Hi everyone! Wonder how I got to blog and be featured in Seventeen? I entered one of their contests and caught the eye of the editors.

This is a chance for you to gain communications experience, more readers, and to share your ideas.
It’s about hiking! I love hiking…but don’t do it alone starting at 6pm because of mountain lions. I got kind of nervous today after reaching the top of hill that I just sprinted down praying that I would get to the parking lot safely.
This one’s about bike workouts, recreation, and cycling SAFETY. omgodz cars are scary but learn some rules and road biking can be an exhilarating experience. Does anyone bike with their friends or families? I love seeing families go on rides together. My friends do downhill mountain biking which sounds so crazy.

Note: Something better I did this week was exercising in the evenings before dinner instead of my usual mornings. I’m trying to be more flexible with fitting exercise into my day in preparation for medical school when I’ll most likely have lots of 8am classes.
Does it stress you out to leave exercise until the end of the day? I feel like I have something hanging over me…
Monday: 1 hr elliptical trainer + Seventeen’s February Workout (40 minutes) while watching Tangled!!! omgodz so good

Wednesday: Rest, not feeling well

Saturday: 4 mile run, 20 min elliptical, Seventeen’s Feb. Trim & Tone (addicted to Full Metal Alchemist)
Sunday: Bikram/Hot Yoga 90 minutes
Notes: I don’t think my feet muscles like minimalist running shoes for long runs =/ I felt fine after my 17 mile run last week, but after cross-training on the elliptical the next day, a muscle on my outer foot got strained. So, not much running this week, but I tried to do some more strength training. Oh and…you may notice that I’ve been watching a lot of movies lately because I’m still on vacation! Exercising while watching TV is just too easy…now exercising while surfing the internet may be a little challenging…
Bloggin’ Plan for next week: Photography & Recipes
Check out my blog post for Seventeen Health! It’s about other ways to do cardio instead of the typical running/jogging routine.
This is all you need to workout at home:
There are lots of workout routines using just these or nothing at all!
Right now I’m working out with Team 17 & Seventeen Magazine! (The link is to Jenna Ushkowitz/Tina from Glee doing February’s workout movies) This is a total body workout that’s good for beginners, but also one that experts can modify to their level.
I also like Nike Training Club for free workouts on my iPhone.
Bikram/Hot Traditional Yoga is great your strengthening your back & leg muscles. I do this once a week.
…and I bust out push-ups & crunches after running!
…and I do wall-sits or hold boat pose for 2 minutes while I brush my teeth lol
