Busy Weekend

I realize I never updated my stats on Saturday - it wasn't just because I did gain (as expected), I was just very busy!

Starting Weight: 230.4
This Week's Weight: 228.4
Total Change From Last Week: +1.2 (WW had me up by 1.6 because I went to the bathroom after weighing myself at home and I didn't have time to remove all my clothes and weigh myself again :))
Total Change: -2.0
Height: 5'6"
Highest Non-Pregnancy Weight: 232.2

Part of the gain was that I ate poorly on Friday - I was very hung over from my runner's club annual party the night before and I hadn't been hungover in ages and just needed food to make myself feel better (which didn't really work). Plus I was really anxious/excited to complete the next step of our family room remodeling project and anxious/excited about the Super Bowl.

After the painting was done on Wednesday, the contractors came on Thursday to hang the TV and fix our slider. Because I was out on Thursday night, we didn't get to put the furniture in until Friday. This week/weekend (once the paint has cured more) we will put the books and knick-knacks on the shelves. We are beyond excited of how it turned out.

In order for me to complete my February running goal of 31 miles (but preferably 39 to catch up from falling short in January) I needed to run on Thursday. I couldn't bring myself to get up on Thursday morning to hit the treadmill (and it was too cold to go outside!), so I did 3 miles on the treadmill before showering and getting dressed for my party.

Because I am superstitious, I knew I couldn't run on Super Bowl Sunday (because I did that 5 years ago, the year of the Patriot's 2nd Super Bowl loss and 2 years ago I ran on Saturday before the Super Bowl and that turned out well for us). My friend is running her 1st half in Disney in 3 weeks and she needed 11 miles. I knew I couldn't be there for 8 am, but I knew I could be for 9 am after she finished her 1st 5 miles, so after my meeting I ate a waffle with jam and a banana and headed out for a 5 mile run. It wasn't real pretty but it was 1 minute faster than the previous week.

After showering it was time to start making our cake - I make the cake and frosting on Saturday and put it all together on Sunday.

I was anxious/excited all weekend (I hate it when you wish for the weekend to be over!) and finally the Super Bowl was here. We made a ton of food, but I didn't eat too much of it. And today my eating isn't great because I am just too freaking tired (not hungover thankfully) - We stayed up until after 1:00 watching post-game coverage.

Tonight is trash night so all the super bowl food that is left will get tossed. And then back on program!
