Week 8?

I'm now up to 2.5 miles straight. Can you believe it? If I can do it really anyone can do this plan. I must admit the last few weeks were pretty hard for me mentally and physically. I cheated a few times. This little voice keeps saying I'm done and this is as far as my body will go, but then I go another lap and another lap. I just tell myself my mind is wrong it doesn't know what I can do. It is so hard to stay to the plan and keep going. Excuses like it's 100 degrees, the bugs bit me, my knee hurts, why am I doing this keep popping up too.

Luckily Matt's sister and mom go with me. So, that is a huge factor that keeps me going. Plus I'm getting so close.

I went to the nike outlet the other day and got a bunch of great workout outfits. I highly recommend it to anyone needing stuff.

Thanks to a few seasoned runner playlist and a few of my favorites I have finally picked my playlist. I submitted it to iMix to share but it takes a while to be approved. In the meantime here you go.

Ok that is kinda small. Here is a better list.

Faith, George Michael
T-Shirt, Shontelle
Defying Gravity, Freddy
Trouble, Pink
It Wasn't Me, Shaggy
Murder She Wrote, Chaka Demus & Pliers
In da Club, 50 Cent
You Can Do It, Ice Cube
No Woman No Cry, Bob Marley
Dreams, The Cranberries

New on the Menu

I'm excited this week I'm going to try 3 new recipes. I guess you could say I'm a little bored.

Sunday - I'm going to try Ina's Tequila Lime Chicken. I have high hopes for this one b/c I adore her recipes.

Monday - No plans.

Tuesday - Is running day. A few places I have read say that shrimp is great for runners so I'm just going to saute some shrimp with some summer veggies.

Wednesday - MarketStreet Tamales

Thursday - Peanut Chicken Wraps. I'm a little worried about this one. Mostly b/c I'm not a huge fan of Peanut Chicken, but Matt likes it so I'm taking on for the team.

Friday - Spaghetti all Carbonara. I tried this once and it was bad but maybe Tyler has a better way of doing it.
