Damn you, Texas.

Brian and I went to Dallas/Arlington/Ft. Worth for Thanksgiving. While it was a pretty cool place to visit, we did nothing but EAT CRAP the whole time we were there. I won't lie. I was scared to get on the scale this morning - so I didn't do it.

As most of you know, Thanksgiving is traditionally a day to stuff your face, wear your fancy elastic pants and watch football (while probably snacking on some leftovers or snacking on food before it's put out for the meal). Well, we did all of that. (We also played kickball. Kickball on Thanksgiving is now going to be a tradition - that was SO fun!) Plus, the whole time we were in Texas, we ate fast food and Mexican food like we needed it to survive.

I tried my best to get the healthiest option that was offered at Taco Cabana, Jack in the Box, El Arroyo and Sonic, but dammit, it gets rough. Especially when every one else around you has greasy tacos and french fries. I gave in, but just a little bit. Okay - a medium bit. Jack in the Box has delicious burgers - and they don't kill you anymore! Yay!

I will say, however, that I did get some running in while I was there! I even took the kids from Brian's family with me once - bad idea, but at least they got moving. I didn't do as well as I would have hoped (stupid rain) - but at least I got my butt moving when I was gorging myself; just not as much as I would have liked.

I've got just a few more weeks left until my death (erm, my Half Marathon). What's on tap this week training schedule wise?

Monday: Jog 60 sec - walk 90 (Repeat 11 times)
Tuesday: Rest - Walk X as long as she can go
Wednesday: Walk 60, Jog 38, sprint 22 (Repeat 11 times) **THESE DAYS ARE THE WORST!!!**
Thursday: Jog 60, walk 70 (repeat 12 times)
Friday: Rest - Walk X as long as she can go
Saturday: Jog 60, walk 55 (Repeat 40 times or 4.75 miles)
Sunday: Rest

Wednesdays and Saturdays suck! But, hey, it's all in the name of health, AMIRITE!?

  1. You did awesome. Holidays are always hard, as are vacations. The kickball game is a great idea, it is exercising!

    Good luck with Wednesday and Saturday, they are def the hard ones.
