Sticking to my goals and unexpected rest days. #GIVEAWAYS

I took an early rest day yesterday. I spent the day with my parents. If you haven’t been following me, last month my dad was rushed to the hospital, because they thought he had a stroke. His face was numb and drooping on one side. it ended up being Bells palsy, but he did have a small stroke as well. They believe the Bells Palsy happened, because he was having Chemo treatments at the time and his white blood cell count was down. He has since been on break from Chemo therapy, which is awesome. His face is not back to normal yet, but it is getting there slowly. 😉

I even had a great visit with my mom. It was nice to sit and talk without any drama! These are visits that I cherish!!!

I was great about sticking to my clean eating, although my mom did try several times to sway me. I was even tempted to weigh myself on their scale. It was in the bathroom, so every time I went, or took Zoe to go, it was just sitting there staring at me lol I stayed true to my goal for the month, and I stayed off the scale!

From my parent’s house I went to dinner with my husband and his lovely parents! We wanted to celebrate all of our birthdays together. We went to 54th Street bar and Grill. Zoe acted really good! It helped that I brought her a mini container of playdough, but there was so much to look at inside that she was kept very busy! I did good with my meal order too. I researched the night before online which meal would be the best health wise. I wasn’t concerned too much with taste, because everything there is so awesome!! I ordered the Coyote Chicken. It pretty much is what dreams are made of lol. 😉

I did however cheat with a few handfuls of Jelly Bellys. They are a weakness of mine. Not clean or good for me, but oh so tasty lol.  I was so exhausted from the day that when we arrived home, I did not do my renegade challenge or plank a day. Tonight I will make up for those. Yes, that means 240 renegade push-ups and 2 rounds of planks for time today, but I am a beast 😉 I will get them done! I also did not get my run in yesterday, so I will run longer tomorrow! Gotta make up for missed days! I have goals to reach!!!

I feel better about my progress this month than I have in a long time! Maybe it is because I am not looking at the scale. I don’t know what it is? Not to toot my own horn, but I feel and look great, so TOOT! 🙂 I also have been winning giveaways like crazy this week! I got a box of Detour protein bars in this morning. That always makes for a great day too!!! Today is family fun day, so I am headed out with the two loves of my life for a fun filled day!!! I hope all of you are enjoying the day too!!!!

Don’t forget about the GIVEAWAYS I have going on!!! The GetKombucha giveaway is getting ready to end! I LOVE the stuff, and know you will too!!! You have to get entered to win!!!!

3 Mile run, Arts & Crafts, and Motivational Monday!!! Who’s Awesome? You’re Awesome!!!!

Pretty proud this morning! I ran 3.26 miles, which is the furthest I have ever run! I seriously thought I was going to do worse lol I ran it in 39:15 Not the greatest, but not bad for a first time running that far! I was a little worried how Zoe would do. She started to get a little restless, so I gave her some strawberries and that seemed to tide her over! It also helped that people have some Halloween decorations up too! I was wiped when we got home lol, but I also felt accomplished!

Post run 🙂

From there it was time to straighten the house and start Zoe’s lesson plan. She was pretty stoked today! Her Grandma’s birthday is tomorrow, so we made a birthday picture for her and made a witch for Halloween. She saw so many on our run and was curious about them, so I figured we would make one today!

So as you can see, fun morning. While she was doing crafts, I have been on the phone and email trying to get more reviews/giveaways set up for you guys! Looks like November might be as exciting of a month as October will!!!! I will be spending the next few days researching some stuff!

I have recently come across Kombucha. It is also known in Ancient China as the “Immortal Health Elixir” I am going to do more research on it to find out it’s health benefits and how to use it! I smell another giveaway in October for it! 😉

Can I be any more excited for October!!! LOL 🙂
