Happy Monday! 

Welcome to the second edition of Accountability Monday: a short post recaping my week with regard to running and healthy eating.

I hope you had a great week- I absolutely did.  We actually had an exciting weekend- we rescued a kitten from a storm drain in our neighborhood! During a walk Friday night, we kept hearing a kitten mewling but couldn't figure out where it was. We had heard that some of our neighbors got evicted and just let a momma cat and her four kittens go. Eventually we figured out it was coming from the storm drain. Long story short- we called the fire department and little "Buster" spent the night with us once out of the drain. He is currently living with another neighbor until we can get him (and his siblings) to a no-kill shelter in the area.

I also had a great week with regard to training, nutrition and weight-loss. I finally got in some cross-training and I survived a weekend with family without feeling like I over-indulged.

Monday- Jillian Michaels "Ripped in 30"
Tuesday- 45 minute run
Wednesday- Pilates DVD
Thursday- 45 minute run
Friday- 50 minute walk
Saturday- 4 mile run
Sunday- Rest day

14.5 miles total

I've been trying some new foods this week. I bought Chocolate PB2- oil-free, powdered peanut butter- and spread it on waffles; amazing! Buddy Fruit has come in handy before my workouts- they are 1-3 points a piece and are super yummy. I also tried the grilled watermelon and kale salad at Longhorn Steakhouse- I'm not a fan of raw Kale. And I might have had a Sam Adams Seasonal at the Harrisburg Senators game :-)

162 pounds as of 7/9/14 weigh-in.
-1 from last week.
-28.4 since January 2013.
-40 since heaviest: 202 in 2005.

QOTD: How was your week? What keeps you accountable?
