This week was not too bad! It was a 4 day work week so that's always appreciated!
We enjoyed being off on Monday! The weather was gorgeous! I enjoyed a wonderful run that morning. Then that afternoon we went hiking with our friends Kirstin, Jim, and their daughter Maddy. The only thing that would have made it better would have been having Andy with us. He had to work. :-(
After our hike the kids went back to Kirstin's house for ice cream sundaes. Kirstin and I stopped by Starbucks for coffee for the adults! :-)
This week I also got new running shoes! My new beloved Asics finally arrived! I was in desperate need of these new shoes. I was 100 miles over my normal mileage on my old shoes. It was time! I wear Asics GT 2000 2's. The newest model is the 2000 4 but I will buy the 2000 2's until I can't find them anymore. I LOVE them! And yes...I could only find the neon yellow color...it's the same color I've had the past 3 times I've gotten new shoes lol! But that's ok...I like the bright color!
Check out the cute coffee warmer I got this week! My coffee is always getting cold in the mornings! I end up putting it in the microwave to warm it up. So when I found this coffee warmer online at Target I knew I had to have it! It does an amazing job of keeping my coffee warm! I love it!
Now it's time for Fitness Friday! I had a great week of runs! I was really proud of my 10 mile run this past week! It had been a while since I had run a double digit run!

I had a great week of runs! My new shoes have helped my hamstring feel so much better! But the weather has been crazy! It went from chilly to super cold to hot all in one week! That's pretty normal here on the Gulf Coast though!
This weekend is a rest week so I only need to run 6 miles. Because of our busy weekend I really don't have time for much more than that. Hopefully I will have a great run! I'm running tomorrow morning and the wind is going to be 20 mph! Yikes!
Also...I'm hosting another Dietbet! You bet $35 that you will lose 4% of your weight in 28 days. If you lose the 4% then you win part of the pot! It's an awesome way to motivate yourself to lose those extra pounds! I did several Dietbets when I was losing my weight and it really motivated me. I won a little over $50 my first Dietbet! I'd love for you to join us and play!!! Go HERE to sign up! I promise it will be the most fun you've ever had losing weight!
Happy weekend everyone! I hope it's a great one for you!!!
