How was my week?

Well, my week went well. Better than I expected. I planned for 5 days of exercise and I got all 5 days in and then some! For my new goal of 33 points a day...I had several days above that. However, with the amount of exercise I was getting, I had to eat those points and I do not feel guilty about it. :)


Speaking of exercise, Saturday we went for our first bike ride as a family since... forever? I know it was my first ride in ages. We stuck to our usual route and that was a challenge in itself. We only got 5.5 miles in, but my legs were Jell-O and the hubs had already spent 2 hours in Krav class. It was nice. Now I'm amped up to go to our favorite trail at the lake! 18.16 miles here I come...

As for today...I RAN. Not jogged, not slogged, I RAN! Now I'm feeling it. But I was trying to see if I could run for 3 miles and just how fast I could go. Did I do it? Hell yeah. I got queezy after 2 miles and felt like puking at the end. It was awesome. My previous best average pace is 15:30. Today? 14:39. Can you believe? I sure can't. After pushing myself the 3 miles I reset my watch and walk for another 20 minutes to give myself a cool down mile. I must say I'm rather proud of myself. :)

In foodie news, as you saw above I'm doing well managing my points and I must say this week "felt" much better given the choices I made over what I've been doing in the past. I have a really good feeling about the scale in the morning. These iPhone pics are from earlier this week.

I enjoyed a humongous spinach & romaine salad with green onion & cherry tomatoes, a bit of fat free cheese and light raspberry vinaigrette. I accompanied it with left over spinach & cheese stuffed chicken breast. It was very nummy.


Two nummy new recipes here...the first pic is the before of the Broccoli & Orzo. The second pic is the completed Broccoli & Orzo with Crock Pot Lemon Chicken. Both are fabulous!

And just for giggles, here's one of my fav pics of late, by me. See ya'll tomorrow!

Congratulations on doing so much exercise! I'd love to go for a ride but sadly there is no one to ride with me. Also you've lost weight 6 weeks in a row so far, that's pretty good.
