No pain, no gain has been my mantra today. I woke up sore and I am going to bed even sorer.
I woke up and stretched to loosen up the tender muscles and then did my LBD exercises 25 bridges, 30 squats, and 30 lunges. OUCH, but I persevered.
I walked out to the kitchen and found this little girl eating a banana.
She said, “I’m hungry cause I didn’t eat my dinner.” The things that kids come up with amazes me.
I made a bagel and a clementine for breakfast. AND I am excited to announce that we got Tim’s car back tonight so hopefully I won’t have to get so early for awhile.
After taking Tim to work we came home for a bit and I did laundry and made a list for the grocery store. Next I headed out to the gym for a 30 minute walk, a total distance of 1.6 miles and I burned 225 calories. I didn’t realize how sore my core was until I started walking today. I am so thankful tomorrow is a rest day.
After the workout I was starving and we still had to do grocery shopping. I finally gave in and satisfied my craving for McDonalds fries and a spicy McChicken. I got just one (instead of two) and a small fry (instead of a large). I also went ahead and treated myself to my first caffeinated beverage in about 60 days. I got an unsweet tea and sweetened it with splenda. It was worth it. I still drank all my water today too though.
I ate while I shopped for our groceries for the next week. Then this afternoon I cleaned out my car – it is amazing how dirty they get in just a couple weeks.
For dinner Tim grilled pork chops and I made roasted brussel sprouts and carrots with a berry blend salad.
Only 311 calories for all!
After dinner I summoned just a little bit more strength to go through the LBD exercises one more time. Feel the burn; once again thinking no pain, no gain. I also realized I meant to take a before picture in a black dress and forgot so I will just take one at the end.
5 hours after dinner I was hungry again. Tim went on a Taco Bell run (again) I have got to re-eliminate this “4th” meal behavior. I think it will be easier when I am not up from 6 am – midnight. This adds an additional 400 calories to my day.
Total Calories 1461 – calories from workout 225 = total calories 1236
