71 Days Out

Yesterday was pretty uneventful.  I was very tired all day.  I just felt run down and no energy!  It is to be expected that I will have these days (each month) and I just have to try to plow through them and do whatever I can do!

I did 45 minutes of morning cardio on the elliptical at varying levels of incline and resistance.  Then I ate some oats with protein! (Surprise!)  This picture, I took a week or so ago, turned out so good that I may never take another picture of oats with protein powder again!  I have been told by several people that the picture of the mixed up oatmeal looks disgusting, so I tried to take a more appetizing picture! 


I did not feel like going to the warehouse, nor did I feel like lifting weights.  Justin decided to start the Insanity Dvd’s and yesterday was his Day 1.  So, I got my fanny down there and did it with him.  It was hard and I was tired, but I’m glad I did something.

After that I was STARVING, so I made some shrimp stir fry!  It was sooooo delicious!

I didn’t do much of anything yesterday. A lot of laying around thinking about all the stuff I need to get done! 

Meal #3 was egg whites and gluten free toast.

Meal #4: Taco salad

I was craving some chocolate and peanut butter pretty hard yesterday.  I had to whine into Justin’s chest while he hugged me over it.  It was a low point.  Justin was snickering while I was whining. 

I ate a couple of whole pickles and chewed multiple pieces of sugar free dessert gum, trying to snap myself out of it.  Nothing was working.  So I made this:

It is one scoop of chocolate protein powder mixed with just enough almond milk to make it like pudding and then one tablespoon of no sugar peanut butter.  I was in heaven.  I could have eaten about three more servings.  I took little bites and savored every single one of them, letting the peanut butter melt in my mouth.

I LOVE peanut butter.  While I am allowed to eat peanut butter as part of my competition diet, I don’t trust myself with peanut butter so I just stay away from it completely.  Yesterday, I had to make an exception.  This little concoction was just what I needed!  I went about the rest of my afternoon with not another thought about peanut butter M&M’s!  Justin was craving something sweet later in the evening, so I made him one.  He was not as impressed.  I was jealous of his serving!

For dinner, I wasn’t that hungry so I just had a veggie salad.
