We went camping this weekend. I am usually really good with food when we are camping. However, I did not eat 1 vegetable or fruit I brought this weekend. I did not eat any of the chicken I brought either. I ate freshly caught fish though(And it was soooooo good!). So, this weigh in I was expecting it to be bad.
Last Week's Weight-137.0
This Week's Weight-138.0(+1.0)
I had a goal to workout 5-6 days and I only worked out 1 time. Yikes! Ah well, I have to learn from this and move on.
This week's goals:
1-Complete week 2 of Hal Higdon's 10k training
2-Do all Fitmixer Bootcamp workouts and make up 2
3-Drink 1 gallon of water a day
4-Track calories every day!
I hope you are having a fantastic Monday!

1. I made my daddy breakfast for father's day and it was Marvelous! I love my dad so very much! He is such a good dad. I am his only daughter and a true Daddy's girl to the core! When I was sitting down to breakfast with him and my brother's it really made me happy that we were together for the first time in a while. I don't see them nearly enough.
2. I am going camping on Friday! Always the most Marvelous thing. We are campers for life and every summer we plan trips once to twice a month. It is so awesome every time we go :) Just 4 more sleeps and I am "checking out" til Monday.
3. I get to take a week off at the end of July and I am soooo excited to do so!! I have a lot of stuff I am planning to do that weekend.
What are you feeling Marvelous about today??
Monday Morning Weigh In
Last Week's Weight 138.4(which was a .2 pound gain from the previous week)
This Week's Weight 137(-1.4)
I feel good about that. I worked out 4 days last week. I did the elliptical 3 days + fitmixer boot camp workouts and just the bootcamp workout one of the days. I did eat a little too much at breakfast yesterday, but recognized it and put myself back into check for the rest of the day.
This week, it is balls to the wall. I am running Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday or Sunday. I am starting week 1 of a 10k training program. I need to work my running fitness back up, as I am going to run the Halloween Half Marathon in Provo, Utah this year. My time 2 years ago was 2:2something. This year, I would like to train hard and kick butt. I will post my goals at a later date, but I really want to kick this half's butt this year. My half marathon PR is 2:16:00, which was my first of 2 half's I have ran.
I will be ellipticizing and maybe stair climbing Wednsday and Friday. Along with all 5 days worth of boot camp workouts. I will be taking last Friday's missed workout with me to do on Saturday.
We are going camping this weekend and I hope to be more active than normal. I am hoping to do the 1 mile hiking loop a few times while we are down there, along with a 3 mile run on Saturday or Sunday.
Goal for next Monday Weigh In is 134.6! I really want that 10 pound goal. I know 2.6 pounds is totally doable for next Monday. So, it is time to rock and roll!!
This week will be spent grocery shopping, packing, and final preps before camping.
Do you go camping?? If not, have you ever been camping?

Well, my streak has ended. Didn’t post or workout for 2 days. Boo! Oh well, I got up today, cleaned house a little and got my booty to the gym.
I did 45 minutes on the elliptical on a cross training workout that was hills. I was soaked to the bone and loved it! I was texting Chad “Weeee!!” and “I am soaked! Yeah, Great Workout!” Yep….I am a goober sometimes!
Once I got home, It was time to refuel….
Coffee with Almond Milk(5g of protien!), 1 egg sunny side up, 1 slice of french toast, bananas and a little protein powder/water mixture.
This was the perfect breakfast. I kept the calories in check and the flavor was good!
After breakfast, it was time to head over to My Honey Buns dad’s house to do some work on our trailer. We are headed for more camping next weekend, so we always start getting ready a week in advance.
When we got home, it was time to start prepping black beans for tonight thru most of the week’s worth of dinners. We tend to eat the same thing, all the time. Last week almost every night for dinner we had Chicken, Baked Potatoes, and Veggies(For Me). Tonight to probably Wednesday we will have Chicken Burritos, which are my favorite!
I started to get hungry once the beans were soaking so it was time for a snack….
Edamame and a Fitmixer Slim Shake
I also started keeping closer track of my water intake. I would say on average, I drink at least 80 oz of water a day, but I would really like to be drinking a gallon. I definitely feel a difference on days where I drink less.
I have a plan to make this happen
I actually have purified(RO) water in my basement that we use for the salt water fish tanks(we have 3 in the house now). So, I am going to fill up the gallon jug every morning and drink it throughout the day. That way I know I will hit my goal.
What are you up to this weekend??

I finished with 150 various moves from the 300 ab challenge that I pinned from Pinterest.
It was an excellent workout!! I am already feeling it in my lower back, abs and triceps!

Last Week: 138.2
This Week: 138.4
I am 100% okay with +.2 lbs. I drank a half a bottle of wine and 1 beer on Saturday night. So, I actually expected worse. Even though I saw 136.2 on Wednesday last week. Bummer! Oh well, there is always next week.
Friday Night-We went out to dinner with Chad's family. Joe Morley's is a local joint and it is sooo good. I have a smoked turkey sandwich with a cup of clam chowder. I probably should have gone with a salad, but we have been trying to not eat out. So, I had a little cheat there. We followed that up by going to a sports bar and I had an apple flavored beer, which was a little sweet, but okay. Then, home to bed.
Saturday-Woke up to a little bit of this.....

In my life, I have had some very unhealthy, toxic relationships with people. I have also had some very healthy, loving relationships. Thankfully, the healthy, loving ones are the ones that have lasted.
I always seemed to have these "bad friends" or "bad boyfriends" who would gravitate to me and I would accept them. Even though, they only cared about themselves and no one else. It took them doing a lot of terrible things to me for me to realize that these people were not what I wanted/needed in my life. It took so much hurt and so much courage for me to finally walk away from these people. I had good friends and boyfriends, but I didn't realize how truly great they were until I pushed the bad out and the good were waiting with open arms.
Once I came around to my senses, I reconnected with 2 girls that truly are the best girl friends anyone could have. When I am with them, I can be who I am. They love me everyday and we keep in touch as much as possible. It always seems like when I am having a bad day, they happen to text me randomly to see how I am doing(As I typed that, one of them posted the SWEETEST BLOG and I stopped to read it). I love them. We rely on each other, we know that we can always count on each other and I adore them. I love you both and I love us!

Lately I have been addicted to the Fifty Shades Trilogy. As in, I have read the first 2 books(in a 5 days) and started on the 3rd last night. I am already about 50 pages in. It is quite the captivating read. However, the sex parts are a little much. Meet, Have Sex, Fight, Have Sex, Guy gets mad at girl, Sex.....Sex is around every corner. I skimmed through some because I got bored of reading basically the same thing over and over again.
Other than that, life has been just that.....life! Nothing too exciting going on around these parts. I do intend to start making up the Fitmixer Bootcamp workouts. I will complete all of them by doubling up some days, but now that I am enjoying running again, I have to do it before I lose the love.
Tell me something exciting going on with you!
