Oh how I normally hate Monday’s. (Please tell me I’m not the only one) They’re the busiest day of the week for me. Whether this is because of the workload that comes in over the weekends for my job or just because the rest of the week feels like it’s so long, daunting, and never ending I’m not sure.
However, this morning I felt rejuvenated and ready for the week. I woke up this morning (early for once in my life) and was able to accomplish everything that needed to be done before heading to work. I always used to think that no matter what I did I would always be late to work. There’s just something about me, I’m habitually late – to everything. I’m sure I’ll also be late to my wedding and funeral. Y’all… I was early for work! Mini victory for the day. Sad, I know.
Once I’m off work, I’m heading straight to the gym! I find it easiest to go straight from work rather than go home, change, and then head to the gym because then I don’t feel like getting back in the car and facing all of the traffic. Plus when I get there from work there usually aren’t a lot of other people working out at the same time. You know what that means! No one has to hear my unbelievably loud panting! SCOREEEEEE.
Like I said in my previous posts, I’m going to be focusing on cardio while in the gym. I’m still going to knock out the elliptical, but I’m going to try and push myself to go further than 2.5 miles in 30 minutes (usually about how far I go in that time frame). Then I’m going to work on another cardio machine. I’m not sure which one yet. Question: Which one would you guy recommend?!
I just finished lunch and it was really good for the most part! I made grilled chicken with a garlic citrus sauce for the week that’s low-carb, I’m highly impressed! I also had cucumbers with zesty Italian dressing and then carrots with ranch. I could only eat half the carrots that I packed because I literally hate carrots. I don’t really like vegetables if we’re being honest with each other. However, I know I need to eat them so I’m trying.
There’s two things in life that I won’t give up whether I’m on a diet/lifestyle change or what have you: Mayonnaise and ranch. I’m literally obsessed. While I only have them in moderation now and not nearly as much as I used to I refuse to give them up completely. I feel like I ate them when I was skinny so I can continue even now while I am losing weight. Question: What are your non-negotiable items for giving up food?
Until next time warriors,
