...which is exactly what I needed physically & mentally to get the job done. My trainer added stuff to my meal plan; as previously discussed, I've been lacking in energy for exercise. But I didn't realize how badly I felt for so long. After about 1.5 days on the revised plan, I had tons of energy. Or maybe a normal amount of energy. It was an immediate difference & it was great.
Tuesday night, I had to balance my desire to stick to my plan against a birthday dinner for my friend. In Italy, you're crazy if you don't get the pasta/pizza. But if you're trying to lose weight, there are only so many carbs you can eat. And that's not very many carbs... trust me. So instead of caving to craving, I made good food choices.
|Starter: mozzarella di bufala & prosciutto|
The next day, it was back to the regularly-scheduled meal plan. This now includes black beans. I've never had black beans before; I'm not particularly bean friendly. But I agreed to try it to help mix up the flavors. I didn't realize the corn was off the plan, so I fixed it the next day. Yes, those are onions in the pan. I'm even eating onions now!
|Took a bit to get used to, but now I love it!|
|Though she be but little, she is fierce.|
And Friday, it was weigh-in time.
|Here's something I haven't seen in a long time!|
And today was LSD #2. This is the Do-Over. I didn't realize I skipped a week in my training, so I got to do Week 2 over again. This gave me a chance to re-do the disastrous 5-miler of last week. Which was great considering I didn't make it 5 miles.
|It's 6:45 AM & I'm ready to go!|
Happy Saturday everyone & log great miles!
