We are experiencing unseasonably warm weather here in Virginia. It was near 75 – in November. Nice – but I think it’s making everyone a little crazy. What a day! Anyway…
5:45AM brought Lower Fix Extreme. I’m not sure what’s up with Autumn and all the jumping in Extreme. So although I had to modify a bit for my crappy knees, it was a great workout. And again I was thankful for finding my red band – it made an appearance again! And speaking of the band – whoa…that last exercise with the side shuffle walks…killer. In a good way.
Post workout: Shakeology, almond extract, ice. Yum. (1 red)
Breakfast: Greek Yogurt and raspberries (my standard fav – but I was missing the apples and cinnamon I had yesterday!). (1 red, 1 purple)
Lunch: Chicken patty (3 down, 1 more to go!!), flat out, tomatoes. Today I skipped the avocado. Carrots and cucumbers. (1 red, 1 yellow, 1 green).
Snack: Grapes – decided to have them in the afternoon instead of saving for dessert since I seem to need a boost more mid-day instead of after dinner. (1 purple)
Dinner: I had grand plans of making philly cheese steak peppers – but after a long, crazy day – I just didn’t have it in me for an involved cooking night. So I improvised. I grilled a few scallops that I had in the freezer, made a quesadilla with 2 corn tortillas, 1/2 blue container of cheese, 1/2 avocado and then a nice salad. (1 red, 1 yellow, 1 blue, 2 green).
CONFESSION: Ok…so I’ve said a few times it was a crazy day. I gave in to a Milky Way Midnight mini. *sigh*. But I looked it up and it was only 36 calories. So not a big deal – more of a mental hit since I gave in. I’ll give up my scoop of almond butter that I’ve been trading for my orange container. Small slip – still doing great, feeling great (a little sore!) and motivated.
