Ick, I hate feeling like a failure when I gain weight. I know it's only a couple of pounds, and the time to worry would be if this happened week after week after week, which would put me back at where I used to be. I'm going to brush it off and just work harder this week to get a loss!
It's no surprise to me that I gained. I snacked like crazy this week, which never helps anything. I also got new tennis shoes, and I started wearing them on Wednesday. Well, I now have annoying blisters on my heels, which hindered the long workout I wanted to do yesterday. SO, I'm returning the shoes, which means I'm still trying to find the perfect pair. I need shoes that have a wide toe box and don't create blisters (obviously). Anyone have a recommendation?

I haven't completely decided, but I might do my weigh-in on Thursday next week. I will be waking up SUPER EARLY on Friday to drive to the airport to leave for Miami! Can't believe it's only a week away! So, weighing in on Thursday would help because I'm sure I will be so busy early Friday morning getting ready for my trip that I might not have enough time to post it.


1) Work out at least 6 days of the week for at least 30 minutes each day
I didn't work out on Friday or Tuesday at all, and I'm not counting my swimming at the lake, which means I only worked out 4 days this week.

2) Log at least 20 miles
16 < 20...FAIL!

3) Try a new healthy recipe
I looked at a lot of different recipes, but I never went to the store to get what I would need to make them. I am planning on making Fiesta Tamale Pie this week, and each serving has less than 300 calories!

4) Lose 2 pounds


1) Log at least 20 miles
I want need to look like this more often!

2)  Keep a food journal of EVERYTHING I eat this week
It may not be perfect with measurements, brands, calories, and such, but I think it will help me to see how much I really eat in one day. Plus, I think having to write it down will help with mindless snacking.

3) Try a new healthy recipe
I'm keeping this goal, and we'll see if that tamale pie gets made.

4) Lose 2 pounds
Self-explanatory...will probably always be one of my weekly goals

My mom is off today, so we're going shopping! She is searching for clothes for an upcoming vacation to Cozumel, and I'm on the hunt for the perfect interview outfit (and tennis shoes)!

Y'all have a wonderful weekend! Got any fun plans?
