Happy Friday! I about had a nervous breakdown yesterday and summer hasn’t even started. Uh-oh… I can’t even describe my running around chauffeuring day. I haven’t been in a bad mood like that…ever really. I like to think I’m usually a calm and happy person 🙂 I’m going to make the bus schedule clear to my kids this summer. I will be leaving the house at 10 if they want to go anywhere and having two other pick up times during the day. That’s it! Last day of school today. I love summer. It will be great!!
So, my happy news of the day! I weighed 130.6. I was a little shocked and jumped on the scale 4 times or so to make sure it was right. I’ll take it! I have been sugar free for 10 days and I’ve lost 7 pounds. I still have 7 1/2 weeks to go too! It’s been fine. Every once in awhile at the grocery store or something I see taffy or hot tamales or chocolate or cookies…and I want them, but the thought quickly leaves my head. I was starving the other day at a baseball game and I grabbed a bag of carrots to curb my appetite until dinner. Here are a few things I’m doing. Yes, I exercise a ton, but it’s really about the FOOD!!! Here is what I’ve been eating:
BREAKFAST-banana, protein powder, peanut butter, and spinach smoothie
LUNCH-turkey sandwich with tons of veges and an EMERGE drink.
SNACKS-handful of cashews, Zone bar, and an apple
DINNER-salads with chicken, salmon, or tofu. Lots of veges and black beans.
I went out to eat once and ordered soup and salad. One night I wasn’t too hungry and I made a batch of coconut chia seed protein pancakes. Courtesy of my SISTER!! I drink lots of water and mostly stop eating by 7:30. Eating healthy actually works!
As for exercise, today we did a 9 1/2 mile run. All of us were feeling a little sluggish this morning. Long week I guess. I was draggin’ a little, but at one point a rush of adrenaline came over me and I picked it up!! Here is my exercise for the week (this includes tomorrow).
Weekly Running Mileage-25 miles
Weights-1 lower body workout, 2 upper body workouts, and a couple mini WOD’s.
Classes-Body Combat twice
I don’t have time for any fancy pictures today. Let me check my pinterest page for a motivational quote and I did find a cute bootie short for me!
