Thankfully, I’m feeling much better than yesterday. I didn’t start out that way – so I slept through my usual morning workout time. But I did come home and catch up. Although I went off script a bit – I wasn’t feeling Cardio Fix Extreme – too much jumping. So I went old school and treated myself to my favorite workout – Dirty 30 from 21 Day Fix. It was a great work out and a fun revisit.
Food today…even though I didn’t work out in the morning, I still started my day with Shakeology. I’ve mentioned that I use 1/3C unsweetened almond milk with 2/3 cup water and some ice. I tried a new almond milk – unsweetened almond vanilla coconut milk. This stuff is incredibly good!! No need for the extracts that I usually add. YUM!
Again, work got the best of my schedule…I didn’t get to my breakfast until about noon – so I had my Greek yogurt and berries plus a piece of plain bread. (1 red, 1 purple, 1 yellow). Around 2:30 I managed to get to my lunch – spinach salad with chopped grilled chicken (2 green, 1 red). I topped my salad with some delicious peach white balsamic vinegar. Just before my workout when I got home, I had a piece of cheese (1/2 blue).
Dinner…I made one of my husband’s favorite meals – pork tenderloin medallions with chopped olives and capers. This was pretty fix-friendly…maybe some slight cheats. I sliced the pork into 1/2 inch medallions. Dredged them in some flour (didn’t use much, but technically would be part of a yellow), salt & pepper. Browned in a pan (only used 2t oil for all of the meat). Added 1/2C chicken broth, 1/2C white wine, 1/2C chopped olives and 2T capers. simmered until liquid reduced. I figured for the containers, I had 1 red of meat and 1 orange of olives/capers. To that I had 1 green of broccoli. I didn’t have a yellow, so since it’s Friday and I had to open a bottle of wine to cook with, I had some wine.
I plan to finish the day with some grapes (1 purple). I will still have 1/2 blue left. If I need a bedtime snack, I may have a few almonds or a little more cheese.
