TGIF folks!!

Cheers to the freakin' weekend! And a 3 day weekend too!

That's always a plus. I'm looking forward to 3 "No Alarm Clock" days.

Where has this month/year gone?! I can't believe that it's almost September!! I love September because it means cooler weather, football, and my birthday! But I'm sad to see my sun filled, boat floating, bikini wearing days go. :( I think that we're going to continue to camp when our schedules allow just to have a place to get away to on the weekends. It's so nice to have that happy place!

It's time to crack down and seriously focus on fall half marathon training.
I'm still not sure which one I'm going to do yet. I'll probably go ahead and run the Route 66 in Tulsa. I've asked Holly and Mel to come run a leg of the full marathon relay with me. I'm not sure if they will be able to yet. I think you should all visit their pages and encourage them to do it!!
I would also like to run one in Colorado, Arkansas or New Mexico but I'm undecided about that at this point.

I've been good with my fitness goals this week. Wednesday night, my Pathways group ran a fartlek run. It was HOT and humid. We did fartlek intervals for the first half of the run and our usual pace and intervals for the second half of the run. We cut it a little short and ended up with 3.5 miles. It was a challenging run but they all did well! Afterward, I did Focus T25 ab intervals.

Yesterday I did Focus T25 total body circuit and a 40 second plank. So far today, I've already done Focus T25 Speed 1.0 and a 40 second plank. I will do T25 lower focus after work tonight, before we head to the lake. I'm planning to run tomorrow and Monday morning and continue my plank challenge.

As far as my eating, I've been pretty consistent with clean eating this week, probably 80/20 this week and I'm pleased with that. Its going to be difficult not to blow it this weekend, but I'm going to try really hard to stay on track!! 

I've gotta go get ready for work so, have a wonderful weekend!

Be safe and be awesome!!


  1. Wow, what a fitness regimen you are on. I am very impressed and the results are obvious over the past year!

    1. Thank you. I'm just trying to be the best that I can be.

  2. You are doing great! Even though fall is coming, we still have a month or two of summer left where I live. LOL! It has been a lot cooler in the mornings, though, so that's a plus.

    Can't wait to hear all about your half and how you fill your race schedule!

    1. I'm loving the cooler mornings, perfect for running!! :-)

  3. I'm with you on the part of not wanting summer to end. For me, it's even more about not wanting winter to come! Loving T25 too and glad you are getting super results with it! :)

    1. I'm not really getting the results I had hoped from T25 either. I like the length of the workout but I think I'm going to have to step up the weight training to see any real results
