Come visit me at Girly Bitz. It's my other interweb hangout.

Eats for Saturday 11/6

MB and I spent the better part of the day lounging around in fuzzy blankets, napping on the couch. We were contemplating just skipping our run today. However, we decided to haul ourselves up off the couch and go hit the trails.
Unfortunately, once we got there and the reality of running 25 minutes straight actually hit us, we lost our momentum. We put in a good effort, but I think we only ended up running 10 minutes. That might even be a little generous. We did walk the whole trail and still got some exercise, but this was the second day in a row that we sucked on our C25K goals.
Our next run will be Tuesday because of our work schedules. We are going to have to bring it big time!
My plan is to do slim in 6 and/or yoga for the next two days just to keep myself motivated.

Eats for Friday 11/5

MB and I did day 17 of the couch to 5k today. It was kinda sucky because we were not really feeling it. We were still out there though.
Afterwards, we were kinda being lazy around the house. It was getting close to 8pm and neither of us wanted to make dinner. We ended up ordering a pizza. Apparently, TOM, who is visiting me for the second time this month already, likes pizza. Alot.
Ugh. It wasn't pretty, people.

Eats for Thursday 11/4

MB and I were supposed to go running today but he had a really stressful day and neither of us was in the mood. He got rear ended by someone on his way home from working a 30 some hour shift. Then, he had to arrange to get our car towed and get a rental car to get home in and deal with all the insurance stuff. That tends to ruin your day a little bit.
So, running was postponed for tomorrow.

Eats for Wednesday, 11/3

I owed a meal to my friend who dog-sat and house-sat for us a couple weeks ago. She wouldn't let me pay her so I told her I would take her out to dinner. We went to the local brewery because she had never been there. Plus, I wanted to go back and have the beer that tasted like a milkshake that MB had earlier this week.
My friend and I both had the burger with gorgonzola and mushrooms. Let me tell you, it was the best meal I have eaten in a really long time. The flavor of that burger with the cheese and the mushrooms (which were chopped almost like a relish) paired with the sweet, rich beer...Omg.
It was well worth the points.

weigh in 11/2/10

I'm down 1.2 for the week and 11.4 total.

In case you hadn't noticed, I've been a little absent from the BLitz this week. I meant to post my daily eats but I got tied up in some home maintenance issues on Thursday and Friday and just never got the chance to stop by and catch up.

Since I knew that I wasn't going to be able to post my eats, I did write them down each day. Overall, I did pretty well this week. My goal was to plan my meals each day and stick to the planned menu. That didn't work out too well for me.

I did okay the first day. I made chicken tacos at home, but then I ate a slice of unplanned pizza at work for dinner. Hey, it was free!

On Thursday and Friday, I found myself in the middle of an unexpected home repair disaster. I had a flood in the basement and found myself running back and forth to the hardware store all day long. By the time I was on my 3rd trip, I realized I hadn't eaten yet so I hit the drive through. It was either that or pass out in the middle of my flood.

I could've drowned. That would have been super embarrassing.

I did manage to eat a healthy dinner that night and the next. MB and I went out to dinner at a Vietnamese restaurant Saturday night. I ate half my meal and bought the rest home. Sunday, we went to a friend's house to watch zombie movies and we ate pizza and just a little bit of candy for dinner.

I resisted the peanut butter cups in favor of twizzlers and 2 jawbreakers. Impressive, right?

MB and I also did our run for the day and we kicked butt! I definitely earned my 2 jawbreakers!

We also went out to eat last night with some friends who came into town. It was at our favorite local brewery and MB had the most delicious porter. It tasted like a beer milkshake. Seriously. Yummy.

So, my week was definitely unplanned and I definitely ate all of my points by going out for the past three nights. But, I was wise in my food choices and was very active each day and I ended the week with a loss.

I also wore my jean jacket on Friday, which I have not been able to wear comfortably in 4 years. I also wore a pair of jeans and a sweater that I could not wear last year.

I'm pretty happy with my week!

For this coming week, it's the usual: post my daily eats; plan my meals; stay active.

So, how was your week?
