To start, here are few photos from my trip to Napa that I promised last week. 🙂
Of course like always I was hoping to post a little sooner, but my job is just so crazy right now I hardly have time for anything else. It was pretty nice here last week so I took advantage of the evenings and hung out with friends and ran.
On Wednesday I decided to start the 30 day squat challenge. I wanted to post so you guys could do it with me, but you should still start. You’ll just either need to add in some extra squats to be done on May 23rd or finish a little after me. I decided to take photos so I can hopefully see if all of these squats make a difference. I know at the very least they will help my running, because squats are the one thing I never do enough of in my training. Today, I did my 70 squats while catching up on last week’s American Idol, but tomorrow I’ll do the 75 in the gym with weights. Mondays are my leg days anyways so I’ll just incorporate it into my workout some how. The rest of the days I’ve been doing the squats as my warm-up instead of doing cardio. Feel free to join in, lets shape those booty’s just in time for summer!
This weekend I decided to finally try out running with a running group. I get nervous trying something new, but I hate always running by myself and its time I start hanging out with other runner’s if I want to continue to run. I am so happy I went. The run was a pretty easy 7 miles with a couple of big hills. I found a couple of ladies that had similar pace as me and we were able to talk most of the run which made it go by super fast and I learned a lot while I was running. I am now not as scared and want to go to the track workouts that are on Wednesday nights so I can work on improving my speed. I think it’s exactly what I need to improve my running and work on my PR.
With my boyfriend out of town, the weekends can go by really slow so this weekend I decided to do a little house re-organizing. I’m so happy I did. My house feels more like a home now and it helped made the time go by fast.
This week is another busy one for so I’m sure it’ll go by pretty fast. I can’t believe it’s almost May. I really want to do another whole30 or cleanse for May to get ready for the summer, just haven’t decided what to do and what I’ll be able to do with all food tastings I’ll have for the new restaurant we are opening.
My goals for the week are:
1. To not miss a workout (Monday, Wednesday, Friday)
2. To not miss a run (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday)
3. Eat Clean: No gluten, sugar, dairy
4. Do my daily squats for the 30 day challenge
5. Take my dog on at least 2 walks
6. Go to bed before 11
7. 3 Blog Post! 🙂
8. Smile and Enjoy every day!
