Fitness Friday...December 30th Edition!

Hey everyone! Sorry I've been absent from blogging this week. My hubby has taken off the week with us and I've been spending time with the family! I know you all understand!

We had a wonderful Christmas! I hope you did too!

Christmas Eve we had fun with our yearly traditions of making cookies, watching Christmas movies, and putting reindeer food out in the front yard!

Yeah...I'm a cookie monster lol! 





The boys racked up and got almost everything they wanted! They were very happy Christmas morning!


Our Christmas tradition is for Andy's family to come on Christmas Eve and stay the night with us so we are all together to open gifts on Christmas morning! It's always so fun having everyone there! 

My sweet boys were super sweet to me this year! They bought me brand new pillows for the couch to match the new colored walls we painted over Thanksgiving! They also bought me a brand new Keurig!!! It's also the color of our walls! 


I've been enjoying it immensely of course!!!


It was fun having everyone over for Christmas! But it was also nice to be able to relax after they left! 


This little (well not so little lol) guy has enjoyed having Daddy home as much as we have!!! No...he isn't spoiled at all!!! ;-)


We also went and saw the new Star Wars movie...Rogue One! We all loved it! But then the next day we learned of Carrie Fisher passing away and it made us so sad.


As you can tell from our pictures...Christmas here in the south has been hot! It was almost 80 degrees on Christmas Day! So we've been in shorts and short sleeve shirts lately! Well...LuLaRoe leggings and short sleeves for me! ;-)



Now it's time for Fitness Friday! I've gotten in all my runs! I even reach day 950 this week! I haven't done any strength training though. I love going to classes and the multi purpose room has been closed for renovations all week. But I will hit it hard again after the new year! 


  • Friday- 2.7 mile run in 21:15 average pace 8:01
  • Saturday- 9.1 mile run in 1:18:53 average pace 8:43
  • Sunday- 3.1 mile run in 24:52 average pace 7:58
  • Monday- 2.6 mile run in 21:21 average pace 8:06
  • Tuesday- 2.7 mile run in 21:25 average pace 8:03
  • Wednesday- 2.7 mile run in 21:20 average pace 8:03
  • Thursday- 2.7 mile run in 21:55 average pace 8:04

It was a great week of runs! The weather was in the 60's and 70's when I was running! I love it! Today the high is in the 50's since we had a cold front come through last night. So my long run will be quite chilly in the morning. 

I have 10 miles on the schedule for tomorrow! It will be good because I intend on splurging at the New Year's Eve party we are going to!!! 

I hope you all have a very Happy New Year! Talk to ya next year!!!

QOTD: What was your best run or workout this week? Is the weather cold or hot where you live?

It's been great having this week off from work! I've loved being with my boys all day!!! They truly are a gift!!! 

We've had dinner with friends this week. Done some shopping. Played some board games. And just had a great time being together! 

We even went and saw Santa! 


The weather was freezing at the beginning of the week. But today we are in the 70's! Crazy southern weather....but I love it!!! 

I had to bundle up warm for a few of my walks this week with Archie!


I also received some fun packages from Kohl's this week! Can you say...home gym??!! Stay tuned for a blog post about that!


And of course I wore a ton of LuLaRoe leggings this week! So comfy and soft!




And...my LuLaRoe business cards came in!!!! It's getting real y'all!!! 


Now it's time for Fitness Friday! I got in all my runs this week AND I even got in one session of strength training!!! Yay! But I was so sore afterwards since it had been 2 weeks since I had been to the gym!

I had a great week of runs! I hit day 944 of my run streak!!! Still going strong! I'm also proud I got in at least one strength training session this week! My gym is redoing the floors so the classes will be cancelled all next week. :-( Doing the class reminded me of how much I love it! 

This week I have 9 miles on my training calendar! I'll be getting that done Christmas Eve morning!!! 

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!!!!

The Weekly Chase #204!

Happy Monday y'all! I'm super happy that I don't have to go to work today!!!! Yay!!!! Perks of being a teacher!!!

We had a great but super busy weekend! Friday night we celebrated being out of school for Christmas Break by having dinner with friends! We ate one of our favorites...Mexican!



After dinner Andy helped me put up my backdrop for my LuLaRoe pictures! 


The lovely ladies in my LuLaRoe VIP group named my mannequin! Her name is Lula Belle!!!


Then we had family game night! We started Monopoly...and have been playing here and there all weekend lol! 


Saturday morning I ran 8 miles! I had a great run although my legs were super tired at the beginning. It was 70 degrees and humid but I was loving the weather! 

After showering I enjoyed Christmas music, coffee, and Archie time in my LuLaRoe holiday leggings! 


Then we did some grocery shopping and Christmas shopping! Later that afternoon I met my friend Kirstin for some afternoon coffee at a new coffee place (yeah it wasn't as good as Starbucks). We were both wearing our LuLaRoe so we needed a pictures of course!



That night we went to Andy's work Christmas party where we ate BBQ and got to watch the Christmas boat parade! It was fun!

Sunday morning Archie ran with me! It was 71 degrees when we started running. But about 30 minutes after we came in the temperature dropped by 20 degrees! 



The rest of the day was spent at my Dad's house for Christmas! It was so great spending time with my family! And I wore my red LuLaRoe leggings to be in the spirit!


Here I am with my two big brothers!!!


And a girl is never too old to sit on her Dad's lap! Love my Dad so much!


It was a great weekend y'all!!!

Now it's time for the Weekly Chase! It's a new week and I have new goals to achieve! I hope you will link up your own goals with me too! And feel free to use the badge below in your post too! You can grab the badge HERE! :-)

Road Runner Girl

Here are my goals from last week!

Goal #1: Run every day! Yes! I reached run streak day 940 this week! 
Goal #2: Roll, stretch, and ice daily. Stretch...yes. Rolling...no.
Goal #3: Maintain my weight by logging my calories. Yes! I was actually down by 1 pound this week which is odd because I haven't been eating the best with all these Christmas parties!
Goal #4: Move 11,000 steps or more each day this week. Yes!

Goal #5: Run at least 1 run under 2 miles. No.
Goal #6: Take at least one walk this week. Yes!
Goal #7: Strength train at least 2 times this week. No. Again...I didn't get this in. It's such a busy time of year! 
Goal #8: Write my Battleship 12K Race Recap. No. Since I'm not working the next two weeks I WILL get this done!
Goal #9: Buy a dirty santa gift for my work Christmas party. Yes! And my gift was a popular one!!! 

Here are my goals for this week!

Every week goals:

Goal #1: Run every day! 
Goal #2: Roll, stretch, and ice daily. 
Goal #3: Maintain my weight by logging my calories.
Goal #4: Move 11,000 steps or more each day this week.

Goal #5: Run at least 1 run under 2 miles.
Goal #6: Take at least one walk this week.
Goal #7: Strength train at least 2 times this week.

Goal #8: Write my Battleship 12K Race Recap. I promise!!!! ;-)

Goal #9: Finish up Christmas shopping. I'm almost done but still have a few last minute things to get. 

Goal #10: Clean my house for Christmas company. Andy's family always comes Christmas Eve and spends the night. I need to get the house clean and ready for them.

So that's the plan this week! Hopefully I will do much better with my goals this week!
