sorry for the delay in posting-i am so unorganized after a busy weekend! and busy weekends=not so healthy food choices. yep, i had a few slip-ups over the weekend but got right back on track come monday morning!
saturday was mike's birthday, and i bought him concerts tickets to kenny chesney and zac brown band up at lambeau field. we went with our friends lauryn and reed and had a great time!
me, mike and lauryn in front of lambeau field!
here was our fruit for the day: vodka infused strawberry.
this counts, right!?
i may or may not have had a few cocktails throughout the day.
needless to say-it definately was a day of indulgences. gotta have those every once in awhile!
on to monday-ugh! how i hate mondays! it was my coworkers birthday today so my supervisor bought us lunch from panera!
i got the strawberry poppyseed chicken salad and it was fantastic!
i didnt have much for groceries after a weekend away so i just rounded up what i could for paleo meals for the day then hit up the grocery store after my CrossFit workout last night. the workout last nite was thrusters-after a one mile run.
i learned quickly that this workout needed some focus. after my first attempt to lift 80 pounds over my head, i dropped it.
feeling discouraged. and extremely intimidated, i was having a hard time walking back up to that iron.
gave it a rest. shook it off. and walked back up there, and successfully lifted that weight over my head, maxing out at 95 pounds.
i have never done anything like this in my life, so for my first time, i'll take that! the support of the coaches and all of the crossfitter's is simply amazing! they are so encouraging and positive and make you believe you really can do anything if you put your mind to it!
today i woke up with enough time to make breakfast. looks pretty similar to other days!
unsweetened chocolate almond milk. a plum. and egg whites with onion, pepper, and spinach.
i used to eat a lot of oatmeal with peanut butter and banana for breakfast, but since grains are off limits, oatmeal is a no go! im trying to come up with new breakfast ideas...perhaps a steak would do?
morning snack was celery sticks with almond butter. yummm.
we get an hour for lunch, so when the weather is nice, i like to get outside and go for a half hour walk. its nice to clear my mind and get out of my CUBE! ahhh!
i was starving by the time i got back today:
i had a salad with peppers, onions, cucumbers, carrots, deli turkey, sunflower seeds and a vinagarette dressing. this sucker held me over all afternoon but my tummy was grumbling by the time i got home from work.
go ahead. laugh!
i got home, made guacamole, and started defrosting hamburger to make hamburger patties. i defrosted the burger too long and basically started cooking it in the microwave! so much for those patties :)
i just threw the burger in a pan with peppers, onion, mushrooms and some garlic.
still tasted pretty darn good! i had some romaine lettuce hiding under there too!
alright-i've got more catching up to do around the apartment and laundry to get done yet.
i best get to it and rested up for my long work day tomorrow!
