Weekly Wrap...April 8


This week there were points where I felt very motivated and days when I did not. Last Monday I did two classes at the gym before going straight to work for the day. I was exhausted all day not to mention hungry because I didn’t get to eat much before heading into work. So this Monday I decided to just sleep in and only made it out for two miles before work and I was just fine with that. 

Tuesday was another full day at work. On my break I splurged on this Oreo cupcake.

 And yes it was delicious as it looks. This cupcake was from Twisted Sisters Cupcake. They were on cake wars but unfortunately did not win. I think they should have with this cupcake alone! After work I thought I better do something after eating that cupcake so I did a short 2 mile run before going to the gym and doing Body Pump. 

Wednesday I felt motivated . I woke up to beautiful weather so I couldn’t pass up a long run. I downloaded some new podcasts and ran 12 miles before going into work. I knew this was going to be a short day at work so I didn’t mind running long beforehand. 

Thursday I overslept for work so the whole morning just threw me off. I was so rushed getting ready  that I didn’t have much time for anything before running out the door.  Of course this was another long day at work. Since I didn’t bring lunch, I splurged again and went to Cici’s Pizza. For those of you that do not know what that is, it is an all you can eat pizza restaurant. I never do good at buffets and always seems to leave them with a belly ache because I eat all I can. I gotta get my money’s worth right? Well in my defense I was starving from not eating breakfast and I did make it to the gym to do Body Step and then still managed a three and half mile run afterwards.   

Friday I woke up still not hungry from the day before because of my pizza splurge so I decided to do a Body Pump class that morning. After the gym I stopped at Dunkin Donuts because I got an email for a free cold brew…….score! I had just run out of coffee that morning so this was perfect, so I thought.

 Well I didn’t read the fine print and it was just a sample. Oh well, it was on the way home and it gave me a little boost to run 8 miles after I got home from the gym.   It was not until 12:30 that afternoon that I actually ate something since my lunch the day prior.  After work that evening I tried out a new wine bar with a friend and had a salmon BLT for dinner.  

Saturday- I could not sleep and was up by 3:30 am. Sex and the City was on television so I watched a few episodes before heading to the gym. After the gym I met some friends for brunch for a friend’s birthday. When I arrived home I found this on my door step. 

My teamiblend. I am excited to try the 30 day detox I have been hearing such great things about.  The rest of the day I spent just relaxing since it was a cold and rainy day.  -L

  1. That coffee is so tiny! I think if I was already there I would have been tempted to buy a regular size coffee. Thats probably why they do deals like that! Great job this week. You got in alot even if you weren't motivated every day!

  2. What a bummer to get just a sample of that coffee. I haven't been to Cici's in years. It's better that way cuz I'd eat my "money's worth" too!

  3. An all you can eat pizza restaurant would be dangerous for me.

    Glad you got some decent weather for a long run. I'm still waiting for that.

  5. LOL on the free coffee - really?? I hate when I oversleep -- it really does throw off my whole day.

  6. OMG I cannot believe that "free coffee" sample, it's literally like a shot glass size, lol. On the other hand, that cupcake looked super yummy!!

  7. I have not heard of this Teamiblend yet. Look forward to hearing all about it. Is it a tea detox? BTW you have some odd ads popping up at the bottom of your post

  8. That cupcake looks amazing-when I lived in Newport News I used to see the Twisted Sisters food truck (van) in the Trader Joe's parking lot all the time and never stopped to get one! Interested to hear about how your Teamiblend detox goes. Have a great week!

  9. I've never heard of Temiblends but that cupcake looks delicious (and was the teamiblends thing behind the splurging this week? :)

    I was super unmotivated all last week. The weather was just seriously atrocious. It's supposed to warm up by Friday & then cool off again -- maybe a good thing, since I have my first race of the year on Sunday!

  10. That is such a baby cup of coffee! haha!
    That cupcake totally makes up for it though!

  11. That cupcake looks absolutely delicious and incredibly dangerous to eat.

  12. What is Teamiblends? That cupcake is adorable and looks SO tasty! Now the coffee would be good too, they just needed to give you 10 more samples ;)

  13. I don't know what Teamiblends is either - I'm curious now. I kind of love the baby coffee cup, it's so cute...unless you really NEED CAFFEINE NOW (I can be guilty of that for sure)!

    1. Could of used double of that coffee, but I guess you can't complain when something is free.

  14. The joke in our office is that Cici's is like a 7-day detox in one afternoon. LOL That Oreo cupcake looked super good. Good luck on your actual 30-day detox. :)

  15. It's nice to hear that even someone as fit and active as you has unmotivated days...

    That tiny iced coffee is funny - but I'd not have bought the full size either, at least that day.

  16. That cupcake looks so worth a little splurge! Mmmmm :)
    You got a lot of solid workouts done, I call the week a win :)
