The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World Review

This post is sponsored by The Millennial's Guide To Changing The World book by Allison Sher.

I was given a digital copy of this book. I thought that it would be good to read, even though I am a Gen X'er. There is just so much talk about the Millennial's right now that I thought that it would be good to get to know what is going on inside their head.

About the Book  The Millennial's Guide to Changing the World teaches young people everything they need to know to change the world, while building a happy, healthy adult life for themselves. It explains how our current social systems work, the challenges young people are inheriting and how millennials can step into our power to create a critical mass conversion to solve them. Everything from politics to spirituality to love relationships to education to sex to economics to mental health is covered. And it includes 50 or so juicy, true life stories from millennials across the country…

Week In Review - Week 1 - 50K Training

Sorry for the lack of posts this week. Just busy running and getting holiday stuff done.

But I did get my workouts in, minus 2 scheduled miles on Tuesday and Wednesday. This last week was my first "official" week of 50K training.

Monday - Rest day
Tuesday - 4 miles scheduled, 3 miles completed

I had to get an errand completed ASAP so I didn't have the time to finish my last mile. I didn't eat or drink any coffee beforehand and really had no energy. I was actually kinda glad to get pulled away from the treddy.
Wednesday - 6 miles scheduled, 5 completed

I don't remember why I cut this a mile short. An errand for the BF or something like that.
Thursday - 4 miles scheduled, 4 miles completed.

Friday - Rest day. Got a hair cut. And had a Krispy Kreme. I HAD to indulge a craving I have had for so long. So random to want a doughnut, but I am now sure that I want one for in my ultra drop bag one day!
Saturday - 16 miles  scheduled, 6 completed

I went to the Pulse and registered for the Run 4 Luv 10K in Feb. (Half off registrations that day!) We had lunch of Los Betos and I had a burrito. Which wasn't the best choice. It felt like I had a rock in my gut. I went to the gym with the intent to getting my scheduled miles done. But I had to switch my Saturday/Sunday runs around because I forgot my workout shirt. When I got to the gym to change, I noticed I had packed everything else, but my workout shirt.

Can you say I was bummed. I did this treddy workout insanely slow because I didn't want to soak my favorite tee and stain it with sweat. But I rolled up my sleeves and got it done.

Sunday - 6 miles scheduled, 16 completed!

I spent 2 hours on Saturday night (where I stayed home) and downloaded new music for my ipod. Wow. New music really is the treddy mood lifter. 16 miles on the treddy is a new record for me. I also cannot remember the last time I did 16 miles.

This week I got a new pair of Reeboks from a FitFluential Twitter chat. They are very lightweight, and extremely bright! They do have a higher heel then what I am used to but I am glad to have another pair of shoes.

I also got my headbands from the week 1 Frosty Fitness Challenge. The blue Bondiband above and this black & white one.

The BF said my headband was sexy. He's weird. ;-)

What are the highlights from your week? Have you ever forgot something essential for the gym?


  1. I love those Reebok shoes. I saw that they had them in pink and I really want them bad. Congrats on winning the bondi bands from the frosty fitness challenge. :-)
