    That pizza ruled!

    You’ve probably gotten tons of bad advice on your IT band issue, but here’s some more! I’ve heard it’s often caused by running shoes that have too much stability. If you’re rolling too far along that outside edge of your shoe it puts undue stress on the IT band. Don’t know if that sounds like anything you’re experiencing but you might try a more neutral shoe and see if that helps?

      I hadn’t heard that. I got fitted for running shoes months ago. I love the shoes I got. I have a sports medicine appt next week and I’ll be wearing those shoes for the appointment. We’ll see what the doc says!

    I don’t really do enough abs and really need to work on it! I just had about 4 slices of veggie pizza for lunch…… it was good but not light at all!

      I’ve neglecting my core for too long and wondering “Why isn’t my stomach stronger?” Duh! Gotta do work! 😉

    Great workout! I go in spurts with abdominal work. Right now I’m doing okay but not fabulous!

    I lean more towards planks for core than crunches.

      Those are killer! I’m trying to incorporate planks into my routine but with tendinitis in my wrist it’s hard.

    Woohoo! Way to go hitting the rowing machine. As soon as my achy shoulder subsides I’m going to hop on – you’ve motivated me.

      It surprises me every time. Rowing is such a great workout!

    Oh personal training is MUCH more fun if you’re bitching the whole time. Sorry you didn’t get to practice this with the ditz!

    I used to have this HUGE former military trainer and he’d make me lay on my side for legs lifts. I used to whine to him “Do you have any idea how much these thighs weigh??????”

    He loved me 😉

      HAHAHA!! That’s too funny!
