OH THE HUMANITY!!

Let me say it again....

OH THE HUMANITY!

If I had any doubts (and I didnt) that yesterdays workout on week 2 of Ripped in 30 was any good, this morning proved that it was.

I am sore from my neck down to my ankles. My back, my biceps, triceps, abs, quads, hamstrings..everything HURTS!

And yet...I still went back for more this morning.

And I was DRIPPING with sweat.

Down my legs...

My arms....

My back....



I guess that just shows that I am in it for the long haul huh?

Lots of people if they woke up this sore would say "oh I am going to take a rest day". But not me.

Guess I am glutton for punishment.

Or maybe I am glutton for change.

Either way, I think it is a good thing.

Yesterday I stayed on plan with my eating. I was very impressed with myself.

My mother in law texted me to say she was going to make a cake so I didnt have to. But I still went and picked up lean ground turkey and Kopplingers hamburger buns. The Kopplingers are the cleanest I can find on the market.

So last night for dinner I ended up having 1 big lean turkey burger on my bun with onion, light mayo, ketchup and lettuce. I also had garlic hummus with fresh veggies (carrots, celery and cherry tomatoes), and some cottage cheese. I didnt even put cheese on my burger. Nor did I have baked beans and hot dogs. Nor did I have cake and ice cream. Seriously. AND the cake was the Funfetti kind. I LOVE that kind!

I did have one beer though. And I said no to a second one.

Baby steps.


I never did get to exercise that afternoon when the boys went down for nap. My Pampered Chef orders came in from my party and I had 5 boxes to sort thru. So I did that instead so I could drop off orders.

So I was very pleasantly surprised when the scale said 175.0 at me today.

Yes. Yes it was a very good day.

And I think that is part of what drove me this morning to come back to Jillian.

This morning for breakfast I did something a bit different.

I had be drinking a protein smoothie every morning and yesterday I ran out.

Dang it!

And of course my spinach was yucky that I had in the fridge.

SOOOOOO...

I blended some almond milk, frozen strawberries, quick oats, natural peanut butter and a banana up.

Tasty!

You really cant taste the peanut butter at all. I added it really for the protein.

Anyways...something you might want to try...

We all know what today is.

Friday.

My favorite day of the week.

Not just because it signals the end of the week and the upcoming weekend. Really...do I care? I dont work. I stay at home with the kids...

Naw.

It signals my night out with my girlfriends.

Though this week we will be sparse. I think it will be just K and I. Which will still be MOST excellent.

I will let you all know what the scale says tomorrow.

Have a great weekend everyone!!
