming in from out of town for it.
I promise I hadn’t had a beer yet!
Then tomorrow, I get to have fun in the name of charity. You may have noticed, I’ve been volunteering more with Habitat for Humanity. This usually involves me climbing on roofs, using nail guns, or just getting all-out dirty. Well, they finally have an event that doesn’t require back-breaking labor. WhooHoo! The best part? It involves beeeeeer!
Kevin and I are working the upcoming bar crawl in Charlotte (NoDa) this Saturday. It starts at Growler’s and ends at a local brewery, Heist Brewing. This is a great way for participants and myself to support local beer AND local Habitat for Humanity.
I don’t normally post on the blog what I’m up to until after I do it (creeper awareness), but I hope maybe this will get some of you CLT folks to come out and have some fun in the name of charity.

Despite the deceiving title, this post is in no way workout or Nike related. In fact, I haven’t gotten my sweat on much lately. I strained my hip carrying furniture up the stairs on Tuesday night, which allowed me to do a little upper-body lifting and light yoga but not much else.
After not being able to run again until Saturday (a short test run), I can tell you this – if you’re considering carrying heavy furniture upstairs by yourself… just don’t do it. Now that the negatives are out of the way, let’s get to what you should do instead.
If you’re not working out in the morning and have time to cook a hot breakfast, just do it. (Bonus points for freshly brewed coffee.)
If you’re picking up your mom from the airport kind of late, and you want to get a couple beers despite the time, just do it. (We definitely stayed up until 3 a.m. chatting, but it was worth it.)
If you have time to give one of your best friends a massage, just do it. (On Saturday, my house guests and I got massages of our own during our day at the spa. That’s girl time at its best!)
If you see a Groupon or other deal for a BYOB painting class, just do it. We had a blast at Wine & Design!
If one of your house guests feels sickly Sunday morning, and you want to make her breakfast in bed, just do it. These are Katie’s apple pancakes, and they were a-friggin-mazing.
If you want to turn on beast mode after feeling slack about your recent workouts, just do it. Today I’m hitting the gym with a whole new routine, so check back throughout the week if you want more info on that.
- Do you love massages as much as I do?
- Did you have a fun weekend too?
