What’s New with You? Link-up

Hi all!

Today I am linking up with Gretchen & Kristen for their “What’s New with You?” link up!



I’ve updated you guys a little bit on my summer plans, but I wanted to let you all know how it’s going!

I finished the Burn Phase of ChaLEAN Extreme (I swear, I’ll get that review up ASAP) & I’ll give you a little spoiler: I lost 2.6 lbs, 1.5 inches around my waist, & 2 inches from my hips! I feel stronger & my biceps have gotten bigger… I keep looking down at them & I’m pretty proud! Push Phase started on Monday – & I’m continuing to love it!

Classes started up for me again last Monday. It’s an English 102 class & it turns out we’ll really only have about 6 classes total, so the teacher is making it pretty simple. We get to write about a film of our choice, & the 3 papers we have to write center around the film we choose. I chose “Fed Up”& depending on how my first paper turns out, I may make share it here with you all!

Track Tuesday work-outs started this past Tuesday. Coach had us do a 2 mile time trial (8 laps around the track is so boring) & I was nervous all day! I think all of us were. In the end, I finished in 20:37.. not where I wanted to be, but it gives me something to work on for the summer.

I leave for Florida in 3 weeks! My brother lives in Tampa & I can’t wait to see him & for him to show me around where he lives. It will be a short trip, but it will be a great one regardless!

Okay all – what’s new with you? Nothing too exciting on my end – so share something fun with me! 🙂

    Busy time of year for you! I used to run the 3200 in track and you’re right- 8 laps is very boring! Not my favorite event. Congrats on getting stronger and good luck in the next phase! Thanks for linking up with us 🙂

    Those inches are great! I’m trying to do the same myself by mixing up my workout routine.

    I had planned to go to the Track Tuesday & do my 2 mile time trial, but I was super nervous & I had only run once since the weather got warm & I practically died. So I chickened out. AH.

      Thanks Jessie!!! Coach said we could do one next week too if we wanted. At least to get your times for the summer!
