The majority of my daily focus goes towards raising children, work and my running. My supportive hubby often gets the shaft, my leftover time. Not last week... My hubby turned the big 40 on Friday and I threw a big ole party. I spent most of my time Wed/Thurs/Fri running errands and prepping for the party. Confession - I missed a workout or two... or three.
I made over 100 cupcakes for the party (and didn't eat a one!)
I made his favorite blueberry muffins (Again, not one went in my mouth!)
However, I did have a couple pieces of pizza at the party... and a zillion Miller Lite beers. Yeah, I let loose, but it was totally worth it. My hubby was on cloud nine and we had a blast with friends and family - many who we haven't seen in ages.
Sunday rolled around and I had to get back to business... 15 miles on the schedule. The temps were average (33 degrees) but it was gloomy, misty and windy. Thankfully, I was meeting a running partner so there was no bailing. After a couple days off running, my legs felt like lead and my pace was so sluggish. But 15 miles went down in the books... that had to burn off a couple beers, right?

This morning, I haphazardly rolled out of bed. Draggin' big time... but I got the kids off to school and woke myself up at the gym. After a 4 mile run and a 40 minute swim, I was exhausted. I feared the worst for my week two weigh-in. Skipped workouts plus drunken indulgences can't be good for weight loss!
Official weigh-in: -1.5 lbs for the week
Heck-Yeah! I'll take that!
It puts me -10 lbs in the past two weeks.
My goal for next week is -4 lbs. To get it done, here's my blueprint for the week...
