Always doing something

For not having plans this weekend, I still stayed pretty busy. That’s good though, otherwise I get quite crabby! Some marvelous  things did happen though, so let’s share!

MiMM

Marvelous: On Friday I went to a friend’s birthday party. Healthy people, avert eyes. I ate so.much.pizza. I lost count around 6… I do think my body needed it though. Sometimes it needs a break from health and could use some grease to get movin’! I really enjoyed it and that’s okay once in awhile!

Marvelous: Went for our usual Saturday run with cousin Laura. Always a nice easy pace to get ready for Sunday long runs, and some good talks.

Marvelous: I hit double digits!!! It is so crazy to think about just a few months ago when the only exercise I got was going to the fridge. I ran 10 miles. Technically 10.8 with warmup + cooldown! I just can’t believe I’m here.

Marvelous: The Cellcom Half Marathon is in less than 4 weeks! Wow. That is going to come so quick! I’m so pumped.

Marvelous: Dinner on Saturday. Such an easy meal but it was so delicious. Ciabatta with turkey, swiss, spinach, and tomatoes with roasted asparagus. Those of you on Instagram know what I’m talking about!

Marvelous: Brunch on Sunday. I needed some recovery foods after the 10 miler and this was perfect. Baked Oatmeal Casserole  except this time we added a mashed banana to the oats. Shut the front door it was amazing. Plus a green smoothie.

Marvelous: Family dinners. Grandma doesn’t have them too often anymore but I love when she does. I think this was the first time I actually ate what she made, no fuss. Big steps! Chicken and biscuits. It was good! Plus her oatmeal bars. Grandma’s recipes are always the best.

Marvelous: I am planning a Run for Boston. I had the idea last week, and I’m making it happen. All the proceeds will go to the One Fund Charity. It’s a lot of work! But I think it’s going to go well. It’s on May 11 and I’m really excited. I probably won’t be on the blog world too much- I’m crazy busy!

I definitely feel like I gained a little weight this weekend. I’ll get back on track this week.

So that’s a little recap of my weekend. What was the best thing about yours?

  1. This weekend sounds perfect! Do NOT worry about “getting back on track”. That sparks red flags for me. There’s nothing wrong with enjoying yourself once in awhile. You even said yourself, your body probably needed the food. Plus, you need extra carbs and food in general for a 10 mile run :)

    • Thank you. I think I’m starting to enjoy food again, not restricted. I’m not obsessed about being a stick anymore. Muscle looks good! I eat fairly healthy during the week and on weekends I really eat whatever I want. Of course, I’ll never turn down a cookie if it’s there :)

  2. Hahahaha I had soooooo much pizza on Sunday! I was secretly hoping that it would actually help on my 2k test yesterday (I beat my PR on a 6k after having horribly greasy food while in New Orleans). And surprisingly.. it worked. Whoops :)

    • Hahaha! The same thing actually happened to me. I ate pizza an hour before a xc meet and I had a PR! Crazy how things work. But then should we do it always? I don’t know!
