I have a problem and some random photos

Hey party people!  How’s your week coming along?

Mine has been a little rough but I guess that tends to happen from time to time, right?

Aside from my rough week, I have been struggling to keep my diet in check.  For me, once I start eating shitty food, it slowly morphs into a problem <— where I’m at now.

SO, with that being said, it is time to clean. it. up.  For the rest of the week, I am going to work on my path to eating clean again.  Which means I am going to focus on cutting out the following:

1) Sugar (ice cream, I’m looking at you!)

2) Alcohol (waaah!!!)

3) Processed carbs

My weekends these days have been fairly boring so I haven’t been taking pictures like I usually do.  There are a couple of random pictures from the last few weeks that I thought I would share.

A friend of ours, Ryan is going to run the Chicago marathon and so he and his wife had a little rooftop party to help raise money for PAWS.  The rooftop had a cool view of Union Station.

Image

And the food was quite delicious!

Sunshine + Beer (which I don’t ordinarily drink but…when in Rome, right?)

Image

I went on a run for the first time in a loooong time and snapped a quick photo of the skyline.  I did a .5 mile warm up + 3 mile run + .5 mile cool down.  My legs are still giving me issues so I think I’ll have to continue to layoff for a while 😦

Now that the summer is winding down, we were sure to grab at least one more concert in the park.  Boy was it CROWDED!  Crowds are not my favorite (read: I am a total lunatic when it comes to crowds in that I. can’t. deal.) so we left at intermission.

We had a little lunch at West End because we could bring the dogs.  I’m not sure why though because every time they come, I get so annoyed that I begin to question my life choices.

That’s all I’ve got for now! 

Has anyone else been slipping up when it comes to food or fitness goals?

-As usual, I find that the fitness/working out part is easy but my real challenge is with my diet!
