This past Wednesday and Thursday, I've been working at the base and preparing for my upcoming deployment. It's been a lot of computer based training, and getting my shots up to date (Anthrax & Typhoid...not fun at all). On Thursday morning, I had to take my PT test because I was coming due. The weather was pretty cool in the morning and I was a little worried for my run because my chest always hurts when I run in cold weather. We started out with a waist measurement (down 1 inch from last year-yay!), and then it was one minute push-ups and one minute sit ups. I completed 31 push ups & 42 sit ups. Then it was outside for my run. I ran my mile and a half in 13:38. A HUGE improvement from last year, which was 14:05. I was pretty happy about that, especially since I had been dreading the run portion. When our fitness monitor put my scores into the computer, she said, "Maria, you got an excellent! Good job!" Out of the 8 PT tests I've taken, that was my first EVER excellent. I was so happy and proud of myself! I definitely deserve a trip to Lululemon this week :-)
On Friday, my mom and I went to Kohls and I bought some fall wardrobe items, including brown flats & a poncho. I'm very excited to wear my poncho! I think we might go back today for more. After our shopping trip we went to the Original Pancake House & I ordered my first gluten free meal: pancakes! They were so good! They tasted just like regular pancakes to me, very light and fluffy.

Well, I'm off to get ready for the Wine and harvest Festival. I woke up early this morning, ran 3 miles & did fitnessista's ab burner! It was a tough one, but yet they all are. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
