Weekly Update: July week 3 and a new Ambassador

 

Happy Sunday! This weeks workouts have been different from usual considering I haven’t been running. I did however manage to get in a few good workouts, and I also have something exciting news to share with you all. But first, the workouts:

Sunday: rest

Monday: 2 mile run, chest, triceps, abs

Tuesday: 20 minutes stationary bike, back, biceps, abs

Wednesday: 1.5 mile run (after this run I decided to not run for 2 weeks)

Thursday: chest, triceps, abs

Friday: back, biceps, abs, legs; 15 minutes stationary bike

Saturday: rest

———————–

I did well on the weights front, 4 x’s last week, with 2 runs and 2 times cross training. This coming week will be all cross training and weights of course, and then I will try running again middle of the next week. Fingers crossed!

Ok, so moving on to the exciting news I spoke of earlier. I was contacted a couple of weeks ago by Verizon Wireless about being an ambassador for them. Of course, I was stoked and said yes. After much anticipation (and with Fedex royally messing up the shipment! They even admitted I didn’t get my box because the driver was LAZY!) I got my new phone, the Samsung Galaxy SIII. You may remember a little over a year ago I actually had the galaxy vibrant by Samsung, and recently traded it in for an iPhone due to some issues I was having mainly with the service through Cellular South. All of that to say I was very curious to see how the Galaxy SIII measured up to the original Galaxy.

The biggest “wow” I saw right off the bat was how big the screen was. My original Galaxy had a screen bigger than my iPhone but this one is HUGE!

Galaxy SIII on the left, iPhone 4S on the right. I immediately charged it up and started playing with it. The 4G LTE is super fast! Everything moves really smoothly with no freezes, pauses, or breaks so far. I have a few other favorites that I have discovered but I will save them for another post. I will be tweeting, texting, calling, instagramming, and web surfing from this bad boy for the next three months so hang on! If you want to check out the Twitter stream with all the chatter, check out #VZWA for all the fun!

QOTD: What kind of cell phone do you have? Do you like it?

Disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Wireless Ambassador program and have been provided with a wireless device and three months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product.

    I have 2 phones…and old school (2 1/2 yr old) Samsung gravity..I must have ‘real’ keyboard for fast texting! I love this phone though I have nothing on it and cant do anything other than text and the occasional actual phone conversation…
    also have a junker droid with another company mainly so I can do a few things (though of course just found out that its not compatible with instagram droid app–go figure)
    one of these days I’ll get a ‘real’ phone
    now my daughter on other hand, has the Samsung Galaxy SII and loves it…though hers is huge too compared to her blackberry that finally bit the dust!

    Congrats girlie! I use AT&T but I’ve loved Verizon for years because of their involvement in spreading domestic violence awareness. VW is a really socially responsible company which makes my heart happy. :)
