Hey friends! Welcome to the start of another week! I hope you had a great weekend. Remember when I was a little bit vague about my plans in my Friday post? Well that was for a good reason. Dave and I hopped on a plane Friday afternoon and flew to Columbus, Ohio to surprise our best friends for a birthday. Of course, one of the friends knew we were coming into town so we could make the arrangements, but the other one didn’t. I’ll give you the full report tomorrow once I have more time in front of the computer, but for now, a few pictures will have to suffice, and then we’ll get to the regularly scheduled “Weekly Workout” recap.
A few scenes from our surprise trip to Columbus, Ohio
The past couple of days have gone by incredibly quickly, which always seems to happen when you’re hanging with some of your favorites …
Rudy made the trip to Ohio with us and was a champion in the airport and on the plane. Other photos show our time at a rainy Ohio State game, which ended up being a great time in spite of moments of bad weather.
We did a lot over the two days and three nights in Columbus and enjoyed every second, but of course, it’s back to the real world today as we travel home. Now let’s get to fitness …
My recent weekly fitness and workouts recap
Each Monday, to start the week off right, I like to take a look at my most recent week of workouts. I have been doing these posts for more than a year, because it’s a good way to keep track of my activity and give a little background on how I try to keep a balanced routine. Here we go …

What was good about my week of workouts?
The past week was a great week of workouts, once again, because it was so diverse. I fit in two barre classes, a TRX yoga session, an Orangetheory session and three different types of Les Mills classes, giving my body varied movement over the course of five days. I also took two full rest days, which was nice. The best part about this week of workouts was the fact that I picked up weights four times, which is a great change from recent weeks, which have been more cardio heavy. (Another highlight includes the fact that Dave and I went to the gym to complete an upper-body circuit together Monday morning before work, which will hopefully become part of our regular routine.)
What could have been better about my week of workouts?
This past week of workouts was pretty good. While I took two full days off and didn’t get my six days of work as usual, I still fit in a lot. I felt pretty good, so I can’t complain.
This morning, Dave and I are flying back to the Bay Area, and I’ll be back in action in the gym to teach BODYATTACK tonight. By the way, my giveaway for a one-month supply of delicious Siggi’s Dairy ends tonight, so make sure to enter. See you tomorrow!
