I forgot to ask Tony to take a full body picture of my yesterday, so my mirror had to stand in. Not sure if they will accept my mirror picture, because you can’t really see my face! At the end of Round 1, I was 167.6, for a loss of 8.2 for the month of June.
This time? I am up .6 – but I am happy with that. I went on vacation where I only worked out three times and my eats weren’t exactly stellar – but I had a great time!
I am going to repost a full length picture tomorrow – we’ll see if they accept that one!
So excited that Sheryl C. and Kris T. are in the game! The pot is now up to $575, with 23 players. The official game begins July 13 – I am actually loving this summer challenge, who knew?!
The attorney we had the shower for brought in bagels yesterday as a thank you. I knew she was bringing them in so I brought in egg whites, ham and low fat Swiss Lorraine to make a half bagel sammie. With my 24 ounces of iced cranberry apple tea – I am really getting addicted to that tea!
It was a gorgeous day, so I knew I would swim outside.
I do the breast stroke (or at least my version of it!) pretty much the whole time. I am not that great of a swimmer, but I feel like I am “moving as fast as I can” so it counts. I like swimming outside because there is a lot of people watching. I watched a grandson and his grandpa follow each other around different areas of the pool – the grandson would do something and the grandpa would follow – so cute!
Until the grandson dove off the diving board. Grandpa wanted to do it too, and as my head was under the water, I see grandpa dive under the water, only to lose his swim trunks and I saw his bare naked ass. Luckily, his shorts caught on his ankles and he was able to bring them up before his head came out of the water. I am confident he didn’t know I saw anything! (and grateful that I only saw his butt!).
I meant to add more veggies to Tony’s leftover fried rice for lunch, but forgot, so for $3 bucks I accessorized and got some Szechuan green beans from the Chinese place across from my office. It’s a generous serving – it was enough for both me and my boss for lunch, I had some with dinner and I still have a serving leftover!
I snacked on watermelon in the afternoon. Even though its high in natural sugar, I’ve deemed this fruit insulin worthy!
I’ve decided on the days that I work out twice – my goal is to have a calorie intake of 1800-2000 calories. On the days I only do Insanity, it will be 1500-1700 and on rest days 1500. I had a Nature Valley salted protein bar later too – not photographed but it’s my favorite protein bar to date. You can buy them at Walmart.
I defrosted some “mystery meat” from the freezer – some leftover meat that Tony bought and never used when I was on vacation. Once I came home and saw crushed red pepper flakes, I was worried it would be too spicy for him, and it was. I am usually the one that buys the spicy shit – but he did by accident. I had more leftover green beans and rice on the side. And somehow sriracha got on my green beans!
So last night was Month 2 – Day 5 of Insanity – Max Interval Circuit – 59 minutes long! It wasn’t until we started going that I realized it was the same workout I did on Saturday.
I was realizing that Insanity is like running to me. The first 10-15 minutes suck. I want to stop. It’s hard. I have all these doubts going through my head telling me that it’s okay to give up. But then, I am warmed up and ready to go! I’ve told myself that if I am taking this hour of time away from spending time with Tony each night, I have to make it count.
Here are some up close, untouched photos of me after my workout – you can really see my red face and sweat! Oh, and your welcome.
And it’s become evident that I need to get my eyebrows threaded soon and to buy some more whitening toothpaste.
Someone at work even mentioned that my arms are more toned – welcome to my gun show! (Ally, that one was for you!)
I have a ways to go, but I like seeing progress. I am only on day 40 of my new healthy journey – can’t wait to see what I look like on day 100!
My after workout snack was 1 apple and 2 tablespoons of reduced fat peanut butter – best snack ever.
Stats for the Day:
- 1834 calories, 75 fat, 201 carbs, 28 fiber (nice!) 91 protein
- 44% calories from fat, 37% from fat and 19% from protein
- 30 minute swim at lunch (seeing a naked grandpa ass)
- 59 minute M2-D5 of Insanity – Max Interval Circuit
Okay, I am not sure how this is going to turn out, but I have leftover spinach/strawberry/almond/goat cheese salad from our luncheon. I am going to make a smoothie with it – the only weird ingredient is the goat cheese, but I think the fruit will over power it. Could taste like ass or be awesome! You’ll have to come back tomorrow to find out.
Make it a great day!
