Happy July!

Catching up from June???

I went to Country Fest 2011 with my sister

Our CSA started

I tried wheat berries
My mother-in-law thought I turned 30
I made easy omelets and the best cookies ever

I went to my graduation ceremony

Scott and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary

Scott, Laura and I went to the best garage sale


Ready for July??? I am! Smile 

This morning, Scott and I took Abby our for another early morning run. . . we were trying to beat the heat – it is supposed to be in the upper 90s today!


Unfortunately, it was already 75 degrees and humid out this morning. I was a hot sweaty mess when we got back. We took a couple of rest breaks underneath shady trees for Abby (and me!). We covered about 5 miles.

So, of course, the only thing that sounded good (after drinking a bottle of water)… iced caramel skim latte = hot summer morning perfection! 


Also, a good time to review my June goals and make some new ones!

  • Here are my goals from June:
  • Actually make the wheat berries and eat them! – check!
  • Put quinoa on my grocery list and make it happen – not yet. . .but I have quite a few recipes now that I want to check out so this will happen soon!
  • Shred DVD at least 25 times this month (giving myself 5 days to skip due to working late, like last night, being out of town, etc) – major fail! Only 10 times. . . I haven’t done it in over a week now. I need to get the ball rolling because I really like the way my muscles look when I am doing it on a regular basis. I wish my YMCA offered body pump. . .  oh body pump, I miss you!
  • Spinach in smoothies – ahhhh still scared! and I don’t know how I feel about eating a green smoothie. .. I like the pink color!
  • Continue weekly goals – dropped the ball on this one!
  • Start increasing ‘long run’ distance weekly in preparation for half marathon in August – we did one long-er run (6.75 miles). . . something to keep working on!

Goals for July!

Continue to try new things: quinoa and spinach in smoothies!
Longer weekly runs – at least one run per week over 5 miles
Commit to Shred/strength training 3x/week

I think less is more this month, so I’ll leave it with those 3 goals. . .

What are your goals for July?

Scott and I are heading out to the Lake for the 4th of July weekend, so I’ll see you guys next week. Have a great holiday weekend! Smile

  1. Stop being scared and get that spinach in your smoothie this month!! 🙂

  2. I have some free time this month so my goal is to step up my workouts while I have the opportunity to do so.

    Happy Independence Day to all my American friends! Just a regular weekend here in Ireland 😦
