I chose not to follow any type of training plan for the Disney Princess Half Marathon, other than increasing my long runs by a mile every other week. So, I had every intention of busting out another 11 miles yesterday, until a new friend alerted me to this little snippet on Facebook
Not wanting to hurt myself, I changed my plans to run for 84 minutes at about the same time that I found this beauty in my iTunes account:
Be still my show-tunes-loving-heart. I even downloaded the 3D version, but was too scared to wear the glasses while running. It is a miracle I stay on the treadmill most days--adding fireworks shooting towards me would be pushing my luck.
I think I have come on to something here. Running + "live" concert = PUMPED. So pumped, in fact, that I alternated the treadmill speeds between 6.0 to 6.5 mph. In the end I had run 8.8 miles in 84 minutes which is ~ a 9:30 minute mile average. Maybe next week I will run to Mama Mia!
Long run days = two breakfasts days. Love it.

I had a little container of Yoplait Key Lime Greek yogurt patiently waiting in my fridge to add to my next smoothie after reading *this recipe.* Maybe it was because I added everything but the kitchen sink, but I didn't even taste the key lime and it added considerably more carbs than plain Greek Yogurt. Bummer.

Lunch, dinner, and dessert were repeats from earlier this week. Big Mommna doesn't waste any food.

My Friday night was super crazy.
I popped some popcorn (7), changed into the PJs JFO gave me after hearing about my Princess Minnie Costume plans (Thanks Momma!),

Last, but not least, the winner of the iTunes gift card giveaway is Kim from Kickin' It with Kim,
LOL..that picture is hilarious! I had the same music on my iPod for almost a year! Around Christmas time I finally downloaded some new music. I listen to country a lot, so I really wasn't familiar with a lot of the new Top 40 stuff. (Hello old) LMFAO - Party Rock Anthem always gets me pumped up! I also have a few Katy Perry and Lady Gaga songs.
This is absolutely perfect because is a new friend and she promoted my giveaway on her blog! I <3 random number generators! Thanks to everyone for your great ideas! I can't wait to start downloading.
Thought for the day:
Daily points (31) + Running Points (18) - Eating Points(51) = -2
Weekly points (49) - Monday (4) - Tuesday (0) - Wednesday (0) - Thursday (7) - Friday (2) = 36
