What's for Dinner? Week of 8/3

Happy August!! I hope you're all enjoying the first weekend of the end of the summer. :) If you stopped by yesterday, then you already know all the reasons I love August - this year especially!

#HalfTrainingWithJeff Update

Next week at this time, Jeff and I will be in full on recovery mode. I'm hoping at a pool somewhere, though I haven't discussed that with him yet. We've kind of been enjoying tapering a bit too much, perhaps, so I hope that Jeff survives that E.T. Full Moon Midnight Half Marathon. He's pretty confident, but... is he over-confident? It will be an automatic PR for him, since it's his first half marathon, so we're definitely planning on taking it nice and easy.

30 Day Abs Challenge Update

Only 6 more days left of this challenge!! I am SUPER EXCITED for it to be over, but I'm going to do my damnedest to finish this strong. One of the remaining 6 days is a rest day. Knowing that rest is coming is definitely what's going to get me through these next 3 days, and then it will be only TWO more to go! I mean the final days are definitely going to be hard, but I'M GOING TO GET THEM DONE!

Check out this week's Before/After photo. Definite Progress. I still have a ways to go, but I do like seeing some progress. Hopefully after the challenge is over, I'll continue to incorporate abs work into my daily fitness regimen.

What's Next?

1 more week until MY BIRTHDAY!!! And the E.T. Half Marathon. :)

And one week until my birthday, means only more more week of my birthday streak! Well, 8 days, if you count today, which I am, since I still need to get out there. You can still join the party and start streaking with me TODAY! C'mon! Anyone can streak for 8 little days. :) Remember it can be running or yoga or any combination of the two. Fun prizes include gifts from Cocogo, Proud Runner, Detour Protein Bars, Bondi Band, and a Yoga Stretch Strap. More about the birthday gifts prizes here.

  1. Zucchini bread sounds delicious!! Best of luck in the half. too!

    1. Thanks, Laura! This zucchini bread turned out a bit stickier than the last time, but it's still delicious!

  2. You are kicking butt on the ab challenge :) I am still streaking with you!

  3. Wow! You are doing great with that ab challenge - what a difference :) I also love that there is so much zucchini in your meal plan. was hoping to use up most of the obnoxious stash we currently have from the garden last week, but it didn't happen. You've given me a few ideas for our next zucchini dishes!

    1. Thank you! It's always nice to see progress. :) Good luck with the zucchini! It always seems to come in bulk, doesn't it?
