As for activity, I actually set my alarm to get up Saturday morning to go for a run. Crazy, right? I usually let Hubs sleep in on Saturdays since he
Although toddler dangling is quite the workout, let me tell you.
I wanted to get some kind of run in so I set my alarm for 7:30AM. This didn't really give me enough time to get a ton of mileage in but I did get 2.5 miles so not bad.
Desiree. I can send vibes like that now because I am feeling gracious. Talk to me when I'm running through snow and ice and I may not feel as kindly towards our Southern friends.

|Sure, it took me three hours to walk three miles.|
Joke's on me! TOM is rapidly approaching and I am sure that's what it is, but balls to that. Balls to gaining weight for what seems like no reason. I am up 1.6 pounds from last week and I just know I am never, ever, ever going to be below two hundred pounds. NEVER.

I want to wallow in that, but I will not. Because I am not going to let the number on the scale define me!
I got a nice run workout in this morning. If you're in the Stay Away From Tricks and Treats Facebook group you can skip this paragraph because I told this story on there. I woke up this morning when my workout alarm went off (I have a workout alarm and then a work alarm) and headed out into the living room to get dressed for my run. I opened the front door to check the weather and saw the streets were wet. Boo rain! So I debated with myself. Run? Don't run? Run? Don't run? I finally just gave into the urge to run figuring I would just get wet, it wasn't really thundering or anything, plus it wasn't that cold out. As soon as I got outside I realized it wasn't even raining anymore. Man, I would have been pissed at myself for not running! I'm glad I did. I ran three miles which I think is an awesome way to start my week.
And since it's Monday it's time for...
MONDAY MINI GOALS!
Here are last week's goals:
Monday Mini Goals week of 10/6/14
2. Lose 1 pound. Ugh. If only this was GAIN 1 pound I would have destroyed it.
3. Eat more protein. I didn't exactly crush this, but I did become more aware of my protein. I think I had two days where my protein hit over 100 grams. That's my goal so two out of seven isn't too shabby. This week I bought a couple of Greek yogurts and some lowfat cottage cheese I think those will both help me this week.
And here are this week's goals:
Monday Mini Goals week of 10/13/14
1. Walk/run at least 16 miles. I think 20 might be pushing it, but 15 isn't enough especially since I already have six miles under my belt and it's only Monday.
2. Lose 1 pound.
3. Eat more protein.
