I made teriyaki veggie stir fry with Soba noodles and quick cooking couscous, which I made with a little Adobo and veggie stock. I added broccoli and cauliflower to the cous cous, and Trader Joe's grilled lemon pepper chicken went into both.
But before all that, I got in a killer workout. I focused primarily on strength. I started with 24 minutes on the inclined treadmill, then I did The Firm Bootcamp 3-in-1 Part 2. I added 20 extra minutes of heavy strength. More lat rows, dead lifts (Dale calls them "good mornings" in this DVD, I've never heard dead lifts called that before), dips, French press, pec flies, ribcage pullovers, bench press, side lunges, plie squats, clean and press, regular squats, upright rows, and hammer curls. I also knocked out 50 regular crunches. I be neglecting my core way too much. I was a sweaty, hot mess afterwards. Burned 633 calories.
A few weeks ago, I had bought myself a pair of awesome black boots from DSW and skinny jeans from Old Navy. Because of my phone issues, I haven't had an opportunity to post it, til now.
Ok - I promise to get a way better pic this weekend, like in the fitting room of a store, where the lighting is always bright.
The jeans are a size 10 and tight. I think in the next few weeks they'll be fitting me the way they are supposed to. You know, not skin tight like they are now.
Solid day in the books. Tracked everything, got in the requirements, and went over my points by 4. I'm ok with that. I made 2 beef sliders with just a little salt & pepper at lunch with steamed broccoli and oven baked sweet potato "fries" which accounted for the over allowance. Nothing outrageous, just high Points. I normally don't crave beef nor do I eat it a lot, it was just something I wanted. And I had them on hand. All good. Not quite the same as pizza or fried chicken. ;-)
I can't tell you how great it felt to wake up this morning and NOT feel like I needed to work extra hard because of poor weekend food decisions. The scale was the same as yesterday. :-)
I am DVRing the RHONJ reunion. No way I'm missing that - looks pretty explosive from the previews. #TeamMelissa all the way.
Sunday night football, blog stalking & RHONJ, then early to bed.
