I know I’m a little behind on some updates, so here goes:
Strength/Half-Marathon Training Update
Monday: strength training–check!
Tuesday: 3-mile tempo–check!
Thursday: abs class before work
Friday: rest (so good at that!)
Saturday: 5-6 mile run (I ended up moving that to Sunday because of the weather…)
Sunday: and only got 4 miles in
The check-in for this week won’t be as pretty. I’ve been burning the candle at both ends with work and Junior League, and I haven’t been doing as well with my workouts as I’d like.

You haven’t seen many updates because I haven’t been cooking anything new, but I made some pulled pork last night, in the easiest way possible: I put a pork butt (haha) in the slow cooker with some water, garlic and onion and let it do its thing for four hours. I put it in at 8 and set an alarm for midnight to turn it to “warm.” I brought it for lunch with some brown rice and broccoli and just had it as a sandwich when I got home tonight. You can put the BBQ sauce and all that jazz in it to cook, which I would have done if I had a full bottle, but I’m guessing putting a little less once it’s all done has gotta be at least somewhat healthier, right?
I swear on my sweet, fluffy dog that one session with a stylist will not turn me into a style blogger or even someone who regularly posts her outfits, but when I put together one I like? Well, you might see it. Yesterday: black leggings, long-sleeved purple top, black knee-high boots and black boyfriend blazer, buttoned, collar popped, sleeves rolled up. Simple, but I felt good, and I loved it.
What about you? How are you doing with strength training? Any other random updates?
