Cinco de Mayo and sore abs

Happy 5th of May! A big day in Mexico and for Americans who need an excuse to eat Mexican food and wear Sombraoros. As silly as that is, that is my excuse for celebrating tonight. I mean who doesn't like an excuse to eat chips and salsa?? I am excited!

Well, as I told you all, E and I started running and have decided that this time next year we are going to be running a half marathon. Well, if you know me, you know I don't really do things in moderation, so not only have we decided to get up at 5 am to run, we are starting to do P90X in the afternoons. I decided to see what it was all about yesterday and did Ab Ripper X. I will tell you that I stayed in the Child's Pose for about 45 minutes after the 15 minute ab workout was over. It was insane. I can't imagine what the rest of the workout is going to be like. But I guess having a great body (ha) is going to pay off. We have also decided to follow the suggested calorie and diet plan, so it is going to be a huge life committment! We will see how it goes. We have about 8 weeks til the wedding, so maybe there will be some significant changes before that! We will see!

Anyway, hope you all have a happy Wednesday! I am going to go try and recover from my iron abs and a run this morning! You will probably find me in the floor in a fetal position. Have a great day!
