Hope everyone had a good weekend! 🙂 We went to the fair with some friends on Friday night, and there are two things that you can always count on at a good old fashioned county fair. People watching and fried food, and we got plenty of both!
The fresh cut potato chips with bacon and cheese sauce were amazing.
For dessert, D had a hankering for the fried twinkie. Wasn’t my thing, so I went for some chocolate gelato.
It’s not everyday you get a nice evening here, so we took in some live tunes at the fair.
I think we were more enthused than our husbands. 😉
On Saturday I went with a dear friend to help her pick out a wedding dress. So fun! 🙂 She found a B.E.A.utiful dress! D of course didn’t participate in this activity, but he did go and run some not-so-fun errands. Shortly followed by a little research for his fantasy football teams.
Yesterday we spent some time on our honey-do lists. Ya know, the normal change the A/C filter, vacuum and mop, and pull weeds business. Trying to get motivated for that stuff is harder than it should be, but always feels so much better after it is done.
For a grab & go breakfast this week, I made a batch of these: Baked Blueberry Almond Oatmeal Bars. (I used dried cherries and ground flax seed cause it was on hand. Still worked!)
Now it’s Monday. Whaa, whaaa. . .
I know I mention this often, but summer here is HOT. And it isn’t getting better anytime soon. In order to get my runs in without passing out, I have to run at 6 o’clock A.M. (!!!) It’s so early for me, but definitely worth it to avoid the heat!
Here are the workouts and meals for this week.
Monday – Maple Sweet Potato Hash
Morning Run – 4 miles (check!)
Tuesday – Lightened Cheesy Spaghetti Squash
Wednesday – Turkey Meatballs with Summer Squash
Evening Run – 3 miles
Thursday – Grilled Burgers & Baked Sweet Potato “Fries”
1/2 mile run
Countdown Workout (I’ll do the Total Rounds one this time)
1/2 mile run
Friday – VeGaS!!!
Morning Run – 3 miles
Saturday – VeGaS!!!
Sunday – Smoothies
Right now, my fitness goal is to increase my running mileage by 2 miles every 2 weeks for the next 2 months. I think I see a pattern here?? 🙂 I’ve ran a handful of half marathons in the past, and saw huge improvements from my first race to my last, but over time I just got burnt out. I’ve spent the last year focusing on cross and strength training. But now, I think I’m ready to ease my way back into it. After awhile…a long while…I may start to train for another one. I used to train with this plan.
What are your fitness goals? What are you doing to achieve them? Let me know!
Have a good start to your week! Adios! 🙂
