... and I'll run if I want to.
No seriously. Today is my birthday, and I told my mom I didn't really want anything, other than to be able to run AND take a shower and get ready. Well, then I requested guacamole, margaritas and a dairy free chocolate cake, but seriously, nothing too crazy right?
I just got Elsie back to sleep, so now I'm trying to pump, type a blog post and go for a run all before she wakes back up. We will see if that happens. Good news is she did me a solid and slept from 9:15pm - 5:15am. Not a bad birthday present at all.
This week was lacking in the number of workouts, I only managed three. A two mile run on Monday, and tabata/strength workouts on Tuesday and Sunday. I wish I would have gotten at least one more run, but I will say those tabata workouts left me feeling sore! I loosely followed this one and this one I found on pinterest. I followed them up with a few more strength moves. It felt good to be sore for a change an I liked how quickly I could do the workouts.
I'm proud to say I have gone two full weeks without any sweets or chocolate. I am quite impressed with myself. I can't say I haven't been tempted, or that I don't want them, but I've done it. I haven't be 100% about not eating processed foods, but I've done pretty good with that as well. But you better believe I am cheating today. What more would a birthday be for right? Oh I did manage to meet my other goal this week by trying a new vegetable. For dinner Friday night one of our side dishes was mashed calliflower and turnips. It tasted pretty good, but the texture was a little too creamy.
Well, that is all I'm leaving time for today. Fill me in on how your health and fitness adventures have been going! Link up below :o).
