I Had to Run Outside

It's Monday, and I already have some amendments to make on my dinner and exercise plans for the week. They are all positive changes, though!

First change is that I had leftover salad instead of subway for dinner last night. My mom ordered a gigantic salad for my little brother's birthday party, and she sent us home with some leftovers. (thanks, mom!)



My little brother turns four tomorrow. My family and I had a fun time celebrating his birthday yesterday. He got a new tent (which my sister, brother and I squeezed ourselves into at one point) a scooter and a bunch of other fun gifts.







I had a little piece of cake, a lot of yummy salad and a small meatball sandwich at the party. I was full, but not too full. I was happy with myself for eating so well.

As for my workout for yesterday, I didn't strength train as originally planned. Instead, I went for a run outside.



Not only was this my first run for the year, it was also my first run outside since beginning of fall.



When I let the dogs outside in the afternoon, the sun was shining and I just couldn't help myself. I needed to go for a run, and it needed to be outside. I'm so glad that I braved the cold (35 degrees) to run. It was so worth it! Nothing beats a run outside. Nothing!

Since I went rouge on my dinner and exercise plans yesterday, here's the new plan for the week:
