AM: 9/15/14

Hello and happy Monday!

Last week was a doozy and I'm just so happy to have a new week. It's time to hit the reset button- especially with my grazing, out-of-control eating patterns that re-emerged this week. I am stressed at work and stressed about my foot. And because my foot has been acting up, I haven't been as active as I was all through the summer. I am hopeful that the MRI this Wednesday will shed some light on what's going on, how to fix it, and how to lessen the pain. I ran the Divas Half Marathon DC yesterday and it did not go as planned- but we finished! And it was Jen's first half! Stay tuned for the recap later this week.

Monday- Rest day
Tuesday- 45 minute run
Wednesday- Rest day
Thursday- 45 minute run
Friday- Rest day
Saturday- Divas Half Marathon with Jen
Sunday- Rest day

Total: 20.4 miles

Panera Chai Tea Lattes, beef brisket, pulled pork, Nutella milkshakes, cereal for breakfast, french fries, wine, Starbucks coffees, KIND bars, and smoked chicken thighs. That's all I have to say about #eatallthefoods week.

BUT! I will say that I did pretty awesome during Thursday Night Football. Football games are pretty tough for me as they typically revolve around food. However, I made a huge plate of fruit, veggies, and cheese with a few greek yogurt dips to snack on in addition to the turkey chili Matthew and I made for dinner. Though I ate more than I usually do on a Thursday night, it's nowhere near what I used to eat during a football game.

Skinny Vanilla Latte, Special K Cereal, Veggies galore, crazy-good carb loading before Saturday's half.

155.2 as of 9/10/14 weigh-in.
-.4 from last week.
-35.2 since January 2013.
-46.8 since heaviest; 202 in 2005.

A new week starts today! Let's get after it!

QOTD: What's your favorite part about Monday?


  1. Can't wait to read your Divas Half Recap and hear about your MRI results. Sending good thoughts your way!

    1. Thank you so much! I really appreciate the good vibes! This waiting game is killing me!

  2. I have heard so many great things about those diva races. I hope to run one sometime. Just wanted to say I have met you before. Over shamrock weekend. I was the one with Christine from werundisney. I had no idea you had a blog as well. I found yours on a Friday five where the theme was great blogs to follow and you were on a few. Now that I know you have will. I will be sure to follow you. -Lacey

    1. LACEY!!! I didn't know you were Fairytales and Fitness!! :-) The running/blogging community is a small world! I have read your posts before but didn't put two and two together! :-)

  3. I look forward to your recap. Your carbo loading dinner looks so good!

    1. Oh it totally was! I'm a sucker for anything "caprese" related!
