Weekly Review #5 plus some changes

Why hello there! Long time eh?
I've been one of those silent readers again. I've also been thinking of some changes I want to make to this blog so stay tuned because the best is yet to come!..At least, better things.

I'd like to try out a link-up or two each week to keep my blogging juices flowing and write more from the heart & mind instead of random babblings from my day. I'd also like to write more about the ups and downs of parenting.

Another idea floating around in this brain of mine is I'm thinking about hosting a 30 day self love challenge. Of course an awesome prize will be involved. ;-) More details on that soon!

Anyway, onto my weekly review! (With some random photos added in between so I don't bore you to death)

I haven't been eating as "clean" as I did during my thirty days (unless taco bell counts as clean eating..) but I'm still at the same weight so that's good!

Monday: Run-2 miles at the highschool track. 18:11 Not too shabby but I want to work on keeping my pace in the 8:30-8:45 range. My IT band has been tight lately so it a affecting my knee again. Time to increase my time with the foam roller!

Tuesday: 1 mile warm up, 55 calf raises w/20#, 25 squats w/20#, 70 resisted kickbacks w/65#, 40 prone leg raises w/65#, 30 sit-ups.

I didn't take many photos this week so I'll share this one of Michael trying to do a head stand. He did much better than I did!

Wednesday: 2 miles, 50 calf raises w/20#, 25 squats w/20#, planks, leg lifts

Thursday: Yoga on our deck. This was so relaxing! I was inspired to do yoga outside when Fit Approach challenged us to do something different. I did some yoga out in our yard but it was a bit hot. So the next morning I did yoga on our deck in the early morning. Loved it!

Two mammoth sunflowers! 

Friday: Run-just over 3 miles.

Saturday: Run-2 miles. I ran 10 miles this week! Really happy about that!

Sunday: Rest/stretch.

Love this! (My background, not my quote)

I hope everyone had a nice weekend!
By the way, school starts Monday! Its a bitter sweet time. My little girl will be starting kindergarten : -( and my son will be a sixth grader! How did that happen??


  1. Yoga on the deck sounds great! And the upcoming changes on your blog sound cool. I love the idea of a self live challenge.

    1. I'm really enjoying outside yoga! It's so refreshing!

  2. I love the background and the quote! Don't say taco bell in front of me.... It's my weakness. This weekend for me was filled with pizza and cupcakes and Chinese. But I'm getting back on track now. Can't wait to see all the changes. I would definitely be interested in your ups and downs of motherhood. I know I'm not alone.

    1. Thanks!
      Taco bell is the only fast food place I can eat and not feel guilty! Weird huh?
      I get bored easily so I don't want my readers to get bored! I just wish we would hurry up and get internet again so I don't have to blog from my phone! That's a main reason why I don't post often. :-/

  3. I am excited to see your new blog changes:) I already love your blog, but I think your like me in the sense, that sometimes it's just fun to change things up!
    I was doing so well on my healthy eating too, until the last 2 weeks, but started yesterday I am bound and determined to get back on track:)

    1. Thanks!
      I get bored easily so I have to switch things up every now and then! That's why I love your blog because you post about several different topics
      : -)


I enjoy hearing from everyone so please, leave a comment!
