Today started out great! I got to sleep in a bit, and then had time to make myself a great breakfast.
I had a breakfast sandwich of sorts inspired by one of my favourite little cafes.
Around midday I started telling myself that I needed to workout. I was dreading this. My workout routines have become just that - routine. It is so boring and typical. I decided I needed to amp up my workout, so I dusted off some dvds.
I have a series of dvds from Jillian Michaels.
There is an exercise plan at http://www.exercisetv.tv/wplans-details.aspx?id=2252 where you can download a PDF of an exercise schedule. I have chosen to do the 30 day slim down, and it looks quite intense.
I did level one of the 30 day Shred today - and it was tough, but i could get through it. When I was done, I guzzled down some protein powder mixed with almond milk.
I then made a quick lunch, because I was running short on time.
I had a green monster + almond cheese and crackers. It was no breakfast sandwich, but it did it's part. I also scrounged together break foods, but it didn't amount to much:
I was surprised at how tired I was at the beginning of work today. I chalked it up to working out at a more intense level - but that usually energizes me. It was the first time in a long time that I had almost a full day to myself before having to go into work for 4pm, so maybe that was it. Regardless, I was a zombie for the first part of that shift.
Tomorrow is my weigh in day (I weigh in once a week to see if any progress has been made). I feel like I self- sabotage myself, because the moment I got home tonight, I beelined for the open bag of chips. Sitting there eating them and watching the Hills Aftershow was a delight. I will probably regret those actions tomorrow though when I have to look at the scale. What sucks more so, is that I am only 1.0lbs away from a mini shopping spree to kitchen stuff plus. I am pretty adamant about my weight goals. Even if I lost 0.8 lbs this week, I would not consider that reaching my 15 lbs goal.
Tomorrow is another day off! I'm getting used to these!
