Dwight is right ladies- lifting won’t make you huge…

As a huge fan of the office, I couldn’t go another minute without posting Dwight’s huge face on my health blog!

Lifting weights is NOT going to make you huge ladies. This is a common misconception that I get asked about quite often. If you’re on a bad diet, and you just can’t seem to keep your hands off Mr. Ben and Mr. Jerry (if you know what I mean *ehem ICECREAM ehem**.

If you balance out a healthy diet (with protein/fruits/veggies) with a solid workout plan, you’ll EARN your way to the body of your dreams! Lifting weights is NOT going to make you big, but lifting weights without training might. If you’re really worries about this, please message me and we’ll go over your exercise routine together. A good cardio mix with strengthening exercises and weights will actually lean you out.

Whats the worst that can happen? You might just end up with a fabulously it body. Oops 🙂

The Color Run- 5K!

20130608_080828

Running in The Color Run has been on my bucket list for 3 years! The moment I saw gifs of Pinks, Purples, Yellows and Blue neon colors flying through the air- I knew I HAD to be a part of it!

Since my boyfriend Bryan and I (he’s a Marine) have began to love working out and maintain our health lives together, we decided to run it as a team! There is not better feeling then getting fit and having the one you love right beside you encouraging you to push yourself even harder. When the Color Run finally came to San Diego, we both bought our running bibs, and counted down the days 🙂

Our team name was of course “The Fitspirational Blonde” (which was on the back of our custom made T-Shirts.)

The Front of our shirts said “Running towards our Happily Ever After!”

Details:

  • Distance- 5k (3.1 miles)
  • Location- Down Town San Diego (the streets were completely blocked off for the color runners, it was so surreal)
  • Time- 7am!
  • Cost- $50 per person, and color packets were an additional $3 per packet.

As you can see, we had THE TIME OF OUR LIVES. It was Bryan and I’s first ever run, and it was a perfect run to begin with. Not too long, not too expensive, and a good time was had by all. I definitely recommend you trying the color run when it comes to your city. Challenge yourself. Get out of your comfort zone and try something new. You’re not going to get any more in shape by watching races on TV, get up and participate!
