I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July! We did! We missed Andy and Hayden but had fun with friends! We ate homemade pizza, salad, fruit, and yummy cake!!! Then we even made it home in time to go into the backyard and watch the city's fireworks! So fun!
Tuesday we went to the pool. The pool was closing that afternoon for a swim meet but we got there in time to have a few hours of swimming. About 15 minutes before they were supposed to close it started thundering and lightning and we had to get out early. It made for a rainy drive home! But we were thankful for the sun and swim time we had!
Wednesday we went shopping for a little while. Then we made a Starbucks stop of course!!!
Thursday I went to Kirstin's house while Sawyer was at gymnastics. Her daughter Maddy opened the door when I got there and welcomed me to our "girl's luncheon!" They had cooked a broccoli and cheese quiche, caesar salad, and fruit salad for lunch! Maddy even had classical music playing in the background! It was awesome and so sweet!!!
After lunch we watched the new Cinderella movie since they had never seen it! Such a fun afternoon!
Now it's time for Fitness Friday! I got in all my runs this week, walked every day, AND got in some strength training too!

So that was my week! I was so proud to get in 3 strength training sessions! I'm LOVING the gym! And it's been fun having my friends Kirstin and Jim to workout with this week since Andy is out of town.
My runs went great this week. It's been super hot and humid. Getting up early isn't helping in beating the heat because at 6:00AM there is still a feels like temperature in the 90's! It seems like it has been so much hotter this summer than it usually is.
This weekend I'm planning on running 5-6 miles. Last week I could only get in 5 miles because it was just way too hot. I'm also planning on doing the Body Pump class Saturday morning after my run. It was a great class and I really enjoyed it!
I hope everyone has a great weekend! I can't WAIT to see Andy and Hayden when they get home tomorrow!!!!
