Wednesday WI time!

Another great Wednesday WI here – down 1.1, which is fabulous since I was away upstate this weekend.  I know I’m saying it a lot, but wow – I’m in control – I haven’t felt this way in a long time – if ever?!

The trick for me this weekend was to plan an activity every day and track everything!  I made sure a run was the first thing I did Friday before leaving to go upstate – even before breakfast, showering (duh, obviously) and packing.  From there I made smart decisions, even at the Chinese buffet dinner with my amazing Nephew for his birthday – 16!!!!

Saturday, more of the same.  Planned a big bike ride with the little man being Daddy had to head back home for work.  I was actually hoping to get another bike ride in after his nap, but Natie slept until 4:30!

Sunday – rocked out a Rip Run on the bridge!  It worked out perfect.  My c25k was set for the 20 minute run.  I wanted to do it on a flat surface & near my home up there it’s a bit hilly.  Add to the fact I was being faced with 3 of my fears – heights, water & spiders I didn’t even notice I was running for 20 minutes straight!  Open-mouthed smile

We headed back home for a nice big breakfast & then set out for another family bike ride!  Have I said how much I LOVE the bike trailer?

We rounded out the day with a great pre-dinner snack of wine, cheese, crackers & great company & then headed out to dinner to celebrate a family friend’s birthday.

All in all it was a great week & I’m very happy the scale is reflecting the wonderful time I had!
