Welcome back to the week! I definitely am improving, but I’m still sick 🙁
Just trying to get back to normal as quickly as possible, but I know not to push it!
I spent yesterday just catching up on chores around the apartment and surfing the web. Phoebe and I did stop by G-Mama and Pop Pop’s for a little bit, but I ended up falling asleep on the couch. My body is just beat!
At home I added a new Board to my Pinterest account: Workout Gear. It features the things I use in the gym or my “essentials”. My favorite workout pants, tops, sports bras, even the hair ties and deodorant I use! I will be updating it all the time with products I use and buy. My shopping addiction besides food is workout gear, which I justify with hey I’m in the gym everyday! Seriously I don’t know what normal clothes are anymore. I’m either in scrubs and a white coat or gym clothes! Jeans? Dresses? What are those?
Since I don’t have many pics to share, I thought I’d share this cute little picture I saw on Instagram that I reposted. You guys know I always say I go into “beast mode”
I completed my meal prep pretty early, usually I’m doing this until 10pm, but since I haven’t been able to workout, I knocked it out at a decent hour! Chicken breasts, salads with cucumbers, peppers, asparagus, sweet potatoes, and zucchini. The breakfasts are my typical greek yogurts with berries and goji powder sprinkled on top, then cottage cheese and jams.
My dinner included almond crusted chicken tenders. Sadly I ran out of almond meal and didn’t feel like crushing more, so I just used a little panko and coconut for the others!
I also ended up having veggies which didn’t make it to the pics
And made some Skinny Minnie Homemade Granola! I was worried it wouldn’t turn out because I didn’t have a ripe banana, so I used applesauce instead
Hmmm will this work?
Mixing with hope
I also had a “jimmies explosion”, yes I call them jimmies, they are NOT sprinkles! Phoebe said hey let me get that…
————– this is my line for when I want to transition to something but have no idea how to do it 🙂
Remember how I showed you I was reading US weekly the other day? Well for anyone else that read Snooki’s article on how to lose weight I BEG OF YOU please do not follow what she does. Super unhealthy, I was appalled they printed it. She pretty much starved herself (I understand she’s petite but 1100 calories is not enough), and did hours of cardio to get down to a small frame. You ask anyone who has done this, they never can keep it up! Either the body gives up first, or you give in and binge like no tomorrow. Not that anyone out there would take advice from Snooki, but ya never know!
I really hope this week goes fast! The following week I have to work Friday, which means I have a 4 day weekend after this week. Going to be so nice!
