Normally I get to meetings early so I have a few minutes to chat with everyone and catch up with the regular Tuesday ladies. I was running really late yesterday and ended up walking in after the meeting had started and I was surprised when a few of the ladies looked at me and said things like 'oh good you're here'. The meeting I go to is comprised of some of the strongest women I know and it is truly encouraging, every single week, to hear about their successes and how they overcame their challenges. I feel so lucky every week to be a part of that meeting and to be able to learn how to continue to be successful.
I missed the celebrations part of the meeting (boo!) so if there were any big celebrations I hope someone will let me know. If any of you are reading this and you celebrated last night... here's a YEAH!!! (clap clap clap) for you. Good job!
Last week my leader did something after our meeting that was a first for our group. She took all of our name tags and made a ball with them and gave them to one of the members (my friend Jen, in fact) to take home. Karen, my fabulous leader, said that whoever had the ball had the power of the group with them. We did this again last night after the meeting and even though I don't have the ball of name tags I still feel like I have the power and encouragement of the group.

Last week I logged the following distances:
Mon - 3.16 miles, average pace 17:41, average speed 3.39 mph
Wed - 3.10 miles, average pace 17:18, average speed 3.47 mph
Thu - 3.23 miles, average pace 17:09, average speed 3.50 mph
Fri - 2.94 miles, average pace 17:27, average speed 3.44 mph
Sat - 2.75 miles, average pace 17:29, average speed 3.43 mph
Mon - 3.16 miles, average pace 16:44, average speed 3.59 mph
I racked up a whopping 34 activity points, which I did not convert into food points; I just logged them. When I went to weigh-in today I was rewarded with a fabulous 3 pound loss. It was certainly a challenge but I felt amazing and I've never regretted a workout once it was done. Have you?

Do you do anything like this to figure out why you had a bad week?

The good news is that while Dan was on vacation on Monday, we went for a walk and while I normally only do 2 miles a day during the week we decided to do almost 2.5 miles. That day I set a PR on our walk and I was really excited. Until I did the same route this morning and set another PR! I cut my time by nearly 10 seconds this week! My average mile was 16:44 this morning!!
Then I stepped on the scale this morning and found out that I was down 1 pound. Naturally that would happen AFTER my official weigh-in.
Does this happen to you too? How do you handle it?

For those who are still reading... let's move on! For some reason I'd forgotten to bust out one of my favorite recipes this summer.... until now. Tonight for dinner I made Balsamic Tomato Salad. While we were eating it my husband Dan, who self admittedly will only eat about 8 vegetables, said oh my god, this is like candy but with vegetables. How can you argue with that?!

What do you think you can do to spend time with friends and/or family without the event revolving around food?
