And this is why I've been maintaining and not losing. June started out with so much promise but then fizzled. I think we had a lot going on and then being in the process of selling our 3rd car, having to go out at weird random times to show the car off and the finally getting it sold took a lot of the wind out of my sails to to speak. The motivation was there, just not much that I could do with people calling at odd times. Anyway, the good news is that it's done and now I can just keep on moving forward (downward.. maybe?!)
Overall, food choices in June were better. I'd say about 70% good until my husband decided to introduce Nutter Butters to me. In all of my (almost) 40 years, I've never had a Nutter Butter and now I want all the Nutter Butters. So yea, I need to limit myself with those deliciously evil things.
So I guess June wasn't too bad. It just wasn't as good as I had hoped either.
Weekend recap -
TL;DR - Had a REALLY good weekend!
On my lunch break, a few co-workers and I walked nearby and checked out an art exhibit at the State Archives building of the famous Louisiana painter, George Rodrigue.
|Apparently Friday was "horizontal stripes day" at work|
Friday after work, I went back to Varsity and picked up a second pair of shoes. I really liked those Brooks Adrenalines so I just decided that I'd go ahead and snatch them up too. I also had been doing a fair amount of research on HRM's lately and decided to pick up one. The people at Varsity talked me into the Forerunner 15 since I explained to them all the stuff I wanted it to do. The neat thing about it is that it also tracks steps just like the fitbit and I have been really missing not having one. DC Rainmaker has a really awesome review of the Forerunner 15 if you want to check it out!
Friday, I think Chris and I just watched some netflix or something then proceeded to fall asleep around 8:30. Yep, we are lame like that. And old.
Saturday morning, I wanted to give the ole Garmin a trial run. I met mom and the gym and did 50 minutes on the elliptical and then some weights. I was impressed that the calorie count was actually not too far off on the machine. (Which MFP still over-estimates also though...) And the HRM wasn't too terribly uncomfortable.
After the gym, I went home, showered and then Chris and I went and did our grocery shopping for the week. I finally found some Carmel Torani syrup (they have the salted caramel now moreso than the regular. Yuck!) So, I snagged a couple bottles at the store.
After the store, we decided we would finally go check out X-Men Days of Future Past! (My last movie was Captain America.. I've been slacking so bad this summer!) So we were very pleasantly surprised that a movie we looked forward to for quite a while now lived up to its expectations! We really enjoyed it. Plus McAvoy. (boom chicka wow wow) And I did really good at the theater. I only had a pickle and a water!
The rest of Saturday was spent getting my Brother-in-Law caught up on Silicon Valley (such a funny show!)
Sunday, I hemmed and hawed about getting up and getting a run in. But ultimately I decided to do it. I realized soon as I got outside and drove to the park that it was already blazingly hot. Running was 'dicey'. So I opted for a run/walk until I froze in my tracks. My biggest fear was slithering right in front of me.
So I finally finished up my Run/Walk and headed home, did laundry, cleaned house and all that fun stuff. Also made a few meals for the week ahead of time too. Despite the snake sighting it was a good weekend though.
I also managed to get up and get a solid mile in of straight running this morning before work. (If I can continue this trend, the Forerunner will have paid for itself. 3 days in a row of exercise!?!!!!)
So it has been a really good weekend and I have a good plan in place for this week too! Plans are falling into place for WDW too! I'm excited to share with you guys! Soon..... :) ºoº
What are your plans for July? Are you participating in any challenges?
