3 o’Clock Meal

Wow! I had an awesome day yesterday!

I started the day with Title Boxing.  Cisco had an awesome playlist on and I felt pumped the whole class.  The music was so loud, I had to watch him to see what we were supposed to do next because I couldn’t hear anything he was saying. Loved it.

I really should think about wearing a hat (and dying my eyebrows again!)

I came home, ate, got everyone up and ready for the day, then headed to the gym to meet my friend for a leg workout.  When I told her we were doing legs, she mentioned some exercises she wanted to incorporate.  I remembered Diana posting a leg video a while back and thought it would be perfect.

It was fantastic!  I highly recommend trying this one out.  Check out the link above to see the video, but I brought the above list to the gym to help me remember the order of the exercises.

Back at home, I ate again and then Justin and I leashed up the girls for a walk.

We grabbed some sushi for lunch, but that was it for the day.  I was so sore and tired, I didn’t do much else.  I geared myself up for the 3 o’clock carb craving.  It definitely came but I was in control and ate a chicken breast instead!  There was definitely some self talk that occurred.

I tried telling myself the following things for why I deserved carbs:

  • I worked out so hard this morning
  • I am still burning calories so I’ll eat right through the ones I am going to eat
  • I am not going to gain weight off this one meal
  • who cares, just eat some chips
  • I am too tired to heat anything up, cereal is easier
  • the almond milk is going to go bad if I don’t use it for cereal

Seriously.

I also drank a lot of water yesterday and some BCAA’s during Title Boxing.

Dinner was another challenge.  Justin ordered pizza for our group home and himself.  I really wanted him to order me some chicken wings, but I ate a chicken breast with brussel sprouts instead.

For my meal, I ordered a sushi and sashimi bento box.  I gave Justin my crab rangoon and didn’t eat the rice balls under the sushi.  The fried part of the box is shrimp, sweet potato and zucchini tempura.

I wrapped up the day with some TV and watching Shark Tank.  How about that 15 year old girl with her sister and her Mom! Super excited for them!
