Weight Watchers // 

Last week I lost a pound, this week? Well this week I gained it back. Eh, oh well. I’ve still be slacking on my points tracking, and I know that’s the issue.

Regardless, I saw a weight loss! And hooray for that! And I realize that if I would just get back on track with my Points Plus Tracker, I’d lose even more, even faster.

Workouts // 

I love running! LOVE it! And I’ve logged a lot of miles over the past 10 days. Well, a lot for me. And I’ve loved every minute of it. I feel great during the runs, but extremely sore afterward. I haven’t been able to make it to a yoga class in a few weeks, which I know will ultimately help keep me limber and less-sore post-run. But easier said than done these days!

It’s super discouraging to have the sun go down right as I’m finishing up with work. And I pretty much refuse to run in the dark. I have bad vision and I can foresee myself tripping & falling. So I run during the day. Which, during the week, is limited to running during my lunch break. My coworkers may not be thrilled to spend a couple of hours near me post-workout, but I clean up well! 😉

The Real World //

No, not the MTV show. I mean, living in the real world. With fast-paced lives and the need for convenience. Ya know what I wish was convenient? Juicing. I love when we make fresh juice at home (thanks to our wonderful Omega Juicer!). But the prep work is a pain! Which is why I have the best of intentions, but procrastinate. We haven’t juiced any of the fruits and veggies we have in a couple weeks. It feels like a waste.

Our saving grace lately has been two things: 1. I have a husband who gets home earlier than I do; and he likes to cook healthy meals. 2. We made a trip to Trader Joes last weekend and stocked up on healthy, organic, No-GMO freezer meals! Our big freezer died a couple of months ago. At the time, we had a freezer full of goodies (and milk — ugh!) that all spoiled. Truth be told, it should’ve been cleaned out long ago, but since we were forced into it, our freezer has been nearly empty since. It’s nice to see it full of delicious and healthy food!

Looking Ahead // 

This weekend I’m hoping to get a long run in AND a yoga class. This feels like a huge goal. But one that I can tackle. My parents will be in town so I’m hoping that allows me to sneak away for an hour to run on Saturday. 🙂 I don’t have a race to run for at least a couple of weeks, but it’s a race I’m nervous about! I know I can do it. It’s not that part that I’m nervous about. It’s just the normal pre-race jitters — already!

Almost forgot //

Stay on the lookout for a giveaway or two here in the very near future! 🙂

Happy Friday, y’all! Have an awesome weekend!
