Hello October!

Hey ya’ll! I’m in a great mood this morning (yes, on a Monday), for a few different reasons. First, I got in my run bright and early so I’m all done. I told Leigh Ann this weekend how before a run, I’m so pumped up and excited to just RUNNNN! Then during the run, I am wanting to put my own self out of my misery because I’m silently singing “FML, FML, FML” the whole time—only the actual words, not the initials. But then after the run, I feel energized and proud and in a great mood. So I guess I have to put the pain aside and just freakin do it. I’m also in a great mood because it’s October! And as luck would have it, the cranky bitch that is Louisiana Mother Nature has finally decided to get down to the 60’s instead of the last few weeks in the 80’s-90’s. Fall weather makes me happy yall! I’m even wearing boots today. Another reason to be happy. It’s the little things!
 
My weekend was very productive, despite my desire to do nothing. I met up with Leigh Ann for our Saturday run (IN THE RAIN I MIGHT ADD!) I never thought I’d run in the rain. Hell, I never thought I’d run unless an ax murderer was chasing me. We were so proud of ourselves.

 
After that, I went home to shower and dry off and did my grocery shopping for the week, braved the wild baboons again went to the mall to refill my foundation and mascara collections and tried to find a dress for an upcoming wedding (no luck). Am I the only one who has an EXACT idea of what I want to buy and if I can't find that EXACT thing I am not satisfied? Probably...

Saturday night I attempted to make a cauliflower crust pizza and this happened:
The piece missing is actually underneath the foil, also in the trash can. I ended up eating a turkey burger and broccoli because I couldn't stand another bite. I planned on posting a recipe and tutorial but I’d never subject you to eating that pile of feet tasting goo.

 
Sunday I got two work outs in and did 13525 loads of laundry. I also caught up on my DVR which is like my third favorite thing to do.
 
A few update shots for ya'll- I am finally seeing a difference! No more looking four months pregnant! (Maybe just two now.) I'd like to look not pregnant though, thanks.

  3. Get it girl! What I would do to be able to run with the two of you! I need some running buddies big time. I am so much more likely to just stop and walk if I'm alone...you are seriously rocking this! And I've heard that cauliflower crust is just awful....I can't imagine haha cracks me up that you took a pic of it in the garbage, though. Hope your week isn't too stressful! Happy Monday!

    1. Well, I have been lied to all these years about cauliflower crust, I guess. I've heard "You can't even tell the difference!" uhhh, yeah right! lol

      I wish you could run with us too, we'd rock it!

      I think we should meet up someday in New Orleans for a 5k or something one day? I can't make it to the Color Run in November but Leigh Ann will be there!

  4. I feel the same way about running! Your post from day one of the clinic is still haunting me. I haven't ran outdoors yet, and I keep putting it off thinking it's going to be so much harder than the treadmill. How's it going? Is running on pavement getting easier?

    1. Let me change your mind. Running outside sucks, yes. But I have already seen major progress in my running and my body in the TWO weeks I've been running outdoors. I've been running on the treadmill since about June and hadn't lost any weight. I've already lost 3+ pounds and are feeling muscles I've never felt before. Also, all my clothes are fitting loosely! Also, judging from my Heart Rate Monitor, I burn way more running outside than running inside.

      I would feel the same way as you about running outside if I hadn't seen the benefits. It is TOTALLY worth the pain, I promise. Try it for a while and you'll be hooked!

    2. And also to answer your question, it is getting way easier already! I can run way more without stopping now than I did two weeks ago when we started. Can't wait to see how far I've come at the end of the two weeks!
