My Workout Buddy

Posted on Updated on

Tuesday mornings are another spin class day for me…but today was much different…today I was pleasantly accompanied by my best friend whose an amazing athlete and supports me each and everyday…

My hubby!!!

I was pleasantly surprised yesterday when he mentioned he’d like to join me for a 6am spin class…say what?!  Hubby has to be “in the mood” to take a spin class, so I was more than happy to hear that he wanted to join me this morning.  And I have to say, I was impressed that he wanted to take advantage of a 6am class since this week he starts work at 8am instead of the usual 7am…so I give props to the hubby wanting to get an early cardio sesh on with me – sweet!  And I don’t know what it is, but I just really like working out together…having him right by my side spinning away I think makes me a lil extra competitive and I like to show him I can kick his booty in the cardio room…thank you very much…and I think the ladies in class liked the scenery too, if ya know what I mean 😉

However if we’re talking about the weight room, he’ll leave me in tears while I’m trying to eek out just one push up or pull up…he dominates the iron and looks pretty darn hot doing it too 😉

After our gym session together it was time to say goodbye and head to work!  It was a fun, energetic new way to start the morning and I hope he joins me more often to get his booty whipped by his wifey 🙂

Hope you all are having a fabulous Tuesday so far!  It’s an icky one over here…can’t believe it’s almost July and it’s doom and gloom 😦

This is outside my office window…if you look reeeeal close you can see the San Francisco skyline…I’ll have to snap another photo for you all when it’s pretty and sunny out!

Here’s my outfit for the day…and I updated the Fashion page with an old picture from when I worked at Corporate Macy’s West…it’s with a special guest and I’ll give you one hint…he likes to say often “Make it Work” 😉

Do you like to workout by yourself or with a buddy?  Have you ever worked out with your significant other and if so, did you like it?!

    You and your hubby are one gorgeous couple!!
    I don’t mind a workout buddy if I’m doing group exercise classes, but if I’m running I actually prefer to be alone 🙂

      You’re the sweetest Courtney, thank you! I agree with you on the running…I’ve tried it with my husband and I just end up getting frustrated b/c he runs so much darn faster than me! At least with a spin bike we’re stationary 😉

    I used to love to work out with someone- she taught spin and was awesome at it! I know she still would be if she taught again. You might know her? 🙂 but I totally understand how its nice just to work out and not feel like its a job! We all need time for ourselves and exercise is perfect for that!

    You and your hubby are so awesome together.

    I definitely like to have a workout buddy whenever possible and can totally picture you whooping some butt in the cardio arena! I remember getting on the treadmill next to you one day and never again…you just kept going.
