Speaking of good friends, I spent all of yesterday at Katie's looking through pictures from the wedding and catching up on multiple weeks with no hour long phone conversations. We got ice cream for lunch and just hung out all day. We almost never have time to do that anymore so it was wonderful. Also on the good friends front, my college roommate Ash is back in town (you may remember her from other posts, despite living in Chicago she's been back in town a lot for different events). She has a wedding at the Cape this weekend (at the same church the Kennedy's go to...exciting haha). We knew her flight was getting in late (plus she had to drive to the Cape from Boston) but her plane ended up getting delayed so I don't think she got in until 3 in the morning. SO basically she is upstairs sleeping in my sisters room but I haven't see her yet haha. Tomorrow she and I are going to drive back to Boston so she can try on her bridesmaid dress and get measured and all that. Plus she'll have to get back to the airport boo. The weather down here this weekend is terrible (which is even more sad because I have two friends of friends getting married this weekend down here...boo), we are getting tropical storm some boy that begins with a D which I forget right now, but we are getting him (Danny?). I am hoping to get in a good work out, get some work done and maybe see a movie while Ash is at the wedding this afternoon/evening. I hope everyone has a great weekend and hopefully is having way better weather than us!

Back in March I got on a health kick and I bought Jillian Michaels 30 day Shred. I never did it for 30 days in a row, but I did it 3-4 times a week (on days I didn't run) until about mid May. I loved it because I did feel like I got a good work out in 20 minutes and I was definitely sore after. I stopped doing it in mid May because I thought it was probably not helping my knees with all of that squatting. Fast forward to now when I just signed up for a kettlebell class at my gym with one of my friends from work. I haven't been *the best* about weightlifting lately and I figured to avoid insane soreness after my first class in a couple of weeks I should probably get back into it. This lead me to Shred again yesterday. I only did Level 1 and it definitely was not as hard as the first day I did it. Afterwards, I take a shower and go about my day completely forgetting about doing the shred at all. Last night I wake up in the middle of the night and I'm like WHAT DID I DO TO MY ARMS?????? OWWWW! I forgot, but that Jillian Michaels really kicks my butt! I am definitely going to have to keep up with that for the next couple of weeks (and next year during wedding dress season haha). This morning I think I'll take it easy on the elliptical and maybe not do the arms part but then tomorrow or Monday is back to my good friend Jillian.
