Accountability Monday: 12/5/2016

Good morning!

I leave for Walt Disney World in just 30 days! Matthew leaves in 28 days! WHAT?! That also means we are only 33 days from the start of the Walt Disney World Marathon. 😲😲😲 It feels like part happiness, part terror. But mostly happiness.

Training:
Wednesday- 2.5 treadmill miles, 30 minutes, 11:59 pace
Saturday- 10k race (my Garmin said 6.15 miles), 1:12:13, 11:38 pace (official results)
Sunday- Yoga wheel workout with some foam rolling and stretching

Maybe the treadmill is more exciting in black and white?

Pssst- my YogDev Yoga Wheel giveaway is still going on but hurry, you've only got two more days to enter! 

Food Find:
A fellow Weight Watcher turned me on to this yummy combination: peppermint tea + Weight Watchers Cafe Creations Mucho Mocha. It doesn't taste quite like a Starbucks peppermint mocha (my all-time favorite holiday drink) but it is pretty damn good. And has zero Smart Points, so there's that. 😄

This has quickly become my two o'clock staple. 

Weight:
+.4 this week.

Totally cool with this.

Non-Scale Victory:
This weekend, Matthew and I visited Hersheypark's Christmas Candylane and as we walked around all the chocolate bars for sale in Hershey's Chocolate World, I reminisced about the king-sized candy bars I used to eat on a weekly (sometimes more!) basis. It got me thinking about all the times I used to grab a donut or cookies or candy as my first choice for a snack.

This year, we did indulge in some divine hot chocolate made with real Hershey's and we split a s'more made with chocolate chip cookies and Reese's peanut butter cups. But I felt in control of what I was eating and still ate less than I would have previously. And I resisted the king-sized candy bars. 😃

For real, these s'mores are magical. 

Wishing you an awesome first week of December! Make it great, friends!
