Thursday & Friday last week, I had whole grains in the morning for breakfast, then no mas the rest of the day. I had plenty of veggies & lean protein with legumes. Thursday it was black beans and Friday I added lentils with lunch.
Still cutting down on the dairy & fruit. A banana in the morning with breakfast. And I'm good with that.
I've been rereading The Eat Clean Diet for some ideas. But I winged it today. Lunch was 4 oz of grilled chicken breast, 1/4 cup of lentils with grilled peppers and asparagus, and roasted brussel sprouts. Apparently I like brussell sprouts now. And cabbage too, for that matter.
This week, whole grains in the mornings for breakfast with eggs, then lunch and dinner will be grain free. Well, dinner is always grain-free for me anyway, (salad with chicken breast) has been for a long time now, so not much of a change there.
I'm thinking of adding a legume every other day with lunch. I like canelinini beans & black beans. I don't want to go too crazy, just a quarter cup with lunch every other day. Different veggies that I don't always have, like grape tomatoes. I reserve the right to change my mind about the legumes, tho. Still just thinking about it.
How does that sound to you, Ileana? :-)
I was going to go to yoga tonight, but since
God help me. I either leave that place cursing up a storm or frustrated to the point of wanting to punch something. Sometimes both.
Frustrated because I know I'm being pushed beyond what I can do, pushed beyond my limits, and pushed beyond what my body is capable of. Frustrated because sometimes I'd like to smack the trainer and tell him to leave me alone. Even though I know this shit is working, which only points out
Cursing because I'm already feeling sore as hell.
So mature, I know. Sucking it up tho. Results don't lie. And I can't either. So, I will be signing up for another month of this insanity. I want results more than I want to piss and moan about it. So I'm gonna suck it up & take it straight to goal weight.
Tonight was lots of upper body & core. Pushups, jabs, crosses, upper cuts, suspended delt flys, the ropes, pull ups on the Equalizer, planks, bicycle crunches & of course burpees.
If I could go back in time and kill the person that invented or thought up burpees, I would. That's justifiable homicide right there.
I was running late (what else is new), so I forgot to bring my HRM. Didn't matter, still worked my arse off. And I am already feeling the soreness in my shoulders.
Sweet cheebus. Uncertain I'll be able to feel my arms tomorrow.
On another note, since the Northeast hasn't had enough bad weather luck this year, yet another storm is predicted to hit our neck of the woods this week. Nobody seems to have a clue about it, so we may either get snow showers, rain, or 4-8 inches of the stuff.
Shrug. No use getting all worked up about since the weather can't be controlled, and Mother Nature is going to do whatever she wants to do. I have a feeling there will be gas lines & sheer panic in the grocery stores, as that's the new trend now in NY whenever a storm is set to hit. I did all the things yesterday & today, so I'm all set if a foot of snow decides to make its way here.
And with that, I am off to do food prep for tomorrow and hit the sack early.
