But it could have been better. I didn't get a crazy big workout in, but i did go for a brisk cold 60 minute walk with J on Saturday.
Friday I did make myself proud though. J and I met up with a friend couple and headed to a Casino night fundraiser for Parent Resource Center in Fond Du Lac. We ate a quick dinner before leaving- I had a sammich. Then when we got there i didn't drink. WHAAA?! Yeah, I know. I actually didn't feel like drinking and I really had a great time without it. I did snack a little more on meatballs and mini sandwiches and eventually had one beer. But it was a big win for me! And I honestly did have a great time. On the way home I got a small strawberry shake from BK, and J got Tbell where I got 2 loaded grillers. So I wasn't able to make it a perfect night, but I made changes none the less.
Saturday I ate minimally and pretty healthy! I had a bagel with pb and cherry jam (soo good!) and that was all I had until wheat thins + chipotle cr cheese for a snack. I hung out with my sister and friend for the night. I Did have quite a few beers. But after the hockey game and some dancing I was fine to drive home. I got McDonalds.. I was so hungry! J ate most of my fries and then I had a buffalo Mcchicken and a McDouble. I was definitely over on points.
I had a small hangover Sunday morning when J made omlettes for bfast. After that though I was good! So I spent a good 2.5. hours vacuuming, picking up and dusting. At least I was moving, right?!
I have been weighing myself every day for the past week just to see the patterns and because i'm curious. I definitely weigh less the morning after a big workout. I came out of the weekend .5lb higher than Friday. And I am down 1.2lbs since last Tuesday! We will see what it will be tomorrow after a full week!
I feel solid. Like im in the mindset to make a different, long term, change this time. I just need to get a little better to make it a "lifestyle" change. Because my lifestyle is about as Wisconsin as you can get. Without the sauerkraut.
Running has been going okay. I'm slowly getting back there. i did a 5K last week with a time of 38:36. Meh! gotta shave 5 minutes off that to get back where I was. and I gotta shave 9 minutes off to hit my Sub 30min 5k! I start 12-week 10K training on the 24th. Woohoo!! It has me running 5 days a week plus one for XT which, come on, is not super realistic. I will do my best, but I will probably kill at least one run every week. Definitely keep the long run, XT, strength and intervals. Here's a picture of it that will probably be too small to read.
Today the high is 46º so I am going to attempt my first outside RUN in a LONGGGG time! Im hoping it goes well. I am going to shoot for a 5K time at least under 38:36. Ill post what it was later tonight!
