Today is day three of my eating right. Here’s a synopsis of feelings and workouts…
Man…Monday was killer. And I mean killer. Trying to not snack…making a healthy choice at lunch (Jimmy Johns Unwich with lots of veggies…and no chips). I did make it the entire day without snacking (unhealthy) and then ended it with CrossFit.
CrossFit was a massive fail on Monday. I couldn’t do a squat right, I couldn’t do a lunge right…I was just off. The whole time. A workout that was about half as hard as I’ve done there in the past completely kicked my butt. It was terribly discouraging. I was angry with myself afterwards and I’m still a little irked at myself to be honest with you!
Tuesday…better. Much better. I still stuck to my healthy eating plan and said no to potentially unhealthy lunch plans (since I brought my own healthy lunch!!). Tuesday, food-wise, went a lot better than Monday. I didn’t struggle quite as much and it was a lot easier in the evening to eat right. I’m sure a lot of that had to do with the fact that I purged my pantry and fridge of virtually everything that I shouldn’t be eating. 2 1/2 trash bags worth, in fact. Most of it was donated to some very hungry teenage boys, but some of it was just tossed.
And that brings us to … today. Breakfast went well…2 boiled eggs, 1/2 c carrots, 1/2 avocado ($0.77 at Sprouts right now BTW). I was running late this morning and forgot to grab something for lunch. Kenny & I met Mike up at Chipotle and I made as good of a choice as I could there (steak “bowl” but it just had steak, grilled onions & peppers, corn salsa, pico, easy sour cream, easy cheese, lettuce; tea) and I didn’t really eat all of it…about 3/4. CrossFit went MUCH better today. Workout was to complete 4 of 6 workouts: Lap around the building in less than 1:30, 12 push ups, 50 squats, 250 m row in less than 1:20, 15 box jumps 19″ in less than 1:00, 20 sit-ups in less than a minute. I did all of them except for the squats. Lap: 1:29:06 (Hey, it was close but I made it!), push ups, Row: 54 sec, box jumps: 56 sec, sit ups: 44 sec. The hardest thing for me were the box jumps. I’m slightly scared of falling flat on my face but at the same time, I wanted to finish the damn things. I was sure I wasn’t going to make it (and I’m not completely sure that David’s watch isn’t a little slow! LOL) but I did…with 4 seconds to spare. 🙂 I was so proud of myself. I finished 5 of the 6 and probably could have done the squats if I had about 10 more minutes.
And the food details…
Monday for dinner I had roast that Leighton made. I know its not the healthiest thing in the world but I did remove as much fat as I could and cooked it without all the fatty stuff. I had some raw zucchini and a clementine with it.
Tuesday for dinner I ran to Sprouts and got some of the lemon pepper chicken kabobs and cooked those up on the grill. Then I made sautéed brussels sprouts and baked zucchini with evoo and oregano. It was great…loved it.
Today for dinner I made an as-healthy-as-I-can-make-it enchilada casserole. I browned 97% lean ground beef and then rinsed with water (I know, sounds gross…but it gets rid of excess fat), then I sautéed onions, added 1 can of tomato sauce and 1/2 c water. I added the beef back in and let the sauce thicken. I then grabbed a bowl and put a layer of the mixture, some low-fat cheese on top then a corn tortilla on top (just found these AMAZING ones at Tom Thumb that look like they were made 5 minutes ago!! sooooo goood) and repeat that until you run out of mixture (3-4 times). Then cover and put in the microwave for 2 minutes. Topped with Rotel and fat free sour cream and serve. Yummy!! Had a clementine too. 🙂
We talked about breakfast ideas and got a new great idea I made tonight and will try in the morning!! 🙂 Omelets made in baggies boiled in water. I know it sounds nuts…but its great!! If anyone wants the recipe, just ask and I’ll share!! I’ve posted a couple of pics on Facebook. 🙂
I also need to put a note in here about my amazing husband. He’s been doing CrossFit for 3 weeks now and he is doing awesome!! He’s also turned a complete 180 with his eating. It is going to be so much easier since we are both in it together!! I just love him to pieces. Vegas, here we come!! Hotter and healthier!! 10.10.10
