Weekend Rewind

Today is day 10 of my No-Makeup Challenge. It's really not that much of a challenge. I am doing this by choice until my acne gets back in order. I am feeling a little better in my own skin and my face seems to be clearing up. I will probably go a few more days, but I intend on implementing a week of no-makeup once every month or so. I think it does a lot of your face when you give it a break!

Since I was feeling a tad unconfident due to the lack of makeup, I did at least fix my hair over the weekend.
On Saturday, I did a 10 mile run.

There was definitely some freezing rain going on. Though I felt decently warm, the wintery conditions made for a slick trail. There were plenty of slippery spots despite having rocks and other roughage on the ground! Luckily, I finished without falling on my butt!

On Sunday, Ginger decided she would ditch her water bowl for the toilet...

 ...and I started my healthy eating last week, but since I just went grocery shopping on Saturday, I was able to really go full-force!

I did begin my day with homemade GF waffles and pure maple syrup.

Sure, it may not be 100% healthy, but I am not one to restrict either. I believe that leads to bad decisions later.

Lunch was leftover spaghetti with a side of cooked zucchini, carrots and sugar snap peas. Snack was one of my all-time favs: 2 rice cakes topped with peanut butter and sliced bananas. Yet, what got the gold medal for the day was what I made for dinner.

Quinoa and Black Bean Casserole!

This was a new recipe I tried and I will definitely have to share it in a future post! Super good, super healthy, gluten-free, and vegetarian-friendly!

Aside from all the delicious food I chowed on, Peter and I finished an 8 mile road run. The canal was soaked with rain, so we changed scenery. Peter had never done a road run over a 10k distance, so this was good training for him prior to his first half in April. We accidentally over-dressed. The temperature began in the upper 30s/lower 40s. So we wore long sleeves, gloves and hats. The temperatures quickly rose to the upper 40s/lower 50s. It forced our pace to be much slower than anticipated.

A slow run is better than no run at all, right?

Anyway, this may be my last update until AFTER the honeymoon. I have to cram in some school work after work and running this week, so I will be MIA for a few days! Never fear though, I'll be back!

Ladies, what is the longest you have gone without makeup?

Do you run in wintery conditions? How do you stay safe from injury (slipping and falling in icy spots)?

What was something deliciously healthy you had today?
