Happy Sunday! Oh yeah, and can you believe it is the first day of December? 

Where did November go!? I guess traveling for half the month had something to do with it!


I started the morning off with some coffee and CLICK protein powder.

I am telling you if you aren’t a fan of normal coffee flavorings or are looking for a change trying adding protein powder to your coffee – it is really good!

Since it is Sunday it is time for a recap of this week’s workouts:

– Test Run #1 and Spinning

Test Run 1: 1.25 slow miles outside on the grass.

I then went to the gym and did 30 minutes on the spin bike and worked the abs a bit.

I then walked for 30 minutes for a total of an hour on the treadmill.

I followed this up with some upper body weights, a few squats, and some ab work and stretching before calling it a day.

I am really noticing a difference now that I am making a point to focus on strength training at least 3 days a week.

– Rest


Week Recap:

Rest Days – 2

Workout Days – 5


I am not going to get ahead of myself but I am feeling a LITTLE more confident after another week of very positive test runs.

I have a long way to go. I still need to perfect and work on my form. I HAVE to fix the mistakes I made before so I don’t have a repeat. My form and strength training along with proper nutrition are my biggest focuses right now.

The only thing I wish is that the weather would cooperate a little bit better! The more it snows the harder it is for me to run outside on grass.


The rest of our night was pretty low key.

I caught this little girl laying on our bed. Zoe normally is not allowed up there, but we let her up ONCE on Thanksgiving and now she thinks she owns the place.

Are you sick of seeing pictures of my dog yet? Sorry…. she’s my child so I kind of like her. :)


We hung out at home after dinner and watched a few movies on Netflix.

Oh yea, and took some goofy pictures.

It was pretty much a perfect Saturday night. 


How was your training this week?

Runners – do you focus on strength training or form drills at all?
