So, this week I tried doing a meal plan for dinner for the first time. How did it go? 50-50. LOL. One of the meals was a complete bust (as far as I'm concerned). The crock-pot lasagna was AWESOME though. Two nights, we wound up eating out instead. There was a definite pattern to that. Friday, we dealt with getting Avery's and my passports, and I was not willing to cook afterwards. Sunday, with the nasty weather, Mark didn't want to grill.
Despite the fact that I went rather unhealthy when eating out, and binged on chocolate and Twizzlers early in the week, I still lost 2 lbs. Kind of makes me wonder how it would have gone if I'd been better behaved.
As I was writing this up, I realized I did exactly ZERO weighted walks this week. (Unless carrying Avery in the Bjorn at the zoo counts?) I had a reason why I didn't on every day, but it still bothers me. I intend to do a weighted walk during Avery's nap today - assuming she takes it. This week, I WILL DO MORE WEIGHTED WALKS. Hold me to it!

I had a lot of success with running faster this week though - and I find that really exciting! I'm extremely competitive, and would LOVE to be a much faster runner. This week I begin my running taper pre-Cap City. I will also find out if I got in to the NYC marathon.
My Dad and stepbrother booked another climbing trip for June 2013 to Ecuador. My whole reason for climbing Rainier this summer instead of next (giving me more time post-baby) was because Rainier is a pre-requisite to the Ecuador climb. I have not booked a spot on the Ecuador climb yet, because I feel that I have to prove myself on Rainier first. Plus, if I get there and absolutely HATE mountain climbing, it would be rather unfortunate that I had another climb booked.
I had to turn in some registration forms to RMI this week as well. Rather depressing to put in my current weight, and then write in the fitness section that I plan to lose 15 lbs pre-climb. I'm sure whoever reads that is saying - "Uh, yeah right." I would be surprised if I weren't pre-flagged as someone to watch on the mountain. (Their primary goal is a SAFE climb).
Thanks for continuing to read my boring this-week-I-did-this posts. I fully acknowledge that these posts are more for me and keeping me accountable. I know that they can be boring, and I appreciate y'all for reading them anyway!
