friday 5

Linking up with April, Darci, Natasha, and Christina....

I'm really proud of myself  and my workouts lately.

I'm running a 10k on October 4 and am determined to do well, hence my goal of running 50 miles in September. Follow and join me on twitter (@charlotteplaw) and hashtag #50milesseptember. I realize 50 miles was a HUGE goals and maybe even too steep, but I'm doing my best to hit my goal!

I'll go back to 9/1/13 when I started my goal and throw in my other workouts... So I guess this isn't really a weekly workout, more like my "September so far" workout.
Sunday, Sept 1: 2.10 miles on treadmill 8'34 pace
Tuesday, Sept 3: 3.11 miles {with 2 coworkers} 9'34 pace
Wednesday, Sept 4: 2.34 miles
Thursday, Sept 5: 3.18 miles on treadmill, walk/run
Friday, Sept 6: 1 hour of spin class
Saturday, Sept 7: 1 hour of barre class
Monday, Sept 9, 1.05 miles on elliptical + abs
Tuesday, Sept 10, 3.38 miles outside and over the Beaufort bridge / 9'15 pace
Wednesday, Sept 11: 1 hour of weights + cardio class {I am h-u-r-t-i-n-g}
Thursday, Sept 12: 4.60 miles outside / 8'34 pace
Tonight I'm hoping to go to spin class again and get another run in tomorrow morning.

Total for September: 19.7 miles /  30.3 to go!

I've seen so many interesting articles floating around Facebook that I had to share!

 - Though I am married... I thought this article titled "26, unmarried, and childless" was super interesting. I think we can all relate to a lot of the points in the article.

- Another friend also passed on this article about marriage. It's called "15 ways to stay married for 15 years" and is definitely worth the read! There are some really good key points about marriage including  doing your own thing (hello Charlotte running and Tyler hunting) and going to bed mad and making up in the morning (I don't hate this one).

 - And I know we all LOVE Buzzfeed, so in honor of Halloween quickly approaching, I thought this one, "10 Questions Hocus Pocus Let Unanswered" was too funny not to share. 

You have all got to make this cookie dough dip. My friend tried it a few weeks ago and told me about it, but I was super skeptical until she made it again last night and I asked her to bring some to work.... Ladies and gentleman, I bring you "healthy cookie dough" and the main ingredient is chickpeas! I'm serious. It sounds so gross but it is delicious and I am making some tonight!


I don't know about you, but he's feeling 22. Cannot wait to embarrass his Facebook wall with some T.Swift.

No real update on my night sweats. Blood work came back "perfect" which is great butttttttttt we still aren't sure what is going on. I think I'll just wait it out and see. Thanks for those of you who have been concerned!!

Happy Weekend!

You're doing awesome on your miles! You can get in your 50 I know it! I loved the 26, unmarried, and childless article. Nikki sent it to me and it just fits me to a tee (except that I'm 29). That Hocus Pocus one is AWESOME! Totally watching that this weekend, while making some of that cookie dough! Still praying you get some answers on your night sweats!

50 miles in a month? I would die! Good for your for sticking to that goal, it will feel so awesome when you've reached it! That Hocus Pocus article was hilarious, I absolutely loveeee that movie! Have a great weekend!

Love it! Grace just launched her new wedding line as'll have to check it out, it's gorgeous! I'm going to order some and just use them as notecards.

I love the "go to bed mad" advice. It's so true! Sometimes we will get in arguments over the stupidest things, go to bed without making up, and wake up and totally forget what it was that we were arguing about! If it was such a big deal, we would remember it. :)

I love Hocus Pocus! That so takes me back to my childhood!
