I’m so excited to EAT FRUIT today! Wahoo!
I’ve been on a “healthy cleanse” diet the past couple of weeks and today we get to add in fruit. I’m so happy about it.
I’m sorry to say the first fruit I ate was half of an overripe banana. Ewww.
I ate my typical (weird healthy cleanse) breakfast this morning; eggs + chicken and guac. I didn’t take a pic today, but here’s a pic from a couple days ago,
After breakfast, I went to my 9:00 class at the gym. It’s the same class I go to on Saturday morning and it is SO HARD. Freak! Even though I go to this class twice a week, I’m always amazed by HOW HARD IT IS. Man!
In fact, I told Kev the other day that I’ve decided I hate this class. Hate is a strong word, but I kind of really do. I love the instructor and I’m so grateful she works every single muscle in my whole entire body to a pulp, but I really dread the class.
In fact, on Saturday she literally killed me. We did a million one-legged dead lifts and then about 900,000 forward lunges while holding dumbbells and then bending forward and tapping the dumbbells on the floor near the foot with each lunge (I don’t know what in the heck this move is called, sorry!) We seriously spent about 15-20 minutes just doing different variations of these two moves. I was dying.
Needless to say, I’ve barely been able to walk the past two days. Holy crap. I wince every time I sit down or walk down the stairs. It’s pretty awesome.
Soooo, even though the class is HARD, I’m grateful I’m able to go. The instructor often says things like, “You guys want this class to be hard!” and “If it was easy, you wouldn’t come!”
Very true. I still kind of hate it though.
Anyway, after my workout I ate my overripe half banana. I also had a couple protein balls. Yum.
Here’s what I ate for lunch,
A random protein shake (1 C. unsweetened almond milk, 1 scoop vanilla protein, 1 spoonful natural peanut butter, 1 tsp. or so honey, a little almond extract, 2 big handfuls spinach and ice!) with a few peach and pear slices. The pear was heavenly, but the peach….not so much. :-( Fresh peaches are one of my favorite fruits, but it seems hard to find ones that are juicy, sweet and flavorful! I think I just need to buy a peach tree!
Well, other than that I’ve just been snacking on more protein balls (I seriously have a problem!) and the other half of my banana!
I gotta quickly share a few pics from last night. My kids begged me to make chocolate chip cookies! Dang. I decided to make them AND make a batch of “legal” peanut butter cookies for Kev and I.
I also enjoyed a yummy salad last night. It’s so funny, but whenever I sit down to eat a salad lately, I immediately have a “best friend” right next to me! Yes, my sweet little two year old is a salad lover! He used to just pick the olives out of my salad, but now he asks for the “leaves.” It’s so cute.
Well, I need to go figure out what in the heck we’re having for dinner tonight! I’m also looking forward to watching the last Presidential Debate! I’ve been a little bit of an election addict. It will be nice when it’s all over….as long as “my guy” wins!
Have a wonderful night! xoxo
