I just posted the results from the Runs for Cookies Virtual 5K, so if you want to check them out, you can see that post here. Congrats to everyone who finished! And a huge thanks for celebrating my birthday with me by completing a 5K :)
I had another good weigh-in today...
I was at 128 even again--this makes three weeks in a row!
This week, my average daily calorie intake was 1,983. Usually, I just have one high-calorie day, but this week I ended up with three days that were over 2,000 calories. I didn't plan it that way, but maybe the extra running I've been doing has increased my appetite a little. Regardless, I didn't gain, so I'm happy with it! Especially considering it was my birthday week, and I had a delicious Mexican dinner--complete with two very strong margaritas--on Monday with Jerry. ;)
As for my long-term goals:
7,000+ steps six days a week: I actually hit 7,000+ steps all seven days this week! In fact, I actually hit over 10,000 steps every day except for last Wednesday.
Stay binge-free: Success! Today marks Day 176. This was a challenging week for me. Like I said, I went over 2,000 calories three days this week, and those days could have easily turned into binges. But I kept control, and I logged everything I ate. I really don't want to break the streak I have going!
Try one new recipe each week: This week, I did a super simple crock pot recipe for French Onion Meatballs. I know that the "cream of" soups have a bad rap, but I happen to like them. This recipe only had four ingredients--cream of mushroom, cream of onion, French onion soup mix, and frozen meatballs. The whole family liked them, and Jerry said it would be the perfect thing to bring to work when they do potlucks.
So, I'm happy to say that I hit all three of my goals this week:
My 10K training also went well. I completed all of my runs, and I didn't have any more issues with the muscle spasm in my abdomen. I started doing the 80/20 running on Saturday, so I've been getting in a lot of slow, easy miles, but I've really enjoyed it.
Overall, it's been a great week in maintenance!
