Five Things Friday: the blog blocked edition.

Welcome to this week’s Five Things Friday. I don’t know if I just have too much stuff going on right now (aka stress) or what but I can’t seem to focus on writing a blog post right now. I’ve sat down three times today to write a post and it’s just not coming. I’m blocked. I never want the blog a source of stress in my life. For today I’m going to let the blog post go. I always want to create content that you can gain something from but today it’s not happening. Instead you’re going to learn about my week…so far.

Grocery shopping

I’m running a half marathon tomorrow and then when that’s done I’m going to drive to Florida to run a marathon. Just wanted to let you know that I’ve completely lost my mind, but I’m just going to roll with it. Since I’ll be gone, I had to do some meal prep today which meant I had to go to the grocery store this morning. Apparently, Friday morning at 8am is the best time to go shopping. No one is in there and everything is stocked or getting stocked. It was amazing!

My favorite part of fall is apple season! I love apples so much! I prefer red apples: honey crisp, jazz and some other variations. Which do you prefer: red or green #apples? #healthyeating #fruits #fitfam #weightlossjourney #webeatfat #weightloss #fitflue

I spotted some really nice apples. I’ve been talking about those apples on Instagram and Facebook. Join the discussion. Basically, what is your favorite type of apple?

Loved teaching my class this morning.it may be very early but It's a great way to start off the day. What time of day do you get your #workout in? Morning, afternoon or evening? #tiuteam #instarunners #fitfluential #sweatpink #fitness #fitnessaddict #fit

Last week my glutes hurt so bad. When I say bad, I mean bad. It hurt to sit down and I was trying to figure out what the problem was and I couldn’t really pin point it. Yes, I returned to Group Power last week but this pain was more than just laying off of weights for a while. Then I came to realize, it was the new seat on the instructor spin bike. What a crazy thing, right? I’m glad to report things are ok now, not hurting so bad.

Things this week

Most importantly, this week while sitting on that instructor bike, I returned to full sweat band mode. I’ve been wearing hats lately but nothing does the job like a sweat band. How do I look?

Things this week

Like I said, I returned to Group Power. The biggest mistake I make is laying off the weights when I get into marathon time. It’s a mistake for me because sometimes I’ll run 2-3 marathons very close together which means I’m laying off the weights for an extended amount of time. I will not make that mistake again. I’ll keep going in between but maybe just going with lighter weights. I aim to have 3 days a week of strength training, but I’m winning if I get in 2 days. I do full body on both of those days. I think everyone should strive for two days a week. Are you getting your strength training in?

Things this week
It was National Sandwich Day on Tuesday so I had a sandwich from Subway. It was FRESH!

I hope you enjoyed this light hearted day on the blog and this week’s Five Things Friday.

I really want to know, do you like red apples or green apples? Let me know in the comments.

The case of writers block

The case of writers block

Writers block has got me down.  I don’t know what to post here.  I have lots of things going around in my head but I can’t narrow it down.  Maybe I’m lacking focus…or maybe I just want to share something new with you but I just don’t know what.  It’s about evolution, but I guess I’m still trying to narrow in on who exactly I am. I’ve been taking it easy because I know the next couple of weeks are going to crazy BUT exciting.  Yes, there will be more travel and running posts. So what’s been going on in my… View Post
