We are going home!!

In two days my husband and I will be flying home with our dog to the US to start our move back home from the Russia to the US. We will be in the US for 2 weeks, then we will be coming back to Russia to make one final move, at the end of February.

During my 2 week stay in the states, I am going to be signing up for my new gym! This is a big deal for me as I have been working out inside my home for the past 3 years that we have been living here in Siberia. It has been hard, especially during the LONG cold winters. But now I will have a gym to go to and explore! I cannot wait!!! I will try and report back how our house finding is going as well as the status of my workouts during the two weeks.

This really is the most exciting time of our lives!

Blessings! xo

First workout of the new year...

I finally got my first workout in for 09. It was a short workout, but I pushed myself to maximize my time. I did a combination of cardio on the treadmill, bike and the elliptical along with bicep and back ST. It was hard getting into my groove at first but after a few minutes, I hit my stride.

Everything is going well with our move, only 4 more days until we leave for the US!

Cardio Intervals with ST -
Total time - 41 mins
Calories burned - 374
AHR - 73%, 141 MHR - 92%, 177

Things are going great over here in snowy Siberia!! We are looking forward to flying back to the US in 10 days for the first phase of our move! We will be gone until the end of the month and I will try and log in as much as possible. We are very busy getting our home ready for the move. As far as the house hunting, it is going well!! We have found about 10 homes to view during the next few weeks and we have finalized the arrangements for our dog to fly back with us as well. So much as been done to prepare us for the next 10 days, but there is much left to do!

I am hoping to start back working out tomorrow, I think it has been long enough for my knee to rest and I need to feel the rush of running again, I miss it! I also cannot wait to start lifting again, it has been awhile since my last session and my muscles need to be shocked back into burning mode!

For those of you who are new to my blog, thank you for your comments and support. I hope to have more time soon so that I may reply back and begin posting again. I hope everyone is having a great start to the year!!

Keep reaching and working hard!!
