Meal Planning Monday and Sweaty Set-Up for the Week

Sweaty Stats: Friday I wasn’t able to make it to my planned run because of the rain, boo!  I had to go to the gym…I hit the elliptical and did some core work.  On Saturday I went on a short run with my hubby, we did some interval moves, and finished up with a few sets of stairs.  The weather was perfect!  Cloudy, cool, and even a bit misty.  Sunday, as usual, was a rest day.

Most of my birthday festivities are over.  Yes, I still have a few more fun things planned!  Doesn’t everyone celebrate birthdays for 3 weeks!?! So now I need to get “back on track” with eating.  On a side note, 1. I feel like “we” over-use “back on track” – including myself.  2. Birthday celebrations aren’t always the healthiest and I know I’ve indulged.  Enough is enough.

Some more birthday love – flowers from JC and new iPhone case and luggage tag from my neighbor 

Congrats to everyone who ran the Carlsbad Marathon yesterday!  I’m bummed I couldn’t make it out there this year.  This was actually my first ever half marathon a few years ago, so it holds a special place in my heart 🙂 It’s a pretty race, flat course, and starts and ends in a mall which makes parking and logistics a piece of cake.

Do you meal plan for the week on Sunday (which is smarter than Monday!)?
Any fun runs this weekend?
Do your birthday celebrations span for a few weeks too?  Or is that just me??

  1. What a fun a birthday, I’m going to tell my husband celebration needs to last 3 weeks! He better start planning! I love that phone case, but I typically only buy 99 cent ones, I break them way too easy.
