Happy Summer Morning!! Today we were at the track. It’s always nice to see so many people out exercising in the summer months. I wish I could run more with my friends! We run all winter and through the school year just waiting for shorts weather and then everyone is out of town and running kids around. It’s hard for all of us to get together. I’m glad we have the track each week and the trail! Here they are this morning. AWESOME! I love this picture!!! I had them sprinting a lot this morning. Usually I do the workout, but today I held the watch and then went and did legs at the gym (:
MINUTE TO WIN IT DRILLS

Every minute on the minute you have to run to the 30 yd. line and back and continue doing KETTLE BELLS until you reach 150.

I know people don’t believe me, but I feel like a slacker lately in my diet and exercise. Not so much with exercise. My weakness is EATING HEALTHY ALL THE TIME!!! I stayed up last night and wrote a few goals down for the next month. I want to get to 125. Here is the plan:
Eat ALL healthy ALL the time (: No white flour or white sugar. 1 gallon of water a day. No eating past 8:00 p.m. Eat every 2-3 hours. Keep a Food Journal. Weigh once or twice a week.
I think what’s hard for me is planning. I need to know what I’m eating every day AND get my butt to the store a little more often so I’m well stocked. One thing I want to ALWAYS remember in my strict dieting is to NOT cut out any food groups. Even dairy is getting a bad rap these days. I think string cheese, cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, plain or greek yogurt are probably GOOD for me! I’m o.k. with drinking almond milk instead of regular milk because it’s WAY lower in sugar.
I have a (: reward for me at 129 and when I hit 125 I’ll be running in my booty shorts! I forget sometimes that I have a goal and I rationalize in my brain that I can take a break and I’m not going to do that for JULY!!
KEEP MOVING. CREATE YOUR LIFE. SMILE. Hit it Hard.
