I made it to the 3rd day and after the time I had yesterday, I was nervous today would be a repeat of the “hunger games”…
But wait, I actually felt okay! Imagine that! I will run down my day of meals for you and tell you how I felt along the way. Meal #1 was another egg scramble but this time I chopped up the veggies for the eggs and it seemed to be MORE volume! Plus I added some water to the eggs and scrambled them up. Enjoyed them with my coffee with some almond milk (my small treat for today).
Next up was the Lower Body Fix workout from the program. Okay, how hard can it be when I do leg presses in the gym with 360lbs?
Answer: HARD!! Muscle overload instead of heavy lifting equals a whole new level of fitness for this chica who thought “she was too tough”. LOL We performed each move for one full minute and then a quick 20 second break before the next move. It is seriously intense and yet it is only 30 minutes.
I’m loving Autumn’s spicy attitude when some of the participants shout out a little smack talk. She runs over to them and starts to critique (in her ever so sweet-yet-intense way) and then picking up weights and challenging them alongside of her. I also enjoy her motivational tips along the way. “it’s just 21 days”; “you can do anything for 1 minute” and “focus on this move, this workout and this day”
After that I enjoyed my yummy Vanilla Shakeology!! I love it with my frozen bananas, water (cuz ain’t no wasting cals on almond milk in this plan!) and some ice…
I have to say that my energy levels were quite high today and I actually felt like I was super charged! Not sure why but it’s true. And I’m not complaining 😉
For lunch, I had a spinach and chicken salad with Bragg’s Aminos drizzled over and some herbal tea. Then an apple for snack.
Still with the good energy humming along and super busy day; dinner rolled around and I was HUNGRY again! Not “H-angry” like yesterday though 😉 LOL
We had roast beef with salad and a whole wheat roll. I tried so hard to “fit” the roll into my yellow container but alas, it wouldn’t conform; unless I were to smash it down and that would defeat me wanting to eat it! So, I chalked it up to Autumn’s tips of some foods just eating as they are. Breads should be “1 slice” and I counted this small roll as one. I also enjoyed some avocado on the roll…now you’re jealous of me, right??
I haven’t enjoyed my snack yet but I’m thinking of making up my “treats” either tonight or tomorrow. It may be easier to just grab a whole wheat wrap and get some peanut butter smeared on it! Then again…
