This week was a busy one! It was red ribbon week at the boys' school. So they got to do all kinds of silly things. Monday they wore red, Tuesday was crazy hair day, Wednesday was silly sunglasses, Thursday was silly socks, and today they had to disguise themselves so they wore their Halloween costumes! They've had a blast this week!
It was busy at my school too! We had community helpers that came to visit as well as emergency vehicles. We also had silly hat day on Wednesday and had a hat parade! The preschoolers were so cute in their hats! It was fun! Here is one of my co-workers and me in our silly hats! I LOVE being a preschool teacher!!!
This week I also had my weekly coffee date with my sister Christy! I love getting to hang out with her at least once a week! It's awesome having her live so close!
I also got a super fun package in the mail yesterday! My best friend Stephanie (the one we went to San Francisco this summer to visit) sent me something for my birthday!
She knows how much I love my coffee cups and I wanted to buy one when I was visiting her but was afraid it would get broken on my travels home. So she sent me one for my birthday!!! It is PERFECT because it has all of the things we visited when we were there visiting...The Painted Ladies, trolley car, skyline, and the Golden Gate Bridge! I LOVE it!!!!
Now it's time for Fitness Friday! The streak still lives on! But I tried to take it easy this week. As I mentioned before, there is a tight knot in my calf that is hurting. I know it's because I've been pushing my runs so much the last two weeks with the sub 2 half and the back to back 5K's. So this week I ran only one milers to keep the streak alive and try to give my body some recovery time.
- Friday- #plankaday 1:05, Trick or Trot 5K in 25:23 average pace 8:10...3rd in my AG

- Monday- #plankaday 1:30, 1.15 mile run in 10:03 average pace 8:45
- Tuesday- #plankaday 1:30, 1.15 mile run in 10:13 average pace 8:51
- Wednesday- #plankaday 1:31, 1.16 mile run in 10:01 average pace 8:39
- Thursday- #plankaday 1:16, 1.16 mile run in 9:48 average pace 8:28
The runs went fine this week! I wanted to run more but knew I needed to take it easy for my calf's sake. I could feel the calf when I was running so it was probably a good thing I only ran one milers. Hopefully the calf will loosen up soon. I've been doing lots of rolling, stretching, and icing. I don't have time for this lol!
I've been doing well with my eating. I've gotten a little closer to reaching the high end of my calories to maintain. That's good because I actually lost a pound last week. I don't need to lose any more! So I'm just trying to find the right balance. I definitely don't want to fall into those bad habits I had before the weight loss.
The DietBet I'm hosting is going strong!!! There's still time to join in if you want! We are having a lot of fun and everyone is very motivational!
We have a full weekend planned! Tonight Andy's parents, sister, and my sister are all coming over to celebrate Andy's birthday, carve pumpkins, and trick or treat! It will be fun!
Then tomorrow morning I am starting my birthday off with a 10K race! Hopefully the calf will do well and allow me to run strong. Then I'm not sure what the rest of the day will hold but I'm excited because it's my birthday!!!!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!
