But thankfully this weekend I have had the pleasure of being off, all weekend and it has been everything I had hoped it to be. I haven't had to do laundry, even though yes, I have at least two piles waiting or even really cleaned my apartment either. I leave those tasks for after work or a day of the week day off, because weekends off come very rare and I do not want to miss out on them.
Wednesday I did happen to go to Trader Joe's because I was downtown in the area and well, I mean how could I not. They have all there glorious Pumpkin items out. I could have picked up everything and anything but I stayed with just a few things..
The cookie butter was not there when I went, and I am thankfully for that because I would have bought it and probably ate the whole jar. I am shocked I have a jar of cookie butter in my closet still. It is a weakness for me and I am really working on self control, like a lot. Now if I could just use that same self control with Snack/Chex/Trail Mix, well...
Best Pizza in St. Pete, Gianni's Margherita Pizza. James and I couldn't get enough of it. We ate the whole pie together, thankfully I was running a 5k the next day. The pizza was so thin.
I ran the first mile without one walk break and felt great. Then at the water station I walked a bit, then a little over a mile and half, and then at the second water station and a little after the 2.50 mile mark too. That was it, just 4 walk breaks and felt great. I had some pain in my ankle and shin started a bit, but nothing horrible at all. And then you got a cookie at the end, I chose a Tagalong, really hoping for Samosas but none were there, ugh.
It was a fun race and my Boss and her family lived right on the course, it was awesome to see them cheering me along. And I hung out with them a bit after. We all decided to sign up for the Best Damn Race Half Marathon on February 6th also. I am so excited to start training for the race and I know it will help with my weight loss continuance and to have a plan in place again!
After the race I spent the day just relaxing and napping. Perfect day off. James and I even had a date night. We went and played Putt Putt.
I got a Hole In One on the 6th Hole and we had a blast. It started raining around the 13 whole, so we had to speed putt putt a bit, but we had a blast. We had BBQ for dinner after and then I literally passed out, I tried to keep my eyes open and could not at all. Meaning of a successful day!!
I also put up our Fall and Halloween Decorations. We don't have much, but it really has a cute, cozy feel to it now. I go all out for Christmas :0)
So that has been my last couple of day and I had a 1.7 pound lost, finally hit the 160's again and planning on staying there, sure the last couple of nights have not been great, but I have tracked and made better choices. Here is to a new and good week!!!
