**Fitness Friday: Week 24!**

Happy Friday, ya'll! I'm so excited for this weekend - we are going to see Jason Aldean and Jake Owen here in Charleston tonight then headed up to Columbia tomorrow for my old roommate's wedding. I'm really looking forward to both, should be a GREAT time.

My dress for the wedding (still lovinggg Shoshanna!) 



As you know, it is Fitness Friday and we are also linking up still for 50 in 30!

Yesterday, I linked up with Nikki for 30 in 30 and at that point, I had 3.25 miles for the week. I went for a great run last night after work and banged out another 3.01 miles.

Total for the week - 6.26
Total for the month - 15.67

Looks like I shouldn't have any problem hitting the 30 mile mark, but still pushing for 50!!
I also attended two Body Pump classes this week - feeling good! I'm hoping to get in a quick little run tomorrow morning, too, before we head off to Columbia.

Tonight before the concert, we are getting together with a few friends to tailgate. We are picking up some delicious barbeque from Jim N Nick's (one of my faves) and I decided to bring a healthy salad along as well. This would be a great salad to bring along to a cookout or to have anytime during the week :)


Greek Salad with Homemade Greek Dressing

Salad ingredients:
1 cucumber, quartered and sliced into chunks
2 roma tomatoes, diced
2-3 oz. crumbled feta cheese
2 tbsp. red onion, chopped
1/4 c. greek dressing

Dressing ingredients:
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
1.25 tsp fresh oregano, chopped (or dried)
1.25 tsp. fresh basil, chopped
1 small garlic clove
1/2 tsp. dijon mustard
1/4 tsp. honey
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper

Directions:
For the dressing, add to a seal-able jar (mason jars work perfectly) and shake to combine.
Chill in fridge for 10-15 minutes.

Add all chopped ingredients to a bowl and toss with dressing. Sprinkle feta cheese on top. Enjoy!

For added protein serve with grilled chicken or fish.


You can also easily double this recipe if you have a larger crowd (this is what I did!)

Special shout out to Ashley over at Turqoise & Teale for posting this on her blog recently :)


Hope you all have a great weekend!!
