Is it really September 30th? Good bye summer- hello Fall!
Sadly the past two weeks has been pure rain in Chicago, but yesterday it did manage to be nice out for a few hours.
Just long enough to take the recovered puppy to the beach for a little sand time. Turns out Charlie got sick because he ATE part of his toy. Smart pup right there.
As I look back on my workouts in September they were pretty lame. I only ran 9 days this month for a total of 42.7 miles. I’m not training for anything so my guess is my running will pretty much stay the same over the next few months. I am at 587.8 miles for the year..maybe shoot for 800?
I did end the month with a nice 6 mile run today bringing my weekly total to 15 miles- highest week since the half!
And now its the weekend! I have a freshly baked loaf of pumpkin bread waiting for me and then its off to the movies. Sean and I are going to dinner then to see Money ball. Anyone else seen it?
How was your September?
Last night I decided Charlie was sleeping through the night no matter what. I’ve been getting up with him every night around 2 am because he barks like crazy when he wakes up and realizes hes in his crate/the kitchen/the bathroom.
Well that plan backfired. He woke up at 12:30 this time going nuts. I finally went to check on him and when I took him outside he got sick everywhere.
Poor puppy baby. He went back to sleep then got sick again at 6 am. I called the vet but they said just keep an eye on him and don’t feed him until tonight.
He was running around like a wild man this morning so I think he’s going to be just fine. The puppy walker is coming twice today to check on him just to be safe.
It’s hard being a puppy mom!
Last week I decided to start a discussion for this season’s Biggest Loser. Check out the comments from last week then join in for this week!
Episode 2: “It hurts to look good- that’s why I am in pain every day” -Dolvett
Trainers: I am really digging Dolvett more and more each episode. His team seems to really like him as a person but he is a hard ass in the gym. As a trainer he seems to be doing a great job- not quite Bob status but way better than Anna.
Bob: so funny this week. Those early morning songs? He was cracking me up. Love me some Bob Harper.
Anna: My hatred for her continues this week. She is NOT qualified to do this job! I know a lot of people like her because “she’s so pretty and nice” but she does not know how to work with these older contestants. If they are ever going to be successful they need a trainer who knows how to work around old age and injuries, that requires experience and exercise physiology/health training knowledge. Anna does not have that and it shows.
Contestants: I really liked the red team this week! They are bonding really well and I know those boys will stick it out until the end. I feel bad for the girls because they will get teamed up on but that’s how the show works. Favorite of the week was Ramon. He reminds me a lot of the Hawaiian boys from a few seasons ago. Shocking that he had no idea how bad his health was but he seems determined to change it around.
I am finding the blue team a tad bit annoying. Johnny didn’t try and he deserved to go home in my opinion. Then again I am biased and hate Anna so maybe that’s why I don’t like their team.
Game: The donut thing was crazy completely due to the fact that John, the 37 mini donut eater, ended up losing the most weight. That was SO lucky. I didn’t really think the challenge was that interesting but it was fun that it came down to the last 3 seconds. I feel like they are making a better effort of showing more workouts this season so far and I love that.
Overall solid second episode. I am excited to watch Drew Brees next week!
What were your thoughts on this weeks episode?
Anna lover or hater?
Do you think the entire blue team will be eliminated before anyone else goes?
