Rain rain and more rain...that's what we've been experiencing here in Southwest Louisiana this past week. I woke up early on Saturday morning to go for a run but the outskirts of "Katrina 2.0" was causing a torrential rain downpour outside. Thankfully, my area wasn't affected much from all the rain, but I can't say the same for many neighboring town near miles down the interstate. :( While Southeast Louisiana was affected from the storms first, Southwest Louisiana is now being affected as the river causing all of the major flooding here didn't crest until late yesterday afternoon. I have a cousin near Gonzales (kinda near Baton Rouge) whose home flooded as well as many friends whose homes were affected from the storm. Please keep all of them in your prayers!

Instead of a run on Saturday, I enjoyed spending time with my sweet boy all Saturday and I have zero complaints. He's so much fun...I love spending time with him!

By Sunday, I was going stir crazy so I did a few circuits of my PT routine. It had been a while since doing them so I was a little rusty (bad runner, I know)...

Monday came along and guess what? So did more rain. I decided to search out a few workout videos on Youtube and I came across the Tone It Up girls kettlebell workout. This workout was 36 minutes long and a blend of yoga and toning with kettlebells. I LOVE it and it quickly became one of my new favorite workouts! If you'd like to check it out, click here

By Thursday morning, I was finally able to go for a run outside before work! YAY! At first, I walked outside and thought it was going to be a cooler run but nope...100% humidity. 

After I realized how high the humidity was, I ran back inside to grab my bottle of off spray. No zika for me, thank you! 

As I neared the end of my 2 mile run (that's all I had time for before work), I had to stop and assist a neighbor as she unsuccessfully attempted to catch her dog. I was the reason the dog got away from her in the first place and I felt bad so I stopped to help.

I also forgot to stop my watch in the process, then attempted to sprint home to catch it back up! Whoops! 

100% humidity and my hair do NOT agree! I was born in the wrong climate for all of this nonsense! 

Unfortunately, Brayden and I were not able to take any afternoon walks this week because it rained every evening I was available. Whomp whomp.

This morning, I'm doing another Tone It Up workout before work. Guess what's in the forecast for the weekend? Yep...more rain! Hopefully, it will stay away from the areas that definitely don't need any more rain and clear enough that I can squeeze in a Saturday morning run! This no running business is for the birds! 

I hope you all have a fabulous (and dry) weekend!!


  1. Tone it up? I'll have to check that out. I'm still doing PT exercises almost every day, but I do need to change things up to keep it interesting.

  2. It's been raining every afternoon up here, too. It monsooned yesterday after right as I went to get EK from school. Of course. So far today it's just overcast, so fingers crossed for no rain!

  3. The rain has been insane! So sad for all those affected by the flooding! Hope you get in a great run this weekend!

  4. Katrina 2.0, I was just thinking about that too. That hurricane/flood was around this time in August was it not? Stay safe down there.
