I swear, weekends always just seem to fly by. They go way too quick. No me gusta.
I woke up this morning with an unexplainable, exuberant amount of energy. I was up and doing laundry by 8AM. 2 loads done, folded and put away.
While the clothes were drying, I wiped down the counters, cleaned my stovetop, and scrubbed my bathroom.
No pharmaceuticals were consumed or laced in with my coffee. Certainly no *pizza was bought, obsessed over, fawned over, stared at, and then miraculously forgotten as it got cold in the fridge. Bad Kelly. Very, very bad.
Simple thing to learn from that. If you don't buy it, you can't eat it. Think about it, draw your own conclusions.
I was icky and sweaty from all the cleaning, so after a quick shower, it was time for breakfast to feed my stomachs. 1 egg, 2 egg whites, 2 slices of Ezekiel cinnamon raisin bread with WW cream cheese, a chicken sausage link, and Fage 2% yogurt that I flavored with honey, cinnamon and a teaspoon of vanilla.
Before lunch, I dusted and vacuumed my bedroom and living room, then got some more eats in: brown rice, broccoli, and Jack Daniels pulled BBQ chicken breast. It was my first time ever trying the Jack Daniels chicken. Not bad, I have to say. But not something I'll be buying on a regular basis. It's quick and convenient, but it is always better to prepare and cook your own meals.
Snack was my green monster smoothie. Dinner was a Jennie-O turkey burger with baked kale chips with olive oil.
Tons of agua was drunk throughout the day.
I wanted to pamper myself so I went to the nail place and got my nails & toes did. Then it was off to BJ's (hehe) to get some supplies: 2 huge bags of baby spinach, chicken burgers, chicken breasts, milk, frozen strawberries, carton of 18 eggs, and cooking spray.
Jewlz asked me what I've done specifically to up my calories. Basically, by intaking extra lean protein with every meal. I've also added a post-workout recovery snack, which I had NOT been doing at all after my workouts. I took a rest day today, so I didn't have one. Tomorrow after Bootcamp, I'll take an ounce or two of left over roast beef with me to eat the second the class is over. Maybe a part skim cheese stick as well. Or it'll be a slice of Ezekiel bread with a Tbsp of Trader Joe's natural crunchy peanut butter and strawberry preserves and 2 ounces of lean chicken breast. Lots of water to go with recovery snack as well.
More protein and recovery fuel. 2 simple changes. Viola.
By the way, I've really been feeling those boxing moves in my back and in my sides all day from yesterday. Lawdy, that workout was no joke.
I don't love Bootcamp. It's growing on me. I doubt I'll come to love it the way I love Bikram, but that may change in the next 3 weeks. It may not.
Holy sweet Jesus. Walking Dead was the bomb diggity tonight. Didn't see that shit coming. I won't spoil it, but if you've haven't seen it yet - DAMN!
Daryl makes white trash redneck look all sorts of sexy. The cross bow helps.
Seriously, where did this weekend go???
