C25K Milestone, Wedding, Out with Friends

Thanks for your sweet comments about my video – I’m really enjoying making them!! I hope you all had wonderful weekends – mine was so fun!! It started out with a GREAT Friday you guys! Just worked, walked 2.5 miles during lunch + upper body ST + abs – did this circuit again.


Then after work I went over to our parent company’s gym planning to do C25K… and I did it you guys! Week 8, Workout #1 – 28 minutes straight at 6.3! I was SO pumped! I walked it out to get to 3.5 miles burning 213 calories in 35 minutes. I’m pretty THRILLED – I just can’t believe that two months ago a 5-minute run was daunting… now I feel like I can just GO! I’m on a cloud – perhaps it’s the endorphins! LOL After the workout I showered/got ready at the gym, picked up some sushi and hit up Monica/Andy’s house to visit with them and to see Katie and Kevin and baby Cullen in town from NC! They are doing so well and look awesome – SO good to see them and to see little man. And Lauren was there too – haven’t seen her in too long – great night. Austin came over to meet us too, and then me and him headed home around 11 or so.

Lauren, Katie, Mon, Me and Reuben!

Happy Friday indeed! I ended up at 1,785 calories, 176 carbs, 45 fat grams and 88 protein grams. Here’s what I ate.

Saturday was a great day! Woke up early feeling great to a beautiful day! Got ready, had a brunch pizza square, hit up BB&B for a wedding gift, stopped by Kroger to get more Claritin and headed down to Dallas, Ga., for a wedding of an old high school friend! So good to catch up with great friends in town from NY and Savannah! The wedding was sweet – great to see Tony get married! Then we headed home and Lindsey and Josh followed to stay over! We sat outside and had some drinkies, then Tyson, Jennifer, John, Jeff, his GF and two of their friends came over and it was time to go eat! We hit up Felinni’s then went to Buckhead to meet up with Mary and Scott – great night, good times at Fado and Park Bench! We stayed up way too late of course but I sure enjoyed our night and had fun chatting, dancing and catching up with everyone!


Jen, John, Lindz, Josh and Tys - we all went to high school together! :)

With Mary and Scott - love them!

Tys, Mar, Me and John at Fado!

The Lacoste boys - LOL - Tys and Scott had on the same one - this happens too frequently!

Lindz, Me and Jen

Austin and Tys!


They were apparently REALLY into that song! Too cute!


I ended up at 2,315 calories, 136 carbs, 79 fat grams and 60 protein grams. Here’s what I ate and drank.

Today I just got up, cooked breakfast for me/Austin/Tyson/Lindsey and Josh, sent them off, did laundry, made a meal plan, hit up the grocery store and now I’m reading! Great day so far! It’s another pretty one for sure.

How was your weekend?

What’s your favorite thing to do on Sundays?!

Great pictures. I spent 2 hours preparing food and cooking for the week. That is my normal Sunday afternoon. Not fun but saves tons of time.

GREAT job on the run! And I always LOVE your weekend pics! You already know that I sometimes secretly imagine that I live in your house. Well, I sometimes also imagine that I get to sneak out with you for just an hour or so... :)

I love it when I get meal prep work and grocery shopping done on Sundays (which I didn't get done today...). But we had a great time at the park with the toddler, so it was a great Sunday! :)

Have a great week!

Congrats on C25K! woo hoo! I am just starting Week 4 and it's tough. Those 3 minute runs are killing me. I hope in two months time I will be posting something wonderful like you.

Sundays are great. Sometimes we go to the movies on Sunday night to extend the weekend a bit.

Awesome job on your run! I have been slacking and it's been almost two whole weeks since I've run. I will definitely have to go back a few weeks in the training schedule. Bummer!

My fav Sunday activity is being LAZY!! :)
