My day started at 3AM when I got up to shower (in order to wake myself up in the middle of the night!) & get to work at around 4AM to open the Y. I like getting up early like this one or two days a week, until mid-afternoon hits. The energy slump usually sets in majorly around that time!
I downed water until about 8AM, the time I normally eat breakfast…if I eat breakfast!
* LF String Cheese (YUM! – forgot how much I like this protein-packed snack)
* A Naner of perfect ripeness
Lunch ~ enjoyed with Sodie and my Nanny today…
Started with high fiber/low carb wrap.
Added to it:
* Laughing Cow Light Cheese Spread (1/2 wedge)
* Sweet Pickles
* Deli turkey breast
* Mixed greens
And I ended with this:
Healthy, filling LUNCH!
Also added a side of Carrots & LF Fiesta Ranch Dip
(recipe for dip under ‘Must Make Recipes’ …so easy)
Afternoon Snack before heading back to work:
* Handful of peanuts
Power-up Snack in 10 minute time span between Step & BodyPUMP tonight ~
Bite Size (trial size) 5:1 Protein Bar – Chocolate Covered Pretzel.
9 grams of Protein & ZERO Sugar (but some sugar alcohols) in this bite size little thing that tasted DELISH! I will be investing in more of them (got this one for FREE to try). It is a great thing to have on hand to get me through back to back classes with plenty of POWER!
Dinner (after two crazy up-beat group exercise classes) ~
End Result. Mmmm mmm mmm.
Used frozen broccoli & sprayed with Olive Oil. Added in fresh broccoli slaw, red pepper & onion. Sautéed. Added pre-grilled chicken that I thawed from the freezer.
Topped this good-looking mixture of veggies & chicken off with some FF Italian dressing & LF Parmesan. Hit the SPOT.
Frozen Blurps for dessert
Overall, my Wednesday went SUPER-Quick! How about yours? Are you keeping up with your GOALS you set for your Healthy Eating habits? I hope so!
Half-way to the weekend, so keep up the HARD work (and workouts!) The first three days are always the most challenging when trying to instill different eating habits. Day 3 = almost over! Whoop!
I will leave you with a little PINTEREST MI. I am unsure of whether or not it helps you out, but the PINTEREST findings definitely help me to keep the right mind set
I especially think about this when I am running. When I feel like stopping to walk, I always keep going for a least another half mile. Usually by that time the thought of stopping has left my mind & I just keep trucking along.
Can you say RIPPED? …just slightly
Sometimes I seem to have that muscle, & sometimes I don’t…it is a work in progress.
