Health and Fitness Friday!

It's time again for another Health & Fitness Friday, the last one of March!  I really hope the weather starts to improve soon because I am getting rid of my gym membership in a few weeks.  We always join the gym in November and only stay through April, because Mark and I both know we won't go in the summer when we would rather run outside!  

So, let's talk fitness!  Here is my training schedule this week:

Mon- 3 miles Complete!
Tues- 4 miles Complete!
Wed- 3 miles + yoga Complete!
Thurs- Cross Walked the dog 2.5 miles...complete!
Friday- 8 miles Heading to the gym to do that in a few minutes!  
Sat- Yoga Will probably go for a recovery jog tomorrow morning instead since we'll be out of town.
Sun- cross Most likely resting and eating!

I'm not going to lie, I am nervous for my long run today.  Just like I always am!  I skipped it last week because I was too busy with work, so of course my confidence is down.  

As far as health goes, this week's healthy eating plan has been pretty good!  We are trying to save some money for our upcoming trip (3 weeks!!!) so I've been trying to cut back on the grocery bill.  Consequently, we've been eating lots of sandwiches/salads for dinner, which is something I can feel good about!  On the other hand, I've eaten almost 2 large bags of jellybeans in the last week.  AND with the upcoming holiday, I know things are about to go downhill.  I always overdo it on holidays, especially when we visit my in-laws- there are just too many treats around!  Including the raspberry white chocolate cheesecake I'm bringing.  Calories don't count on holidays, right?  Right.  Ok good.  I'll post that recipe soon!

Happy Easter everyone, have a great weekend!


  1. We will hit 50 degrees tomorrow. I'm so excited to run outside without feeling like my ears are going to fall off.

  2. I'm off work and I'm about to hit the pavement for my first outdoor run of the season. I CANNOT wait!!! :-D Good luck on your 8 miler... I'll probably end up running 3-4 though I know I should run a longer distance. I have my first 10K tomorrow and I'm just a TAD anxious!

    Have a great holiday weekend, Katie :-)

  3. Calories do NOT count on holidays. Haha! I'm with ya on the jelly beans too my friend. So bad!!! Well I hope your long run went well yesterday!!! I always felt the same way about my long runs when I was training! I hope you have a great Easter with your family sweetie!!! Thanks for linking up as always!!!
