Good morning and happy Boston Marathon Monday! Today is like the Super Bowl of running- I can't wait to track all my friends as they race- including Dani from Weight Off My Shoulders and Pam from We Run Disney!
Quick update on the ankle: I wore the boot almost all week and alternated icing and heating while elevating it every night. I ran the Sole of the City 10k (recap coming this week) and it felt totally fine. Later in the day, still felt great. On Sunday morning, I tentatively stepped out of bed and felt....nothing. Literally, my ankle felt fine all day long. Since I'm still not 100% sure what's causing the problem, I'm going to keep icing, heating, elevating, and stretching. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
Monday- Rest day
Tuesday- 40 minutes of yoga
Thursday- 30 minutes on the bike, 7.3 miles
Friday- Rest day
Saturday- Sole of the City 10k race, 1:11:00 total time, 11:27 pace
Sunday- Runner's World Core Workout, foam rolling, 20 minutes of yoga

If you love apple pie, you'll love this new recipe I found this week in my Weight Watchers Weekly (weekly booklet full of recipes, tips, and helpful WW advice). Slice and microwave an apple until soft, then drizzle it with two tablespoons of non-fat plain yogurt mixed with splenda and a few drops of vanilla extract. Sprinkle with cinnamon and enjoy!
While it doesn't taste exactly like apple pie, it's still pretty delicious. Technically, it's 0 points if you only use two tablespoons of yogurt- if you use three tablespoons, it becomes 1 PPV. Either way, it's a great, healthy alternative to satisfy your sweet tooth.
|Not a bad substitute for the real thing.|
142.6 as of 4/15/15

Here we go again on this weight-loss roller coaster. I'm going to keep doing what I've been doing- I know the scale will eventually reach the goal I want it to. Just keep moving forward and stay focused on goal :-)
How was your week? Are you watching the Boston Marathon today?
