Sunday, I left Baltimore and all my FitBloggin family long before most of them were even awake. I had an early flight to Denver.
Sunday and Monday I spent splashing in pools, drove to the sights, ate at some local favorites and hiked and hiked and hiked. Actually, it was walked and walked and walked. The trails were all paved.
Garden of the Gods is a beautiful place to spend the day. The weather was perfect. A little overcast. Slight breeze.

|Check out the two guys-|
in my mind they are playing cards
And then it was time to get home. HOME HOME HOME never sounded so good.
Tuesday night was choir practice at the university. I was exhausted from yet another long day of traveling. This choir is tough. Somehow I got through it.
Now for the fun stuff.......WORKOUTS!!!
Check out Wednesday workout with Kort.
Nothing says welcome home quite like Kort telling me I get to drag, pull, toss an 80 lb punching bag across the gym floor.
Taron was at home
Later that night I ran on the HS track while we waited for Taron to audition. Figured I was there, might as well make the best of my time. Since seriously starting this 5K training, I have been mostly working on the treadmill. Very different to be on the track. Felt good to be out there but I was definitely a little slower....and I am
Friday....ahhhh...love a good Friday night sweat. Best way to start the weekend. This time Taron was on a scout over nighter so Keaton was with me again. Love that boy!!! He is the best workout partner.
Wednesday was lower body. Friday was full body workout.
If anyone has a chance to join us on Monday, Wednesday or Friday, come on out. We love Spencer King Athletics. Kort is the best trainer. He can push us but not make me feel bad. He has a way about him that just makes me want to push for the best that is in me. (Part of it could be that he is so dang cute, but really, come out and see for yourself. SHHHHH don't tell him I said that.)
Where is everyone??? Oh, yes, Friday night. When you are a single mom, you forget what Friday means to other people. :) No worries, even better for me to focus on my task with no distractions.
Saturday I was way to sore from the weeks strength workouts to go for my regular City Creek hike. I did however, make it to box aerobics.
Great week all things considered.
I will be traveling again most of the week. Training takes me to Boise. With the Color Run on October 27, I have set a goal to abstain from wheat and sugar until then. I want to be 27 days clean the day of the run. With traveling for work right off the start, this may be difficult. All of our meals are through the training.
Never fear. Preparation is here.
I am planning to take a bunch of tuna pouches to have over salad and hard boiled eggs and lots of fruit. There is usually some sort of vegetable to eat there.
The hotel is nestled right along the green belt so I am going to be running after training each night.
I can do this. In the past these events have caused me panic. I give in and just say I have to eat what foods they offer.
Yet, if I want to be good to myself during the training, I must prepare today.
So with that, I better get cutting up some pineapple (sweet treat for at night), cantaloupe and plan out my menu.
Are you looking ahead to what your week will look like? What challenges are you preparing for?
What are your goals for the week.
Two of mine....complete couch to 5K trainer week 4 and stay wheat and sugar free.
Loves to you all!!! I am cheering you all the way!
