Aliens & Weigh In Wednesday

I know it's Thursday. I weighed yesterday & had every intention of posting but I never got around to it. I gained 1.8 for the week. Not happy about that but not surprising after all the food that was consumed last weekend. Not to mention the fact that we came home with leftover turtle cake & Dean who's "not much on chocolate" is "pretty much done with it". NO WAY was I throwing this cake away. It was way to good & not cheap to do that. What's that mean?? Yeh, I ate a couple of slices over the course of the week.  It's gone now.

Speaking of food, last night we had dinner at Monjuni's. It's a local Italian restaurant that I love. We had a Groupon. I had 1/4 of a veggie muffaletto. OMG it was soooo good. Fried eggplant, roasted red peppers, asparagus, olive mix. YUM!!! I had a little house salad with it which is just shredded lettuce with Italian dressing & olive mix.

Yesterday was a run day for me & it was going to be cold. I don't really have any cold weather running gear so I had to piece it together & let me tell you I looked ridiculous. Leggings that are too big with a pair of shorts over them to make sure they stayed up, a long sleeve tshirt with a jacket over that, a head band covering my ears & NOTHING matched. It wasn't pretty. Dean & I are both off tomorrow & we will be hitting up Academy to find me some appropriate clothing. I ran 38 minutes straight. This afternoon I go to Yoglates.

So, I've said before that aliens have taken over my body since I've started all the exercising & changing my eating habits. Well, yesterday morning I got up at 4:45 & Dean's comment was "What's the world coming to when you're getting up this early, in the cold to run? Surely, the world is ending soon". I'm choosing to go with the alien theory. Otherwise, it will mean I've been doing all this when I could've just been eating & being lazy because I really don't think God cares if I'm in shape or not. 



  1. You'll get right back on track with your weight in no time. If you ran for 38 minutes, how far did you run? FYI: You gaining weight just means you’re human. So, maybe aliens haven't taken over completely. LOL

  2. I don't even want to step on a scale...I have been CHOWING lately. Ha!

  3. Hahahaha. Oh my gosh, the last part made me laugh!! My husband would die from shock if I got up to run at 5 am!!

  4. LOL!!! and congratulations on the 38 minutes!!

  5. haha! i'm totally with you on eating the cake rather than throwing it away. cake should not be wasted!
