Why did I do it? Not once but three times over the holiday weekend! I have been eating really clean over the past several weeks and have been feeling great. That is until this past weekend. The hot dogs, fudge brownies, beer, and anything else I felt like I had to have at the holiday cookouts hit my stomach and made me suffer. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy and do not deprive myself treats if I crave them but I have really limited them and have controlled my portions so much better. Lots of fruits and fresh veggies every day until this past weekend. Last night was it and after I ate half a bottle of Tums I was pounding water until I went to bed.
I have added my swim/bike/run numbers on the side of my blogs and had fun this weekend with all that I did. Ran some shorts runs that felt great. Swam my meters in an outdoor pool which I admit was really cool. Rode with Scott on Saturday to practice drafting and then applied this to the ride on Memorial Day morning with a group of friends. Thrilled to say that this girl DRAFTED and for the first time could really tell the benefits of riding with a pack. It was a blast!!
So onto a new week and back to cleaner eating.
