Days like today are always a challenge. Eating right, not drinking too much...you know the drill.
Most days I wake up after 10:30am, my bedtime is around 2:30am so it's understandable. My morning routine is straight to my coffee pot then I feed my dogs. I await my caffeine injection then head to check my emails and now faithfully the Fitness Ridge Bloggers. I'm not gonna lie, I sometimes find myself getting lost in the blogs. (Thanks to the bloggers; I really enjoy reading the information and the inspiration being shared). At some point after breakfast, I get my sneakers on and hop on my treadmill followed by my elliptical. It always feels great when I hop off the elliptical because I know I have accomplished my goal. Following a good meal plan is not that hard for me, as my daughter Michelle is a Nutritionist and has taught me a lot.
Michelle prepared for Superbowl by making a veggie chili. So I picked up some fat free hot dogs, buns and fritos for the hubby. I woke up at 9:00am today and instead of making coffee or feeding the dogs I grabbed water and went straight to the treadmill. Today I was able to jog for 3 miles straight without stopping. It is amazing how I am able to push myself a little harder each day. I followed my jog with making coffee (not ready to give it up yet) and feeding my dogs. I was able to get showered and make it to church on time. I did almost pass out in church as I didn't have breakfast.
I managed to survive the day with good eating, oatmeal for breakfast, (extremely late) chicken breast over salad for lunch and 2 hot dogs with chili for dinner. I even fit 1.5 glasses of wine into my allotted calories for the day. A bag of 100 calorie popcorn for a snack. And although I'm not a fan of football I was routing for the Saints, New Orleans needed a good win. So all in all it was a good day.
I am finding it hard to not talk about my healthy habits and Fitness Ridge, I may be slightly obsessed. I don't really mind, if that's what it takes for me to be serious and get it done.
In conclusion, I didn't workout as long as planned, or eat and drink exactly perfect, but all in all I consider today conquered and am happy with my results.
Lastly congratulations to the New Orleans Saints!!
