New Motivation

I’m getting back in the groove of things — kinda.  I feel like I’ve been losing sight of my goals and making poor decisions in the moment.  I’m weak! I give in sometimes. But when I do, I always try to make up for it by doing better the next day, whether it be consuming less calories or actually doing the exercise that I was suppose to do.  Lately, my weight seemed to be going up instead of back down from eating too much and not working out this past week. However, I’m back down to my 129 weight I was a couple weeks ago.  I feel like that’s TWO WEEKS wasted.  I have barely 8 weeks left to reach my 120 lb goal.  I’m going to have to step up my game!

Monday meals:

Meal Food Calories
Breakfast Cereal 110
Almond milk 30
Snack Fiber One bar 90
Lunch Left over Roasted Chicken Cashew 180
Dinner Salad bar 250
Sushi (3 pieces) 145
2nd Dinner Fish Tacos (2) 400
Snack 2 slices of toast with butter 120
Total 1325

My meals don’t look too bad from yesterday. I did go over a little bit but I also ran 3.5 miles!

Just to give you a little food porn to drool over — check out the sushi I had Daniel get us from the grocery store:


It was delicious. All I can tell you is that there was salmon in it.  Gotta get those Omegas!

So, to hopefully get in the habit of working out more I bought myself some motivation: New running shoes!


They’re the Brooks Adrenaline. They’re so comfortable!  I had the Brooks Ravenna before, which are also good, but the support had worn down over the 1+ year I’ve been running in them so it was time for something new.  New workout attire always gets me motivated.

Daniel decided to retire his Vibrams (from our runs at least) and got himself some new shoes too!

Brooks 2X

I like how bright they are so I’ll always know where he is. They are also Brooks.  He claims they’re the most comfortable shoe his ever worn.

Hopefully we can get some more miles in this week with our new kicks!

Have you gotten something new this week? Or found new motivation?
