Day 15

I can't believe I've made it to Day 15!!

Breakfast: 3 oatmeal cookies
Snack: carrots and dip
Lunch: Pb & j, apple
Snack: 2 clementines
Snack: 1 oatmeal cookie, 1/2 hot dog weenie
Dinner: rice, Swiss chard, chicken, 1/2 potato, avocado

Workout: ALA, 20 minutes HIIT

My menus for the next couple of days will not be nutritionally sound because I'm poor and I'm trying to eat what's in the pantry and fridge (actually, I don't have much of a choice). But it seems to be working out okay for me. Except for those oatmeal cookies. I just didn't have enough time in the AM to get something with a little bit more nutritional value. But, hey, they had oatmeal and raisins. That's got to count for something.

The strangest thing happened to me yesterday. As I was finishing up my HIIT on the elliptical, I got this weird tightness in my chest. Not a painful tightness, more like an uncomfortable tightness. It was while I was doing my superfast interval. I'm not sure it was because I was hungry because right after my workout, I rested a bit then ate dinner and I started to feel better. Or it could have been because I was really pushing myself to go superfast and I just got out of breath. Whatever it was, it was pretty weird and I hope it doesn't happen again.

Just what I needed, another excuse NOT to work out. =/


  1. Oatmeal + raisins = perfectly healthy meal...come live in my world....it's fun there!

  2. You should take a picture of the contents of your pantry and let us help you come up with some meals. Wouldn't that be fun! LOL!
