Welcome to this week's edition of GFF! I didn't document everything I ate this week, partly because Monday was Memorial Day, and I wanted to eat Blueberry Pie without reporting it to you...although I just did, ha! Anyway, I ate some Blueberry Pie this week, and some gourmet cookies (which were delicious), but I hope to get back to better eating next week, more like last week than this week. So here we go.
Eating - as I said, I did eat some desserts this week, but otherwise, I did pretty well. We finally got a new grill, and have been grilling more this week, steaks, hamburgers, etc. I'm excited to be able to grill this summer because it's pretty healthy to grill a protein, and just add a vegetable to the side, even something easy like salad. I also plan to eat more fruits this summer, when the lovely peaches from my area are in season! I didn't do terribly bad this week, but I plan to improve next week.
I did still drink at least 100 oz of water every day, and exchanged some of my diet cokes for Crystal Light Lemonade. I love that stuff! I still didn't snack this week like I should because I was in court all week, again! Busy busy busy.
Exercise - I apologize if you follow me on FB or Instagram, because if so, you've already seen all of these photos, but I posted the photo above on Memorial Day after my run. I've always had fairly muscular legs, but I can tell all this running is making them even more toned! I ran 6 miles this week! After my run tomorrow (a 5k), that will be 9 miles for the week!! In May, I have run 19 miles! My goal for June will be 30 miles. Let's see if I can do it.
I ran approximately 2 miles on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings, and I did 35 minutes of Intervals on the Elliptical machine on Wednesday and this morning. I wanted to run this morning, but since we have a 5k in the morning, I thought it would be better to do low impact today. I'm proud of my exercise this week, but I plan to increase my daily mileage next week, and do 30 miles in June!
Weight - oh the dreaded weight section! I did weigh myself this morning, and was pleasantly surprised to see that I weigh exactly what I weighed last week! Yes, I would rather the number go down, but I didn't expect it to this week since I ate some goodies for a few days. So, it was a welcome surprise to see that I didn't gain either. I'm totally happy with that.
Come back tomorrow for pictures and updates from Color Me Rad 5k!
