Well, I caved. It wasn’t even with something I’ve been craving like caramel popcorn, pizza, or ice cream. It was stupid doritos, just sitting in the pantry. I don’t know, but week 3 has not been that great, and today I was feeling so blah and tired of making all these separate meals. Dinner time came, it’s hot, and the last thing I wanted to do was make the Asian Chicken Soup I had planned. I am losing my motivation. The exciting honeymoon phase of the challenge has ended for me. I do know this has been a good thing for me. I have definitely lost weight and that is why I am continuing to finish out the 30 days despite tonight’s fall.
Week 3 is supposed to be week of “Tiger Blood”??? I think I had that last week. This week is a struggle and I’m finding it difficult to be motivated for anything….except exercise. At least I have that and every time I kick boxed (with some circuit training workouts!) this week I felt a whole lot better afterwards. It didn’t stick with me the rest of the day though. Maybe I can just chalk it up to just a bad week and leave it at that. I have an early morning run with team mates tomorrow that I’m looking forward too. Maybe it will kick me back into gear.
I don’t really feel like writing, so here’s a brief run down of food from Days 18 and 19. Day 18 yesterday I finished up the frittata muffins for breakfast. Lunch was leftover chocolate chili over baby spring mix/spinach and olives. Dinner was a yummy roasted chicken.
Today, Day 19, I didn’t really have a breakfast or meal 1. I only had my pre-workout banana and almond butter. After that I didn’t eat until lunch which was leftover roasted chicken, a bit of chocolate chili, and baby spring mix/spinach. Dinner….doritos. WTG!
