Phew. How is it not Friday?! I guess because I never really got a weekend, I’m in desperate need for a break. Luckily, tonight I will get some quality time with a good friend of mine who has been traveling a lot. Cannot wait for girls night!!
So what’s new?
Well, I pretty much killed my 60 minute run on Saturday.
I really surprised myself with my pace. It felt so amazing and I felt accomplished. Nothing like an amazing run :)
My theory for this whole me getting faster is a bit complex and since I haven’t had the time to fully research it now, I’ll just share my theory and provide the support for y’all at a later date! So yea, my theory: speed work with Heather, the weight I’ve been losing through the Tone It Up Bikini Series and these beauties …
I’m not exaggerating when I say I shaved between 5-10 seconds on my runs since I’ve started wearing these Newtons. I swear they were made for me. I feel like I’m flying when I run and I love it!!
So, I mentioned above about the weight I’ve been losing throughout the Tone It Up Bikini Series … y’all, I am down SIX pounds since starting!! I feel amazing and am starting to see the difference in my body. I haven’t been at weight I am right now in over a year, am proud of how far I’ve come, and am motivated to keep pushing these next few weeks to reach my goals!! I have about 5-7 more pounds I would like to lose and with 6 more weeks left in the Bikini Series, my goals are within reach!!
Why do I think I’ve been so successful? It’s all of the support from the Tone It Up community (via Instagram, Facebook and Twitter) and my Tone It Up partner, Heather. These girls are filled with passion and motivation. Everyone pushes everyone else to be their best. It’s quite amazing <3
Oh! And one more thing I wanted to share … look who got a little haircut.
… and by haircut, I mean shaved. Sydney’s new look has given her such a burst of energy (did not know that was even possible, so friend’s watch out) and a lot more spunk. Think I’m making this up?! Nope, I have proof!!
I think she likes this new rat look. Hehe.
Before I go, here is my workout schedule for the week. I love sharing it because it holds me accountable, and while I don’t do or get in everything exactly as planned, I still get ‘er done as best as I can and as much as my body can handle!
