Well today got off to a good start! Work up super early and got my 22 minute cardio work out done followed by a 22 ab workout. And since I still had some time before I needed to get ready I did part of Jillian Micheals Shred it with Weights. My lets were not happy with me, my abs were protesting and sweat was dripping off my face. Then a strange thing happened...I got ready for work and I wasn't nearly as sore as I was when I woke up. Bonus-the scale said I lost 2 lbs! Ohh I'm sure one was from all the sweat.
On sadder news-my uncle in law passed away. You know how relatives seem old and then you realize they aren't that old. That's me with him. I know him from family get together but we never like hung out and chatted. And then it hit me-I will never see him sitting at the table with a beer laughing at my kids and his grand kids.
Back to the diet plan. Here was my day:
Workout: 22 min cardio, 22 min core, 2 rounds of Shred it with Weights
Breakfast: 2 eggs, peppers, mushrooms and celery and a little cheese
Snack: Tiger chai latte with water (no clue what that was but it was good)
Lunch: Tuna in pouch
Snack: Superfood shake
Dinner: Beef enchilada soup. I did something wrong because it didn't taste as good as usual but it was still edible.
That is 3 Reds, 1 Blue, 2 Green, --and 1 shortbread girl scout cookie. yum!
So...maybe you wondering why I have no purple or yellow containers listed. Well, years ago I lost weight on Atkins. I don't follow it completely now as the superfoods is 16-18 carbs by itself but I do still try to stay lower carb. I tried doing Keto which is low carbs and high fat but that was really had to maintain. My goal now is to eat per the containers with veggies and healthy fats etc staying away from heavy carbs that are yellow containers. Ohh and purple is fruits. I love fruit. I'd love to put in my superfoods (AKA shakeology). But I have boys. They consume fruit like water. I order freeze dried fruit and its gone in a day with them. Its ok, I'd prefer they do that then eat my hidden stash of chocolate.
