Day in the Life!

Helloooooo Wednesday!ย Today I’ve got a new vlog for you – a day in the life video from yesterday!

I’ve decided I’m going to do Vlogmas this year – it’s a YouTube thing where you vlog every day or every other day leading up to Christmas/the end of December. I haven’t decided which schedule I’m going to try to keep up with, but I do have a few fun things planned for December including:

  • Meeting up with Megan and Ali for Best Damn Race Cape Coral
  • Spending a week in NYC
  • Running the Jingle Bell Jog
  • Christmas!
  • New Years!
  • Training for my half marathon PR in February
  • Plank a day challenge

Hopefully I can keep things interesting for you ๐Ÿ™‚ .

I think I mentioned it the other day, but this is a down week for me training wise. I’m letting myself rest up and getting my mind right for the start of my next training cycle which will begin this coming Monday!

Last week I tried Pilates for the first time and I’ll be going to another class today. I’m not yet sure how long I’m going to continue with it. I don’t find it to be equal or better than weight lifting,ย and my schedule is way too full to keep up with running 30+ miles per week, lifting twice a week and then adding Pilates on top. For right now it’s something different and interesting though.

I don’t think I’ve mentioned it yet, but Adam and I are heading out of town this weekend for a little pre-holiday fun! We’re heading over to the west coast of Florida for a couple of days.

Speaking of Adam, guess what tomorrow is? Our 11 year anniversary! I’m so lucky that I’ve been able to spend the last eleven yearsย with the person whoย was literally made for me. It’s pretty incredible that out of the billions of people on the planet we were able to find each other. I don’t thinkย I believe in the concept of soul mates, but if there is such a thing he’s definitely mine! <3

I’m looking forward to this weekend with Adam and to eventually kicking off Vlogmas!

Have you ever taken a Pilates class? Like/Dislike?
What type of fitness classes do you like to take?

    I’m so jealous that you get to have Sweet Tomatoes. There aren’t any in Michigan, so I eat there whenever I am in FL. Also I need to get over to Target and pick up some new holiday decor. So cute.

    Congratulations to you and Adam! 11 years is awesome!

      Thanks Heather!

      Yeah, I love Sweet Tomatoes! Adam doesn’t like it so for a long time I didn’t go, but now that my mom lives down here I have a ST buddy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    “Treat yourself Tuesday”? I could so totally get into that! Congrats to Adam and you on 11 years. That is awesome! I just had my 23rd wedding anniversary. Time flies! It sounds like you have some really fun things planned for December. I’ll be looking forward to hearing about them!

      Wow, 23 years! That’s awesome!

      Please do jump on the Treat Yourself Tuesday train! It’s a good one ๐Ÿ™‚

    As soon as you said it was Tuesday I was look- ooh, Tuesday = sushi day for Kristina! ๐Ÿ™‚

    As you know, I love Christmas decorations SO MUCH. Unfortunately, I have so many trinkets and decorations that I simply have no more room in my house to decorate. I wish that I did. Hey, at least it stops me from buying stuff. I hope you get to share the photos of the Christmas themed photo shoot with us. ๐Ÿ™‚

    One of Paul’s friends and his wife love wrestling. When they got married, they walked into the reception to some wrestling theme long and wore big wrestling belts over their tux and wedding gown. So far you just have that jacket, so I am not going to judge you because I have those other whackos to compare it with haha!

      YES! ๐Ÿ˜€ If that is the one thing I am known for on the Internet I’m okay with that!

      That is so interesting about their wedding reception! Crazy!! I love that they incorporated something into the day that represents their interests so well. It definitely sounds whacky but also really, really cool. I love it!

    Pilates is ok. I definitely prefer yoga, though. I’ve come home with my back feeling a little sore from pilates before… and I don’t really like that. I’ve taught it before, too… but my pilates classes are more like yoga with more core work. Haha. I also have gotten into boxing lately since I teach Yoga and Boxing to people with Parkinson’s. Boxing is a pretty crazy workout.

    I’m looking forward to your vlogmus! ๐Ÿ™‚

      That’s so cool that you’ve gotten into teaching Boxing! I can only imagine what a class is like. I have a pair of gloves and have done striking with Adam before – it’s tough!!! Great workout!

    Happy Anniversary!!
    hahaha, you are cracking me up! Okay, I am not a fan of wrestling, but hey, if you and Adam enjoy it together and you have a hot guy to look, I say have fun girl!!
    I love NASCAR and everyone makes me fun of me for it, but I don’t care…

    1. Kristina

      Hahaha awesome – you are right! I should just own it. I think I just spent so many years thinking of wrestling as absolutely ridiculous that I’m having a hard time adjusting to it as a fan! I’m sure I’ll get there and own it eventually ๐Ÿ˜€

    Mrs Schlub is a big Xmas fan, I’ll have to share pics of our winter wonderland lol.

    No cross training for me. Although someone has mentioned that some places have yoga specific for runners. With my cramping problems I think I need to look into that.

    I love your vlogs! How fun that you get to go shopping for your job. Can I have your job? When I first saw the wind I naturally thought BRRRR, but then I remember you are in Florida where a breeze probably feels amazing. I am a bit jealous that you are connecting with Meg and Ali next month. Why isn’t Oregon closer to Florida?

    When it comes to fitness classes, I am all about SPIN! ๐Ÿ™‚
