HBBC Weekly Update - Excess

LBM is awesome at Insanity
This past week might be summed up as a week of excess.  Not the usual kind of excess in drinking or eating but an excess in workouts and let's not forget the excessively nice weather! 
The start of HBBC is usually the start of some serious cross training for me.  This time of year I don't have any races to look forward to until at least February so I use the "off" time to try to focus on getting my fitness a bit more well rounded.  This year I am also working on getting my hips to look at little less rounded.

How many times do you think I've stepped on that cat?

113.86 pts for the week
I didn't look back to see what my running/workouts looked like last year at this time but I ended the week feeling like my schedule might have been a little excessive.  And considering I'm expecting I probably should not go over board.   

What do you think?  Excessive or just holiday spirit?
Speaking of excessive, our neighbors put up their lights.  Actually they had been working on it for a few weeks.  This is just a small sample of what their property looks like.  
 Did I slip that in or will you be back tomorrow for the announcement?


  1. Did you just say what I think you just said? Congratulations!! WOW! That is wonderful!

  2. Sounds like congratulations are in order! Congratulations!!!

  3. A baby??? Wow! That's so exciting! Congratulations and take it a little bit easy :-) I cannot imagine your neighbour's power bill.

  4. So sneaky, the stealth announcement! Congrats to you all...so exciting!

  5. Congratulations!!! That's great news! I love how you "slipped" it in there...

    And the neighbors lights...hmmm, not sure about that. I cannot imagine their electric bill. Those houses make me laugh when we drive by, it's all dark and them BAM, brightness!!!

  7. Congrats on the week of workouts and "the other happy news"

  8. What?! Wow!!!! Congrats. That' is SO fantastic! Aren't you the sneaky one! Very excited for you.

  9. When you want to improve your shape as quickly as possible, you should prevent your body from being exhausted. For me the effective help to avoid overtraining is Navy Seal Formula manufactured by MGNutritionals. I've been taking it before workouts and was feeling great! I train twice as much as I used to and still feel full of energy. Never expected such an outstanding result.
