I'm looking forward to eating healthy grains, dairy, and meat!!!!!
Last week I was on business travel...It's definitely alot more work to fast on the road! So, I tried to plan my meals ahead and pack some snacks. Unfortunately, I forgot my protein powder to add to smoothies :( But, I found chili's had a great chicken carribean salad (minus the chicken) with mandarin oranges, cranberries, pineapple, peppers, and a honey lime dressing. Yummy! I also passed by an Orange Julius near my hotel...and learned they had diary free smoothie. So good!
I was very hungry on Wednesday and Saturday so I ate until I was full - over my calorie allotment but satisfied. I think that was do to not having enough protein options...
I made it a point to workout while on the road...I squeezed in a morning session the day I got on the road, tried out two Zumba classes the next day (I love experiencing other classes then mine), and made it a point to work out the day I got back...tired as I was.
I was ecstatic to see a loss when I returned, Friday! 139.4 lbs. I'm on my way...Just 2 and half pounds to the top of my healthy, happy weight range!
I bumped up my exercise to about 1 and 1/2 to 2 hours a day about 5 to 6 days a week...not including my physical therapy sessions. I'm feeling good...So, I think I'll keep that at least for the next 6 to 8 weeks.
Yesterday, I ran the Groundhog Run 5k. I wasn't training for it but a girl at my gym couldn't make it and gave me her bib. It's a great run...Almost 2,000 people run in the 5k and 10k. It's in an underground cave - so it stays temperate. I haven't run this one since my first time two years ago. My chip was malfunctioning so I don't know my official time...But I'm pretty happy with my performance...I wish I had gone to bed earlier. I also plan on running at least 4 other 5k this year...
Wishing you a great week!!!! Welcome new followers!!!!!
