I hope this Monday finds you well and enjoying the third week of July! I still am finding myself in a bit of a slump weight-wise but I'm feeling really good about the choices I made this past week. Check them out below!
Monday- 60 minute walk
Wednesday- 2.9 mile run, 30 minutes, 10:30 pace, 45/30 intervals
Thursday- 30 minute walk
Friday- 30 minute walk
Saturday- 30 minute run, 45/30 intervals, no mileage or pace- NAKED RUN! :-)
Only once this week did I track my mileage and pace during my runs or walks- and it was glorious! While part of me really wanted to know the numbers, the other part of me was able to just enjoy the exercise.
Again this week, I cooked a recipe from Skinnytaste: Easy Macaroni Casserole. Again, it was delicious! This made eight generous servings and was something I'm sure I'll make again. It requires a little bit of preparation and cooking time but it is so worth it. And, my dish ended up looking very similar to what it's supposed to look like- wins all around!

+.2 from last week
I worked out FIVE times this week! I honestly can't remember the last time I worked out this much in one week. It was mentally tough though- many nights I was tired and thought of about 1,000 excuses to skip it. On those nights, I just promised myself that I would just walk for a half hour- something is better than nothing. That seems like my mantra these days, "something is better than nothing." I'm ok with that :-)
What's your mantra for days when you just can't even fathom getting in a workout?
