Weekend Highlights

Healthy Start

Although BBQ Fest and Memorial Day weekend were both fun, I'm starting to see the impact of my eating indulgences on the scale! So, my goal for June is to eat healthier and bump up the exercising. I had a good start this weekend.


On Friday night, I did the Harbor Town 5K. This is a great race that goes through the Harbor Town neighborhood, a cute little island community downtown.The neighbors cheer you on and I really enjoyed the occasional sprinkler to cool me down. This year, the weather was perfect as the Memphis heat took a little dip after some much needed rain. The race has grown quite a bit since the last time I ran this as I heard there were 1,600 participants this year!





Lauren & I post race

On Saturday, Lauren and I got together again for a fun bike ride to Overton Park. We checked out the new dog park which I hope to take Juno to soon. It is super nice and well shaded.

I picked up one of these cute watermelons which I would strongly recommend if you haven't gotten one this season. It was nice and sweet! I am a little perplexed as to why there were seeds in a "seedless watermelon" but oh well.

Sunday I exercised at the mall...hehe... I did some much needed shopping to buy some new summer clothes which I'm really excited about. That night we grilled out fish and squash (which I will post soon) and made S'mores. The good thing about this dessert is that it is easy to limit your portions (vs. baking a whole batch of cookies). We stuck to one each.

Have a great week!
