Boo! I gained 1.3 pounds this week. It really didn't come as much of a surprise to me. I feel like I didn't have a great weekend with eating. Not terrible but not as good as I needed it to be. For some reason then I just wrote the whole week off which was stupid. I am back to tracking every bite today and making sure I can make up for last week this week.
I worked out 4 times this week. All 4 workouts were runs to prepare for the 5k I'm running in November. This week I really was able to ramp my runs up. My last run on Monday I ran for 36 minutes with just 1 1/2 minutes of walking in the middle. It really helped that I went running with my friend Mrs. Acorn and her dog Barkley. Amanda's pace is a little faster than mine so she was ahead of me for the most part, but not so far enough that I couldn't see her. If we went around corners and I got out of Barkley's site he would turn around and look for me. I should run with Barkley more often! We ran 3 miles in the 36 minutes which puts me at a 12 minute mile. If I can run the 5k doing a 12 minute mile I will be happy. Nothing wrong with slow and steady!
This morning I also have started a new breakfast. I like to eat breakfast at my desk in the morning. It gives me more time at home in the morning and I find eating later helps hold me over to lunch. My new breakfast is instant oatmeal and then I add unsweetened applesauce to it. I also will have a banana with it. I wasn't sure how the oatmeal was going to taste but with the added applesauce it was actually really good. I need to bring some cinnamon in to work. I think with an added sprinkle of cinnamon it would be even better.
