New-ish Month, New Challenges

5 Jun

So we’re now into June and summer seems to really be coming in with no hesitation!!

That means, running needs to be done pretty darn early! And, of course this is when I really need to kick my training into gear — time is ticking away and I know that the Marine Corps Marathon will be here before I know it! Followed way too closely by my #Dopey15 runDisney challenge…and even more.

I do have a couple of race recaps and vacations to recap this weekend so I can be caught up too!

But, first, ya’ll know I was doing a couple of DietBets last month and I managed to squeak by and win them both (with a pound or two to spare). I turned around and put the winnings from my first win (don’t know what I won from the second yet!) into 2 more for this month!

And I have to tell you people….it was a little more stressful than I thought it would be but those last couple of days were definitely motivation to keep it going more consistently this time around.

In case you’re interested, you can sign up here for the “small” DB  http://diet.bt/1p6dG8q

And here for the BIG game! http://diet.bt/1p6elHd

Seriously, if you’re signing up for one, you may as well sign up for two. I mean, you only increase your chance of winning right? And definitely let Patty know that I sent you!! 😉

And I’m also repeating my wall sit/plank/arm challenge from May since I fell off of that wagon around the 23rd…and I can say that I’m good for 5 days!!

And, important culture note: Tomorrow is National Donut Day — so head out and get some round goodness in your belly! A group of my friends have organized a virtual “Donut Run” — so I’ll head to my local Dunkin Donuts in the morning (before the dentist of course!) on foot, and grab some nom and run back home!

Let’s Eat All The Things!!!

11 Jun

Or, how my second week of Whole30 is going…

Finally back from vacation, Finally ready to buckle down and kick this thing into gear! So, I’ve got my fruits, I’ve got my veggies, I’ve got protein out the as…well, you see where I’m going with this. I’ve thrown out the milk even and bought coconut milk for my coffee!

This should be a piece of cake. Mmmmm….cake…

First day back things went pretty well…I slipped and put half and half in my first cup of coffee…but other than that, I was about 85% on track. I might have eaten some cheese.

Friday was tough cause it was National Donut Day. And, if you need to know anything about me, you need to know that I have a serious…SERIOUS, sweet tooth (yeah, it doesn’t make being diabetic very easy!) and I have a definite affinity for the little round fried goodies. And, as I may or may not have mentioned, the lobby of my office building contains a Dunkin Donuts! But, as luck would have it, I woke up feeling kind of punky on Friday and not even a donut could tempt me to eat. So…I was pretty much on track only cause I was drinking water and eating an apple all morning!

Friday night I might have had some cheese and wine…

Saturday and Sunday were easy days to stay on track since I have no temptations in the house!

Back at work – packing a lunch was the best plan since we have no vending machines in the office ( that I know of…)

But today? Today I want to EAT EVERTHING IN SIGHT! With a definite preference for things that might be termed “crap”…luckily, none available!

  Candy-Bars

So, even on days that I’ve slipped up, overall I’m definitely making some better choices and thinking twice before putting something in my mouth!

It can only get easier, right?!!
