Fitness Friday–6/20

This has been a full week so far and I’m so thankful it’s Friday!

Apart from work, a good portion of my afternoons were spent at Hobby Lobby and at home working on things for an upcoming baby shower. I can’t wait to show you everything I’m creating for the shower! The Silhouette Cameo is amazing, y’all!

We also had our Relay for Life Wrap-up party last night at a local restaurant which was a lot of fun! It’s great to see teams come together to celebrate the payoff from all our hard work over the past year.  Along with Relay, we’re also working on nailing down final logistics for our Gleaux Run coming up in August – can’t wait!

Jason and I finally saw Maleficent a few weekends ago and loved it! I was surprised by several of the plot twists and turns, but it sure kept me guessing!

Here’s a look at my workouts for the week:


SaturdayHouston Day
Sunday – Rest Day
Monday –  3 miles with Jason
Tuesday – 30 minutes of throwing the softball with Jason
Wednesday – Squats/Lunges/Crunches routine
Thursday – Meeting after work -  unable to run
Friday – 4 mile run

Saturday, I’m meeting up with a friend for an early morning run around town. Our running group is participating in an out of town trail race this weekend, so there’s no group meeting. I’m thinking maybe 8 miles…we will see how hot and humid it is in the morning before I commit to that!

Lately, I’ve stuck to running late in the afternoons (right as the sun is going down) because the temps are more bearable at that time. It really makes a difference! 

I have two new songs on my running playlist that I just can’t stop listening to!

  • Best Day of my Life – American Authors
  • The Story of my Life – One Direction (WAY cheesy, I know!)

What’s your favorite song on your running playlist? Have you seen Maleficent yet? Plan to? What were your thoughts?


  1. i WONDER what baby shower you could be talking about? :)

  2. I LOVED Maleficent! I saw it while I was in California! It had so many twists and turns for sure! And girl I love some One Direction too! ;-) Have a great weekend Karen!!!

    1. Glad I'm not the only fan here! :D Thanks, Mindy!

  3. I can't wait to see your creativity come to life with what you have done for the shower? Is it a surprise?

    1. Sort of...we are kicking her out of the house so we can decorate. I'll be sure and do a post after the shower on everything we put together! :D

  4. I have not seen Maleficent yet and don't think I will have the time to see it in theatres.

    Favorite song to run with is Mandisa's "Overcomer." Favorite new songs to the playlist are "The Black Pearl" from the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie soundtrack and "(There's Gotta be) More to Life by Stacie Orrico.

    1. All great songs!! Ahhh Stacie Orrico! I must pull that CD out - definitely brings back fun memories!!

  5. I do want to see Malifiecent, but I will probably wait for it to come to Redbox.

  6. I can't wait to see what you've put together for the shower. It sounds cute and very creative!

  7. I LOVED Maleficent!! Such a great movie and Angelina Jolie played her character wonderfully!
