21 DFX – Day 5

So today didn’t start off as well as I planned.  I slept funny – and woke up with a pain in my shoulder.  I put off doing the workout (Cardio Fix Extreme) until after work.  I will say – not my best effort.  I’m always more tired at the end of the day, and my shoulder was still bothering me.  So I didn’t use weights for most of the exercises.  For my reduced effort I still built up a sweat – these workouts are no joke!

Morning:  Shakeo, water, ice, almond extract.  (1 red)

Breakfast:  Greek yogurt with raspberries (1 red, 1 purple)

Lunch:  Chicken patty (last one!!  they were yummy and filling – but I’m getting tired of them!), flat out and tomatoes.  Cucumbers and carrots.  (1 red, 1 yellow, 1 green)

Snack:  Grapes (1 purple)

Dinner:  Philly Cheese steak peppers (recipe here).


These are yummy!  I modify them a bit – the beef I found was shaved (hard to find!) but only a 14 oz package.  I fit the stuffing into 4 peppers – and used an entire blue of cheese since I didn’t have any blue yet today.  I was trying to think of a yellow to have and then I thought…it’s Friday…work was crazy busy this week – I’m going to trade a yellow for a glass of wine.  I know that this trade was only allowed in 21DF and not 21DFX, but I can live with it :-).  (1 red, 1 1/2 green, 1 blue, 1 yellow).

I’m probably down a few veggies today.  If I need a snack, I guess I’ll try to appease myself with some carrots.  Oh – and I still have an orange…time to grab some almond butter!
