Yesterday I had to drive to Beaumont to pick up Charlie from my parents' house where he stayed over the weekend. It's about a two hour drive for me and usually I don't mind road trips but I still hadn't fully recovered from the weekend or buying a new car on Monday. Taking a road trip in the new car wasn't the worst way I could spend a Tuesday. ;)
It was good to visit with my folks for a while. Plus she sent me home with 3.5 dozen yard eggs!! Nothing like FREE organic, free range, cage free happy chicken eggs.
Breakfast: scrambled eggs, spinach with coconut oil & jalapenos, leftover fajita meat.
Lunch: Subway since I was traveling. Steak salad, jalapenos, cucumbers and pickles with oil & vinegar
Dinner: chicken fajitas, sauteed onion and bell peppers, sour cream, cilantro and jalapeno rolled up in lettuce leaves.
And just before bedtime I had a small glass of Malbec.
Exercise: Day 6 of 3.1 for 31. Chuck and I got out there and walked our 3.1 miles even though neither of us wanted to at all. We were both tired and would rather had just chilled on the couch but I made a commitment to do this challenge. We were both grumbling and complaining a little at first but we found our groove and chatted while walking as quickly as we could to get it finished.
Last weekend I had a few things that no insulin resistant person should have. I'm looking at you, pasta dinner.
Monday I weighed myself knowing that there would be bad news because of water retention, hormones, and sore muscles. But it was so bad that my fancy shmancy scale didn't even recognize me! We're talking an 11 pound gain, people. Poof! In two days. That's ridiculous.
Fortunately the weight has dropped 8 pounds. I know there is still some water retention so it'll drop back down soon. Still it's not fun to see that big jump. At least it's going back down.
Today is more of the same: low carb foods and 3.1 mile run. It's a living. :) I have to get in shape for this summer because there are some really cute clothes that I've got my eye on. Plus there's wanting to be healthy and all that good stuff.
Have a great Wednesday!
