I met up with my friend Cathy this morning to run! I had 12 and she did the first 5 with me (about 8min/mile pace), which was awesome of her! She got me off to a great start that I kept up through the run. And my last 3 miles were my fastest, which was the goal my coach had for me! 🙂
Cathy shared this photo in her picture for today, which I thought was funny 🙂
I also wore a new pair of Belcorva Shorts today to run in! They are a little longer than most running shorts (like 1/2-1inch), but are very comfortable and have just as many pockets as the leggings do. There are 2 big pockets in front (iphone 6plus size) and a small one in the back for keys and such.
- I’m a big fan of the leggings (photo below) they have as well — they are Lululemon quality/fit/feel/length for 1/3rd of the price. I ordered a pair of capris & a tank top as well!

Calorie Free Cream/Sweetener “Salted Caramel” Flavor
I am a big fan of Slap Nutrition proteins and pancake mixes, and have been using the Salted Caramel BCAAs this week as a sub for cream/splenda this week in my tea! (or with slappuccino). It works really well. I don’t like the flavor of it mixed with cold water (personal preference), but LOVE it with hot water. It’s basically macro/calorie-free, so it’s nice to have as an add in and not have to log creamer in my daily food. 🙂
- this salted caramel tea by Bigelow is also yummy! It’s one of those that even smells good.

GIVING up Protein Ice Cream 😦
So sad! For me, not my husband (who doesn’t love the sound of the blender.. haha). One thing I noticed on vacation was how good I felt (and lost a couple pounds unintentionally) and since vacay, I’ve been feeling a little bloated here and there.
I eliminated my ice cream a couple days this week and felt great. Then had some yesterday and was back to ugh.. So I guess I just didn’t realize this before – I blame vacation for making me see what I was missing, but in a good way! In place of the ice cream, I am subbing in a big salad (for volume) and either a protein ‘recipe‘ or some meat! So a normal meal LOL….
The Real Heaven – this was probably one of THE best books I’ve read Ever. I have it underlined and earmarked all over. This is my Instagram post on it with a slide show of what’s inside of it (some of my favorite quotes). It really gave me an entire new perspective on life and eternity in a good way. It motivated me to live with purpose, but also not to take some things so seriously (like the things that I can’t control – goals, opinions of others, etc).
I’ve ordered a couple more books from him – I posted this and a couple friends recommended additional books by Chip that I plan to read this fall. 🙂
Happy Friday Everyone!
