Yesterday was kinda rough. I wanted sugar something terrible. Something sweet just to taste. I didn’t give in though. I wanted a diet coke pretty hard too. Now Day 4 is here and I dare say it will get any easier. Day 3 was full of good food though.
I made a smoothie for breakfast that was loaded with spinach, about 5 slices of frozen banana, almond butter, almond milk, cinnamon (which is a great addition that keeps your blood sugar under control), and a lil honey for sweetness.
Lunch I had tuna with cucumber and carrots. Who needs crackers when you have cucumber slices with a lil salt and pepper on them (it really makes a difference!!!).
Dinner was epic though. I had a new friend come over and wracked my brain for about 4 days as to what I was going to make for sides. I made lamb shoulder chops with a balsamic reduction, mashed sweet potatoes with cinnamon and nutmeg, and green beans with garlic. Everyone loved it!
My workout session was pretty epic too. What we call an energy circuit. I tell ya, you will sweat more than you think you can when you’re done with a 20 min energy circuit. Today it is FAR too cold to do my Thursday run and yoga. So I am going to do some yoga and taebo. I love Taebo. It is a lot of fun and is my fall back when it is raining or dumb cold outside, I highly recommend it.
Have a great day people. I have to do some work in the office this afternoon and I have to say I’m looking forward to it!
