Today is Wednesday. Wednesday is the day everything I committed to over the weekend generally goes to the toilet. I go out for lunch (because I’ve ate in all week – I deserve a treat!), I don’t do my workout, I get lazy at home and start to focus on the weekend ahead (when I’ll reinvest myself again). I am so determined not to let Hump Day break me. I won’t let it.
Breakfast: 7:10 am, 3 eggs, sausage patty, 1/2 avocado, one zucchini
Good breakfast. Boyfriend called during it so I couldn’t enjoy it as much as I’d like, but it was nice to talk to the boyfriend as well. Trade-offs. 🙂
Lunch: 12:15 pm, leftover meatballs and marinara sauce, steamed zucchini. Snacks of cashews about an hour before that.
So…bad idea to eat a Be Kind bar this afternoon. I don’t think I had enoug for lunch because I was starving by around 3:30. I had some carrots and almond butter, but it wasn’t enough. I went downstairs and got a coffee (that was horrible) and a BeKind bar. Almost immediately after eating it I got a throbbing headache and my tummy started feeling ‘off’. I know it was a reaction to whatever was in that bar. I know it’s probably not completely Whole30 compliant, but I was trying not to read too closely (ignorance is not bliss). I learned my lesson…never again.
I wanted to get on the bike for an hour or so tonight, and when I got home I felt good so I didn’t eat a hard boiled egg before I got on. I knew I’d be a little shaky on the bike because it was the third night in a row for it, but about 20′ into it I started to get lightheaded. I pulled the plug and proceeded to eat two bananas, a Lara Bar and a bunch of raisins.
Next time, need to do better. Always eat my pre-workout and post-workout meals. Gotta do it.
Dinner: 7:15 pm, leftover coconut crusted chicken, brussel sprouts and apple mix, 1/2 yam and 1/4 avocado.
Leftover night!! Love it. No cooking! Not that I don’t like cooking, but I enjoy spending time doing things other than cooking sometimes. Everything was good the second time around.
I survived Hump Day!!! I didn’t give into any temptation (aside from that stupid BeKind bar), I started my workout even though I didn’t want to and I finished the day off good. So, SO proud of myself. Major hurdle overcome.
I love the Sing-off. Seriously. It’s such a fun show. How can you not have fun watching those performances? High energy, lots of talent. Love it.
