Gah Monday. This one is ugly. Mais la I am so tired. True Confessions time, this past weekend was one of my worst food weekends in recent memory. In terms of fun weekends it was way up tipin the top of the let the good times roll scale. We are full swing Carnival season here in the south and I am loving every second of it!
|I have no idea what was so funny|
I did not work out. Not once. Well unless you count dancing along the parade route. I did burn some calories there.
We went out to eat Friday night, Saturday for lunch and Saturday night. I made so so choices and I drank my weight in champagne. I also ate King Cake. Like a lot of king cake. It was chocolate filled too. Like I don't even want to tell you how much King Cake but my husband said if I didn't confess he would loud cap me in the comments of this post. I regret nothing.
Gah, the bad news keeps coming right?! My waist line and liver just can't survive another week of Mardi Gras. You can and you will!
I'm sure the coming weekend, Lundi, plus Mardi Gras will be vicious in the weight loss department, BUT I am going to rock this week.
In run related news. I haven't run more than 4 miles at a time since my injury at the Louisiana Marathon late January. I am currently registered for the Zydeco Marathon on March 30th. I really want to run the Marathon this day, however, I want to be able to run through out my life even more. I've decided to focus on getting to the half marathon finish line without any pain. I am absolutely positive that at some point in my life I will be a marathoner, it's just not going to happen for me this year. I've been struggling with this decision, and it's honestly left me avoiding my blog and online life. Since I began writing this blog, it's been such a positive outlet for me, and I have always felt that if I put something up on the blog, I would make it happen. It's been very difficult for me to admit to myself and to admit publicly that I can not run the marathon in March. I kept hoping for a knee miracle but it's just not meant to be. Le sigh. Unfortunately, my real life knee just ain't keeping up, and it's time for me to move forward.
Time to move on: I plan to pick up with Hal Higdon's Novice 2 half marathon training program this week. This past week I ran the treadmill every single day with no pain, so I'm hopeful I can complete the half. Here's the plan:
Tuesday: 3 Mile Run & Strength
Wednesday: 5 Mile Run & Strength
Thursday: 3 Mile Run & Strength
Friday: Body Pump
Saturday: 10 Mile Run
Things to look forward to this week on the blog: In Bloom Boutique Review, give away, and discount code for all! Hey Hey Mardi Gras!!!
Now back to my real life as a fully functioning boring adult ;)
