healthyish, vol. 11

This was the first week where I was considering not writing one of these. I've been down in Alabama visiting my mom, and we've been having a great time. We went on lots of walks, ate lots of homemade food, and had a really good week. But I didn't have as many traditional work outs as I typically have been doing, and I had a lot more sugar that I usually do too. But then I reminded myself that a week of not sticking to my typical plan doesn't mean I didn't do things to work towards my goals this week, so here we are!


  • Sunday: 1 hour spin class
  • Tuesday: 5.2 mile walk
  • Wednesday: 5.3 mile walk
  • Thursday: 4.1 mile walk
  • Friday: 4.0 mile walk

This week was full of my mom's delicious food. My mom eats a lot more fruit and grains than I typically do, so it was nice to indulge a bit more! We had great breakfasts of eggs, fruit, and toast, lunches of salads, thin crush pizzas, and veggies, and dinners of brats and sauerkraut, chicken and rice, and sushi. I made a few meals of butternut squash noodles and chicken meatballs before I left as well (I love butternut squash noodles!)...I really need to figure out how to cook a butternut squash instead of paying for the pre-spiralized versions at the grocery store. 


Last week's goals:
  • Walk 5 miles a day for 4 days : basically done! One day we went a little shorter because the sun was beating down, but it averaged out to around 4.5 miles every day!
  • Choose healthier alternatives while traveling: done! No fast food burgers for me :)
  • Do 20 push ups a day: Oops. This did not happen. To be honest, I completely forgot I even made this a goal. 

Next week's goals: 
  • Take 2 group weight classes at my gym (I already signed up! I just have to go)
  • Cut back on sugar this week - no sneaking a few chocolates throughout the day
  • Don't emotional eat this week. It could be the most stressful of my life, or the best...we'll see


Depending on what we find out about the match on Monday, we are either celebrating or emotional eating. Fingers crossed it's a big celebration full of pastas and tiramisu and wine. 

weigh in: 

No idea! I think I'm going to take a few weeks off from weighing myself just because I don't want to live and die by what the scale says. We'll see how I'm feeling...
