Seven minutes!

Happy Sunday everybody!

Sundays are my favorite day of the week, now that I no longer have to work all day. Usually, we wake up early and go to chuch, and then I go to Zumba class while Kurt runs, and then we come home and make lunch together.

Today was a little bit different. We slept in and missed church accidentally (although it felt SO good to sleep in a little bit). Zumba was cancelled because the gym was holding a training all day for instructors... so I decided to hop on the treadmill next to Kurt. I completely surprised myself. Brace yourselves... I ran for 7 minutes straight. I know, I know... for any of you who are avid runners, that is definitely laughable. But I have never, EVER been a runner, and I never thought I would be. Every time I try to run on a treadmill I make it for about 2 minutes, feel like I'm going to die or my lungs are going to collapse, and I stop. Usually, I just walk on a high incline at 4mph. For whatever reason, I decided to try today. I think the Zumba classes are really starting to pay off! This week will be my 4th week of doing it 5 times a week. That's a lot more cardio than I've ever done consistently, so I guess it's increased my stamina and is allowing me to run longer distances. Seven minutes isn't a lot, but I left the gym with a renewed confidence and I'm excited to keep going and gradually increasing the time.

Tonight, I'm going over to my parents' house to watch The Oscars with my mom, sister, and grandma. I have only seen a couple of the movies that are nominated this year, so I'm really going just to see all the pretty dresses. That's always been my favorite part of awards season!

I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend!
