Accountability Monday: 11/21/16

Good morning and..... HAPPY THANKSGIVING WEEK!

I hope you have wonderful plans for later this week that involve family, friends, and good food!

Matthew and I are planning all that plus a 23 mile run- aren't we lucky?! You can check out more about our training plan in yesterday's post.

Monday- PT and hip workout
Tuesday- 30 minute walk
Wednesday- PT workout
Thursday- 1.5 mile run, 11:33 pace
Saturday- PT and hip workout
Sunday- 6 miles, 12:19 pace

The boot is off! Yay! On the advice of my orthopedic doctor, I took the boot off this week in the evenings and slowly made my way back to running. So far, so good. I have some soreness in my feet but nothing too unusual. I'm starting to think that I'm just getting old and these aches and pains in my feet aren't serious- just annoying. I have a follow-up appointment with the doctor tomorrow so we'll see what she has to say.

20 mph winds during our run yesterday.

Food Find:
For the football games this weekend, I made skinnytaste's crock pot buffalo chicken lettuce wraps with skinnytaste creamy blue cheese dressing. Y'all need to make this one- it is so good! If you like buffalo wings, this is a tasty, low-fat substitute. The lettuce wrap and carrots provided a solid crunch and the dressing was heavenly! And for just 4 Smart Points per wrap, these are a guilt-free way to enjoy one of my favorite flavors.

I have no idea! Had to miss my meeting last week due to a work meeting so I'm operating without the scale for the moment. 😉

Non-Scale Victory:
Matthew was out of town for a few days this week and usually this is a tricky time for me- I tend to binge eat when he's not home. Don't ask me why, it just tends to happen. But- this time, I didn't binge once! I'm proud of sticking to my plan and not using food to cope with my emotions. *high fives self*

Have a great week, friends and an even better Thanksgiving! Check back on Thursday for my annual "what I'm thankful for" post!


  1. That wrap looks delicious, I'll have to give that a try :-) Thanks for sharing!
