Good afternoon - I hope you all had a great weekend! Can you believe it’s March already?!
On Saturday night, we went out to celebrate my dad and stepmom’s birthdays.
My dad got this awesome looking cake from a nearby bakery:
I will admit that I didn’t eat very well this weekend. I worked so hard for 12.5 days and then I just went a little overboard with the food during the weekend.
Honestly, it sucked and I was upset with myself last night. I ate so good for almost two weeks and was feeling really good about myself and then I threw all my hard work out the window over the course of the weekend.
Of course, there is a difference between enjoying yourself in moderation and going overboard. I went overboard. And when that happens, I recognize how it makes me feel physically and emotionally, and I remember that for the next time I’m reaching for that 15th cookie
Sometimes you fall off the horse and you just need to get right back on, and that’s what I am doing.
On Sunday morning, I taught BodyPump at the gym. It was a smaller class due to the snow, but Danny took the class too, so that was fun.
Sunday afternoon, we had lunch at my in-laws house. I spent the afternoon playing Sonic on their old Sega.
My brother and I grew up playing that game and it reminded me of my childhood playing it again.
- Ran three miles – indoor track
- Abs and stretching
Last week, I was running two miles at a time. Today, I took it up to three miles. I am slowly increasing my mileage to see how my hip and quad feel.
When I am running, my hip aches, but it feels fine later in the day. My quad doesn’t hurt while I run usually, but it hurts afterwards. So much fun.
I feel pretty good running right now and am working up to 5 miles for the Shamrock Shuffle. After that I’ll probably stick to 5ks just so I don’t hurt my hip anymore.
Speaking of 5ks, I signed up for my first color run. It’ll also be Jaden’s first 5k – which means I’ll be walking most of it with him which I look forward to because he’s so happy about it.
Danny and Jacob are going to run it, and my dad and stepmom are going to walk it. Jaden is so excited to be doing his first 5k, and he’s really excited that it’s a color run.
I am back on track with my eating today. I have been hearing good things about Earth Balance peanut butter, so when I was at Whole Foods last week, I picked up a jar to try. I got the creamy natural peanut butter with flax seed.
They also have a coconut peanut butter that I’ve heard is really good, but I’m not a huge coconut fan. The regular peanut butter was really good and I would definitely buy it again.
Have a great afternoon!
- Did you workout today?
- What was your favorite game as a kid?
- Favorite peanut butter? I usually just buy the Jif Natural peanut butter.
