Ever feel like you just want to… sit down?
That’s pretty much how I’ve felt all day. Not even two minutes standing while waiting for rehearsal to start and I’m telling the girl I’m talking to that I need to sit down. Here I was expecting that I would want to kill ALL the things today… not so much. If anything, I’d like to kill the zits that have popped up on my face in the past couple days (normal initial side effect of the detox of the Whole30). Find me a floor or a comfy chair (or, even better, my bed) though, and I’m a happy camper.
Found a Starbucks after rehearsal so I’d be okay to go birthday shopping for one of my best friends. Again, I catered my usual choice to something Whole30 compliant. I have a fairly new love for Dirty Chai lattes, so this is an adjustment. What I did is get brewed Tazo Chai tea with a shot of espresso… and it’s actually not bad! Much better than black coffee. The spices make it yummy though still somewhat bitter. A good balance is all it’s about!
- Breakfast: 1/3 avocado with S&P, 3-egg omelet and a Pink Lady apple
- Snack: Modified dirty chai tea & almonds
- Lunch: spinach, sautéed mushrooms & shredded carrots, ground turkey — experiment gone wrong, won’t do that again
- Dinner: Blue Lemon Steak Griller, sans gravy and sweet potato fry substitute for regular potatoes
How I feel:
I got a lot of sleep last night–about 10 hours. Despite that, I still wanted nothing more than to go back to bed most of the day. Brain has been quite fuzzy; at one point, I almost felt buzzed even though I haven’t had a sip of alcohol. Quite strange. I also felt really snacky after noontime hit. Even after a pretty substantial dinner, I feel like I could eat more to be satisfied. Unless it gets bad though, then I’ll do something about it other than downing water.
And I’m going for Zumba tomorrow. Girl needs to feel good and Zumba seems like just the ticket.
Here’s my motivational share for the day from Health Advocation! It’s a great list for making healthy goals and how to stick with them. More of the process part of making resolutions and goals. Here’s a preview:
I agree wholeheartedly with everything except the weekly weigh-in. I “broke up” with the scale once I moved out onto my own, but I do remember the days I loved my weekly weigh-in when I was doing WeightWatchers. I just don’t like being tied to a number on the scale. Personally, I think it’s better to focus on being healthy overall and your “happy weight” will come. Everything else on this list is gold though. Go. Read. :)
Have a good weekend!
