Busy busy busy! The third week of summer camp is beginning tomorrow already. I'm still hanging around 170 but I can run 7 miles now! I started tracking my food again on Friday and I have no excuses not to at this point. I have the SP tracking app on my phone and I have at least a 20 minute break between most of my Drama classes that I'm teaching at camp. I've also found support in coworkers who share similar goals, and we've decided to form a "pact" of sorts to hold each other accountable.
You would think it'd be easy, but at this camp, the employees are given lunch everyday! It's a great perk because I don't have to think about packing a lunch the night before, but it's easy to get carried away. Plus, sometimes for us vegetarians the only things to choose from are salad, PB&J, or a cheese sandwich. So it's easy to justify one "extra PB&J" because I didn't get to have the chicken tenders, etc.
I started using protein powder this weekend. I already concocted an awesome recipe for a protein "frappuccino," using a frozen banana, soy milk, instant coffee and chocolate protein powder. It's going to be the way I start my morning from now on!
In running news, I finally registered for a half marathon in October, and I'm up to 7 miles on my weekly long run. I think I'm doing pretty well considering the heat--which I historically do NOT do well in. I sweat so much! I get some looks while I'm out running, but I don't care because it makes me feel great when I'm done.
