Fitness Friday August 22nd Edition!

Today is my Sawyer's 7th birthday!!! I can't believe my little man is already 7 years old!!! It seems like yesterday when he was born! Here are some pics of his last day as a 6 year old!


My mother-in-law called on Wednesday with a great surprise! She got us a condo at the beach this weekend for Sawyer's birthday! Remember when we went for Hayden's birthday? Sawyer was sad we wouldn't be going to the beach for the weekend for his birthday...but now we are!!! It will be a great way to unwind from the busy first week of school!

This week was BUSY! It was the first week of school! So far the boys are loving their teachers! They've come home with smiles on their faces each day! It was also the first week for me! I have a super sweet little pre-k class! It's going to be a great year!



Now it's time for Fitness Friday! It was a lot harder getting in my runs for my run streak this week since I've started back to work. I've gone from running first thing in the morning to running at night. I forgot how much hotter it is running at night in the summertime! But I love my sleep too much and don't want to wake up at 5AM every day to run. So night time and hot it is!

Weight loss this week: 1.1 lbs.
Weight loss total: 29.8 lbs.

This week the running got a little harder. After a full day of teaching it is hard to come home and run on tired legs! And the heat and humidity make a big difference too! It is so very hot in the evenings here. But I got those runs in and kept the streak alive! I'm really thinking day 100 might be the end of streaking for me though. It's just super hard to run every day now that I've started back to work. 

The weight loss is going great! I'm almost to my goal weight! And this next week I'm pretty sure I will reach 30 pounds lost! Wow!!! My DietBet also ended this week! I ended up losing 7.3 pounds during the DietBet (I had to lose 5.1 lbs to reach the 4% goal to win)! So yeah...I won!!! Yay! The DietBet was so much fun and even though I don't need to lose another 4% I'm still hoping to host another one soon. I had fun encouraging everyone along! :-)

Tomorrow I will be running my long run at the beach! The plan is to run 5 or 6 miles. Last time I ran at the beach it was super hot. I have a feeling this time will be hotter. :-( The Gulf Coast is under a heat advisory right now. It's way too hot! And to make matters worse...there is a system out there that they think may enter the gulf and become a hurricane headed our way. :-( Hopefully not...but with the extreme heat the water gets hot and that's breeding ground to make a hurricane stronger. So send some prayers our way please! 

EDIT: They are now predicting the system to turn and NOT enter the Gulf! Yay! But please pray for those that may be affected by this storm!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

QOTD: What was your best workout or run this week? Is is super hot where you live?
