I'm moving!

So the good news that I was excited to share is that I will be moving, THIS WEEKEND! I'm super excited because I have been waiting for this opportunity and it seemed to come up this past weekend. I will be living in the Belmont Shore area of Long Beach and the apartment is literally one block away from the beach. The area is really fun and there is a little area literally walking distance away with one of a kind shops and cute little places to eat. The best part is that it's a GREAT running location. The beach has a big path on it, where the long beach 1/2 marathon was run, and the streets around are very running friendly, minding a few out of control drivers.

Anyways, here's a few pictures.

Yea, that blue stuff.... THAT'S THE OCEAN

The little house in the complex that we are renting. Super cute. I feel like we are living in Germany or something.

I'm super excited to be moving and into such a prime location. Little Chic Runner is all grown up!

As for working out, last night I went to the gym and hit the weights HARD. I am sore this morning and my arms were shaking last night. I worked a lot of my back and my arms, which is good for my weight training. Also this morning I did a quick 20 minute workout from the Biggest Loser Video and it KICKED MY BUTT. I am still sore as I type and I was sweating like a beast and I don't sweat. I'm looking forward to doing more of those!

Anyways, much to catch up on at work. Hope everyone had a wonderful Monday enjoying the bachelor, and is jealous of my new homestead. :) I'm excited for Biggest Loser tonight, but unfortunately won't be watching the episode until tomorrow evening, since tonight I'm going out to my best friend and now roommate's Birthday Dinner!

xoxo

moving.... fun to get a new place, sucks to have to pack and un-pack. Good luck with that.
Love the Bachelor, it is so cheesy and lame, and I still love it. Biggest loser is always good, unless there is a Vicki or Heba involved... ;)

You're going to be living right by me! I love that area (but it's NOT safe to go running at night. I wouldn't do it).
