Day 27 Update! And, Potluck vs. Me? Who Won????
Day 27 Update! And, Potluck vs. Me? Who Won???
Waking up, getting out of bed, and putting my clothes on! LOL—Sunday’s my day of rest.
6:33am ¾ cup almond milk, 1 scoop protein powder (24 grams protein), 5 frozen strawberries
10:45 am 2 egg spinach and green onion omelet
1:15pm melon and 12 almonds
4:30pm Chicken veggie soup, salad with peppers, onions, tomatoes and 1 tbsp balsamic vinaigrette (homemade)
5:30pm More salad (above), 3 bean chili (2 tbsp), and pear walnut gorgonzola salad (I hope I don’t get the bubble guts! LOL I think only two small pieces of gorgonzola ended up in the serving I had.)
3/4 cup almond milk
How do I feel?
Today, I went to a POTLUCK, y’all! Potlucks, to me, are usually synonymous with starchy carbohydrate overload! To prepare, I actually ate a small meal before the potluck and drank 16oz of H2O. At the potluck, to be quite honest, there were very few items that appealed to me enough to venture out although I was intrigued by the pear walnut gorgonzola salad and did have some. Of course, there was an over abundance of dips, chips, and desserts, but those really didn’t tempt me. I was a little nervous about the potluck and thought it would take me down, but it was actually o.k. Hehehee! I WON!
Plan recap AND ONE MORE THING I WANT YOU TO KNOW! :)
So after three days of an overflow of info, here's my plan, pint-size edition:
1) exercise—vary it up and make sure there is a good mix of cardio, weight training, core work, and stretching
2) eat—close to the source. Lean meats and veggies. Protein + carb + fat=fuel
3) drink—all-you-can drink h 2 da izzo fest!
Now, that you understand the three components of my strategy, I want you to understand one last thing. If I lose no weight or any inches, I am ok with that! I published my stats because if the numbers do change, that’s great, but that is not my sole intention. For me, this is about the journey. Also, I wanted to challenge myself to go a little higher/harder with my efforts. In the grand scheme of things, I only added one additional day of exercise and am COMMITTING to water intake and NOT EATING OUT. So, really no biggie, right? Right! LOL Let’s see what happens! Thanks for coming with me on this journey!
