My biggest concern for this challenge is getting my 5 servings of fruits/veggies, which you can see I didn't get any of with this meal. My second biggest concern for this challenge is getting enough water on the weekends but I realized as long as I shoot for 2 soda glasses full while I'm working I'm more then half way there! I worked until about noon, we were pretty steady and I made enough to keep my finances in order for the week :-)
Angela & I were planning to knock out couch to 5K week 9 day 1 so I made sure to eat as soon as I got home. It was one piece of leftover eggplant rollatini from the restaurant (I'm guessing about 351 calories). The picture makes it look kind of gross but it was delicious!
Around 2:30 we headed out on our run. Neither of us were feeling up to it but we knew we had to get it done. We were both whining the whole way about how slow we were going & what I waste this was. When we finished we checked our stats to see how much slower we were since running on Thursday & it turns out we were kicking serious butt! I shaved almost a full minute from my mile pace. It really made me feel a lot better about the race this on Thanksgiving, I'm running with my sister who has about a 10min pace & I don't want to hold her back too much. We stopped at Starbucks on our walk home because it was buy 1 get 1 for holiday drinks! I forgot to take a picture of my tall skinny gingerbread latte but it was delicious and about 150 calories.
Joe & I couldn't decide what to do for dinner. We were back & forth between ordering out & cooking but since we were spending the day together Sunday (and would probably be eating out a lot) we decided to be good and stay home. I made baked pork chops with shake n' bake, steamed asparagus & stove-top = 482 calories.I also had a leftover apple turnover with ice cream that Joe made earlier in the week. I forgot to take a picture but it was delicious, maybe even better then when they were fresh!
I got all of my water for the day even though that meant sitting on the couch with a glass & straw sucking down the last 24 ounces before bed. Not a bad day overall...2652 calories burned - 1549 calories eaten = 1103 total calories burned!
Joe was schedule to have this Sunday off so I requested the day off from the restaurant. We don't get a lot of whole days off together! We started the day by sleeping in until about 9:30, it was wonderful! We were hoping to run couch to 5K week 9 day 2 before breakfast so that we could see how running in the morning worked for us. We each had a banana (105 calories) before we left the house so that we wouldn't have totally empty stomachs.
So my Sunday total, 2237 calories burned - 1535 calories eaten = 702 total calories burned. I usually aim for at least 1000 but at least I didn't go over.
That about wraps up my weekend. Hope you all had a great one & are excited for the upcoming holiday weekend.
