How about some late-night accountability?!
In case you missed it, Matthew and I ran the Charles Street 12 last weekend. After the race, I posted on instagram my thoughts about my performance. In short, I felt like crap. I didn't feel strong or accomplished; I felt tired and uncomfortable.
I know it's the lack of training that led those feelings. I barely ran in August- how are you supposed to feel great about something you barely do?
So these past two weeks I've tried to go back to what works: running three times a week, strength training, fueling my body with the right amount of healthy foods.
Labor Day- 3.3 mile walk
Tuesday- 2.36 mile run, 30 minutes
Wednesday- 3 mile walk
Thursday- 3 mile run, 10:22/10:18/10:05 splits. Core work and planks.
Friday- 30 minute walk
Saturday- 4 mile run, 12:09 pace
Sunday- 2 mile walk. Runner's World Strength Anywhere Workout plus squats, planks, glute bridges, and push-ups
Monday- 30 minute walk and Weight Watcher's Stability Ball Workout (arms and abs)
Today- 30 minute walk
So I made Skinnytaste's Turkey Santa Fe Zucchini Boats... except our grocery store had really small, wimpy looking zucchinis so I made them as stuffed peppers instead. They turned out pretty well!
+3 pounds since last week.
I have no idea what's going on with my weight right now. I've consulted my Weight Watchers Leader and some of my WW friends but there's no real answer. I've been making good choices, working out, and limiting my splurges. I can't explain this weight gain. Instead of focusing on what I can't control (the scale), I'm focusing on making the next right decision; whether that's choosing what to eat, working out when I don't feel like it, or walking away from the many treats that are constantly in my office.
A few weeks ago I tried "golf" for the first time. Basically, we went to the driving range and I actually hit some balls! And I enjoyed it! It was way out of my comfort zone but I'm really glad I tried it.

Do you golf? Have you ever visited a driving range?
