Challenge: Day 1

Breakfast: oatmeal, apple
I was thisclose to messing up my week. I was running late and didn't have time to make breakfast. On my way into work, I was thinking I would just stop somewhere to pick something up (read: french toast sticks from Burger King). But I held fast, and just decided to eat what I had brought for lunch and then grab a salad at the grocery store. Thank you Lord Jesus, that there was a packet of oatmeal in my desk. I added a cut up apple to the mix and I was good to go.

Lunch: rice, hamburger (meat only), potato and veggie salad

In between: I had a tangerine but ended up throwing it out because it tasted scary; I was starving when I got home, so I had 2 slices of turkey

Dinner: rice, lentils, hamburger (meat only) (thank God they are finished!!), avocado

Dessert: piece of pineapple cake

Drumroll, please:
Workout: 30 minutes on the elliptical (I'm awesome, right?) I have really missed sweating buckets.

So my Monday was pretty good. Screw it, it was freaking awesome! I'm so glad I didn't eat junk food or fast food and that I got my workout in.

I am totally feeling this song right now. It made it onto my workout playlist and has so far been awesome. By the way, this vid isn't the official video, just a fan-made one.

  1. You rock! Way to stick it to the Monday! I hate those mornings when I'm running late and the temptation to eat badly creeps up...way to improvise though! Here's to an awesome week!

  2. Thanks for the love & WHOO HOO for staying strong on a Monday!

    Avoiding the drive thru & eating that oatmeal is such a small thing (well, it probably didn't feel like it at the time, but you know what I mean) but it could have changed your entire outlook for the day.

    Hope the rest of your week is just as fabulous & you feel great about it!

  3. Woo hoo! Congrats on an awesome first day! :)
