I can't wait to cruise everyone's blog this weekend to find some inspiration. While I had a bit of a loss, this hasn't been a great week for me. I found myself spending more time on my butt than I would've liked and - at the core of it - I just know I could have done better.
The week started off pretty well. My friend and I upped our running spurts to 4 minutes with walk breaks in-between. Our first run went really well and I felt like a rock-star because we even did more intervals that we needed to. The next day, a poor choice in socks left me with a horrible blister afterwards. Ouch. Anyway, things went downhill from there. I haven't run in 3 days. I'm not counting my 7-minute stint on the treadmill last night. :P
It was the same story for food. I demonstrated a fantastic effort for the first half of the week. Then, as things got busy with work, I stopped meal planning and went into scavenger mode. Things got ugly. It culminated in a feast of linguine with pan-seared scallops in a homemade garlic, butter & cream sauce last night. That's what happens when there are no tomatoes or pasta sauce in the house! Oh man....at least Hubs was happy: "YES! We get to have something GOOD for once. Can I make garlic bread!?". ha ha ha
I have to get my mojo back to take me through the weekend. It is going to be full of temptation. Some good friends are hosting a BBQ tomorrow (I'm on salad duty!) and then my mom, sister and niece are coming for a Girls Weekend. I'm going to plan to make meals at home while getting in some activities that will keep us moving (maybe a trip to the zoo with a picnic?).
There are only about 2 weeks left in Clyde's iTouch challenge and I'm 10-pounds from my goal. I'm going to have to be relentless from here on out!!!
Does anyone have any good blister remedies apart from a blister bandaid?
