I know my Easter weekend was wonderful and now back to the Monday through Friday grind. I did so much better on my food this weekend than I would have ever expected. I saw the horrid picture from Thursday that just highlighted the weight gain I have experienced over the last month and the calorie counting started back instantly.
I was afraid over the holiday I would just binge on candy and cakes, but I was able to eat some candy and have A cupcake instead of the entire bowl of candy and 4 cupcakes. I'm taking little victories right now. But my food today has been on track. I packed everything this morning and have stuck to it. The only addition was a Marathon bar that I got at my No Bo meeting tonight. I ate one of these a few months ago and it was awful so I just thought I would try this one tonight and it was delicious!!!! Its Marathon Energy Snickers Crunchy Honey & Toasted Almond. 150 calories of deliciousness!
Our No Bo meeting was so great tonight. I ran with a small group of about 4 women tonight and they all worked so hard. We upped the mileage and the time running tonight and I thought they might pitter out towards the end. Now some of them said a few naughty words but they did it all the way to the end. I was incredibly proud. I am loving this program more and more each week because I like to watch other achieve something that they never thought was possible.
I am feeling much better today. Its amazing how a little bit of control can change the way you feel and your attitude. I have been on that steroid for a week now and it has made me feel like crap. I took my last pill this morning so I know it is not out of my system yet but just knowing that it is on its way out makes me feel better. I have not been able to sleep on it, my calves have cramped and basically anyone that can talk has gotten on my nerves while on it. I am happy that it is done....I wish it had fixed my hip but we cant get everything we want can we now!
I have one more workout tonight and I usually go easy on my workout buddy on Monday nights because we run our No Bo group but she wasn't able to make it tonight so I think we will have a go at it after she makes up her run...hahah no mercy! I'm ready to go again, my hair is messed up and I'm already sweaty so might as well keep working hard.
