Work your body

Halloween was no excuse for us to skip our Monday lift sesh at RU Sports performance center.
But it WAS an excuse to lift in costume (or as much costume as allows lifting 60+lb barbells.)

I went with Hawaiian style

Katya made the 80s proud

Lesley dressed up as Xterra World Champion...oh wait....
So now it's NO-vember. Not that I believe in being negasaurus rex or anything, but I did A LOT of "just say YES" in October (to donuts, cake, martinis, etc) so I'm pulling in the reigns just a little bit so I don't have a disaster on my hands on January 1st. Nothing big, no counting calories, no "diet" per se, just saying NO to gluten & NO to sugar. The exception (always an exception!) is one piece hunk of dark chocolate after dinner.Maybe a piece of pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving too :)

How's your November going? Did you know 11.02.2011 is a palindrome? Or, as I saw on twitter...a calendrome.. I like it!

p.s. my hip is not better! It may be NO-running-vember as well...c'est la vie!

In the Katya picture... the girl in the background is doing to dreaded "reading on a box" plyometric. Those make me sore.

Very funny, Lucho! The girl in the back is one of the trainers there...not sure why she is on a box..

Kim said...

im glad you said NO-vember rather than MO-vember - cause that would be scary if you were trying to grow a mustache this month ;)

That Xterra WC costume is good. Looks almost real! ;)

Jamie said...

Haha. I'm with Kim. That 80's gettup doesn't... er... seem to be providing Katya much support. :-)

Be careful not to get your skirt caught up in any machines!

Ick, MO-vember grosses me out. No one participating should be allowed within a mile of any middle school.

And ha - even I would do those reading on a box plyos.

Yasi said...

I'm adopting your NO terminology for this month/year/lifetime as well. I said yes and let in WAY too much in September and October. Now I'm kicking myself in the ass!

runninggunner said...

I gotta get on this No-vember plan as well.

MissFancyPants said...

Love the costumes while working out! I am also celebrating NO-vember as well here. :)

idropboys said...

really do I have to start saying NO....I was hoping for another free month of yes...

Adorable pics! I love Katya's leg warmers. I think I had the same pair in the early 80's to keep me warm at Syracuse University ;-) (Along with my oh-so-stylish Jordache jeans - LOL)

Beth said...

Awesome costumes! I hate recovering, I am just coming back from one in July! Waiting and holding back is the worst part!
