Saturday morning kicked off bright and early. I woke up at 5:30am to get in Jillian 6 Week Six Pack Level 2 work out pre 6 mile run with my Sole Sistas Running group. My pace goals for next year are to increase in speed- big time. I'd really like to run a sub two hour half in in October (this is a common goal for a lot of new/speed focused runners), so I'll need to work extra hard in the off season to significantly increase my pace, if I want to shave nearly 10 minutes off my previous time.
Our run group this week was small, and I ran with two ladies that are stronger runners, and I hung with them the entire time. I kinda had to as I didn't have a route map, so I was dependent for directions! Never the less, I hung with the fast crowd-What's up holler! I keep thinking this increased speed has been some type of a fluke. That I'm going to start running in the 10 pace group again, but I just keep getting faster! I still don't know what my comfortable pace is has my times are consistently increasing. All good signs! We had a really nice 6 mile run, chatting and cutting up the whole run. I'm hooked on my booty burner play list, and it's making me move my tush!
Saturday night it was time to have some I wish I was still in college fun. My dear friend Susannah was in town from NOLA and we never miss an opportunity to get together for some fun! I was able to rock out another fun outfit from my favorite Charly and Company! We had an awesome night out together with almost all of our favorite people in tow!
While Saturday night was incredibly FUN, I made a few (understatement) eating mistakes. I started drinking without eating. (Amateur!). Consequently, when I was starving, insert drunken melodrama, I didn't care WHAT I ate. See eating down ward spiral that continued into Sunday! Womp womp! This may have happened-
|Denial- It ain't just a river in Egypt honey!+|
|Ultimate Nachos- They were pretty dang Ultimate|
True confessions: Eating poorly was delicious and worth it. Sometimes splurging is necessary for my sanity. True story, however, back on track today! Refocus, recharge. One bad day does not equal a free for all, back at it Monday morning with a delicious Green Monster- Esque smoothie. Feeling better already!

A few changes this week, I'm bringing back the every other day carb/no carb challenge for myself. It's worked well for me in the past, and I have to wear a swim suit this weekend so I'm going to work extra hard this week. I'm enjoying 6 Week Six Pack so I'm keeping it in rotation for a little longer. Unless I have time to make it down to Target and pick up another Jillian ab DVD. That girl knows her stuff!
TWO rest days this week. I'm going to be out of town this weekend for some much needed R & R with the gal pals. I'm not going to work out, but I am going to swim...over to the swim up bar. Ba dum cha! Hope you have a great week peeps!
