TGIF, it’s finally Friday! Even better, I’ve got a three-day weekend ahead since I get Memorial Day off from work. The only unfortunate thing is, the weather forecast is calling for a wet, rainy holiday weekend here in Central Florida. I just hope I can get my run in on Saturday morning at least.
Comic book movies. I finally watched Guardians of the Galaxy one and two this week, as well as Black Panther. Loved all three movies. Now, I want a baby Groot! Guardians is definitely a fun one! Black Panther was very well done, loved the action and hope they make more in the series. I never read either comic book, but I would love to check them out, as I’m a fan.
Found money. Three months ago, when I was in Publix shopping, I found $40 on the floor. I turned it into customer service because that’s a lot of money. They took my information and said if no one claimed it, that I could come back and it was mine. I went back a couple of days ago, and no one had come forward. I’m now $40 richer. Figured I will save it for a rainy day or something.
Weight loss update. As of this week, I’m down another pound! That’s just over 4lbs total weight loss. Getting closer to my weight loss goal! I’m now 2.4lbs from 130 pounds. I would love to hit my best maintained weight of 125lbs, but I will be happy with 128lbs. I already feel better and lighter. I’m sure this is going to help my running this season.
OWYN protein drinks. I had the opportunity to try out a new protein drink called OWYN. They are vegan plant-based protein with an amazing taste. They are made with pea, organic pumpkin and flaxseed ingredients delivering 9 essential amino acids. The protein drinks come in three flavors, Dark Chocolate, Cold Brew Coffee, and Vanilla protein varieties. My favorite by far is the Cold Brew Coffee flavor, it’s perfect in the morning to start off the day. They also make protein powder in Dark Chocolate, Vanilla, Matcha, Tropical and Strawberry & Banana protein flavors. I have rarely loved a vegan protein as much as I love Vega, but this one is a new favorite! Check it out online here.
Training season is beginning. The new season of Orlando Galloway is kicking off in 8 days! I’m looking forward to seeing what the new season brings. Also, I will officially start some speed training for the Peachtree Road Race next month. I’m easily able to run a 10k, but I’d to get in some track work to help me do my best on race day.
Do you have any Memorial Day weekend plans?
