    Well you look like you had a great weekend! Did you see my Friday night party I posted on IG? Glad you are liking Jcore. We are all sadist in longing for the next 2 days worth of muscle fatigue. I did get a good run and spin in on Saturday. Wanted to do the insane spartan wod on sunday, but I just needed to chill. and am now following you on FB my friend. Kudos for growing up. hee hee.

      Totally saw you Friday night party on IG and LOVED it. Pretty much, that’s what I wanted to do. Isn’t it crazy how we long for the DOMS? Yes, growing up! I feel like I’m official now or something :-)

    you ARE doing great and, as per my 6 year old, choabani and granola are totalllly a food group.

      I totally agree that chobani and granola are a food group in and of themselves!!

    That sounds like so much fun! I do envy all that you New Yorkers have right at your feet on a constant basis. I think you’re doing great with your eating–you’re trying and that’s what counts.

    I had a great weekend too–the husband and I got away w/o kids!

      Thank you! I know that the effort counts and that’s what I keep trying to remind myself. Also that it’s not the end of the world if I don’t stick to the plan completely. I do need some flexibility and need to figure out what works for me. So glad to hear that you had a great weekend away without the kiddos!

    good luck with the eating. it’s hard but once you make good choices a habit it does get easier!!

    I feel like you and I both jumped over hurdles this weekend. For me, it was that “first vlog” – and for you it was the FB page! I am so happy you are on FB! And I’m so glad that first video is behind me (but seriously, your encouragement got me out from behind the couch – so thanks!)

      Yes! Loved that you vlogged. Don’t know why setting up a FB page felt like such a hurdle. Now I just have to figure out how to manage all these social media accounts :-)

    I love New York! I used to work for L’Oreal and spent a good chuck of time there. It is be far my favorite city. Looks like you had such a fun and productive weekend. I will look for your FB page.. look forward to following. xoxo

      Thanks Lisa! It was a good, fun and productive weekend although it already feels so far away!! Thanks for following on FB!

    Summer outdoor concerts are the best! I’m heading over to like your page. :)

    Love that you have a FB page now!! And as for eating habits, it is hard to change them in one week, of course, give yourself some time and just do what you are doing, getting in tune with your habits and make whatever plan you follow to achieve this goal something that works for you, ya know? if it isn’t a particular plan or food logging or whatever, do what works for you. That is I think the key!

      You’re so right – and something that I definitely realized – it is hard to change eating habits quickly. I think that it will work better for me to pay more attention to my body and my hunger and yes, it has to be a plan that works for me, not just something that’s written down in a book. I appreciate your words of encouragement!

    If you need water reminders, I’m your girl! I harass one of my friends who used to HATE drinking water and it totally got her back on the water-drinking wagon! PS I love that you have an FB page now, woohoo! :-)

    • Christine
      July 30, 2012

      Yes please! Actually, I’m much better about the water these days since I’ve started using this Cambelbak water bottle. I don’t know why but I drink a lot more water and more frequently when I use it. Bizarro. I feel like I’m a big girl now with my FB page :-)

    I loved the Brooklyn Concert series. I remember seeing Twyla Tharp’s dance company perform there. I’m like you in regards to eating habits. I try to keep a general balance, but just can’t be too detail oriented or I just throw my hands up and give up.

    I can’t wait to see the changes that are going to happen here on your blog. And, I’m heading over to like your FB page now!

      I love Twyla Tharp! She’s done some amazing choreography for NYC Ballet. With the eating, I think for me, unless it’s literally meals planned out for me every day, it’s hard for me to fudge it if it hasn’t very specific guidelines as to this many units of carbs vs. protein vs. etc. I think that I want and need to focus on generally cleaning things up and figuring out what works for me.

      Yes! I’m nervous and excited about the changes that will happen here but I will definitely keep you posted as to how everything goes.

    Keep at it, sounds like you’re doing great! I think the JCore programs sounds awesome. Just focus on how much effort you’re putting into those workouts and know that eating clean will REALLY make those workouts count! :)

    Great job Christine! That concert looks amazing and like sooo much fun! Good luck with week 2 of JCORE and the clean eating! :-)

    Seriously – i love that you only have two goals and one is not to live on chobani and granola alone – that is what I have been doing!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just ‘liked’ your FB page!
    I love to see people post their daily fitness plans (and challenges) as well as responses to interesting things they’ve happened upon on the internet or in the news! Looking forward to seeing your updates!

    • Christine
      July 31, 2012

      Thanks Tamara. That’s really helpful feedback. I think one of the reasons that I’ve put off creating a FB page was trying to figure out what I would post there!

    I’ve been doing more stabilizing/ balance stuff with my strength training–it’s more challenging and doesn’t pull tendons like too much weight does (my muscles can lift more than my skeletal system, apparently.) I’ve been challenging myself with interval running and trying to get faster–I’m so bad at HIIT stuff–total endurance. My body just hates sprinting!

    • Christine
      July 31, 2012

      I’ve realize that, especially as I’ve gotten older, the balance and stability work is so important! Intervals are HARD but really they are great for you especially if you want to get faster. I hate doing them but I feel better after I do them.

    So we both had big music weekends! How fun! Glad you had such a good time.

    OOOhhhh!!! I love it here!!! So pretty!!! It’s like buying a new car, right?! It’s all shiny and sparkly!!!

    I am trying to pump myself with water too. I let myself slack over the past two weeks. I was sucking down some green tea like I would never be able to have it again.

    Congrats on the FB page!!

    Great job on your goals for the week! I can’t wait to hear how JCORE continues to go for you. I liked your Facebook page! Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be able to live on Chobani and granola alone? :) That should be a food group all its own!

      Thanks Christy for your support and for liking my FB page! I am all for lobbying for Chobani + granola to be a separate food group in the food pyramid! JCORE has been great so far.

    I hadn’t heard of JCORE before, now I’m intrigued. Great job on your goals last week, and good luck this next week!
