Weekly Workout Wrap-Up

A couple things of note in my workout summary for the week (checkout my workout review for Jillian Michaels and Booty Barre here). 1. I took a rest day! An actual, zero activity, rest day. I woke up feeling a bit down so instead of working out I did this:

2. I MET MY 5k GOAL FOR SEPTEMBER! You can see by our 'current pace' (when I took this snapshot of Runkeeper) of just under 7 minutes that we were killing it in the end to make it in under 35 minutes. Ironically, this run started off terrible, but clearly turned out to be my best! Matt actually ran a 5k by himself this week and came in at 32 minutes. Show off.

I'm so happy to have met this goal and will talk about it more (along with whether or not I reached my other fitness goals) once this month is officially over (I'm such a tease).

One thing I've been totally obsessed with this week:

How old school is this? The color is actually nice and it doesn't taste like plastic like many of the other cheap glosses do. I'm a lip-gloss connoisseur btw. I seriously have no less than 3 on me at all times. Matt actually forgot to put mine in the backpack before we went hiking last time and I almost spazzed on him. Seriously, not cute.

I came across a few great blog posts this past week, definitely check them out if you have the time! I'm starting to save great posts as I read them so I can share them on Fridays. I don't have an official 9-5 anymore but when I did I spent most of Friday afternoon finding stuff aside from work to take up my time!

Tina from Carrotts and Cake talks about the difference between training and draining (something I wasn't listening to at the start of this week, hence my crappy run!)

Amanada shows how to calculate your RMR (Resting Metabolic Rate) to help understand how many calories you should be eating. She even had hers officially tested and now I'm on the hunt for a place that will do that in Pensacola for me!

Finally, not a blog post but something I found interesting, this Anti-Obesity commercial has sparked a ton of controversy. What do you think about it?


I hope you all have a wonderful Friday. I have so many great things planned to do, make, and eat this weekend and can't wait to share them with you next week!
