Catching up on the last couple of days:
Thursday: 26 pts
*20 minutes on the elliptical*
Met up with Susan over at the community garden. This is an organic garden and all of the veggies are donated to the local food banks. It was so cold and windy! Took me a while to defrost after… I’m looking forward to getting the opportunity to work in the garden more and learn some new things!
Attended my weekly Weight Watchers meeting. Zone Bar – 5
Subway Turkey Sandwich & Snapz – 8
Went to my husband’s office to get a treatment – Ran by Whole Foods for a cookie on my way back – 5

Attended an awesome parenting class that night by one of my running buddies, Debbi.

Zone Bar – 5 pts
Protein Waffle W/ Strawberries – 5 pts

Roasted Potatoes, Chicken Sausage, and Red Peppers <– Click Link For Recipe – 8 pts
Frozen Yogurt – 6 pts Our running group got together to say good bye to our good friend Debbi- gonna miss her so much! She is a wonderful example and someone that I really admire.
Saturday: didn’t track points, but there was a lot!
Banana and 1 tsp Peanut Butter –
75 Burpees Timed Challenge – I didn’t have anyone to time me, so I set pencils on the chair next to my son’s iTouch timer… then, I would drop a pencil every 10 burpees…. it helped me keep track of them. My time 6:53
*Then ran 5 miles with the running group – It was definitely sad to run with Debbi for the last time…*
My husband and I went out for breakfast together at the Cracker Barrel. I was starving…..
Yogurt parfait, apple bran muffin, egg beaters and turkey sausage…
Then we ran a few errands together and these looked good!
I came home and had a big bowl of Blue Bell Vanilla and Fiber One brownie-
I ended up getting a bad headache- probably a combination of crying, running in the cold, eating too much sugar, etc. I was in bed most of the afternoon trying to sleep off the headache. I ate snacky foods like saltine crackers, stila oatmeal bar, veggie straw chips, etc.
I have been having a lot of shoulder/neck pains (probably because of all of the burpees)… my husband worked on me again and I went to bed early. I feel like all the resting that I did was probably necessary and my body was trying to tell me something. Luckily, we didn’t have a busy schedule this weekend and I was able to relax.
