I don’t know about you, but I always look forward to a little Memorial Day Weekend getaway. This year, we’re in St. George (UT) again. It’s the closest distance to palm trees from where we live and the hot sunshine does my soul some good. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a nice, LONG weekend!
Here’s my workout progress this week + weekend-workout forecast (week 4):

Monday PM: 3-mile run
Tuesday PM: 4-mile run
Wednesday: Null (late night at the office)
Thursday: Null (no excuse here)
Friday: 4.5-mile run
Saturday: 5-mile run (in St. George!)
Sunday: possible 3-4-mile run (in St. George!)

On Monday I’ll be starting another challenge (at “week 1”) and revamping my goals for the next 6 weeks. My sister is doing a similar challenge so we’re planning to keep each other motivated and on track (there’s no replacement for a positive support group). I’ll continue to share updates on my workouts each Friday and let you in on some details about my meal plan. Mostly, I want to give you a reason to believe you can make changes and improvements, too. But only if you want to. So I’ll share what inspires me and why I feel it’s worth it to always keep trying.

  3. Jealous! We usually hit St. George sometime in the spring, but since our baby is due this weekend, we're kind of stuck at home, waiting for her to make her appearance. Love your outfit though – canvas sneaks with girly looks are kind of my favorite right now!

  11. I don't mind working out hard but I hate having to eat healthy. UGH. I don't eat terribly but I want to have a glass of wine every now and then and my weakness is goldfish. I tried running a few weeks ago but hurt both of my ankles so I started riding my bike instead. I can go a lot further on a bike than I could running too. Good luck with your fitness goals!
