The Scale: This week I weighed in at 135.2 — so, up a little but I’m not sure if that’s because I’m running again regularly or if it’s because of how I ate this week…one thing that I *still* really need to do is start a food journal so that on weeks like this I can look back and pinpoint what might be going on!

The Treadmill: This past week I ran a mile twice in the evenings like my plan was–sure enough it’s working out great and I’ve been recording my best times ever! So I’m very excited about that!

This Week: is Spring Break and that means that we should be home a lot as most of our normal things are cancelled–both of the kiddos have colds, so I’m planning on a stay-at-home-and-get-some-work-done week! Also I’m going to use it to finally jump on the potty training train for Tyler–I’ve been putting it off thanks to some savvy boy-mom friends who advised me to definitely wait till he was at least 2 1/2 and really seemed interested.

The Discovery: I just recently discovered the wonder that is a Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Mug. It could be the best, or worst, thing to ever happen to me! Ok, ok, so that’s a bit dramatic. The wonderful thing about it is that I can now have a delicious fresh from the oven cookie taste anytime I want without inhaling five of them and then 5 the next day (portion control!) It’s also helping me be able to stop and think about my night sweets–is it really worth the calories? Or would I just rather wait a day or so and make a cookie to count for both days? Also since it’s homemade it’s automatically less junky just because I’m using fresh ingredients and avoiding all that nasty processed business.
