Well, today was an interesting day for us. From 9am to 1pm, we were in a power outage, so I took the kids out today. We didn’t get back til about 4 so that means that my fix took an interesting turn. Yes, it’s only day 3, but even for just 2 days, I have kept very faithful to my diet and workout routine. I usually eat my breakfast then do my workout and have my shakeology all before 11, and that sets me for the rest of my day. But today was a different story. I started out with a banana and my shakeology drink this morning and left the house before 9. I was bound and determined to NOT go through a drive thru. It’s true that our world has evolved concerning some food choices you get through fast food places, but there still is the temptation of eating just that one french fry. I succeeded! We did, however, go to Chili’s. The menu is little more forgiving when it comes to yummy food choices. I tried to choose as wisely as I could to what sounded good to my taste buds. This is the part where I learned why portion control is so so so important. Now don’t think that I over ate. I didn’t do that at all, but even after 2 days of complete portion control, my little less than normal was almost too much. I say little less b/c usually when I go out, an appetizer is involved along with my meal even if I don’t finish all of either. I had the California grilled chicken flat bread with avocado and pica de gallo. The indulgence here? The cheese. Everything was in portion except for the cheese, and my body still feels full from todays lunch. I wasn’t miserable by no means, but I could feel what portion control was doing for my body more than I thought I would. I will say, that is something that I could make. It was delicious, and I didn’t have that “Oh my gosh I shouldn’t have eaten that” feeling I would have had if I still ate burgers and fries.
We went to the mall and as we were walking, I can feel every muscle in body screaming at me! I’ve got to keep pushing. I got more comfy and workout clothes. That’s always fun b/c that’s about all I wear since I don’t go anywhere fancy anyway. I’d much rather be comfortable.
I got more items from the it’s ok to eat this list. That includes ingredients to make the treats that are in the meal plan book. My sweet tooth just about got the best of me last night. I love my pb m&ms and I really wanted some last night, but I refrained. I was then determined to make myself some treats. Target didn’t have all the ingredient that I wanted but I did find this little gem while in the “big city”. I’m gonna have to make another trip there again before leave Kansas. I went in and it smelled like Trader Joe’s, and that is one thing that I miss about California. The kids were getting a little restless so I didn’t get to look around. That made me a little sad but oh well.
The first thing I did when I got home was do my workout. Oh my goodness! It was so hard. My legs were already screaming from yesterdays workout. Side note…I did not the wrong workout. Dirty 30 wasn’t supposed to be until I think Saturday. I was supposed to do the Upper Fix yesterday so I will be switching that around. Anyway. I can’t hardly walk now, but I’m still going to my 10 minute abs. My abs hurt when I sneeze, but it won’t be like that forever. Right? RIGHT? I sure hope not. I’m not gaining muscle yet, but I guess I shouldn’t expect a miracle over night. I am happy to say that my splurge didn’t make me gain any weight. I don’t want to lose anymore weight though. I don’t really know what to do about that. An extra shake maybe? I don’t know. Until tomorrow!
