First I’ll start with a pic of something other than food and much more adorable. She’s my shadow ~ Teddie
The first weekend challenge is over and a success! Saturday morning started with a 7:30 run training session at the park. It included run/walk intervals and suicides. It was a great and beautiful morning to be up and out early. I felt great afterwards. From there I went right to 9am kick boxing and felt completely energized and strong. It was a kick ass class.
What I am super proud of is the fact that I didn’t even touch the take out Chinese from Jasmine’s Saturday night! It’s what the guys wanted and I stayed away. I ate my dinner while the order was getting picked up, then went in another room while they ate. I did miss my crafty beer Saturday night, but it was worth not having any. Thank goodness Mike only brought home Miller Light so there was no temptation for me 🙂
Sunday I was up way too early. The one day I can sleep in and the body just didn’t want to. So I was up at 6, listened to music and perused through Whole 30 recipes online. I spent a long time planning out the coming week’s meals for me and the family. Makes for a very long grocery list…..This evening I met up with the team for the Torch Run and did an awesome 1 hour tabata workout. I am so sore, but so glad i went!! I may not be able to workout until next Monday, so the weekend was very successful.
Food wise it was a pretty boring weekend….lots of leftovers so I will spare the repeat pictures except for a few. I do like that I can make a recipe and then continue to use it for other meals. saves time in the end!
I’d also like to point out that after being 6 days in on the challenge, I broke through my plateau. that’s all I really wanted. It’s done! This makes me excited to finish out the 30 days to see what else happens.
Day 6 food ~
Pre-Workout: small banana and heaping tablespoon of almond butter
Breakfast: Fried organic brown egg over sauteed spinach, pulled pork, and pineapple
Lunch: I was still too full from breakfast so had a hand full of sliced raw almonds around 3pm
Dinner: More leftovers of pulled pork and breakfast casserole with some wilted spinach
Day 7 ~
Breakfast: A 2 organic brown egg chorizo sausage and spinach scramble and pineapple ~ incredibly satisfying!
Lunch: Wasn’t too hungry at all so just had a little more pulled pork and some pineapple. Ok, done with the pork!
Dinner (post-workout): Sauteed lemon and garlic shrimp, sauteed baby kale, and cut up grilled portabella mushroom….delish!
So yay! If I can do this, anyone can….for real.
