View SAXONHARP's food & exercise for this day
Another puppy was adopted! All puppies were adopted from this litter except for our girl Liza. Hopefully next weekend she will find her forever home. With just 1 puppy it is easier to have her in the "general community." Our non foster babies are getting used to having a puppy around them more often.
On Saturday I would normally do a fitness class in the morning but a friend of mine (the one who I signed up for the5K) wanted me to review her meal logs because she had stopped losing weight, she actually started gaining a little. When I started going through her logs I saw that she was not meeting her calories. I went back through a week or more worth of logs and come to find out she was not logging everything. I think we are all guilty of this when we stop seeing the results. She also eat zero veggies and little protein. She was very thankful for the help. Helping others does help me to stay focused.
Since I missed any opportunity to do a exercise class Saturday morning my girls and I went to the gym anyway and did our own workout. I was proud of myself for not just skipping a workout because I could not make a class. I love it that the girls and I are doing this together. Do you see who was missing? My hubby.......I love him anyway
Sunday was training team. We got snow!!!! I was a little nervous about the 11 miles I had to do since I missed the long run from the week before. For the conditions, I felt great. There were3 inches of powder snow and then under the snow there was ice. There were also these crazy wind gusts. If you were anywhere near tress when there was a gust of wind it felt like you were being attached by the snow. I am strange but I truly enjoyed the challenge of this run and felt great afterwards. The only thing that made me feel a little bad was that I got more brooks clothes that won't fit me.......grrrr I made a deal with myself that I can try them on when I am 220. When tried the brooks stuff before I was 225.
There were a group of gals that were doing 6 miles and I got them back safe and sound and they were happy to complete their run in the snow. There was another gal who wanted to do 9. She said since I was running she would go ahead and do it.....she wanted to stop and walk at the very end but I told her she only had .10 to go and she couldn't
She got her 9 miles in and then I did 2 more on my own and I felt great afterwards.
One the biggest loser last week they showed a recipe with a sweet potato and ground turkey. I made this for my superbowl food and it was really good. We had other "real" super bowl food around, nachos and wings. I had a little bite of it but I really liked my healthy stuff better. My only bad was the cookie cake but I LOVED every bite of it and it was worthy every bite and calorie.
I have a lighter running schedule this week because I have a 4 mile race on Saturday called the Truffle shuffle. There is a chocolate finishers medal
My goal is to get as close to 40 minutes as I can. I am going to work real hard not to stress about the time and just focus on nutrition and the training I need to do and then see what happens on Saturday. Here is to another great week. I was 331.75! The scale is a moving and I am feeling good about it all.
