Stick with the program and serious abs

Happy September and back to school!  I’m happy Fall is in the air.  I love seeing the leaves change and having a new change of pace.  I love the harvest decorations, the cooking, and smells of the season!  We are remodeling our yard and peach trees are on the list.  My favorite!

O.K. first matter of business, FOOD!  Our weekend in Heber was a MAJOR stay strong challenge for me.  I don’t want to even talk about all the amazing good food goin’ on up there.  I didn’t cheat once amidst chocolate chip cookie pie, grilled pizza, shakes, and more.  I’m proud of myself and I’m proud of this healthy meal I whipped up last night and then ate today for lunch!

It’s spaghetti squash with pasta sauce and zucchini and a salad with tuna on top.  Did you know that real whole food tastes so much better when you’re not eating processed and sugary food?  I am weird, but my vitamin drink tastes so good to me!  I will say that while everyone was over eating and experiencing stomach pain on our trip, I was feeling great.  No stomach issues.

Next, working out.  I’ve loved my workouts over the past week minus my RUNNING! I’m doing perfect with my eating healthy, but I think I’m eating more like a body builder and less like a runner.  They are not the same!  That’s o.k. I’m going to add more calories 2 weeks before my half. I’ll give a full detail of my eating lifestyle in about 10 days. Let’s just say, I’ve never felt better and all my clothes fit perfect.  The more I lift the more I like it.  It’s my happy place.  This is the workout I did with my church group this week.  I loved the core and abs throughout.  Move fast and get it done in an hour!  We did each exercise for a minute and a half and then rested for 20-30 seconds between sets.  Do each station 3 times before moving to the next station.  My obliques are still sore two days later.
