Recovery...

Wednesday Recap:

So the reason for no Tuesday recap?  Well...it started strong enough and I was busy all morning, that kept me on the move.  But come 2:30 o'clock, I had completely succumb to the snack bug.  I WAS hungry, but not hungry enough to justify the round of chocolate, cantaloupe & chips (chocolate, sweet & salty, you see) that I managed to chow.  Then dinner ended up being a very uninspired pile of MORE tortilla chips, melted cheese, shredded lettuce (my heart) & avocado....cause I just felt too BLAH to cook anything beyond that 1-minute, "junky" dinner.

Blah.

So after thinking about the day, I realized the only thing I DIDN'T do on Tuesday morning that might have set up that craziness:  No coconut coffee!  EEEK!  Could that really have been the culprit??  The one thing that took my normally peaceful 'mid-afternoon' brain and turned it on its ear??  Don't know for sure, but best BELIEVE I chugged a cup yesterday morning and focused the rest of the day on "recovery" eating, aka-only eating when I was hungry and trying to make it healthier JUST to MENTALLY feel better after a blah day.  

Breakfast:  
The SWEETEST cantaloupe in the land and HUGE, in season strawberries...swoon.  I usually try to eat protein with fruit to keep blood sugar stable, but having this alone just felt very 'calming.'


Workout:  2 mile Walk away the pounds with 8 & 4 pound weights
So I mentioned on my FB page yesterday that I think I spent the prior 48-hours making every excuse in the world to NOT workout.  It was amazing how I was finding myself CLEANING over JUST starting a workout.  WTF?  Soooooo unlike me, even if admittedly the FIRST step of JUST STARTING is always the hardest.

Eventually I DID indeed take that first step and....proceeded to curse nearly the entire half hourJ  The culprit was the understandable none too fun 'stomach tightening', but THIS was the only thing that got me through the ridiculously-short-I-shouldn't-complain 30 minutes:
J
I just knew I'd MENTALLY feel better after getting those 30 minutes in, since 'walking off the pounds' is kinda laughable at this pointJ  It should be called "Walk so you don't feel like an Oaf" at the momentJ  Cursing & hating life aside, I definitely felt better after I was done.


Lunch:  Frozen yogurt
Tried to keep the 'splurge' part of frozen yogurt in check and just enjoyed a bit cause I knew it was THEONLYLUNCHONTHEPLANETIWANTED while running errands during lunch hour yesterday.  



In the mix:
  • Chopped kale 
  • Craisins
  • 4 oz. diced goat cheese
  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 1 diced avocado
  • Sliced almonds
  • Dressing:  
    • Juice of 1 lemon
    • 1/4 cup olive oil
    • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • salt & pepper


And after this salad took me about 3-4 minutes more to whip up then those 'junky nachos' I mentioned above, I told Scott I was so mad at myself at that moment cause that salad was SOOOO good that I could have eaten it every night.  It really was soooo darn good with all the cool ingredients and variety of textures.  And enough for lunch leftovers today = even better! 

Well, Katie requested I sit with her and we are squished on the edge of the couch together, rendering me typing this post up while suspending my arms mid-airJ  My cue to skiddadleJ

Have a great Thursday!
