Well, last night ended terribly. I committed a crime, a very bad crime. I weighed myself at the end of the day- at the end of a holiday weekend. The verdict? You don’t want to know. Ugh, I was so mad at myself. Hated myself even.
You’d think after 25 years I’d have learned to enjoy food and fitness in balance. But every once in a while- it takes a mean turn and I cry myself to sleep over a stupid number on a stupid scale.
After a huge sobfest and a good nights sleep, I started today with a clean slate. Breakfast was a bowl of oats w/honey, almond milk, almond butter, raisins and toasted coconut.
Today’s workout included a 3 mile run- the first ever since moving to 3500 ft altitude. I think I did pretty good
Sub-10 min miles. I’ll take it, thankya. And the route I took was hilly. Another high five for me.
I listened to a new playlist for my run- it’s a weird mix of genres and old/new stuff, but it hit the spot for a run today!
Oh, and Nicki Minaj’s new CD? Fantastic. She does a lot of the rap that she’s known for, but here and there she actually sings and she has a great voice. And great lyrics. And great featuring artists. Most of the songs talk about b*tches and d*ck, though. Hell, one song’s even titled Come on A Cone. For serious. But I really like the music- I’ll just have to watch my potty mouth for a bit 😉
My heart was a-thumpin’ by the time I got home. Theeeen, I did a quick at home circuit that consisted of
Squats with alternating front kicks
Side lunges with high knee
Side plank dips
15 minutes of those moves, and I broke my second sweat of the day. Very pleased with my workout on day 1 of post-scale horror.
Lunch was a smoothie with an interesting list of ingredients.
It included: 1 frozen banana, 2 handfuls spinach, orange juice, frozen raspberries, Oikos Greek yogurt, and 2 medjool dates. Totally delicious.
Dinner was quickly and easy- another round of healthy chicken tenders with broccoli and spinach citrus couscous.
I finally got around to trying out another way to get hard cooked eggs. Rather than boiling them, I baked them!
In the oven they went at 325 for 30 minutes, then I plunged them in ice water to stop them from cooking. They actually turned out! I’ll be eating them over the next few days! Yum.
