A new round is starting next Monday, and this time there's a lot more people from work playing, so it would definitely make things more interesting. I want to join, but need to think about a fitness challenge. Each week you get a 20% bonus for losing 1% of your body weight, which for me is very challenging. However, if you are close to goal weight you can opt to do a fitness challenge instead. Since I'm signed up for doing the Mother's Day half marathon and I should be on week 2 of my training plan, but have not really been following it, maybe my challenge should be to do all the training runs. I am only hesitant though because I don't want to set myself up for injury by over training. I have struggled with plantar faciitis years aga, and tendonitis in my hips when I tried to start back up after Tilda was born, and it sucks!!!

My first round of Game On ended this last Monday. Our team didn't win, so I'm out $100. I'm ok with that though, I lost 5 pounds and have finally gotten back on the calorie counting bandwagon, which I know works well for me to lose weight. That's more than enough to count it as a win in my book! I also found a few recipes for making healthy food ahead of time. Why have I not done this before?! Having a bunch of cooked chicken breasts and sweet potatoes doesn't really take that much prep time, but it's very versatile for cooking a quick weeknight dinner, or throwing together a work lunch. In general, I'm fine eating the same thing over and over. As long as I'm not hungry, it's all good!
