A happy thought for your morning:
Menchie’s signs are so inspirational.
Also inspirational? Watching people do the 100 meter dash to make it in there before it closes at 10PM. Fro yo is a huge motivator!!
New flavor tonight — blackberry!! Mixed with some strawberry shortcake, dulce de leche, and cake batter.
Run 6 x 800s (.49 miles) + 2 minutes recovery
Ouch. That was tougher than I expected. I covered 4 miles including the recovery time, jogged a half mile of stairs, and then booked it home. I’m not liking the way this looks for my 5k on Saturday. I think my time is going to be ugly.
Still turning into a sweet potato!! With leftover grilled chicken tenders.
The poor, deprived Boykin pleading for a bite. (Yes, I ate in bed. 2PM lunches in bed are becoming quite the habit these days).
Why he didn’t get a bite:
Look at that face. Trying to convince me he hasn’t been doing anything wrong. Yeah, right!!!!
We were invited over to some friends’ house tonight so I got the easy job making the salad.
A little tomato + mozz + basil for some caprese flavor. And done!!
They live seriously less than 2 blocks away. I am so loving this! After we enjoyed a delicious dinner (chicken parm!), they brought out some games:
Animal Upon Animal is actually a game designed for Pre-K, but we definitely had a blast playing it. I was, by far, the worst player and managed to knock the entire structure over several times. Kevin dominated the first game! No one exactly won round two, but we got it impressively high! I think it would be an awesome classroom game! I was thinking of so many ideas for it while we were playing.
And now for the big news: I’m going to fitmixer BOOT CAMP!! It’s starts on my birthday, September 10th!!
I read about a lot of bloggers doing it, and it sounded like so much fun! I was dying to try it. Plus I want to try that protein! It wouldn’t hurt if I lost a few vanity/training pounds along the way. It will definitely help to be consistently committed for 8 weeks. I’m totally motivated by peer pressure!!
Guess who’s joining with me?
My cuñada, Lisa! Unfair picture, I know. She’s pregnant!! Lol. But now she’s not! And I have a baby niece to show for it! (Plus two nephews!) I wanted a friend to do it with me, and I knew she wanted to get back into working out. I figured this was the perfect way to do it. I totally did not have permission to post this, but I’m sure she’ll consider it an honor. Haha.
By the way, if you’re curious, as I understand it, the boot camp is all online. You can read more about it on their website, but you get set up with an RD, they send you at-home workouts, and there’s a lot of fun & accountability. Can’t wait to get cracking! I guess I’ll be eating my birthday cake on September 9! But we’ll be svelte for the holidays. I think there’s still spots open if you’d like to join!! You get a ton of awesome products just for signing up, and who wouldn’t want more interaction with me?
Have you ever done a boot camp or organized exercise challenge? Nothing very official.
P.S. I have to share this awesome tank top Brita posted on my Facebook:
Eat Sleep Burpee tank! I need that, right????
