**Fitness Friday: Week 23!**

Wow, I have to say, this week flew by! I really thought that it was going to drag on, but I'm happy that it didn't. I am also SUPER excited that we have finally had some warmer weather around here and it looks like we'll be hitting the beach before we know it!

With that in mind, along with the new bathing suits that I ordered from VS, right now is no time for messing around. I am happy to report that I got in two sessions of Body Pump this week (Mon/Wed) and two good runs so far (Tues/Thurs). I'm hoping to get in another run and/or Body Pump again this weekend.

My run tally for the week:

Tues - 2.62 miles
Thurs - 3.54 miles
Total - 6.16 miles

And to think, I almost didn't go for a run yesterday :p

As I mentioned earlier in the week, S started the Paleo diet on Monday and has been doing really good. Even though I am not following it strictly, I am still trying to eat clean, cut out processed foods, and cut back on carbs. I'm convinced that I'm a carboholic though and if I'm going to eat healthy and work out, there is no way I can survive on no carbs.

Some of the meals that we've had over the past week included barbeque chicken with sweet potatoes and a big salad; grilled mahi with brown rice and a big salad; sausage stuffed zucchini; and shrimp fajitas.

So far for next week, the menu consists of -

Mon - Baked Chicken & Veggies
Wed - Breakfast for Dinner (my fave!!)
Thurs - Slammin' Salmon?? Maybe?
 Fri - Crockpot Pulled Chicken

Hope you all had a great week and have an even better weekend!! I'm looking forward to a Charleston RiverDogs game tonight, S's softball tournament tomorrow and hopefully the beach at some point!

The stifling hot weather makes me want to go outside to exercise less. =[

I need to get new swimsuits for our vacation this summer, maybe I can accomplish that this weekend.

Get it girl!! Love these recipes. I am going to go back to whole 30 next week allowing myself some carbs. This week I indulged for Teacher Appreciatioon

I like Paleo stuff, but only the ones that don't have 9million ingredients and I will never give up bread completely. Eating clean, whole grains, and cutting sugar is just as good ;)
