Weekend Update


Well, another weekend has come and gone... ever so quickly of course.

I'm too tired to worry about posting photos... not that I took any (unfortunately). I will just recap for you.

Saturday:
woke up, ran to superstore, ran to shoppers (okay, didn't run... drove). Came home, ate breakfast (ww toast with pb2, fruit candy bites - 4pts) and managed to get myself on the treadmill for a half marathon. That's right folks, I jogged (ever so slowly) 13 miles... that's 20km (for us Canadians). It took me almost 2.5 hours. My feet were sore, my legs were sore, I wanted to sleep... but, I did it. Following the long jog I got my hair trimmed and then we headed out to a birthday dinner at Lonestar. I managed to avoid any alcohol, any fried nachos (with their home made salsa)... I ordered chicken breast, although did get talked into having some mushrooms and cheese on top of it... then it came with steamed veggies, coleslaw and a side of mashed potatoes. I asked for a baked potato instead of mashed potatoes... and put some of their salsa on the potato. I gave the coleslaw to alex (not that he even ate it). The chicken was cooked to perfection, but I could barely eat it all... I did share some with alex. We stopped for starbucks on the way home, but I didn't want to have a latte (didn't want to spend more points)... so, I asked for a coffee (0 points) with a sugar free shot of caramel syrup (0 points)... and I added some splenda. It was pretty good for 0 points! I started feeling really nauseated last night though... not sure if it was from the LONG jog, dinner, or the coffee. Total estimated points = 19.

Today:
Woke up, headed to Pontypool and attended Kristen's candle party (which I TOTALLY forgot to send Tara a reminder email about!!!! I remembered when I was driving there today). My biggest challenge for today? NOT eating any of the unhealthy food... and it was EVERYWHERE! I had made 2 kinds of cookies and 2 kinds of fudge (did I mention 1 kind of fudge was chocolate/peanut butter? Did you know I LOVE chocolate peanut butter? My mom also bought a huge bag of little caramel filled chocolate bunnies or chocolate filled white bunnies from costco! brutal!!). I didn't avoid it all together. I did eat the leftover chocolate from the knife after I cut up the fudge. I also had about 4 kettle baked chips and about 5 robin egg whoppers (because Simon literally put them in my mouth! You cannot reject gifts from your nephew!). I bought some candles, enjoyed visiting with people... and got to see my adorable nephew. Pretty good day!

Here's what I ate... no real meals, just snacking all day.
Breakfast: oatmeal w/ flax seed (2)
Rest of the day... 3 dare vinta crackers (2), 1.5 weight watcher tortillas that I baked myself on saturday and cut into triangles... idea from tara's blog last year and an alternate to tostitos (2), spoonful of nacho dip that was made with low fat cream cheese, fat free miracle whip, ff sour cream, salsa and light cheese (2), baby gherkins x6 (1), cheese (2), fudge (?2), kettle baked chips (2), robins egg whoppers (2), fruit bites (2)
Total: 19

I think that summarizes my weekend!! I got talking to Kurt again today and he really recommends that I go to the running room (which my better half has suggested as well) to get my running shoes. He goes there every year to get his shoes. Maybe I will have to stop in at the one across the street from alex's office this week!

Happy week... let's make it another good weight loss week!!

Ok lady, if you're going to run a HALF MARATHON, you NEED to eat more!!! Take that :)
Also, you weren't running slowly if you finished in 2.5hrs! That's freakin' good!! And you deserved an alcoholic drink after that! You probably earned about 20 activity points (no joke) and your body will be mad if you don' refuel it!!
Sounds like you had a great weekend...I wish I would have remembered the candle party! L and P and I were hanging out on Sunday, we could have come and bought candles and introduced the nephews!! Maybe next time!
