Happy 4th of July everyone!
Can you believe it’s July already? Jeez. Is time going by super fast or what? Before I know it, summer is going to be over and winter will be here. Okay, okay, maybe I’m going kinda far here but you know what I mean. Sigh. Anyway, the theme for this month is awesome because it not only includes our eats but also FITNESS! Thank you for hosting, Jen.
Oh yeah, by the way, it’s freaking hot out today. And it was yesterday. And it will be all week. 90-100s hot. Way too hot for me. I like a happy medium of 75-80 please and thank you! Ha.(Tuesday) I woke up and had my booty weight training day today from the Curvalicious program. Today, I realized how much working out really calms me and relaxes me and makes me feel at peace with myself. It was weird but I actually identified those feelings as such which is awesome. As I was doing squats, I was thinking to myself “wow, there is nothing in my mind except this workout, I feel so at ease and so… good!” I’m happy because this means that fitness is truly becoming a part of me like I want it to. I want to never be able to live without fitness.
Anyway, the workout was good although I feel like I’m gonna have to go heavier next time. I progressed yay. The workout took me 50 minutes and I was starting to get a bit nauseous at the end, surely because I was working out on empty stomach and my glycogen was getting depleted.
9am: Post workout breakfast was a Mocha Banana Protein Shake. I love this shake. So much. It’s too good. Especially with the Hershey’s Special Dark cocoa powder (oh my gawd, is that cocoa amazing)
11:30am: Larabar Uber Cherry Cobbler bar from the prize pack I won from a giveaway at Passing Daisies. I haven’t had these bars yet so it was a little exciting trying it out. The bar is surprisngly a lot more tart than I expected. It’s much more tart than sweet. That’s good, it’s a good change up from the usual sweet bars.
2pm: iChoice meal replacement shake. I’m starting to get used to this taste. But I’m still not a big fan. Beh. I just chug it down. That was done while I was working/setting out a meal plan for the week (yay)
4:30pm: Mahi mahi burger with Ezekiel bread, lettuce, peppers, laughing cow cheese wedge
I saw a tweet by FitFluential about the #plankaday challenge and ummm of course I accept!
I dropped down and got one down for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Gonna get that number up, you’ll see.
6pm: Arctic Zero chocolate peanut butter flavor ice cream with Enjoy Life chocolate granola, Erewhon Raisin Bran cereal, very cherry frozen fruit blend, and PB2 syrup. If you like that low calorie/high protein ice cream I’m eating make sure you ENTER in my giveaway to win 4 flavors of the bars PLUS 8 pint flavors all delivered to your door by the company. Healthy deliciousness, I tell you!
8:20pm: two eggs with onion and spinach and salsa
And now it’s time to go see Ted. I highly doubt that movie will be funny or good, but my friend wants me to come, soo..
