Giveaway Info & Fitness Goals

A giveaway!

First, let me advise you to head on over to Allison's blog, Crafted Love, to enter her awesome August sponsor giveaway.

I have a pair of striped armwarmers up for grabs (just in time for fall), and there are some seriously cute items from her other sponsors, whose blogs and shops you'll have a chance to check out. Do it!

Fitness Goals: Update

I've been keeping up with my workouts, running 4x a week, mainly on the treadmill, but just last night I did my run out by the lake after dinner. For me, it's both easier and more difficult to run outside. All natural air conditioning from a lakeside breeze means I don't feel as hot and sweaty, but when the ground isn't actively moving on its own under my feet, it's way more tempting to get impatient and run at a faster-than-normal pace that I can't keep up or to slow down to a walk.  Because this obstacle is entirely mental, I'm determined to conquer it.  Once a week, until the weather drives me away from it, I'll be taking one of my runs outside. Wish me luck!

This particular motivational sentence has been really helpful (when I think of myself as the one who might be sitting on the couch instead of being awesome at the gym):

My other running goal is to redo my ipod playlist. Changing out the songs always results in a new burst of energy. Any suggestions for songs that are great for running?

Also, tangentially related to health and fitness, I just made delicious, fluffy scrambled eggs in the microwave. For a girl who hates doing dishes, this is a major revelation. I may never go back to my old ways. Want to try it yourself? Just mix two eggs up in a microwave safe bowl with some salt and pepper, microwave for 1 minute and stir, then microwave for another 1:15. Sprinkle some cheese on top for extra flavor. Yum.
