Food of the Week
I made Easy Shredded Crock Pot Chipotle Chicken Tacos this week and they were so good! I figured out they are (about) 7 WW points per taco (served on a small corn tortilla). Recipe coming to the blog on Friday! I also went to the State Fair and tried a deep-fried Buckeye (hey, I do live in Ohio after all) and it was not worth whatever points I am sure it was! Ew.
Activity of the Week
I ran the Commit to Be Fit 5K on Sunday in 45 minutes 18 seconds (14:35 pace per mile). This was my first official race since the blood clot in my lung stopped me from running just over a year ago. It took me 363 days to run again and 13 months to race again. It was my second first 5K. Read my full race recap .

How is it so easy to gain 4 pounds, but I lose them one by one?! I guess this is a mini-example of how weight-loss goes throughout our entire lives. It is easy to gain weight (for whatever reason – mine is major medical issues which caused me to be sedentary for an extended period of time combined with poor food choices since then and a slow return to exercise). But, I remember when I gained weight the first time right out of college and I literally felt like one day I woke up and said, “How did I gain all of this weight?!” I still didn’t do anything about it immediately and when I did decide to get healthy, it was a slow process and eventual weight loss – far from overnight! Thank you all for your encouragement since last week ! I am on a journey – not a race – and I Will. Get. There.
Until the next mile marker,
