Darn Tropical Storm Fay!

For three weeks in a row I ran four days a week. Granted it was only two miles, but I found time to fit in a run, and it felt great! The roommate and I also kept up with doing abs, squats, and push ups. Unfortunately, due to continuous rain, my running did not happen last week; however, the roommate and I kept up with our other work outs and incorporated jumping jacks. I don't remember jumping jacks being so exhausting, when I was a kid. Fortunately, school starts this week, which means I can run in the gym on campus if it's raining. I am very excited about that! The schedule for the group exercises classes is pretty disappointing this semester. I had planned on going to the 6:15 am spin class, but now the earliest class is at 8 am. And they got rid of the relaxation class, which also made me sad. I am going to try and fit in some spin, abs, and hopefully a jump roping class during the week. At the very least, I want to keep up with running a minimum of three days a week.

After all of my continuous studying, I passed two of the four proficiency exams. I am not accustomed to failing, so it was a bit painful to hear. I passed analytical and organic chemistry, which was nice. I did not pass the inorganic test, but in my defense I've never taken inorganic, so I can't be too upset with myself. I also did not pass the physical chemistry test, but I had only taken a lighter version of the class at least four years ago. Oh well. This means I will be auditing the undergraduate classes, and I have to pass them with a B or better. No problem. I obviously need to learn/remember more anyway.

As dorky as it sounds, I'm looking forward to classes starting tomorrow. My TA assignment is great, so I'm relieved about that.

I went home to visit my family last weekend and took some pictures of my niece. She is absolutely adorable! Her hair is starting to have a red tint to it. Next week Chris and I are going to Sarasota for his friend's wedding. I'm really looking forward to getting dressed up. I got a dress last weekend, compliments of my amazing boyfriend, and I can't wait to wear it!

I hope everyone is doing great! I'll try to keep up with blogging my weekly work out schedule and running log. I've been slacking!

  1. How is it that you seem to be the only non-redhead in your family? (at least between your siblings)
