It was National Running Day yesterday...
& I didn't run.
I think that's the first time that happened in a few years. I actually was OK missing it. Mainly because I couldn't basically move my legs in a normal way after working out with the 21 Day fix Lower Fix...
OH MY GOSH...
I know my body needs to get some muscle - to tone up... I never realized how much my body cries when it gets pushed to new limits. But I did the full work out.
At one point, I literally started giggling like I was out of my mind because my butt kept cramping up when we had to do round 2 of an exercise. Laughter is better then crying right? ... who am I kidding, I may have shed a few tears while laughing.
So yeah, I'm on Day 3 of the 21 Day Fix. Still really no complaints.
& yesterday was exciting for me... I ATE OUT! Met Ricky for lunch, who said he wasn't sure I was coming because he didn't know how I was going to eat there. OK... if a change in lifestyle has me never able to eat out, I'll just give up on everything... I refuse to not be able to live life... its just making smart choices in every day situations - right? So I went to Subway. The easiest place to start, I think.
I just ordered a chopped salad - which you can tell every Subway employee rolls their eyes & hates when someone orders these. The extra bowl they have to clean up afterwards. I don't blame them.
|Every Subway employee ever making a salad|
But they know me from our Wednesday lunches & know I always get a veggie patty so the lady asked me, "Do you want a veggie patty on it?".... these people get me.
So I got it with a veggie patty, tomato, cucumbers & peppers. She asked me like 5 times, "You really don't want cheese?"... I do... but no.
& I asked for half spinach & she didn't hear me & didn't do it. Dang it. Next time I'll be louder about it.
I forgot to bring my own vinaigrette from home & got theirs, but literally just a drizzle ... & I ended up getting apples, which in hindsight, I wish I would have put ON the salad... but for my first time eating out, I think it was a success.
But here's more what my day looked like for Day 3
Breakfast - another egg wrap with spinach
Snack 1 - My mom taught me this trick when she was on Weight Watchers. Take cottage cheese, put cinnamon on it (Free food) & one pack of Stevia (Free food)... its like a dessert. YUMMM!!!!!!
Lunch - Subway
|& I didn't eat all of the lettuc|
Snack 2 - Vegan Strawberry Shakeology. I will say, the strawberry is MUCH MUCH better then the chocolate vegan. I'm so glad I have these sample packs so I can see which one I like.
Dinner - left overs from last night. I was going to make dinner but Ricky literally ate a WHOLE CARTON of ice cream sitting in traffic on the way home. Needless to say, he was sick to his stomach & didn't want dinner so I just used everything from the day before - sweet potato, a veggie patty & broccoli/cauliflower. Better the second time around. I had my blue container left for the day so used it for feta cheese & put on my veggie burger & veggies. YES!
Snack 3 - grapes
Another day full of great healthy food... & another day spot on in the nutrition.
It's so exciting to me to see the end day results now.
Pressing On to Day 4
