Back Tracking

I had an amazing week... in my personal life.  My step-son was visiting last week (as you know) and his girlfriend flew in last Monday night so we did a bit of eating out but it was just so nice to have him around and meet his girl friends.  She's super sweet!

Food wise, I did ok.  I did a lot of back-tracking... meaning I ate and then I tracked later.  Sometimes a whole day later.  My food was not on point, but I tracked as I said I would.  I also went for a run-walk on Saturday.  I got a lot of steps in on Saturday - 15,000 steps.  In general, I moved more last week.

Unfortunately, I re-injured myself with my attempted run.  So now I'm using a foam roller to try and work out my hip / hip flexor problem.  It's extremely painful... as is the foam rolling.  You're probably cringing if you've ever done it.  I hear if you do it often, it's not so bad.  But starting out, it hurts like a BITCH.

It is helping though.

However, with that - I am bowing out of the dirty girl run this weekend.  I'm still going and cheering on my group and the others there, but I'm not participating.  I'm in too much pain (or was) to re-injur myself or make it worse yet.  So I'm bringing my camera and will take lots of pictures.

My husband is going out of town this weekend... which is never good for me.  BUT - I'm going to make my one (HUGE) small change this weekend and NOT get out of control when he's gone.  I'm going to look up healthy/fun recipes to make that he would NEVER eat.  He doesn't like the fancier foods like me - so when he's gone I need to take advantage of maybe some of the funkier-fancier healthy foods that I can't make when he's here.

I'm also going to start a clean eating challenge on Monday.  I'm very excited for it.  But have to get prepared for it this weekend because it's very different (not totally I guess) than how I eat now.  I'm hoping this breaks my sugar issue.  I've also warned my husband.  So by the end of it - we will see whether he loves me or hates me :) LOL

Have a great week, I can't wait until I'm Healthfully Ever After!
