I didn’t think I would or could ever do what I’m doing right now. Measuring out my food portions. Right now, I’m sitting down to a dinner of 1/2 a cup of edemame, 1/4 cup of boiled sweet potatoes, and two veggie enchiladas, minus enchilada sauce (one enchilada = 2 tsps of cottage cheese, 1 tbs chopped boiled spinach, wrapped in a corn tortilla) OH! And I decided to start the week off with a small treat to myself! Half an glass (4 oz) of ginger ale! Whoop dee doo. (sarcasm)
Went for a long 30 minute jog with 1 minute sprint intervals every 5-8 minutes. I felt I needed to because I’ve been eating all day. In between breakfast and lunch, had an apple and some carrots every two hours. I feel so bloated. (sarcasm again)
In all honesty I feel satisfied and nourished. At the moment I’m just munching down on my dinner, and not wolfing it down like usual. Actually almost feeling a bit full after the first enchilada.
This week’s workout is going to be dedicated to a full body MMA style workout. Haven’t done one of those circuits in a while. Right after standard weight sets, going to be doing a lot of ground and pounds, heavy bag training, tire flips, and shin conditioning. Can’t you just sense the excitement?
Make your veggies more appetizing. After boiling them, douse them in cold water real fast so they maintain their color and texture!
