Hot Child In The ……Country?

Hope you are enjoying your evening and that you got a chance to check out Shop 4 A Cause where there a bunch of great items to bid on including 2 that I donated.

It has been insanely hot here in the country….Vermont and I am not lovin’ it; 90F in Vermont is gross because it’s humid and sticky.  I have been trying to keep cool with the hubz tonight but we have a ton of packing to do which means we can’t sit in front of our one fan.  It also meant that going for a run today just wasn’t going to happen.  I know, I know but you can stop re-reading that last sentence because yes I said a RUN. I have been trying to get myself motivated and to run a few days a week because I’d like to run a 5K in the next few months.  I am not a runner and although I am pretty active I am not as a aggressively active as I’d like to be so I’ve slowly been working at building my strength and endurance.  Hubby and I have also decided to try out the Insanity workout; now you can gawk and go what is she nuts?

Tonight was a pretty easy dinner as I had pulled out some great local frozen whole wheat pizza dough from the freezer last night so it was all ready for me to cook up tonight.  I topped our pizza with marinated artichokes, spinach, vegetable pasta sauce, 1 vegan sausage, mushrooms, nutritional yeast and Italian Garlic Gold.

With this I enjoyed a nice glass of seltzer and Cheribundi – it’s amazing.

After doing some super packing/cleaning we sat down with a cup of chocolate almond banana ice cream.

Q: Have you tried the P90X or Insanity workout? How about another workout one?


  1. I’ve been doing Insanity for pretty much 6 months straight. I tried to stop it and go to other work-outs when the 60 days was over but nothing else keeps me so in shape. I won’t lie, it’s really hard, but nothing else has ever made me look like this! I thought I was in shape when I started it but it kicked my butt (and still does). 🙂

  2. It’s 90 here in KY too, whew! But I’ll take it over the awful winter we just had anyday. I haven’t tried either of those workouts but I’d like to once just to see what they are all about.

    I am a runner though and even I have been having a hard time getting motivated for a run, especially with this hot weather! Good luck 🙂
