week 7 recap

Week 7 Recap:

April 19 - 25


Monday: 30 minute. Due to my schedule I literally had no time for anything other than 30 minutes of running. I didn't even have time for a warm-up or cool down.

Tuesday: I went to visit awesome friend Jen and here precious bebes! They live about an hour away which means that I didn't get home until 7 p.m. I still had to get lunch and clothes ready for work and spend some quality time with the hubby and therefore didn't XT. There are no excuses for not cross-training but I'm not upset about it since this never happens. I did dance to songs on Yo Gabba Gabba with a toddler, is that a form of XT?

Wednesday: 40 minutes total (30 running). It was a great day. There were rumblings of thunder, crazy storm clouds, and the air felt electric. What a great day to be a runner.

Thursday: Happy Earth Day!!! My mom would sometimes take this day off of work because it was a special day. I grew up with motto "Earth Day is everyday"
Yoga Abs & Mrytle

Friday: Rest Day! it's funny because when I started training I hated taking a rest day. Now I feel like I need it.

Saturday: 10 miles!! total time 2:27 hours

Sunday: Yoga Abs, Mrytle, and shopping! wait, does walking around retail stores for hours count as XT?


This week started poorly. My husband and I made lots of poor food choices on Monday. It's still hard for me to not eat junk when he brings it home. I think it was easier when I wasn't training. Now I'm so tired all of the time I will just eat anything. Luckily the rest of the week was better. After my initial weight loss I have just hit this plateau where I eat too much or too little. I wasn't concerned about what I ate in the beginning because I wanted training to be my main focus. I think after vacay next week I will try to plan my meals better. I still 16.2 pounds. How crazy is that? You would think I would have lost a little more after I ran 10 miles yesterday!


  1. I love the "Earth Day is Everyday" motto!

  2. It would def be easier if Cam didn't eat any junk food or processed crap...I def know how you feel!!

  3. I know Krystal! Half of the time I don't even want it but its just there. Like the stupid cereal! Its not even bad cereal (special k and cherrios) but I swear I am like an addict when it comes to cereal and I eat bowl after bowl for like 30 minutes lol. Plus, I never have milk anymore unless of course I am eating an insane about of cereal, therefore my stomach gets all bloated. stupid cereal! he's going to have to hide it from me lol

    vern- i really appreciate all of the "green" habits my mom instilled in me. Its funny how trendy it now is to re-use bags and water bottles. Back then people thought we were weird lol!
