Steals and Deals and a Bit of Motivation

I am the bargain shopping queen. It’s very rare that I will pay full price for ANYTHING! And if I do, you know it was something I was dying over. Here are a couple steals and deals I’ve tracked down this week –

51zjY8T4LAL._SL1024_ Groupon has a deal for Refurbished Apple TV for $58.99. Are you serious right now? We don’t have cable in our master bedroom, we just get by with our Apple TV! You can stream Hulu and Netflix on there, and a lot of times Apple will offer you free movies! Do yourself a favor and snatch this deal, that’s a bargain.

There’s a great retail store called Entourage Clothing that has a couple locations in Georgia and they have adorable and affordable clothes, shoes and accessories. I’m a frequent shopper. They sent me an email that said there’s an additional 40% off their sale items with the code “SUMMERSALE”, plus if you text “ENTWEB” to 313131 you get 10% off your first order (you can immediately unsubscribe from the texts after you get the coupon code). They’ve got a lot of cute dresses and rompers I’ve got my eye on. This maxi? $25. This romper? $16. Yes.

My run this morning – 2 miles warm up at 9:41 pace, then the last 4 miles at 9:23. I decided to push a little at the end and did an extra .2 miles (for a full 10k) at 8:44 pace.

IMG_1115I have some exciting / cool running updates to share with you guys next week, so stay tuned for more!

Our weekend plans include the Atlanta Street Food Festival (see yesterday’s post…can you tell I’m excited?!) on Saturday, then lots of errands and running around on Sunday. Hopefully the weather will be good so we can finally take the dogs to hike Kennesaw Mountain. Also…drum roll…

selflessposter-Copy-1000x600The hubs picked the movie this time, although I’m not upset about seeing Ryan Reynolds without his shirt on – I mean this movie looks really interesting (what?! haha!)! Movie review next week, I promise!

In case you need a little motivation to get you through your long run this weekend (mine is just 7 miles, not too scary)…

0d040112f3fd5cb9f93a136e8561298eAfter taking last week off I’m having to ease back in to my long runs to avoid injury. Just remember, no matter how much time you’ve taken off or no matter how long or short your run (or other exercise is), you have the power to make it great! Set a goal for yourself, then push yourself a little past that. If your long run this weekend is 3 miles, once you hit that 3 mile mark, sprint for 30 seconds (you’ll feel AMAZING). If you’re running a 10k this weekend, find a running partner at mile 1 or 2 and stick with them right until the end, and then hit your stride at the finish and pass them. It’s all about doing a little bit more than you think you can. That’s how you grow and improve. So find your goal, and then surpass it!

Happy running!
