Tonight I hit the dreadmill for my last track workout in my marathon training! I can’t believe that I have been doing these for 16 weeks! I feel so much stronger and ready to tackle my race on Saturday. The workout was awesome!

Which leads me to my Wednesday Workout Tip for the day.

Track Workout

10-20 minute warm up (about a 9-10 minute mile pace)

  • 1 minute plank
  • 50 oblique twists touching my heels
  • 1 minute plank
  • 50 leg raises

Check out my new pink Under Armor hat from Marshalls🙂 Thanks SIS! My SIL got me a Marshall’s gift certificate for my Birthday, she knows me so well!


After I was done at the gym, Hubs and I took off for our date night. We got a gift certificate to Chili’s a long time ago we both decided tonight was the night to use it 🙂


I was SHOCKED to see a SKINNY Margarita on the menu. I used to get Margaritas all the time, until I learned how many calories were in them. These one’s only had 100 calories!!! I love that there is a pic of a Brownie Sundae right next to it..ha ha.


It was really tart!!! I liked it but would have liked some cherry with it. Tasted more like limeade.


While we waited for our food we played with the Hipstomatic App on my iPhone.


I ordered the Caribbean Salad with Shrimp. These salad was packed with fresh fruit and dried cherries. The shrimp was very tasty 🙂


Hubby ordered the chicken sandwich (I may or may not have stole some of his fries 😉 )


Then it was off to Costco.  Date nights at Costco are always the best! I swear no matter where we go together we always have so much fun! My Husband is HILARIOUSE!!!!

I rode around in the cart 🙂 It’s fun to feel 5 again!


Hubby was a great driver 🙂


Ok, is this seriously what Ritz just named their new crackers?!!


On the way home I stole one of our Skinny Cow’s that we bought..mmm..


While we were at Costco we picked up a little gift for the child.


Love at first site 🙂


Oh my boys.
