Getting back into cardio..


Yesterday my morning started off with a 30 minute cardio workout on the bike. I did a 10 minute warm-up and then I did an interval workout to spike my heart rate. Rather then keep it on one level I was able to burn more calories and  get a little sweaty. I am happy to get in some exercise whenever I can. With my collar bone injury, upper workouts are out of the question right now. So it is a great time to work on my lower body strength and cardio.


I also took Cooper for a 20 minute walk. I thought it might be challenging in my sling, but it wasn’t. He stayed by my side the whole time. Well until he saw a giant snow pile that he wanted to jump on! It’s fun to see how much he likes the snow.  I’m sure he will be excited for the 4-8inches we are supposed to get this Thursday!

Last night we headed to Villa Italia in Stamford, CT for dinner! Again, we were guests at a private opening. It was delicious. I didn’t take any pictures because when my food arrived I dove right in, oops! I had Basa Marachiera which was a white fish in a tomato sauce with basil and tomatoes. It was good!

Ava was such a good girl at dinner and slept almost the whole time!


I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned yet that my calves are still sore. The 48-hour muscle soreness got me. I mean it definitely feels good to be sore but I feel it with almost every step I take so that constant reminder is torture!

Tonight I will be teaching my boot camp class, so I’m just about to sit down and make a new workout & hopefully a new workout playlist! If you have any good song suggestions, please send them my way!

  1. Yay!! So happy Ava had a great first day at daycare! That makes me feel a lot better about Allstons upcoming first day March 4th. But first we have to make it through our visit to NY, if that even happens. The weather both here in Atlanta and up by you guys has been crazy this winter!!

    • Good luck with Allston’s first day! At least you still have a few more weeks at home. Enjoy it.

      Yes this weather is nuts! when are you supposed to head to NY? We already have about 8 inches today in Connecticut.
