When I got home and logged all my food, I saw that I had actually gone OVER my allotted PointsPlus for the week--I've never seen a negative number on there before, but it read -6 Weekly PointsPlus. To get it out of the negative, I just have to earn 6 activity PointsPlus before Wednesday.
This morning, I started that off by going for a run. I was planning to run 5 miles in order to earn 6 PP. It was FREEZING outside, and the roads were covered in snow, but I decided to run outside anyway. I dressed in some warm pants, an Under Armour Cold Gear long-sleeved shirt with a fleece jacket over it, gloves, a balaclava, and my shoes with IceSpikes on them so I didn't fall on the packed snow.
I also learned that it's nearly impossible to get any oxygen with a balaclava covering my mouth. Shortly after I started running, I had to pull it down to my chin, which was kind of uncomfortable.
I thought my pace would be super slow, since I was running on snow, but it wasn't bad!
|The tags were still on this balaclava this morning--this was|
the first time I wore it, and I bought it two years ago!
Because I don't have any weekly PointsPlus to fall back on for the next few days, I have to be extra careful about what I eat. I decided to make it a mission to get in all of my Good Health Guidelines:
For breakfast, I made a protein shake with a cup of milk and a cup of berries; then for lunch, I got in some veggie servings by having spaghetti squash. I topped it with spaghetti sauce mixed with ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, and mushrooms sauteed in olive oil. Those two meals alone got in almost all of the healthy guidelines today!
This evening, my little brother Nathan came over to watch the first half of the Super Bowl with Jerry. I was excited for him to come over, since I don't see him too often. It was a great day!
