So, I’m basically eating veggies and protein. I’m on Ashley’s meal plan for the next 27 days, and on top of that, I can’t have any natural or unnatural sweeteners in my foods. I sorely missed my protein shake in the morning. I know I miss it because I developed a habit around the shake, and so, I just have to get out of this mental funk and start a new habit.
Since I can’t have my shakes, I drink a lot of these infused waters. I keep them in the fridge over night and cycle through them during the day so that there are always two bottles ready to go. One is Guava, the other has lemon and mint. They’re pretty good and they make me drink a lot more water…which I think is a good thing.
Today was the first day in a LONG time that I felt each and every minute of my workout. I had to go slower on my jog because my heart rate wouldn’t go down. It took me a good 2-3 minutes of walking to bring it down to 140 bpm. I usually like to keep an average of 140-150 bmp, and I usually don’t look at my heart rate. I usually go by the time, but today, I felt like my heart was bursting out of my chest, and my shins were burning. I stopped in the middle of my workout to stretch, but it didn’t help. So, I went by my heart rate instead of by the time, and obviously, my timing suffered. I still got the sprints in though. It’s fun to sprint 🙂
There’s me. I just finished my workout and came home to a deserted house. It was lovely. I’ll dedicate a post to my husband later if he lets me take a picture of him! Truly, without his support, I wouldn’t be able to focus this much on my health and fitness. Back to what I was saying, D took the kids out to a tree nursery and to see the planes, so I got a whole other hour to myself! I crashed a bit on the patio to hydrate, and then I made my lunch. Hello EGGS! I love you. I love everything about you! Except for the fact that you come out of a chicken’s bum area…but I’m not eating the shell am I? Oh my gosh, did I mention how much I love eggs? Dinner was easy peasy. I had the usual, ground beef patty with shredded Gow Choy, carrots and spinach,, hummus, baby spinach, radish sprouts.
I’m obsessed with food.
