I always forget that not everyone who reads this blog, follows me on Instagram. So my everyday on Instagram sometimes gets overlooked when I go to write a post, here on the blog. If you want to know what's going on in my everyday, follow me on Instagram here.
First of all, I got so excited about running the Nike Half Marathon in DC, that I immediately signed up for another half marathon!!! I'm more than stoked about this one!! It is called the Diva Half Marathon and it's in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
It is more than perfect for me. If you know me in real life, or you've read this blog long enough, you already know my favorite color is pink. This half marathon SCREAMS girly, pink, fun! Pink boas, tiaras, roses, champagne, and an adorable medal, I'm in! Maybe I'll even rock a tutu - HA! Just kidding!
The only thing is I'm waiting .... again. This one is on April 27, 2014, so I have a while to train and get ready for it. I think it's worth the wait though, it looks like so much fun, who wants to run it with me?! I'll totally meet you there!
Another Instagram "announcement" that I haven't talked about here is as of May 9th, I gave myself a "Planking Challenge." My goal was to see how long I could hold a plank. Then every day do it longer than the day before.
This was from Christmas, but you get the idea. So far, it's working out really well! I didn't do it on Monday though, because I wasn't feeling like doing anything but sleeping. But here are my results so far from day 1 to day 4....
I shocked myself. I wanted to be able to hold the plank for 2 minutes (or longer) by the end of the month. I actually think I might exceed that. It's amazing to be able to set a goal and reach it or even exceed it and it's actually a lot of fun trying to meet it. Yesterday, I wasn't feeling it, but I couldn't go two days in a row without doing it, so this was yesterday's time....
Yikes! I blame this on being sick and the fact that my abdomen couldn't take much more abuse. I can mark this down as A for effort I guess, but I was shaking after 17 seconds. Just being real. If you want to play along at home on Instagram, just post a picture of your time and hashtag it #bloomplankchallenge
So far, you girls that have been doing it already, have been rockin' it! Keep it up!!
Now, today I'm trying to get over this hangover feeling and praying that my headache goes away.
Have a happy Wednesday!
