Was it worth the price? I think so. It was a great experience. Lori had a post that really stuck with me. Is (insert whatever here) worth the price? Is being 130 pounds worth the price it takes to get there? Or is 140 pounds better for me? Is an occasional date with my hubby to a fancy restaurant worth a temporary gain on the scale? It makes you stop and think. Thanks for the post, Lori.
Along those lines, I've been putting off weight training even though I have a plan and the weights. Why? It's so silly I kind of hate to admit it: the scale. I know that when I start working with weights I'll gain some weight. Yes, it may be temporary but it bugs me. It'll be worse when the muscles are sore. I told you it was silly! But I like the way I look when I have muscle definition so I'm willing to pay the price even though there will be a scale upset. I'll be starting weight training again May 2. Next week is going to be a crazy week so I'm not going to set myself up for failure.
Eats: made an effort to get my minimum protein requirement today
Breakfast- coffee and cream; 2 eggs scrambled with cheese and bacon bits; almond milk with protein powder
Lunch: tuna on salad greens with Italian dressing; almond milk with protein powder
Snack: carbmaster strawberry yogurt
Dinner: Baked cod, spinach with cream, strawberries
|Cod wasn't that great. Too bland. Need to find some new fish recipes.|
|GROSS!!!! I'm off fish for a little while. Bleck!!|
exercise: a little 2 miles bike ride.
I've also been doing a 15 minute clean fling every day this week with the kids. I set the timer for 15 minutes and we set about cleaning. The goal is to get as much done as possible in those 15 minutes. Believe it or not, you can get a lot done in that amount of time! And it's not so long that we dread it.
Have a groovy day. :)
