So let's start off with the scale picture:
Please disregard the chipped nail polish.
So, I can't say for sure what's up with this weight. I figured I gained weight over the past few weeks...but some of the weight being registered may or may not have to do with the fact that I had to buy a new scale because my old one was destroyed when my apartment flooded.
This new scale is actually pretty crappy and I may or may not return it and get another. I haven't decided yet.
I actually ran this week. TWICE! I really am not a fan of cardio unless it involves dancing around like a crazy person (see my post on this here) because I can't seem to get my breathing under control. I have to stop and catch my breath WAY before my muscles tire. Is this normal?
Regardless, I powered through two runs that were approximately a mile. The distance isn't fabulous, but it's a push for me and that's all that matters.
This past week was better with what I ate, but still not spectacular. I didn't gorge on fast food or anything, but my choices could have been better. This will be my focus this week.
This morning, I tried mixing some greek yogurt, cottage cheese, peaches, and pumpkin pie spice for breakfast. It tasted great, but I could NOT get over the texture of the cottage cheese (I don't think I had ever tried cottage cheese before today). I tried eating it slowly, fastly, in big bites, etc. I just couldn't get past it. I think I'll have nightmares about those chewy, lumpy curds in my teeth. Someone suggested I use an immersion blender to blend it into a smoother texture, so I may try that once I get over my PTSD from the incident this morning. More than likely I'll just skip the cottage cheese and use greek yogurt only.
Subway is this week's blogging carnival sponsor for Mamavation. They're giving away an iPod which would be FABULOUS since mine just bit the dust.
As of right now, the finalists for the Mamavation campaign haven't been announced. Good luck to everyone else who applied! If you haven't yet, please take a few minutes to view my application video here.
