HBD to my Uncle Dr. Rudy!!!

When my Tito’s daughter/my oldest cousin, Melissa, got married (exactly 12 years and two months ago today and exactly two weeks after I graduated from McMurry), I spent the ☼morning☼ of her nuptials running in the Maryland rain!

Ate Mel's Wedding

Wayback Wednesday: I can’t believe that back then, I thought that ruching made me look fat ~ it looks fab#PrettyInPink

Those  were the days when I didn’t have to ~ as Milli Vanilli (whose ½ of the duo would’ve turned the BiG 5-0 almost three weeks ago) would ♪sing♪ (or lip-sync) ~ ♫Blame It On the Rain♫ … BEFORE my crazy cold after I chilled on the chili Corpus Christi beach during my business trip.

Even though I myself am NOT a bride, that isn’t stopping me from wanting to stay in shape during wedding season, and most of all, when I defend my dissertation and graduate this fall. Check out my fave fit babes‘ workouts to get wedding-ready for those of you who are about to walk down the aisle or have another important upcoming event:

Addendum

As I work on my stats scoring manual, the timing couldn’t have been better as this special delivery arrives to my door …

All the pieces together … They’ll all fall into place as long as I finish this chase/complete this race & keep a happy face! #FutureDoc #DISPObustAFlow

I must be as excited as a blushing bride because I just received the gown that I’m wearing on my BiG Day!

Workout Wednesday: Sprint in Stilettos ~ Jurassic World-Style

Run in heels!

Heels

♪These heels weren’t made for running…♫ Would you be caught in the Jurassic age sprinting in (a) platforms (east & west) or (b) stilettos (north & south)? Gotta ♥love♥ my glitz & glam collection of shiny spikes

That’s exactly what Bryce Dallas Howard did in Jurassic World ~ which hit box office record-high revenues in its debut weekend ~ as her character, Claire, ran amidst dinosaurs.

This bombshell daughter of Happy Days actor and Oscar-winning director Ron Howard shows us that not only can she rock out nude pumps (one of my recent footwear options for my dissertation defense), she can race in them as well! Here’s more Heel Hype

  • On The Late Late Show, the Howard junior’s cast mate, Chris Pratt, mocked her in his own run-in-heels rendition
  • On Inside Edition, one of the hosts did a series of ankle-strengthening exercises to boost her own potential stiletto-sprinting training:

Lunges are essential.

Calf raises also help.

While skinny heels aren’t particularly my first choice to login miles (obviously, those and platforms aren’t the most practical), some of us runners and good-cause advocates may have raced in them to raise funds for awareness and research.

[Sidestep note: I’m probably one of the only people into pop culture who still hasn’t seen it yet could’ve with my Jurassic fan Bestie ~ but am predisposed with my research now]

Dino Run = Dyno-mite!!!

Workout Wednesday: Beautify Your Thighs!

Happy April Fools’ Day! Rather than joke and be broke (can’t quit my day job), how about I share the wealth of health?

While styling your hair, you might as well knock multiple birds ~ or in this case, leg muscles ~ with one stone and be bad to the bone* and rock solid!

10-20 reps while you heat-dry or iron each section:

  • squats (alternate sets of narrow, wide, plié)
  • lunges (sets of the same leg, then switch)
  • glute lifts (alternate between each leg)
  • knee raises (alternate between each leg)
  • thigh raises (sets of the same leg then switch)
  • calf raises (both legs at the same time)

Your thighs look like sweet potato pies!

That was a line from my fellow trainer‘s brand-spankin’ new single, 1994

This jam makes me want to dance ~ so now I can get my ♥cardio♥ on!
