Let’s talk about good intentions today, shall we?
So here I was with my new workout plan. I decided to follow a Pilates class once every two weeks.
I called my gym to set the dates I wanted to go and what did they say? “Class is full”
My gym is not that big which I like. They don’t have many classes either which I don’t mind because I don’t follow classes. They have 3 Pilates classes on Tuesday morning, afternoon and evening at 8 pm. As I work my only possibility was Tuesday evening and that’s full. I was disappointed when I heard that because I loved Pilates and was looking forward to getting back to it.
I told her I was disappointed and she asked me if I could join a class at 7 pm which I prefer even more.
Of course I told her yes! They are still looking and planning if they are going to have an extra class at 7 and then put me on the regular list. I can then go every week if I want to and if I don’t go, I call them a few days before so my spot is free for someone else.
Fingers crossed that this class will start and I can get back to Pilates.

Yesterday my first “race” since April. I did this one last year and it was so hot that day. Yesterday was a lot better, it was cloudy, no wind and because of that a bit humid and 18C (64 degrees). The track was a 2.5K round and you could run 1 to 4 rounds. I choose to do 5K at this run. The first 2.5K went very well, my legs felt good and I had a fast pace. The second 2.5K I was slower. Some parts of the route were very small and the slower runners had to keep right so the faster runners that were doing the 10K could pass. Because of that I had to stay behind some slower ladies a few times which influenced my time. But all things considered I’m happy with my time, it wasn’t a PR but it wasn’t a complete 5K according to Edward and Edward is always leading for me. After all the struggles I’ve had the last weeks with running it felt great that I felt good during this run.
Weather: cloudy, no wind, 18C/64 degrees.
Distance: 4.95 K / 3 miles
Average time: 6:37 /km
Average speed: 9.1 km/hour

I love who Wednesday’s outfit looks on me, it made me feel thin and happy with my look.
Millennium 2: The girl who played with fire
After spending a year abroad, Lisbeth Salander returns to Sweden. She calls on her court-appointed guardian to remind him, in her own way, of his promise to submit satisfactory reports on her behavior. Mikael Blomkvist continues as a editor of Millenium magazine and they are onto a major story about prostitution and trafficking in women from Eastern Europe. When the investigative journalist working on that story is killed, the police announce that Lisbeth is their prime suspect. Lisbeth and Mikael work independently trying to find who is behind the murders. They not only learn the identity of the culprits but also some of Lisbeth’s family secrets.
What can I say, it’s a good movie, as good as the first one. Again the girl who plays Lisbeth is casted perfectly for this part. There were some parts left out of the book but it was not annoying. Can’t wait to see the last film which we will watch next Sunday.
