& I know I'm not supposed to, but this morning, I stepped on the scale... & LOST some weight. I don't want to say what it was because I want to save it to the end, but I was encouraged.
Especially because I did Day 17 differently.
Breakfast - the same. I think I'll probably eat 2 eggs with peppers on a wheat tortilla forever. Mainly because it seriously holds me over for 4 hours. I like that.
The snack was normal - apple & PB
& Wednesday is my lunch date with the hubs at Subway. I have been getting a salad but am finding that the past 2 weeks, it still leaves me hungry. Not to mention, like I've talked before, I feel like I'm putting the people out. Lunch hour in downtown ain't no time to slow the Subway people down. I got in there & there were about 4 people behind me so I went ahead & got my veggie patty on Honey Oat bread.
I don't think its a total no-no to do bread, it just takes up most of your 'yellow' container for the day. I was willing to mark it off for the day.
I will say I was proud of myself for not having chips with my sandwich - a first... & I actually had carrots at work to snack on the rest of the day to fill up on.
I got home & had a protein shake & then it was time to work out...
It was Lower Body Fix.
I literally was like a teenage girl...
My legs have not been right since I started this thing. Call them weak. Call them wusses. Whatever.
But I decided I wasn't going to do it. I have been feeling defeated & I don't like that feeling.
So I popped in my Les Mills Combat work out. I still consider it a lower body workout - I mean, one point, it does 234 kicks consecutively. That's a leg workout. Believe me. My legs get lower with each kick & I have to fight hard to get them back up. Yep - a leg workout indeed.
Then dinner, the hubs had stopped & picked him up some chicken ... vegetarian spouse problems... so I had the chance to just make something for me. I didn't want to cook so I found this at the grocery this past weekend & was excited to try it.
OH MY GOSH - it was delicious.
Now, I'm not sure this is 100% on the meal plan, but it had all good stuff - except for the sauce. BUT, it wasn't like it was dripping. It just made it moist.
& I hate I just used that word. Moist. Ew.
(For those on 21 day fix - I counted it as 2 reds (lentils & beans are red for vegeterians) 1 green & because of the sauce, I counted 3 tsp.... this is just my guestimate)
Anyways. I want to buy this for every day now.
I think they have like 4 different versions - I have one that has quinoa in it with spinach. I'm excited to try it now.
Then I ended the night watching American Ninja Warrior... these people are AMAZING! I am in awe of people that can hang by their finger tips. I'd do good to walk across the course on a flat board. I'd probably still fall over in the water.
So, today, nearing even closer to the end of Round 1... & always, Pressing On!!!
