What’s up??!!! How are you all??

I am recovering from the weekend lol. I had my bachelorette spa day which turned into a night out. I was still home by 9 and in bed by 10 but I’m still exhausted and was dehydrated afterwards bahahahahaha! That tells you how little I party these days.

I will show you some pics of Wednesday and tell you all about it but I will leave you with this tidbit…..I fit into a small tanktop!!!! and actually felt good in it!!! What??!!

14 lbs down!!!!

When I lose another 15lbs I get to buy more stitchfix!!!!!

The Kind Diet another cookbook I LOVE! Yes it is also vegan and but there are some delicious recipes in here! There are a handful I make over and over and over that I just love!!!

Leftover chili with bread for lunch today. So delicious!

One of the residents where I work had their freezer break and thaw out so they needed to use up the meat that was in there ASAP, lucky for me they aren’t eating red meat right now so tonight Brandon and I will be BBqing a new York stead with grilled zucchini and mashed potatoes! And we will have lamb burgers tomorrow…..I’ve never had a lamb burger so we will see but I want gonna say no to free food!!!

It turned out soooooo good!!!!

I got the hw that is due tonight all done and worked ahead on tomorrow’s HW. I’m one day ahead now, I wish I was more ahead though. I will need to work on that for next quarter.

Stats for this week:

Cant wait to see what next week holds!!!

Not included in those stats:

My first tempo run tonight!!!!

It was only 1 mile but I didn’t walk at all and was under the pace I wanted so yay!!!

I am going to train properly for this half marathon……did I mention Brandon and I signed up for a half marathon the first weekend in October?

Our first handful of tomatoes have arrived!!! Pictures to come.

I have also given away 4 zucchini this week, we still have 1 in the fridge, 3 on the counter and at least 2 more ready to pick. 3 cucumber on the counter. Time to make more pickles!

Our lettuce is also getting ready to flower and we didn’t make salad last night so i cut the tops and brought them to a coworker.

Tried to find motivation to do some HW at work today, I have a relatively easy but time consuming project due on Friday for my writing class.

I had planned to go home last night and do some HW and workout and basically just be productive, but I got hit with a wave of sadness.

10 years ago this last Monday they found a tumor on my dad’s spine and less than 2 months later he was dead. We are rapidly approaching the decade anniversary of his death and that is really hard. My family is also currently planning a memorial for my brother who died in January to have in our home town in September so emotions are running high all around.

Sometimes you just need a night cry and let it all out. I took that last night now its time to get back to it.

I only worked out twice this week! I started a new fitness program and I pushed it a little too hard. I tweaked my knee, taped it Tuesday evening. It’s still a little funky but its doing much better. Wednesday I took the tape off my knee and then taped my calf.

I was sort of a hot mess. I did an arm workout on Thursday then didn’t work out again the rest of the week. So happy Monday and I am starting from the beginning again! But I won’t go crazy tonight and reinjur my knee and calf.

How was your week?

My blueberry mixture turned out more like blueberry cookie dough, maybe because I used 1/3 butter and 2/3 crisco (I ran out of butter) so instead of mini loaf pans I stuck it in a shallow rectangle pan and make them slightly healthier cookies. Heat them up later with some ice cream!!!

I also bought a cantaloupe and cut that up for snacks this week.

Did you food prep this week?
