Soooo Happy!! My calves…helll my whole body is torched! Ashley killed my calves yesterday and I didn’t think I’d be able to jog, but once I got out there, my calves warmed up, and I just didn’t feel them anymore. My breathing and my chest are what stops me from jogging as far and as fast as I would like. I get out of breath so easily…sucks. Anyhow, I’m so happy because I ran my fastest time today! I knocked two minutes off of my regular time! Wahoo me!
I got home and had 2 eggs, quinoa, spinach, radish/pea sprouts, and tomatoes for lunch again. I really, really, really like this lunch. I’ll branch out to something new eventually, but I’m on an egg and chicken kick right now. The veggies had 1/2 tsp of olive oil, and the egg had soya sauce.
Oh my Gosh. That evening I was TIRED! My sides hurt (still learning the names of the muscle groups so be patient with me), my calves hurt, my quads hurt, and my butt hurt! Oh. My. Gosh.
I foam rolled, I stretched, I complained, and then it was dinner time! We had soup since it was a cooler evening.
Dinner: 1 oz baby scallops, 1 cup broccolinni (or however you spell it), handful of asparagus stems, 5 oz of chicken, 1/2 cup nappa cabbage.
This is what D and the kids had. Nearly the same thing, again in smaller portions, but with shrimp dumplings. Oh how I wanted those shrimp dumplings! You might think, “oh, shrimp wonton hardly has any carbs to them, so why not just have one?”. Well, when I had gestational diabetes, those dumplings shot my glucose through the ceiling. It was partially the wonton skin, but it’s also the crazy amount of sugar that’s put in the filling.
