Say what??? Ah I feel so much better now after getting off track for two weeks. I worked my BOOTAY off this week. It's been a long time since I've had such a successful week - I stuck to my macros, no binging or going crazy, and I made time for sometime of movement daily. 

That said thanks to IIFYM and approaching the week with positivity and balance in mind, I didn't FEEL deprived or miserable this week. I felt pretty great. I still managed to fit in some delicious Talenti Mint Chocolate Gelato a few night this week (just 1/2 cup), I still have some of the homemade chex mix and chicken noodle soup my mother-in-law sent as a treat, etc. Aside from these types of treats, I kept it pretty basic and clean - trying to get more vegetables by sneaking them in - spaghetti squash and zucchini as noodles and throwing veggies in my eggs or stirfrys. I'm trying to limit my dairy to one or two servings a day (dairy tends to be pro-inflammatory) with the ultimate goal of weaning back to just special occasions. 

I think the biggest change this week was adopting a kinder mindset about myself. I know I kind of wrote my weight gain off last week as purposeful and to some degree it was but I was still a little bummed about it. Instead of using the setback as a reason to engage in negative self-talk, I used it as motivation. I AM capable of more. I CAN run another mile. I AM worth working hard because the results will pay off in the end. 

As for today, I woke my butt up early and got my miles in this morning. Today is a long day and I won't be home from school until dinner time. I know that after dinner I'll need to study today's lectures because I have another exam coming up on Monday - this time it's EENT - Eyes, Ears, Nose, & Throat. Speaking of...did I mention I had a lovely URI all last week?  Yeah it was awesome not being able to breath - scratchy throat, sneezing, post-nasal drip that progressed to coughing and really messed with my sleep. Thankfully I usually only get sick once a year so hopefully that was it. Poor Nick got sick immediately after me - welcome to marriage! We share everything! 

This is another reminder to go enter my AMRAP nutrition bar give away - two posts below this one! I will be choosing THREE winners - each winner gets 8 bars in a flavor of your choice! Share with friends and family - these bars are delicious!!!

If you're anything like me, you get super bored doing the same workout over and over again. I love when people post what they do or give ideas of ways to mix things up. Here is a workout similar to what I did last night - I'll probably give it a try this weekend!
