Friday night around 7:30 I started telling Miss H that I wanted to go for a run and asked her if she wanted to try to run with me or ride her bike. This is what I got...
|She started to put a movie in...huh?|

Saturday Miss H had soccer and then a birthday party. At her age you never know if parents are going to stay or leave the birthday party and so I was kind of planning on staying but once we got there Miss H wanted me to leave. Not that I complained, I'll take 2 hours to myself! Got home and decided I was going to go for a run. Probably not the smartest move I've done yet but I was safe about it. It was HOT this weekend and running at 1pm in the afternoon is something that I've never done before but I thought it couldn't be that bad and I could always walk if it got that bad. I had no desire to run a certain distance, just wanted to get out and run while I had a moment to myself.
|And I wore a black tank top...stupid!|
One cool thing that I tried out this weekend was a new app I heard of. It's called RunKeeper.
Sunday we churched it and then ran to the grocery store afterwards. Got home and made lunch and started cutting up my veggies for the week. Something that I've learned to help keep me on track with eating my veggies is to always have them cut up and to find the time to cut them up is to do it right away. You get home from the grocery store and you're already in the kitchen putting things away, so just stay in there and cut everything up. I know if I leave the kitchen trying to get motivated to cut everything up later is like pulling teeth. I dont' like doing it and so I gotta do it while I'm putting things away because I know I won't want to come back to it later.

|Sunday run...new personal distance record!|
Overall I am proud how well I did with running this weekend and not letting Miss H's complaining stop me from getting a work out in. I took advantage of the time I had to run and did it. It was hot out but I pushed myself through it and hopefully it'll help with my weight loss for the week. However, I am definitely excited for the cooler temps this fall, bring them on!!
Did you push yourself to working out this weekend?
