Fitness Friday...May 30th Edition!

This week was our first official week of summer vacation! Monday was Memorial Day and we spent the day together as a family. I did a little more clothes shopping and then we spent the afternoon at the park and flying kites. The rest of the week we didn't do much...because it has rained the past 3 days!!! My goal of taking the boys swimming this week did not happen due to the weather.

On the bright side though...I've been doing lots of planning and prepping for our trip to California! It takes a lot of effort to go on vacation with kids lol! That includes making a call to the airline to ensure we can all sit together on the planes. Our last flight said there were no seats available and that worried me because I was afraid the flight was overbooked. Luckily the airline picked our seats and put us all together! Whew! It will be my boys' first time flying and I know they are going to want to be sitting by their Momma!

Another plus...I've been doing lots of running this week since the Runner's World Run Streak has begun! This will be my third summer in a row streaking. You may remember when I streaked last year and didn't break the streak while we were on vacation in Disney World! Yes...I plan on continuing the streak while we are in California too. The day we fly home will be a challenge though since our plane leaves pretty early.

Other awesome news...some of you may have seen my post last week about my Garmin starting to flake on me. Well I was scrolling through Facebook a few days later and my friend Kymberly had a status asking if any of her runner friends were interested in her Garmin Forerunner 210. I was definitely interested so I asked her how much she wanted for it. Her response...nothing! She just wanted it to go to someone who would use it! WHAT???? So yes...I am now the proud owner of a almost new (she'd only had it for about a month) Garmin Forerunner 210!!! I LOVE it!!! Thank you so much Kymberly...for the thousandth time!!! It's so awesome that there are people out there that are so giving!

Yes, our first run together was in the rain!

Now it's time for Fitness Friday! Hold on because there was a ton of running done this week! I love streaking!!! (I'm starting with last Friday this week since that was the day I did my long run)

Weight loss this week: 2 lbs.
Weight loss total: 16.8 lbs.

It was a great week of runs! I love to streak! Even running just one mile helps me feel accomplished for that day. My plan is to get a long run of about 5-6 miles in this weekend. There's rain in the forecast so I may be running in the rain again. As far as the running plan while I'm in California goes...I'm going to run at least 1 mile every day to keep the streak going. If I can I will run a few 3 milers while I'm there. I'm not sure if I will be able to run anything longer than that. It all depends on the neighborhood where my friend lives.

The weight loss this week was amazing! I couldn't believe I lost 2 pounds especially since I ate so many lunches out with friends last week! But I'll take it! It's going to be tougher while I'm in California...as I am sure Stephanie is going to want to take me to all of the yummy places to eat! I'm going to try my best to make the healthiest choices I can. I want to make sure to not gain any weight...even if I don't lose any. But continuing to lose will be awesome! :-)

I hope everyone has a great weekend! :-)
