My "Old" Work Out Partner/Trainer :)

So a few years ago when I started working out at a gym… I would see this girl there all the time.  Then I realized she was pregnant and she continued to work out everyday!  In time, she had her baby and then I began training for my second marathon and stopped going to the gym.  About a year later… she showed up one day to our newly formed running group.  She looked amazing!!!  We started running together and became really good friends.  Then she made me re-join the gym so we could lift weights and take classes together.  She really gave me the confidence to push myself in the gym and be better.  She gave me snack ideas and made me drink my protein shakes right after our work outs.  She was my fitness role model!!  Eventually we moved to another city about 4 hours away… 
so we were no longer able to work out together!  :(  
I’m on vacation for the Easter holiday… and guess what!?!?!?!  We had the chance to work out together again!  I have not concentrated on weights as much since I moved so she couldn’t wait to put me through the ringer.  It was so fun to be back in my original gym, working out next to her, and catching up!  
She kicked my butt today, and I look forward to being sore tomorrow!  😉  I already feel like jello!

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!
