I am beyond pleased that I am consistently running about 10:00mm paces on the road. I havent run that pace since this time last year. So I feel like I am back at my baseline after a very difficult year. I am very excited and nervous to see what happens over the next couple of months when the weather starts to warm up and things start blooming. I am cautiously optimistic though.
Also, I completed my second round of Dietbet and won again. This time I ended up winning just over $30! You cant beat getting paid to lose weight! Here is a comparison picture from last November to now (about 3months)...
Im really hoping that in another three months I will be down another 15lbs. I would be totally stoked!!
EATS: Last week and so far this week I/we have been mostly trying to use up foods that we already have with minimal grocery shopping. So here are some of the dinners we were able to throw together...
|Trader Joes Veggie Stir-Fry|
|Asian Burger under Parm Noodles and Green Beans|
|Left over Chili and breaksticks|
|Another Veggie Stir-Fry over Quinoa and topped with an Orange Coconut sauce|
|And of course....Pizza!|
Do you ever go through periods where you try to use up things in the freezer and pantry instead of buying MORE food?!
