You know, everyone always complains about Monday is being so terrible, but honestly, what has Tuesday ever done for anyone?
Well, let me tell you, Tuesdays are Monday’s deceptively evil-er twin, and Tuesday has it out for me (and it’s only 7am!)
Guess who slept through all of her alarms this morning? Completely threw off my plan. I was pretty pissed. I almost threw in the towel on the whole day.
I had these thoughts run through my head like “well, you’re already late, you may as well just run to McDonalds and have a cheat breakfast.” I also have leftovers ready from last night’s approved dinner to take for lunch today, and I actually considered ‘forgetting’ them and running to Taco Bell for lunch!
I managed to turn myself around somehow. I took a few minutes to make my Shakeology and I’m so glad I did.
Today’s shake included chocolate Shakeology, 1 whole banana, 1 tsp. peanut butter, 1/4 cup whole milk, ice = 1.25 lean protein, 2 fruit, 1 healthy fat (I plan to start incorporating veggies too.) OMG what a difference! The banana alone is enough to mask that ‘health food’ taste, and the peanut butter/milk make it really creamy. I definitely didn’t have to fight myself to finish this one, and I actually feel really full this morning!
So, that’s my non-scale victory for the day thus far. I even brought my lunch to work, so crisis averted. I’ll be doing my workout as soon as I get home tonight, and cooking a new PiYo approved dinner.
If you’d like to get approved recipes, and updates throughout the day, I invite you to follow my Facebook page! It’s a super convenient place to keep up to date with me and my mess 🙂
P.s. – I’m freaking SORE! I definitely took it easy yesterday, and modified most of the moves… I did not expect to feel anything from it! Just goes to show that doing something is better than nothing, and modifying doesn’t hurt your progress! So get out there and get moving.
