Happy Friday! I’m nearing the end of my staycation and I’m sad 🙁 but I guess I really shouldn’t complain because it was a super productive week, despite the crazy heatwave! I got SO many errands done this week and I feel like I can go into next week with a lot less stress, which is always a good thing! Oh, and before I forget, just wanted to let you know that yesterday I did a live IG video speaking about collagen and it’s benefits. You can still catch it on playback on my IG page until 11am EST today, if you’re interested 🙂
Did you have a good month? August went by in the blink of an eye. I think training for RnR Philly and being super busy at work made the days go by faster than normal. As usual, I have a lot to say or “runfess” about August. Since it’s the last Friday of the month, I’m linking up with Marcia from Marcia’s Healthy Slice for Runfessions. Let’s get started!
I runfess that I missed my weight loss goal, but I’m okay with that!
Back in May, I set a weight long goal for myself – I wanted to drop 15 pounds by the end of summer. I’ve been following the Weight Watchers program since Memorial Day and so far I’ve lost 13 pounds. While it’s not my goal of 15, I’m still proud of that number. My clothing fits SO much better and I’m glad that my eating habits are back on track. I’d call that a win!
I runfess that rude runners really annoy me
While I understand that running in the summer can be difficult, it’s still no excuse to be rude. Lately I’ve noticed that runners just don’t acknowledge other runners. Numerous times I have smiled, said “hi”, given a head nod or even waved at runners and they will literally not acknowledge me at all. I’m a pretty friendly person so I always try to acknowledge people when I’m walking or running past them, but I guess others don’t feel the same way. Honestly we’re all out there running for fun, it’s not like we’re going to break any Olympic records, so taking one second out of your day to say hello really shouldn’t be a big deal, right?
I runfess that I cannot wait for Fall!
This should come as no shock to anyone but I’m SO ready for Fall and I can’t wait for it to start next month. Fall and Winter and tied for my favorite season. I love everything about Fall – the holidays, the cooler temperatures, the fashion, the change of colors, apple picking, and of course, pumpkin everything! On a side note, I know that the pumpkin spice latte is now available for purchase, but that just seems wrong. I always wait until late September/early October to get my first PSL of the season, LoL.
I runfess that I might be considering running another marathon
I’ll have to see how I feel after my Fall racing schedule, but right now I’m about 50/50 on signing up for another marathon. If I do, it will most likely be a winter or spring marathon (I’ve given up on Fall marathons because the summer training is just too brutal). I ran my last marathon in March so it’s been a while. Maybe I’ve just blocked all the intense running from my memory? I’m currently taking suggestions for Winter/Fall marathons if you have any!
I runfess that I’m obsessed with my air fryer
I purchased an air fryer on Amazon during the Prime Day deals and it might be one of the best purchases I’ve made this year! I love how it cooks things quickly and without oil. I’ve cooked a few things in it so far and everything has come out amazing – homemade french fries, chicken and buffalo cauliflower, just to name a few. Also it’s nice to not have to turn on the stove or oven when it’s super hot outside!
That’s it for this month – thanks for reading my runfessions! I hope that you have a great weekend!
Do you have anything you want to runfess for August?
