Last week, we got free breakfast one morning because it was “Health Ahead” day. Yummo! I had a veggie frittata, apples with peanut butter, a small quesadilla, and infused water. It reminded me that I like water with cucumber and lemon. It’s time to break out the infusion pitcher!
I had a lot of spinach with my lunches last week, with grapes, carrots, raisins and string cheese for snacks.
For exercise, I did spin on Tuesday, muscle attack Wednesday, treadmill on Thursday, and walking on Friday. Yesterday I walked a few miles at a community art fair, and today I rode bikes with Jeff.
Today was mostly on track. For breakfast, I had toast with peanut butter and bananas, with a heap of grapes on the side. Lunch was chocolate cake and cheese puffs. Dinner is back on track with a BLT salad, made with spinach, avocado, tomato, and a bit of bacon. For dessert, I have geek yogurt topped with raspberries.
I haven’t taken a picture of food since the cupcake. I’ve been eating fairly well, though. Notable foods from yesterday include grilled steak with mixed veggies, and a doughnut. Covered both ends of the spectrum, there.
I tried a spin class yesterday and actually had fun! Of course my butt muscles hurt today, despite my efforts that included using a towel for cushioning, lol
I haven’t been taking at all well this week (as you may have noticed by the lack of updates). Today, I’m back at it with new goals on the board, getting a work out, and packing lunches.
I used the a la carte option with a Jillian this morning. I did the warm up and the abs/shoulders circuit. I couldn’t get through all of the compound moves right now, so I modified as needed. I’m still hot n sweaty, so I think modifying worked. 😉
Here’s my goal board for the day
Today I swapped computer gaming for the table top variety. We also went for a walk in our neighborhood and did a spark people video from coach Nicole:
Yesterday, I hit the target for all of my macro nutrients. I’m having withdrawals from sweets, though. I had very little in the way of refined sugar, and I had massive cravings, got flushed in the face, and developed a headache… But I didn’t give in. I was at a manager’s desk. I had grabbed a jar of Hershey kisses and pulled one out. I said to myself “what am I doing,” and put it back. Even though I was still talking to the manager, I decided to start cutting up a green pepper and eating that instead. Woo! Will power. As you may know, I also went for a half hour brisk walk in the morning. Yay fitness!!
This morning I was rewarded with a 1.2 lb weight loss on the scale.
In other news, I stopped using plastic baggies for packing lunches this week, and this is the result. Dear Earth: sorry for using so many plastic baggies. :X
