*5 mile run with the gals +8
post run/breakfast – green protein smoothie – used a scoop and a half of protein – 3
** A COOL trick I learned on Pinterest – that you can use a mason jar as your blender cup!!! dump everything in the jar you wanna blend – screw on the blender blade and bottom, blend and then wahhlahhh – drink straight out of the jar!! I guess we could call this the Redneck Magic Bullet!!! bahahaha! 😉
Since my hubby is leaving town SUPER early Tuesday he took the lil man out for donuts for breakfast for Valentines 😉

*do NOT try this at home!!!! (confessional) I was getting ready to eat a pear and then just decided I wanted Fro Yo instead – ended up with just the spoon in the 1/2 gallon container by the night light in the kitchen. Ate several bites until I felt ‘satisfied’ and then put it away. oh well. guess the loneliness / stress took over me. :/ I need to stay out of the kitchen at night.
Tomorrow is weigh in day and our WW meeting – really trying to get back into the habit of weighing in weekly.
I’m also trying to get back into the habit of logging in my daily points used and activity points earned in my Weight Watchers app. When I did it this way before it was a great tool for me to ‘see’ the numbers add up and subtract away from my totals each day and see how it effected my weight loss. Its gonna take me a couple weeks to get used to doing this again. I realize from logging it in this way this week that I didn’t get to earn as many activity points this week due to missing several days of working out – and that I need to try harder to stick to the new 26 daily points. Having a hard time wrapping my brain around 3 points+ LESS a day…..shouldn’t be that hard…..but for some reason it is.
