Stepped on the scale today to see I lost 0.4! Honestly, at first I was a bit bummed, but then I stepped back & really thought about my weekend. I had two BBQ’s/parties this past weekend. I managed to stay in control at BOTH parties too AND tracked my foods. I also got in a workout both days burning approx. 400+ cals on both of those days. AND….I made cupcakes…not just any cupcakes, but these cupcakes:
Devils food cupcake filled with raspberry jam, raspberry buttercream topped with raspberry ganache filled raspberries!
Or how about these bad boys… Brown sugar cupcake, filled with cookie dough, cookie dough icing topped with mini chocolate chips & a mini chocolate chip cookie.
At both parties I found someone to split each one with me so I could enjoy both without eating two cupcakes. Thankfully my partner in crime, Kim obliged at the one party & my partner for life, Rich obliged at the other!
So my workouts I mentioned was starting back on the c25k. Back to the beginning (again!). And again, thanks to Kim, she e-mailed me with the subject “Crazy Idea”….I was afraid to open it…., but inside she sent me a link to a 5k in October for us to sign up & run. By signing up for this race it would push us to get back into the c25k program & basically force us into making time to run. It’s just easier to train for something than to just get out & run – maybe not always, but at least here in the beginning it is. So the next day we brought in our workout clothes & ran during lunch. The results…
…Sweaty messes! HA – but we felt AWESOME afterwards. We were both riding the high after that workout!
I always think of Biz when I workout during lunch because that is her prime time to get in a workout during the day…and then I wonder if she sweats like a pig like I do?
