Evening everyone!! Well, was a long weekend. I did ok with food....not great but today was a fresh start and I am ready for the next 3 weeks. last night I had Sunday dinner at my mother-in-law's. She is Italian. Can you guess what she served??? Yep, pasta!! White pasta to boot! Well, I brought my own dinner in a tupperware but on the way over decided against bringing it in. Not eating an Italian woman's Sunday pasta is unheard of! Sooo, yeah I ate it and it was goood!
I figured "what the hey" so I topped it off with a piece of lemon meringue pie I brought for dessert. Ok, so now I have all the yummy stuff and the "confession" out of my system so onward I go. So strange. I was doing soooo well then all of a sudden it got real difficult. So now I have to rid myself of all that sugar again and I will be fine.
Thank you all for your encouragement! Yes, we all slip and fall and this past week has been an example of that. It's part of life and if it wasn't a struggle then everyone would be fit and healthy!! I took Saturday off from the gym but made it up yesterday with an hour of elliptical. It felt sooo gooood!!!
So today was weights day with my trainer. He really hammered me with a full body workout but focusing on back and shoulders followed by some really fast kick-boxing. I am very sore already!! My food was:
4:45 a.m.-protein shake w/water
5:00 a.m.-workout with trainer
6:15 a.m.-protein shake w/water
7:30 a.m.-mushroom omelette
10:30 a.m.-2 lf string cheese
1:30 p.m.-1 cup chic broth
5:00 p.m.-1 can tuna w tsp lite mayo & onion
2 hardboiled eggs
7:00 p.m.-handful of peanuts
8:00 p.m.-lean ground turkey w/kidney beans and taco seasoning
Will have a protein shake before bed.
Sooo, according to Fit Tracker my cals are approx 1,667 today. Some of the things I put in I wasn't sure of the portion sizes so is a estimate. I am happy with that number. Although I overshot my protein grams. I had almost 200 grams of protein today!! Maybe I need to get rid of one of my protein shakes.
Also too much fat. I should not have had that handful of peanuts when I got home from work but I was starving!!!!
Well. it's been a loooong Monday and I am ready to curl up with a book. Hope you all had a great weekend!!
