#HalfTrainingWithJeff continues to go well. We just finished week 3, and Jeff is still feeling good about continuing the training and running the full half on 8/10. I think it's so much better training with someone. Less temptation to skip a workout here and there. :) Of course, we are both kind of hurting after yesterday's 7-miler.
The pain in my butt has returned with a vengeance.
BUT I'm still going to try for a 1-mile run and some yoga today, but if it continues, I might have to consider not running my own #ETCRunStreak. I'd still love you to join my birthday party, though!

30 Day LBD Challenge Update - I started this challenge on 6/11, but I guess I haven't really be doing a formal update on my progress - other than noting it in my workouts. It's a very tough challenge! I've missed a few days and rearranged a few others. It's going to end up taking me 32 days to finish, provided I can stick to it this week! I've never done so many burpees or held a plank for so long! As for results? I'm totally kicking myself for not taking any before pictures. :( I'm not really sure that I've seen any progress. In fact, I feel like my belly is even bigger than it was. Booo.
What's Next? My #ETCStreaks started yesterday. 37 days of running or 37 days of yoga or 37 days of a combination both. I hope you'll join my birthday party! Right now there are some fun prizes from Cocogo, Proud Runner, and a Yoga Stretch Strap.
What's for Dinner next week? No Bountiful this past weekend, but we did pick up some produce during our weekly shopping trip. Yay! Instead of breaking down my meals by day, I tried organizing my meal planning a bit differently this week - and including plans for breakfast, lunch, and snacks, too. It seemed more difficult to actually put together a shopping list this way, so we'll see how it goes throughout the week.
