Thanks for the sympathy! Yes, at least I did it. I have to go tomorrow to do day 3 for week 2, I feel like I missed a lot of workout days this week.

SNOW! yuck, I'm hoping we're done with snow, but I think that might be too much to ask! Don't get derailed, you can still get 3 days in this week. I know we're supposed to do them every other day, but I don't always get to, depending on my schedule.

I did week 3 day 1 and OH MY GOSH!! I was able to do the first rep of 3 mins but by the time I had to do it again towards the end I could only do about a minute and a half before I had to start walking it out. It's been a few days and I haven't been able to hit the gym due to my family being in town but I think I might have to do week 3 more than 3 times before I can move on to week 4.

 

On a side note... what kind of shorts are you girls running in??

I've gone through every different pair of undies and shorts combos and I can't find something that I'm not digging out our pulling down!

 

I bought some Champion running shorts that are okay. The Nike Tempos were HORRIBLE because the panty stayed in place but the shorts were riding up like crazy!!!

I started week 3 day 1 today as well. It was for sure a bit challenging but I am finally feeling like I am getting back in my running state of mind. soooo that is good.

 

as far as shorts, can't help you there, I always wear the champion (from target I think) brand of capris

I always wear capris or pants too, for exactly the reason you said, I don't like how they ride up, lol!

 

I'm going to do my last day of week 2 today and will start week 3 tomorrow.

I started yesterday!! I'm not going to lie it was rough. I'm in such horrible shape and being a smoker my lungs were not happy with me!!

 

However, I made it through. I'm a little sore today but it feels good. I wasn't going to do two days in a row but my BFF wants to start today and its supposed to rain tomorrow and Tuesday so I'm going to push and do day 2 today!!

 

Keeping going girls you're all doing great!!

way to go girls! you're all doing amazing!

 

Erika - I secretly love running in the snow. It keeps my body cool so my heart rate doesn't max out, and usually no one else is out there except for me and a few other crazies...so it makes it feel like even greater of an accomplishment. My trainer always says that running in the rain/snow/non-ideal weather conditions builds character lol

 

Cathy - for the shorts part, I'm zero help. I bought an awesome pair of light weight adidas capri's that I just love running in. I always had the same issue with shorts as you mentioned so I gave up about 3 years ago and now I run in capris or long tights.

I finished week 2 today. I didn't have time to get to the gym so I went to the track at my old high school instead, because it was close to where I was headed afterwards. I LOVED running outside. It's not like it's the first time I've ever run outside, it's just been awhile and every other time I've done it, I didn't have my ipod, so it went by really slow. Today went by super fast and it was the perfect temperature so I wasn't overheating, it was great!

 

I know I can't make it to the track everyday and I don't know how I feel about running in my neighborhood, but I think I'm going to try to make one of my runs everyweek outside.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
