double the pleasure double the fun

So good news is I haven't stepped on the scale in two days. I have no idea how much I weigh and honestly its probably not a good idea to look at the scale for the next week and a half if you know what I mean, it will not be in my favor. The end.

As I was running this morning I was thinking about when I used to do a mile or two on the treadmill at the gym and then I would immediately go lift. I'd spend about an hour and a half to two hours at the gym depending on what I did in cardio that day.I'd do that 3-4 times a week. So I realized that now I'm doing 30min of running 3-5x a week with strength training on my off days. That's a lot less time exercising than I'm used to. No wonder I feel like I'm not seeing any results. So I was thinking what if I run in the morning before work and do strength training in the evening or after I get off the train for those 30min before I have to be at work? Sounds like a good idea to me. Hmm. That is, if I'm home for any length of time.. I *might* be leaving town off and on the next couple of weeks.If I do, its going to throw a wrench into my routine. And I might just throw a temper tantrum if I can't continue to run like I'd like to while on the road. Most hotels have a gym but the problem is having the humane schedule to use them (or the hotel not charging 25 bucks a day to use the gym- The Phoenician, Pheonix,AZ anyone?) Jocelyn gave me an exercise band that I can pack in my luggage though so that is cool!
So anyway, double work outs? Or probably the more appropriate way to look at it, splitting your work out? What do you think? Yay? Nay?
P.s. I'm on the train updating via my blackberry. How fun. AHEM someone I know (who's name starts with L and ends with A) has a blackberry but has been slacking on the blog front. Where are your updates woman!?

Hey sexy woman! Don't worry about the weight loss! Seriously, you look homo. Work on being able to do something like 10 push ups with out stopping. or run4 miles in under 40 minutes. you'll see the results sooner than you think. Coming home and doing something is a good idea.
I know, this L to the A person has NO excuse!

Good for you stay away from the scale! Don't allow it to determine how you feel about you, you get to do that!

Btw oh my god Jocelyn how I love you WAY HOMO! LOL
