Missing The Gym

Sadly I have fallen back in love with the GYM! I so need to quit, but I do love a lot of the equipment that I don’t have at home. I am going to miss speed workouts on the treadmill!! Is that enough to pay $15 a month for???

While I was there this is what I did….

The Gym Circuit

  • 20 X Bicep Curls with alternating lunges-8-10 lbs
  • Bicep Curls Alone 1 minute nice and slow-8 lbs
  • 20 X Military Presses 10lbs
  • Lat Pull Down Machine- 50lbs set of 15
  • Triceps Shoulder Raises 10lns 20 on each arm
  • 50 Sumo Squats with 10 lbs weight
  • Side Lat Raises 15, started with 8lbs
  • Front Lat Raises 15 with 8lbs
  • 2 min sprints on “dread mill” at 7:15 mile pace
  • Repeat Circuit Above
  • 20 pushups on toes
  • 10 Tricep Pushups on Knees
  • 10 pushups on toes

AB Workout

  • 25 AB Legg Pull Ups on the machine (not sure what these are called)
  • My AB Workout
  • 25 AB Legg Pull Ups


I love how Tina has Cookie Friday, but I am not a huge fan of cookies. So I have decided to do SBUX Friday!!! Had their Reduced Fat Turkey Bacon Sandwiches + Tall Coffee.


I love coming in late on Friday’s, because I am so much more productive in the MORNING!!! I cleaned the kitchen, my car, caught up on emails, and managed to iron!!! I am thinking about working 10-6 this summer, what do you guys think??? I do love getting off at 4:30 though.

When I got to work it was already time for lunch. I started with some Lemon Mineral Water…

Alright friends more questions answered.

Q: Do you think you would ever go vegetarian??

I honestly think I could. I am not a huge meat eater, but I am not against it either. I think the hardest part for me would be when we go to other peoples house’s for dinner and they serve meat. I would hate to offend anyone and I don’t want people to go out of their way to cook something different for me. I also really love FISH!

Q: I just recently got into running (I just ran my first 1/2 marathon!), but I would like to find other runners in my area and meet people that like to run so I don’t have to do all the races I want to by myself. Any advice for finding local runners? I live in Miami.

What a great question! I went online and typed in local running groups with my city and found some great ones! I think that map my run site has some running boards too. I do know a great runner in Miami that has a blog. Her name is Amanda and her blog is called Runtothefinish. I am sure if you get in touch with her she will hook you up!

Q:What are your favorite staples that you always have in the pantry/fridge?

BEANS, black, garbanzo, kidney, pinto..I also always have vegetable stock, marinara sauce, bananas, Greek Yogurt, spinach, apples, cilantro(random I know), soy milk, and eggs on hand. These are things I have to weekly pick up!

Q: Hi Bobbi! What is your weight and height, and on average, how many calories do you consume a day?

I already answered the first part of the question, but not the second. I don’t really count calories, but I try and shoot for at least 2,000 every day. 400-500 in my main meals and 200-250 in my snacks! When I am training for a marathon it’s more like 2,500!

Q: How do you keep it all together? I have a job that requires I work 12 hours days, usually 6-7 days a week. I don’t have much time for mental breaks, let alone breaks to work out. Any advice?

Another great question! I have mention this so much on my blog and I will say it again it’s all about planning. I seriously would probably go crazy if I didn’t take time out on Sunday’s to plan out my week. I also think making sure my lunch is packed, my work-out clothes are out, my outfit for the week is ready, and dinner is prepped for the next day all before I go to bed really calms my nerves 🙂 and Hubby really balances me out!! GETTING UP EARLY is essential too, which mean an early bed time.

Q:What is your marathon PR and what was your time in Boston?  I’m training for my fourth Boston woohoo!

My PR is 3:21 at St.George Marathon it was my Boston qualifying time!

Q: What part of the country do you live in?  Your about page says small business owner, what is that business?  Do you enjoy writing on your blog?

I live on the West Coast! I do have a small business called a Need-A-Sitter, it’s a sitter referral service and it’s more like a personal thing for me. I really want families to be able to take a break and go out on dates once in awhile and have a trusting babysitter to watch their kids. So ya there it is.

Q: Where do you like to do your training runs?  Is there a favorite route that you have that you could share (anywhere between 3 and 10 miles)?  My neighborhood is getting boring and I’d love some new routes/ideas!  Thanks!

I like to Run in the City close by down the hill! I live in an area that is filled with HILLS so I run their once a week but try and get to the track at least once too. If this question is from someone near me send me an email and we will chat!
