First days back exercising. Over the headaches and some of the cravings.
Day 7: Monday, May 7th
Back to work! But I forgot my laptop... so back home! Ha. Anyway... egg muffins for breakfast. Leftover roasted veggies, I think? Went to kickboxing class and it was stuffy and hot (nearly 90 degrees) in our room. Worked hard, and had a good sweat. After the drive home I was still feeling the need for a little something extra, so I did a quick mile down Blackberry as the storm rolled in. Beautiful lightning, and lightning bugs! Came in to dinner being ready (love my husband) - baked tilapia, squash, and zucchini.
Day 8: Tuesday, May 8th
Back to work - for real! Today we had our weekly weigh-in for Biggest Loser - down FIVE pounds in a week. Thanks, CFD! I didn't exercise at all last week, so this is remarkable! I don't remember what food I ate during the day. I think it involved an egg muffin, an apple, two grilled chicken tenders, half a sweet potato, applesauce, and a boiled egg. Went home so Josh could hit the gym (#4# Crossfit Competition is this weekend, and he's competing in the Advanced level!), then I headed to body sculpting with Nichole. We did some major buns and thighs, and as always planks and upper body, and some abs. After we did a slow mile in the drizzle... and when I say slow, I mean SLOW. My legs were dead from sculpting them, I reckon. We went to Target to pick up a gift, and then we did the most amazing thing EVER - we went to MEXICAN for dinner. I had steak fajitas and a guacamole salad - hold the tortillas, sour cream, beans, and rice, please. I cleaned my skillet - delish! I had to slide the chips over to her side so I wouldn't accidentally grab one. Great night out!
Day 9: Wednesday, May 9th - TODAY
Had the usual egg muffin for breakfast with an added glass of watery apple juice. Enjoyed a boiled egg for a mid-morning snack, and then hit Chik-fil-a with a couple co-workers. I had a 12 count grilled chicken nuggets, fruit cup, and unsweet tea. I was completely satisfied after that meal! Just ate my mid-afternoon snack of baby carrots and cucumber/avocado dip, and will be going to kickboxing at the Y again tonight! I may try to get another run in if the rain stops... hopefully 2 miles! Tonight we're having breakfast - turkey sausage, bacon, eggs, biscuits (for Josh and Carter), and smoothies! I'm figuring out how to mix things up so I don't get bored with chicken and fish. I can't wait to try some new recipes next week! I feel really good overall... still kinda sluggish during workouts... but the food aspect of it is definitely getting easier.
