Weekly Check-in (Friday Thoughts)

This week has honestly been really good. Aside from being extremely emotional from various things going on it was a lot of fun and super productive. There was lots of exercise, and healthy food and some good times with friends.

One highlight that I want to touch on is the Full Moon Run at Inspiration Point in the Berkeley Hills. I think technically it is Orinda but I will always associate it with Berkeley.

First we started the night off with a few photo’s courtesy of my wonderful friend Emily(these photos are at the top), check out her blog. She is going to start training for another Ironman soon so she will be updating soon, but she has some great posts on her last Iron(WO)man that she did in August.

It was a fun night except when we had to turn back because there was a mountain lion on the road! Ahh! We were  a little scared but since I don’t run that fast I didn’t actually see the mountain lion (thank god!)

October Goals Weekly Check in!

I swear, making things pink just makes them better, am I right or am I right? (Don’t answer that 😉 )

Here are what my goals are for October

October Goals!

  • lose 3-4 pounds– Well this week I have a pretty big drop, 4.2 to be exact. So I am going to try to set the goal of losing 2 more pounds by November 3rd. (I am secretly hoping for more)
  • strength train 2 days a week with my running training– So far so good, I have been strength training at least 2 days a week the past 2 weeks, I was thinking of kicking it up a notch to 3 times a week but we will see if I can fit that in.
  • relax and enjoy life even if it means not losing weight that week– This is always a tough one, I have picked up knitting again and reading more so I think that is good ways to relax.
  • cook 1 dinner a week– Last night I made the wraps, and I am making a Meatball Skillet tonight!
  • Don’t worry about what happened yesterday, focus on today– slowly but surely I am making my way towards this.

Running Recap

As you can see from the pictures I did the night run on Wednesday, documented proof I am being a bad-ass this week ;P

Sunday- 5 Miles with the Lovely Katie

Monday- Rest because I just got my tattoo on Sunday

Tuesday- 4 Mile run! I killed this run, seriously! I am not going to put my time up because real runners will think I am lame but I was amazing for me hehe.

Wednesday- Night run about 40 minutes.

Thursday- Weight lifting  class at the gym.

Friday- Rest day because I want to hehe.

Saturday- Crosstraining circuit workout with the beautiful Kim!

I am feeling really good about this week and my schedule. We are also watching an adorable puppy this weekend, and I am going to see the play Little Shop of Horrors. I am super excited! I will try to be good and post about all the fun shinnanigans I have this weekend.

What do you have planned this weekend?
