A run was planned for me Saturday although there wasn't a lot of time for it. I'm loosely following Galloway's 10K training schedule as a guideline to help me increase distance and time on my feet running. If I had been home I would have shot for 5 miles this weekend, instead I just figured I'd crank out a speedy (for me) mile. I ran a 10:58 mile which made me happy. It was sooo cold Saturday morning and I had snot running down face. Lovely visual, no? Other than the run I got in exercise by chasing around my 7 year old nephew and almost 2 year old niece.
We had ham, potato salad, corn pudding, coleslaw, homemade rolls, and Mom's from-scratch awesome baked beans. I also made a cheesecake Saturday morning so it would be set by the time we ate. I indulged in one plate of food and only had seconds of the baked beans. I didn't actually have any cheesecake until Sunday because I had no room. I was comfortably stuffed, which was a nice change for me.
Had a couple of Mom's from-scratch cinnamon rolls sans icing for breakfast. And a repeat of Saturday's plate minus the ham with a hot dog instead. haha. I hadn't had a hot dog in forever and Mom had some in the fridge in case my nephew got picky about food. It was awesome, mechanically seperated meat and all. I did have a piece of cheesecake after this lunch.
One the drive home I had a double cheeseburger and fries from McDonald's because that was something I hadn't had in awhile. I'm not a big fan of McDonald's fare for many reasons but the main one is because I worked there for years throughout high school and college.
While my eats weren't supremely healthy I considered it a success because usually during holiday meals I'm stuffed to the point of nausea. I'm also glad that I'm to a point where I do not feel guilty when I don't eat as healthfully as I like. I feel like the occasional indulgences are what keep me on track.
