half marathon over the weekend. No? Oh, go read my race recap. It's edge of your seat, nail bitingly fun! After the race we ordered room service (it was so-so but not great) and I enjoyed my birthday cupcake from the team while I sat in the ice bath (that's one way to make an ice bath instantly awesome). We split a scone in the airport and a protein bar I'd gotten at the expo. The only other thing I ate all day on Monday was fruit that I'd gotten from Mom before we left. Thank god Tina has talked about the snacks she takes through the airport because I packed my carry-on with plenty of fruit so I'd be able to have healthy snacks in the airport and on the plane!After my other long runs (the 15K and the 10 mile) the next weigh-in was always disappointing because I gained.

On Monday, after traveling all day, I was not looking forward to trying to plan out a meal. Frankly I was just exhausted so cooking (even if we'd have had food in the house, which we didn't) was a non-starter.

Yes, I've matured so much since living this plan for the last 2.5 years!
So imagine my surprise when I got on the scale yesterday and my leader said that I lost weight! WHAT? Yes, I lost 0.6 pounds and I have no idea how. I mean I know I had the race but I also know that I ate/drank more Points+ than I should have per day and struggled to get in all the good health guidelines. So I guess the scale is still a mystery to me... YIPPEE!!
