Recaps Recaps and Goals!

Alright I am going to recap my weekend, my workouts (or lack there of), and my goals for this week.

Workout Recap - (Totally stole this from Vanessa!)
Monday 5/9 - 5 miles @8:51 pace, Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones
Tuesday 5/10 - 6 Miles @ 8:43 pace
Wednesday - 4.0 miles @ 9:25 pace, Ab Video
Thursday - 7 miles @ 8:48 pace
Friday - 3.1 miles @ 8:36 pace
Saturday - 15 miles @ 9:50 pace

*I think I did well running, but um where are those strength training sessions?
This week my goals are 3 strength (Jillian videos, no gym here!) and 2 sessions just abs
I'm going to run less but I don't know how much less, I'm planning on 8-10 miles for my long run and Friday off.

Weekend Recap:
Friday night was the same old thang... eating cookies using my morning run as an excuse.
Saturday morning I ran all around my town, I saw a Deer, like right next to me, it was so pretty.
I used map my run and it was really cool because I could see the elevation for all the hills I went up. I think running downhill is harder for me than uphill.
After my run I ate, showered, and napped
Than I cleaned...
went to the mall...
Fed the kids dinner and to bed they went...
hubby and I went to Buckhead for a super cool date night...

It was this Moroccan restaurant and it was really really cool. I know the pics are lame, but it was dark. That one on the right is of the belly dancer. We sat in these little chairs almost on the floor and the decor made you feel like you were in a tent in the dessert.

Sunday morning we drove to the farmer's market and spent $77.00 on fruits and veggies, smh.
That includes no milk, yogurt, meat, or bread. Ughhh I can't afford to eat! I'm really trying to trim the food budget but I don't know where to trim from. By the end of the week we are literally out of food. I have little kids and they love dairy so I can't cut that, we eat very very little meat, I don't buy soda, chips, or snacks... I don't even really buy frozen food. I don't know... hopefully produce will be cheaper during the summer because everything will be in season.

I made a vegetable lasagna for dinner, it was soooooo amazing. I used mushrooms, onion, garlic, zucchini, yellow squash, broccoli, and spinach. I'm glad it turned out so well because we will be eating it for the next 3 days!
All in all I had a very nice weekend. Except I'm really mad at the Yankees, I don't even wanna talk about it. Not cool NYY!

I wanna do a q&a post, so if you read my blog please please please comment and ask me a question. Any question... I think it will be fun!!!


  1. Hell yes you did great running! I think, especially because you have so much extra time on your hands, ;) that you need to grow your own veggies. Those farmers markers get crazy $$$.

  2. Haha we tries that last year!!!
    We spent like 200 on our "garden" and yielded like 2 tomatoes!
    We not very good farmers

  3. Great week of running! Seriously, your pace is getting faster even as I've been reading your blog--that's awesome! Don't feel bad about taking the recap idea--I definitely stole it from at least 10 other bloggers too!

    My question: do you follow a set training plan for running or make your own? I'd love to see what a week look like (hills, speed, tempo, etc. )

  4. VEGGIE LASAGNA!!! YUM!! Girl, you are so gorgeous! I eat cookies every night...whether I run or not:)

    My question is....How did you get into such amazing shape after kids!?!?!

  5. Hey, I am a new follower...The Veggie Lasagna sounds good!

  6. Whoa belly dancers at dinner?? :)
    Nice job on running!!
