B-I-N-G-O was his Name-Oh!

Hey y'all! First off, let me start by saying I did not want to work out today, even though I had planned to do intervals and abs. I was sleepy, and being lazy. Also, the base had bingo tonight and as the day whittled away I kept thinking I don't have time. 

So. I went online and read a few blogs, and one in particular got me going. Fashion Fitness Foodie is taking her boyfriend to Key West (best gf ever award?!) and all of a sudden I remembered. Oh snap. I have a honeymoon to go on this year. And it's not at a ski resort. So I said Katy, get off your lazy butt, and GO TO THE GYM. And so I did. 

Usually I do abs (or weights) before cardio, but the stretching mats where I do abs was super crowded today, so I just told myself I'd do them afterwards. And for once, I did. Planks are not easy to hold when your arms are sweaty, btw.

I did this interval workout stolen from Sophia, and it felt even easier than the last time! (Not easy, just easier.) Woo-hoo! I even did the last interval of 8 mph for a full minute instead of 30 seconds!

Then I did my favorite ab workout, and I felt great. Definitely glad I went! 

Then it was off to B-I-N-G-O. My base puts on a free! Bingo game every month (usually holiday themed) and let me tell you, it is the! They have AWESOME prizes like laptops, tvs, iPods, Xbox 360's, etc. 

I've never won a big prize before, just headphones three different times! 

Until tonight!

I won the raffle ticket drawing (another headphone set), but then the very next Bingo game I won a portable 500 GB external hard drive! Woo-hoo! The funny thing is, just last night I was Skyping with the bestie, Ellie, and i was telling her she needs to get a hard drive so I can give her all the tv shows and movies I've got! (It's a bunch!) Now I'll just give her this one, instead. It was fate! :) 

My new headphones!

My bingo was an arrow. 

Anyways, I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine's Day tomorrow with their loved ones. :)
