235/1000 Push Ups
30 Miles/75 Miles
375/1000 Sit Ups

Yikes, I am having a really hard time getting back into the swimg of things since being sick. Earlier today I did some weights and my Turbo Fire HIITS 15. They kicked my butt!! I decided to not run/walk today because of the cardio video. Then I had dinner. It. was. ugly. That is all I have to say. Needless to say, I got my but on the treadmill tonight and did my 2.5 miles of walk/run. It hurt. Throughout the rest of the day I did go though. I had been without my Shakeology since Friday and I was missing it! I had a shake for breakfast and then I was craving another one around lunch time so I just went ahead and had one for lunch too. I filled the day in with some fruits and nuts to snack on to keep my appetite curbed. Off to bed now for me. Hopefully the late run doesn't get me all fired up to the point of not being able to sleep, I don't usually work out this late!!

200/1000 Push Ups
27.5 Miles/75 Miles
315/1000 Sit Ups

I was out for a week with a terrible head cold. I tried working out last Wednesday shortly after it had started and it was a horrible workout and by the end of the day I felt miserable. I decided to listen to my body and rest, though I think I might have extended that rest more than I needed to!! I worked out two days ago and struggled big time. Then yesterday was just laziness. The day before hurt and I dreaded it too much that I just kept putting it off until it was too late. Not today. I just sucked it up and did it. It was rough, but I did it and hopefully tomorrow will be just a little bit easier.

Tonight we are going to our fair, which means funnel cake!! I am hoping that we can all share ONE, that way I don't make myself miserable! Ohhh, how I LOVE funnel cake!!!

New Numbers:

165/1000 Push Ups
22.5 Miles/75 Miles
255/1000 Sit Ups

I think my almost 2 year old son has shared his bronchitis with me. I feel terrible. But I forced myself to do some ST and my walk/run routine. The running intervals seemed like they lasted forever. I was exhausted when I got done, but I am so happy I did it. Hopefully tomorrow I feel better!!

So here are my updated numbers for July so far:

130/1000 Push Ups
20 Miles/75 Miles
195/1000 Sit Ups

I wasn't very good this past weekend about getting any kind of workout in. I am going to have some catching up to do as the month progresses! The key for me is to STICK WITH IT!!! No matter what! I am always so quick to say that I can't do something and just give up without really trying. Not this time. Even if I don't make my goals, I am still going to bust my butt to try!! I got some awesome lifting in this morning and some cardio.

This week I started week 4 with the 8-Week Rookie Running Program for Spark People's Virtual 5K race. I was really nervous because this week you walk 2 minutes then run 3 minutes, doing this 5 times total ending at 25 minutes. Well.....all of a sudden I noticed that was running and it was almost at 30 minutes. Yes, I had unknowingly added an extra rotation in there of the walk/run. I decided to just continue on as if I am actually doing week 5 and will just repeat it next week also, maybe I can increase my speeds next week. I was shocked! See (I told myself) YOU CAN DO IT!!!! I need to learn to have more confidence in myself and my capabilities.

Make today count!! emoticon

Ugh, another hot day here that's supposed to be over 100. This heat is brutal!! At least they are forecasting a break in the heat starting tomorrow, only supposed to be in the mid 80s...I can't wait!!

Today's run hurt a little. I have a pain in my groin area, I must have pushed it a little too hard this week. I am just going to do some extra stretching before and after the runs and hope it works itself out...I don't have time for an injury!!

So here are my updated numbers for July so far:

100/1000 Push Ups
15 Miles/75 Miles
135/1000 Sit Ups

One day at a time and I will get there! Happy Friday, I am soooo looking forward to the weekend!!
