I switched my weigh-in day to Saturday because I do my long runs on Sundays. Aside from wanting to eat all the things after I do a long run, I also tend to retain some water or whatever it is, and weigh slightly higher than my norm. I didn't want to deal with that with a weigh in this morning. Saturday it is!
And...drum roll please.... (I just picture the guy from Pitch Perfect doing the drum roll on his belly when I say that)
I LOST TWO POUNDS!
Well, hell's bells, this shit actually works!
And now I will bombard you with poor quality food photography and pictures of cute toddlers. That is what my weekend was all about.
Hubs got up with the boys on Saturday morning so I slept in until almost 8:30. I think 25 year old Meg just laughed at me calling that sleeping in. By the time I got up the boys were fed and eager to play outside so I made myself breakfast and joined them in the backyard.

I like to get a good amount of protein in each of my meals, it makes me feel fuller longer. I threw together a quick vegetable soup for lunch and added a whole wheat tortilla with refried black beans for protein. Yum! Normally I would've just had ramen noodles or a grilled cheese or something along those lines. Taking the time to make something good was a great change of mindset for me. Plus, I had enough soup left to have it yesterday and finish it off with today's lunch.
We were supposed to have friends over for a cookout Saturday afternoon but they bailed on us. Instead, we took the Guys to the pool and had pretty much the best time possible.
I know, it feels like this whole post is dedicated to what I ate, and I'm sorry for that. I just want to capture how I was feeling, hunger wise, etc, so I can really analyze how I felt this week. This is my first time following any sort of meal plan thing so I have verbal diarrhea when I talk about it. Sorry.
Sunday was Hubs' morning to sleep in. I got up with the guys, got them changed and breakfasted, and headed out the door for a run before it became hotter than hell. We had a good time. I had to run a bit slower than normal, the heat got to me and I was pushing the Guys. I ended up with four miles in just a shade under an hour, which is about all the Guys will give me in the stroller. This week was supposed to be speed work, but I simply can't do speed work in this heat so I went with just getting some mileage in.

We ate early because we all ate together as a family so by the time 8:00PM rolled around I was feeling snacky. I sliced up a banana with some Peanut Butter Panda Puffs and voila evening snack for

To keep that stress at a minimum, my goal is three runs and five days of walking this week. Nothing like racking up some Activity Points to make the days better!
How was your weekend?
